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...

Re: Status of various things in Bangsaphan

The tourism problem is country wide - military regime don't seem too bothered though and keep trying to invent rules to stifle it. Obviously BS gets hit a little harder than elsewhere as its harder to get to and has no decent transport links. Prices have also been rising steadily in Thailand and the...

Yep, Country Road closed, as did Blue Bar.

Coco currently open but he closes very early these days. Why Not still going but that's about it.

Re: Rent a motorbike for two month at Bankrut

These guys will deliver to Ban Krut for a two month rental - you'll need to call a week or so ahead to see if they have any bikes available, they get rented out quick in high season:

Re: Status of various things in Bangsaphan

So what's best idea to stop frying appliances? Don't live near the beach or buy your own transformer! You're looking at serious money for a automated voltage regulator and backup battery system for a whole house, you'll need an extra house to store the batteries! Its a two pronged problem; 1) overl...

Re: Status of various things in Bangsaphan

I'll give you some honest responses rather than what you probably want to hear. 1) Electricity supply depends where you are - there are blackouts several times a week down near the beach, but if you're on the main road it is stable. 2) As above, patchy away from the main road and town, there is "fib...

Re: A trip to support Prachuap FC

Unfortunately I didn't get to see the game as the rugby semi final took precedence and it wasn't aired on TV. Thought it was in the bag when we were 2 up but I guess you guys stepped up the game in the second half so a good away result. Looking forward to next season and glad to see a new champion t...

Re: A trip to support Prachuap FC

Superb result, we were outplayed for the second half but managed to hold them off.

Amazing to think that just a few years ago we were watching Prachuap in division two playing Chumphon!

Re: A trip to support Prachuap FC

Better than our recent league performance though we have no chance of beating Buriram, I don't think we're allowed to win that one!

Re: Dam Breach???

This has been posted on the local facebook group:




This particular reservoir is north of Ban Krut - so doesn't affect BS.
