Welcome to Bang Saen Beach.
For decades Had Bang Saen has been the favorite weekend getaway resort for Thai people. Located 85 km south of Bangkok, just 45 minutes drive from the Suvarnabhum airport via Highway nr. 7. You will not find hordes of tourists in this charming village, instead, during the weekends and holidays, you will find this sleepy village transforming into a social Hotspot for Thai nationals. Farmers from the north-east sharing the same beach with Bangkok high-rollers, drinking whiskey, making music, practice dancing and, even, swimming in the Gulf of Thailand. Here, in this slow-paced environment, where even today a foreigner is something 'odd' , you can let go of your western rush and just relax, or ease out in one of the ever changing restaurants in Bangsaen. During the night you can find several restaurants are open on beachroad between soi 1 and soi 2

During the nights, especially saturdaynight, the local youth takes over the beachroad..... hopefully the police will keep them at a slow pace .The complete Northern area will be used as circuit, right on the doorstep of hotels, guesthouses.
