New Siam Guesthouse - (located at a side street of the Soi Rambuttri) A nice Guesthouse with fair prices. Well located and not loud. Clean rooms, always fresh beds and everything


Chatuchak Weekend Market - For now the best market I saw on my travels! They have 15.000 stands which makes it to the biggest market in this form worldwide! From used clothes from the past, to new designer stuff from local designers, flowers, ceramics, caved stuff - almost everything you can imagine. You can easily reach it with the public transport. Prefer the train, cause the bus needs a long time in the traffic!


China Town - Very impressive to go there and specially the food is very good! So be hungry when you get there! Located close to the Hua Lamphong trainstation.


Dickinsons Club - A little club in Berlin style. Good drinks and a super owner. Highclass lineup from time to time. :)




Koh Phangan (Haad Tjen, Haad Yuan, Why Nam)

First of all - leave the main part of the island and go to the southes part with a boat taxi. Here you find the three beaches Haaad Tjen, Haad Yuan and Why Nam. This is in my opinion the place to be on Koh Phangan.


Thong Sala Food Market - Here you can literaly eat yourself over the hole market. Small portions alow you to test everything a little bit. The fruit shakes have nice variations and even the sushi was perfect!


Sanctuary Yoga class -  Ben makes his classes every day beside Sunday at 10:30 at the Sanctuary. Was a very nice class for beginners. Also some experienced people enjoyed it. So I would say yoga for everyone. :) 350 bath per class.


Guys Bar  - A very nice club with great music and a nice location. Fridays in the season they have parties. Entry was 400 bath which is good value!


Barcelona Guesthouse - Very nice guesthouse for around 700 bath a room for three persons.


Bamboo Hut - The food there is very good. Try the red snapper and for sure a mocca shake! One of the best shakes I ever had so far! :D


Big Blue -  No clue about the rooms, but the prices where cheap. What you have to do is eat the best panang curry there and have a mars or a snickers shake. To play pool there is for free. :)


Eden Bar - A every day location to have some music. Under the week the Dj is not a Dj at all, but the tracks where okay and the drinks good. Saturday is Eden day! There with good Dj's.


Ocean Rock - Not the cheapest but a nice view there. The best thing there is Pete, the legend bartender! A very nice man! :)


Koh Tao

Ban's Diving - Biggest dive center in the world. Nice place, cheap and professional diving and I liked that they always spoke about keeping the under water world "we are only visitors, so don't touch something!". My dive instructor was Marcel Becker. Book your dive over: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to do him a favor!


Coffee Boat Restaurant - Nice restaurant with good prices. Nothing special but a good value for the money. Thai food, which is rarely on Koh Tao :P


SB Cabana II Guesthouse - Nice and cheap rooms for 8 Euro you get a big double room with fan on the Siree Beach. Also bungalows are available.
