Bangkok: Mahasawat Canal Day Trip

Your first stop on this adventure in rural Thailand is an orchid farm, where thousands of orchids are raised for the export market. If you’d like to buy some orchids, you’ll find better prices here than in the city!

Many orchards specialize in organic fruit and you’ll also see fields where organic rice is grown. Take a ride through an orchard on a Thai-style tractor and afterwards enjoy a tasting of whatever fruit is in season. Taste a special dish called Khao Tang Na Tang (crispy rice with shrimp dip). Produced in the restaurant’s unique solar cell oven, watch it being made and sample this traditional snack. Visit Wat Sam Phran, a Buddhist temple in Amphoe Sam Phran that was officially registered in 1985. Explore Wat Samphran’s life-sized dragon and temple grounds. Next, stop is the Wat Suwannaram pier, where you’ll board a boat for a trip on Mahasawat Canal. The community organizes agro-tourism excursions by long-tailed boats that take visitors to a lotus field, orchid farm, and fruit orchards. From the pier beside the Suwannaram Temple, a 6-seater boat will take you on a ride along the canal. These boats are safe, and are equipped with life jackets, as well as sunshades for your comfort. As you cruise along the canal you’ll see huge fishing nets suspended above the water and get a unique perspective of the local lifestyle.

We had a really nice Guide who gave us a lot of information and she teached us a lot about the Thai culture. We wanted to see the canals, so she called a boat for us and gave us the information about the prices and we could decide if it is worth the money. We also had a lot of Thai food in local markets, super cheap and very good. Thank you, would do this Tour again!!
