The provincial capital of Prachuap Khiri Khan is a fishing port with a superb location beside beautiful curving bays and amongst steep mountain outcrops. Prachuap Khiri Khan is an attractive alternative destination for visitors who want to avoid overcrowded resorts. The province may give travelers a greater insight into the “real” Thailand. Although the province beyond Hua Hin is not a major tourist spot, it is certainly rich in natural resources — including mountainous areas, islands, and relaxing beaches. The province also features several National Parks, including Khao Sam Roi Yot national park which features soaring peaks, numerous caves, and exotic bird lives, established to protect the largest freshwater marshes in Thailand.
