The history of the village can be dated back more than two hundred years. Called the Soil-less Village or Muban Rai Phaendin, or Muban Rong Mai, it originally was a port by the shore. In those days, the steam vessels docked for the mangrove timber business delivering wood-for-burning between Chanthaburi and Bangkok. King Rama V the Great once visited Wat Bang Chan, which was considered as the community’s spiritual centre. That 200-year-ago event confirmed the existence of this community. There is a Chinese shrine at the opening of Khlong Bang Chan, as evidence of the majority of Thai Chinese people in the community who have developed a vigorous, trading village and settled down here until the present.

At present, the Soil-less Village is located at Tambon Bang Chan, Amphoe Khlung and still utilises boats as the main form of transportation while electricity was just available recently, but the water is still required to transfer from Khlung. Visitors can explore the local ways of life throughout this untouched village at ease and enjoy shopping for local products along the walkways; for example, dried-shrimp and shrimp paste.

Hint before visiting : Great ambience and all-day-long sea breeze.

Tip : Seafood souvenirs here are the best quality – not-to-be-missed.
