Travel Experience

Krachaeng community in Amphur Bangsai, Ayutthaya province is a quaint village community nearby the River Noi. At Tambol Krachaeng, residents in the community like to utilize their surroundings to good use. For instance, they use water hyacinths floating on the river as craft materials for hats, bags and baskets. They also raise hens and collect their eggs for food, as well as plant fruits such as bananas, mangoes, melons, and limes, all of which can be harvested year-round. Organic mushrooms are planted too, and the children will be fascinated by our oyster mushrooms. Moreover, children will be able to sample cricket-based dishes such as deep-fried crickets from our special cricket farms in the community, and there are many more interactive activities waiting for the youngsters at Krachaeng community.
