Phuket beach clean up restarts 27 July

Government phase two Phuket beach clean up starts 27 July in Rawai Phuket

This truly is ‘hearts and minds’ time in Phuket. The second phase of the government’s island wide beach clean up started in Rawai today, 27 July, with little fanfare. No local press was around to see a battalion of Royal Thai Army soldiers start assembling around 08:00. And after a few short speeches by local officials and a couple PR photos the boys in green ...

Best treehouse dining in Phuket Town

Tamachart Restaurant Phuket Town built like a tree house full of forky stuff

Who wants to eat Thai food in a tree house? This fork reckons most everyone, especially families with children. That must be why Tamachart Restaurant in Phuket Town is still doing a brisk businesses selling reasonably priced Thai food. All from a restaurant build in and around a tree packed with kitsch décor.

Patong Beach is oh so pretty

Patong Beach Phuket Thailand clean up is better but jet skis can stay

Patong Beach is so beautiful and lovely now, it makes birds sing. Done and dusted, let the celebration and back slapping begin. Hooray for the ‘super moon‘ high tides for washing most of the evil scum away. Now it is quickly coming back home to roost. Could someone please urgently come back and take away all the rubbish left behind? After tearing ... Read More »

‘Super moon’ takes out Pak Bang Rawai

Pak Bang Seafood Rawai torn down because it had a roof no more seaside dining in the day

 Pak Bang Seafood by Rawai’s seashore is history. But the rumour about super moon destroying seaside table seating is a forking lie. Individual shop owners, not the super moon, tore it down. However the Rawai seawall (and another big tree) took another super hit with the remaining seaside restaurants to the north getting damaged. A digger was working overtime trying to rebuild Rawai’s seawall that fails to prove it ... Read More »

Stormy future for seaside dining in Phuket

Stormy weather for Pak Bang Seafood Centre in Rawai

Pak Bang Food Center is this fork’s top seaside dining destination in Phuket. I take almost all family and friends visiting Phuket here. It is very family friendly and loved for its location right on water and stunning views of Rawai beach. It helps that most of the time the seafood vendors at Pak Bang  delivered solid meals. Years ago I ... Read More »

Best Khao Soi in Chiang Mai

Chiang Mai best Khao Soi noodles Aroon Rai opposite Thaepae Gate

Aroon Rai Restaurant serves Chiang Mai’s best Khao Soi noodles. This is a highly subjective, personal point of view to say the least. It is also one of this fork’s all time favourite Thai noodle dishes from any region of the country. It might even come out top compared to noodle dishes from any other Asian country (except maybe this ... Read More »

Epic mountain bike ride in Chiang Kham

Rico Resort Chiang Kham epic mountain bike ride through unseen Thailand

Rico Resort Chiang Kham is truly off the beaten track by any measure. How many people have heard of Chiang Kham, Thailand anyway? That’s ok, this fork had to check Google Earth first too. And I haven’t found it on many bucket lists either. Most importantly, good hotels in Chiang Kham are hard to find. If you are looking to discover ... Read More »
