This was the beach the day on April 12 or 13.

If you don't bring it, you probably won't find it here.
Wat Khao Sukim. I teaching monastery. Lots of monks.
A cable car takes you from the parking area to the top.
Or you can climb up the 300 or so stairs.

If you want to challenge the world's most powerful factions, you're going to get attacked in all sorts of ways. That's the nature - the essence - of power: it is capable of exacting a cost for defying it.--Glenn Greenwald
Nice. Weren't you heading back again sometime soon?
From where I live. This area is about the nicest and closest. I wouldn't touch the Gulf of Thailand above Ko Samet. Nice in Jantaburi.
Inside the Church of the Immaculate Conception. (As I recall.)

But since I do get over there a few times a year. Do send it sometime. I even promise not to tell Lonely Planet, which thankfully doesn't have a high opinion of the place except as an emergency stop over on the way to the Cambo border via Trat and Had Lek.
(Where I have also spent a few days. But that is another story.)
I went there to look at the EP programs. Not bad. The pay was 30k in each. Nice well behaved kids. Good staff. Lots of cheap fruit and vegetables. A Robinson' s department store.
Houses with a few bedrooms in the burbs for about 5-6k. Seemed like an OK life especially if you what to be closer to nature.
One real ass kicking club across from the lake and it rocked.
