Experience the top cultural and natural sites of Petchaburi on a full-day tour from Hua Hin. Present offerings to the monks at Wat Mahathat Worawihan, explore the summer palace complex of King Mongkut, and marvel at the Buddha images in Khao Luang Cave.
What to Expect
Petchaburi province has been described as a place where Siam’s golden era of Ayuthaya still lives on. This is amply demonstrated in the magnificent architecture of its palaces and ancient temples.

On this full-day tour, you’ll drive north for around an hour from Hua Hin to Wat Mahathat Worawihan, one of the oldest and most notable temples in the area, built by the Khmer. Part of the temple is more than a thousand years old.

Make merit at the temple by presenting the monks with offerings that have been prepared in advance, and receive their blessings.

Continue on to Phra Nakorn Kiri, also known as Khao Wang or Palace Mountain. Here, on the top of the mountain, is a complex of buildings that includes the summer palace of King Rama IV, or King Mongkut. A cable car takes visitors up and down the mountain.

Next you’ll visit Khao Luang, or Royal Mountain, which is actually a small hill with a cave that’s filled with ancient Buddha images. There is also a beautiful temple to the right of the cave entrance.

You can buy bananas and corn from the local vendors to feed the monkeys that gather at the entrance of the cave.

Enjoy a buffet lunch at a hotel in Petchaburi before returning to Hua Hin.
