About Train Travel to Ratchaburi
Ratchaburi has a fairly wide range of interesting places to visit, and is very popular with Thai visitors, particularly at the weekends. Ratchaburi is close enough to Bangkok for city residents to come to the town on day trips.
Ratchaburi also receives huge numbers of foreign visitors, although nearly all of those foreign visitors come to see the two main floating markets in Ratchaburi: Damnoen Saduak Floating Market and Amphawa Floating Market. Damnoen Saduak Floating Market and Amphawa Floating Market are both worth visiting, however, they are very toutist oriented and high prices are charged for everything including boat tours, food and drink. For a cheaper and more low key experience of a floating market market in Ratchaburi we recommend trying Tha Kha Floating Market.

- Wat Mahathat Worawihan: Believed to have been founded at some point during the 10th or 11th Century, Wat Mahathat Worawihan is one of the oldest functioning temples in Thailand.

- Wat Khao Chong Phran: We recommend completing the nearly 30 km journey by road to the north of Ratchaburi Railway Station at least 30 minutes before sunset to witness large numbers of bats (estimated to be in the millions) fly out from a nearby cave to hunt insects.
- Wat Nong Hoi Park: 14 km by road to the north of Ratchaburi Railway Station, you can reach Hong Noi without having to walk up any steps and enoy impressive hill top views across the local countryside.
- Muang Khu Bua Ancient Ruin: Ratchaburi was the location of an important settlement that existed from the 6th to 11th centuries. Muang Khu Bua Ancient Ruin is the main remnant of that ancient city. The large brick base of what was once a massive chedi tower is near to the Muang Khu Bua market, which features traditional Thai products and vendors dressed in costume to resemble to the inhabitants of the old city.
