Traveling in Phetchaburi province in Central Thailand
|Temples in Phetchaburi, Thailand|
Last year I did make a posting about counting all the provinces I had been in Thailand. And I saw I have been to (stayed in) 48 provinces out of the 76. So in the coming months I will travel via my postings from the most southern province I have been to the most northern province, with some photos and information about each province. This is part 9 of the 47 (out of the 77) provinces where I have at least stayed overnight once. Phetchaburi province is the southern provinces of Central Thailand and you could actually wonder if you should not consider it to be part of South Thailand. Phetchaburi province borders on the west-side with Myanmar and on the east-side with the Gulf of Thailand. And Phetchaburi province is mostly know for the beach resort town Cha-am and Kaeng Krachan National Park. On the south Phetchaburi province is bordered by Prachuap Khiri Khan province and in the north by Ratchaburi province and Samut Songkram province. The capital town is of course Phetchaburi town. Phetchaburi province can be reached by bus and train.
Personally I know Phetchaburi province mostly from traveling thru to Hua Hin, visiting some places along the way and I did stay once overnight in Cha-am. But Phetchaburi province is also home to small mountain, ancient temples and of course Kaeng Krachan National Park. So actually Phetchaburi province is worth visiting much more, what I will do hopefully in the near future.
