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...

Re: Current weather and sea conditions in Bangsaphan

There are some pics of the high tide and storm waves yesterday on the BS FB page: https://www.facebook.com/groups/bangsaphanfans/

Again a lot of rain overnight but no major damage here. Those fortunate enough to have beachfront houses got a bit wetter than usual.

Re: Current weather and sea conditions in Bangsaphan

Re: Trash Hero Bangsaphan: Suan Luang beach cleaning

Great news! Trash Heroes were back in action today - and the local council turned up with the garbage truck. They will now be taking the trash away every week, bottles go to recycling and the rest of it gets compacted and sent to Pranburi for processing. 47400378_2239269046289700_5791378904593727488...
