Welcome to the wonderful town called Khanom
Unlike most of the big tourist cities in Thailand is a quiet beach town yet packed with so many goodies
From the best Italian restaurant (Jira Italian Food) to Pink Dolphin tours.
With 5 waterfalls (visit KhanomYoga.com to see images of the waterfalls and locations) in the area and the most gorgeous beach drive from Khanom to the next bigger town called Sichon, Khanom is an unknown secret that is beginning to get out.
With 3 ancient temple caves and 1 large walk through cave, Sichon is also home to Thailand most talked about wishing temple called Wat Ai Kai.
