Photographer's Note

Chanthaburi is the capital of the province of the same name in Eastern Thailand. It is a useful transport hub for accessing the islands Koh Chang and Koh Kut and for border crossings with Cambodia.

Chantaburi is notable for durians, gem trading and its French-style cathedral.

With its peaceful riverside setting and a handful of streets lined with old shophouses, it made a perfect stopover on our way to/from Cambodia. And there are some excellent place to eat. Several local dishes have a strong Vietnamese influence.

This picture shows a small, but beautiful wat near the center of town. Unfortunately I haven't been able to trace its name, but it's uphill, right next to the river.
