Re: Bangsaphan Coronavirus/Covid-19 updates

Prachuap province has now introduced fines for not wearing a mask outside - Hua Hin's police will be happy!

Re: Status of various things in Bangsaphan

BS is largely unaffected at the moment - its life as normal. We have a smaller population so no panic buying and Chinese tourists never came here!

Re: Ban Krut to Bang Saphan at 7:00 A.M.

A regular taxi would be your best option. Boat trips go from bangsaphan noi, you need to book the day before by calling Suchart Tours.

Re: Seeking advice on living in Bangsaphan

Ok, there are plenty of those, including a local one in Suan Luang where the kids spend an inordinate amount of time marching around banging drums so don't expect much in the way of educational standards!

Re: Seeking advice on living in Bangsaphan

Welcome to the forum Bill. There is a bilingual school in BS Yai town, fees are around 20k per term for the English Program. There is a better one in Thapsake about 45 minutes north. Plenty of rentals around, near the beach you're looking at 10-12k per month, up on the main road or in town around ha...

Re: Deadsville, Bangsaphan

Never really understood the Chinese, they don't 'do' beaches, waterfalls, mountains and nature and largely come here for the shopping which is mostly shite that is made in China anyway. Surely Thailand can't be cheaper to buy crap than it is where they come from?

Re: Deadsville, Bangsaphan

Yeah I hear CM has been hit really hard as it is so reliant on the Chinese. We dont get them here in BS so no impact seen.

Things have picked up a fair bit and February is living up to its tradition as the busiest month of the year.

Re: Deadsville, Bangsaphan

Looks like the "high season" has come and gone already, we blinked and missed it. Most beach resorts running at around 30% occupancy at a guess from my reccy yesterday. Rental properties near the beach are standing empty. The only two bars open are only frequented by the dwindling number of expats h...
