Introduction to Sa Kaeo Travel Guide

Sa Kaeo is a province in Eastern Thailand. Chanthaburi, Chachoengsao, Prachinburi, Nakhon Ratchasima, and Buriram are neighboring provinces. To the east, it shares Cambodian borders with Banteay Meanchey and Battambang.

Sa Kaeo was established as a province in 1993. It is therefore one of Thailand’s newest provinces. The name Sa Kaeo, which translates as ‘crystal pond’, refers to two ponds (Sa Kaeo Sa Khwan) that previously held sacred water and were utilized for the coronation ceremony.

The region was formerly an important and affluent society with a history extending back to the Dvaravati Kingdom, as evidenced by the remnants of ancient monuments spread over the province, as well as artifacts that shed light on Sa Kaeo’s ancestors’ legacy and pride. Apart from historical relics, Sa Kaeo has an abundance of natural resources, including the Pang Sida and Ta Phraya National Parks, as well as unique, canyon-like soil sculptures called ‘Lalu’ produced by earth subsidence. Additionally, Prasat Sdok Kok Thom, a magnificent Khmer temple, is also located in Sa Kaeo.
