Not far from the house, there is a national park by the beach. Have a morning walk and check it out. It's​ about a half an hour walk. A great way to wake up. Don't​ forget you sun-oil and sunhat.

Shopping
Border markets sometimes have unusual and fascinating things for sale hence my curiousity to visit. The plants including orchids, various fruits, the wood shops, and some jewellery shops (including Burmese jade, malachite etc) are quite interesting. Saturday mornings see a greater influx of sellers from Myanmar and the market is correspondingly much busier. Quite a few ethnic Burmese wandering around... 35 km from the beach-house.

Food Scene
If you have a special evening this is the place. A bit more expensive, but not overpriced. And definitely the most "luxurious" place in the close area. But relaxed and they serve good food. But you can just go there to have a good steak with a glass of red whine.

Prachuap, or ประจวบคีรีขันธ์, is a beautiful little seaside town a little bit (in fact not far off 300km, but in Thai terms not that far) down the coast from Bangkok. It's warm, it's very friendly and it is largely left alone by non-Thai tourists. Probably best avoided if you like action-packed holidays, but if you enjoy stunning beaches, fantastic seafood and a relaxed pace of life then it's for you. If you are based in Ban Huyang, it has the benefit of being easily reachable about half an hour with car.

Arts & Culture
Back to being a tourist in Prachuap. Monkeys are everywhere in Thailand, but this town has excelled itself in terms of sheer concentration. On the northern end of Ao Prachuap, right behind the town hall, is the start of a set of 396 steps. These climb all the way up a hill called Khao Chong Krachok, at the top of which is Wat Thammikaram, the "Monkey Temple". As you climb you get to see why. Each step roughly doubles the number of monkeys in your range of vision. When we visited it was a little nervy walking on and on through the increasing monkey density; a few of them manage to make themselves seem downright threatening (to be fair though, 95% of them just really really want to hear what it sounds like when you bash two stones together in a puddle). But these don't really seem to be the steal-your-wallet-scratch-your-face monkeys you hear about in a lot of places, and in fact the locals happily feed them nuts and bananas out of bags every day. Make it to the top, and not only are you now legally authorised to ask the Prachuap tourist office for a certificate proclaiming you "Conqueror of Khao Chong Krachok", but you're treated to an incredible view. In one direction, you see down the multiple bays of the coastline around the town, and the many small islands dotted in the sea nearby. In another, miles of striking farmland finishing off in a mountain range covering the horizon. These mountains in fact conceal the Thai-Burmese border, which is only 11km away; Prachuap sits on the thinnest part of the country (not the thinnest point of the peninsular, which is a little further south).
