Thai Adventures Await
Hit the beach, visit iconic sites, and shop local markets
From the peaceful vantage point of Prachuap Khirikhan, you can easily explore the rich culture and awe-inspiring beauty of southern Thailand’s eastern coast. Watch the kite surfers from the soft sands of Khao Kalok Beach, stroll along the boardwalk over lush mangrove trees at Pranburi Forest Park, and hike along the side of the cascading Pa La-U Waterfall. The pretty nearby beachside town of Hua Hin offers shopping, dining, and sightseeing—plus, sunning on tranquil Hua Hin Beach—while Khao Hin Lek Fai offers panoramic views from the hillside. See Maruekhathaiyawan Palace, built in the 1920s from a special teak wood as a summer residence for the royal family, or visit the Buddhist temple of Wat Hua Hin. Pick up handmade souvenirs and local eats at the lively Huan Hin Night Market, Cicada Market, and Chatchai Market or peruse big name brands at BluPort Hua Hin Mall and Market Village Hua Hin. You can also play the historic Royal Hua Hin Golf Course, sample local wines at Monsoon Valley Vineyard, and check out interactive murals, sculptures, and installations from Thai artists at For Art’s Sake.
