Hang Jeng Guesthouse

A few hundred metres past Ban Thai down a sleepy lane near the river, Hang Jeng Guesthouse is another old-school spot with a fitting slogan: “Welcome with open arms”.


Photo of Hang Jeng Guesthouse We arrived to find the endearing elderly owner watching a mountain climbing movie with an older European guest. Wearing a seemingly permanent smile, he led us upstairs to check out a few of the 15 rooms opening onto large shared terraces with tables attached to all of the upper floors.

The first room that we checked out had a decent spring bed raised over parquet floors and a bunch of swing-open windows affording a view of the neighbourhood’s rusty metal rooftops -- it reminded us of a guestroom in an old Thai auntie’s house. Another room with a high ceiling features two entrances: one that opens onto a small loft overlooking the room from above and another down a flight of stairs from the main room that emerges on a veranda -- that's right, it's a three-storey room. Small shower rooms are attached to each guestroom but you’ll need to walk out into the hall to use the toilets and sinks. All rooms come with ceiling fans, air-con and hot water, and the air and water heater are switched off if you opt for the fan rate.

Hang Jeng is more of a laidback and homely place that lacks the services of nearby Ban Thai and TR and is not listed on booking sites. It certainly does not lack character, and the owner’s unguarded charm will stick with you.

Rising in the mid-13th century, Sukhothai laid down much of the cultural and political groundwork for the kingdom that eventually became known as Thailand. Towering monuments with exquisite details and well-documented records now make the ancient Thai capital a premier heritage destination. Even if the history doesn’t interest you, Sukhothai’s ruins do not fail to impress. This package of detailed travel guides covers Sukhothai along with the secondary sites at Si Satchanalai to the north and Kamphaeng Phet to the west. Further afield, it also includes guidebooks to Tak, Mae Sot and Umphang -- three destinations on the Burmese frontier that will appeal to those looking to getting right off the beaten trail.
