Re: My first visit this morning

Welcome to the forum and bangsaphan.

The nearest immigration is Dansingkon (1 hour) just before Prachuap if you need to do 90 day reports or tourist visa extensions. If you need to cross a border the nearest is Ranong (3 hours).

Re: Bus to Ban Krut

Hi, Any bus south will stop on the highway at Ban Krut, you can then get a moto-taxi to the beach or arrange a pickup from your accommodation. Not sure there is one direct, there are no tour busses from Khao San. The highway is only a few kms from the town anyway, if you want direct take the train, ...

Re: Trash Hero Bangsaphan: Suan Luang beach cleaning

Any reason? Yes, the locals have been dumping their household food waste at the same place we leave what we have collected off the beach and they refuse to take that stuff. The primary problem is that there are no bins in the area and people wont pay the few satang for the collection service, which...

Re: Deadsville, Bangsaphan

Very true, last time things were 'full' around here was about 4-5 years ago. Strangely coinciding with the dictatorship takeover.

Also there are about 5 times more bungalows now than there was 5 years ago, but with 5 times fewer people to stay in them.

Re: Trash Hero Bangsaphan: Suan Luang beach cleaning

One step forward two steps back.

The govt trash truck has stopped collecting so the Trash Heroes, who have been cleaning beaches in Bangsaphan for almost five years, may have to suspend operations again.

Re: Deadsville, Bangsaphan

We did a beach clean today and noticed most beach resorts are empty again. Either that or the tourists are all hiding in some underground bunker we don't know about.

Re: Deadsville, Bangsaphan

Seems to be a lot of reasons including these: Anti-farang military government Constant visa crackdowns (tourists have to show money now and they're given a lot of grief if they want to extend) Very strong baht, weak western currencies Floods and storms BS general negativity such as half the places a...

Re: Deadsville, Bangsaphan

We are in the height of what has previously been described as 'peak season' yet many of the resorts are still empty or running below 20% occupation. Here is a picture of Bangsaphan's most popular beach bar at 6pm yesterday ... montris.jpg The only place that seems to have customers at the moment is ...

Re: Koh Tao Turtle Identification Project

We rescued this green sea turtle from the beach yesterday. Not one from Koh Talu apparently as it wasn't tagged. Came in very weak so we called the DMCR who sent people within an hour. A specialist then came from Chumphon where the turtle was taken for rehabilitation. 49406810_2298876860348125_34026...
