Ban Chang improvements

Recommended Posts

The main bar street has been going through a slow painful death for years, as of a couple of months ago, no change there

I was there last week and a couple of new bars had opened up...the old Camel pub/restaurant for one and across the road the "Outback Bar"....plenty of smiling ladies also (as many as I,ve seen for the past couple of years or so)......let,s hope the "Strip" is on the up and up :thumbsup:

^The Camel has not re-opened. The 1st shophouse that used to be the Camel Shop has opened, -as another generic beer bar only.

 

Tbh, most of the "Strip" is an eyesore and could do with condensing into one block, or moving elsewhere. Banchang doesn't need it anymore.

To be fair I’m not really into bars . The worlds changing , pubs are dying everywhere . I don’t know why a few of you guys don’t set up a expat cycling club ? The roads are pretty flat and You get to socialise without killing yourself (guess that’s easier said then done with the drivers here 😂) plus the women in the girly bars seems to get older and uglier every year !

The entertainment establishments on the bypass road is where all the fit ladies hang out!!, 55, Hey Mom, La Luan etc, plus decent eateries and coffee shops on the same road, that is where the night time action is these days.

That’s where I go normally . Have not been to the strip in years . Decent live bands , I like Thai food , and the people tend to be happy . I can’t deal with sitting around sour faced people who have nothing better to do all day then moan 😀

You said yourself. It's not yourself that's going to kill you.

The improvements to infrastructure are a result of the massive industrial expansion that is already started in the area....yet the resulting pollution is still almost completely ignored.

^There isn't much expansion available in the Maptaphut area now. The new infrastructure is just to connect the existing industrial plants with Chonburi, Bangkok, Ayutthaya, etc.

Shock horror today in Ban Chang. 

A bar has reopened. As a bar no. As a ................7/11

The new in place will be the tables outside the 7/11 in the street of dreams.
