The French were only in Chantaburi for 11 years but they left their mark in the pretty shuttered two-storey frontages of the waterfront district, where Chinese traders first did business centuries ago. Many of them seem still to be here, their cluttered warehouse/trading/living/sleeping rooms (there's...More

Authentic community slowly being rooted out by the tourism business… It's a great walk, with plenty of small shops and coffee places and a relaxed atmosphere! Lovely place, not so tourist trap…

Well established Thai Chinese community with well preserved buildings and few colorful Chinese temples. Many street food is sold here (mainly sweets and simple dishes like noodles, chic coffee shops mix well too). Definitely, must see place for both, food and historical importance.

Chantaburi ancient river commune is nice walk along from King Tak monument. It take 1 hour / 1.5 KM by walk. Many traditional sweets and noodles are along streets like old town. Picture and antique hotels, home stay and shops are right there.^_^

Walking along the community with slow speed, looking around to find something to eat and drink make you feel relaxing. If you can spend time for what interested you, just do it. The other end route is the cathedral you should not miss.

Yes you can try the Chanthaburi river cruise. For a small fee of 600B, you get a slow and gentle cruise along Chanthaburi river, as you see the sights and take many memorable photos of Chanthaburi waterfront community, from inside your floating vessel. Call 0615955866...More

The waterfront street is a nice mix of the traditional thai food stalls and shops, and trendy coffee shops and restaurants. The community was located in the beginning and showed really nice pictures from around town. The garden was nice, but starting to degrade.
