Presentation

The Amphawa Chaipattana Nurak Foundation is a royal project under the initiative of Princess Mahachakri Sirindhorn who commissioned it to use the land donated by a villager from Amphawa for the benefit of the community to perpetuate the wisdom of the Thai people and preserve the traditional lifestyles. The land along the Amphawa Floating Market include a coconut grove whose cultivation method with its hummocks and canals is taught and taken up throughout the region for a pesticide-free production. At the rear, you will find a small coconut production unit that I strongly recommend you to visit. Here, they also produce coconut cider that I have not tested yet and you can buy local products. There are also sometimes demonstrations of local music, dance or crafts on the stage at the back of the Pat Fat shop.

The foundation manages a series of shops on the market canal, including the Chanchala café and the small Amphawa community life museum a little further with its two amazing women who make bamboo hats or coconut palms hats, it also encourages local production and their sale to local tourists or foreigners coming to the week-end market so that here tourism development is far away to distort local life, as is often the case. Here it gives it a second life and strengthens traditions, ancestral know-how and crafts.
