Which Are The Top 4 Budget Hotels in Kawthaung?
Once you’ve completed the Ranong to Kawthaung border crossing, you’ll need to find somewhere to stay.
Here at DIY Travel HQ, when I visited in 2014, there were only 4 hotels which foreigners could stay at in Kawthaung:
- Honey Bear is on the waterfront
- Penguin is a few streets back
- Garden is several more streets away, a little far off
- Kawthaung is on the other side of town, uphill on the main road
Penguin is definitely the newest and cleanest of all 4 budget hotels, with the best location and value, especially for solo travelers.
There are a number of things to do in Kawthaung but for now let’s take a look at the 4 budget hotels in Kawthaung in a little more detail…

The young staff are accommodating – they gave me watermelon and band-aids, spoke some English and moved me from the loud frog room.
Oh yes, DO NOT get a room facing the street or you may be kept awake ALL NIGHT from INCREDIBLY LOUD CROAKING FROGS (in the rainy season anyway) – I have never had a sleepless night like it, a true test of patience!
