This sleepy town is building a reputation for the arts through statement sculptures. Taweesak “Lolay” Srithongdee’s two contrasting characters, Dollar and Dek Din, have joined local ceramicist Wasinburee Supanichvoraparch’s giant polka-dot dog, i-Jub. Ratchaburi’s own public gallery, d Kunst
, has also just opened its art library. If you’re looking for a suitably artistic hotel to stay in, check out the cool Space 59
, which offers chic, industrial rooms for THB650 ($27) for superior and THB1,350 ($56) for deluxe.
