Electricity supply

I am not sure if I am just unlucky or positioned in a place of vulnerability or a bit of both but my electricity supply is interrupted more often than it should. Every time except once it has only been my little lane of four houses that are affected. Every time except once, a natural phenomenon has ...

Buksida - the "Kuwaitis next door" is just one Kuwaiti, an excellent bloke who has spent a lot of time in BS over several years. He is quite popular with the locals. While not a particularly observant Muslim, he has raised money for the local mosque. He is a great wildlife photographer. Guess me ol...

Dang Bungalows

My wife visited Dang Bungalows yesterday to get some details from them to post on this site. The reception she got was not welcoming. She was told it was private property. She replied to them in Thai explaining what she was visiting them for but they were not interested. So if anybody wonders why th...

Many of the resorts rely on only one English reader and speaker. He/she will have to answer email, take telephone and reception bookings and maybe take restaurant orders so email is usually the last priority. When you have made you choice and cannot book online, make a post here with the hotel detai...

The fare to Chumpon is published here http://www.railway.co.th/English/Time_HTML.asp at 480 for 2nd class aircon and 380 for 2nd class fan so the fare to PKK or BK will be less than that. I am not sure that the service is more frequent. There are only two times per day when you can leave BKK for BK ...

My recommendation is: From whatever Airport you arrive get a taxi to either one of: Thonburi bus station. Go to the Bang Saphan kiosk at get a ticket and jump on the next bus down. It has to be the Bang Saphan bus as the others don't turn off the main road and that is 17 KM from us. This guide.com h...

Many thanks for the comprehensive report. It sounds like it was quite an adventure. Maybe more than you had bargained for. I can't remember when you said you made the trip but anyway a few things have changed very recently. I still have not visited Dang Bungalows myself and only found out its precis...

It's on my agenda to get down there and check it out so any names of the places you mention would be handy. Hopefully we can then post a section on the area. I have driven south from the Sunrise Resort area recently and seen a few resorts of varying standard but I am not sure what the area would be ...
