Akha Hill House Homestay

History

In 1987, Mr. Apae Amor and 5 families from his neighborhood migrated from Baan Pong Nham Ron and resettled in the downhill area of the village. One day he saw a Karen villager with tourists come by the village and he wondered how the Karen villager could communicate with western tourists. He had a strong interest in learning foreign language so he asked the Karen villager to teach him two English words and he noted them down. Later, there were more tourists coming into the village and he had some chances to expand his knowledge. While he worked as Luk Hab (private luggage carrier), he learned more, became an assistant to a tour guide, and went on to become a tour guide himself. In 1993, he started using his own house to accommodate tourists, eventually modifying it into a guesthouse. In 2007, he realized that a homestay program would also increase the income for other villagers;Thus, the villagers established a homestay in the village.
