The house rafts on Sakae Krang River reflect the old link between water and the Uthai Thani people’s way of life. Water here is used to grow the sweetly fragrant pandanus and to raise fish in floating baskets, particularly gourami. The province is famed for this old way of farming fish, now a major occupation.
Tourists can take a boat tour to observe the lives of people living on rafts on Sakae Krang River by boarding at Lan Sakae Pier near Municipal 2 Fresh Market in Amphoe Mueang. Visitors may also board at Lan Suphannika in front of the provincial hall on Sri Uthai Raoad. The route passes Wat Tha Sung and ends at Tambon Tha Sung where Sakae Krang River and Chao Phraya River meet.
