Map of Petchabun

Due to the huge Pa Sak river basin with mountain ranges running along both the western and eastern sides of the province, Phetchabun has always been famous for it's fertility of the land, it is an agriculturally highly productive area. The name of the province literally means "The land of crops and foods".

Due to the natural beauty, mountainous forests and national parks, the province has high potential for tourism. Nam Nao National Park is one of Thailand's most beautiful parks.

The ancient city of Petchabun has a long history and one of the highlight to visit is Wat Mahatat, the City Pillar Shrine and Wat Trai Phum.

Si Thep is an ancient town where many architectural structures still remain to indicate its past prosperity during the 11th - 18th Buddhist centuries. Over one hundred ancient sites, all built with bricks and laterite, most of them have since crumbled. There are also remains of several ponds spread out all over the area. Some parts of architectural nature and interest have been discovered such as elaborate lintels, plastered designs and human skeletons adorned with ornamental pieces. In 2000, the park received the Thailand Tourism Award for guaranteeing welfare of culture and ancient buildings.
