The 2nd floor has a view of the farmland, forest, and mountains and 3 dorm rooms (3-4 people per room). There is a bathroom in each room, a small kitchen and common space on the first floor. The house is situated in a private family farm owned by a local Thai lady, who is the owner of Maewin Guesthouse & Resort. The farm is a few minutes walk from the guesthouse and all guesthouse facilities are also available to our students (i.e. dining area, common resting area, cleaning service, etc.).
