What to see in Prachuap Khiri Khan

In Prachuap Khiri Khan, it is especially the temple on a hill and its horde of monkeys that people visit before or after enjoying Ao Manao beach. But in the surrounding countryside, there are also interesting places like Sam Roi Yot about fifty kilometers in the North. Do not hesitate to go to the tourist office they are very good advice.
I also listed at the end of the page some good tours, excursions and activities that you can do in Prachuap Khiri Khan or from Prachuap Khiri Khan. Click here to see them.

Must-visits in Prachuap Khiri Khan

Wat Khao Chong Krajok

วัดเขาช่องกระจก
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 over the city and the two bays is just amazing. The other attraction of this mountain are the monkeys living there.

Khao Sam Roi Yod National Park

เขาสามร้อยยอด
My opinion :
Located at the edge of the sea with numerous caves including the very photogenic Phraya Nakhon Cave with its little royal pavilion lighted by a ray of sun comming from the opening at the top. The park is about sixty kilometers from Hua Hin and Prachuap Khiri Khan, thirty from Pranburi and a dozen kilometers from Kuiburi. There are a few accommodation options in the park.

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.

Ao Noi

อ่าวน้อย
My opinion :
in the North, the beach is less pleasant but if you continue on the road you will come to a beach with fishing boats and on the right a little path in the mountain that takes you to a charming temple in a cave.

Walking Street

ถนนคนเดิน
My opinion :
This pop-up night market that is only held a few days per week on a portion of Prachuap Khiri Khan city's seaside road is pleasant and the perfect place to experience Thai street food in all its diversity.
