    ^ Definately worth considering by the sound of your post taxexile, one to think
    about for the future. Bangyai looks a winner judging on his pics .Good luck!!

    I stayed at this place too - missus liked it (she preferred a chalet), easy to park the car in the private car park, and the beach is a few seconds walk away. Keep meaning to go back for a few days, not wonderful, but pleasant and cheap... Nice food along the beach. A nice night market for the Thai ladies...
    How do I post these pictures???

    Yes, rooms in the rear block are the best value, especially as the balconies are in the shade in the afternoon so you can sit out there reading a book or looking out to sea without getting fried. Only a 100 baht increase in four years is pretty good going.

    Wednesdays, head for the train station, it's in front of it. Get there about 5.30pm and head about 100 metres down the left side of it, where the beers only 50 baht a bottle, be quick, those old Scanivanian piss heads take the seats sharpish. Then leave the Missus to the shopping

    Also, turn left out of the hotel, walk down for 5 mins to a larger street adjacent (they rent motorbikes just inside the 2 way street), turn left there then first right for a bric-a-brac type street market every night that me missus liked too...

    It's literally on the 1st road back, parallel to the beach, right in the centre of the beach road - opposite the promenade area.

    I know which one you mean, there's normally a fair behind it ?

    That only comes out for special occasions like Songkran, Loy Krathong or whatever, I believe

    ^ok, sorry. It was on when I was at Cha-am, but they did have an event going on for a few days on the beach, so you're probably right...

    That gives you 4 days to find a cheaper place...

    My missus found lots of places further up the beach road (away from Bkk) that were 400-500 baht.

    That main road that leads to the beach, Narathip Road, is probably the road you came in on, it's recognizeable by the amount of chickens you see for sale coming down it.

    It's the 4th road down when you hit the beach

    Hey Bangyai or Bobcock. Where is Krua Medsai restaurant, I have heard it is at the north end of the beach. This looks to be just what we are after the first night down. We are using up free coupons the wife has. One night at the Regent in Cha am, then 2 nights at the Sheraton in Hua hin.

    Its a pretty well know place so once you get to the north of the beach the first Thai you ask will know.

    Bangyai,

    Somehow the address does not correlate with the pictures because there sure as hell is no beach up there.

    Did they relocate away from the beach?

    you head North up that beach road until you run out of road and hit a dirt road then you will see it on your right. It is on the beach just before the fishing pier
