  • Damnoen Saduak Floating Market

    The vendors still paddle their boats up and down the waterways, selling and hawking their merchandise and wares while shielding from the strong rays of the sun under broad hats made from local bamboo and palm leaves. ‘Long tailed’ motorised boats are used as taxis and busses to transport goods, tourists, schoolchildren, workers, etcetera to their destinations. The boats meander and wend their way slowly though the log jam of traffic that make this one of the most interactive, interesting and memorable tourist attractions you will see. The markets start very early in the morning, and this is the best and most exuberant time to visit (the market closes around 11:00 A.M.). Arriving early allows you to see such things as sellers and food hawkers paddling past with people buying and eating food from the vendors, who cook and prepare hot food on their boats: this is true ‘commerce and food on the go’.

  • WatKhanon

  • WatKhao Chong Pran

    WatKhao Chong Pran is generally known as the ‘bat temple’ and is located about 10 kilometres past KhaoNgu and 17 from Ratchaburi.The temple is most famous for its spectacular sunset sight of millions of bats flying out of their caves in search of food. The bats live in a cave called Phra Non, located immediately behind the monastery and each night, from between 17:30 and 18:30, they come out in black waves of fluidly inky streams of hunger. Not only is the sunset spectacular but with the interplay of the bats and the setting sun you get a truly unique and memorable experience.

  • WatKhongkharam

    The murals of WatKhongkharam in AmphoePhotharam are its most famous attraction. The fine mural paintings about Lord Buddha's life in the main shrine hall are full of detail making them seem real. Apart from the restoration, accrediting the murals themselves is a difficult business as different sources date them differently. One learned source dates the murals from the Ayutthaya period (1350-1767): another source cites them as the early Bangkok period and yet another source cites them as King Rama III. Despite the ambiguity, they are very rare and worth studying. Located: The temple is located some 22 kilometers from Ratchaburi City at TambonKhlong Ta Khot, AmphoePhotharam.
