Baan Ku Ka Sing

Roi Et

Do you know where the grains you eat come from? Or even what living in a small, tight-knit community might be like?

If your answer to these is “no”, we invite you to experience the authentic rural setting of Baan Ku Ka Sing, Kaset Wisai District, Roi Et province.

Here, you can sit back and listen to some Klon Lam poetry, Isan proverbs and “Sorn Pan” poems narrated by local literature masters as they share the unique lifestyle and history of Baan Ku Ka Sing.

Then, take a tour to visit the ancient ruins that date back thousands of years in Baan Ku Ka Sing. Try treading on the rice paddy fields of Thung Kula Rong Hai where an abundance of minerals has made it renowned for producing some of the best jasmine rice in the world.

After seeing how the locals do it, there’s finally chance for you to try out some rice planting with your own bare hands!

Speak Isan Khoi Khoi Khoi Fang Thi Thi (Isan Telephone Talk)

Test out your team’s communication skills in Isan. Here, each team has to stand in single lines and the team leader at the top of the line is then told a moderately complex sentence in Isan dialect. They then have to pass on the message by whispering to the person next to them all the way to the last person. That’s when we find out how much is left of the original sentence.

Ku Ka Sing Face Activity

If you think your team has the best sense of fashion, join the silk-weaving workshop of Baan Ku Ka Sing housewives where you can mix and match your ideas with the “must-have” Ku Ka Sing dresses on models chosen by each team to compete in a grand fashion show to discover which team has “The Face” of Ku Ka Sing.

Volunteer Activities

We all know what scarecrows look like, but how many people have actually made scarecrows themselves? This activity offers a chance for everyone to confess their love to Thung Kula by making scarecrows as the rice harvest approaches. Once finished, farmers will actually pick their scarecrows and use them in their rice fields. So, bring all your skills and imagination for this activity.

Dream garden activity

Planting organic crops or vegetables is becoming a trending activity. However, at Baan Ku Ka Sing, these activities are already part of their daily lives. You will be visiting organic gardens and learning how to farm from real farmers. Or if you’re feeling really hungry, you can even pick up fresh vegetables from the garden to eat.
