Travel Guide

Phetchaburi in Central Thailand


As archaeological evidence suggests, Phetchaburi province has an ancient history with evidence that the area has been inhabited since the Dvaravati Period. Phetchaburi had key importance during the periods of the Sukhothai and Ayutthaya kingdoms and given its history, the province is awash with remains and artefacts from bygone ages. Many of these items have found their way into the area's museums which also display valuable works of art. One destination of particular interest to visitors is Cha-am, a resort town that began life as a royal resort and features an excellent beach. Given its close location to Bangkok, Cha-am is a favourite with weekend day-trippers from the capital. The province also houses Thailand's largest national park - Kaeng Krachan National Park.
