Homestay Koh Haad Sai Dam Ranong Thailand
Actually, in the past this island was rarely known by anyone. It was just a small and unrecognized island whose people just did fishery in old style and did not often leave the island.
However, not so long ago, Pan Tick Group and Mr. Sanchart Chinprat, the headmaster of Ban Koh Haad Sai Dam School have initiated the plan to erect Koh Haad Sai Dam Homestay Program. The aim of this program is to increase local peoples income and the strengthen the community.
At first, the center of this program is the school of the island. The project is called School Homestay; tourists would come to the island to appreciate the beauty of nature and lifestyle at day, and stay in the school at night.
Villagers would bring tourists to net fish and crabs, as well as digging clams, watching fireflies, and rowing through mangrove forest, while students would create souvenir made of wood to sell tourists so they can pay the school fee by themselves.
After a while, this project just expands to the villagers houses. Right how there are altogether 10 houses joining in this program.

Home to stay

Most houses are built high above the ground in order to prevent flooding when the tide is high. Inside there rarely are any facilities, only a mattress, a pillow, a mosquito net, and a fan. But all houses are clean and airy. Tourists could also choose to spend the night at school. There will be a camping site and a large hall to accommodate large group of tourists.

Food
Have a cup of coffee with Pa-tong-go (fried bread) in the morning. Then go net some fish and crabs for lunch and dinner. Here seafood could be cooked in very various recipes, all are quite spicy but definitely delicious. Moreover, do not miss trying Hoi-rak-dong (picked clam), which is the high light in Koh Haad Sai Dam menu.
