You never heard of Ratchaburi I bet. But then again I'm willing to wager that you certainly have heard of the world famous Thai Floating Market, and even the Rose Garden. Both are famous and both are popular with visitors from all over the globe. Ratchaburi is about two hours from Bangkok by road. In your head though it may as well be another world.

Perched on the banks of the Mekong the province is truly like a visit to another country after the hustle and flow of bangkok. Sure the big attractions are the floating market and Rose Garden is nearby, but there is much more on tap as well. High on any list are some of Ratchaburi's magnificent temples (Wats) and museums, and there are hotels and places to stay that are not only good vlue but downright comfortable. We would, by the by, suggest that if you want to visit the floating market that you go the day before. The best time to get the real "look and feel" of the whole place is well before 9AM when most busses begin to arrive from the big smoke. Get there early enough, like before 8AM rent a boat and take to the waterways yourself. Ah a festival of color, sounds and culture.

Ratchaburi is a very old city going back to the ancient era. It was a town of the Suwannaphum Kingdom which was very prosperous.


Ratchaburi occupies an area of 5,196 square kilometers and is located 101 kilometers from Bangkok along Phetchakasem High way or 80 kilometers along the Highway No.35 (the Thon Buri-Pak Tho Highway).
Ratchaburi is administratively divided into nine Amphoes: Muang, Photharam, Damnoen Saduak, pak Tho, Chom Bung, Bang Phae, Wat Phleng, Suan Phung, and Ban Pong.

King Rama V commanded a palace built on this hill but he made only one visit in the year 1877.Later in the seventh reign, King Rama VII commanded to give the palace as Thorani Song land (land belonging to a monastery). Those who had merit making intentions contributed to the repair and modification of buildings for the Main Shrine Hall and monk's living quarters. Later on it was promoted to be a monastery called "Wat Khao Wang"
