Ao Manao, Prachuap Khiri Khan

4.6
#1 of 9 in Things to do in Prachuap Khiri Khan
Scenic and undeniably Thai, Ao Manao boasts clean sand and shallow waters against a backdrop of rising fog and lush green mountains. A former military base, the beach still retains traces from its past, including a landing strip, planes, military vehicles, armed guards, and a museum. Let the resident population of monkeys entertain you, but think twice about feeding them as they can be unpredictable. Amenities include umbrellas and chairs, and nearby restaurants dish up Thai specialties. Discover how to plan a Prachuap Khiri Khan trip in just a few steps with Inspirock's itinerary builder.
