Pranburi is a sleepy seaside resort south of Hua Hin near the entrance to Khao
Sam Roi Yot National Park.
An intriguing side trip can be made to Ban Khun Tanot, a traditional Thai
fishing village that exists where nature refuses to survive. Khun Tanot lies in
a bizarre decomposed marsh of sculpted clay, eerie black birds, and thousands of
charred trees that stand like forgotten skeletons in a life less land. The
surrealistic scene may jog your memory: the Killing Fields in the war movie of
the same title.
