6 aug 11 khon kaen just arrived from Cambodia and I check my emails after a few days neglect, someone tried to use my credit card number in the US for something.

Jomtien Beach Review in Pattaya City, Thailand

Posted by tigsybart on 25/7/2011 at 08:47

I really like Jomtien. I wish the other parts of Pattaya were more like it. Sure, the beach is no Phi Phi but the restaurants and hotels in the area is definitely a more "wholesome" Pattaya. The beach walk is lined with restaurants that are more family-friendly, fresh seafood is served, and the restaurants are better suited for families and married couples as opposed to the cheap motels lining the other, more saturated beach in Pattaya (Pattaya Beach). The princess of Thailand has a ...

Janson (Jamsom) Bungalows Ko Phayam

Posted by tezza on 21/5/2011 at 21:03

Stayed March 2011. I'd always like the looks of Janson so I decided to stay there on my latest March 2011 visit to Phayam. It is built on the side of a low hill a bit south of mid-beach on Khao Kwai north beach. The rather nicely positioned multi level restaurant has good beach and bay views out to the Burma islands. Restaurant prices higher than average budget bungalow place, bit not ridiculous. Food good. Service quick. Reception staff a bit taciturn but efficient. The two dozen or so bungalo ...

Ko Phra Thong accommodation

Posted by tezza on 2/5/2011 at 19:07

Mr Chuoi's When I was doing research on accommodation the only budget beach place on the island I could find was run by Mr Chuoi (say Chewy). You can book his joint thru Blue Guru Diving's website, but I got super-helpful Am of TOM AND AM TOUR in Kuraburi who arranged my Surins transfers to ring him, book a bungalow and arrange the cheapest possible transport. The latter was important because I really couldn't afford the 1000+ each way my research had suggested. Mr Chuoi has a dozen Moken-style ...

Cashew Resort Little Ko Chang

Posted by tezza on 13/5/2011 at 19:57

Cashew on the northern half of Ao Yai was the first bungalow resort on the island, and is now the biggest with over 30 bungalows of varous styles and prices. Run by the obliging and attentive Mr Meow, it is spread over about 300m of beachfront with several rows of huts - but also has some cheaper options a good 200m from the beach in the jungle behind. Well they call it jungle - I’d class it as tropical beach scrub. Cashew is popular - all the places near the beach were taken so I got the jun ...
