When a tourist bus from Nakhon Pathom reaches the gates of Ban Phu Homestay in Mukdahan's Nong Sung district, villagers are lined up. Many of them grandmothers, dressed in ethnic Phu Thai costumes, they wai each visitor and greet them with a "Sawadee".

"Their homestay service is famous so 50 of us wanted to see their facilities and learn how they manage their resources," said a member of the tourist group.
