General Information about Prachuap Khiri Khan

Capital of the province with the same name, Prachuap Khiri Khan is far from the agitation of its neighbour Hua Hin and still has not much foreigners tourists. The city does not lack of charm with its beautiful seafront, a temple perched on a hill where monkeys live and that offers a magnificent view on the bay, without forgetting the atypical Ao Manao beach, its golf with often yellowed grass except for the green just before the beach, its pier, the countryside and the mountains around. Prachuap has preserved its authenticity and is a very pleasant stop for enjoying the sea and the seafood served in restaurants, doing bike excursions in the area. If you have time go discover the Sam Roi Yot Park nearby.
Do not be afraid to enter the military base in the South of the city. It is the gateway to reach the beautiful beach of Ao Manao and the golf course. The only formality to be completed for non-Thai people is to sign the register in the building left after the entrance.

Accommodations in Prachuap Khiri Khan

When you book a hotel online to sleep in Prachuap Khiri Khan, make sure it is located where you want to stay. In the city or at Sam Roi Yod. Prachuap is small even if it is the capital of the province, but it has many accommodation options. You have major hotels and a few friendly guesthouses with a limited number of rooms along the seafront on Suk Road Sant. And in the surrounding streets between the station and the sea front, there are many small cheap hotels. Ao Manao, the most beautiful beach is 3 km away from the city, in the military base. There is also some accommodation there. Just like on Pin Anuson Road along Ao Noi beach. Please note that for weekends and holidays many Thais, generally from Bangkok, come to spend a few days here. It is then more difficult to find available rooms. If you are planning to stay in Prachuap Khiri Khan during those days, it is better to book in advance.

Must-visits in Prachuap Khiri Khan

Wat Thammikaram

วัดธรรมิการาม
My opinion :
built on the top of a hill, it is the first thing you will see when you arrive in Prachuap. The building itself is not very impressive but the view on the city and the bay is beautiful. The other attraction of the ascent to this temple are the monkeys that you encounter on the way to the top.

Phraya Nakhon Cave

ถำพระยานคร
My opinion :
It is the highlight of any visit to the Sam Roi Yod National Park. This beautiful cave hosts a small Royal Pavilion which is often illuminated by a ray of light coming from the opening at the top of the cave. A relaxing and very photogenic place which is also the emblem of the province.
