Attractions
Jesada Technik Museum is a private collection of classic cars and motorcycles mostly of European origin. There is something surreal about seeing this collection in the tropics surrounded by rice fields. It specializes in small cars, bubble cars as well as rare mini-size cars. The entry is free.

Old Nakhon Chaisri Market ceased to be a market 80 years ago. What is left is a ghost market which serves as a residential area made of wooden boardwalks and houses. Stepping into it is like stepping into the past of old houses and people living the way they used to live many years ago. You will have to use your imagination to picture a bustling, colourful floating market while you're walking through it but the experience is interesting to say the least. The area is owned by the Royal Family and there is talk of turning this into a tourist floating market similar to the Amphawa and Damnoen Saduak floating market.

Samrong Temple contains a Farmers Life Museum which displays tools used for farming and fishing in this area before the advent of motorized machinery. It is located on the right hand side in the building just before reaching the river. At the river front there is a place where you can buy bread and throw it in the river to feed the giant catfish. Watching these huge fish gather by the hundreds is an interesting sight.
