About Travel to Prachuap Khiri Khan


Prachuap Khiri Khan is a small coastal town, with a population slightly under 30,000 permanent residents, located 111 km by road to the south of the more famous resort town of Hua Hin. Prachuap Khiri Khan was Thailand’s first resort town, which became for famous by visits from Thailand’s Royal Family which in turn made it fashionable with holiday makers from Bangkok. This popularity with Thai holiday makers has continued, but Prachuap Khiri Khan never really caught on with foreign holiday makers to the same extent. For this reason Prachuap Khiri Khan has never really developed into a centre for mass tourism. The town’s atmosphere is very relaxed. The restaurants and hotels are low key, great value for money, and focused towards catering for Thai visitors. The opportunity to eat seafood at affordable prices is one of Prachuap Khiri Khan’s major selling points to Thai tourists and the seafront road has lots of seafood restaurants ranging in price from what you would pay at a market stall to about the same as a mid range restaurant in Bangkok.

Besides eating competitively priced seafood whilst enjoying a view of the beach, Prachuap Khiri Khan has some pleasant places to visit inside the town itself, notably its very pretty old fashioned train station, a 360 metre long pier with a small lighthouse, and the fantastic Wat Thammikaram Worawihan, which features temple on hill with thousands of resident wild moneys. Prachuap Khiri Khan also has a good beach, Ao Manao Beach, located a few kilometres to the south of the town within the grounds of a Royal Thai Air Force base, who allow access for visitors to use the beach. Very cheap sun loungers are available for rent at Ao Manao Beach and there are also several beach side stalls selling BBQ fish and prawns.
