Empty shelves in the shops

Re: Looking for land in ban krut

Most of these signs are on large lots, for instance to make a resort. The owners are usually not willing to sell a smaller piece. If you are searching for a smaller lot, you may want to ask at the "Thai-American Restaurant" in Ban Krut. The owner is an older lady, who has lived in US and speaks bett...

Re: Bangsaphan Triathlon

It seems that the triathlon has been moved to Ban Krut.
There is a problem in BS with green shirt protesters, because Sahaviriya Group, the factory in BS, is one of the main sponsors.

You can visit http://www.thailandtriathlon.org if you need to know more.

Re: Bangsaphan's first map, now available online

Very good and very accurate.
Less people will get lost, between Bang Saphan to Ban Krut, when they use this map instead of the old one.
I hope to find a printed copy, next time when I am in Ban Krut.

Re: Bangsaphan beach land price guide

You have to multiply by 4, to calculate from talang wa to sq. m's, so your plot is 600 sq. m's. I know this place and I agree with you that the view is very nice and the price is good. Hopefully it will not be destroyed by a developer who builds a 3 story hotel near the beach. But you will have to g...

Re: Buying versus renting property in Bangsaphan

Buy!
We bought our house in Ban Krut 8 years ago and in the mean time the value has doubled.
The development in Bang Saphan is a few years behind Ban Krut.
Once a few resorts are build, which attract people from Bangkok, the area will get more popular and real estate prices will go up.

Re: Beach cleaners wanted!

Last year, I took this picture in Ban Krut when I noticed that the children were cleaning the beach.
But from the uniform I cannot not tell if they belong to a school or a scouts-group. I assume it is a school.

Re: High tides - Bangsaphan beach erosion

Also Ban Krut is suffering from beach erosion. The pictures show the well known restaurant "The Beach", , where the water has reached the restaurant and people are busy trying to save it, by putting sand bags. http://www.xs4all.nl/~bzt30/thailand/beach1.jpg http://www.xs4all.nl/~bzt30/thailand/beach...
