A Prachuap Khiri Khan hamlet where visitors can leisurely observe about 200 wild elephants has been selected as one of 50 Otop “Local Way of Life” tourism villages.

 

Kui Buri district chief Chatree Chanweerachai said on Friday that Ban Ruam Thai, adjacent to Kui Buri National Park, had been selected for the Otop (One Tambon One Product) programme because of its tourism potential.

 

Residents lead tourist to observe the wild elephants and the many gaurs living on 1,500 rai of grassland and the animals are never disturbed.

Visitors also get to sample regional food specialities and purchase locally made products.

Well, if it encourages people to preserve the habitat, great. Potemkin villages have their uses. Just hope they keep to the "and the animals are never disturbed" rule.
