About travel to Cha Am

Cha Am is a lesser known holiday destination located 30 km to the north of Hua Hin. Cha Am gets busy at the weekends with mostly Thai visitors from Bangkok, but not so many foreign visitors come to Cha Am and during the weekdays the town feels much quieter and more relaxed than major tourist destinations such as Phuket or Koh Samui which are typical very busy all year round.

Cha Am Town

The most built up pat of Cha Am is near the train station. The train station is located within a small town with a lively fresh food market, shops, restaurants and major supermarkets such as Lotus’s and Makro. Approximately 2 km to the east is Cha Am Beach.

Cha Am Beach

Cha Am Beach is a relatively narrow strip of white sand which stretches 10 km down the coastline. In calm weather it’s safe to swim in the water off the beach. The most popular part of the beach is the area close to where the main access road from Cha Am town (Narathip Road) reaches the beach. This area has lots of covered sun loungers and vendors selling seafood and in this respect is similar to the busier parts of Pattaya Beach. Once you leave this area of the beach, however, it’s most completely deserted except for the areas immediately in front of the large resorts spread out at intervals along the entire length of the beach.
