What to see and do?
Visitor can enjoy Thai desserts, seafood, and tropical fruits at the market. Some dishes are familiar.
Some are alien-looking. However, if you expect to find Pineapple Fried Rice sold on boats as seen in the Disney short, you might be disappointed. However, you may order it at a restaurant.
Exploring the surrounding canals and the Mae Khlong river by longtail boat is recommended. Visitors can see local lifestyle where most people do fruit plantation and make Thai desserts. Visiting museums such as King Rama II Memorial Park where fascinating Thai artifacts are housed is also interesting. The admission fee for adults is only 30 baht (1 USD) and 10 baht for children.
The Thais like to visit temples. A 9-temple tour is also available, but if you don’t have much time, Wat Chulamanee is worth visiting. It is believed that this temple was built in Ayutthaya period some
hundreds of years ago.
Inexpensive homestays run by locals are easily found. Staying with locals and taking an evening excursion by boat along a canal to watch fireflies is definitely a fantastic experience.
