General info please
I've just seen a really good deal to Cha-am. I have been to Thailand before but just Bangkok and Koh Samui. What's Cha-am like? I'll be going with my fiance, we enjoy chilling out on nice peaceful beaches, snorkelling as well as exploring the local area by car or foot.
Can anyone give me any info on Cha-am? Is it important to stay in a particular area? Also, is there a good time of year to go?
Thank you so much... Sally x

RE: General info please
Cha Am is quiet except at weekends, which hotel are you thinking of? Most people who stay in Cha Am head into Hua Hin ( about 15 minutes ) at night for street markets, shopping, restaurants, bars and discos etc.
There is no snorkeling in the area at all, nearest is Bang saphan and Koh Tao island about 2 and a half hours south but day trips available, I would look at Hua hin area, my favorite is Takiab Bay if you like to realx on the beach on a lounger with a cool drink. But do appreciate Cha Am and Hua Hin although great are not lively touristy / nightlife places like Chaweng!

Travel Tips for Cha-am
It may look like there's not a lot going on in Cha am but you can still have a good time if you put your mind to it. I recommend starting early to watch the sunrise then maybe getting on a 3 or 4 person bicycle for the rest of the day. Chances are there will be Thai families who will want to race you and/or laugh at you. Either way be careful, they tend to pack 6 people onto those 4 person bikes so they have some extra horsepower. You may also want to spend the night hanging out on a beach that is close to either 7-11 or Family Mart so your beer will never be cold.
Cha am is worth a visit if you have some time and want to avoid the touristy alternatives.
