      • Rie
      • I was surprised by the villagers ’ intelligent idea of making flowers out of rubber leaves just because they had plenty of those dried leaves on the ground. Also, I was moved by artisans ’ kindness to support the economy of village by selling these flowers.
    • PERSONAL RESPONSE
      • Minako
      • I think it was a really great experience, because I learned not only about Songkhla Flower but also about Thailand. Also I was surprised that I have been Thailand for 8 years, but I still have lot more to learn about it.
