Where to discover a traditional taste of Thailand

If you've ever visited Thailand and felt you spent too much time at the beach, or lazing around your hotel swimming pool, the Tourism Authority of Thailand has just launched a new tourism route aimed at showing off the uniqueness of Thai culture.

TAT is promoting a tourism route in Chanthaburi province under the concept "Joyful Chanthaburi". This new route is aimed at providing tourists with an experience of local "Thainess".

Chanthaburi is a province in the east of Thailand, largely off the well-beaten tourism track despite its crystal clear seas and beaches, waterfalls and unspoiled forests.

The Thai government have has, with a stunning lack of creativity, named Chanthaburi as "the Eastern Fruit Corridor of Thailand".



The route for tourists who want to taste exotic Thai fruit takes in the Patthawi community and Rak Khao Bai Sri community.

Both host fruit buffets at which tourists can enjoy eating unlimited fresh fruit off the trees.

Chanthaburi also has many kinds of seafood including crabs and fresh oysters.

TAT suggests seafood lovers get to the Bang Sa Kao community and Uncle Thom's Oyster Farm, where guests can enjoy fresh oysters with local sauce and experience the fishing community's traditions.

For those who are interested in the local way of life, then Samet Ngam community offers an insight into traditional reed farming and local handicrafts, including weaving a Chanthaboon mat.
