Phetchaburi Stories and Tips

Kids of Phetchaburi!

Phetchaburi Photo, Phetchaburi, Thailand

On wandering around the many temples of the city, I came upon a treasure on the east side of the river by Thanon Matayawong. Wat Potaram sits here and is easily visible from this side of the river because of its tall, white stupas. On two sides of this temple inside the grounds is a primary school and the kids love having their photos taken!Scampering all over the place in their yellow and purple uniforms it was all but impossible to get them to stand still long enough to take the photos I wanted! It was such a shame I didn't speak Thai as they were obviously inquisitive and I didn't understand their many questions. After half an hour of body language, it was time to venture out into the hot sun again and leave this hive of activity behind with a few precious photos to remember it by!
