Hardly visited by "farang" this place is an absolute Jewel. None of the nastiness of pattaya just a great family resort with a beautiful beach. Great restaurants and cheap accommodation, we paid just £80 for a large bedroom flat for two evenings! Give this place a try before its popular and therefore spoilt.

South of Chonburi, Bang Saen beach area is host to quite a number of 'local' Thai seafood, seafront, restaurants. Not-overly-large menus, with pictures, are the means to choose your meal. We stopped at the first, Chaal ta lay, and were pleasantly surprised by the prompt attentiveness of the staff member. Fans were brought near our table to make a nice... More

The beach is nice but not like the beaches in the South where the water is blue and clear. But it is the closest beach to Bangkok and there is plenty of food stands for fresh seafood. Some trash gets washed ashore but is kept clean by the local authorities. One can rent tire tubes and other beach things.

Firstly the parking is a nightmare with cars parked 3 deep. The beach is crammed with old style deck chairs, end to end, there is no room at all between them, litter much of which not recent is strewn all over. As for the sea it doesn't look particularly inviting and has jet skis and other water sports there, making... More

Missed the September annual Bikers convention where over a thousand bikers descend on this beautiful seaside town. Accommodation can be hotel or bungalow, we chose a hotel as all the bungalows were occupied when we arrived. A nice town full of restaurants is just around the corner from the excellent beach but many on the beach promenade food and clothing... More

Because the location and landscape of the beach, this is a place for the seafood farming so it good for enjoy Seafood in reasonable price, not for other things. Good for one day trip or one night. Winter is the most beautiful time to visit.
