Re: Major flooding in Bangsaphan

I have heard about bad floodings in the past but this bad...I could not have imagined. Looks like a tsunami hit town! Hope everyone is ok under the circumstances. Looks like much property damage unfortunately?

Sepak Takraw in BS?

Do you know if Sepak Takraw is played much in Bang Saphan? Would be interested in watching a game or just kids playing. Also, I have a 7-year old son who enjoys football. Would be nice to let him try the game while in Bang Saphan next time (hopefully next year). https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sepak_t...

Re: Teaching in Bangsaphan

Re: Things to consider when buying land or a house in Bangsa

I don't get it. Why did the landoffice chief take offense at your land lease? I know they don't like foreigners but is there some particular issue here?

Re: Bangsaphan beach land price guide

Looks to me that the real estate market in BS has take a turn south. Now Dec 1st and occupancy is low at the resorts, plenty of bungalows to rent. Heard an anecdotal about a price cut for an attractive plot of land. More land-to-sell signs than tourists on the streets. I guess the coup is one factor...

Re: Bangsaphan property rental price guide

I think rental prices are increasing in BS? Was just offered to rent a two-bedroom house near the beach for 3000 baht per day , for a two-week period in November-December. That would correspond to 42000 baht for the two weeks, or 84000 per month... Have not been around for three years, is there some...
