    How could a decent economy bring stability to local residents in Thailand’s far South when the ongoing southern insurgency continues? The violence that erupted in early 2004 and has continued since has left thousands of people dead in its wake and has severely affected daily life of many of the locals who see their incomes sharply depleted.

    Muslim apparel and costume accessories made by villagers in the southern border provinces are one of the incentives that government-related agencies have been trying to push forward to compete in international markets so as to improve the quality of life of local residents.

    Members of local dressmaking groups have been trained to improve their skills in designing, tailoring, lacing and embroidering Muslim clothing, thanks to the Industrial Promotion Department’s Industrial Development Project for Muslim Costume Products in Thailand’s Five Southernmost Provinces.

    ‘Edible Mountain’ in Laplae, Uttaradit, Thailand 

    Uttaradit bordering Lao

    In Thailand’s northern province of Uttaradit bordering Lao, villagers in Laplae district call their local mountain the ‘Edible Mountain’. The residents say they earn extra income from it by leaving it to look after itself.

    The mountain surrounding a village in Mae-Pool sub-district is deemed a magical mountain by locals, as fruits there can grow well without fertiliser or being watered by man. Nature looks after itself and when the harvest season arrives, locals just go there and collect the crops. (More …)
