About This Boat

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

Offering a Chao Phraya river cruise between Bangkok and Ayutthaya, the Mekhala is a collection of three elegantly restored, beautifully crafted rice barges. The barges provide the setting for overnight journeys – 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 6 cabins, promising you an unparalleled sense of intimacy and personalization as you cruise the river of the Kings. The cabins come wiith air-conditioning and private bathroom.

The Mekhala Rice Barges are available for charter for both, day / dinner cruises on the Chao Phraya River and overnight cruises. Please inquire for more info.
