Discover Bankrut

The giant Buddha in Bangsaphan Temple

Aside from Phuket and Pattaya, Thailand has a lot more undiscovered travel destinations that are worth visiting far from the maddening hassles and dazzles of the city. Prachuap Kirikan is one of them. It is a province situated 190 kilometers south west of Bangkok. This province is one the many places often visited by local and foreigners with its beaches and mountains and surroundings endowed with natural beauty.

A long way up to the Bangsaphan Temple.

October 2010 when the whole Foreign Language Department of my school took a trip down south going here and we headed in one of Prachuapโ€™s small beach town called Bankrut. We stayed in a resort right in front of the white-sand beach and I had the chance to experience sunrise and sunset on the roof top of that cozy resort we checked in.

The view atop the cottage we stayed in.

Added to the relaxing ambiance is the superb sea food we feasted on since day one. The Bangsaphan Yai (Temple) is one of the must-see places in here where a gigantic Buddha image is built overlooking the beach and the towns nearby.

Someday, I might just come back to experience Bankrut once again.
