Thailand Swiss Village

Ban Jan SwissBan Jan Swiss








In 2006 I traveled to Thailand with the journalist Eva Pedrelli to film a documentary in Ban Jan Swiss (also called Barn Jan or Ban Chang), a village in the north of the country where, according to a research published by a Thai university, only because of an amazing social phenomena it had happened that almost every woman of the village was married to a Swiss. Indeed very Swiss names were on every door and stunning Villas all over the place. You can read more about it in these articles: I want to marry a Farang; Thailand’ Swiss Village. Unfortunately our documentary is not online anymore.

Our film was broadcast by Falò RSI in 2007.
