Re: Why is nobody posting on the forum?

I'm interested in knowing how the place 1st attracted farangs - are they all ex-Huahinians fed up with life there, or are there are other reasons they came, or is it all for the same idyll? To me, in my short sojourn there, the attraction is obvious, but there are always those with a vision, a busin...

Re: Bangsaphan's first property development planned

Bad, unless a landowner looking to make a buck! And that sure looks expensive, albeit very cramped. BS is a long way from anywhere - it will be interesting to see what interest it generates?

Re: New Tesco Lotus store for Bangsaphan

There's a small Tescos in Prachuap - in the UK it would be of the Tesco Express type (like a very large 7/11)

Re: New Tesco Lotus store for Bangsaphan

Surely it will be built in proportion to the size of the projected size and type of shopper it will attract, just as in the UK? Can't imagine it being as big as Tescos in Pranburi or the Carrefour in Chumphon (is it still called that)? And the latter, when I was there, had little for the farang? Wha...

Re: Beach cleaners wanted!

I have photos from January 2010 of folk cleaning the beach from north of the fishing pier heading on to Ban Krut. They weren't school kids or from any other obviously identified organisation, just seemed the local community? They were out en mass as evident from some distance - I was heading south a...

Re: Greetings from Sweden (...and also a bunch of questions)

Hi Robert, the markets are in town, so you would need a bike (not recommended at night) or car/pick up.

As for why not, well there are three small beach bars a 2/300 metres apart? nice enough bar at Sunrise, but not much company!

Re: Greetings from Sweden (...and also a bunch of questions)

Thinking about it, the walk may have been a bit longer - I was told its just under 2km, but I really wasn't counting! Here's a photo from near Sunrise and although its reduced in size you should just be able to make out a little yellow boat and volleyball net centre left - they are directly in front...

Re: Greetings from Sweden (...and also a bunch of questions)

Sunrise Resort seems lovely! Really in our taste, perhaps a bit too posh. The downside is that it's a bit off. I spent 6 weeks at Sunrise over Christmas and posh it ain't! Its endearingly eccentric as are the owners (mildly), Franco and Ya(?). Brekky was a bit samey for a long stay, which is why I ...

Re: What's the shopping supplies deal?

And in the other direction is a Carrefour and Makro on the road heading into Chumphon, from the Petchkasem Road.

There is a small 'supermarket' in the town that sells some western bits and bobs, as well as some wine.

Re: Good Thai food in Bangsaphan

For a Thai BBQ, the one on the left heading out of town not too far past the hospital, great value and always busy. I sometimes wondered what was wrong with the two on the other side of the road, as they were always empty when we were there?

Sangiun resort

Okay, following on from the questions raised about Suan Luang Beach Resort in the GK location/map thread, it wasn't hard to find something on the net (travelfish review) about that place and I realised I knew where it was, but didn't know the name and now know the best room to hire! There's also som...

Re: Gk's Opening Night

Hope it works for you M&M and I look forward to trying the new place out! Hope the brekky menu is still intact?

With luck, may get back for Christmas, but, but, but........
