Old settlements of Siamese people in Malaysia

A photographic report of a study trip, organised by Walailak University in Nakhorn Sri Thammarat, Thailand, in February 2011 is now online on the SEACOM homepage (click on “Exhibitions” under “Culture”).

The purpose of the trip was to explore old settlements of Siamese (Thai) people in Malaysia, particularly in the provinces of Kelantan and Kedah. We also met residents living in these communities and had the opportunity to interview them and to participate in their daily lives.

The second part of the photo report also contains links to academic research materials related to the topic of Siamese settlements in Malaysia.
