Baan Phu Thai Khok Kong

Baan Phu Thai Khok Kong

Kalasin

This small community is located at the foothills of Phu Phan Mountain in Kuchinarai, Kalasin province. Baan Khok Kong is a village with just over 100 households and a total of about 500 residents, most of whom are farmers.

The Baan Khok Kong villagers live simple lives. For their staple food of rice, they plant their own glutinous (sticky) rice seeds at the backs of their houses which feeds the family. At other times, they forage for wild food in the mountains. Many of these plants can be used to make many tasty local dishes and some of them even have medicinal properties similar to common herbs.

If the locals need clothing, they know how to find cotton seeds for spinning and weaving into fabric for household use. These fabrics can be turned into many different locals styles of clothing with unique patterns that convey Thai unity.

The older residents also have an important role within the community. For example, they pass down their specialist weaving knowledge or when they have a visitor and an important ceremony, they hold a Yao Ceremony to give blessings and invoke the protecting spirit to return to the body.

If you want to visit a place that will help you learn all about living a simple, happy life, then Ban Khok Kong is one of those places. Get back to basics and learn how little you actually need to not only survive, but thrive.
