Must-visits in Chanthaburi

Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception Chanthaburi

Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception

โรงแรมใกล้ มหาวิหารมารีปฏิสนธินิรมล
Our opinion :
The largest Catholic church in Thailand and probably the most beautiful. Built in the early 20th century in Gothic style, it has become the symbol of the city of Chanthaburi.
Chanthaboon Waterfront Chanthaburi

Chanthaboon Waterfront

ชุมชนริมน้ำจันทบูร
Our opinion :
and the old town of Chanthaboon, the former name of Chanthaburi. With its wooden houses, the street that runs along the river at the bottom of Wat Bot and goes to the bridge leading to the Cathedral is certainly the most beautiful area of the city.
