Practical guide to go and visit Ban Krut

At about 80 km in the South of Prachuap Khiri Khan, Ban Krut is a highly tourist destination for thai tourists arriving by group buses. So this haven of tranquility with its long beach, the mountains with a golden-roofed Wat Tang Sai temple with its huge Buddha of the same brightness, completely changes on weekends and thai holidays.
At that times, the accommodations prices easily jump 20 to 30%. The beach is ideally oriented for a sunset on the horizon.
Besides, the waterfront and the Wat Tang Sai with its Pra Mahatat Jede Pukde Prakad pagoda and the big Pra Phut Takitti Sirichai bouddha, do not expect much to see but is good place to live during week days. There is also a small port in a river between the beach and the road that goes to the mountain of the temple behind the Ruen Talay Resort. Rent a scooter or a bike and go around, you will find many pieces of deserted beach. If you stay several days you usually can negotiate the price of the room down.
On the waterfront when you arrive in the city, the right side is the least busy with the most luxurious resorts and at left is the area that has the highest concentration of mid-range resorts ( count at least 500 THB and most of the time 700 THB for very well bungalows during the week and between 800 and 1000 THB during week-ends and Thai holidays ).
Note that in addition to visiting the temple, in the morning a trip to the market next to the train station can be fun especially to buy what you eat during your travel to other destinations.
