Tambon Mai Tra Yuan Community  
 Known as:        
 Description:   Tombon Mai Tra Yuan community is at Tombon Mai Tra, Amphur Bang Sai, Phra Nakorn Sri Ayutthaya province. It is located near the Chao Praya river, opposite Bang Sai Royal Folk Arts and Crafts.
Around 150 years ago in the past, Rattanakosin period, in this Tombon, there were Yuan people who migrated from Samsen district, Bangkok and settled down here until the community was formed. Most of the villagers were Christian Catholic so the church was built in the village.
Nowadays, Yuan people have settled down in other parts in Ayutthaya such as Baan Pan, Chao Ched and Sena Baan Nah Khok (Amphur Phuk Hai). However, the most populated area is at Khao Yai, Bang Sai. Yuan language is also engaged in religious ceremonies. Those villagers call the place they live “Khao Yuan”.

Tombon Mai Tra Subdistrict Administrative Organization has built a raft in the Chao Praya river from Trai Raj Wittaya school so it can be a place for people selling their products and foods and can boost the villagers’ income. There are many Vietnamese or Yuan food for you to try for example Bua Loi Yuan (Yuan style dessert), Khao Krieb Pak Moh Yuan (Yuan style snack), Khao Tom Mad Yuan (Yuan style steamed rice) and Kuay Tiew Yuan (Yuan style noodle). For those who love Thai dishes, there are lots to try too. Moreover various local herbs, vegetables and fruits are widely sold. The home stay style accommodations are provided for tourists.

If tourists visit here, they can observe the refreshing and beautiful river view. On the opposite side, you can see Bang Sai Royal Folk Arts and Crafts and the villager’s lifestyle who may be fishing.
There are small and big boats riding along the river to be observed. Tourists can also visit the places nearby for example Wat Tha Sung temple where there are Mae Kai bats, the fishermen community, carved walls of some houses and observe Wat Christ Prajak temple. If you are not fully full with the food at Mai Tra raft, there are nice restaurants nearby such as Rotdee restaurant and the giant river prawns are waiting for you.
