3 Must See Attractions for Pranburi Beach
Like most of coastal Thailand, Pranburi’s primary attraction is the beach.
But there is more to see for those who want to get off their beach blanket, from a lush national forest to mountainside temples.
Here are 3 things you won’t want to miss:
Khao Sam Roi Yot National Park
Khao Sam Roi Yot National Park, known as the “300 peaks”—offers exactly that: limestone crests amid lush greenery. Covering more than 100 square kilometers, the park also plays home to mangrove swamps, wetlands and a great variety of wildlife. Look for barking deer and macaques that eat crab!
Pak Nam Pran
Where the Pranburi river flows into the Gulf of Thailand, you will find Pak Nam Pran, also called the Pranburi Estuary. The estuary, which covers the land between Pranburi Forest and Pranburi Beach, is rich with mangroves. It is also home to a small fishing village and a handful of luxury resorts.
Khao Tao Temple
The Khao Tao Temple, located in nearby Khao Tao, features several huge golden Buddhas and a shrine. The temple is not subtle. It stands out. Nearby is an unspoiled fishing village where visitors can relax with a drink.
