          Abstract

          The purpose of this article is to explain the factors that enable Kao Yee Sarn, a small local community in Samut Songkram Province, maintain its identity as a ‘Thai community’ despite the strong influences of global change. The study uses the concept of EBS for the investigation of the interactions among places, user groups, socio-behavioral-cultural phenomena and time. Literature review, direct observation and interviews were conducted. It was found that the balance of the dynamic interaction among environment, social economic culture and residences’ behaviors is the key factor that enables Kao Yee Sarn to maintain its identity.
