As the Mekhala idles its way up to Ayuthaya, a wondrous array of folklore and river life unfolds along its banks. Imposing skyscrapers and classic monuments soon give way to a gentle rural pace. Houses on stills echo with the laughter of children playing at the water's edge; women bathe in traditional sarongs while the menfolk fish lazily from sampans.


Travelers from the west have often described Ayuthaya as the most beautiful city in the Orient. Indeed it must have been a truly breathtaking 'Venice of the East' with its 400 temples mingling across 60 kilometres of waterways, their chedis forming a magical forest in the sky.


Our Mekhala fleet consists of three boats with a total capacity of 19 cabins housing 38 passengers. Respectively they have four, six and nine immaculately appointed, fully air-conditioned double berth cabins with private bathrooms. In addition they feature :

  • Thai style designs with western comforts.
  • A deck for sunbathing.
  • A cozy, covered corner bar.
  • Audio entertainment, a library, a host of indoor games and a telephone.
