His Majesty the King - it serves as a set of principles or guidelines on the proper management benefitfor farmers who own a small piece of land.

The Philosophy of Sufficiency Economy
 First and foremost, to create an economic development strategy that is uniquely Thai. It is necessary to understand the special relationship between the people of Thailand and their monarch, His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej. Through his caring leadership, His Majesty has earned the abiding love and profound respect of his people. Through his thinking, he has laid the foundation for and inspired his country 's development strategy.
 Since the beginning of his reign, His Majesty has continually worked to enhance the livelihood of the poor. Royally-initiated activities include rural economic development projects, protection of critical natural resources, and resolution of urban problems such as water treatment and traffic.
Sufficiency Economy advocates taking the middle path in life as the optimal route for personal conduct at all levels. Individuals, families and communities. It counsels moderation. reliance, honesty and integrity, while exercising knowledge with prudence.
Asia Scenic is following in this philosophy and try to be "Sustainable Tourism"; it takes nothing from the environment and only augments, promotes and encourages spirit of the Thai Culture .
Asia Scenic provides a home-like atmosphere amid a peaceful and relaxing natural environment in a small organic kitchen garden or organic farm of the vegetables and herbs that provide health benefits for battling colds, headaches and anxiety.
 During the present times when people tend to use more alternative medicine, such as organically-grow vegetables and herbs. Asia Scenic is responding by providing the cooking knowledge and experience necessary to live a according to this lifestyle.
 
Sawasdee ka (hello). My name is Gayray, from Chiang Mai Thailand. I traveled around Asia and some countries in Europe after finishing bachelor’s degree (Thai Art and Culture, Tourism). After that, I worked as a tour guide and Thai cooking instructor. While pursuing my master’s degree in Art History.
I travel to get more experiences and to study in depht the culture throughout Asia.
When I have been in other countries, I have had amazing and very happy moments, but sometimes I can feel a little homesick.
My aim is to get rid of that feeling making you feel at home and enjoy true Thai hospitality making it the highlight of your holidays.
In our life time, we may have many dreams but we all have one dream that we really wish. For such as a small house with a beautiful garden. Waken up every morning feeling great seeing and hearing the beautiful songs from the birds. Not only hearing the animals. but also could hear the water fountain running and feeling very relaxing. It seems so peaceful in the house. That, you would want to the backyard for pick up some vegetables and other herbs for a meal.
 As for me, I also have those dream and now my wish has come true. So I would like to welcome everyone to share my dream.
 
About Asia Scenic Thai Cooking School.
In Thai tradition , most Thai people grow up with their grandma and so did I. I learned everything  from her. I can massage because when I was young she often asked me to massage her and  showed me the techniques.
Also cooking, I learned a lot from her and everyone in my family knows how to cook. My grandma cooked better than mom, but my mom cooks better than me. This is our inheritance, the living part of the genealogical tree. Asia Scenic is build up on recipes passed from generation to generation.
I’ve never though  I had to do everything that my grandma wanted me to do. But I prefer to do with the respect she deserve  (this is the Thai way and I’m proud of it)  There are many people who ask me “ Are you chef ? ” No, I’m not a chef. I’m a teacher. As I told you before, almost all Thai people can cook and if you want to cook like a Thai person, you surely need someone who can teach you the Thai way.
I always train all my staff in the same concept so they can be able to teach anybody how to cook, that’s very important. Especially because of so many different ways of Thai cooking, I try to do it in a easy way even for someone who have never touched a wok before.
 
I founded  my cooking school because I’m so proud of Thai culture, I finished  master’s degree in Art History, I was tour guide, I’m a journalist. I use to teach in a School and University and now I’m still a guest lecturer in art and culture of South East Asia.
Thai cooking is also culture. I don’t want to teach someone to become a chef,  but I want to teach  you how to cook Thai food at home in your own kitchen. It’s not only about learning how to cook Thai food in my class, we can share experiences and with that we will learn from each other, giving you a more interesting perspective about Thailand.
