Why is nobody posting on the forum?

Post by buksida » 30 Jul 2010 13:41

I know people are reading the forum as there are always 10-15 online every time I login.

So why is nobody posting anything? C'mon, say g'day and ask about Bangsaphan or tell us a few things!

Just a quick bump to this as I know Bangsaphanians are reading this board ... get posting!

Something, anything, thoughts on topics, local news and rumours, observations, a photo ...

how about some opinions on buying verses renting a home in Bang Saphan, or Building and owning your home as a farang and leasing the land. Is the price of land near the beach worth the money or better to be 1 or 2 K away for a much lower price

I'm interested in knowing how the place 1st attracted farangs - are they all ex-Huahinians fed up with life there, or are there are other reasons they came, or is it all for the same idyll? To me, in my short sojourn there, the attraction is obvious, but there are always those with a vision, a business plan....

And what exactly is the attraction to the French of the Coral Resort, or are they visiting to see if the Thailand as described in Platform, by Michel Houellebecq, actually exists? :D

And for BKrut - why all the (emptyish) resorts? Where'd they come from? Was it a reward for the building of the temple and anticipated future tourism, or is that wide of the mark?

Good call, fire up a new thread with maybe a poll, and see what responses we get.

We first visted Bangsaphan as we saw the name on the map,checked out accom, and came looking for peace and quiet ,while we were living in Bangkok. We certainly found it.Having moved to Chiang Mai its more diificult to visit, 12 hour bus to Hua Hin 8am to 8pm and then train. I realise we could fly to Bangkok etc but on a limited budget bus and train the way to go.Unfortuantly means overnighting in HH which in my opinion has gone downhill over the last 10 years.

I read the forum often, but not a lot to say.

I haven't spent a lot of time in BS but the place appeals to me more than HH

compared to hua hin foum , the bang saphan forum is dead...could it be that bang saphan people are no where near as frustated as hua hin people and do not need to vent their anger/ after spending some time reading the HH forum I think most of those posters are a few bricks short of a load...just a thought

hello ,hello....is anybody out there? I can see Buksi is getting a little frustrated here. Its pure and simple my friend, people that live in BSP are not silly, they know when they are on a good thing and they are keeping it to themselves. Yes i understand the reasoning behind their selfish attitude Buksi, but if i to was living in BSP i would be keeping my mouth shut as well. Well i got news for all you shy scared weird little guys, the word is out, and you are about to be invaded by the masses. Your little patch of paradise is soon to follow the path of every other patch of paradise in Thailand that has begun as an unspoilt peaceful getaway. 'Caller' had a few good questions, which so far have gone unanswered, so i dont hold much hope of getting a response here..........what i would like to know is, what peoples vision of the future is for BSF, say in 10 or 20 years......hello hello
