Holiday Inn Resort, Regent Beach - Destination Info
Check out the Statue of King Naresuan who reigned from 1590 to 1605, and used Cha-Am as a meeting place before going to war against the Burmese in 1593. You can see his statue in a small park overlooking the sea. There are hundreds of cockerels at the base of the statue, these represent King Naresuan’s hobby of cockfighting.
The Neranchararam temple is a few metres on from the king’s statue. There you can admire a six-armed Buddha image, with the hands closing all channels of the body, showing the cutting off of passion!
SaphanHin "walking street" is a long pier built on the sea where people go there to fish, take a walk before the sunset, or ride a bicycle. This is Cha Am’s most recent tourist attraction, completed in 2011.
The Khao Nang Phanthurat National Park is a limestone mountain with many caves. There is a large garden at the entrance, and you can follow the trail, climbing up the mountain to discover the caves and enjoy the lovely coastal views.
Wat Cha-Am is a temple located west of Cha-Am, with a cave on a small hill. The image of Buddha inside the temple was built in the period of Ayutthaya.
