A good builder in Bang Saphan?

Hi,

Does anyone know a decent house builder to construct a ~120 sqm two-story home in Bang Saphan? Apologies for asking many questions at the forum.

Teacher of the Thai language in BS?

Hi,

This may be a strange question but...do you know if there is a teacher in Thai in Bang Saphan or nearby? I am interested in building a house in BS and would like to study some Thai as well. I know there are schools in Hua Hin but would rather avoid the travel back and forth if possible.

Bang Saphan Yai, most likely located on the map inserted by "bajm" above. That should narrow it down sufficiently.

Re: Bangsaphan beach land price guide

Talked to someone who claimed there is some sort of gasoline/petrol production facility on the hill some 800m from the beach. If true, obviously a concern for anyone who might buy land near it. Anyone who knows anything about this?

Re: Bangsaphan beach land price guide

Very nice post, especially since I am going over to BS tomorrow to take a look. On the matter of practicalities. Is it common in Thailand to bring in a third party, like a bank, broker or lawyer when making a land purchase/sale? I remember that when selling a condo at one point in time in a Western ...

Internet in Bang Saphan?

Sitting in a rented house in Hua Hin with a DSL connection - "Max 3BB". Actually, pleasantly surprised how good it is. I ran a test and can receive at 9.9 MBit/s and send at 0.3 Mbit/s. Could I get a similar DSL connection in Bang Saphan? What is the best internet available?

Re: Finding a plot of land in Bang Saphan

Do you have any suggestion on how to find a piece of land to buy? Sent a message to the Bangsaphan guide a few days ago but so far have not heard from them. No disrespect to them and their prices seem fair, but my experience is also that whenever you find sth on the net directed to farang, there ar...

Finding a plot of land in Bang Saphan

Hi you all, I'm looking for a small plot of land near the beach and somewhere quiet in Thailand to build a house and hopefully spend at least a few months per year there. Figured Bang Saphan might be it (or what do you say?). I have been to Hua Hin a few times and like that it is not too far from Ba...
