An elephant-tourism alternative has made headlines near Hua Hin.
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 says that Ban Ruam Thai, adjacent to Kui Buri National Park, had been selected for the Otop (One Tambon One Product) program because of its tourism potential.
The Kui Buri National Park is about an hour and a half drive south-west from Hua Hin.
Residents lead tourists 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.
