Not long now until we visit this beautiful resort for the first time.
Looking forward to beautiful meals onsite but also looking forward to exploring other local places. Have enjoyed looking at everyone's reviews.
Just wondering how safe it is (from traffic really) to walk to places such as John's Garden / walking market etc
From google maps it looks ok but just thought I'd ask those who have been :)
Mostly safe but the state of the pavement / sidewalk is very variable and expect lots of wobbly slabs, missing gully covers and large drops so take your time especially in the dark.
walking is no problem and safe. also you can walk along beach to get to the walking market.
There are sort of pavements, and if no pavements, just walking single file is fine! Spices Cafe, Babu's Indian, Nanas bar, and the Burger bar are all easy to get to and are great places to eat. Have a great stay.
John;s Garden has gone I think. Market walk is fine in Maenam. I guess when walking anywhere stay off the roads. as the bikes are quick and you won't see them coming
