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.
