Prachuap Khiri Khan Travel Guide: 38 reviews and 74 photos

Monkey street

Close to 80km south of Hua Hin is the another beach town called Prachuap Khiri Khan.
There you will also find Khao Chong Krajok ( Mirror Tunnel Mountain) named after the hole through the side of the mountain that appears to reflect the sky.
At the top of the mountain is Wat Thammikaram. You can climb the 399 steps to the top and see nice views of the town and bay. Before you climb the steps you must buy some bananas from the ladies selling them, to feed the monkeys, or they won't let you pass.
