Lee Led

Surat Thani

Welcome to Lee Led, a small community in the heart of Surat Thani. What this modest community lacks in size, it more than makes up for in things to do and see. In fact, this area is known as the ‘Amazon of Thailand’ thanks to its rich array of mangrove forests.

Another important aspect of this village is the actual villagers themselves. The people living here have an indigenous wisdom to them, and are known to be able to predict things such as the weather much more accurately than weather forecasts, as well as knowing how to live off the land and make use of every part of the trees found here.

One of the best things about Lee Led is the millions of fireflies that live in this region. As twilight approaches, you can expect to see shimmering lights glowing from the fireflies – a bit like living in a dream.

Shrimp Paste Making Activity

Our special recipe uses yellow shrimp instead of regular, smaller sized shrimp. This will allow the shrimp paste to taste sweeter than general shrimp pastes. We start by drying the yellow shrimps in the sun. The dried shrimps are and then mixed with a touch of salt with a pestle and mortar into it begins to form a softer consistency. The mixture is then preserved for two days. After that, the paste is pounded further until a delicious shrimp paste is obtained. The locals can use the shrimp paste in main dishes and desserts such as chili paste and Thai green mango with sweet shrimp paste. The Committee will apply this information to create a new brand and packaging design for the community.

Sweet Shrimp Paste Contest

The local experts will be on standby to teach the traditional cooking methods to the contestants. Each team will then be asked to cook among themselves using a traditional stone mortar. The cooking method is very simple and involves adding onions and peppers, then followed by the shrimp paste, coconut sugar, and dried shrimp. The team which can prepare the tastiest dish that earns praise from the locals will be the winner of the contest.
