Ban Huai Yang is a cosy little fishing village where you always meet happy and smiling Thais in a quiet and rural environment, 200 miles south of Bangkok and 250 miles north of Phuket. The fishing in the village starts after sunset, between six and seven, when the sea is filled by the light from the lanterns of the fishing boats. The village has no hotel and is genuine and relatively unexploited, apart from the small tourist villages that's scattered around the area. The never ending beach is free from hordes of tourists and apart from an occasional tourist outside one of the few resorts and the children that usually come down after school and dive from the pier, you can have the beach almost entirely for yourself
