IT Monsters Lake
The heightened level of interest in fishing trips in Thailand may have been spurred on by the number of television productions and shows that have focused on the area, but the variety and range of fisheries on offer in the country has helped to provide something for everyone. While there are plenty of fishing resorts found on the coastlines of Thailand, there are also in-land fishing areas that provide alternative fishing options for people enjoying a break or who are working in the country.
IT Monsters Lake is a perfect example of the latter style of fishing resort and as the name suggests, there are plenty of big fish to catch your attention. IT Monsters Lake is found in the province of Ratchaburi, which is around two hours’ drive from Bangkok. This means that this fishery is a popular choice for day-trippers and people looking to stay at the resort for a couple of days. There are plenty of native and imported fish available in this fishery with one of the star attractions being the volume of Amazon Red Tail Catfish. This is a fish that has a number of tactics for dealing with and evading anglers so if you are looking for a challenge, you will find plenty to enjoy at IT Monsters Lake.

Top 3 Things To Do In The Local Area
The Ratchaburi National Museum is a top tourist destination in the local area and the museum has been operating since 1988. The museum is located in what was once the town hall, and the building dates back to 1922, offering a sense of history all by itself. If you are keen to learn more about the history of the province and see many of the artefacts and collections of the area, this is an ideal place to visit.
If you enjoy traditional buildings, take the time to visit Wat Phra Si Ratana Mahathat. Similar in style to Angkor Wat, this temple can be found a moderate walk away from the popular night market area of the province. While there have been major renovations in recent years, the temple remains stunning and there are many archaeological works taking place in the grounds.
If you are keen to see monks in their natural habitat or you have particular interest in their faith, a trip to Khao Wang is in order. Built to house a group of Portuguese envoys, this brightly coloured building plays host to around 30 monks. There is a great view of the city to be enjoyed from here.
