The idea of the Thanatharee was originated in 1999 by two great minds who were genuinely interested in bringing foreign visitors into closer contact with the local Thai people. They took a rice barge, which was originally built in the late 40’s and for many years carried its cargoes down the Chao Phraya River from the rice-growing plains of Central Thailand to Bangkok, and converted it into a comfortable and delightful way of bringing enthusiastic minds into the river-studded rural heartland of Thailand. Live-aboard facilities such as a bedroom, bathrooms, and kitchen were fitted in keeping with our simple and environmentally-friendly concept.
