Accommodation

Takua Pa

If you need to overnight in Takua Pa there are a few decent budget choices to choose from.


Ban Ton Ruk
Flashpacker - 600B to 1,500B

T: (076) 471 3634

A short ways past Ban Ton Ruk if heading away from the bus station, we found Friend House to be not so friendly, but it does offer decent budget accommodation that's suitable for an overnight and — wait for it — a big karaoke bar on site! Standards are set in a single floor motel style building that faces a parking lot. They're a little worn and musty, and could be cleaner, but they do have...
