|Bamboo Bungalows Koh Phayam|
Bamboo Bungalows is very nice at 500 Baht a night for a bungalow out of season. The room is big and the outdoor shower is special. It is on a 3 mile stretch of beach that is very pretty. In the rainy season, July to October, there is constantly a strong on shore breeze blowing resulting in a lot of debris washing up on the beach. It was very quiet and after 1 night I headed back to the pier by motto taxi, 70 Baht, to resume my search for a place closer.

After some more walking I hired a bike, 200 Baht, as walking was getting me nowhere. There is no shortage of places to hire a bike. None of the locals have a clue about accommodation availability with one even asking for money for information. On the bike and headed North along the shore. Along the way I saw a Westerner walking to the pier and he pointed me in the direction of PP Land. Thanks American Arnold.

When I got there the owner was out, but after a bottle of water I was shown to a great little hut 15 meters from the beach. A great view of the ocean partly obscured by trees in a peaceful natural surrounding. There are about 16 huts and all are fairly close to the water. Paul from Belgium has built the resort up over the last 8 years. It has 24 hour electricity, a fan in the room, free high speed internet and a pool.

Took a ride over to Buffalo Bay (Aow Khao Kwai) which is really an awesome bay. Called Buffalo because the bay is shaped like a pair of Buffalo horns.

Koh Phayam is definitely worth a visit. Some of the most beautiful beaches I have seen in Thailand.
