    Left khon kean at 6 this morning. I'm now on 1oo kicks from chantaburi holed up in a coffee shop as it's passing rain to hard to see the road. Bugger. How did I get talked into this?

    Bugger the fancy resorts and book yourself into Paddy's Palms in Whitesands.

    Try and get the executive suite if available - very cheap and good value.

    Once you have done the touristy thing during the day there are lots of not bad restaurants and bars for amusement all within staggering distance.

    Reminds me of Thailand 20 years ago. Well worth the trip enjoy!

    It's all good dill.had a night in chantaburi town. Very nice now in a place that I thought was chaolao beach but was 10 kms short of it. Booked it on agoda without doing the research. It's a shit hole. As is chaolao beach. Another early start tomorrow to get to the ferry to ko kut booked 2 nights there. I plan on being a decadent barsteward and will probably swagger around as if I own the place. After that it's 2 or 3 nights in ko chang. Followed by a 1000 klick roadie back to lao. Damn. What the fuk was I thinking of? . Me and the wife never heard of airplanes?

    Well, it's raining here too, in the Republic of Western Canada...Much appreciated because it's now getting hot as fook here as summer approaches in the sunny Okanagan Valley...

    Enjoy your trip...

    I done it years ago minus the kids but didn't stop in chantaburi or the beaches around it. Wasn't overly impressed with chaolao beach. Although it had more going on than the beach i stayed at Thought laem sing and kung- wiman were nicer. Did get to eat some good seafood though.

    We go regular to Chao Lao beach and yes it can be a little rough regarding rubbish. It all depends what part of the beach your resort is. Last year the resort we stayed at was fine but the adjacent beach was littered with squid hooks and general fisherman's items. Other times the resort was crap but the beach clean.

    I think if you just want to relax and eat seafood then it's OK. Totally geared for the thai market.I can imagine it gets busy on weekends. The place we stayed had a pool and cottages on the beach as well as a pool. There's no way I would of swum in the beach there. Just to damn grubby . Maybe it's cleaner at a different time of year. Anyway got to ko kood now and will stay 2 nights. Then hit ko chang for 3 nights. Took iceman advice and got an apartment for 1550 a night at paddys palms booking your hire . Liked the look of the kacha that began recommend3d but they wanted 1600 baht for a foldout bed on top of the 1700 room rate.

    yeah. Nice place for sure. Locals are relaxed. Beaches are lovely. The resorts are all spread apart so you tend to just eat and drink where you stay. It's a bit to quiete for me. Was glad we went but wouldn't rush back there. Will throw up some pics when i get home

    Bogon Tip #485

    In the evening, if you come out of Paddy's on the beach, turn left and there are a few places set up on the beach to chill out on.

    There was one place that was decked out all in red with a Flipper band playing on the stage that were half decent.

    Can't miss it.
    Black diamonds? I shit 'em.
