As I entered the city of Chumpon I was looking for a place to stay because I needed to break up my ride to the north. The city looked pretty uninspiring to me so I decided to move on a bit. On my gps I saw a small string of hotels right at the beach 20 km north of Chumpon. And that is how I ended up in Thung Wua Laen, by far the nicest stay I had so far in Thailand. Thung Wua Laen is developed for tourism but not to the extent of the big beach resorts like Phuket or Pattaya. It mainly caters to Thai tourism so you see hardly any Westeners around. I found a nice little beach hut where I had a perfect stay for a couple of days.
