AND if you like golf you are in seventh heaven.

Not sure if they still do it, but there use to be a golf festival once a year for 2 or 3 weeks where all the courses were available to play for a set green fee (B800 last time I was there) That included the top of the range courses like Black Mountain/Springfield etc which saved you close on B2000 a round). Also well worth the trip was the course at Kaeng Krachan (abt 40 min North of Cha am) cheap as chips, almost empty and a really nice relaxing course to play.

Good call Stationhand, the Golf Festival still runs August and September and as you say the premier courses participate.

I ended up going to Rayong and Chantaburi Provinces. The best beach I came across was at Hat Chau Lao. Pristine, clear water in which you can wade far out in the water. Nice, but pricey restaurants, and very few people so you basically have the water to yourselves. I did not notice nightlife of any kind, but I was not s
searching for it.

Some of you might have been to Peggy's Cove in Newfoundland. Well, there is a Peggy's Cove Resort at Kungwiman Beach in Chantaburi. It costs 9,000 baht/night. Needles to say, we hightailed it out of there although we had lunch at the restaurant across the street by the water.

I believe I was at Hat Chau Lau on Thursday and Friday nights (31 August and 1 September). A tour bus showed up with a bunch of teachers on late Thursday afternoon. Then went to the beach for a series of selfies for about 10-15 minutes and retired to the kareoke room until 10 that night. Friday, no-one was at the beach.

Saturday and Sunday was packed with Thais at Bangsaen Beach.

Hat Chau Lao usually starts to fill up late Thurs PM with truckloads arriving all through Fri ...... then by Monday you get the beach to yourself again :lol: Perhaps it is losing its popularity with the locals? or perhaps it's 'coz we always go during chool hols when we go :lol:
It's actually quite fun to witness the changes from laid back cant be asked to bustling tourist resort and then back to tranquility again all in the space of 4 or 5 days. :-k

We aw 10 or 11 tour buses roll into the more expensive hotels on Thursday afternoon, but they did not stay near us. We were pretty much alone on our part of the beach.
