Sakai Village, The Sakai live at Moo 3, Tambon Ban Rae, about 80 kilometers on the road to Betong. The Sakai is an ancient namad tribe who exists on hunting and gathering, is an expert on herbal plants and using darts for hunting. Their dwellings were originally made of bamboo, with thatch roof. Recently the Department of Social Work has developed the village by segregating the Sakai in one area and introduced rubber planting as their occupation. The Department also asked the Princess Mother for naming of the group with the family name of Si Than To. At present, there are a fes of the Sakai left at this village, the rest of the group has moved to other areas.
