Ban Rim Klong Homestay Community
Ban Rim Klong Homestay Community
Explore this traditional community next to Bang Pee Lok canal and go back to basics as you immerse yourself in the simple yet rewarding orchard life. The community is hidden under the shade of looming coconut trees next to the well-known Bang Pee Lok canal that connects to Amphawa canal, a branch of the Mae Klong river. Experience the way of life of this waterside community nestled among the lush mangrove plants and vast coconut orchard. Here, you’ll become immersed in the tales of the coconut tree farmers; get to try some delicious meals cooked with locally-sourced ingredients, and let your creativity unfold as you partake in a coconut shell tie-dye activity. Kick back next to the water as you watch the sun go down in the evening.
