Baan Hom Thian @ Suan Pheng

Ratchaburi is a province that provides a nice easy weekend drive from Bangkok. A major attraction in the area is Baan Home Thian (the ‘House of Scented Candles’) which is located near the kilometer 33 marker on highway No. 3087.

Baan Home Thian is a quaint photographic destination. The decorations are very retro with old items, toys, furniture and vehicles on display among the shops and gardens. The main merchandise for sale here is a large range of colorful scented candles, available in various designs and sizes. The owner makes this uniquely designed candle for local and international markets. The prices range from small (25 baht), medium (50 baht), large (120 baht) and X-large (160 baht). Don’t miss the opportunity to make your own candles at the candle making workshop.
