Where is Cha-am? It is located in Phetchaburi Province, 170 kilometers south of Bangkok and 25 kilometers from Hua Hin. Looking at our map of Cha-am it sits on a lovely beach along the east coast of The Gulf of Thailand. It sees less foreign tourists than Hua Hin, Thailand's royal town and home of His Majesty the King, but can become a little crowded over public holidays and some weekends since it is a favourite escape for Thais from Bangkok. It offers great beachfront hotels, golf resorts, great golf courses, and is popular with those who require a peaceful stay without too much hindrances, yet within easy reach of Hua Hin.
