District offices in Prachuap Khiri Khan

This year we were driving from Surat Thani to Bangkok by car, not by overnight bus or train as most other times. Especially while passing through the province Prachuap Khiri Khan, which marks the narrowest part of Thailand connecting the South with the central part, we passed several district offices since they are located directly next to the Phetkasem highway, the main road through the province.

While the southern districts of the province have their district office a bit separated from the highway - about 8 kilometer for Bang Saphan and Bang Saphan Noi and about two kilometer for Thap Sakae. In the town Prachuap Khiri Khan itself its also two kilometers from the highway, but since we stopped there anyway for eating I used the chance to complete my collection of photos of the offices in town, as well as confirm the location of the Catholic church.And of course the district office of the Mueang Prachuap Khiri Khan district was one of these offices I photographed this time.

Continuing to the north the following district offices are directly at the highway. The next one is the one of Kui Buri, located in north of the small town Kui Buri. The next one would have been Khao Sam Roi Yot, however that one I failed to spot from car, probably because it is located on the other side of the street, towards the sea. Also, there's no real settlement around the district office, so we probably passed it quite fast.

The next one is located in a town again, this time Pran Buri. Again, the district office is a bit north of the town center. Interestingly, directly next to the district office is the office of the municipality Pran Buri, a much less representative building. The final district office is in Hua Hin, but we took the bypass and not drove through the town itself. But earlier in the last vacation we were in Hua Hin, and I used the short time we spend in the town itself to take a photo of the municipal office. I could not remember the exact location of the district office, which to my shame is located directly across the street of the municipal office, but I did not notice it. So I can only show three out of the seven district office so far.
