Mahasawat Agro Tour
Mahasawat is located about 50 kms from Bangkok in the province of Nakhon Pathom, where agricultural and horticultural farm produce are grown organically without the use of any pesticide or insecticide.
You can taste the difference in the fruit and vegetables grown here.
Nakorn Pathom province is criss-crossed by natural waterways, canals and irrigation ditches and Mahasawat is situated on one of these canals. It is an area which highlights agro tourism including orchid farms, lotus fields and organic orchards.
From the pier beside the Suwannaram Temple, six-seater boats will take you to explore places along the canal. As you cruise along the canal you?€?ll get a unique perspective of a different lifestyle including the huge fishing nets suspended above the water.
You?€?ll love the orchid farm, where thousands of orchids are grown for the export market. And the orchards where a wide variety of fruit are grown. You can take a ride through an orchard on a Thai-style tractor and afterwards enjoy a tasting of whatever seasonal fruit is available.
You can taste the local specialty called Khao-Tung Hna-Tung or Crusty Rice with Shrimp Dip produced in their unique solar cell oven and take a punt on a five-acre pond which harvests 3000 lotus flowers per day.
