Story Behind The Image | Lampang Fisherman

Traditional Fisherman, Lampang, Thailand

Along the banks of rivers and streams around northern Thailand, Myanmar and Laos, local people still rely on intricate hunter-gatherer traditions for their daily subsistence and livelihood. Here in the small provincial capital of Lampang (where ICS operates tours to nearby UNESCO-recognized temples) a lone fisherman uses a unique looking net to capture small fish.

Along the river are a number of boutique guest houses.  In the high season, special sights like this one are quite common. Despite the growing economy and development of locations like Thailand, tradition and subsistence farming is still common-place, even in downtown areas like the photo above.

This photo was taken on the peaceful Wang river (which feeds into the Ping river that runs through Chiang Mai, another of our northern Thailand destinations).
