Ang Thong



 

What :

Ang Thong is a small town acting as the administrative seat of Ang Thong province.

A quiet town and province, Ang Thong is usually used as a rest stop as travelers head further north towards Chiang Mai. But those that stay longer on their luxury tours of Thailand quickly find the open rice fields hide many cultural treasures for travelers to discover.

While the giant golden Buddha of Wat Phinitthammasan(an over 300 feet high image of Buddha painted in gold) just outside the edge of town is surely the largest draw to the area, it's just one of many sights waiting to be found. There are around 200 various temples in the area frequented by both travelers and religious pilgrims, and villages that specialize in crafting hand made goods like drums, wicker baskets, and even dolls.


When :

Rains during July and August usually keep the number of visitors to the area low, but the lower temperatures are a welcome respite from the high heat in March and May.

The best time to visit the area is October thru February when temperatures are mild.


Where :

About two hours north of Thailand's capital Bangkok, Ang Thong is easily reached by private vehicle using the country's modern roads.


Who :

Previously seen as little more than a bump in the road, Ang Thong is increasingly becoming a popular destination on the road north to Chiang Mai.


Appropriate Attire :

If you're visiting any of the many temples, it's best to dress conservatively while on holy grounds. For all else, western wear is acceptable.

Bruce Goldman -  November 2013

Having a kind aversion toward travel companies, because of my own ability to develop an original itinerary, I was pleasantly surprised at the level of ease and convenience this company provided.

My wife and I decided on a whim to get married and honeymoon in Thailand (since that was her number one destination spot). Not being familiar with that part of the world, and having already run the gamut of a 200 person wedding party, it was in our best interest to hire an experienced company to make our lives just a little bit easier for the honeymoon. Best decision ever.

We reworked the itinerary with the specialist two or three times and probably drove her nuts. Still, they were extremely patient and found us the best deal to suit our needs.

Daily activities planned for us included excursions to important sites such as the Tiger Temple, river boat tours through the canals and authentic spicy thai indulgences (J woop, my favorite!).

So, if you're looking for extra value added to a travelling experience, I would definitely recommend hiring Easy Yours. They know what they're doing.'
