Cheapest huts on Bulon

If you're after cheap, simple and secluded, look no further than Jungle Huts.
Halfway along the forested trail to Mango Bay, the huts are a great bargain so long as you don't mind the long walk to Bulon's main beach. Facing one another in two lines set up between some greenery, the bamboo bungalows with tin roofs are solidly built upon concrete foundations and have small porches with a plastic chair or two. All bungalows have attached bathrooms built out of bricks with bucket-flush Western toilets, tiny sinks and cold showers. Inside you'll find firm mattresses and mosquito nets draped over the linoleum-covered floors, but little else apart from a window and more of those snowy New England scene tables that also found their ways into Chao Le Homestay. There are no fans, but since electricity is limited to a few hours at night it doesn't really matter. A small restaurant has a very limited menu (fried rice or fried noodles?) and the woman who greeted us spoke virtually no English. Overall the Jungle Huts represent great value for shoestring budget travellers.
