I have never thought about coming here. Man, I don’t think I have even heard about this place. The few places I know about Thailand, and I guess is same with most people are Bangkok, Phuket, Pattaya, and Chiang Mai. Through a friend, I was lucky enough to be introduced to this place – Prachinburi 304 to be exact.

A little about Prachinburi 304. “304 Industrial Park sits within BOI Zone 3 facilitated highly preferable tax allowances while offers the nearest proximity to Bangkok, as well as, the convenient access to Laem Chabang Seaport, Suvarnabhumi Airport, and Nakorn Rachasima -a major labor resource zone.” Why this place is ideal is because it is not flood-prone like Bangkok. Remember the amount of damage that Toyota and some of the car manufacturers faced during the last major flooding in Bangkok?
The industrial park is a major part of Prachinburi 304. It gives life and helps generate income for the residents here. This place is more peaceful as compared to Bangkok, and you will definitely find that things are slightly cheaper here. They even have their mini Chatuchak market, right opposite the Industrial Park. This is to cater to those hungry stomachs right after a long day’s of work.
Market in Prachinburi 304. Many varieties of great tasting food!
So much for the short introduction. A couple more photos and will continue to share more in the next post. Cheers
