Getting to know Cha Am
Situated in the province of Phetchaburi, Cha Am is a charming coastal town that has remained relatively undeveloped by Thai standards. Although a number of shops and restaurants can now be easily found, Cha Am has retained a largely local feel and perfectly balances a touch of relaxation with a few interesting evening options for those in search of a little excitement and night-time entertainment. Located on the western shores of the Gulf of Thailand, Cha Am is easily accessible from Bangkok and its beach coastline is regarded as one of the finest in the region. Due to a range of different hotels, it is possible to stay in Cha Am on any budget and the town remains a popular destination for Thai tourists too.
