    Bang Tao Beach

    How is the Bang Tao area? I have never really spent much time there

    How long a drive from Kamala?
    Is there a village area that has some bars/restaurants?
    Is the beach nice?

    There are some decent priced private pool villas there

    Don't know if my wife would be into staying over there though

    its another 20ish minutes on from Kamala...so double the distance to Patong

    Yep...has nice beach areas (along one long beach) with beach clubs and its own village areas with some nice restaurants etc

    For me its a kind of stand alone holiday though...you are quite the way out over there

    Yeah don't think she will go for it.....she likes to be in the action when in Thailand(food!)

    the thing is, kills me to book 2 regular rooms when can get a villa with pool for just a bit more

    Surin Beach is a bit closer and a good beach, but am not sure how much is still open since they closed down a lot of the businesses there that were on the beach.

    We decided on the far end of Patong going towards Kalim.
    It gives me a bit of peace away from the chaos, allows her and her mom to walk everywhere
    And i actually like that end of Patong beach

    Thinking a place called The Charm Resort
    It has a nice Jr Suite with pool access, i like pool acceas rooms

    If my wife had her way....she'd stay right on Soi Sansabai but i just dont like the congestion
