Banmai Chay Nam – Restaurant, Hotel and Museum all in one

By Andrea Ee

Ban Mai Chay Nam came up as a must visit restaurant when I was researching for places to visit in Khao Yai.

BanMaiChayNam_RiverRestaurant

Being a river side restaurant with a vintage museum in the restaurant itself, it easily made my shortlist.

The place really did not disappoint me at all. We met the owners and got a tour of the restaurant and their new hotel resort which we did not know about before our visit.

It is easy to spot this tiny Singaporean girl in a crowd. You may notice her unconventional unicorn like hair colour or maybe you just heard her squealing over some cute dog, cheap clothes or good food. Andrea loves having fun, being different and taking on new adventures which she documents on Instagram @vexdrea. When she is not working, she is probably at church, shopping at some thrift store or exploring some other country.
