We are surrounded by two beautiful provinces of Thailand : Lopburi and Saraburi. The National Park of Khao Yai is just at a 45 min drive from our resort and is a great place to visit on a day tour. Many sites are of great interest such as temples, caves, honey farms, waterfalls...
Saraburi is one of the most authentic provinces in Thailand, many of the local customs can be discovered in Saraburi all year long.
Saraburi is one of the central provinces in Thailand. The town of Saraburi has always had an important role since ancient times. Two national parks are located in the province, Namtok Chet Sao Noi protects 28 km² around a scenic waterfall and Phra Puttachai protects the Khao Sam Lan Forest, which consists of hilly landscapes and is the source of several rivers and waterfalls.
The most important Buddhist temple is Wat Phra Phutthabat, built under King Songtham in the 17th century, is located at only 20 min from the resort. It is the most popular pilgrimage site in central Thailand. People leaving in the Saraburi province are mainly farmers so while visiting this amazing province you will have the chance to visit many types of farms : Dairy Farm, Bee Farm and even a Crocodile farm.

Lopburi is on the East side of the Chao Phraya river valley, between the Lopburi River and
Pa Sak Rivers. Lopburi is known for the monkey temple in the center of the city but as well for its beautiful sunflower fields, blooming from November to December. Very close by the resort, in the Lopburi province is the Pasak Chonlasit Dam where taking a stroll at sunset seems like the best place to be. A local market is not too far away, many of the locals would sell fresh delicacies from the province.
