Need your hands to help out
our Home Stay, a place to play,to prey,to lay and to say as a"PARADISE JUNGLE"

Wichai, a retired Art Teacher and his wife Naiyana, a retired Biology teacher, their son Akapong with his wife Sao and also their daughter Earn and her little princess Jasmin. A local South Thai family with a passion for nature.

The reforestation eco project in South Thailand Surat Thani started 40 years ago when Wichai inherited a portion of his fathers land. This was the site of an abandoned tin mine. The former Rain Forest was devastated and no trees were to be found, only sand and the pit.

All the neighbors and much of the South Thailand, Bannasan district are full of rubber and palm oil monoculture. Sacrificing the Biodiversity of this once Jungle. The now reforested polyculture is once again teaming with biodiversity and the ecosystem has been reborn. Different plants can grow and support each other making a sustainable perfect balance.
In the Jungle there are dominant edible herbs such as Lepionurus sylvestris Bl. (very rare in others area)and Gnetum gnemon Linn, var Tenerum Markgr. The native jungle has returned giving back to nature and all of our kids.

Living in the jungle:
Our jungle is located 30km from the tourists and busy areas of Surat Thani, you have the opportunity to live among authentic and local Thai culture, which means getting to know real Thai people, the Thai countryside and lifestyle, and experience real Thai food (cooking and eating). As it is right now, you have the perfect atmosphere and locations to practice yoga, meditation, and physical exercise (like bodyweight training or volleyball), or simply chill out.
Furthermore, the jungle surrounds a beautiful lagoon, giving you the opportunity to swim or sail, or just simply admire the amazing view.
Also at the mini shop nearby our place you can find some facilities.

Wichaiís Vision:
Wichaiís vision is to ultimately realize the full potential of the jungle, and offer a place of quiet and reflected contemplation for those who are tired of living amongst stress, noise and the everyday weariness of city life. Or simply for those who desire to stay in a more natural environment, where you can live closer to the wild nature. The goal is to create an environment with waterfalls, pools, recreational areas with a multitude of physical and creative outlets to help you recharge and rejuvenate yourself in this little piece of Paradise.
