Traveling in Prachinburi province in Central 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 15 of the 47 (out of the 77) provinces where I have at least stayed overnight once. Prachinburi province is in between Central Thailand and North-East Thailand, so most times it is categorised as Central Thailand. And most people will only travel thru it going to Khorat or staying at the eastern part of Khao Yai National Park or going to Thap Lan National Park. The capital town is of course Prachinburi, although Kabinburi is a bussier place. For me personally I most times did drive thru Prachinburi to Khorat, taking the route 304. But we even stayed once at Wang Nam Keaw and visited Thap Lan.
