Things to see and do

  • Khao Chong Krachok
    3.5 stars

    Situated on a hill at the northern end of town, this monkey infested hilltop wat offers great views of the coastline to the north and south. At the top of the 395 steps is Wat Thamikaran, a revered monastery housing a Buddha footprint. The monastery forms part of Wat Thamikaran, sometimes known as ... read more

  • Ao Manao
    4 stars

    With its attractive beach lined with cool, shady trees and umbrellas, Ao Manao embodies what the resort beaches to the north would like to be when they grow up. At the same time, it has more of the feeling of a national park than a beach resort, no doubt because it's located on a airforce base, the ... read more

  • Khao Lommuak
    4.5 stars

    This rugged limestone peak is at the southern end of Prachuap Khiri Khan, just on the far side of the airforce base, and is the highest peak in the immediate area.

Huay Yang waterfall is a seven-tier fall and bathing pools are on each level. The pools are packed with small fish like perch, so don't worry if ... read more

  • Darn Singkorn
    3 stars

    Ban Darn Singkorn is the closest border crossing between Prachuap Khiri Khan and Burma, though it remains closed to foreigners -- even for those just wanting to do a border run. It's worth a ride up to if you have time on your hands, want to pick up some Burmese cigarettes or just to enjoy what is ... read more

  • Ao Khan Kadai
    3 stars

    Ao Khan Kadai is the next bay north from Ao Noi (which itself is north of Prachuap Khiri Khan) and on the headland separating Ao Noi and Ao Khan Kadai is Wat Ao Noi (previously known as Wat Tham Khan Kadai).
