What places to visit in Prachuap Khiri Khan?

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-visit places in Prachuap Khiri Khan


Wat Khao Chong Krajok

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

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

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

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

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.

Kuiburi national park

My opinion :
This thai national park, which is home to many animal species in lush nature with a few waterfalls, is the place where you are most likely to see wild elephants in Thailand ! There are more than 300 elephants in the park and tours offered by the park rangers give you a good chance of seing them.

Khan Kra Dai Cave

Khan Kra Dai Cave

starstarstar The place is actually home to two caves. The most famous one is accessed by a path of steps in the mountains alongside the sea. It houses two reclining Buddha images. It's the whole bike ride to come here with the nearby Wat Ao Noi, the beach and even the fishing port that is really nice.
Sai Cave
