Listing the bars of Ban Chang

  one ban chang I visited Ban Chang once again.

On the stretch Pattaya-Sattahip I have seen white bahtbuses and on the stretch Sattahip-Rayong orange ones. Near Sattahip I have also seen a yellow and a light green one. On the stretch Pattaya-Rayong I have seen several white minibuses with a lot of Thai text on them zigzagging from left to right and from right to left, which seemed to be some kind of regular service.

Some bars on the Ban Chang strip were completely lacking girls (Happy Beer Bar 2) or looked deserted (Rainbow Bar), whereas other bars had about ten girls, including the odd ladyboy.

All Ban Chang girlie bars seem to apply the same price structure: bottled Heineken 80 baht, lady drink 90 baht, barfine ST or LT 300 baht (if ST usually room included). Ladies' fees up to 1,000 baht ST, up to 1,500 baht LT.

I compiled an up-to-date survey of all bars, pubs and hotels on the Ban Chang strip , arranged by location:

Soi Tessaban 25 west side (from south to north):

  • The Camel Pub : pub with bar, dining room, food shop and guesthouse, rooms at 550 baht, breakfast included

An alternative bar area in a small town 45k from Pattaya

camel ban change Ban Chang is the first village in the province of Rayong when following Sukhumvit Road via Sattahip in the direction of Trat (near the Cambodian border), about 45 kilometres from Pattaya.

As opposed to the Dark Side, the bars at Bang Chang are concentrated in a small area known as the "strip". The strip is located on Soi Tessaban 25 at the left side of Sukhumvit Road at the first traffic lights in the province of Rayong. The strip begins at about 250 metres into Soi Tessaban 25 at The Camel Pub on the left-hand side, is about 200 metres long and ends at the Offshore Pub, also on the left-hand side.

There are also a number of bars on the right-hand side now and in some side sois.

Life goes at a leisurely pace at Ban Chang (unless there is an organised bar crawl, I guess). Nevertheless you should take care when crossing the road.

More information is available at www.banchangbars.com/

Although I hate the drive, I have always had very satisfying LTs at Ban Chang, last time in February 2014. There are crappy rooms with crappy furniture accessible by also crappy stairs at The Camel Pub at 550 baht, but I prefer by far the standard rooms at 400 baht at the Banchang Grand Hotel , only 150 metres past the strip, also on the left-hand side.

The Banchang Grand Hotel (What is in a name ?) has very clean and spacious rooms with new furniture, very friendly staff (albeit with poor English), a car park in front and a lift; I have no idea how big the "big rooms" at 800 baht are.

The typical pub grub at The Camel Pub is acceptable however. The Camel Club has a food shop and a dining room with tables and chairs, but you can also eat seated on stools.

Most (if not all) bars at Ban Chang have an outside area (terrace) where most girls are sitting (and eating) and an (air-conditioned) inside area.

Bottled beers are in general less than 100 baht, barfines 300 baht LT and ST; ST rooms are included in the barfine at most places.

Most girls are in the 20-35 years age bracket (which is, on average, younger than at the Dark Side) and are happy with up to 1,000 baht ST and up to 1,500 baht LT, but some (usually MacDonald's style) newcomers try to charge more, citing prices at Walking Street.

The best experiences I have had at the bars on the "old" left-hand side of the strip (when coming from Sukhumvit Road, i.e. the west side).
