If flying across the waves at breakneck speed seems a little hair-raising for a holiday, there are less intense ways of getting a workout in Pak Nam Pran while enjoying the surroundings. The quiet roads, pretty temples, stunning limestone hills and sleepy pineapple plantations all help make for a charming cycle ride. Make sure to stop by the quaint Wang Phong train station, a mini version of the one at Hua Hin, and grab a drink or snack from the lovely couple who run the small stall outside. Alternatively, you can head past Khao Kalok to check out Wat Summanawas, also known as the dog temple because it acts as a refuge for the stray pooches that call this area home.
You can start your ride along the beach front and through the village to visit the local school and chat with local children. From here you will ride to a fishing village to see how dried squid is made, which is a popular delicacy famous in the Pranburi area. You can enjoy delicious seafood at a local beachfront restaurant. You can ride past the fishing boats and head toward the pineapple fields, or you can ride into the city of Pranburi and then back to the countryside.
Setting off for a bit of quad biking or ATV driving (All Terrain Vehicles) will have you just itching to head up sand dunes, through water splashes and onto the dirt trails in the countryside.
Quad biking is a great low-cost experience which is very popular with groups as well as individuals. Whether you want to have an easy way to go up and down the beach or you want to go exploring, quad biking is one of the more enjoyable choices of adventure seeking for the whole family.
