5 reasons to visit Cha-Am.
One of Thailand’s charming beach resorts, Cha Am is laid back and mostly attracts Thai families. It’s located about 170 km from Bangkok near Hua Hin and is easily reached by road. The top of the beach is a forest of umbrellas, deckchairs and low tables and is the perfect environment to relax in. Visiting Cha Am there are a variety of activities you can enjoy, here are 6 examples of the fun you can experience;
Khao Nang Phanthurat Forest Park
For the nature lovers, there is the walk through the Khao Nang Phanthurat Forest Park where sounds of animals like langur and a variety of birds and insects keep you company.
The series of sea sculptures at Puek Tian is another must-see of Cha Am. The statues from the famous Thai story Phra Aphai Mani written by the famous Thai poet Sunthon Phu are visible in and around the sea and you can visit them during low tide.
Food Glorious Food
Whether it’s on the beach, restaurants, cafes or markets, the food in Cha Am is glorious! Selling a variety of Thai and European food, I definitely recommend visiting Cha-Am market which is located on the other side of Phetkasem Road.
Banana Boat rides are incredibly entertaining and are definitely the activity you don’t want to miss out on. Jump on an inflatable boat and have more fun than you ever imagined.
Statue of King Naresuan and Neranchararam temple
If you have time, you should definitely schedule a visit to the Statue of King Naresuan and Neranchararam temple. The statue of Naresuan is located in a little park that overlooks the sea, a few metres further along on the left-hand side of the road is Neranchararam Temple. Here you can have a look at the six-armed Buddha image with each hand covering a sensory organ signifying the cutting off, or denying of the senses.
