TAKE YOUR VOTE!!! Best Spirit Houses-Thailand

you see em everywhere-here's a taste


While traveling through northern Thailand, it's impossible to noticed the miniture houses erected outside peoples dwellings. Some are simple, others elaborate-all are an attempt to get those spirits to stay happily taken care of within the spirit house and to keep them from roaming inside YOUR house...

You find them in the strangest of places sometimes. We found them not only outside houses and stores, but on long empty stretches of road, and on mountiain pathways while trekking.

Here are only a few of the thousands you'll find here in Thailand, But let me know what you think and I'll up date y'all on the one's most voted upon.

if you don't have a travellerspoint account, then email me your vote seaspotrun@yahoo.com

They are all so wonderful, but if I was a spirit in Thailand I would definitely chose number 9 as my house. It's beautiful!! Plus, it comes with chips and drinks. It doesn't get any better than that.

Although a tough call between 9 and 12.. im going to have to go with 9. Ceara is right -- can't beat free chip's and drinks!
