We picked up a car from the Airport and headed down to Phetchaburi from Bangkok. The journey is not to far, about 2:30. This is our first time driving in Thailand and we have to say, it’s a fairly calm and orderly experience.
Phetchaburi is not really that popular with tourists, so there are few English-speaking people around and not so many restaurants with ridiculous english menus, which I find quite pleasing. However, our Thai isn’t great so, getting an order in from a Thai menu is quite tricky, but not impossible, everyone likes a picture.
The next evening we headed out to the famed Night Markets, to soak up some atmosphere, take a look at what’s on offer and grab some food. The place was alive with activity and intoxicating aromas drifting from the many stalls. Fantastic!
In the morning we decided to go and take a look around the Wat Tham Khao Luang Cave Temple. It is situated not to far from our accommodation, and fairly cheap to get in 15 Baht each. Enormous inside with some great lighting FX coming in via the surface holes. The cave is said to contain the footprint of Buddha.
