TRAVEL DATE: 4-6 August 2017
DESTINATION: Ratchaburi Province
ACCOMMODATION: Eitanic Resort & Spa
Ratchaburi province is about 80 kilometers to the West of Bangkok. It is a popular day trip with foreigners to Damnoen Saduak Floating Market. However, there is a lot more to this province than this tourist trap. Although it is possible to do some of the places I visited as a day trip, it is advisable to stay overnight in the provincial capital. For this trip, I stayed two nights and three days. Although I saw a lot, I need to go back again as I missed a couple of highlights. Most notably the bat cave at Khao Chong Phran and Suan Pheung disitrict with its quirky attractions and boutique hotels. During the trip, I tweeted live on @RichardBarrow.
