Chanthaburi Travel Guide
Thailand is home to many pretty provinces and interesting places to visit, and Chanthaburi is one of the best. It boasts an unusual topography with mountains on one side and flat plains on the other as well as coastal regions that have some of the best shores in the country. The aptly named Chanthaburi Mountain Range is home to the testing Soi Dao Nua Peak. After the climb to the summit, avid hikers may wish to take a cooling dip in the Chanthaburi River. Gemstones are the talk of the town here as the region is famous for its gemstone mining activities. Tasty tropical fruits are also popular and durian is the smelliest and most cultivated fruit to come out of the region.
