    We stayed in room 407, which is to the right of the elevator, from July 30 to August 5.

    Pros:
    The woman at the reception desk speaks pretty good English and is helpful when you are looking for places to visit.
    When you need help, they come up right away! One night, the A/C was blowing warm air and we called it in to front desk. Within SECONDS, someone was upstairs.
    You always have breakfast! Ask for secret fried rice. :)
    Safe area away from the noise of Khao San Road. We always felt our belongings were secure.

    Cons:
    Bathroom is too small. You may need to sit sideways on the toilet. I am 5'1" and fit alright, but it is really close to the wall.
    Thin walls. You can hear every door shut in the hotel.
    On our last day, there was a bad smell in our room. We do not know what it is or where it came from.
    Elevator is tiny- 6 people max without luggage!
    No Room Service

    Pro & Con: One night, our bed broke- one of the beams broke so the bed was uneven. We called it in around 11PM and the husband who runs the hotel with his wife came up right away to repair the bed. We would have preferred a new room rather than listen to 45 minutes of hammering, but we were glad he came up right away to fix the problem.

They throw a couple bottles of water their way to absolve themselves of guilt and go back to their hotel rooms. Well... Let's look this up on the Internet... SECOND MISTAKE. Through the web of "Related Articles I find that Hpa-An has recently had problems with drug resistant ...

Day 4 After the obligatory sleep in and a breakfast buffet of noodle soup and dim sims mol and I decided that we should go to the supermarket to find some lunch. The supermarket is a tourist destination in itself as there are so many differences in what is on the shelves. Notable highlights include half an isle ...

    ... more I read about their tours in Asia the more keen and excited I got. A big group of young people all with the same motive of being there - a passion to explore and have a great time sounded amazing! Reading through the itinerary for their Indochina Discovery tour - 30 days exploring Cambodia, Vietnam, Laos and Thailand, I needed no more convincing, my mind was set I was joining a tour! It was quite a big sum of money to pay upfront, but it sounded like an ...

    ... allowed us to skip the boring animals and head straight for the tigers/lions/giraffes Etc. This took around 40 minutes. After this we were granted entry to the park. The zoo had set up a timetable of animal shows one after the other from 10am to 4pm. The first show was the Monkey Show. This started with the monkeys zip lining down over the audience to get to the stage. Unfortunately a man a couple of rows behind us had a ...

    I walked through a nearby war museum, where scenes were set up with figures depicting horrible conditions for the prisoners of war. Many of them died of hunger and disease; surviving the hard labor and poor living conditions was too much for many laborers. Pictures ...
