Cha-am (ชะอำ) is a resort town on the Gulf of Thailand, 25 km north of Hua Hin.
Cha-am Forest ParkA small nature preserve as parks go, but it's still worth seeing. All-terrain vehicles are available for guided tours of the park, with rental costing 500 baht for half an hour and 900 baht per hour. There is a restaurant in the park.
Eurasia Cha-am LagoonA resort and residential community. It boasts two free-form pools overlooking the gulf. It is free to the public and open 24 hours a day. A terrace restaurant serves Thai food for 100-300 baht. This place is seldom crowded so it's a good place to hang out and take a dip.
Phrarachanivet MrigadayavanWas built in 1922 for the king and members of his royal household. Open to the public as it is no longer used by royalty. It is a group of teak houses on stilts and a maze of walkways connect them. The rooms are airy and the walkways are raised. There isn't much information available in English, so you may want to hire an English-speaking guide for the tour.
Soi Bus StationThe street houses a former bus station, hence the name of this otherwise unnamed street. Lodgings and about 15-20 beer bars staffed by hostesses can be found here. Good area to enjoy a beer and a game of pool.
