.The story of Kitt our guide and his rice farm
The name of his farm is Tigerland which is named after the great grandfather of Kitt who was respectfully called Tiger by all the Karen villagers. Legend has it that Tiger was a brave man who fought and killed a tiger who had wandered into the village to hunt prey. It’s a legendary story told too every generation of the Watasittikul family so one will forget the origin of the name of their land – Tigerland.
The rest of the story is best heard from Kitt about Tigerland around the camp fire.
