Farang Bar

A necessary evil

What we say: 2 stars

Farang Bar is more of a necessary evil than a guest house. It's near the station for the minivans to Ranong, so it's a cheap, convenient place to stay if you miss the last departure and have to stay overnight. They run a row of flop-house rooms, adequate to the purpose, mostly as a loss leader to get people into the bar/restaurant, which overcharges for everything. You can also get a discount on a room if you just need to crash for a few hours before catching the night boat. Showers are available for 20 THB, even if you're not staying here--towels are provided, just ask. They double as a travel agency, arranging tours and booking boat tickets. The enterprising owner, Mini, speaks English quite well.
