We went around exploring and learning Thai Culture from Silk Processing; Thai Kitchen, Bamboo Dancing; Herbal Pavilion, and Thai Martial Arts... Then we watched 30 minutes Elephant demonstration before entering the auditorium for Thai Village Show... It's very live traditional Thai way of life, reflected through everyday activities, festivals and celebrations. It's a one stop to learn about Thai culture.... More

This review pertains to the organic farm at Sampran riverside, which does not have a separate listing. It is difficult to describe how wonderful this tropical organic multi-rai farm is on the opposite bank of the river to the hotel. Hundreds or thousands of species of tropical fruits, herbs, delicacies of every kind growing on this amazing place. Trip cost... More

The Rose Garden is a destination by itself. The complex compose of the Thai Village, a local market for people in the community, and a resort hotel make the visit a must. For the tourist, the cultural show at the Thai Village and the available of elephant ride are unique. For the Bangkok residence, the beautiful landscape, well manicured lawn... More

First things first - getting there… After browsing many different websites with conflicting directions we decided to jump on the BTS to Bang Wa and get a taxi. One vital piece of information that would have really helped us, and our confused taxi driver, is that the gardens have been renamed. Make sure you ask for Sampran Riverside http://www.sampranriverside.com/ They... More

We had a great lunch on the boat. Banana for the baby elephant. You could ride, we didnt. Was great to watch though. Afterwards we watched Muy thay which was funny to watch, more of a show than real boxing. A wedding with great dancing. stunning! Must see!!

Everything about this show is brilliant - well perhaps the xylophone band was a little bit off key! Held in an air conditioned auditorium.

Sampran Riverside was great to walk through, beautiful picturesque flora that seems to be a natural part off Thai experience. The Thai Village Cultural Show was fun and entertaining, the "players" even interacted with the audience near the end of the show, having those willing join them in one the Thai dances! Must see!
