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 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 private air-conditioned cabins, spacious upper deck with ample room to relax and a sundeck were fitted in keeping with our simple and environmentally-friendly concept.
Nowadays the Thanatharee offers one, two and three day trips. Each is different but the same concept of bringing you into contact the ordinary Thai people in the course of their daily lives is constant throughout making sure that you will always live a Unique Cultural Experience.
