Ratchaburi is a province in central Thailand to the west of Bangkok, bordering Myanmar (Burma). It’s known for the Damnoen Saduak floating market, where vendors sell food, handicrafts and souvenirs from traditional wooden boats afloat on khlongs (canals). The countryside features Bo Khloung’s hot springs and the nearby Khao Chon waterfall, with 9 terraced levels. Khao Ngu Stone Park is a site for rock climbing.
Area: 5,196 km²
Ratchaburi, 80km west of Bangkok, is a scenic provincial town with a wealth of natural and cultural attractions – the most popular being Damnoen Saduak Floating Market. Running along a network of canals just off the Mae Klong River, Damnoen Saduak is abuzz at early morning with wooden rowboats selling all kinds of fruits, vegetables and ready-to-eat snacks. Although a bit touristy when compared to nearby Amphawa and Tha Kha, it remains one of the must-visit attractions for any first-time visitors to Thailand. Besides Damnoen Saduak, a trip to Ratchaburi means going back to nature. Ridden with bat caves, mountain ranges, waterfalls and natural hot springs, the province offers a host of opportunities for exploration and sightseeing. Suan Pheung, a sleepy border town with a picturesque mountain scape and a handful of Mediterranean-inspired destination resorts, has sprung up on the tourist map as a place in which to get away from it all.
