Cha-Am – Sandy Beaches South of Bangkok
The Beaches of Cha-Am is probably one of the chillest beaches closest to Bangkok. 2.5 hours drive away from Bangkok and situated north from the more bustling beaches of the seaside resort city of Huahin, Cha-Am provides a much more relaxing atmosphere while not being too far away from town. I definitely like it here a lot more if I don’t want to travel too far south for nice beaches. It is often said that sandy beaches south of Bangkok starts from Cha-am onward. The beaches here is also a lot cleaner than the Pattaya area of the eastern side of the gulf of Thailand. This is why I often go to Cha-am for a quick escape.
