Ban Khao Lak Local Customs: 4 reviews and 3 photos

Its has been a local custom (especially applies to fisherman) that when you have a whole fish for a meal, you DO NOT flip the fish over when you are done with one side. Instead you take off the fish bone and continue with the other side. It was believe that by flipping the fish over means "dead fish" thus not very good for business. Who wants to buy a dead fish???
