    If you got to Tong Nai Pan Noi on Koh Pha Ngan, and you should, beware of Again Again.
    It's a super friendly looking place serving food and renting motorbikes, but unfortunately the man is a total crook. Everybody in the village knows this, but off course I walked right into the trap.
    Rented 3 motrobikes, had a nice trip to Thong Sala, returned the bikes and then the nightmare started...
    He was accusing me of damage done to the bike (yeah I know, I should have checked the bike better) and kept hold of my passport. Even told me that he gave it to the local police which in the end turned out to be total BS.
    Only after mediation of the Baan Panburi management I got my passport back a day later after paying 1500 BHT for the "damage"
    It's a shame this guy does this, and according to the stories, he does so all the time.
    So my advice is to walk around this man and his Again Again place.
    Luckily there are plenty of other nice places in Tong Nai Pan Noi. We had a great time here after 8 years.
    Off course it has changed and is changing, but so far, it's still a really nice hide-out.

    I would say 1500 baht is pretty cheap for a wake up lesson .

    And think yourself lucky if this your biggest ""NIGHTMARE"" while travelling .
