Prachuap Khiri Khan is not as popular with foreign tourists as Hua Hin or Pattaya, but is a well known destination for Thai holidaymakers many of whom come for weekends breaks to escape the stifling heat and pollution of Bangkok. Prachuap Khiri Khan’s major selling point is its relaxed atmosphere. The town centre is right on the seafront with a charming pier which you walk on with a miniature lighthouse. The main seafront road has lots of value for money seafood restaurants which attract large groups of Thai people on short breaks to the town. The town also has some very good inexpensive hotels, such as the Prachuap Grand Hotel.
