Kamphaeng Phet overview

Kamphaeng Phet Travel Guide
Located just north of Bangkok is Kamphaeng Phet and visitors to this city may wish to visit during the annual Banana Festival when the local people thank the gods for a successful banana harvest. If bananas are not your thing then fear not as there are many other reasons to visit Kamphaeng Phet and the Ping River is a pleasant yet murky one! Despite its muddy waters, the Ping offers boat rides and a chance to see the region from a unique perspective. Mountains covered in a blanket of forest and trees make up the majority of the scenery in the area and there are a few decent museums including the provincial and national museums which both house artefacts pertaining to the area’s history.
