Visiting Phra Nakhon Khiri in Phetchaburi

Phra Nakhon Khiri in Phetchaburi, Thailand (2007)

In 2007 I was traveling from Bangkok to Hua Hin and when you are traveling by car you will be passing Phetchaburi. And almost right along the highway you will see a hill with a temple, palace and Chedi's over 3 hill peaks. This is Phra Nakhon Khiri, a historical park in Phetchaburi on a hill overlooking the city. The name Phra Nakhon Khiri means 'holy city hill', but locals call it Khao Wang, meaning 'hill with palace'. The whole complex was built as a summer palace by King Mongkut, with construction finished in 1860. Photos were taken in 2007.

One night in Bangkok and the world is your oyster

The journey of Traveling 2 Thailand did begin with One Night in Bangkok in 1985 and since 2009 it became a personal non-commercial travel blog as inspiration for traveling & motorbike riding in Thailand. Made just for the sheer love of traveling and sharing experience about traveling in South-East Asia. To travel beyond the beaten track & highlights. Enjoy!
