        “Mr.Sukjai” comes back again to lead you to tour Thailand in a simple style.This time I will take you to Saraburi, the gate to the northeast. Saraburi has been an important city since ancient times. It is assumed to have been built in the reign of King Maha Chakkaphat of the Kingdom of Ayutthaya.The area were taken from some parts of Lopburi, Nakhon Ratchasima and Nokhon nayok to form the city of Saraburi. The city then can be connected with the northeast by the Pasak river.  

        Though Saraburi is not a big city compares to the neighboring, it is prominent in its landscape with mountains, plateaus and low  flat plains good for farming.The Pasak river is the main source of the water supplied for agriculture in the province. Natural and cultural tourist attractions make the city one of the interesting destinations for tourists as described in the slogan of the province, “Trail of Buddha, Pa Sak Chollasit Dam, base of industry, the best of agriculture, many attractions to travel, the best of curry puff, good milk, make a merit flower festival, glowing sunflower fields.”

        Saraburi is the base for cement industry and food industry. This brings people from other part of the country come to work and settle down so the needs for residential building is high. The housing development and home builder entrepreneurs came to invest in the city since the past 10 years. The concept of future home and environmentally friendly materials is introduced and well accepted by the consumers. “Mr.Sukjai” will take you to well-known tourist attractions.
