At Wipa Farmstay you can do as much or as little you want to do. You can help with the morning chores, feeding the animals, tending the vegetable garden or just read a book, listen to music, have coffee and plan to do nothing for the day. You can try your hand at catching fish from the farm pond, take a bicycle ride through the countryside, take a herbal steam bath or try your hand at Thai cooking. The choice is yours and we can help plan your day if you want to step outside the farm and explore the area.

Northern Thailand is famous for the most beautiful of all Thai animals: the gentle, majestic elephant. The forests and mountains around Wipa Farmstay have a long association with elephants. The nearby village of Ban Chang means “village of the elephants” and was the centre of teak logging for centuries, with the elephants being an integral part of the local villages. The logging has ended and the elephants now have a new life. Visitors are invited to enjoy their beauty and take care of them in their natural environment. We can help you find the right place to experience these magnificent animals.
The scenic route
For a slower pace of life we can organize visits to local Buddhist forest temples where it is possible to assist in preparing breakfast for the monks, enjoy a herbal steam bath in a temple, go cycling through small villages to see the steady rhythm of Thai rural life, take in hot springs, visit renowned Buddhist caves and sample Thai food at local restaurants.
