A prayer to Phrae in Thailand
Rural Tourism Plan, Phrae Thailand 2020. I recently assisted as an expert member of the Southeast Asian Cultural Heritage Alliance (SEACHA) to come up with a tourism action plan for enhancing tourism opportunities and services for historic region of Phrae in Northern Thailand. The presentation I made to local representatives was well received and I am hopeful that further contact will help hone the proposals. Phrae has a relaxed vibe that needs to be carefully managed in any tourism development, along with its unique timber industry heritage from the late nineteenth century. The beautiful hand carved facades of the vernacular buildings are sometimes to see!
