As an expert in rural tourism development, Nahoko was very impressed with Ban Talae Nok, observing "Everyone welcomed us with plenty of hospitality. This is a unique situation compared with examples of community-based tourism I've seen in other areas. Ban Talae Nok values CBT highly and takes pride in doing it well."
She went on to note that “the overall coordination balance – tourism management, community participation, and the contribution to the whole society – in Ban Talae Nok is excellent. Each family helps and supports all visitors, even families that aren't acting as hosts.”
