Have you heard about Cha Am being called as the Greece of Asia? Cha Am is a place that has lots to offer and that is what we will be talking to you about for the rest of this article so you have to read on.

Since Cha Am is pertained to as the Greece in Asia, you can expect to take a glimpse on what a Greek paradise is with its Santorini Park.
It has been said that the district’s biggest attraction is its long sandy beach, however, you can still savor it as a backdrop to the entire day’s setting. We have already mentioned above how you should visit Santorini Park, an amusement park that is set in a replicated version of Greece’s Santorini. In the event that you have seen everything that the Santorini Park has to offer, we highly recommend you visiting the Mrigadayavan Palace, the once-upon-a-time holiday home of King Rama the sixth and his family. If the sun is about to close, yet you can still see the light from the sun, it would be best for you to make your way to the Nayang Bat Cave. You have to arrive in the said place on or before six pm so that you can witness thousands of bats flying around the cave. Indeed, the sight of this is truly exceptional and fantastic. Once you have witnessed such a magnificent sight, it is now time for you to make your way towards the Railway Station Market. It has been said that the Railway Station Market used to be a train track, however, with the transformation it has been through, it now becomes an open-air flea market in which you can soak up the authentic local market atmosphere.
Apart from the attractions we mentioned above, there are still more that you should know of like Puek-Tian. Puek-Tian is known for being a small beach resort town that lies eighteen kilometers north of Cha Am.
