Saraburi overview

Saraburi Travel Guide
The city of Saraburi seems rather too nice to have afforded the name of ‘swamp city’, but who are we to argue? Established around 1549, ‘Saraburi’ literally translates to mean ‘swamp town’ as it is located near the murky waters of Bueng Nong Ngong. Despite this less than desirable setting, however, Saraburi was apparently fit for a king as it is home to one of the only royal temples in the country. Wat Phra Buddhabat is around 28kms from downtown Saraburi and very grand in its appearance. Another point of note about this city is that it is one of the best places to see Thailand’s remarkable crop of sunflowers during the winter from November to February.
