Amazon Fishing Resort
Fishing is a fantastic activity whenever and wherever you get to enjoy it, but some fishing resorts are more appealing than others. It is fair to say the Amazon Fishing Resort has a name which grabs attention, and people check out what the resort has to offer by virtue of its name.
However, a good name wouldn’t be enough for anglers, and if the resort wasn’t up to a high standard, bad reviews would soon follow. This isn’t the case of the Amazon Fishing Resort, which is regarded as one of the leading fishing destinations in Bangkok.
You’ll find the best fishing opportunities here, with Mekong Giant Catfish, Redtail Catfish, Pacu, Barramundi and Alligator Gar all on offer. Come for sport or just to enjoy the scenery of this unspoiled environment – it’s an adventure waiting out there for any fisherman who has ever dreamed about catching that once-in-a-lifetime giant catfish they’ve heard so much about…
