When at the moment traveling in North Thailand you will see farmers preparing for the next rice season. I did write about it last week, it is that time of the year again, juist before the real raining season begins. The local farmers of Ban Hia are preparing the rice fields for the next season. The first thing is that the rice fields are cleared of the remains from the previous harvest of corn, vegetables, garlic, etc. Unfortunately most of that remains are burned. Then the rice fields are plowed and filled one time with water. Then they will plant rice that later will be replanted into a paddy with water. Now there are different ways of doing this first phase of the rice planting. Here you will see that the rice is first grown at home in containers and this containers are now put on the rice fields. And then covered with a screening. Following are more photos. For more information about Nan province see Destination Travel Guide Nan.

The World Is My Oyster

The journey of Traveling 2 Thailand did begin with One Night in Bangkok in 1985 and since 2009 it became a personal non-commercial travel blog as inspiration for traveling & motorbike riding in Thailand. Made just for the sheer love of traveling and sharing experience about traveling in South-East Asia. To travel beyond the beaten track & highlights. Enjoy!
