Exploring the Western Seaboard

Posted By : chauthihoaithuong/ 5 0

This long, narrow coastal strip, backed by mountains along the Burmese border, stretches from the cultural center of Phetchaburi to the commercial town of Surat Thani. In the north is one of Thailand’s oldest beach resorts, Hua Hin, while farther north still is the modern resort of Cha-am. The area also offers natural beauty inland in the huge, hilly Kaeng Krachan National Park and the limestone outcrops of the coastal Khao Sam Roi Yot National Park. The islands of the stunning Ko Samui archipelago are the major attractions farther south. Ko Samui itself is the main resort island, while Ko Tao and Ko Pha Ngan are popular with backpackers. For spectacular, unspoiled island scenery, it is hard to beat the beautiful Angthong National Marine Park.
