This was amazing! It was a recommendation and we were so happy to go. We had a personal tour of the boats, complete with history, by the son of the original boat maker. Do not miss this museum. DO NOT.

The Thai Boat Museum is viewable by appointment, but I think that is just to let them know to listen for the bell to let you inside. They have many examples of Thai boats from throughout history, most of which were built by Mr. Patitoon...More
