First time here when I was 22 in 2011. An incredible month with a group of mates (Bangkok, Pattaya, Koh Samet, Koh Chang, Koh Samui, Koh Phangan and Phuket). I knew pretty quickly into that trip I was moving here.

Fang is actually a pretty boring place. I hired a scooter and took my Thai GF on a loop from Chiang Rai through Mae Chan, Thaton, Doi Ang Khan, Fang, and Mae Suai, staying at hotels on the way. There was a very comfortable hotel behind the Tesco Lotus in Fang, stayed there two days. My GF refers to Fang as our honeymoon.

Where did you go?

Phuket, in 1983 before Patong was what it is today.

 

What was special about it?

It was beautiful, weather was great, few people, could walk on the beach with trees nearby for shade.  Food vendors along the small road.  It sure has changed over the past 36 years.

 

Who did you go with?

My Thai wife of one year who I had met in the USA where she was a grad student.  It was my first time to Thailand.

 

What did you do there?

Ate a lot of seafood on the beach.  Went to see a few sites on the island.

Chaolao Tosang Beach was pretty crowded yesterday because of the long weekend but it was still beautiful at sunset. As long as I have lived in Thailand this was my first time in Chanthaburi.

Yes on my 2 week holiday there the weekend had a few Thai families on the beach and banana boats going up and down the seashore. I think it was the time of year that maybe effected the tourism because October is jellyfish season and there was literally thousands of them in the sea. So maybe that puts people off going there then. The beach was empty during the week days.

 PS. That is why I get very sad (ok angry) when I find so many people on here "chaumping at the bit" to knock this wonderful country as often as they can.

  Can you blame people for wondering why they are here at all?

One can love something or someone, and yet criticize it or her, in a constructive manner of course. 

 

For example, if the woman you love starts playing dice and bet the house, you might get pissed, never mind your feelings for her... unless you have been completely brainwashed. 

 

Thailand, for its part, has made many dubious choices during the last 20 years, and foreigners who have lived through the changes, like myself, can be disappointed and sometime willing to vent their frustration. 

 

Now, that doesn't mean that it is better somewhere else since, thanks to globalization, all the countries are generally doing the same stupid things, more or less at the same time... for example, in this part of the world, doing their best to attract the hordes of Chinese tourists... 

 

Having said that, my best time in Thailand was in Phuket in August 1978.

 

At that time, only Rawaii was opened to tourism, the other beaches such as Kata or Patong were entirely free of constructions and visitors. 

 

There were no more than 10 foreigners at a time... James Bond island was as deserted as in the movie and the gipsy village in Phang Nga was catering to a single table of visitors at lunch time...those were the days of non-mass tourism...

Here's one of the jellyfish.20171023_092429.jpg
This local women went out in a little boat and caught a bucket load of them. I asked her why and she said she was catching them to eat. Maybe they fry them up like squid? I don't know. Lol
