Chokchai Museum On display are spectacular collections that hold over 60 years’ worth of memories.  It  is  a treasure  house  of  mementoes  belonging  to  the  man  who  has  kept  the  legendary  Farm  Chokchai  alive  for  over  half of a century.  His  success  is  the  result  of  hard  work  and  a  youthful  enthusiasm,  which  is  evident  when he says:

“ I’ve  dreamt  of  being  a  cowboy  since  I  was  a  young  boy. “  On  display  are  spectacular  collections  that  hold  over  60  years’  worth  of  memories.
