Web-site problems

Since today I see that the links in the menu-bar are not directing anymore to what they should be directing to.

While that same link works perfect from this posting Restaurant & Coffee Shop Reviews in Thailand

So it seems there is something wrong with the menu-bar gadget in Blogger

River Kwai Jungle Rafts in Kanchanaburi, Central Thailand

Simple accommodation but at a more as stunning location floating on the Kwai Noi River about 70 km north of Kanchanaburi city. After a 20-min boat trip in a long-tail boat you arrive at the wooden & bamboo floating hotel .... operating since 1976!!

The perfect place to sit, swim, relax and enjoy life .... no electricity! So no internet, no telephone signal, no warm water and oil-lamps as light in the evening. Very romantic! Back to the basics of life .... and I loved it! Just sit, relax and enjoy the great hospitality of the Mon people working at this hotel. Highly recommended ... and stay for at least 2 nights! Great place to stay with children.

Tub Kaek Sunset Beach Resort in Krabi, South Thailand

The resort is located right along the beach of Tub Kaek beach in Krabi province. This is a bit isolate beach with only 4 resorts and 1 restaurant.

We loved the low-rising design of the resort and the green garden. It is a bit older resort (as all along this beach) but because of that it is more green and gives a lovely feeling. And the resort is recently renovated with an all new swimming-pool-access wing!

Be aware that due to the great location of this resort there is nothing nearby. No shops, no ATM, no 7/11 and no public transport. And taxi's are expensive. Nevertheless that is exactly why we liked it so much and why I think this resort is highly recommended!

Hotel tips .... location

No hotel review this time. But a tip about hotel locations. Many times I hear people complain that their hotel was not good located. Well there is something you can do to prevent that.
Do not trust things like "conveniently located in the city" or "Great choice for travellers" or "Real heart of the city". Sea view does not have to mean that you can walk to the sea. The favourite part of th city does not have to be your favourite part of a city.
Check the location your self! Have a look on Google Maps and see where the hotel is in relation to places you want to visit.

Sabay Nan Hotel in Nan, North Thailand

Another brand new hotel, located between the rice-fields just 3-km outside the city. A modern apartment style hotel with friendly staff.

They have 14 standard rooms and 2 so called family rooms (4 persons) with vide for the master-bed. Quite location and lovely breakfast!

Thong Tarin Hotel in Surin, North-East Thailand

Photo from hotel web-site
Since living & traveling in Thailand I have been here quit a few times. And I have seen this hotel as a luxury business hotel fading away due to lack of maintenance and care. But since a few years it did revive again and the last time I stayed here it was a perfect place to stay. Be aware that the hotel is located in the entertainment area of Surin town.
