Exploring Chachoengsao Province

Wat Samanratanaram in Chachoengsao

TRAVEL DATE: 5 September 2015
DESTINATION: Chachoengsao Province

At the weekend, I took the British and Canadian ambassadors and their families on a day trip to Chachoengsao. This province is to the East of Bangkok and is easily reached by train and bus. But, if you want to visit some of the more out of the way places like us, it is easier if you can arrange your own transport. Many taxi drivers will allow you to hire them for the day. I did a similar trip last year (see here) but I think the timing and variety of attractions on this trip was much better. Less exhausting at least. During the trip, I tweeted live on @RichardBarrow.

Day Trip to Chachoengsao

Giant Reclining Ganesha at Wat Samanratanaram

TRAVEL DATE: 3 August 2014
DESTINATION: Chachoengsao Province

On Sunday I took a group of friends on a day trip to Chachoengsao Province to the East of Bangkok. It was a full day as we arrived at our first destination at 9 a.m. for breakfast and we didn’t get home until sunset. Like most trips of this nature, it is difficult if not impossible to do with public transport. You either need your own car or rent a taxi for the day. During the trip, I tweeted live on @RichardBarrow. Click here to see those pictures and reports.
