Lonely Planet review

Lying 18km east of Phetburi, Hat Chao Samran is one of Thailand’s oldest beach resorts, dating back to the reign of Rama VI (King Vajiravudh; r 1910–25). While the Thailand of today certainly has more appealing beaches, it’s a pleasant enough place to laze your way through a day or two, punctuating your naps with cheap seafood binges. Jaa Piak serves all manner of seafood including a mean horseshoe crab–and-egg salad (yam kài maang dah tálair) .
