Discover the neighborhoods of Phetchaburi


Just a few hours outside of Bangkok, Phetchaburi has long been a favorite destination for most Thailand visitors. This is one of the oldest provinces in the country, and therefore is home to a great deal of ancient Thai history, complete with impressive structures and historical museums.

There are buses that depart daily from Bangkok and arrive in Phetchaburi in around two hours, but the more adventurous and time-relaxed traveler would have more fun on the train which leaves Bangkok’s Hua Lamphong station and arrives at Phetchaburi Railway Station about four hours later.

Phra Nakhon Kriri Historical Park, also known as Khao Wang, is a popular destination among most visitors to Phetchaburi. The park is located atop a hill, overlooking the city and grouping together such important and impressive structures as the royal temple and the impressive Royal Palace.

Of course, vacations aren’t just about museums and old palaces, and with this city’s perfect location near some of Thailand’s most beautiful coastlines, a visit to one of the beaches, like Chao Samran, is almost a requirement. Hotels near the beach are a great option for travelers that are interested in planning more water activities than temple-hopping.

There’s a lot more to see and do in Phetchaburi, and the best way to discover what else this city has to offer in terms of attractions, landmarks, and hotels is by exploring the interactive map on this page.
