Greetings...

Getting the 8:05 train from BK and will look for a place when I arrive. Thinking Lola's, since that's in my price range. Should I call to reserve 1st? Is it very busy now in BSY?

Hi Jim,
Yes it does get busy this time of year, especially Lola's as it is the cheapest place on the beach!

If you want to call ahead the number is 089-8284021

I got here save & sound, love my basic seaview bungalow. So friendly at Lola :)

My question is this I met two french couples last night who arrived by bus. They got into a mini-van and were told it was 100 baht. He dropped them off at Coral and asked for 500 baht (there was a child also) They talked him down to 400. Maybe they misunderstood 100 baht per person or was this just a scam.

If it was the Coral's own minivan this was probably the price - it is the most expensive resort in the area, everything in the place is priced at a premium.

Jim... you were so lucky. We tried to book Lola's... called one month in advance before our arrival. It was fully booked. Anyway we got another beach bungalow nearby so we were happy :)
