Overview of Prachuap Khiri Khan Province
Prachuap Khiri Khan is an up and coming mountainous-coastal province in Western Thailand.
(Though considered a unique region in its own respect, the West Thailand ‘sub region’ is sometimes officially counted as part of Central Thailand, and other times as part of Southern, depending on the context.)
Prachuap Khiri Khan Province borders Phetchaburi Province on its north and Chumphon Province on its south, with a 224.8 kilometer-long Gulf of Thailand coastline on its west side, and a similar-length north-to-south-stretch of international border on its west side with the Myeik District of Myanmar’s Tanintharyi Region.
Both sides of the Thailand-Myanmar border in this part of the peninsular isthmus are abundant with lush rain-forests, fertile plantations and hilly tropical terrain of the Tenasserim Hills (also known as the Tenasserim Mountain Range).
