Published by under Ko Pha Ngan

Time to fill your prescription?

Flip Flop Pharmacy is a fun bar with a catchy name and bright orange front is a great place to chill out on Ko Pha Ngan’s Thong Nai Pan Yai beach. The set-up is pretty typical of an island bar, though the hanging wooden chair swings dispersed throughout the bar are a unique touch. Flip … read the full post

Published by under Ko Pha Ngan

The perfect seat for cocktails

Ko Pha Ngan’s Bay Lounge and Resort is situated in its own private bay, but that certainly doesn’t make it secluded. The rooms, which are built up the side of a cliff, provide stunning views of Ko Samui. The entire resort’s decor, including that of the rooms, has a sort of Moroccan theme, and you … read the full post

How can you not love Haad Salad’s laidback Salad Hut, where the staff wear shirts saying “same shit, different day”? This funky place has a relaxed atmosphere that provides a great place to eat, then chill out, and then eat again, if you’re into that kind of thing. The food is among the best on … read the full post
