PRACHUAP KHIRI KHAN

Prachuap Khiri Khan is located some 281 kilometers south of Bangkok. After the old town was abandoned during the fall of Aytthaya, a new settlement was established in 1845 in the reign of King Rama IV. The province, today, is more famous for its natural charm of beaches and mountains than historical attractions. Hua Hin, its major attraction, is one of Thailand’s most popular seaside resorts among overseas visitors as well as Thais.

Prachuap Khiri Khan is now divided into 7 districts and 1 subdistrict: Amphoe Mung Prachua Khir Khan, Amphoe Bang Saphan, Amphoe Hua Hin,Amphoe Kui Bri,Amphoe Pran buri, Amphoe Tap Sakae, and King Amphoe sam Roi Yot..

LOCAL PRODUCTS
