Ratchaburi Province Travel Guide
Ratchaburi is a relatively small, central Thai province that borders in the west with Myanmar. The east of the province consists mainly of flat river plains, while the west of the province is more mountainous. The most well-know tourist spot in the province is the Damnoen Saduak floating market, located in the east.
While there are some interesting tourist attractions in the province, it’s not a tourist hotspot. For those with a love for temple hopping there are a few nice temples to visit, including Wat Phra Si Ratana Mahathat, situated on the banks of the Mae Klong river.
For lovers of the outdoors there is the Kaew Chan waterfall (a nine level waterfall) and the Bo Khlung hot stream. Both are situated just one kilometer apart and five kilometers from the district Suan Phung.
The province does not have the most accommodating of tourist infrastructures. Most hotels are Thai style motels aimed at Thai rather than Western tourists and there are few guest houses in comparison with other Thai provinces. Local buses run throughout the province and there are regular rail and bus links with Bangkok, which is just two hours away.
