What to see in Phetchaburi

Thanks to its historical past, Phetchaburi has much more to offer compared to Cha Am, Hua Hin and Pranburi its nearest neighbors. There many places of interest. There are many ancient temples with heterogeneous architecture and periods (including Ayutthaya and Sukhothai periods). Petchaburi's best-known monuments are undoubtedly the Phra Nakorn Khiri and the Tham Khao Luang Cave temple. Kaeng Krachan National Park will delight lovers of nature. Those looking to enjoy the beach will go to or Had Chao Samran or Puek Tian.
I also listed at the end of the page some good tours, excursions and activities that you can do in Phetchaburi or from Phetchaburi. Click here to see them.

Tham Khao Luang Cave

My opinion :
This cave in the mountain was turned into a temple and is particularly pleasant to visit when it's hot outside. It is probably one of the most interesting attractions in Petchaburi
