Lanna Thai Villa is located on the periphery of several mountain ranges and thus affords easy access to great views, scenic drives and on or off.road explorations by bike. Thoeng District is highly agricultural and hence the fields are constantly changing with the seasons and vary from emerald green in summer and fall to gold at the time of rice harvest in late November/early December. The increase in numbers of rubber plantations adds a new dimension to the rural hillsides with their neat rows of trees contouring across the landscape.
Within easy day tours of the Villa are the villages of various ethnic groups including Thai Lue, Hmong, Mien and Haw Chinese. One can enjoy visiting Lue traditional weavers or
learn about Hill tribe life ways by visiting mountain top villages. If ones timing is right the visitor can marvel at the festivities associated with traditional Thai or tribal New years celebrations
or the annual Thai Lue celebrations held in nearby Chiang Kham every March.
There are many traditional Thai temples in the immediate area as well as several that are one of a kind. Of the latter visitors enjoy the all teak wood Shan style Wat Nantaram in Chiang Kham and the ruins of Wat Sao Hin in Thoeng which has columns of stone as opposed to stucco covered brick.
