Tour Around the Amazing Chaloklum Koh Phangan

Chaloklum Koh Phangan
After few days of absorbing the beauty of Haad Salad we finally became the wise tourist and rented a motorbike for a few days. It cost us 150 baht per day, and you can find gas anywhere on the streets, people selling them for 40 baht per liter, great deal. The first area to explore was Chaloklum. Malibu beach as a part of the area was our favorite, unusual beach with mushroom-shaped trees and lots of fishing boats in the sea. You can realize its not the best tourist beach in Koh Phangan, and that’s one of the reasons we fell for it. The resorts around the area are various, you can spot a luxurious villas with pools and bars, rooms that costs over 1500 baht, and very poor looking bungalows for 300 baht a night, suitable for up to three people. This is one of the reasons many people stay here and the area in general developed to be one of the backpacker’s hot spot. There is numerous restaurants with cheap prices, jazz bar looking down the beach, and all you can eat BBQ that we found quite nice. If you search deep the area around you’ll find an amazing great houses up in the hills, not as expensive if you can actually find one available, people who stay here for more than 6 months and come here every year often occupy these. There is a 7eleven market where you can buy what ever you need to manage a household and plenty of bars to entertain yourself in the night. When the sun goes down the mosquitos are your only enemy, so if you wish to walk around safely in the night you better get one of that Tiger Balm they sell everywhere. It’s the cheapest (Thai) version of what ever you were used to use before.

What we learned:
Expensive doesn’t always mean the best.
