However, the origin of the village’s name started long time ago. In the past, there was a kind of red-yellow flower called ‘Kampong’. Also, the atmosphere of the village is fresh because of its river. When we mix Kampong and river(**Thai language means = Mae Nam**) together, there comes the name Baan Mae Kampong.
Even Baan Mae Kampong became a tourist attraction now, but its identity never die. The trees, the flowers, and other natural resources are still as beautiful as it used to be. Also, the lifestyles of villagers are stil the same. They live simply and sufficiently. It’s no wonder why tourists love to rush there. Because they want to learn about local life, of course.
If you have inhaled too much car smoke, or any kind of pollution before, don’t worry. Once you reach Baan Mae Kampong, you will see the big big difference. Baan Mae Kampong has no pollution, instead it has fresh and healthy air. Fill your lungs as much as you want to!
