I know about Akhajulyah guesthouse from my friends who had a great time while they were in Thailand. The information of the Akha family and their guesthouse on the website are very interesting. And YES, I had an amazing time there. I contacted Julie (the founder) and received a quick response from her. I was picked up from the airport by private car; one hour from Chiang Rai airport to the village, visit a white palace is a must. Beautiful terraced rice field, flourishing flowers can be found along the way and around the village. Be sure to bring a camera to capture their beauty when you visit. 4 days 3 nights living and enjoying Akha life: sleeping in a bamboo hut, learn how to harvest and grow rice in the rice field, cut bamboo tree to make furniture etc. A true experience and

I stayed at the Akhajulyah Guesthouse during my visit to Thailand and had a very good experiance. I wanted to see how the people of in the hilltribe in Thailand lives and was recommended this place to stay. There are different options for how long you want to stay and type of activities to do. You live in bambo huts and eat with the family and get to see they way they live and work. The people are very friendly and its a fantastic experiance. The other thing is that the money you pay for your stay goes to the family in the village. The women running it has built it for providing for them, so she only arrange for the stay and organize it but then money you pay goes to the family. I can recomend this to everyone and I am planning to return to the village on my next trip to

Real life in an akha family. An amazing experience where you can follow then and help out in their every day tasks. Basic conditions (squat toilet, bucket showers) but very clean. The money goes to the family and the village so it's for a good cause! Ama, the family mother is really helpful and kind... Had great fun, even if we had to understand eachother with many signs for she did not speak english (as most of the family, but thas a great part of the experience!)
