Best Homestay 2nd Runner up
Bo Hin Farmstay – Floating Basket Fish Breeding Community Enterprise, Baan Pru Jood
This homestay was formed by the “floating basket fish breeding” enterprise in Trang province. The area was renovated after the 2004 Tsunami disaster and subsequently turned into a seaside homestay. In this unique homestay just next to Sikao Bay, the airy, wide-opened houses all face the canal lined with hundreds of floating baskets. Here, you can learn all about this unique fishing technique while understanding more about the coastal ecosystem that stretches from the Sikao canal basin all the way to the mangrove forest and the emerald green bay leading into the open sea. Every story here is connected through the community’s fresh seafood – which you’ll be tasting for dinner, seasoned in the traditional way.
- A sightseeing boat trip around Sikao canal mangrove forest.
- Foot mud spa at the seawater hot spring next to the mud beach.
