Presentation Amphawa community live museum

Thai name : ห้องนิทรรศการชัยพัฒนานุรักษ์
My opinion:
This tiny museum is approximatly in the midle of Amphawa floating market on the left side when you have the mouth of the river behind you. This a place to visit for Boon Ruan and Buppa two exceptional women. The first braid Hinan Chinese hats called Hu-num-loui in Thai that most of the vendors on their boats wear in Amphawa. The second makes hats, baskets and mobile with coconut palm tree leaves and invites you to try to make your own. Their dexterity is fascinating and at a time when everything is made of synthetic materials, their work remind us of what nature can offer to those who with a little imagination and know-how try to seize it. Endearing grannies, they are the guarantors of traditions that they try to transmit to the younger generation.

This small living museum, without a sign, is located about thirty meters after Chanchala shop which sells refreshing house-made drinks. One of the drinks is made from Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn(s receipe. These two places are managed by the Amphawa Chaipattananurak Foundation which has for project to save and develop the old traditions of Amphawa.
