Prachuap Khiri Khan

Was much longer then expected in Bangkok as it was raining in southern Thailand constantly (and same friends showed up unexpectedly) and went finaly by bus, leaving from the southern bus terminal for 200 Baht and taking 4,5 to 5 hours, to Prachuap Khiri Khan. This bus left in 11am Bangkok and had the last stop in the town center close to the night market and the Yutichai hotel (there are more buses to further south which will stop at the main highway next to the Metro supermarket 2 to 3 kilometer from the center), the bus back leaves at 9 am. Minibuses are a little faster and 220 Baht. Local trains to Thonburi station (from there to Khao San area by ferry 15 Baht) take about 7 hours but only 56 Baht. A day time train from the Hualamphong station takes 5 or more  hours from 168 Baht depending on train and class. 

The closest nice beach is a few kilometres south (you have to cross a military airport and might need your passport at the gate), by motorcycle taxi maybe 50 Baht, or rent a bicycle for 50 Baht or a motorcycle for  maybe 100.

There are several good and reasonable seafood restaurants, a night market, a Friday and Saturday market close to the pier, a market every second weekday close to the train station and there is also a market at the Myanmar border 20 kilometer to the west (this border is for the time being closed for foreigners but might open soon?). 

Was staying there at the Yutichai Hotel.
