Hi New Pattaya team, it’s me again 🙂

Today I finished work a little bit earlier than usual and therefore had some more time, which – I have to admit – I originally wanted to dedicate to my wife. But when I came home I found out that my wife went shopping with her friends – Thepprasit Market! I guess I don’t have to say anything more 🙂

So I had won a few hours time for myself, which I spent mainly reading some of your older articles. I found that you are a big fan of Bang Saray. I have to say, that I am a big fan of this small fishing village as well.

There are many reasons why I like that village:

1. The beach is very clean (except if there has been a storm the night before – that would wash up a lot of garbage from Pattaya and the Islands). I have a feeling, that the local business owners in Bang Saray (mainly the restaurant owners) have their staff cleaning up the beach every morning before they open their businesses. I have no proof for that, but I cannot imagine any other reason, why this beach is so much cleaner than Jomtien beach, I don’t even dare to compare it to Pattaya beach. Maybe something the New Pattaya team can investigate 🙂

2. Almost zero sun shades/umrellas which are an eyesore in Pattaya and Jomtien. The beach is completely covered by Palm Trees which form hundreds of natural sun shades. Only very, very rarely the restaurant owners would put up their sun shades/umrellas. Usually only when it starts raining.

3. No tourists! Believe it or not, Bang Saray beach is free of tourists. The usual guests of Bang Saray beach are Thai families. Of course you can also see Farangs there, but they are usually residents and married to Thai (like me).

4. The prices in Bang Saray! Due to the visitors of Bang Saray are mainly Thai, the prices at the restaurants, the jet ski rentals (REMARK: SCAM FREE), banana boats etc. are very moderate (and no double pricing at all!). The highest bill I ever had was 1,800 THB at Ben’s Seafood, but that was for 6 adults including beer, coke, water, 5-6 main dishes (such as fresh crab (something like 12 pcs), prawns (something like 15 pcs), a bowl of fresh mussles on ice, fresh fish baked in a salty crust etc.). We spent a whole Sunday afternoon (appr. 3 hrs) there, just eating, drinking, enjoying a fresh breeze and the beautiful sea. This is something you cannot do in Jomtien or Pattaya.

5. Silence. Bang Saray beach has a very narrow beach road with just one lane in each direction. There are no parallel streets, no streets crossing, no Soi’s, no hotels, no taxis (no Baht Taxis, no motorbike Taxis) … on one site of the beach road you have the beach, on the other side of the road are the restaurants – that’s it. The restaurants serve their food right on the beach. They will put a sort of blanket on the beach, put a small table on top and here you are … your dining table for the day/afternoon. The only noise which you will hear from time to time is the engine of a motorbike or the jingle of the ice cream vendor.

6. NOW MY INSIDER TIP to all those who are married to Thai ladies! You probably know and have experience the problem yourself: Thais usually don’t like to go to the beach. Main reason being the sun and the fact that they prefer a white skin over the slightest complexion. BUT, you also know, that Thais love food. Especially Seafood. So now add one and one and et voila: Bang Saray beach is the solution. Beatiful beach, plenty of shade, amazingly good Seafood, no tourist and reasonable prices! My tip for all: Try Ben’s Seafood which would be the very first ‘restaurant’ on the left, when you are heading from ‘Le Beach Home’ village towards Bang Saray pier or ‘Talay Sawan’ village. Very friendly staff, always fresh Seafood (catch of the day), nice and clean beach and good prices. But be warned: The kitchen is Thai style and more street-vendor-like (self build kitchen with gas cookers). You cannot compare equipment, chefs and cleanliness with Western standards!

Best regards, XXXXXXXXX

Firstly, where do you get all your information?? …….. You must work day and night.
I love reading your web site, it is packed with real estate info that no one else knows/prints and you back it up with FACTS.
Thank you and keep up the GREAT WORK.

COMMENTS: Hi dear New Pattaya Team (little girl and her Dad),
my name is XXXXXXXX. I am XX years old, working in XXXX XXXXXXX and living in Pattaya since XX years. I am married to my Thai wife since X years. We are planning to have a little baby girl as well, hopefully within the next 2 years (before we are getting too old :-)). We have recently bought our first house, or let’s say, we have ordered it. It will take another XX months until it will be finished. I would like to thank ‘New Pattaya’, because we’ve heard, or better say we’ve read about the housing project on your website. I have to say, I have passed the project many times on my way to the office, but never really took notice of it. But when I read about it on your website, I thought: Stop, that looks and sounds familiar. And yes, it was the one which I have passed so many times, for months, every single morning. The name is ‘XXX XXX XXXXXXXX’. We have bought the ‘XXXX XXXXXXX’ two storey, 3 bedroom/3 bathroom house, basically the largest available type. We have ordered in the last phase of the project, therefore we have to wait another XX months until our house will be finished. But I am pretty sure the waiting will be worth it. Because our plot is in the last phase, just beside XXX XXXX XXXXX, we have the more quite location inside the project, a bigger garden and only neighbors to the left and to the right. No more houses XXXXXXXXXX. Our house, or perimeter wall respectively, basically XXXXXXXXXXXX. I hope it will stay that way and we don’t have any new Condo complex starting with construction behind our house (since this area becomes more and more popular with developers, due to the cheaper land prices). I have to say, that the quality of the houses is not more than the typical Thai standard (same like Ratanakorn, Sirisa, Classic, Central Park, Baan Balina etc.), but the location is great (perfect for people living in Pattaya, but working in Eastern Seaboard) and the prices are reasonable and o.k. for young families who cannot afford the 10 Mio +++ THB range villas. Frankly speaking, even the more expensive 10 Mio +++ THB villas are not more than standard Thai quality. Usually they also build in skeleton technique with concrete poles and then fill up with walls of just 7.5 cm Q-Con. Also the roofing is the same with just silver foil for insulation and standard C-Pac roof tiles. Nothing different from XXXX XXXXXXXX. Anyway, that’s not the point and not the reason why I write this email. I simply want to thank you for the good work and the reports you publish here. Although we have ordered our house already and have stopped searching for a new home, I am still following your blog because of pure interest. Thanks and keep up the good work, XXXXXXXXX

16 April 2013:

On we have David Strachan commenting on, I need to reply but am not able to post comments. David Strachan said: “I read a lot of this also, very confusing. Mercedes Benz are ultra luxury, if you pay more than 5M Baht then you are likely to be getting a luxury car. Some of the Mercedes I have been in I would not have owned,even as a company car. They then go on to describe a Pattaya Condo, which I have spoken with many resident that live in it, who would definitely not describe it as A+. I think a very subjective and inaccurate report overall. To say someone is flooding the market with low priced condos, is like saying Kia (replace with Skoda, Hyundai, Tata) are spoiling the car market by producing cheap cars. The developers put their name to each development, so who are the “someone”. Obviously someone has put a lot of work into this site, but it is spoiled by these inaccuracies.”

1) A new expensive mercedes benz is considered to be a luxury car, really no point in arguing about that.
2) A Pattaya Condo that is Grade A+?? Very confusing, David, we don’t have a Grade A+ in Pattaya. Please read the text once more, you must must have misunderstood something.
3) The market is being flooded with relatively cheap condos, the price is not the issue, the great NUMBER is the issue. We have NEVER had such a large number of new condos on the market here in Pattaya. And that’s a fact.
4) Sir, there are no inaccuracies, I am stating facts, nothing else.
5) Boy, I surely did get some information here.
