Ship Ahoy, Chef Aroy

Ship A-H-O-Y, Chef A-R-O-Y is the one of our CBT (Community-Based Tourism) projects. It is an example of how we share the benefits of responsible and sustainable tourism with the local people with whom we work.


You will transfer to the village of Ban Sai Noi at 09.00 and there you will experience true Thai culture with the local people as you create the delicious tastes and fragrances always to be found in Thai cooking. An experienced chef will show you, step-by-step, how to prepare 4-5 authentic Thai recipes. After you have mastered them here, you will be able to cook them again when you get home as we are careful to select only ingredients that can be easily found in your own country.


After taking your freshly prepared meal on board our beautifully converted traditional teak rice barge, we will take a 1 ½-hour cruise along country waterways back Ayutthaya city.


At the end of the cruise at around 14.30, disembark from the barge and set off for your next destination.
