About Travel to Phetchaburi

Phetchaburi is a small town with around 27,000 permanent residents located 130 km to the south of Bangkok. Phetchaburi is a popular destination for Thai tourists. Foreign visitors, however, seldom come to Phetchaburi and very few of the town’s hotels, restaurants and bars cater specifically to the needs of foreign visitors. The facilities in the town, however, are good nonetheless and the local cuisine is diverse and generally good quality.

Beaches near Phetchaburi Town

Phetchaburi Town is not on the coast, which is probably why it is not as popular with foreign visitors as some of the other small towns on the Gulf of Thailand, such as Prachuap Khiri Khan. The closest good swimming beach, Chao Samran Beach, is located 18 km to the south.

There are lots of hotels and restaurants on Chao Samran Beach as well as shops and other amenities in the village behind the beach. Chao Samran Beach gets busy at the weekends and on public holidays with Thai tourists. At other times it is generally very quiet.

Phra Nakhon Khiri Palace

The major tourist attraction in Phetchaburi Town is the Phra Nakhon Khiri Palace, also known locally as simply Khao Wang. The Phra Nakhon Khiri Palace is a striking feature of Phetchaburi because of its location spanning the top of three hills in the town centre. The white buildings of the palace are visible from a long distance.

The Phra Nakhon Khiri Palace was completed in 1860 and used as a holiday home by King Rama IV. King Rama IV had a strong interest in European culture and science and this is reflected in the architecture of the buildings and the hill top observatory which forms part of the palace.

Phra Ram Ratchaniwet Palace

Phetchaburi also hosts a second royal residence, the Phra Ram Ratchaniwet Palace. This palace was never used. King Rama V who commissioned the palace died before it was completed in 1916. The palace has an unusual design thought to be based on the palace of Kaiser Wilhelm in Germany. The interiors of the palace have been well preserved and it’s an interesting building to visit.

Kaeng Krachan National Park

Kaeng Krachan National Park, an hour by road to the south west of Phetchaburi Town, is the largest national park in Thailand covering an area of nearly 3,000 square kilometres. The lake inside the park is also massive, covering 45 square kilometres. The park is a protected zone within a much larger mountain range that forms a natural border between Myanmar and Thailand. This part of Thailand has abundant wildlife, including one of the few remaining healthy populations of wild tigers in South East Asia. There are a wide variety of different ways to enjoy the park, as well as resorts located in and around the park.
