This is a typical Thai city and only one person I met spoke English. Nevertheless I enjoyed myself just walking around taking in the sights. I spent about 3 hours exploring.

I and my wife had an incredible day out on 30 April 2017 thanks to Peter our English speaking guide. He rang our hotel in Bangkok the previous day and left a message regarding the pickup time in the morning. Peter was at the hotel lobby promptly and first drove us to the 100 years old market of Talad Khlong Suan. We browsed the stalls and strolled around the market for about half an hour and had an opportunity to purchase some items. Peter then took us to the temple of Wat Saman Rattanaram where we saw a collection of Buddhist and Hindu statues, most notably a Giant Reclining Ganesha. On the way to the temple he made us taste the most delicious pineapple and at the Saman Rattanaram temple we tasted the most refreshing coconut water. He changed the itinerary to suit us as we wanted lunch a bit later. We drove to Wat Pho Bangkla, a temple with magnificent reclining Buddha in the midst of trees filled with fruit bats. We have never seen hundreds of bats in broad daylight. We then headed down to the riverside and hop aboard for a boat to cruise along the Bang Pakong River. Afterwards we visited the visually impressive Golden temple of Wat Pho Bangkla. Our last stop was at the Palm Sap Village, where we had the chance to taste delicious palm juice. Peter checked with us as to what we would like for lunch and contacted the restaurant with our preferences. We had a typically Thai lunch at the local riverside restaurant before the journey back to our Bangkok hotel. Many thanks Peter.

My wife recommended that we make a day trip and boy oh boy, was this worth it. Fantastic temples - in fact the largest reclining Ganesha in Thailand, then a pretty good seafood lunch at a restaurant whose name doe not appear here on Tripadvisor and I only have the credit card receipt (silly me)...plus a drive around the place, which was awesome ....

Over this long-holiday week (Labor + Coronation Day), I drove to see the much-publicized mango orchards สวนมะม่วง of Chacoengsao, which unfortunately I was not able to find due to the vagueness of its location/other info, something prone to happen in Thailand tourism but to be dismissed w/Mai Pen Rai=Never Mind spirits. Even after much of googling, I just detected that the orchards all seemed to be private venues, being open to pre-booked parties only. On the other hand, I made an unexpected encounter with Bang Khla water market ตลาดน้ำบางคล้า, which was packed with locals shopping/dining on the breezy banks of the Bang Pakong river on the day, during the lunch hours. This type of unexpectedness is the flip good-side of Thai tourism, so proved once again. The riverside view itself is worth a visit, even during mango off-seasons. I believe the mango orchards, too, would be more well-organized for local tourism promotion in the years ahead.

About 90 minutes away from Bangkok, in neighboring Chachoengsao province sits Wat Sathon upon a river. There are a few complexes here but the most impressive sight is the magnificent silver and gold temple. Weekends and Buddhist days are especially crowed with faithfuls offering 100 boiled eggs each - as is the tradition in this temple.
Photographers are advised to go early in the morning to catch the morning sun's effect on the colors and spires of this temple.

I had never heard of this temple before but it's not far from Bangkok and Chonburi. This temple is very famous with thai budhists. If you see them carrying bags of eggs it is for the monks to bless and then they are eaten for good luck!

At the weekends it does get very busy and there is a lot of traffic but it is worth a look.

Wat Sothon Wararam Woraviharn or Wat Hong is a beautiful temple which is understood to be the oldest temple in Chachoengsao. It was built in the reign of the late Krung Sri Ayudhaya time. There is the famous Buddha in this temple, "Luang Por Sothorn". This Buddha is the symbol of Chachoengsao, and is revered by local residents, which are understood to be mainly of Chinese descent.

At night the temple is lighted up beautifully and is a sight to behold. A short hour's drive out of Bangkok city & it's another place to visit.

Rode to the city on a Harley, which was great fun in itself. The trip leader said that Chachoengsao was one of his favourite places as it has not yet become 'homogenised' like many other Thai cities. There are plenty of amazing views and stop offs on the way, so get your sat nav out and find a roundabout journey. The city has lots of old and plenty of new. It seems to have a strongly Chinese influence, and this adds to the experience. We had lunch in the 'new' market, in a restaurant perched over the river. Ferry boats pulled up along side so it was wonderfully busy. The food was superb and it was no surprise that every restaurant and cafe in the market was doing excellent business. Rode back past the huge Wat Soton. Didn't stop as it seemed packed. Called into the 100 Year Old Market on the way back. Fascinating places, wonderful trip. Only negative was deluge rains on return to Bangkok. I still feel damn 24 hrs later.
