Prachuap Khiri Khan Province
Prachuap Khiri Khan is loaned some 281 kilometers south of Bangkok. After the old town was abandoned during the fall of Ayutthaya a new settlement was established in 1845 in the reign of King Rama IV.
The province, today, is more famous for its natural charm of beaches and mountains than historical attractions. Hua Hin, its major attraction, is one of Thailand’s most popular seaside resorts among overseas visitors as well as Thais.
Prachuap Khirikhan City & Ao Manao beach. Prachuap Khirikhan City, located in the province called Prachuap Khirikhan, is a lovely picturesque and surprising small city. Nestled between hills, the main part of the city is very quaint and a really great place to go to relax for a day.
There is not much activity in the City itself however having a coffee by the seaside boardwalk overlooking two mountains gets you into the Sabai Sabai atmosphere and out of the hustle and bustle.
