Mekong catfish fishing

Thailand has rapidly become well-known as a top class fishing destination, thanks largely to its many, well-stocked boarded lakes. These lakes are packed with giant fish, including mekong catfish, siamese carp and gigantic arapaima, and have all the facilities necessary to make fishing a real pleasure. Our tour visits Bung Sam Lan, probably the best boarded lake in Thailand, where you can test your skills and stamina in water packed with world record fish. Oh, and don’t forget to spend sometime enjoying the vibrant and colourful city of Bangkok! Read more
