A traditional Thai Muslim fishing village, Ban Thon is located approximately 16 kilometers from the city. The village is a well-known center for production of real and miniature Korlae boats, which is considered to be an exquisite form of local art. Boys over 13 years old traditionally make the miniature boats, costing from a few hundred baht to 2,000 baht.
Moreover, some children spend their free time making these miniature boats.In addition, products made of Krachut sedge and Annonaceae leaves are also sold here. A few popular products are colorful and exquisitely designed eyeglass holders, bags and mats.
They are value-for-money souvenirs ranging in price from 30 baht to a few hundred baht.Other renowned village products are the sumptuous Budu sauce and fish crackers. Along the beach visitors will see lines of dried fish and many Budu sauce vats.
The sauce is used extensively in southern cooking, similar to the use of fish sauce in Thai cooking. It is possible to see how the sauce is made and purchase some as souvenirs daily.Visitors please note that on Fridays, villagers go to prayers and take the day off. Therefore, it may not be convenient to buy things on Friday.
The village is located at Tambon Khok Tian, around 16 kilometers from the town on Highway No. 4136 (Narathiwat-Ban Thon).
