Like many other days of this trip, it started without a clear itinerary. After a quick screening of the various POIs on google map and checking out on the pantip website, I left Bang Saphan (บางสะพาน) for the town of Prachuap Khiri Khan (ประจวบคีรีขันธ์).

My first stop would be at Ao Thian and it’s clear water. It is not a place to swim, as the water is full of brown and orange-ish rocks, but a beautiful picture spot.

I continued a few hundred meters further to Bo Thong Lang Beach (หาดบ่อทองหลาง). This stunning beach in located in a tiny bay surround by little hills. The water is probably the clearer I’ve seen on this coast of Thailand. I did not expect to see such a beautiful beach in Prachuap Khiri Khan. A handful of restaurant offer food to visitors. This place is definitely worth a few hours to chill there.

Then I continued my way riding along the coast following kilometers of empty white sand beaches. It’s a bit hard to conceive that most tourists coming to Thailand go to the same overloaded “beach destinations” while there are tons of empty, quiet and (often) more beautiful places they could go.

I could spot for afar my next stop, this would be the Wat Thang Sai Temple (วัดทางสาย) located on hill overlooking the gulf of Thailand. The temple is splendid and huge.

I then continued my way to a quite unique temple named Wat Ban Thung Khlet (วัดบ้านทุ่งเคล็ด). The temple, still in construction, has it’s walls full of coins as tapestry. You can even do some ‘merit’ by sticking your own coins to the walls. Near the main temple, another building has it’s walls filled with lottery tickets arranged in various patterns. I thought that the temple with the coins was interesting, but this building is even more!

My last stop was supposed to be the Huai Yang Waterfall, but it started to rain so I decided to slowly ride under the rain to my destination, Prachuap.

By the time I got there, the rain stopped and I rode to Ao Manao beach (หาดอ่าวมะนาว) to catch the sunset. Dumb me, Prachuap is on the east coast meaning no sunsets, but I got lucky that a beautiful rainbow was awaiting me

This is what I call a good day  You can check below the map with the various POIs that I visited during this day in Prachuap Khiri Khan.
