Leave from the jetty at Wat Chai Mongkol and travel north out of the city. The river soon shows its true rural identity as city bridges pass from view and are replaced by scenes of wide water stretching from green tree-lined bank to bank. Kids play, daring each other to swing through an old motor tyre and plunge into the cool river below.Smiles,Yells,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 vistor can discover the basic elements-rice local herbs, fruits,fishing-all thriving in a chemical-free environment.

Enjoyable cruise down the river with English speaking guide. Stopover at The Farmer House where we were given a plate of beautiful fresh fruit and refreshing drink.
