About Travel to Prachuap Khiri Khan
The train is a great way to travel from Pehtchaburi to Prachuap Khiri Khan. Prachuap Khiri Khan is one of Thailand’s prettiest railway stations and it’s an easy 550 walk to the town’s picturesque city centre pier. Prachuap Khiri Khan has lots of good value and good quality hotels to stay in, many with direct sea views such as the Prachuap Grand Hotel, which we recommend. Prachuap Khiri Khan also some excellent seafood restaurants on the seafront Chai Talay Road, such as Ploensamut and the inexpensive Lung Mug-Paa Lord. These seafood restaurants are one of the main draws for the Thai holiday makers who come to Prachuap Khiri Khan, and normally make up the majority of the visitors to Prachuap Khiri Khan town.
Prachuap Khiri Khan’s best known attraction is the small temple at the top of Khao Chong Krajok hill, at the northern end of the city centre. This hill top temple is part of the larger adjacent temple of Wat Thammikaram Worawihan. To reach it you need climb up 418 steps to reach an altitude of 245 metres above sea level. On the way you will encounter a large troop of macaque monkeys which are generally harmless unless you go with food, which isn’t recommended as the monkeys will swarm around you to steal it. There are many more monkeys at the hill top temple which, is fairly small but has great 360 degree views.
Prachuap Khiri Khan’s other major tourist attraction is Ao Manao Beach, 4.4 km by road to the south of Prachuap Khiri Khan Railway Station. Ao Manao Beach is part of an air force base and visitors are required to show their passport or photo ID to sign in as they enter. At the southern end of the beach is a food court and deck chairs with umbrella to rent for a very low cost. At the northern end of the beach is Khao Lommuak hill, which is steep climb with fixed ropes in place to assist you on the way (not recommended for young children). The reward for climbing the hill is panoramic views. Easier to reach is the monkey area at the base of the mountain, which is home to a troop of very cute spectacled langur monkeys.
