  • The Chantaboon waterfront community can be seen as a kind of old town or China town of Chanthaburi. Many expatriate Chinese and Vietnamese live in near the Chanthaburi River. Since there are there narrow streets and paths, it is better to commit this area on foot. The locals sell their own products such as snacks, sandwiches, drinks, etc. There are some small cafés and restaurants and other shops. Still, some smaller, Buddhist temples and Chinese shrines are integrated in the area. Interesting is the diverse mixture of older wooden houses and modern rock or concrete buildings. Properly full, the streets in this area - with even more merchants - become Festival at night if local festivals such as Loi Krathong or the vegetarian. The old town is seen in the Sukhaphiban road and Thaluang road can be either from the main road or from the Catholic cathedral "Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception" (here there is also a possible parking) committed on a bridge over the river of Chanthaburi be. If you in the city or this area, several hours staying here worthwhile.
