Ban Nam Sai, Lam Kaen

Note that in many hotels, especially the high end ones, the actual Reservation staff only work on Mondays to Fridays 08.00 hrs to 17.00 hrs local time. These time restrictions can be rather unfortunate if someone has queries prior to arrival, but that is just the way it is.

After the tsunami many of the local villagers' homes, close to the original Khao Lak beach at Lam Kaen, were destroyed. Many villagers also lost their livelihood ( working as fishermen, working on rubber plantations or working in the tourist industry).

Her Royal Highness Princess Chulabhorn Mahidol saw to the construction of new houses for those affected in a new community development. She gave the new name, Baan Nam Sai, (meaning clear water) to this Lam Kaen community, located at Moo 2 Tambon Lam Kaen. Ban NamSai is close to the original village of Ban Khao Lak.

Ban Nam Sai

A community-based tourism group has been formed to generate household income and they have created a home stay initiative. This is one of the best ways a visitor can gain authentic insight into the local culture and daily way of life of Lam Kaen villagers.

There are also several activities offered - treking, batik workshops, long-tail boat trips and seasonal activities such as rice planting.
