Since we had to wait 1,5 hours at the railway station for our train, we decided to take a rickshaw to Baan Hollanda. Half an hour is sufficient to see the very interesting exposition about the Dutch East Indies Company in their Asian trade policy....More

Not far from temple and historical sites in Aydhaya. Spare an hour for museum time, enjoy nice coffee with the river view. It worth your time especially in the hot summer day or even rainy season. Place is quiet and cosy, small but all inclusive.More
