There are two double rooms for guests in the house in Khonburi with king size beds and fan. Stay in an actual Thai home! It is located in a calm neighborhood but pretty much in the center of the little city Khonburi.

There are markets and shops, restaurants, the bus stop, and laundry service in walking distance and there is a car to give you a lift if required. There is a huge terrace to sit on and relax and a nice, shady garden with fruit trees. They grow their own vegetables.

The kitchen with refrigerator and coffee machine is there for your convenience. Bathroom and toilet are shared with the hosts. Of course, there is Wi-Fi, too. Please notice there are three dogs and a cat, so it would be great if you like animals or at least are not allergic or afraid (they don’t bite).

Earth Yoga Korat is a homestay with yoga that offers you something unique, Thai reality beyond mass tourism. The house is basic but very cozy and it's not built for tourism, but a normal Thai household. The city Khonburi does almost not know international tourists at all.

The sights where they take you are only frequented by locals. And that's basically the crucial point about the homestay, the real, authentic Thailand with the opportunity to meet Thai people who do not work in the tourism industry. It hosts a maximum of four guests at a time to keep a family atmosphere and the tourist impact on the lifestyle of the locals low.

In Khonburi, it is pretty off-the-beaten tourist tracks (easy to get to the place though, they will pick you up). People, food, and prices are authentic. There are no set up attractions for tourists. They can take you where the locals go, their markets, their temples, and introduce you to their lifestyle.

Also, you practice together with the local Thai residents in the living room which becomes a yoga studio every evening. You will be instructed in English, so you can easily follow the classes.

Included excursions

See the beautiful countryside of the Nakhon Ratchasima district through the eyes of the locals. All excursions will take you to sights the mainstream tourist would never reach. Earth Yoga Korat takes you by an air-conditioned car. All sights are no further than a half hour drive away from the accommodation.

The 100 Years Old Wooden Food Bridge in Kok Rachai village leads some 600 meters into the rice fields. Recently renovated, it mostly still consists of the original 100 years old tropical wood it was once built from. With a little bit of luck with the weather spectacular sunsets lead to fantastic pictures of this simply beautiful sight. A coffee shop at the end of the bridge invites to rest and enjoy the scenery.

Wat Khao Chom Thong at the edge of Thap Lan National Park is an evergreen hill with a monastery at its foot. From the parking there you will be hiking some 600 steps through the bamboo forest up to the plateau of the hill. The 360 degrees view over Thap Lan and Khao Yai National Park, the lake and Khonburi district is stunning. The plateau is known as a holy place and has Buddha footprints and a statue. After coming back down you have the option to enjoy a bath at lake Mun Bon with the locals and a lunch picnic.

The 700 years old Khmer temple ruins are located on the ground of a primary school and remind a lot about the temples of Angkor in Cambodia. Close to this site is a beautiful Thai style temple next to a pond full of Lotus. You can be sure your holiday pictures will be unique since almost no international tourists at all know about these fantastic places!

Retreat location

The yoga studio is located in Khonburi, which is a little town some 60 kilometers south of Nakhon Ratchasima (Korat, called the gateway to Isan) and about 300 kilometers driving distance north-east of Bangkok. Khonburi is right on the north end of Khao Yai national park, close to the lakes Mun Bon and Lam Chae. Most known in the region is the city Nakhon Ratchasima and the Khao Yai national park.

The area has everything but the sea. See the local temples, climb a close by hill and enjoy the breathtaking view over the area, which is surrounded by green hills and characteristic for its seemingly endless rice fields. There is all kind of Thai food, markets, and historical sights. There are the lakes with the possibility of a boat trip or the hundred years old wooden footbridge, leading into the rice fields, which became recently an attraction for locals to watch the sunset.

How to get there

Recommended Airports

Arrival by bus:

Pick up from Nakhon Ratchasima is usually on Wednesdays at 3 p.m. Meeting point is the Amazon Cafe within the area of the new bus terminal (Terminal 2). That way you do not miss the classes on Wednesday!

There are buses departing from Mo Chit Bus Terminal (Chatuchak) in Bangkok to Nakhon Ratchasima (Korat) all day long many times. Different companies do the journey several times a day. Usually, it is cheap and relatively convenient. At the new Nakhon Ratchasima (Korat) bus terminal (terminal 2) Earth Yoga Korat can pick you up by car!

Arrival by train:

The train in Thailand is fun and cheap and usually, you get a better view of the landscape than from the bus. Go to Nakhon Ratchasima main station and then (by taxi or tuk-tuk) to the new bus terminal (terminal 2) please. Earth Yoga Korat can pick you up from there.

Cancellation Policy

  • A reservation requires a deposit of 25% of the total price.
