    Hello Kamala welcome to the forum. I myself don't (unfortunately) but there are a few here who reside there. I'm sure they will drop in for a hello soon.

    Welcome to the board, looking forward to your stories. I bet you have a few.

    How did you like Phnom Penh?

    it was, no traffic light till u got to phuket town, no traffic anywhere, Beach front bungalows for 500 baht/night
    soi bangla was mostly restaurants ( when they cleared the beach in like '82 they gave all the rests there a spot on the right hand side of bangla so each one was called by their number back then) They are still owned by the goverment so cannot be sold or remodeled outside only the inside ( waiting for the day the goverment takes them back an really develops soi bangla)>

    I ran, what is now Rock hard, at the end of Bangla. the other side of song roi pee was all rice fields, we would watch people walk half way up soi bangla an get to Nordic bungalows and than turn around cause it was so dark.

    Ahh the good times LOL

    Wttb, Kamala... you're likely the first new (posting) BM in awhile... I'm looking forward to the stories.
    Remember that not getting what you want is sometimes a wonderful stroke of luck.

    WTTB Kamala, If you have some photo's from earlier times and care to post them I'm sure every one would be appreciated.

    Look forward to any of your stories or TR's as well.

    Yes , welcome.
    I live in a Soi owned by Khun Samut ( "Bung Moot'' ) in Baan Bang Waan at the back of the valley near the turn off to Kamala Hills.

    Have you ever walked over the hill at Bang Waan to Patong like the locals used to?
