Information about the place where we live and teach
The province of Pranburi, where located Pak Nam Pran, lies on the coast of the Gulf of Thailand and is famous for its incredible nature and warm winds.
The most important thing about Pranburi is that this place has been chosen by the King of Thailand as his residence, so no wonder that it is very beautiful, quiet and there is a lot to do besides kitesurfing.
In short, there are really a lot of rivers, natural parks with forests, mountains, small islands and caves. So far, this place is not very common among tourists, which we are happy about, to be honest.
