Phetchaburi Travel Guide: 74 reviews and 322 photos

Phra Nakorn Khiri Historical Park or shortly called Khao Wang is the most famous attraction of Phetchaburi province.

Khao Wang was built on Samana Mountain. It was King Rama IV's holiday resort in 1860 in neo-classical style. There are royal houses, temples, halls and an observatory where the King Rama IV use to view the stars.

My first visit along ago, everyone must walk up to reach the palace on top of the mountain, many monkeys along the walk trail. Now easier way just take electric tram as you can see in the photo.
