Resort in south Thailand near Chumphon
Ban Sai Thong Beach resort


Everybody wants a splurge sometimes. I wanted one when I was cycling from Bangkok to Chumphon in 2006. As I wrote on that page I didn't want to cycle the distance between Prachuap Khiri Khan and Chumphon in one day, even though I could do that.

Bang Saphan snorkeling and diving
 
Day trip in the Gulf of Thailand. From Bang Saphan, you will board a speed boat to two well-known diving spots, Ko Thalu and Ko Sing islands, where you can snorkel and explore the local marine world.

 



My original idea was to stay in Bang Saphan but for whatever reason, I decided to continue. I found the Ban Sai Thong Beach Resort 25 km south of Bang Saphan and I loved it. It's one of those resorts you want to have once in while because the feel is good. True, there's not a lot to do in the area. But then again, have a look at the view!

The hotel is one year old, now in 2006, and it's still in development. The 19 rooms are all very well maintained with hot water (a very nice and very big bathroom) and TV.

For a cyclist coming from either the north of south, this is a great overnight stop. But what about if you travel with your family? Since it is 80 km from Chumphon you need to arrange transport since there's no public transport coming here.

However, you may want to consider a bus to Bang Saphan and go from there to the Ban Sai Thong Beach resort.

For those of you who have their own transport, here's a map how to find the Ban Sai Thong Beach resort near Chumphon. It's worth the effort and the money.

Cycling Bangkok to Chumphon

Bangkok - Chumphon is not what everybody cycles. As Chumphon is important for the connection to Koh Tao, travelers simply take a train down south. But there are things to check out on this 600 km long trail:

Phetchaburi


Cycling from Prachuap Khiri Khan to Ban Saphan and Chumphon

The road from Prachuap Khiri Khan to Chumphon is worth to cycle because you do not have to cycle the highway but you can follow the smaller road including one that passes the Ban Sai Thong Beach Resort.

Prachuap Khiri Khan to Saphan and Chumphon


Surat Thani to Satun

A magnificent road with plenty of splendid things to see. Think of Krabi, Phi Phi Island, Ko Lanta or even the remote beaches of Pak Meng.

Satun is the border (ferry) to Malaysia.
