Phetchaburi overview

Phetchaburi Travel Guide
If you’re a history head, you can bore your companions to death in Phetchaburi, Thailand. The city is the capital of the province of the same name and sits around 75 miles southwest of bustling Bangkok. Phetchaburi is thought to be one of the country’s oldest settlements and there is a significant number of architectural gems and temples here. One of the main attractions is Khao Wang, a former royal palace that sits on top of the mountain overlooking the city. Animal rights activists might not appreciate the former animal sacrifice sites here, but there are plenty of live creatures still milling about to make you feel less melancholy. The caves are filled with bats and monkeys jump around the entrances that are reassuringly fat thanks to the amount of tourists around to pinch food from.
