Activities

Depending on your time and interests there are a range of activities to choose from at Suan Lahu. You can make your own itinerary according to your interests. Enjoy a farm tour, visit our highland community, and take a guided hike. You can stay at the farm and learn more about coffee processing and even roast your own coffee.

We can also help you organize your own workshops, retreats, etc. Short 4-hour visits includes coffee, tea, and organic fruits. Longer visits include delicious homemade meals at the Bamboo Kitchen. Groups staying over during November - January can enjoy a traditional campfire.
