Phetchaburi is one of Thailand's oldest cities and is known for the most famous palace is the Summer Palace of King Rama 5 on Khao Wang Hill which entire grounds consist of royal halls, palaces, temples and other buildings elegantly built in a balanced Thai, neoclassical Western and Chinese architectural style. The old palaces were converted into museums that displayed royal amenities used by King Rama IV and King Rama V. Wat Mahat Temple is a mixture of the late Ayutthaya and early Rattanakosin styles with an adaptation of the ancient Khmer monastery. Khao Luang Cave Temple was built during the reign of King Chulalongkorn and has a hole through which sunlight comes and shimmers on stones, making the cave colorful and allowing visitors to see all the beauty of the inside of the cave.

The showpiece is a 42m-tall five-tiered Ayuthaya-style prang (corn-cob shaped stupa) decorated in stucco relief, a specialty of Phetchaburi’s local artisans you'll see all over town. Inside the wí·hăhn (sanctuary) that fronts it are important, though highly damaged, early-20th-century murals.

Stop At: Tham Khao Luang Cave

About 4km north of town is Khao Luang Cave, a dramatic stalactite-stuffed cavern that's one of Thailand’s most impressive cave shrines, and a favorite of King Rama IV when he was a monk. Accessed via steep stairs, it's lit by a heavenly glow every morning (clouds permitting) when sunbeams filter in through the natural skylight.
