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

For the second time we visited Jimmy and Lamai at Lamai Homestay. This time with friends. Jimmy picked us up at the airport as agreed and Lamai served delicious food as always when we arrived. We did the tour to Phi Mai and the silk tour AND went digging for scorpions, spiders and frogs with Lamai and her mother. It... More

Just goes to prove the plumage of a place is all just a mere dress up, the expensive facade's mean very little to very few!! People actually prefer & appreciate the internal reality factor ,the experienced enjoyment, the exclusiveness, plus the warming affection shared in a visit to this our rural reality.All this in a relaxed,hygienic,comfortable European standards home plus...

My holiday would not have been as good without this home stay experience and I would recommend it wholeheartedly to anyone. Having someone to explain all the cultural differences, religious practices, politics, etc., was an unexpected bonus of the stay.

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.

Get away from traditional tourist area. We loved staying with Jimmy and Lamai, they could not do enough for us with comfortable accommodation, fantastic home cooked food and fascinating and informative local tours.

A great way to start a holiday in Thailand, away from the bustle of Bangkok and into the quiet but intriguing countryside. Jimmy was a great source of information which showed both his love for the country and its people and his tolerance and acceptance of life there as it is. I was impressed by his desire to make a...
