Continued from the entry Thailand – Laos: Day 2 – Part 4 – Salma Restaurant and Trip to Prachuap Khiri Khan. For pre-travel, please refer here.
Date: 30 Disember 2016
Location: Prachuap Khiri Khan, Thailand
Starting from this post, I will define Prachuap Khiri Khan as “PKK”. Do not be confused with Prachuap Khiri Khan Town and Prachuap Khiri Khan Province. PKK town is the capital of PKK Province. The popular Hua Hin town is one of the areas under the PKK Province.
The PKK town placed the headquarters of the Royal Thai Air Force and was the gateway to the Japanese occupation of the Japanese on December 8, 1941, during World War II (The Battle of Prachuap Khiri Khan). Remembrance Day is held annually in December to commemorate 38 Thai air force and civilians who were killed during the opposition to the 143rd Japanese infantry regime.
