Hi,

I'm Topper, I'm an American, living in Bangkok. I'm planning a visit down to Bang Saphan the first week of March and would like to know a couple of things about the area.

First, accomodation.

I'm looking for a place that's priced around 2k that's within walking distance of most of the bars/restaurants/shopping. I'd appreciate any recommendations.

Next, getting there/back by train.
I've looked at the SRT website and found the trains running to Bang Saphan, but don't see any returning to Bangkok. Can you please provide some info, if possible about the train schedule from there to BKK?

As the time gets closer, I'd be more than willing to bring supplies from BKK if anyone wants something.

Also, I run SubZero Siam, a forum for expats in Thailand, if you have time, check it out.

Thanks buksida, I'll give it a look.

After looking through the "Property" section, I got to wondering if there's any beach front homes for rent that you guys may know of?

There are very few houses right on the beach, you'll get a bungalow but probably not during the peak months of Dec to Feb.
