Things To Do In Cha Am: Magnificent Sights And Activities

Escape Bangkok and experience the beauty of Cha Am for a day or two. How about experiencing Greece in Asia? Find out what are the best things to do in Cha Am!

Cha-Am is close to Bangkok and Hua Hin, and is a district in Phetchaburi province. It allures people with stretches of pristine white beaches and its many grand palaces. Some choose to be in touch with nature by riding on horses, biking or mangrove forest trekking, while others just want some fun in the sun and water. The unmissable attraction is Santorini Park Cha Am, which can also be done if you are travelling to Hua Hin, for a slice of the Greek paradise.

WHAT TO SEE

Cha-Am’s long sandy beach is the town’s biggest attraction, but you can savour that as a backdrop to the whole day’s setting. First, you may want to visit the Santorini Park – an amusement playground set in a replicated Santorini atmosphere. After you’ve had enough fun, go visit the once-upon-a-time holiday home of King Rama VI, also known as the Mrigadayavan Palace. When it’s close to sunset but not yet, make your way to the Nayang Bat Cave. Try to get there before 6 and get ready to witness thousands of bats flying out of the cave. Truly a sight to behold! After that magnificent sight, you can still make it to the Railway Station Market. What used to be a train track is now transformed into an open-air flea market where you can soak up the authentic local market atmosphere.

HOW TO GET THERE

Just over a two-hour drive away, it won’t be hard to drive down south. You can also easily get taxis or minivans to chauffeur you for the trip. Trains are safe and cheap but there are only two departures a day from Hualamphong station in Bangkok and they are not always on time. Buses operate from Suvarnabhumi International to Hua Hin and stops in Cha-am, departing every 30 min.
