Set towards the end of a leafy road just southwest of Bang Nam Phueng, Py Aoy Longstay offers basic but comfy bungalows in a peaceful locale.
All wood bungalows come with air-con, mosquito nets, plenty of windows, TVs, basic hot water bathrooms and semi-private front porches that struck us as the perfect place to jot down some lines in a journal. Though the cheaper rooms in the front are fine, we'd go for the slightly more expensive versions out back, which are perched over a shallow pond and surrounded by lush foliage. Mosquitoes could be an issue here in the evenings, but the relaxed family who runs the place will offer mosquito coils. Free WiFi is available, as are bicycles for 50 baht per day. It's a short bike ride from Bang Nam Phueng market if you're here on a weekend, but Py Aoy does have a small cafe with a basic Thai food menu to those not wanting to venture out.
