What to see in Chanthaburi

The monument not to be missed in Chanthaburi is the Cathedral. It is the largest of its kind in Thailand, where Catholicism is a very minor religion. The river front (Chanthaburi Waterfront) before the bridge leading to the cathedral is also a very nice area with its typical colonial houses. It is also in this area that you will find another main attraction of Chanthaburi, the gem market. It's not really a tourist attraction but curious tourists love going through it. Apart from that the city has other temples and monuments, a city pillar shrine while only a few kilometers from the center you can find some nice beaches, uncrowded on weekdays, nature with waterfalls and other temples like Wat Khao Sukim 20 km from Chanthaburi.

Must-visits in Chanthaburi

Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception Chanthaburi

Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception

โรงแรมใกล้ มหาวิหารมารีปฏิสนธินิรมล
My 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
My 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.
Khanom Kai Pa Tai shop Chanthaburi

Khanom Kai Pa Tai shop

ขนมไข่ ป้าไต๊
My opinion :
Cookies similar to madeleines a little more airy of this small shop are famous throughout the region. This is really an address for gourmands who will be delighted to eat them just out of the oven.
Kung Krabaen Bay Royal Development Study Center Chanthaburi

Kung Krabaen Bay Royal Development Study Center

ศูนย์ศึกษาธรรมชาติป่าชายเลนอ่าวคุ้งกระเบน
My opinion :
This center located 30 km from Chanthaburi is composed of a large mangrove forest very pleasant to walk and discover by kayak (even if there are only a few canals with enough water). It borders the bay which also allows you to paddle in the open sea. It is really a beautiful place created by a royal project aiming to study and preserve the mangroves and their ecosystem.

Other visits suggestions in Chanthaburi

  • Wat Khao Sukim
    Temple on Khao Sukhim mountain between Chanthaburi and Khao Khichakhut about twenty kilometers from the city. There is a long staircase leading to the top. This is a fairly large complex, which to our knowledge, is not accessible by public transportation. Besides, you can also visit the orchard Suan Sadetyat from April to June.
