My wife and I have just returned from a month’s vacation in Thailand that included visits to the two clothing optional resorts, one lonely 1.5 kilometer beach, a deserted island with a 500 meter white sand beach and crystal clear water, and a nude cruise.
There are places to go nude and get an all over tan in Thailand you just have to have the right information. I get mine from www.Thailandnaturist.com.
We stayed at www.ChanResort.com (which has been sold and is in the process of building a new resort). The resort is now called www.ChanTwinResort.webs.com. Chan Twin is continuing the policies of clothing optional in Pattaya, which is only an hour and a half from Bangkok.
We made this our headquarters for the month. Chan Twin Resort is a small 9 petite villa resort between Pattaya and Jomtien. It is run by the Chan Twin and really cares for the temperament of naturists.
You can be nude at the pool around your villa and going to and from the pool. There will be some folks with clothes on so you have to be a strong naturist. You cannot be nude in the eating area or office. You will need your towel or a Pakama (a short Thai sarong) which are nice and cheap and should cost less than 4 dollars.
We made a nude cruise to a deserted island from Pattaya on the 23 meter boat Edina. Where the boat anchored it was 10 meters deep water and was as clear as looking in a glass of water. Of course as soon as we were out of the port off came the clothes, some folks hit the sun deck, others the lounge, and a couple just sat in the fighting chairs and soaked up the rays. We swam to the beach we had a nice barbeque, then snorkeled and enjoyed ourselves on the beach.
We also made a day trip to Koh Larn Island and visited the clothing optional beach that is developing there. You can take a slow boat or a fast boat to the island and then a Songkaw Taxi to Samae Beach. Once at Samae Beach go to the most southern part away from the resort areas. There are two trees that will give you some shade. You can rent lounge chairs from the resort; they will charge you about 300 baht (less than ten dollars). If you get hungry put on a wrap and go to the resort, place your order and they will bring it to you. There is now another beach which we starting to use with nice big trees for shade.
Later in the month we rented a car in Pattaya (brought my own GPS with Thai chip) and drove to http://www.thai-bamboo.com in Cha Am. It is about 1.5 to 2 hour drive from Bangkok and is an easy drive. We planned to stay at Thai-Bamboo for 4 days and also visit Hua Hin where there is a lonely beach that one can spend the day on.
Of course we visited the lonely 1.5 kilometer beach in Cha Am. The beach is beautiful and the only place we have found Sand Dollars in Thailand.
The water here is much better than the beaches in Pattaya. Thai-Bamboo is out of town so a car is needed or you can arrange with Rudy the owner to get you there and back.
