Beautiful beaches close to tropical nature among very friendly people

Total Page Views for KhaoLak: 278,360 - Views this week: 278,360
The Museum Khao Lak 25 is under development by the initiators Franky, Richard and Tony in order to commemorate Khao Lak's 25th anniversary. The museum is situated in Bang Niang between Honda and TMB Bank, opposite of the Saxophone Cafe.
The museum will show the history of tourism in the Khao Lak region. Many hotels, restaurants, tour agencies, dive centers and other businesses of Khao Lak will display their history since the year 1987, when the first tourist business, the Khao Lak Bungalows, was opened in Khao Lak. Other historical artifacts, maps, pictures and documents will also be presented in the 50 square meter exhibition room. 
In a separate room on the upper floor the Tsunami Exhibition honors the efforts of the Khao Lak people and their friends to reconstruct Khao Lak in the year following the disastrous Tsunami of December 2004. Original documents show the help of the true friends of Khao Lak, help by means of donations for specific Tsunami victims and by goods that alleviated the severe pain of effected Khao Lak residents. 
The museum guides can give explanations in Thai and English. They also sell water and soft drinks. At a counter in front of the museum competent staff gives information about the many attractions in the Khao Lak area. They can also arrange a taxi for visiting Tsunami related memorials and other attractions. 
Entrance fee is 25 Baht only for the Khao Lak 25 Exhibition and another 75 Baht for the Tsunami Exhibition. 
Dear Khao Lak Friends, 
Please help us to find good exhibits for the Khao Lak Museum. 
We need pictures from the first 10 years of Khao Lak, for example pictures of the beach restaurants and Tarzan's Beach Bar. But also pictures, maps, tickets, bills from the resorts and dive shops. 
We need also more pictures about the reconstruction of the resorts and shops in the year after the tsunami. Maybe you have even a video about the work after the Tsunami. 
I will publish here the address where to send the documents as soon as the museum rooms will be renovated.

Tony Lodge (โทนี่ ลอร์ด) (BangNiang)
High Season Rates: 900 to 1,700 Baht
Green Season Rates: 900 to 900 Baht

The energetic young enterpreneur Tony has built three exceptional resorts in Khao Lak. All three of them are located on Petchkasem Highway. Tony Lodge is called the Hip Hotel by Tony and it is built in a rustic style with old bricks, that were once burnt inside the kilns of charcoal piles for many years. Not one stone is the same and every one could tell a long story, something about elves and fairies – a unique ambiente. Regarding the reasonably priced room rate of 1200 Baht, the rooms are well furnished and fully equipped with air-conditioning, hot water, TV and internet. The receptionist speaks English very well (the lady who was there in April 2011). Tony Lodge is very quiet, even though it is located on the highway. The reason for that could be its solid construction, therefore Tony Lodge is not the right place for those who do not like clinkers or natural materials. A free shuttle service to nearby Khaolak Beach is offered. Guests can also use the swimming pool at Motive Cottage (20 metres from the Hotel). The special room rate of 900 Baht for 2 people including breakfast applies from April to October.

Enzo Japanese Restaurant (ร้้านอาหารญี่ปุ่น เอ็นโซะ) (BangNiangBeachRoad)

The new Japanese Restaurant Enzo on Bang Niang Beach Road offers fresh, healthy and organic dishes prepared by a Japanese chef. The taste and quality of all tested dishes was exceptional, some of them rather bland so that the traditional horseradish mixed in soy sauce comes in handy to add some sting to the taste. According to Japanese tradition single dishes are fairly miniscule so that for a tourist appetite 3 or 4 dishes should be ordered per person. We would suggest to sample a few dishes as appetizers before heading on to a Thai restaurant. Prices are relatively high as it is common for restaurants in Japan. The atmosphere makes up, though, for the price paid.
When booking a table in advance free one-way taxi service is provided.

The oldest bar in Bang Niang is the Piranha Bar of Mr. Pak at Bang Niang Beach Road. Mr. Pak is a great entertainer and gets his bar full almost every night. Guests can enjoy his mixed drinks at the bar counter or at tables made from rustic wood. The music is tuned to a medium level such that conversations are possible and new friends can be made.

Degree Bar (ดีกรี บาร์) (BangNiang)

Die fünf- bis sechs-köpfige Band von Num in der Degree Bar spielt für meine laienhaften Ansprüche den besten Thai Rock in ganz Thailand. Erst ab 23 Uhr füllt sich der zur Strasse offene Laden so richtig. An manchen Abenden gehen die Thais mit, dass sich die Tische biegen. Vor allem Frauen jeden Alters tanzen zu den Stücken von Carabao und Job to do, dass der Boden bebt. Da lassen sich sogar die paar alternden Farangs anstecken und tanzen sich in Schweiss. Mit wenigen Baht fuer ein Sprite und einen Teller geröstete Cashews kann man ein paar tolle Stunden erleben. Pünktlich um 2 Uhr nachts wird aufgehört, was die Musiker auch brauchen, die sich da fast ohne Pause in Hochform spielen.
Immer mal wieder sind Gast-Musiker aus anderen Orten Thailands da und bringen einen anderen Sound mit, mal zum Guten, mal eher zum Abwinken. Auch Farangs, die eigentlich ganz bieder aussahen, haben schon mal die Instrumente und den Saal in Stimmung gebracht.
Sollte es mal an einem Abend nicht so funken -- macht nix, einfach wieder kommen.
Hier habe ich noch nie einen Fight erlebt und noch nie Betrunkene die Stimmung verderben gesehen. Auch Gatoeys sieht man hier nie. Allerdings auch nur ganz wenige Touristen, die in Khao Lak eben um diese Zeit schon in der Heia liegen.
