Attraction Details :
As there are numerous attractions in the area, home stay is an alternative for visitors interested in spending more than one day at Ban Prasat. The program was first initiated in 1996 and currently serves as the prototype home stay program for other villages across Thailand. The best time for a visit is between October and December when the climate is cool.
Ban Prasat villagers, like other villagers in the region, are mostly farmers. Because rice farming is done once a year, villagers use their free time to supplement their income by creating handicrafts such as weaving reed mats and hats, producing shoes and bags, breeding silkworm, and making Thai stringed musical instruments like So U and So Duang.
Paddy fields surround the village and a river, Than Prasat, which is considered a sacred river, divides Ban Prasat Nua and Ban Prasat Tai. For more information on home stay programs, contact the village headman Mr. Thiam Laongklang, tel. 0 4436 7075 or Mr. Charan Chomklang, tel. 0 4436 7062.
