Ranong Accomodation/Food

Posted by Hayley2013 on 17/10/2012 at 05:13

Hi there,

I am spending the night in Ranong in mid January, in order to catch the ferry the next morning to Koh Phayam. Can anyone reccomend a nice place to stay, not too far from the ferry pier? Also any decent eating spots to grab some dinner?

Also, as someone who suffers from sea sickness/bit nervous on boats - are the speedboats very bumpy? I'm more inclined to go for a ferry, as from previous experiences in Thailand they were quite sturdy most of the time, unless ofcouse the water was particularly choppy. Haven't been on a speedboat in Thailand so just curious to know how bumpy they are?

Thanks,
Hayley x

Hi Hayley,

Much of what you're after is covered in our Ranong coverage -- enjoy Ko Phayam !

The Tindee hotel (formerly Royal Princess) is a nice hotel.
It was about 1500 baht a night a few years ago. It has a gym, swimming pool, sauna. It is on the road towards the pier. You can jump on a songthaew (pick up truck bus) and get to the pier.

Food wise, Pon's hideaway is nice, but relatively far away from the pier, nearby is the Sir Dol Pub, which has live bands.

There are no speedboats to Ko Phayam, unless you rent a longtail boat for just yourself.
The ferry is okay, takes 2-3 hours. Take some water, food, as there is none available on the boat.
