Price of sun cream in Ko Chang / Thailand

Posted by Jleef on 20/1/2010 at 13:29

Am staying at Lonely Beach at the moment and finding that a decent sized bottle of sun cream is around 500B. I know the stuff is expensive but I'm just wondering - can I expect to pay this sort of money every where in Thailand, or do the 7/11s or the island itself have a price hike on the stuff? I know it's an essential but I can imagine it putting a dent on my budget at this rate =) ...

Posted by kenyb21 on 19/1/2010 at 15:27

Hi, all: New to Travelfish and my sister and I have a question regarding bungalow accommodations while traveling in Thailand. Our current concern is that we really like the looks of a few places on Koh Lipe, but we can't seem to find if the resorts will accommodate us with two twin beds rather than one double bed. We're not keen on sleeping in the same bed together and we're hoping not to be limited to staying in "family" sized rooms which are usually much more expensive. Has anyone been ...
