LOCAL COMMUNITY ROLES IN COMMUNITY-BASED TOURISM MANAGEMENT PARTICIPATION, CASE STUDY OF “BAAN KUDICHIN MUSEUM”
Kudi Chin (Thai: , pronounced [kūdīː ͡tɕīːn]) or Kadi Chin , [kādīː ͡tɕīːn]), also spelled "Kudee Jeen", etc. is a historic neighborhood in Bangkok. The place is located in Wat Kanlaya Sub- district, Thon Buri District, on the west bank of the Chao Phraya River, south of Bangkok Yai Canal. The neighborhood, according to the Ayutthaya period, includes communities of several faiths living in proximity. Currently, it is well-known for the Catholic community (mainly of Portuguese descendants) around Santa Cruz Church, but the wider neighborhood also includes the areas around Wat Kalayanamit, Kudi Khao Mosque, and the Chinese Kuan An Keng Shrine. The beginning of conservation and revitalization efforts in 2008 have made the neighborhood a cultural tourism destination.
