Chachoengsao Province
And Thailand Tourist Attractions


    

Just east of Bangkok is Chachoengsao province which occupies an area of 5,351 square kilometers. Chachoengsao is approximately 100 kilometers away from Bangkok and it is administratively divided into 9 Amphoes and 2 King Amphoes.

Chachoengsao province is rarely visited by foreign tourists because it is not on the major rail and rail networks from Bangkok. And that is why hardly any foreign tourists know that Chachoengsao province is home to one of the most sacred Buddha images in Thailand.

The Phra Phuttha Sothon Buddha image is housed in Wat Sothon Wararam Warawihaan and it just 198 cm (77 inches) tall. This sacred image of Buddha is associated with a famous Buddhist monk who had holy powers and actually predicted the exact moment of his death. The temple is located on the edge of Bangpakong River and was built during the Ayutthaya period.

Then there is the Wat Chin Prachasamoson which is a temple built with Chinese architecture and was built by believers of the Buddhist Mahayana doctrine.

Besides these attractions, the other attractions of Chachoengsao province are various festivals and events being held right round the year. In March/April, Paet Riu Mango Festival and Agricultural Products Fair takes place. During this fair, mango products are released in the market and there are many competitions and exhibitions are held.

The Chinese New Year is held during January/February and is celebrated over a 5-day period. The first day of this festival marks a colorful procession by different Amphoes. The highlights of this festival are entertainment and stalls selling local produce and beauty products.
