  • I visited on that wish will come true at 3 x. Lol getting there comes the Lotto from the East bus station. Because it is written in pink elephant and Japan right away. Out 100 Baht tickets! From the East bus station go to cetunsaobas Terminal. Sǎwngthǎew from there? Watts Amman went on rides and say. Sǎwngthǎew? One is to end bus terminal. I heard people in the bus, so we had no idea at first. Walk through Watts Aman non-market, such as if, then how may change. Watts Amman itself is a local person who? Many staff. Japanese is a little bit. Time is an hour and a half? To do towards the end but I have time. Lol

  • A very local Thai place, didn’t see any foreigners. Very interesting place with bazaar and temples, great place for the family to spend the day. A lot of bowls for you to put coins in, kids will probably like it very much. A lot of good spots for photos. I like the market, lots of good food and cheap groceries. A must go place.
  • Nice place to visit. It had big lord ganesha temple. If you are going for find peace its not worthful. But for the big staue it's good to see. It's located at bank of river. Nice view. Avoid to go in afternoon too hot and humid. Good time to visit in morning or evening
  • In Thailand, Ganesha is called Phra Phikanet (พระพิฆเนศ) and is worshipped as the deity of fortune and success, and the remover of obstacles. He is associated with arts, education and trade. Shrines and statues for this elephant-headed Hindu God can be seen all around Thailand. Some of the largest statues of Ganesha can be found in Chachoengsao province. This is an easy day trip from Bangkok. But, you would need your own transport.This first large Seated Ganesha can be foundat Wat Phrong Akat in Chachoengsao (seemap). It is 49 meter high and 19 meters wide.This large Standing Ganesha is at Khlong Khuean Ganesh International park in Chachoengsao (seemap). It is 30 meters high.This large Reclining Ganesha is at Wat SamanRattanaram in Chachoengsao (seemap). It is 16 meters high and 22 meters long.
  • Chachoengsao, Paet Rio, has an old history dating back to the reign of King Borommatrailokkanat in the Ayutthaya period. Most of the people have settled near the Bang Pakong River and along canals. Luangpho Phuttha Sothon and is a centre of faith of the people of Paet Rio. In the past, Chachoengsao was a fourth class city under the Ministry of Defence. During the reign of King Rama I, it was attached to the Ministry of Interior. Until the reign of King Rama V who changed the administration system, Chachoengsao became a city in the Prachin Buri Circle. In 1916, its status was changed from a city to a province. Chacheongsao is a Khmer word which means a deep canal. The name Paet Rio comes from the story that the city once teemed with giant snake head fish; up to 8 cuts were required on the sides in the making of sun dried fish. Bang Pakong River originates from the Korat plateau, passes Prachin Buri, Amphoe Bang Nam Priao and Bang Khla of Chachoengsao, and flows out into the Thai Bay at Amphoe Bang Pakong covering a distance of 230 kilometres on it’s journey. The route of the river passes many interesting places such as Khrommakhun Maruphong Siriwats Residence, ancient fortress and a previous City Hall, old rafts and many Wats, and arrives at Wat Pho Bang Khla to the spectacular sights of the local bat community nesting here. Tourists can hire boats at the pier of Wat Sothon Wararam Worawihan or in the town. The long tailed boat can accommodate 8 to 10 people and 40 people on the larger boats. In March 2015 I was back in one of my favourite Provinces, Chachoengsao and my friend drove me to this wonderful temple near the Bang Pakong river. Wat Saman Rattanaram where you can see a giant Reclining Ganesha. This temple is situated on the bank of Bang Pakong river. There are two Ganesha Temples. This one with the pink Ganesha, is some distance north of the city. Wat Saman Rattanaram is located in Bang Kaeo, a sub district of Chachoengsao. The temple is situated near the Bang Pakong Dam, north of Chachoengsao. The temple features a giant reclining image of Ganesha, the Elephant God, said to be the largest of Thailand. The statue of the Hindu deity measures 16 metres high and 22 metres long and made from pink stucco texture in 2009, it took four months to build this. There is a museum containing sacred objects in the basement of the statue. Around the base are 32 different postures of Ganesh statues enshrined with 5 servants rats in front. Only in Thailand would you find a religious site which combines shrines to Buddhism, Hinduism, Taoism all on display in one temple. Near the premises is a market selling a variety of food and products. I have to say it was one of the best and most interesting markets I had visited. The temple was packed with visitors the day I was there due to it being a Sunday and many Thai people had a day off work.
  • The statues are huge and beautiful. It is busy on weekends. There is a boat tour at the temple. We went there twice. The river views are beautiful.
