Chanthaburi

Moon City

A small town on the east coast of Thailand and the capital of the eponymous province, Chanthaburi offers an interesting cultural and architectural mix due to Chinese and Vietnamese settlement and the French occupation that took place between 1893 and 1905. With a population of around 27,000, the town provides a relaxed stopover on route to nearby islands or coastal towns with beachside accommodation. If you do spend time here, add the bustling streetside gem markets to your Chanthaburi itinerary if only for the wondrous colors on show. Arrange all the small, but important details of your Chanthaburi trip itinerary using our Thailand tour builder tool .
