The Nong Porn owner's daughter, Ms Nan is the manager & speaks half-decent English. She will run customers into town for dinner & pick us up. She may well even join us for drinks & dinner.

Room prices for all 3 are 450 - 600 baht (from memory.)

For those who have not spent time in Pong before

BTW there are no bar beers, night clubs or karaokes in Pong. It is an old traditional town.
But I don't doubt we can make merry at the Yom River Cafe for happy hour, plus the Krua Muang Pong, which has fantastic food.
The Nong Porn resort also has a magic sunset deck & view

Be warned booking a room at the Pim Fah is seriously tricky if you dont speak fluent Thai.

The Pong City dinner February 2021.
An interesting & enjoyable night with everyone sufficiently impressed - the food at the Krua Muang Pong & especially the guys at the Nong Porn Resort.
With limited accommodation options in Pong, riders stayed at 4 different establishments, a couple of places in town & a couple of places out on the highway.
The guys staying at the Nong Porn started happy out there & the guys staying at the Pim Fah hit the Rim Yom for happy hour.

The fabulous Nong Porn ladies - and what a cool fun gang they are. Super!

Dinner got underway at the Krua Muang Pong & there's not doubt we overwhelmed the place on the night. However the food was excellent, huge servings & we succeeded in running some of the beer stock out. It was an entertaining, fun night appreciated by all. And I believe some guys are definitely going back for more food & another visit to Pong city.
