Currently 7am and I am sat on the balcony of our room at Lah Own resort.
This resort is lovely. Thanks to Arandora for recommending this place to me.
When we were searching for accommodation we wanted a small resort with a Thai feel, right on the beach and close to beach restaurants. This place has it all.
It is nothing fancy, but all your basic needs are catered for. No spa, no swim up rooms just really good clean, comfortable rooms in a tranquil setting.
The beach scene is very much alive. I haven't counted but there must be 20-30 beach bars/restaurants within a 5 minute walk of our room. Every single one has its own set of beach loungers and they are like a magnet for the guests of the nearby hotels and further afield. I have met people that walk 20+ minutes every day to ghetto this row of restaurants and spend their whole day there. Total blissful relaxation.
Went into Bang La On first night (sat) and spent last night at Tiew Son on the beach.
I could spend the rest of my life here.
Tonight we are heading to Biang Niang Market early evening and then exploring the rest of the area.Edited: 27 January 2014, 00:09
