Do I guess right that this award was done by the Department of Local Administration, the part of the Ministry of Interior responsible for the local administrative units? Tomorrow I will post a short article pointing to this post on my blog, as I write on the administrative subdivisions of Thailand.


MaewNam, that is a logical guess, but not the case. The Competition (for a Good Place to Live in a sustainable environment) is run by the Dept of Environment Quality Promotion under the Min of Natural Resources and Environment. The awarding committee also includes the Association of Thai Municipalities and The Thai Environment Foundation.

In the small tesaban section the winner was

Rong Kham, Kalsin

and the 1st and 2nd runners up were Tesaban Tambon Dansai, Loei and Tesaban Tambon Phana, Amnat Charoen.

(There are also awards for bigger tesaban.)

Winner will receive award from the King or his representative in July. Runners-up receive awards from Privy Councillor Parakorn Suwanarat at Rama Garden Hotel on 7th March.

Many thanks for the pointer.


Lawrence what a delightful sight Rong Kham is, not a piece of litter in sight and everything has a place and looks orderly. Singapore would be proud of the town. Well done to its residents.


Martyn, you are right about Rong Kham being clean and tidy. But a lot of people find Singapore too perfect (I've never been there) and as a visitor I found it bland. But as a resident, I would be grateful for a clean,healthy place to live.
