About Thanatharee Cruise - The Unique Cultural Experience - Day Tours
The Unique Cultural Experience. Our cruise, the Thanatharee, is a rice barge originally built in the late 40's, converted into a comfortable and unique way of bringing enthusiastic minds into the rural heartland of the Kingdom of Siam. For 15 years now, Thanatharee -"Treasure on the Water"- has been bringing travelers in close contact with the local cultures and offering participants a great opportunity to learn about the day-to-day life of the communities that dot the landscape; meeting the farmers; the artisans, the local people and school children and enjoying cultural exchange and social interaction. The Thanatharee provides 6 comfortable private air-conditioned cabins, each with 2-berths. Toilet facilities include two showers, two toilets and additional washbasins. The spacious upper deck has ample room to relax, enjoy a refreshing drink, read, play games or just watch the world drift gently by. There is also a sundeck for anyone wanting to work on their tans. Meals will be taken on board and everyone is welcome to give a helping hand in their preparation and so learn something of the art of Thai cuisine. One can also accompany the cook to the local market to buy the day's ingredients. The Thanatharee offers 1, 2 and 3-days programs, as well as private trips. Each is different but the same concept of bringing you into contact the ordinary Thai people in the course of their daily lives is constant throughout.

The very friendly crew on this boat prepared a tasty and filling Thai lunch as we cruised the river. We enjoyed a two-hour cruise after a full morning of seeing temples and palaces, and this couldn’t have been more relaxing. After the meal, we were provided with cushioned lounges to rest on the deck and watch the homes, temples and restaurants go by.

Perfect excursion for the family! Visiting Ayutthaya by bike is a great choice and although it was a hot day the visit was very interesting. Food on board was delicious and the facilities of the boat were very nice too. Quite recommend for families with teenagers and kids (I would say 8+ years)

After few days in thailand, me and my workmates decided to book Thanatharee in our day to Ayutthaya. The experience was amazing! Not only visit the archeological site from another point of view, but also had a new experience. The boat is beatiful, the cabins are clean and fully functional, the food on board just delicious and the activities so great. We enjoyed so much our day! Absolutelly recommended!

We joined the day tour and it was a perfect and relaxing experience. From the pick up in Bangkok and until the last minute both guide and the crew of the boat really took care of us. Excellent Thai food onboard and a perfect way of seeing Ayutthaya temple from the deck. They offer overnight trips as well and cabins look really nice! Will try next time!

This is a first rate tour, every aspect, every portion was either interesting, informative, educational or relaxing. Both my wife and I had been previously, some 15 and 20 years agoand this time accompanied by our two children (10 & 15) Pick up from the hotel by mini-bus at 6.30am (on time) Short drive to the collection point (a shopping mall by the river) Transferred to a coach for the 90-120 minute drive to the first attraction. On going commentary provided by our veteran tour guide - Victor. Again, informative and amusing. There were four attractions. The order of these attractions can vary according to the traffic conditions. The first was the ancient temple site. The last was the Summer Palace. Two very different temples in between. Oppotunity to purchase coffee, water and snacks and to use the bathroom at each stop. Finally, a 30 minute drive to the cruise boat for a very relaxing lunch and senic boat trip back to Bangkok. Arrived at 3.30pm Transfer to mini bus and we were back at our hotel by 5.00pm. An excellent tour enjoyed by the whole family.
