Pak Nam Pran - Pranburi

Pak Nam Pran – “Mouth of the River Pran” in Thai, is a relatively unknown jewel in Thailand. Only 2.5hrs from Bangkok it attracts Bangkok Thais and overseas tourists looking to relax in truly beautiful surroundings. That means the beaches are not busy and there are no high rise hotels to mess up the wind. Kitesurfer’s heaven!

Add to that the warm winds, tropical sunshine, national parks at either end of the beach, and some superb local food at every price range and you have a pretty amazing place!


Ban Thai Lamket

One of the first resorts in Pranburi, and run by the very friendly owner Mr Sampas. Low key Thai style, each room has a slightly different theme. Airconditioning or fan rooms, double or twin beds. Book early for busy times. A couple of kilometers from our school but easy to rent a motorbike just outside his resort. Mr Sampas is very proud of his lovely resort, and very proud to make your stay a great one. He will put on a bbq for you if you like, and his mother and family are always happy to cook their speciality Pad Thai for you. A few kilometers from our school but it is easy to hire scooters here and great fun to ride around in the beautiful Pranburi scenery.
