Prachuap Khiri Khan

Prachuap Khiri Khan is a town in southern Thailand. It is the capital of Prachuap Khiri Khan province and is on the coast at one of the narrowest stretches in Thailand, only 10 km from the Burmese border at Dansingkhorn. The town can reached from Bangkok by train from Hualampong Station or by bus from the Southern Bus terminal. The area has large pineapple and coconut industries, in addition to being popular with Thai tourists.

Prachuap Khiri Khan is home to a Royal Thai Air Force base, and was an invasion point for Japanese troops on December 8, 1941, during World War II. An annual memorial is held each December to honour the 38 Thai airmen and civilians who died fighting against the Japanese 143rd Infantry Regiment in the Battle of Prachuab Khirikhan.
