Payung Guesthouse

Set on a compact block between the beach road and the mangroves, Payung is a backpacker favourite in Cherating, with a selection of well kept bungalows running back in two rows from the travel agency cum reception that faces onto the road.

All of the bungalows have attached bathrooms. Simple furnishings include a simple bed and mosquito net along with each bungalow having a small veranda. Free WiFi is also available on site. Payung has the most proactive travel agent in town and they can organise everything from kayak hire and boat trips to bus tickets. Note they do not take reservations by email or phone; you need to book through their website. In high season or public holidays, booking ahead would be a good idea.
