Re: Map of Ban Krut for smartphone GPS and PC

Since 2006 I have been experimenting with GPS maps for the area of Ban Krut. I stopped about 4 years ago when Garmin came with commercial maps for Thailand. But I still have the GPS coordinates for many tourist attractions in the area, like for instance "Montri's" is: N11°10'06.55" E099°29'54.57". I...

Re: thoughts about a long term stay in suan luang

For visas you can go to Dansingkhon immigration in Prachuab, its only an hour away.
Is Dansingkhon already open for a visa run to renew a 90 day visa?
Last time I still had to go to Ranong.

Re: searching for long term stay in Ban Krut

Golden Sea village is definetely more quiet.
They don't do bus tours anymore and the neighbouring resorts are further away.

I will send you a private message with the contact details.

I wonder how long it will take before Ban Krut will reach its saturation point.

Re: searching for long term stay in Ban Krut

Hello Deborah, In “Golden Sea Village” are several homes for rent. (www.goldenseavillage.com) All these homes are privately owned so you cannot approach the office of the resort for renting. There is a Thai lady who lives in the resort and she mediates on behalf of the owners of these houses. I will...

Look at the size of the workers, to get an idea of the size of the sculpture.

Re: Wat Kaew Prasert; Chinese torture temple

I was there yesterday and saw the creating a huge Buddha sculpture. A person in our group with Chinese Buddhist backgrounds explained the meaning of the torture sculptures. For instance, if you commit adultery during your life, you will go to hell and rats will eat your private parts. Buksi’s pictur...

Re: Suan Luang Beach infrastructure wishlist

Look at the positive side: Suan Luang has a couple of nice beach bars, where you can get together.
In Ban Krut we have a 7/11, ATM’s and the problems with power and internet are not annoying.
But there is no farang meeting place, like Montri’s.

Re: New Visitor info - Ban Krut

There is no regular public transportation between Ban Krut and Bang Saphan. There are several places where you can hire a local driver, for instance at "Ban Krut Tour and Travel" or the internetshop opposite. And if you stay at Arcadia, I am sure that the reception can help you as well. I have no id...

Re: New Visitor inifo

Hi Rone, Ban Krut is sure a lot more relaxed, then the hectic from Hua Hin. It is about 1 km from the railway station to the beach. At the station are normaly a few sidecar-motorcycle taxi's waiting if you decide not to walk. As soon as you reach the beach, there is a junction and at the right is Si...
