Koh Phra Thong Lions Homestay

Lions Village (or Baan Lions) consists of rows of newer, modern homes solidly built on concrete stilts at Ko Phra Thong's northern tip.

Photo of Koh Phra Thong Lions Homestay It replaced an old village known as Pak Chok, which was sadly washed away in the 2004 Tsunami. The new name comes from the fact that donations from Lions Club International Foundation made the construction of a new village possible. Many of the homes have either never been filled or were abandoned when the village could no longer sustain a school, and the uninhabited section has an eerie, forgotten feel. Closer to the pier, however, many of the homes are lived in by locals, as well as workers and volunteers for the non-profit turtle conservation group, Naucrates, and in this section the village has an interesting mix of people and a cheerful, welcoming atmosphere. The rooms are modern and clean but simple with firm beds draped in mosquito nets, small desks, and basic cold water bathrooms with squat toilets. Rooms are also very cheap but three meals a day will run 380B, although it's worth it since local people love to impress visitors with the quality (and quantity) of their authentic foods. Overall the whole experience is offered for a very reasonable price. Lions Village is right next to the northern pier, although a ten minute walk to the beach, and it's possible to rent bicycles and motorbikes here.
