Laem Pak Bia Community


Laem Pak Bia Community


Laem Pak Bia community on the shores of the Petchaburi river bay sits at the heart of an invaluable marine ecosystem, which has been revitalized thanks to the Lam Pak Bia Environmental Research and Development Project, a generous initiative of the Late King Bhumibol Adulyadej. The Petchburi river bay has become a new community tourism destination, especially Ban Don Nai, a small-ship fishermen’s village famous for its fresh seafood, such as blue crab. Here, you can take a boat ride out to explore the fishermen’s way of life. Head back to the shores to collect clams from the muddy shore before tasting some delicious and flavorful traditional dishes of Petchaburi.

Culture and Local Heritage

The culture here revolves around the traditional fishing lifestyle in the Gulf of Thailand, harmoniously blended into the backdrop of the vast mangrove forest and the ocean.

The community’s local wisdom is focused around sea grape farming, the Laem Pak Bia environmental research and development project, which is part of the royal project, natural water treatment processes (such as a treatment pond, plant filters, an artificial wetland, and mangrove forest plantation). The latter is essential for allowing nature to heal by protecting the shoreline and ecosystems.
