Chanthaburi Attractions:

King Tak Sin The Great's Monument located on Tha Luang Road in Amphoe Muang, opposite to the old governor office. Built in 1893 the building houses a bronze statue of the King.

Si Chan Road also known as gem road, an economic route of the province. Cut gems are put on sales here. On Firdays, Saturdsys, and Sundays, gem trading in Trok Krachang or Krachang Lane lends a very informal stmosphere.

Underwater Achaeological Museum
 is the place where antiques taken from the ancient junks lying in the seabed of the Gulf of Thailand are well stored. Most of the objects are earthenware and Sangaloke china. The office is situated in Khai Noen Wong, a military camp built in the reign of King Rama III as a barrier against violating enemies from Vietnam. At present, some traces of wall and bulwark are still left to be seen at the camp site which is on the route to Ban Tha Chalap, 8 kms. away from town to the west.

Laem Sing
 (cape), a likeness of a lion facing the sea, is about 31 kilometers from Chanthaburi town on Sukhumvit Highway, with a right turn at km. 347 On the Laem Sing hill are the remains of one of the two forts built during King Rama III's reign. The Laem Sing beach itself is not very appealing at present as it serves as the leading pier for fishing boats.

Khuk Khi Kai
Khuk Khi Kai is located just one kilometer before the pier. Built by the French in the year 112 of the Rattanakosin Bangkok Era, it was used by the builders as a retention center for Thai Nationals. A rectangular-shaped structure built with red bricks with two rows of ventilating slits and perforated roof, it is said that the roof was used as a chicken coop from which fowl waste was dropped on to the prisoners.  More
