A few days Bang Saray

Looking over the fishing village Bang Saray in Thailand

We did stay a few days at the beach along the Eastern Seaboard of Thailand. An area not really famous for authentic Thailand or beautiful beaches. Actually more famous for Pattaya's nightlife, crowded tourism and industrial estates. But luckily there are still many small villages & beaches that are not eaten alive by modernization. The village of Bang Saray (also written as Bang Sare or Bang Sa-re) is such a place. Only 15 km south of Pattaya but a world of difference. There are a few simple hotels and a few western restaurants & bars, but for the rest it is still a Thai fishing village with a few local markets, temples and 2 active fishing piers. OK the beach may not be a "tropical white sandy beach with crystal clear water" but it is just a lovely rural Thai fishing village where in the afternoon school kids still go to the beach to meet each other. And where fishing boats lay ashore waiting for the night to fall to go fishing again. And at the fishing piers live goes on like it is going on for the past 20 years. The fish is sold and freshly served that evening in one of the seafood restaurants in the village or in nearby Pattaya. The young men starting to clean the boat & prepare for the next night of fishing. And just before sunset you can go eat in a small authentic Thai restaurant between the small wooden houses along the sea.
