Ratchaburi stands for the Land of the King. It is located to the west of Bangkok next to the border of Myanmar. Ratchaburi is an old city which is full of historical places, varied culture and life styles. It has Mae Klong River running through the city which makes the province a productive land for arable farming, growing crops and vegetables.
The province is divided into 9 districts which are Muang, Photharam, Damnoen Saduak, Pak Tho, Chom Bung, Bang Phae, Wat Phleng, Suan Phung and Ban Pong.
Ratchaburi has a long history dating back to the Dvarvati period when it was the Mon kingdom (Suvannabhumi kingdom). It was left in ruins leaving historical sites for us to visit and see such as Wat Khlong.
The main attractions are Rose Gardens and Damnoen Saduak Floating Market which show the life styles of the people and how the river becomes so important. There are many places you can visit such as the Handicraft factory, Wat Phra Si Ratana Mahathat, Khao Bin cave, Bo Khloung Hot Stream, Kaw Chan Waterfall and Pong Yub.
