boatcruise 2hrs Mae Ping River Cruise

Leave from the jetty at Wat Chai Mongkol and travel north out of the city.

And the boat chugs on to reach its destination point the “Thai Farmer’s House”. Agriculture remains Thailand’s largest source of income and here the visitor can discover the basic elements-rice, local herbs, fruits, fishing-all thriving in a chemical-free environment.

Sit down and relax over a fresh fruit or herb juice, together with a plate of newly prepared mixed fruit, which is included in the price of your two-hour excursion. But you may also wish to experience the signature dish of this part of the world, “Khao Soi” Here at “Thai Farmer’s house” the dish is prepared to a very special recipe which brings out the unique flavour of the mild, creamy curry soup. A well chosen selection of side dishes accompany the main ingredients of the meal. Cups of freshly brewed local coffee and other beverages are also available.
