As one of the few areas with strong Christian background with even it`s own cathedral, Chanthaburi is a neat province with lots of natural beauty. The capital, less than 15 minutes from the estate, is nicely draped around lakes and rivers and is free of any industry and therefore enjoys clean air and a lovely climate. All large shopping centers are there, cinemas and a foreign community also. The estate is close to the sea with plenty of great seafood restaurants just a stroll away. Bangkok is about 3hrs away and the ferry to Koh Chang island can be reached in 45 minutes.
