April 23rd, 2019 Custom house Chumphon

We extended here our 30 days temporary import of the car with another 30 days. It is easier here than in Phuket customs, they refused it because we did not entered with a real Tourist Visa, but had the entry under 30 days visa exemption and extended that at immigration at Phuket. So we went to Chumphom customs, there it was no problem. We had no permits or guide.
Note: you first need to have your immigration extended, they never allow the car longer than your immigration stamp is valid!

July 25th, 2018 Seaside camp

Beautiful rocky coast strip with some small shell beaches. Many places to camp. Locals like it here too. Unfortunatly ther are a lot of empty bottle and cans, so select your place careful. no facilities, no internet except some spots very poor.

We paid 20 TJS per night for sleeping in our car, not using their shower. Dinner was not really good, plov with 3 pieces of chewy meat.

June 20th, 2018 Happy hostel

A real small family place. Fun to stay here. We could enter with our high van, because they can turn away the height bar. So no limitation of height.

Very good and relaxed. The daughter of the owner, Aze, speaks perfect english and french. Great pool to cool down in the hot season. 5us$ per person per night if you stay in own camper.

April 18th, 2018 Thakek Travel Lodge

Second time we where here. very nice staf. We stayed on the gras area, had our own shower and had some meals there. They charged 15.000 kip p.n., first they asked 50.000 kip p.n. , but I think it was a language problem.

April 18th, 2018 Bridge on road to Kong Lor cave

With some wooden beams they heightend it up till 3,00 meter.

April 18th, 2018 Flat grassy area

Here can't stay anymore, there is a school building on that place now.

February 13th, 2018 Koh Kong Beach

White sandy river beach yes, but full of plastic rubbish! We did not stay.

February 12th, 2018 Laem Klat

Fantastic quiet beach with shallow water. Plenty of shade from the tamarind trees. Access road had new gravel when we where there.

February 10th, 2018 Remote place right on the beach

Good place on the only strech of 50 meter without hotels, resaurants,etc. The nearest resort, Tropical Beach Resort, is rather expensive with food and drinks. When we where there it was buzy with tourists in all the resaurants.

February 6th, 2018 Namphapayai Camp

Nice area. Many climbers are coming here. Also kayaking and some hiking. The narrow access road may be a problem in the last kilometer for big rigs because leaning trees and low branches. Dog are not allowed, it will come to a fight with the very protective dogs they have here. Charge is 100 bath per person to camp. They make a good buffet.

February 2nd, 2018 Tonnam Guesthouse

They didn't allow us to stay with our motorhome on the parking without taking a room.

January 29th, 2018 Boat Landing Pai River HuaDuea

Start of the boat trips over the Pai River. Also trips to a Karen ("long neck") village. Parking beside the boat landing, small grasland. Big rigs can possibly not enter the small acces road. Explore by foot. No charges, toilets yes.

January 28th, 2018 Sor Tue Lake

Still a very good place. Now big cars can enter. Up to 3,5 m it should be no problem with the elektric cables.

January 26th, 2018 Kamphaeng Phet historical parc

Parking lot next to the Information centre and ticket boot. Quiet at night. Information centre is currently closed, but you can use the toilets in daytime if you ask at the ticket boot. Bycicles for hire.

January 25th, 2018 Tannam Resort Parking Lot

If you are looking for a place to stay and sleep in your own car, you can forget this Tannam Resort. We where just there and we could not stay. In fact they where quite unfriendly.

October 8th, 2017 Nirvana Guesthouse

Indeed a very friendly owner of Nirvana, we could stay on the parking. But later we where send away by an employe of the Sanctuary Nam Ngum Resort. One side of the parking island is now of the resort, the other side of Nirvana GH. So we moved 15 meters to the other side, but the guy from the Resort was not very friendly and tried to get rid of us completely, without succes.

October 1st, 2017 The Boat Landing Guesthouse - Luang Namtha

Camped in their beautiful garden. it was low season. We paid 7Us$ p.n. The resaurant has fantastic Lao food, order a few hours in advance so they can get all ingredients fresh from the market.

August 31st, 2017 Parking area between Shànhuà Temple and the City Wall

Parking convienient in the old city. If the guard is there you pay something to stay overnight.

July 27th, 2017 Orkhon river wild camping

the access road is small and steep, also narrow because of some trees. not good for big rigs.
