Welcome to Lee Led, a small community in the heart of Surat Thani. What this modest community lacks in size, it more than makes up for in things to do and see. In fact, this area is known as the ‘Amazon of Thailand’ thanks to its rich array of mangrove forests.
Another important aspect of this village is the actual villagers themselves. The people living here have an indigenous wisdom to them, and are known to be able to predict things such as the weather much more accurately than weather forecasts, as well as knowing how to live off the land and make use of every part of the trees found here.
One of the best things about Lee Led is the millions of fireflies that live in this region. As twilight approaches, you can expect to see shimmering lights glowing from the fireflies – a bit like living in a dream.
