Cha Am

Cha Am (Thai ชะอำ) is a district (Amphoe) in the southern part of Phetchaburi province, central Thailand.

The district was established in 1897 in the name of Na Yang. In 1914 the center of the district was moved to Ban Nong Chok (now in Tha Yang district) and changed the name to Nong Chok district. After World War II, the government moved the office to Tambon Cha Am and also changed the district name to be Cha Am.
