The Mekhala II has been renovated recently. She is now back on the water to take our guests on the Chao Phraya cruise from Bangkok to Ayutthaya. Other boats are in the process of renovation. They will be ready for service in two months. These are photos of the Mekhala I before she was released onto the river.
It is a Thai tradition to give offerings to the Guardian Goddess of Boats before releasing the boat to the river.
