This message is being sent from Maya Resort Hotel which is a 10 minute taxi ride from both. Not much English spoken but lots of smiles & reasonable value at around 40-45 of your American Dollars per night.
Wat Pah Nanachat will also allow short stay visitors on full monastic discipline. You may know this is involves sleeping on a mat, a 3am start & one main meal a day.
There is a small women's section but not sure about visitors there.
These places are obviously not designed for casual tourism. To enquire about staying they expect application by snail mail. That said I arrived unannounced as a day visitor & was very warmly received by the guest monk & others.
Preferably white clothing covering knees & shoulders is obligatory particularly for the evening meeting c6pm
I hope that helps. Plenty more information on request.
