    Hi I'm going to spend New Years on Koh Samui with some friends. I've stayed at Charlies Huts before but heard it was closing, does anyone know if it has?
    thanks

    Hi cass,

    yes just to confirm, Charlies is gone - to be replaced with an Amari resort I believe...

    Hi elda,

    Welcome to Travelfish!

    I'm editing our new coverage on Krabi town at the moment -- here's a couple of good spots we'll be adding to the site shortly:

    Chao Fah Valley Bungalows - An excellent option at a great price 8/10
    50 Chao Fa Rd, Krabi
    Tel: (05) 691 1201;(075) 612 499
    E-mail: chaina_ans66@hotmail.com
    The bungalows here are down in a small valley off the road. Unlike the hotel-style places next door, it offers a bit of nature with its accommodation -- we're told the occasional monkey can still be spotted swinging from the trees nearby. The bungalows are a bit charmingly aged on the outside, but inside they're of good quality for a wooden bungalow, and provide a woodsy atmosphere you wouldn't expect in this neighbourhood. All the bungalows come pre-equipped with an additional single bed, though a third person will cost a little more. The restaurant on site is large and great for hanging out, with an extensive menu served up by a friendly staff. An excellent option at a great price.
    Double Bungalow (two people) from 200B
    Double Bungalow (three people) from 250B


    Ban To Guest House - one of the newest and one of the best 8/10
    22/6 Chao Fa Rd, Krabi
    Tel: (075) 612 950;(09) 729 3546
    This place is just down the alley from the Chao Fah Guest House, but a spring running down the alley makes it mossy and hard to navigate, so it's better to arrive by going around the block. The guesthouse is brand new, bright orange, and the rooms are clean and colourful with good furnishings and very decent balconies. All the rooms have private baths with hot water. Downstairs there's an area for eating and hanging out that gives it a good guesthouse feel. Ban To is set in a peaceful spot, close to the edge of Krabi where things are still green. It may be one of the newest, but it's already one of the best guesthouses in Krabi.
    Prices:
    Double with fan from 250B
    Double with A/C from 500B

    There's a lot of other new listings, but the above two are probably the budget pics. It all should be on the site next couple of days.
