Get around

If you want to get to Lang Suan, trains from Bangkok stop at Lang Suan and it is a nine hour ride from Bangkok to Lang Suan and another nine hours back. You could also take a non-air-con bus from the Southern Bus Terminal (Ekamai) on Pinklao–Nakhon Chaisi Rd that leave daily at 07:20, 10:50, and 23:50.



Lang Suan is a haven for those who want to get in touch with nature. There are several tourist destinations in the area where people can relax and get away from the hubbub of the busy city life. If you are into parks, you may want to visit Somdej Phra Srinkarin Chumphon. Spelunking is an option for those who want to visit Khao Ngoen and Khao Kriab caves. Or, if you want to experience the sea, Lam-son Beach and Khor Khao Beach are places you can go. There are fishing communities in the district which can be found on Phithak Island and in Lang Suan.





Lang Suan offers only a few places to stay at. There is Jane Hotel at 127/5 Khao Ngoen Rd with only 29 rooms. Along Lang Suan Rd, there is Khan Ngoen, Lang Suan Hotel, and Thai Charoen. Also Chumphon's 99 Bay Resort at 9 Moo 4, Pak Nam.

  • Thawat Hotel (central Lang Suan near the market stop light 3-way intersection). Has many rooms. Motorbike taxis nearby.
