Listed under Historic Towns and Villages in Central Thailand, Thailand.

Pin It

Phetchaburi, one of the country's oldest towns, possibly dates from the same period as Ayutthaya and Kanchanaburi, though it's believed to have been first settled during the Dvaravati period. After the rise of the Thai nation, it served as an important royal military city and was home to several princes who were groomed for ascendance to the throne. Phetchaburi's palace and historically significant temples highlight an excellent day trip. It's just 1 hour from Hua Hin.
