In rural Northern Thailand, decades-long state-led development programs have brought a multitude of economic, social, and cultural changes to village communities, significantly transforming their livelihood strategies and meanings. Tourism development has emerged as a new main source of income for many rural communities. This study investigates the development of tourism and the resulting changes in the socio-economic and cultural dimensions of a rural Northern Thai village—Mae Kampong, Chiang Mai—once known as one of the key producers of Mieng (fermented tea product consumed by local people), recognized as a key element of this northern Thai community’s culture.

The study focuses on and argues for the cultural role of Mieng production as a mainstay of village livelihood amidst the various changes that tourism development has brought. The continued vitality of Mieng culture in the context of the development of tourism in Mae Kampong shows how villagers have mobilized it for their livelihood survival and adapted to changes in the development trajectory and its impact on the social relations of Mae Kampong.
