Though he already had an offer for the land he owned in the village of Na Bin La, in Trang province, a sweet old man named Thong Kongkaew, 91, decided to donate it instead to build a road that will save local residents lots of time when traveling between his village and the next one, called Na Yong Tai.

 

The man, a farmer, owns 16 rai of land and is nicknamed Great Grandpa Thong by locals.

 

Now, instead of traveling all the way around Great Grandpa Thong’s land, they can drive through it on a public road. The man made the kind donation of an 8-meter-wide strip that is 350-meters-long, to honor his deceased wife.
