Over on the north east coast, the fishing village of Ao Salad does now have a couple of places to stay.
From its excellent vantage point over the bay, the aptly named Ao Salat View offers standard a/c bungalows, with prices ranging from 1,000bt to 1,300bt.
On the pier itself, Dutchman Fishing Tours has a handful of a/c wooden floored rooms at 800bt a night.
There is one other resort in this area, Koh Kood Island, but it is only booked for Thai packages.
As an area to stay, Ao Salad will give you a fascinating glimpse of a local Thai fishing village. Beyond that, however, it is limited in its attractions, with just a couple of dining options on the pier and not much else going on. For the beach, you will need to head over to the west coast, some 20km or more, either by renting a motorbike or chartering a local songthaew taxi.
