Day 8 – Ban Krut to Prachuap Khiri Khan – 70km

Today was set to be a recovery day for me, I only had to ride 70km. Seeing it was such a short distance I didn’t have to check out of my room until 12pm. I made full use of my lovely room and air on

I arrived in Prachuap Khiri Khan around 2:30pm and found the Yuttichai hotel. The reviews put the hotel as affordable, when I checked in I had the option of 2 types of rooms, a shared bathroom for 160baht or a room with its own bathroom for 250baht. I opted for my own bathroom. The room was clean, but the bed was not comfortable.

After a shower I decided to head out and explore what Prachuap Khiri Khan has to offer.

On the way down I stopped for a drink at a restaurant along the beach front, I popped in there again to say hello.

Went to temple with naughty monkeys, great views

Next I headed off to the beach via the Navy Base

On the way back from the beach I met a Spanish / American married couple cycling back from the beach.

They joined me for a fruit shake at the night market (it was still daytime), we chatted about each other’s travels and swopped tips.

I went back to my hotel to drop off my bike

Then I decided to grab full dinner and another fruit shake at the night market

I headed off to bed
