Chanthaburi Province

Noen Wong Fortress, Chanthaburi

Chantaburi, otherwise know as “Mueang Chan”, is a fertile province with various factors contributing to successful cultivation of fruits, especially durian, rambutan, mangosteen, and other economic crops such as pepper and para rubber tree.

The province also serves as a hub of gemstone trading, with diversified tourist attractions to offer ranging from mountains, forests, waterfalls, beaches, places and objects of antiquity to soft adventure and ecotourism activities such as trekking, mountain biking, rafting, etc.

Once a prehistoric habitation area, a number of stone tools and artifacts from the Neolithic Age were discovered during surveys at several archaeological sites in Chantaburi; namely, Amphoe Tha Mai and a hillside plain at Ban Khlong Bon in Amphoe Pong Nam Ron.
