Went as part of a day tour, it wasn't as interesting as I thought it might be, although some parts were closed due to renovation, so if you're going probably pay to check if it's all open. Also we missed the Chinese room which is...More

Interesting temple, accessed by cable car. This is in Petchaburi, which is not a tourist hotspot. Built on a high ridge (mountain to the Thais). Very beautiful views. Many thieving monkeys, on the lookout for food. Will snatch stuff out of your hand. Including phones,...More

We've driven past so many times while heading for the coast and finally decided to make a stop. The complex is spread over 3 hilltops so can be taxing in the heat. There was some good information in English at the bottom of the hill...More

Khao Wang is probably the main landmark of Phetchabury. The hill dominates the skyline and it is no wonder that a king chose it as a place of residence. The palace complex consists of many buildings - stables, theater, pavillions and living quarters but the...More

Beautiful and amazing place in the whole.You can see very big Budha in the mountain (gold). Upea kuninkaan kesäpalatsi menneiltä ajoilta.Vuorella oli kultainen Budha,joka oli valtavan korkea.Kauniit maisemat ja historian havinaa.

If you're looking for a peaceful place to have a break from Bkk, this is a lovely option. I'd advise not to take the cable car but walk, you'll see more things. Better do it in the morning when it's not too hot. The whole...More
