Re: Sewell's Restaurant and Bar

Looks like this place has closed up now, the owner has returned to the UK and it has been shut every time I have rode past.

Another two-minute-business plan ends in the pan!

Re: New Tesco Lotus store for Bangsaphan

Construction has started, the new Tesco Lotus is on a big patch of land just before the hospital as you're coming into town.

Re: Bangsaphan beach land price guide

How about a new topic as a land price guide for Ban Krut? I think it is substantially more expensive than here in BS.

Re: Buying versus renting property in Bangsaphan

Renting has to be the way to go since it costs peanuts in Bangsapan anyway.

Buying is just too risky, you can't own it anyway and a new government could simply change the rules to prevent Thai spouse ownership also - they are very anti-foreigner.

Re: beach club

You will have a lot of competition with the 'boat trips' - there are at least 15 different companies now offering this from Bangsapan noi. Kitesurfing would work here though - ideal conditions and I am surprised that nobody has done it yet.

You may want to try reading a bit yourself - I can glean nothing about the current status of GK's and saw a falang in there yesterday - hence the question.

Re: Bangsaphan bird buildings

Everytime I take a drive into town there seems to be another one going up ... surely the viable population of these types of birds cannot support all of these 'hotels'?

Waste disposal facility planned for Bangsapan

Does anyone have more info on this, I have questioned a number of signs in Thai in the hinterlands protesting at it - Mrs Wu explained to me that they are urging villagers to protest against a planned garbage disposal plant.

Re: Foreigner unwanted - nothing for Farang

On the surface it does seem to be a bit nationality specific, yes ...

I have never experienced problems in any shop anywhere in Thailand, but then I always go armed with a smile and a few words of the language.
