    Bang Suphan,Prachuap Khiri Khan Province.

    About 370k's south of BKK is a lovely beach area Bang Saphan-Ban Krut,about 40 k's of nice beach and thickly vegetated land behind.

    It's a bit out of the way but possibly a good halfway place for a stopover between BKK and Koh Samui or Phuket.

    As with all that coast,except for Lamai, the water is not very deep or clean but has nice long stretches of sand.

    Bang Sapahan is a lovely little resort village with many hidden away bungalows,bars and some really good restaurants.
    I stayed at Suan Luang Beach and the whole place reminded me a lot of Khanom NST.Many big,thicklly wooded,blocks of land with cows grazing on them.

    Coco beach bar is the most popular amongst the 50-60 expat community as well as Why Not bar.

    The place is getting popular with couples and families with people staying for 3-7 day holidays and returning year after year.

    Well worth a stopover even in the rainy season as the heavy rain from the SW monsoon seems to miss there.
    There was a really big rain storm that went through nearby Chumpon but only a light shower when i stayed there....quite common so the locals told me.





    Beachside bungalows..

    Ban Krut...



    Looking south towards Bang Suphan...

    Little cove we stopped at 1/2 way. Nearby Burmese fishing village is a service centre for the cashed up fisherman by all reports and some lovelies seen around the area.

    Prachuap Khiri Khan.







    Driving through PKK i came across a big road intersection out the middle of nowhere.

    Stopped and looked and realised it was the runway at the local airport 55
    Road 3167 goes straight across the middle of it.

    I know they look terrible but those quick release rear boxes are ideal for short trips, the one I had on our last trip with you was ideal IMO

    That photo with the boats in the ground cover looks like Samui, Theres a place south of Lamai that Nels took us looks identical.

    I wouldn't argue with that Rivo but as you know i have a bigger bike for doing the north on

    This trip on the PCX was probably a one off using the train for the longer less interesting hauls and having all my stuff under the seat worked well.
    When i pulled up at a hotel i just pulled my backpack out and put my helmet,ride jersey and gloves under the seat.

    Just had to make sure to laundry a few things every few days.

    There's a coastal route from Samut Songkhram to Cha Am that's a nice alternative to the main motorway's.

    https://www.google.com.au/maps/dir/1...12.7994866!3e0

    There's a couple of popular beach resorts along the way and dozens of k's of salt farms that you see from the plane when coming and going from Bangkok.I always wondered how,what i thought was rice fields,could grow right up to the salty,dirty gulf.
