Thanatharee Rice Barge
  Our barge, named “Thanatharee” or Treasure on the Water, is 21.1 metres in length and 5.9 metres in width. It provides simple but comfortable air-conditioned multi-share accommodation with on-board shower and toilets. The maximum capacity is 12 passengers.

The spacious upper deck has ample room to relax, enjoy a refreshing drink, read, play games or just watch the world drifting gently by. There is also a sun deck for anyone wanting to work on their tans. Meals will be served on board, and everyone is welcome to help in the cooking and learn something about the art of Thai cooking. One may also accompany the cook to the local market and shops for the day’s ingredients.

Day 1 (-/L/D)
  Board our comfortable converted rice barge "Thanatharee". A cruise heads upriver to the unspoilt Maenam Noi, a small branch of the main Chao Phraya River, passing through rich agricultural areas dotted with small towns and villages where life moves at a slower and more gentle pace. With bicycles on board frequent stops are made along the way to explore the countryside and observe way of life and culture of the rural Thai people. There will be opportunities to see the traditional handicrafts still produced in these areas and meet with the local people, in a world far removed from the usual tourist haunts. Meals served on board. Coffee, tea and seasonal fruits are available at all times. Moore at a small village in the evening, and tie up for the night.

Day 2 (B/L/D)
  An opportunity to give food to the monks on their morning alms round and then cycling to explore the villages with opportunities to talk to school kids, old folks or farmers then rejoin the barge for total relaxation. Those who wish to learn the secret of Thai cuisine are always welcome to join our crew for meal preparation. Overnight on board at another small village.

Day 3 (B/-/-)
