If you have come to Petchaburi, this is a must! Beautiful view and walks, with many monkeys, and beautiful temples in a very nice setting.

A cable car ride up a steep hill took us up to the mountaintop temple. First observation is the breathtaking views, no English translation to state what we were viewing, numerous steps so I felt I’d done exercise for the day and the cheeky temple...More

We've driven past so many times while heading for the coast and finally decided to make a stop. The complex is spread over 3 hilltops so can be taxing in the heat. There was some good information in English at the bottom of the hill...More

Khao Wang is probably the main landmark of Phetchabury. The hill dominates the skyline and it is no wonder that a king chose it as a place of residence. The palace complex consists of many buildings - stables, theater, pavillions and living quarters but the...More

I don't think you can do it. Photograph doesn't allowed inside palaces and buildings. But you can take photo at outdoor area.
