Ship Ahoy, Chef Aroy


A cooking experience with local people and then a rice barge cruise and enjoy the lunch that you have prepared yourself.

Ayutthaya is steeped in centuries of artistic and cultural heritage, preserving its precious architectural and cultural treasures for later generations. The art of Thai cooking is the one of these treasures. Thai cuisine has always stressed a delicate balance between the four different tastes: sour, salty, sweet and last but not least, spicy hot. Thai food is very versatile and adaptable to suit almost any palate.


Part 1Traditional Thai Cooking Class

Ship A-H-O-Y, Chef A-R-O-Y is the one of our CBT (Community-Based Tourism) projects. It is one of the ways in which we can share the benefits of responsible and sustainable tourism with the local people, taking into account their natural resources, cultural heritage and local economies.

The tour starts at 09.00 and you will experience true Thai culture with the local people through the art of creating the delicious tastes and fragrances found in Thai cooking. An experienced chef will show you, step-by-step, the secrets behind 4-5 authentic Thai recipes. After which, you’ll be able to cook them again when you get home as we are careful to select only ingredients that can be readily found in your own country.

Part 2Traditional Teak Rice Barge Cruise

After taking your freshly prepared meal on board our beautifully converted traditional teak rice barge, we will take a 1.5-hour cruise along rural waterways from the village back into Ayutthaya city, taking in beautiful scenery and then the majestic city as you enjoy your lunch along the way.

At the end of the programme at around 14.30, disembark from the barge and set off for your next destination with a satisfied appetite and a smile on your face. If you take the car option, the tour will finish around 12.00.
