📍Bang Krut, Thailand
Bang Krut, it is located on the coast of the Andaman Sea, two hours south of Bangkok through Hua Hin district. With white sand beaches, green plains and mountain ranges, there are few places in Thailand that are so alluring. A long stretch of beach which is wonderful and its connects Bang Saphan & Bang Krut.
The charming resorts decorated with coconut plantations along the coast as well as wooden houses made in local style will really add to your enjoyment. It is an ideal peaceful place for tourists who love nature & solitude and filling nature. Since nothing is developed here on a commercial basis, you will get a full taste of rural Thailand. And the hospitality of the local people is unmatched.
White sand beach, where the vast waters of the sea and lush greenery mix with it. You could easily spend two days taking in this beauty. Apart from this, there are also two Thai Buddhist temples here. Situated on top of two hills, whenever you go up you have a view of the whole area and the sea. The mesmerizing beauty of nature at sunrise, sunset or rain will mesmerize you.
If you’re interested in learning how coconut oil is made, visit a nearby plantation factory. Yes, you have to take permission. If you are a bit more adventurous you can talk to local fishermen and join them on a night saltwater fishing trip.
It will be a unique & memorable experience for anyone. And secondly, even though there are countless coconut trees here, we didn’t see anyone selling dab, so you should talk to the owner of the resort and if he agrees, he’ll give you something like da and Will ask you to bite. Pat yourself and eat it. Note that many coconut trees in these gardens will hold the can within reach so you don’t have to climb the tree.
You can cut a cane from a tree while standing on the ground. Bang Krut is more then advanced from Bang Saphan. The restaurant or resort facilities in Bang Kraut are relatively good. Bang Krut is needs 30mins drive from Bang Saphan.

Thinking of Living?
Reach near the beach and keep walking on the road, you will see one resort after another lined with coconut plantations along the way. These are not really big resorts, but are rented out by planters locally. Most types of cottages are made of wood but all modern facilities (cold hot water air condition etc.) are available. Depending on the size and facilities of the cottages, the rate per night will be between 500 to 1000 Thai Baht.
Eating and drinking
There is no need to worry about the shortage of food. Along the beach you will find seafood restaurants that prepare and serve fresh food to you immediately after your order. Some of them will even arrange for you to have lunch or dinner sitting on the sand of the beach at no extra charge. If you don’t want to eat seafood, you will find Thai food restaurants nearby as well as a variety of food prepared by the locals. And there is a Seven Eleven shop.
