Meet up at hotel lobby (in Bangkok area)
Arrive at Ban Khok in U-Thong District, where the locals are of Lao Krang ethnicity. They originated from the hills of Laos back in the days and specialize in agriculture. They use old-style bicycles to go places. They are big and iconic and you'll also get to ride them.
Let's ride Lao Krang-style bicycle. I will take you to pay respect to the "Ghost" of the village. The locals here believe that the Ghost is the protector of their community.
After paying respect to the "Ghost" at the shrine, we'll stroll around the rice fields and vegetable farms in the area. After that, you will get to make your own accessories from traditional beads.
For lunch, I will take you to a lush riverside restaurant. Enjoy great food with great views.
After lunch, I'll take you to Wat Palelai. This temple houses a gigantic Buddha that's highly revered among the locals in Suphan Buri ever since it came to be.
Next, we will visit the "Na Here Chai" or "Lifestyle and Spirit of Thai Farmers Learning Center". You'll get to learn all about Thai farmers' way of life.
