Khlong Wan – Prachuap Khirikhan

About Khlong Wan in Prachuap Khirikhan


If you really like to experience ‘non touristy’ areas, Klongwan is an interesting place to visit. It is mostly popular amongst Thai tourists and has far less expats or tourists than the main town of Prachuap Khirikhan. It is a traditional fishing village to the south of Prachuap. The town centre is pretty much made up of one small road. At night, there will be market stalls selling Thai food and snacks. To the northern corner of the town, down the road next to the bank, are a few famous seafood restaurants. The food is fresh and prepared in traditional styles. Head further south, to Wagor area, visitors can find an almost deserted beach front, an aquarium, a science museum, a transport museum, and a butterfly farm. However, to really see the amazing natural scenery and ‘old style’ Thailand that this area has to offer, visitors will need a motorcycle or car to explore.
