Photographer's Note

65 km north of Nakhon Si Thammarat is the small hamlet of Sichon with its colourful fishing boats and the deep green coconut palm groves. Clearly fish, in particular shrimps, and coconut are the major local product and source of income. The biggest employer must be the dockyard along the river where always a sizeable number of fishing boats are repaired. Further down the river there are large, colourful fishing boats lined up along spindly wooden piers. The hamlet itself consists of one main road and a row of old one-storey weathered shop houses made from the same rough wood the the piers. It is a quiet hamlet with very little action, where you sill feel and experience the Thailand of the 1970s or 1980s.
