Take a tour to Sam Roi Yot National Park (buy at your hotel’s reception). Your English speaking guide will pick you up and drive you to the beautiful national park of Sam Roi Yot, some
63 kilometres south of Hua Hin. Your journey will start at a pineaple plantation, then continues to a coconut farm where you will see a trained monkey picking coconuts from palms.
You will then drive to Bang-Pu fishing village from where a boat awaits to take you out to the open sea. After 20 minutes you will reach a beautiful stretch of beach below Tham Phraya Nakhon Cave. The cave has a gaping through which a shaft of light reaches and permits the growth of various kinds of plants. Phra Thi Nang Khuka Kharuhat, a Thai style pavilion, provides the most attractive view to the cave and has become the symbol of Prachuap Khiri Khan. It is a four-porched building first constructed in Bangkok in 1890 during the reign of King Rama V, then dismantled and moved to the cave where it was reconstructed. Its gable tops were raised by the King himself.
After this visit, refresh in the sea and enjoy a traditional one dish lunch at the National Park beach restaurant. You will be back to your hotel around 14.00.
