Nakhon Pathom Chedi

Nakhon Pathom Chedi

Possibly the oldest city in Thailand, this historic town is an hour from Bangkok. Visitors should budget a full day to see the sights (Phra Pathom Chedi is the tallest Buddhist monument in the world) and eat the food (like khao larm, a grilled combo of sticky rice, sugar and black beans served in bamboo).

Getting there: Take a train or bus to the site.
