Cha-am is a small town, about 175 km south of Bangkok, and about 30 km north of Hua Hin.
Cha-am actually consists of two parts, the village of Cha-am itself which is located about
two kilometers from the coast, and Cha-am Beach, which is on the coast.
We are talking about Cha-am Beach.
Cha-am Beach is made up of a boulevard, a few kilometers long, which begins at the harbor,
and then continues to the south.
Behind, inland, is a second road, little streets connecting the boulevard and the second
Cha-am Beach is truly a Thai beach resort and it is busy mainly at the weekend, there are many visitors from Bangkok.
Along the boulevard and in the little streets there are many restaurants and eateries. Nightlife like in Pattaya, don't expect that here.
Cha-am is easy to reach. From Bangkok by bus or train, it takes two to three hours traveling. By car it takes two hours on good highways.

We tell what we have done and experienced during a trip and we also tell what we think about it; no more and no less.
This is not a travel guide, nor is it advice to visit a place or not.
There are other sites for that.
Our opinion about places where we have eaten, drunk or slept is not intended as a (positive or negative) assessment, there are other sites for that.
It is our view of the situation at a certain moment and that view is influenced by our mood, the weather and many other factors.
