Wat Khao Di Salak
Just 100 km away from Bangkok, Suphan Buri is an ancient town
rich in natural and historical heritage. The province was once an important
border town involving battles and important wars during the period of the
Ayutthaya kingdom. So, today, travelling around the province is like drifting
through historical novels. Historical evidence leads you to travel to the
past such as Don Chedi Monument, Wat Khao Khuen whose abbot played a significant
role in Thai history, U Thong National Museum, etc. Furthermore, various
natural wonders such as Phu Toei National Park, Bueng Chawak Aquarium, as
well as the famous local-style cake Sali Suphan always impress visitors.
Suphan Buri occupies a total area of 5,358 sq km and is administratively divided
into 10 districts (Amphoes); Mueang Suphan Buri, Doem Bang Nang Buat, Bang
Pla Ma, Si Prachan, Song Phi Nong, Sam Chuk, U Thong, Don Chedi, Dan Chang
and Nong Ya Sai.
