Chantaburi Trip - Day 1

Good Morning Thailand!  As expected, after having a good sleep the night before, I woke up feeling refreshed and excited to see more of Chantaburi.  As soon as I got up from bed, I tried to see the whole view of the city through my glass window.  My room on the 17th floor was just perfect as it gave me a glimpse of the whole downtown of Chantaburi.

So surprising that for a predominantly Buddhist country like Thailand, I could find a Bible on top of my bed side table and it really warms me. Only then that I know that there are also lots of Christian people in Thailand.

After I took a quick shower, I decided to go down to the hotel's lobby area. What could be e better way to start my day other than trying the breakfast buffet from the hotel's coffee shop.  This was included in my room rate, so why not? (lol)

Located on the eastern part of Thailand, Chantaburi is closest to the Cambodia boarder, Pailin.  This province is well known for it's famous stones and gems particularly sapphires and rubies.  No wonder I could see a lot of gems shops all over the downtown area. The province is also famous for it's tropical fruits like mangosteen, durian and rambutan.  There is no doubt that this province has a lot to offer in terms of it's natural beauty and needless to say, 3 days is not enough to explore all the interesting places in the province.  For a start, I would just highlight the hotel where I stayed in Chantaburi so I could give some recommendations to those who would be interested to visit …
