Attractions information

Sanctuary of Truth

The Sanctuary of Truth is one of the most notable attractions in Chonburi Province but is largely ignored by the traveling masses.

This remarkable structure, which is equivalent height of a twenty-story building, has been constructed in traditional Thai style entirely without the use of any nails.

Using Thai building methods from a bygone era, The Sanctuary of Truth is held together by wooden pegs and is ornately carved to show the relationships between human beings and the universe according to Eastern philosophies.

On arrival, you'll be introduced to a more leisurely method of transport, as you climb into the pony & trap for your journey down to The Sanctuary of Truth itself. The first glimpse from above is most memorable and whets the appetite for a closer view.

Inside the building it's remarkably cool and you'll be amazed by the myriad of intricate carvings which are visible everywhere. The timber used in the construction is suitably aged, having been taken from dismantled buildings throughout the country.

In addition to The Sanctuary of Truth itself, there is an excellent Thai Cultural Show which includes Thai dancing, Traditional fighting, Thai boxing and a Dolphin Show. Here you can even swim with the dolphins if you come prepared.

Why is a private tour a better choice?

With a private tour, you have the freedom to choose what you want to do and when you want to do it. There is much more room for flexibility and changes to your itinerary at every step of the way because you don't have to consider the needs of other travelers. The flexibility and freedom to make the most of your time is the reason why so many people choose to take a private tour rather than a group tour.
