About Travel to Ratchaburi
Ratchaburi is a lesser visited part of Thailand located on the main Southern train line to the West of Bangkok, to the South of Kanchanaburi, and on the border with Myanmar. Ratchaburi has a long and interesting history and the area has hosted a succession of different civilisations over the past two to three thousand years.
The province’s most notable historical site is Wat Mahathat Worawihan in Ratchaburi Town. Wat Mahathat Worawihan was established at some point during the 10th or 11th Centuries by the people of the Khmer Empire of Cambodia and is one of the longest continuously functioning temples in Thailand. Wat Mahathat Worawihan has been extensively rebuilt over the past thousand years, however, the temple’s large Khmer style prangs remain the temple’s most distinctive feature.
By far the best known of Ratchaburi’s tourist attractions is the Damnoen Saduak Floating Market. When you visit Bangkok this the floating market that taxi drivers and travel agents will try to sell you tours to visit. Damnoen Saduak Floating Market is a tourist attraction rather than a genuine local market, and is probably the most successful project ever developed by the Tourist Authority of Thailand. Damnoen Saduak Floating Market featured in the 1974 James Bond film ‘The Man with the Golden Gun‘ which was highly influential in promoting an era of modern tourism in Thailand.
You don’t need to join a tour to visit Damnoen Saduak Floating Market you just need to turn up canal side during the day time and you can either stroll along the edge of the water, or pay to take a boat tour. Local canal side dwellers have recently become a lot more creative in terms of developing new attractions in their communities, such as arranging visits to some of the workshops located in wooden houses in other parts of the canal to give visitors an insight into local life canal side.
