RESORT PICK UP
We start to collect our guests from 9:30 am. You will be informed of the approximate time the minivan will reach your resort.
COCONUT OIL PROCESSING PLANT
Samui is known as the coconut Island, due to its large quantities and quality of coconuts. Here you will watch and participate in a demonstration on how oil is made from the raw product...the Coconut! The bet is on that you will learn so many health benefits about the humble coconut and the best part? You can start implementing the practices immediately for improved health, as you are free to buy the 100% pure coconut oil in various sizes.
ORGANIC THAI HEALTH FOOD AND MEDICINES
Next, we visit a Thai Organic business where our local host will prepare a fresh organic super juice of your choice and offer a delicious organic bliss ball. Relax back to enjoy and learn about the many traditional Thai herbs and medicines used for centuries and still very applicable in our everyday and modern society.
AUTHENTIC LOCAL THAI COOKING CLASS
Feeling refreshed, we travel on to visit a local Samui Chef who will share her herb garden with you explaining the many health properties of Thai herbs and where you will pick a few to use in your cooking class. Here, you will learn how to cook three Thai dishes, not only to enjoy for lunch but also taking away new skills to use at home.
Now it's time to give your feet a break so put them up for a relaxing foot massage and reflexology that improves circulation, stimulates your muscles, reduces any tension and pain .. and no extra charge for the odd snore or two!
AND FINALLY, TIME FOR THE SOUL
Our last stop is a spiritual one, at a prestigious Temple, or a Wat in Thai, to meet a resident Monk and receive a blessing. Feel the calm descend as the Monk sprinkles holy water while wishing you happiness and health, tying a sai sin around your wrist.
END OF TOUR
Feeling relaxed, and in a positive mood from learning new things about Thailand we get you back to your accommodation in time for a swim and Happy Hour!
