These days it’s more common to hear a westerner speaking Thai than you might think. Thai isn’t as difficult as Thai people make it out to be, a year of study a year of practicce and you could speak good […]

A video uploaded by Australian man claims he was subject to assault and police corruption after being stopped by police. He claims they asked for 1000 baht for not wearing a helmet when in fact he was wearing one. None of […]
There are a lot of people who claim fluency in the language, but there are degrees of fluency and just because someone is fluent doesn’t mean they claim to know everything about the language. I’ve been in Thailand 7 years […]
I read all the time how much money people are spending in Thailand and the argument over how much money you need to live in Thailand ends up being the same as how long is a piece of string? The […]
If you’ve lived in Thailand long enough 99.9% chance that you have been scammed. You may not even realize or know that you’ve been scammed either. Because Thai people are great at fooling you, even making you believe it was […]
As far as rap battles go this one is as good as i’ve seen (maybe it’s because the chick is hot), though the weired sounding “yo’s” thrown out kinda throws the whole thing out as does the 5 minute limit […]
Information about Ao Nang Thailand
Ao Nang is a beautiful place in Thailand. It’s a calmer place than the party islands like Phi Phi Islands, Koh Samui and Ko Pangang. If you are looking for nightlife, there is a square near the beach with bars and nightclubs, many with live show music entertainment. At the square there is a two floor building with bars on the roof. At the roof balcony you have a nice view over the sea.
Ao Nang – Perfect place to enjoy massage
Along the beach walk there are several massage places. The staff is very friendly and greet you with a smile. You will be able to choose from foot massage, back massage full body massage, Aloe Vera massage, coconut oil massage with more. The price is 300 Baht for one hour of massage. If you need a break from the intense sun, then visit them in the early afternoon when they have “Happy Hour”. You will get one hour of massage for half price, 150 Baht.
Food and eating out in Ao Nang
During out stay in Au Nang we ate street food near our hotel. A nice lady cooked hot curries with lots of spices. We needed to drink lots of Chan or Singha beer to put out the burning fires in our mouths. The food was great and we paid 50 baht for the meal. Never ever did we get sick, even though out butts would burn after going to the loo.
If you like Sushi there is a nice restaurant about 1 km from the main crossing at the beach. If you face the sea and have the nightclub and bar square behind you then keep walking right. You will find it on the right side after a few minutes. Eating sushi is far more expensive than eating local food. But the Sushi was good and you don’t see it that often so we took the opportunity.
Wifi and internet in Ao Nang
One great thing with Thailand is the access to free wifi more or less wherever you are. At the restaurants at the beach you will be able to access free wifi and do your Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and email errands.
Nathan road is the place for shopping electronics. iPads, iPhones, cameras, objectives. You find it all here for good prices. A warning! Watch out when the sales people suddenly recommend something you didn’t think of buying and the price tag says e.g. 8500 HK$. Before you know it, the salesman can offer it to you for 6500 HK$ only today. Efter a few minutes the price is at 5000 HK$ and you might think you are getting something for a bargain. Think again, it is easy to get carried away.
Nathan Road is also the place for plenty of jewelry stores. You will find a variety of gold and silver jewelry and diamonds. I have no experience in dealing with the sales people so I would recommending talking to someone you know who have made a purchase and was happy and content with the product.
At the end of Nathan Road you reach the harbour where there are several ferries passing by, lit up by plenty of colorfull lightbulbs. See the photo below.
