Welcome to Bang Saphan
Take a tour off the beaten track, and come for a visit in Bang Saphan, an undiscovered pearl on the coast of the Thai Gulf. Finding your way here is easy, you can travel by train, take the bus or fly from Bangkok. The distance to Bang Saphan is approximately380km from Bangkok and merely 180 km from Hua Hin. The prices are still cheap (no tourist prices) and you can explore the beautiful surroundings and attractions.
Our most popular beach is called Suan Luang and means “the Royal garden” or “the Superior garden”. The coastline is spectacular and stretches as far as the eyes can see. The beach is white and sandy and suits for families with children too.
Enjoy a boat tour to the beautiful island Koh Talu. The water is so transparent so it actually reminds of the Phi Phi islands or some other popular snorkling destinations.
Wat Tum Marong Caves
Visit the bats inside the deep caves of Wat Tum Marong. The temple is beautiful, and you’ll discover hundreds of Buddha images throughout the passages.
Bars & Restaurants
There’s a few bars and restaurants along the beach of Suan Luang. There’s also a few restaurants in a bit further back from the seaside.
