Thai Cooking Class

Sampran Riverside provides cooking classes on a riverside floating pier ‘Ruen Pae’ or on a riverside terrace. The main focus of the cooking classes is to educate participants on the balance of tastes and health benefits of traditional Thai food. Popular Thai dishes are selected for each class and participants are shown how to prepare them using mostly organic ingredients and traditional cooking methods by an experienced chef.

For a back to basics approach to traditional Thai cooking, a visit to the Organic Farm to pick your own fresh ingredients can be made before you start cooking.

Patom Organic Farm tour

Our 15 acre organic farm is located across the river. We started organic farming 10 years ago growing local vegetables, fruits and rice. The farm is now certified organic according to IFOAM, EU and COD standards.

The farm is looked after by our farmer, Khun Pasin and he grows local vegetables and herbs for Thai cooking such as morning glory, Chinese leaves, spinach, basil, eggplants, chilies, lemongrass, kaffir lime and many more. We grow local fragrant organic rice such as Hom Patum and Hom Nakornchaisri as well as a variety of salads and herbs and tend to the fruit orchards of banana, guava, lime, fragrant coconut and pomelo.


On the organic farm tour, you learn about organic farming and experience the livelihood of a Thai farmer. You could also collect vegetables, herbs, fruits and eggs for a cooking class or a farm lunch. You could try rice planting the traditional way or harvesting if it happens to be the season. After all the hard work on the farm, you could bring back herbs and fruits to our Patom Organic Spa for a soothing spa treatment using your freshly picked organic ingredients.

Local Farm Tour

For the last 6 years, Sampran Riverside has been working with local farmers, universities, government agencies and local authorities to bring back organic agriculture to our Sampran district. The ‘Sampran Model’ project is funded by Thai Health Promotion Foundation and Thailand Research Fund. As of now, there are approximately 80 organic farmers in the project. Sampran Riverside buys rice, vegetables, fruits and herbs directly from the Sampran Model organic farmers for our kitchen and spa.

Visit the local farm which is about 30 minutes away from Sampran Riverside, learn about organic farming and enjoy the workshops provided by the farmer.

Sookjai Weekend Farmer’s Market

In November 2010, Sampran Riverside further engaged with the local community by opening a weekend farmer’s market called ‘Talad Sookjai’ for those who practice organic farming to come and sell their produces and delicacies. Regular tests are carried out every 2 weeks to ensure toxic chemicals are not used, and monthly workshops at the market pavilion related to organic farming and holistic health are provided to visitors. The community market has its own direct entrance and is open every Saturday and Sunday from 09.00hrs to 16.00hrs.

River Cruise

Private river cruises can be arranged down the scenic Ta Chine River with pick up from one of the hotel building piers to Wat Rai Khing or Donwai Riverside Market. Wat Rai Khing takes about 45 minutes ride and is a temple where Buddhists frequently pay visit to pay homage to a sacred Buddha image. The temple is also popular among the Thais for its natural fish sanctuary where one can feed thousands of giant catfishes. Don Wai Market is about an hour away and remains largely undiscovered by foreign tourists but is very popular amongst the Thais for its local delicacies and fresh produces. The journey along the river is a very peaceful one with untouched greenery and riverside life on both sides. A classic wooden boat is available for the river cruise tour with capacity from 2 to 100 people.
