Ban Lom Jen Homestay

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed November 5, 2013

We were at ban lom jen in august. It was one of the greatest places we have visited in Thailand. Jan and San are really warm friendly and helpful. We rented their scooter and did a great sightseeing tour of the white temple and a beautiful national park. San is a great cook and whenever we came back (even late in the evening) she would cook us a delicious meal. The rooms are nice, clean and spacious with a great sight on the rice fields. If you ever go to chiang rai, this is the place where you want to stay!

Ban Lom Jen, A quick 20 drive from Chiang Rai, clean rooms, big walk-in shower with hot water! Surrounded by rice fields and mountains beside the Kok river. Food was amazing and cooked to your liking(Thai spicy, or tame) lots of choice at a very reasonable price! They also have your typical western breakfast, and are accommodating to your tastes. There is also lots to do around the home stay elephant rides, hot springs, giant white Buddha, or just a tour of the countryside on a scooter. They have a scooter rental there cheap 250 baht for the day, there is very little traffic around this area so don't be afraid to try driving around I recommend it. They offer pick up and drop off from airport or bus station. The bugs weren't too bad when we where there, but could be a issue at some times of the year, bug spray would be a good idea just incase. Son and Jan are very knowledgeable of the area, and offer great insight for touristy things to do. A cab ride from the home stay to middle of town was around 160 baht.

The crickets and frogs could be bothersome at night but could easily be fixed with mild ear plugs, or the fan running to drown out the noise.

If your looking to get away from the loud city streets, then Ban Lom Jen is a place for you! Highly recommended would defiantly come back again, already missing Son's cooking!!!

Thank you again for all of your hospitality!
Sincerely,
The Canadians
