WHERE WE'RE BASED
Ubonratchathani is the easternmost province in Thailand and is the second largest of the seventeen provinces that make up Thailand’s most natural and underdeveloped countryside’s of Isaan. People native to the Isaan region are renowned as the backbone of Thailand’s driving economy with their strong spirit and nomadic behavior. Many travel far and wide to source new opportunities in the more tourist dependent areas of the north and south. Thailand’s labour force and agricultural industries thrive because of these strong willed people. Life in Isaan is an experience hard to capture and embrace for many. To fully appreciate this unique culture and the beliefs of local people here not only takes an open mind but also the right location in Isaan to embrace the cultural journey. Ubonratchathani is that location and is the base for all our educational programs because of its perfect balance or characteristics so important for getting to know authentic life in northeast Thailand.
Ubonratchathani is made of 26 Districts and 5 sub-districts. Amnat Charoen and Yasothon provinces border the north while Srisaket province borders to the west. To the east follows the beautiful Mekhong River and bordering Laos. In the south Ubon Ratchathani also shares its border with Cambodia making it a real cultural hot spot.
