Besides the famous flora and balloon festivals in northern Chiang Mai and the exciting fireworks festival in the beach town of Pattaya, the Jim Thompson Farm tour in the northeastern province of Nakhon Ratchasima is among the favourite outings for the entire family. Hailed as a destination of agricultural and cultural knowledge in Korat, the farm will open its doors to the public for a month, starting Dec 14 until Jan 12. Visitors can witness breathtaking views that are blended with authentic Isan's way of life, appreciate the biggest pumpkin in Thailand and more than 30 pumpkin varieties, take photos with flowery plants in full bloom, and pick organic vegetables from the plots to take home. As this year's concept focuses on "On Son Lai, Laai Pha Isan", there will be a related exhibition, which presents reinterpretations of 11 Isan woven textiles by students from eight universities and local weavers in Isan region. Entry fee to the farm is 120 baht (80 baht for children) on weekdays and 140 baht (100 baht for children) on weekends, including Dec 31-Jan 1. Advanced tickets come with special prices and can be purchased at Jim Thompson shops (at Surawong, Siam Paragon, CentralWorld and Emporium) and Jim Thompson House and Museum on Rama I Road. Visit www.jimthompsonfarm.com or call 02-762-2566, 044-373-116 and 085-660-7336.
