Thailand Beach Resort Mae Pim

Thailand Beach Resort Mae Pim

Thailand Beach Resort Mae Pim Thailand Beach Resort Mae Pim on the gulf of Thailand is only ninety minutes by car east of Pattaya, and 2 hours south of Bangkok. Beautiful white sand and clean water, and so quiet and peaceful after the noise & Madness of Pattaya.

The main road in Thailand Beach Resort Mae Pim

Thailand Beach Resort Mae Pim Reminds me of the Eagles song “Long Road out of Eden”, so little traffic midweek compared to Pattaya.

Fresh seafood caught by these boats.

Thailand Beach Resort Mae Pim There are about 15 seafood restaurants offering all varieties of fish and shell fish.

Curry crab & spring rolls

Sinsiam Resort

Thailand Beach Resort Mae Pim Our hotel was rather old fashioned but the rooms were very good and the pool was enormous.

Olympic size pool

Thailand Beach Resort Mae Pim The water was a perfect temperature for guys like us who are allergic to the cold. 🙂

Grab a little sun and sand before lunch at Tequila Sunrise.

Tequila Sunrise

Tequila Sunrise Thailand A busy bar with a great selection of food, however B175 for Jack Daniels is way over the top.

Back to the beach

David Herd Thailand Tequila Sunset restaurant overlooked the sandy beach where the gentle waves brushed against the shore, we marvelled at the beautiful onshore breeze blowing from the west, and thoroughly enjoyed the solitude of Mae Pim compared to the madness of Pattaya.

Bike for hire

Thailand Beach Resort Mae Pim These multi passenger bikes are for hire, the roads are very quiet so I’m sure they are reasonably safe.

Rabik Coffee

Rabik Coffee You realise you are in a Thai village when the local coffee shop does not show any English. 🙂

Bus to Ban Phe or Rayong

David Herd Thailand The cheap way to get to Pattaya is take a 30 minute songthaew ride to Ban Phe then hook up with a mini bus.

20 minutes past Rayong
