Located a few kilometres to the north of town, Wang Phla is an interesting Thai-style resort that features a great seafood restaurant and several cottages built directly over a pond filled with many different kinds of fish.

It’s mainly geared to Thai clientele, so it’s probably not the best choice unless you speak a little Thai, and the somewhat remote location makes it necessary to have your own wheels. If you fit that bill, Wang Phla offers some outstanding value in a quirky but peaceful setting. Wood-walled cottages have a rustic feel but come with fridges, TVs, air-con and hot water bathrooms. Beds are on the small side but aren’t the rock-hard variety found in many Thai-style hotels. The biggest selling points are the porches that literally hover over the water -- perfect for lounging with a few beers and a seafood dinner ordered directly to the room (in case you don’t feel like walking over to the restaurant). The place gets packed and noisy on weekends with holidaying locals but is quite tranquil during the week. To get here, look for the sign off Rak Sak Chamun Road (on the right if coming from town), which has red Thai script and a picture of a jumping fish along with the resort’s phone number. Follow that sign, then hang a right just after the bright green apartment building, and then another right at the resort’s gates which are marked by another red sign with Thai script (but no fish).
