My wife recommended that we make a day trip and boy oh boy, was this worth it. Fantastic temples - in fact the largest reclining Ganesha in Thailand, then a pretty good seafood lunch at a restaurant whose name doe not appear here on Tripadvisor and I only have the credit card receipt (silly me)...plus a drive around the place,...

Over this long-holiday week (Labor + Coronation Day), I drove to see the much-publicized mango orchards สวนมะม่วง of Chacoengsao, which unfortunately I was not able to find due to the vagueness of its location/other info, something prone to happen in Thailand tourism but to be dismissed w/Mai Pen Rai=Never Mind spirits. Even after much of googling, I just detected that... More

About 90 minutes away from Bangkok, in neighboring Chachoengsao province sits Wat Sathon upon a river. There are a few complexes here but the most impressive sight is the magnificent silver and gold temple. Weekends and Buddhist days are especially crowed with faithfuls offering 100 boiled eggs each - as is the tradition in this temple. Photographers are advised to... More

I had never heard of this temple before but it's not far from Bangkok and Chonburi. This temple is very famous with thai budhists. If you see them carrying bags of eggs it is for the monks to bless and then they are eaten for good luck! At the weekends it does get very busy and there is a lot... More

There is the famous Buddha in this temple, "Luang Por Sothorn". This Buddha is the symbol of Chachoengsao, and is revered by local residents, which are... More

Rode to the city on a Harley, which was great fun in itself. The trip leader said that Chachoengsao was one of his favourite places as it has not yet become 'homogenised' like many other Thai cities. There are plenty of amazing views and stop offs on the way, so get your sat nav out and find a roundabout journey.... More
