Bai Fern Guesthouse

The long-running Bai Fern Guesthouse looked more rundown than on our previous visit but remains a reasonable option for solo backpackers seeking the cheapest beds in town.

Photo of Bai Fern Guesthouse Set just back from the Bai Fern Restaurant in the centre of town, the guesthouse is fronted by a bamboo table and rental bicycles parked in a sparse roofed common area. Step inside and you’ll see some maps before the English-speaking Burmese owner pops out to greet you. He was quick to show us the rooms, all relying on small shared bathrooms situated on the ground floor -- hot-water heaters are provided but they didn’t look to be in good working order. The cheapest rooms are tiny wooden boxes with rough spring beds, threadbare linens, wall-mounted fans and windows facing the hallway; these can get darn hot. Climb the narrow stairway to find much-larger air-con rooms with two single beds, multiple windows and splotchy dark-blue paintjobs.

The building has seen better days but we didn’t notice any obvious grime or cobwebs. Even so you’ll find better double rooms for similar rates at several other places, so Bai Fern is really only worth considering if you’re a solo traveller on a shoestring budget.

Get your Sukhothai & surrounds guide now!

 Just A$7.00
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.
