Description

Once upon a time... actually just over 50 years ago, the first governor of Bangkok Dr. Chamnan Yuvaboon was looking for a holiday home outside of Bangkok and discovered a bullet wood tree by the river banks that was about to topple over. To save this tree he bought the land and built their family's holiday home. The sacred bullet-wood tree still stands here today within the 70-acre property that is now known as Sampran Riverside. Initially, the business started cultivating roses to supply to the Bangkok flower markets which had come from a passion the governor's wife had developed during her visit to England. Since then, under the care of three generations, Sampran Riverside has grown gradually to a 70-acre riverside property that is more like a community rather than a ‘typical’ resort. Today Sampran Riverside is still a family-run property close to Bangkok, where visitors can experience authentic Thai way of life and learn about our local wisdom. Itinerary for your day: 09.30-12.00: "Living The Thai Culture" Art and Craft Workshops Experience traditional Thai culture and the livelihood of the locals through our art and craft workshops dotted around the village that are taught by the villagers.
