Introduction to the village
Rak Khao Baisri Community is an old community with a simple way of life according to the social conditions of agriculture or fruit plantation. Due to the abundance of resources and the accumulation of wisdom within the community, there was an opportunity to initiate activities and tourist attractions here. By bringing out the outstanding fruit orchards to the forefront of the main focus, the community was able to link the agricultural way of life to a truly amazing experience. Visitors are able to see for themselves that the orchards are clean, safe and delicious when they come here to sample life as a fruit farmer. Visitors will learn about various agricultural crops including ancient local fruits that are no less than a hundred years old, such as the ancient mangosteen and the tallest and largest ancient durian.
The Farmer's way of life is agriculture and so much can be learned here for any fruit growing enthusiasts. The fruit orchards consist of durian, rambutan, mangosteen, salacca (also known as snake fruit) which rely on water to grow. Therefore the wise local farmers made a tunnel to store water underground in order to have water for use throughout the year.
In the Rak Khao Baisri Garden, fruits are made into souvenirs such as peanut toffee, a famous product of the Chanthaburi Province.
Within the Ban Khao Baisri community, there is a general dress code which is described as calm and concise. This is because the local people here have to work in outdoor areas such as gardens, fields, forests, farms – their daily attire must be practical.
