This is Uthai Thani’s unique town that literally sits on the water with every single raft house hearing an official house registration. Back in the day when the river was the primary transportation route, people in Uthai Thani settled right on the water along the banks. Now, this settlement – comprising of more than 200 registered houses – has become Uthai Thani’s very unique way of life. On the main Sakrae Krang River, these locals perpetuate the riverine lifestyle: fishing and earning their lives through aqua-farming. Freshwater fish is are Uthai Thani’s delicacies, especially Pla Rat or Giant gourami that are plenty in the area.
