“Set in Thailand’s upper central region, historic Saraburi is rich in heritage sites and just 65kms from the royal city of Ayutthaya. Air-conditioned and regular buses run from Bangkok’s Mochit 2 Northern Bus Station several times a day, and minibuses costing 100 baht for the trip can be had near the city’s Victory Monument.

Saraburi’s bus station is located close by the train terminal and is served by the usual songthaews, tuk-tuks and motorcycle taxis. The songthaews follow well-known routes around the town and also travel to other smaller towns in the province. It’s also possible to hire them for day-trips around the rural countryside, visiting quaint villages and historic sites.”
