Prachuap Khiri Khan

A quiet seaside town, Prachuap Khiri Khan (ประจวบคีรีขันธ์) is a delightfully relaxed place; the antithesis of Hua Hin. The broad bay is a tropical turquoise punctuated by bobbing fishing boats and overlooked by honeycombed limestone mountains – scenery that you usually have to travel to the southern Andaman to find.

In recent years, foreigners have discovered Prachuap's charms and some Bangkokians drive past Hua Hin for their weekends away. But their numbers are still very small compared to better-known destinations, leaving plenty of room on the beaches, at the hilltop temples and in the many excellent seafood restaurants.
