There is no better way to witness the traditional way of life of Thai people than by cruising along the legendary Chao Phraya River (River of Kings). During this two-day cruise on the Mekhala, you will travel back in time as you view the rich history of Thailand.

The Mekhala is a collection of three elegantly restored, beautifully crafted rice barges. The barges provide the setting for overnight journeys between Bangkok and Ayutthaya retracing the paths of former royal processions. Your journey on the Mekhala starts in Bangkok and ends in Ayutthaya / Bang Pa-in Summer Palace, or vice versa.

There are only six rooms, promising you an unparalleled sense of intimacy and personalization as you cruise the river of the Kings. Optional tours such as a guided visit to the Summer Palace and to the Ancient City of Ayutthaya, as well as transfer options, are available.

Our prices include a 1-night / 2-day cruise onboard the Mekhala with a delicious Thai dinner, breakfast and snacks, water, tea and coffee with meals, accommodation based on sharing a double cabin with air-conditioning and private bathroom and the service of a multi-language, well experienced crew. The Mekhala Rice Barges are also available for charter for both, day / dinner cruises on the Chao Phraya River and overnight cruises.

Accommodation: This trip uses 4 to 5 star accommodation. Please refer to the itinerary section for more details about the accommodation selected for this trip.
