Overview

Cha Am and Hua Hin, both closely associated with Thai royalty, and located on the sunrise side of the Thai Gulf, some 3 hours southwest of Bangkok, are essentially quiet and relaxing seaside resorts ideal for family vacations. Although merely some 25 kilometres apart, the resorts are each in neighbouring provinces, Cha Am in Phetchaburi, and Hua Hin in Prachuap Khiri Khan. Both enjoy a wealth of satellite attractions, prominent among them national parks and historic cities.

Cha Am Beach



How to get there

By Bus
Airconditioned coaches and nonairconditioned buses leave Bangkok's Southern Bus Terminal every day for the approximately 3-hour trip to Cha Am and
Hua Hin. For further details, please contact Bangkok 434-5558 (non-air) or 414-4978-9 (air).

By Rail
Several trains leave Bangkok's Hualampong Railway Station daily for Hua Hin. The trip takes approximately 4 hours depending on the type of train
(Sprinter, express, rapid, etc.)

By Air
Bangkok Airways operates a daily flight from Bangkok to Hua Hin.

Getting around

Cha Am resort is small enough to browse and walk around. Cha Am is basically a two road town. One road runs by the beach with a parallel back road with the one way system running south along the beach. Motorbike taxi's can be found on popular corners for longer trips as are pick up taxi's. No regular taxi's at present. Avoid unauthorized drivers for your safety.
Car Hire may be a more convenient way to get there and around the area . Deals from Budget Car Rentals can be made online.

What to see

Cha Am Beach
The extensive and popular beach is considered to be one of the most beautiful on the western side of the Thai Gulf.

Phra Ratchaniwet Marukkhathaiyawan
This beachside wooden palace was formerly used as a royal summer residence by King Rama VI during the 1920s. The palace is contained within the
Border Patrol Police Headquarters south of Cha-am on the road to Hua Hin.

Kaeng Krachan National Park
Thailand's largest National Park is located some 50 kilometres northwest of Cha Am. The park extends towards the Burmese border to the west, is
characterised by a topography of forested hills and mountains, and waterways, and has as a major focal point the Kaeng Krachan Dam, a 58-metre-high
and 760-metre-long structure that dominates a scenic reservoir.

Chao Samran Beach
This scenic beach, 51 kilometres north of Cha Am, is one of several popular beaches to the east of Phetchaburi provincial capital.

Khao Wang
This 92-metre hillock on the northern approach to Phetchaburi provincial capital (some 36 kilometres north of Cha Am), supports the Phra Nakhon Khiri
palace constructed in 1860 by King Rama IV (King Mongkut). Phetchaburi residents refer to it as Khao Wang, literally Palace Hill. The area is now known
as Phra Nakhon Khiri National Museum and is open to the public every day from 9.00 AM until 4.00 PM. Admission is 10 baht per person. Visitors may
walk to the hillttop complex, or ascend by cable car.

Khao Luang Cave
This picturesque cave, some 5 kilometres from Khao Wang, contains a Buddha image cast by the royal command of King Chulalongkorn to honour his
father, King Mongkut.

What to do
Cha Am is a typical Thai costal town and was founded to cater to Thai visitors. As a result of this seafood is fresh and cheap. Don't expect to be up too late on this costal resort as it closes early. Later night attractions are mainly confined to the hotels and resorts.
