in #travellast month

Apart from “Nam Tok Kao Chon” as presented in my previous two posts; and, another one place that I would like to recommend you to visit if you travel to Ratchaburi province is “Baan Hom Tien”...

The meaning of "Baan Hom Tien" is:

Baan means house

Hom means fragrant, smell good

Tien means candle

Yeah! “Baan Hom Tien” is an amazing candle house. I think if you are a candle lover, this place is a paradise for you.

There are a lot of fragrant candles in various styles and they are very beautiful and unique.

The place is very large, apart from the candle shops, you will also see many other small shops around the area.

Most of the shops are well decorated in Thai traditional style and some amazing arts.

Everything seems to be colorful.

I also love that they were built with natural bamboo and the surrounding atmosphere looks really nice; there are a lot of trees around the area, the place is well designed, etc.

Some shops have vintage style decoration.

There are some interesting vintage items; old televisions (they were the same items that my parents used when I was a kid.), old radios, ancient chairs, vintage lamps, old households (blue pots, old food carriers - or we call "Pinto" in Thai - last photo), etc.

I can guarantee you that you will enjoy taking your time shopping and taking photos there for hours. ;)

p.s. As "Baan Hom Tien" is very large, I would like to divide the photos into three parts, part I (amazing candles and other beautiful shops) that you already saw in this post, part II (photography corners with beautiful decoration and amazing arts) and part III (restaurants with wonderful mountain views) will be presented to you in my next two posts. Please stay tuned! ;))
