BanSaen BanSen BanSan Beach Thailand

BanSaen BanSen BanSan Beach Thailand
I am at a beach, nobody can seem to decide how to spell in English, but this is Thailand... I sort of search often for a good Beach close to Bangkok, one where I can just spontaneously visit when I am in Bangkok.

No planes, trains or hassles, just leave, one that is a couple or hours from Bangkok.

This is a map of the region around Bangkok; I am not keen on 5-8 hour bus trips to get to Koh Chang or Koh Mak near Cambodia. Moreover, they are now past prime time for good beaches. Too long on the market, the Pattaya Beach is known as a world class rental of boom boom the girls location and may have good beaches, I have never been there. But a good beach is more than just sand and water.

A Thailand girl got some recommendations from co-workers and I am now in Bang Saen for two day and one night. (She just corrected my typing in English, and for sure this English spelling is under debate.

My method is to find these types of places is to get some nice unsuspecting Thai person to write the word in English and then hope we agreed.

Ban Saen is a weekend warrior beach, typical Thailand beach, a rent an umbrella, stay out of the sun beach. A good boardwalk, plenty of Hotels behind the beach and no reason to rent a room on the beach. Because there is no room on the beach, the road is between the beach and the rooms.
Very easy to find an AC, TV, room for 200-400 Baht one block off the big monument that announces the beach and take a left.

I would believe on the weekends this place is full of Thailand people sitting under umbrellas avoiding the sun, and drinking beer.

It is funny in the world; most beaches on the planet are avoided, because the world doe not want to get tan, they want to stay white as possibl, however go to a beach to get some sun.

I have an AIS One to Call GPRS internet connection, with this connection it makes wandering around Thailand possible, without the continue hunt for Internet Café.

I knew you'd have to get your beach fix eventually. If uncrowded, for me it's always the best place to clear the mind and get some deep therapeutic relaxation.

Finding quality shorelines in close proximity to such an important traveler hub is a good quest. Let us know how this one stacks up next to the other Thai beaches.


Beach front or ocean front land is some of the cheapest on the planet. If there is no harbor or natural docking for boats. Then just salty sand.

I tend to think there are still open beach areas along the coast north of Chon Buri.

Ban Saen is not a beach for me, however great for many. Perfect for a Thai person with tons of shade trees, Easy parking of cars, tons of food stands, water sports, skidoos, inner tubes. The water is shallow enough for children.

A weekend parks you can drive your car to.

The bungalows on the beach, like the ones in the movie the beach are the best. Private, on the beach, and walk out to go swim.

This is like Lauderdale, big highway between the hotels and beach. There is about 3 kilometers of parking, and I really admire the Thailand people for planning this beach. It has high coconut trees, great parking, wide streets, and all is planned. Perfect for the Thailand culture.

I am dwelling on a project to list the top beaches on the planet and explain the features of beach.

Such as, why you want a dry sand area?

Many nice beaches in Thailand
