Top Attraction Nonthaburi


On the bank of the Chao Phraya River, Nonthaburi is located in a fertile basin where numerous old temples are dotted among numerous fruit and flower fields. The town is easily accessible by road or river and is only 20 kilometers from Bangkok.


Because of its advantageous location along the Chao Phraya River, Nonthaburi’s history can be traced back to the Ayutthaya Kingdom. The province’s motto highlights the tourist hotspots in Nonthaburi by highlighting the Grand Royal Mansion, renowned Royal Garden, ceramics of Koh Kret, lovely temples, delectable durians, and splendid government buildings.

Nonthaburi has a long history that spans 400 years in the Ayutthaya Kingdom. Initially named Tambon Ban Talad Khwan, this tambon was elevated to the status of Nonthaburi City in 1549 under the reign of King Mahajakrapat. It is known for its agricultural farmland and plenty of groundwater where many orchards nestle alongside the Chao Phraya River.
King Narai the Great observed in 1665 that the river had altered its course and might, as a result, have a detrimental impact on the security of the city. As a result, defenses have been constructed in the Om River delta, where a city pillar has been constructed as a representation of Nonthaburi’s new foundation.


Thailand is an amazing tourist destination all year round, despite its changeable temperatures. It is best to visit Thailand between early November and mid-April. The rain stops and the sky clears up at this point. These times are ideal for going to the beach or seeing the different historical sites. In April, the temperature begins to rise intolerably, and in June, the rainy season begins.

How to get there

Due to the close distance between Bangkok and Nonthaburi, visitors can hire a car or bus to access it.
In Nonthaburi, there are some convenient vehicles for tourists to travel in during their lengths of holiday time, such as cars, buses, and ferries.
In terms of buses, there are some public buses like buses 69, 104, and 166, etc., operated by the Bangkok Mass Transit Authority (BMTA).
Another means of transport is traveling by public daily ferries. Daily Express boats from Wat Ratcha Singh Khon Pier in Amphoe Yanawa and Wat Toei Pier in Amphoe Pak Kret District travel along the Chao Phraya River. The service runs every 20 minutes from 06:00 to 18:00, departing from the dock. Saphan Taksin pier to ferry takes about 1 hour and 10 minutes. It is best to board the orange-flag boat, which occasionally arrives at Phra Arthit (number 13) but departs for Nonthaburi about 10 to 20 minutes later. The original ticket, which costs 15 THB, is still valid. Nonthaburi departs on the last ferry back to Bangkok at 1900.
