Thai Namthip Luxury Rice Barge
The approach to its new design honours traditional Thai architectural materials
Previously a traditional Thai rice barge transporting cargos of rice, sugar and sand up-river from Bangkok to remote riverside towns, this boat was later converted into a touring riverboat. Today, it has been re-modelled into a luxury private river cruising vessel.
The approach to its new design honours traditional Thai architectural materials. It features a handsome hull and deck of solid wood, a timber shingled and natural woven bamboo grass covered roof, timber panelling, woven rattan, and luxurious modern-day amenities on both the upper and lower decks.

Your Host & The Team
“Welcome onboard the luxury rice barge NAMTHIP. It is a unique floating home experience. Some 50 years back, this vessel transported rice from the North of Thailand to the central part of the country. Since then, it has seen various transformations from rice barge to passenger boat with 10 cabins but without an engine (back then it was towed by another boat), to a cruise ship with 8 cabins, to today’s luxury cruiser with just 2 air-conditioned cabins. I wish you a wonderful journey and an amazing voyage along the banks of the Chao Phraya River.”
