Thailand Culture – Massage

Thai massage - Thailand Culture

Thai Massage is considered among the best in the world, and is an integral part of Thailand culture. It is a soothing way to unwind in the jungle. Our trained masseuses offer traditional Thai style massage, or a more relaxing oil massage. We have a beautiful wooden massage room by the river.

Learn more about Thai culture and massage at Wikipedia.

Duration: One hour

Tip:  We recommend traditional Thai-style massage – it improves circulation.

Thailand Culture – Visit the Village

Thailand Culture - visit the village

Very few visitors actually get to experience local culture. Working with the community of Khao Pang, we offer customized in-village programs.  Your local guide will take you on a walking tour to explore the temple, fruit orchards, and scenic hanging bridge. Join your host family to make a traditional Thai meal, with ingredients picked fresh from the garden. To extend the visit, you can do a homestay with your hosts.

Duration: depends on program

Tip: this is a non-touristic, beautiful way to experience Thailand culture!

Khao Sok Hot Springs

Thailand Culture Hot Springs

Looking for total relaxation?  The naturally heated water pours from the springs into tiled pools where you can sit and relax.  With a clean, modern style, the hot springs are a popular place for locals, so you get a taste of Thailand culture. The 15 minute drive from our resort includes a stop at a viewpoint with a dramatic vista of the Khao Sok valley.

Duration: 1.5-2 hours

Tip: The hot springs are popular with locals, so respect Thailand culture by wearing shorts and a shirt instead of a bikini.
