This is part 9 of the 48 (out of the 77) of all the provinces in Thailand I have stayed at least 1 night. 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. If you are interested to visit Phetchaburi or any other place in Thailand, please contact me by email at The Little Elephant Traveling in Thailand.
