About Travel to Saraburi
Saraburi is an ‘off the beaten track’ destination for foreign visitors, although it is a well known destination for Thai tourists particularly because of its close proximity to Bangkok and Ayutthaya. Saraburi town, which has around 60,000 permanent residents, is pleasant but unremarkable.
The town has a small range of hotels and an even smaller range of formal restaurants, none of which specifically cater for foreign visitors so you won’t find many menus written in English or Western style food. The town is well known for two products, Thai style pastries and its own style of rice wine, which are sold in small shops and stall in Saraburi.
The other thing that Saraburi is short on is public transport options which presents some difficulties for visitors as the main tourist attractions are located some distance from the town centre. To make the most of a visit to Saraburi you need to rent a car or a motorbike, or arrange for a car and driver.
Saraburi is located near three national parks: Khao Yai National Park, Namtok Chet Sao Noi National Park, and Namtok Samlan National Park. Located on the edge of Khao Yai National Park is Krok I Dok Waterfall, which is a 6 hour trek away from the road. Admission costs 250 THB and includes the services of a park ranger to guide you to the top of this magnificent waterfall, which involves wading through a number of thigh high rivers which makes this walk quite an adventure.
More popular is the Chet Sao Noi Waterfall within the Namtok Chet Sao Noi National Park which is only a short walk to reach. This multi-tiered waterfall in a forest has lower falls with large pools underneath which are good for swimming.
Close to Saraburi there are also several notable temples, the most famous of which are Wat Pa Sawangbun and Wat Phra Phutthabat. Wat Phra Phutthabat is a 17th Century temple with an impressive 7 storey mondop tower covering a depression in the ground revered as the footprint of the Lord Buddha. Wat Pa Sawangbun is a late 20th Century temple with an unusual golden chedi consisting of a large central tower surrounded by 499 smaller chedi towers. The temple also features a wide range of religious relics and unique statues.
