Lamai Homestay is all about introducing visitors to authentic Thailand. Bua Yai is not an area of Thailand that is traditionally visited by tourists. Instead of crowded beaches package tours, or cities, it provides an insite into the Thai people and customs. The children loved hunting and eating giant spiders, watching villagers make silk (and having a go themselves), releasing... More

Lamai and Jimmy and their family were exceedingly welcoming making me feel at home from the beginning. I had asked to do the silk homestay and have a chance to learn all about the silk processes during my stay, and even though I booked last minute they were able to sort everything out for me. I was able to see... More

If you wish to experience authentic Thailand then this is the place for you - probably the only place you will be able to do so in comfort and with activities which are personalised to satisfy your specific interests.

This was a return visit for me. This stay I was joined by my 6 year old daughter, who is Thai, and wanted to introduce her to traditional Thai rural village life. We had a super time again. What we learnt during our stay you could never get from a guidebook. This is real Thailand away from the tourists. We... More

Stayed at Lamais with wife, kids (8 and 10) and mother in law for 3 nights. We had a great time there and both Lamai and Jimmy were so helpful and did everything to make us have a good and comfortable stay. Lamai showed us around in the little village and we visited the school. An other day, Lamais mother... More

This homestay is one of the best we have tried in our 2 month journey in Asia. I have been there 4 and a half years ago with a friend, and this time I went with my boyfriend, because I wanted for him to experience the place and family. The room and place is great, Lamais food is wonderful, but... More

Jimmy is a great story teller and tour leader. I got a good insight into Thai culture, delicious food, and a fantastic tour. I enjoyed being part of the extended family life in the Thai countryside. Couldn't have asked for more.
