A rice farmer in Loei, Thailand turned pineapple farmer has not had regrets over his "career switch" eight years ago.
He changed his produce due to the drought and the declining price of rice.
The man said he earns a better income from growing a specific breed of pineapples which is also in high demand.
He has grown almost 60,000 pineapple plants and supplies the fruit to factories.
