Hello. I hope I am not creating a post which already exists but I cannot find a recent post for this
At the present I am travelling in Asia for a while and during this I am hoping to stay at some monasteries to gain insights into how they live and their way of practice.
Two places which I especially would like to go are Wat Pah Nanachat and also Wat Pa Ban Tat. Reading the information online for Wat Pah Nanachat it asks that a letter be sent to the guest monk ahead of any stay. The problem I have with this I don't have an address to receive a response as I reside in hotels for at maximum two weeks at a time and I have seen in other posts how it can take up to two months for the reply to be received also with it being quite a way to travel I would be uneasy about just arriving in the hope that it would be okay in case they are busy. If anyone has any ideas how I could get around this problem I would very much like to hear. I have thought of perhaps purchasing a virtual mailing address in Bangkok although they seem quite expensive per month.
I have some free time beginning in January so its from this time on wards I am looking to do this and I was not sure if this is a bad time of year. Any advice about visiting those two places I would very much appreciate
