Guesthouses/ Beach Bungalows
Booming from the backpacker phenomenon of the 1970's, guesthouses offer superb value and charming memories for budget travelers. In Bangkok, these establishments are predominantly located on Khao San Road. In other major tourist cities and seaside towns, guesthouses and beach bungalows offer clean rooms and friendly service for a relatively cheap price, some as low as 100-400 baht per night. Some may have air-conditioned rooms and private bathrooms. Though the facilities may be basic, the quality of service has reputedly remained good. Beach bungalows may also be prone to insect invasions.
Mainly found in rural areas throughout Thailand not often frequented by foreign and Thai visitors, they are generally multi-story or a row of concrete blocks containing identical rooms with choice of either air-conditioned or fan. They generally offer basic facilities, most often equipped with squatting toilets, and lack eating facilities. Though cheap and clean, they may be the only option available, especially in the remoter parts of Central and Northeastern Thailand.
