About Palmgalo

Home
The province capital Prachin Buri is located about 20 km (12.5 miles) south of the Palm Garden Lodge and can be reached by Tuk Tuk from the Palm Garden Lodge in a comfortable way. All administrative facilities and banks of the surrounding area can be found at the province capital. Besides this, Prachin Buri is a typically busy province capital which at first sight seems to be rather nonspectacular.

Along the river shore there is a small promenade for pedestrians with a richly decorated shrine which is very much adored by the Buddhist population.

In the center of the city there is a wide place with a monument honoring Chulalongkorn. This place is often used for public festivals and other ceremonies.

Behind the place one can find the Governor's Building and passing the House of the Province Government, one reaches the National Museum of the City of Prachin Buri.

In the small museum there are some historically valuable goods from the Mon period and the Khmer era wich might be interesting for those interested in culture.

Certainly each visit to the numerous markets and night markets in Prachin Buri is an exotic experience. Due to the absent tourism in the province of Prachin Buri these markets do not deal with junk souvenirs and other keepsakes, but they present an original trading place with prices that equally correspond to the average incomes of the inhabitants.

During a longer stay, there will certainly be an occasion to visit one of these markets together with the staffof the Palm Garden Lodge.
