Huai Khi Lek Homestay Background

Ban Huai Khi Lek was established in 1965 on the ridge above Huai Khi Lek stream. To set up their settlements, the leader performed lots throwing of eggs to identify the sacred areas such as the sacred well, village gate and culture grounds. Their religious leaders and ancient ritual dances draw a number of tourists to visit the village. Thus, the leader adopted the idea of setting up a homestay to service these tourists and increase income to the community.
