Cha-Am: additional information for tourists
Information for tourists
Tourist information in Cha-Am is quite poor, and you have to rely on hotels and travel agencies rather than official information points. This is one of the reason why we opened this website, so you can also rely on onlychaam.com!
As far as we know there are two official information points for tourists. One is the TAT (Tourism Authority of Thailand) office, but it is about 1 km far from central Cha-Am in the direction of Hua Hin (on the right side of the road), and you won't find much information there, except a few brochures. But the staff is welcoming and they speak English.
The other information point is the police station located at the end of Narathip road, just between North Cha-Am and South Cha-Am. It is supposed to be an information point for tourists, but it is in fact a police station and there is no sign in English, so you don't feel like going in there and ask for advice concerning a hotel or a restaurant. You can find a city map there, though, as well as a small brochure with the main attractions in and around Cha-Am.
There is also a special telephone number for "Tourist Information Inquiry", which is 1672.
Several travel agencies can be found along the beachfront, and hotels and guesthouses also propose tours and excursions.
