May 5, 2013 ; Huay Yai

 

Got on my motorbike and headed towards Huay Yai.

Huay Yai is a nice area with nice homes and slower traffic. It is a little distance from town I would say about 15 or 30 minutes depending on traffic. The first part is Huay Yai Resort, a really nice place if you need to just chill out in a big way. The grounds are beautiful and pretty well kept. There is a club house, and a nice swimming pool with dining areas and lounge chairs. The bungalows are pretty basic with all wooden interiors, but they do have aircon and hot water. The shower is an enclosed unit with what looks like electronic temperature controls. There is also WIFI so if you need to catch up on your stocks you could do that while having breakfast on the bungalow patio. Rates are 1,500 Bahts per night which is a pretty good value.

The drawback is the distance from town. A taxi will set you back three or four hundred bahts and it will take some time too. Also there isn’t anything in the way of night life nearby. There are however a few attractions nearby like the Floating Market and Nong Nooch Gardens. If you like peace and quiet this is the place to be.

I happened across this for rent sign for a shop house. These shop houses are about sixty meters for each floor. The ground floor is one large open room with a bathroom under the stair way. A back door leads out onto a small patio that could be used as a stinky food kitchen. Upstairs has two bedrooms both with ensuite bathrooms with hot water. Between the two bedrooms is a common living area that could be used as a lounge.

I was quoted a rate of eight thousand bahts per month which may sound cheap but remember this is out of town and there isn’t much in the way of drive by traffic or shootings. Generally I like the area for a visit but I wouldn’t want to live there, but for some it would be great…
