The Thai tour guides will explain the significance of this temple and make a donation on behalf of the group.

Experience a working palm sugar plantation

No visit to Phetchaburi would be complete without a visit to a palm sugar plantation. This is a picturesque setting where lush palm trees sway in the breeze. Your guides, along with Khun Jaem, the owner of the plantation, will step you through the entire process, from the growing of the palm trees to the careful extraction of the golden nectar.

Cooking experience of traditional Phetchaburi sweet

Phetchaburi is known for its traditional sweets. Here you will not only sample these treats but also gain an understanding of how to make them. You can watch or get involved with making Khanom Tann.

Taste products made from the toddy palm

Sample some of the palm sugar products on offer, enhancing your understanding of the region’s rich culinary heritage. From the sugar to sweets to palm sugar wine, this is the heart and soul of Phetchaburi’s food heritage.

Explore the Nakhon Khiri Historical Park

Your next stop starts with a cable car ride to the hillside grounds of Phra Nakhon Khiri Historial Park. Phra Nakhon Khiri Historial Park has panoramic views across the surrounding district and the grounds are spread out over three separate hilltops. There is a bit of walking to the main pagoda and view points so its best to have great walking shoes on.

Explore the street food and festival activities

You are then taken to the main entrance of the festival. We will meet up with the team and Co-Sponsors of this tour, TAT Phetchaburi. They will be showcasing traditional Thai dress and you can get your photo taken with them. If you want to get dressed up, you can! There is an additional fee that you can pay direct to the TAT Phetchaburi Team. From there you have time to explore the festival and eat whatever takes your fancy.
