Phetchaburi Province - Thailand Tourist Attractions :

          Phetchaburi Province, located 160 kilometers south of Bangkok, is a province in the central region of Thailand. It is situated on the west shore of the Gulf of Thailand and was once an important royal fort during the Ayutthaya period. Characterized by mountainous thick jungles and splendid beaches, this richly historic region provides visitors with a wealth of opportunities for sightseeing and relaxation.

          There are many prominent attractions in this region. The Phra Nakhon Khiri Historical Park extends over a hilly terrain and houses an old palace and a few historic temples. Tham Khao Luang is a cave on the north of the historical park and houses a beautiful Buddha image. The temple of Wat Tham Klaep at the foot of Khao Luang Hill, with its large hall and impressive carved doors is definitely worth a visit. Phetchaburi Province is also home to one of Thailand’s largest national parks, with its rich flora and fauna and splendid 18 level waterfalls, called Namtok Tho Thip is a major tourist attraction. Hat Cha-am is a beautiful strip of beach, which attracts a lot of national and international tourists.

          Phetchaburi Province makes an excellent destination for soft adventure such as trekking in the national park, rafting and bird watching. It is a memorable experience to go rafting down the Phetchaburi River which takes us through a lovely journey of lush forests and from amid hill tribe settlements.

          There are both air-conditioned and non-air conditioned buses regularly leaving the Southern Bus Terminal in Thonburi for Phetchaburi. There is no ordinary train service between Bangkok’s Hua Lamphong Railway Station and Phetchaburi, but there are three ordinary third class trains daily from Thonburi Station.
