Moon canyon in Thailand
Ratchaburi’s ‘Grand Canyon’ is hidden away in the Chom Bueng District of the province; many visitors claim it to be a geographic wonder as well as a newly discovered place worth checking out before crowds start flocking over.
There’s a crater within the canyon filled with emerald green waters, almost like a mini hidden lagoon created by rainwater.
This Ratchaburi attraction also kind of poses an excavation-site feel; it looks like somewhere you’d go to look for fossils.
