Tourism in Prachuap Khiri Khan
Prachuap Khiri Khan is a narrow town with around 30,000 permanent residents spread out along the coast. Prachuap Khiri Khan is very much a holiday town, however, it’s much more low key than Hua Hin and far from overdeveloped. Most the tourists who come to Prachuap Khiri Khan are Thai people, either travelling down ffrom Bangkok for a short break or stopping over during the long road journey between the Malay border and the Central Region of Bangkok. Fairly small number of foreign visitors come to Prachuap Khiri Khan, although the town is gaining in popularity as a longer stay destination for older European visitors. Prachuap Khiri Khan is relatively inexpensive and it doesn’t have the same type of nightlife you find with destinations such as Pattaya and Koh Samui, nor the associated social problems that come with it.
Seafood in Prachuap Khiri Khan
Prachuap Khiri Khan itself doesn’t have a beach, although it does have a very pleasant seafront promenade and the Saran Withi Bridge, which is actually a long pier built as a tourist attraction. The focal point of Prachuap Khiri Khan Town is the seafront Chai Talay Road, which features lots of seafood restaurants. Some of the restaurants have formal dining spaces inside, but many are less formal with outdoor seating and a view towards the sea. The less formal restaurants are relatively cheap and serve excellent food, and this is one the major selling points for many of the Thai tourists who visit Prachuap Khiri Khan.
In terms of tourist attractions, the most notable place to visit in Phrachuap Khiri Khan Town is the hilltop temple at Wat Thammikaram Worawihan, which located at the northern end of the town centre. To reach the hilltop temple you need to climb 418 steps to the top of Khao Chong Krajok Hill. On route visitors will pass by hundreds of wild macaque monkeys which are not dangerous if left undisturbed. Don’t bring any kind of food with you as the monkeys will smell it and try to steal the food from you. The reward or walking up lots of steps, and around large number of wild monkeys, is a panoramic view from the temple at the top.
