Three organized settlements—Anum, Krobom, and Aziadome—are contained inside Mpaem. 8 kilometers to the northwest of Suhyen is Kukurantumi. It provides a tranquil retreat from the rush of metropolitan life because of the surrounding lush foliage and rolling hills. The community in the hamlet, whose residents take pride in their customs and cultural heritage, is renowned for its warmth and friendliness.



The name Suhyen has an unusual backstory. History claims that there was a miscommunication between the Asantes and the people who are currently living in the Suhyen village. After that, they moved to the Eastern Region. They made the decision to acquire some water on the way so they could quench their throats. But the water had no name. Even though they were worn out, they had to keep going. Twi's word for "to cry" is su. Hyen, which means "to paddle" in Twi. So even if you sob, you would still need to paddle. In the village, farming is the main industry. Government employees do exist, although they frequently start their farming trip in the morning before heading off to work. In the village, there is just one government school. Suhyen's dedication to maintaining its deep cultural origins is among its noteworthy qualities. 



The enthusiastic and joyful celebration of traditional festivals and rites gives tourists the chance to fully immerse themselves in the culture. During these celebratory events, the air is filled with the rhythm of traditional drumming and dance, which spreads a contagious sense of happiness and community.Religion is also very important to them, and their spiritual practices frequently influence how they live their daily lives. 



Farming is the principal occupation and agriculture is the main source of income for the locals in Suhyen.

Small-scale businesses that produce handwoven fabrics and traditional crafts help to support the village's economy.For most residents of Suhyen, farming is their primary occupation and source of income.
