Attraction Details :
This village is famous for its craftsmen who build traditional Korlae boats. This type of boat has been used by the fishermen of Pattani and Narathiwat for centuries. The distinctive characteristics of the Korlae boat include the narrowing of both the bow and the stern and its colorful decoration. Besides the life-size boats, the villagers of Ban Paseyawo also make miniature versions as souvenirs. The design, building and decoration of the boats by the local people is a fusion both Malay and Thai cultures. Ban Paseyawo is also reputed for producing the best southern-style Budu fish sauce in the area.
To get there, take Highway 42 just outside of Pattani town heading east for about 20 kilometers until just past the village of Yamu. Turn left onto the road to Panare for about 14 kilometers.
