Planting rice 2019 in Pua

Destination Travel Guide Nan, Thailand
Planting rice in Pua, North Thailand

All around us the local farmers are working in the rice paddies and I am very happy I am not a farmer. First they plant rice on dry soil and they grow that for about 1 month. Then they pull the small rice plants out the soil and make small bundles of it. In the meanwhile another rice paddy has been prepared and flooded with water. They then trow the bundles of rice plants into the water in a way that they are spread all over the rice paddy. Then they walk into the rice paddy and start planting the rice again in the new rice paddy. Wow so much work for such a low price of rice per kg! And I just realised that 99% of the people who do the planting are women. For more information about Nan province see Destination Travel Guide Nan province, North Thailand.
