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

Nice place to learn about Holland or to eat Dutch snacks like bitterballen and kroket. It a little hidden and about 200 meter off the road next to the river.

It was great to learn about my Dutch ancestors and their activities in this area in 1604. Enjoyed typical Dutch food as well. Very nice staff. Don't bike here, take a taxi.
