A good spot for backpackers, Pingjun has a number of cheap wooden huts on Thong Nai Pan Yai beach.
The old wooden affairs are pretty well worn and definitely not high-quality lodging -- a few look like they might blow over in the next big storm -- but most are passable and in a good location. Pingjun is also one of the friendliest spots on the beach and is very laid-back. Their super-relaxed beach restaurant is good value, serving up cheap Thai food and some basic western options. Cleaner, better-smelling rooms can be found elsewhere, but Pingjun remains very popular.
