Re: Bayview Beach resort in Ban Krut

Mike, There are several issues to consider about Bang Saphan. I lived in that area for 3 years (Ban Krut and Don Samran). Check out the areas that are prone to flooding. Lek's Pizza (may be closed now) was a good friend of mine. Her shophouse flooded a number of times. Drainage in that area is terri...
