If you are looking for authentic travel in Thailand, there is a quiet little town right at the ocean, with a long stretch of golden sandy beaches and a gorgeous backdrop of limestone mountains. Tourism has not taken over yet, so life remains pretty much the way it used to be.
You still see fishermen bringing their catch in and drying it on the beach. Many coconut groves make this place additionally beautiful. The nearby National Park is truly amazing - people can discover stunning caves, hidden beaches, islands they can kayak too, and a quite astonishing wild life. (by GeoVenture)
