Province of region Central Thailand

The province of Samut Sakhon, located west of neighboring Bangkok, offers a unique combination of maritime heritage, local culture and coastal landscapes. It is rarely visited by foreign tourists who sometimes pass by the Mahachai fish market, where visitors can observe the bustle of local fishermen unloading their catch of the day on their train journey to the Mae Klong Railway Market.

As for monuments, Wat Khok Kham is one of the oldest temples in the region. But Samut Sakhon is especially famous for its salt tides and a very particular art, Benjarong, a type of porcelain painted in a unique way. The village of Ban Don Kai Dee is the most famous for this.

Whether exploring local culture, tasting fresh seafood or relaxing by the sea, Samut Sakhon province is a nice getaway close to the Thai capital.

The province of Nakhon Pathom is located in the central region of Thailand just before that of Kanchanaburi
