Phetkasem Road, Rai Som, Phetchaburi 76000, Thailand
Situated around 75kms southwest of Bangkok, Phetchaburi is the capital of the province of the same name. The city is on the main Route 4 heading from Bangkok to the south of the country, and buses from Bangkok and the south pass through frequently throughout the day and night.
Travellers can catch air-conditioned, VIP buses from Bangkok’s Southern bus terminal, with the journey lasting approximately two hours. Buses from other southern cities such as Cha Am, Hua Hin, Krabi and Surat Thani run regularly each day. Local buses also run between the provincial towns and further afield in the south.
Phetchaburi’s bus station is just a few hundred metres from the main road. Here, travellers can stock up on local food or nip to the nearby 7-Eleven and buy snacks for the journey. Tuk-tuk and songthaew drivers are always at the ready to take you to your next stop after getting off the bus.
Another way of getting to Phetchaburi is to take the train from Bangkok’s Hua Lumphong station. Trains run from 08:05 until 22:50 at regular intervals throughout the day and the journey usually takes between two and a half and three and a half hours. Whether taking the bus or train, it’s best to pre-book online to ensure you have a seat as this is a popular route.
