If you have tried to visit the website the past days you have maybe been wondering what was going on.
The website gets more and more visitors and it was now the time to migrate it to another server. Sometimes things don't go as you wish and of course something went wrong, a compatibility problem crashed the whole site.
But big thank you to Seb from Prévention-informatique in Paris who helped me a lot to solve this problem and www.sawadeekohchang.com is now back on track!
Meanwhile on Koh Chang life is slowing down, it's the low season, the weather is still very nice and beaches are extremely quiet. If you are looking for peaceful and cheaper holidays, it's maybe the time to visit the island. Look at the bottom of this age, there are very good deals at the moment.

A new place I recommend in Pearl beach, Everflow is a vegetarian and vegan café located on the opposite side of Big C supermarket, next to the car wash.
Even if it's a Café, they serve very good breakfast, lunch and early dinner and they are opened daily. Their homemade herbal tea is one of my favourites.
You can follow Everflow on Facebook: www.facebook.com/everflowkohchang/

It's now the low season on Koh Chang, beaches are empty and the island starts to be very quiet.
The weather is still fine, we've got small showers but temperatures are still very good. You can now get very good deals if you are looking for quiet holidays, look at the different booking offers which are on this website.
Almost everybody is now travelling with a phone. Phones are more than a part of our family, they are a part of ourself and to live without a phone can be very difficult for some of you and what will you do the day it breaks or it's not working anymore while you are on Koh Chang? Will you survive?
Some people will say you will need to go or to send it to Trat or to Bangkok to get it fixed. Don't worry, there is a very good phone repair shop on the island and it's located in Klong Prao, close to the temple.
They sell lots of phone accessories, as well as Prepaid SIM cards but they also repair phones. They have lots of genuine spare parts.

One year ago Julian had the idea to build an ecological house. After long researches he found out that the earthbags construction would be the perfect solution for several reasons.
Blue Lagoon Resort was interested by the idea and after a lot of work and the help of volunteers, here is the result:

A new hotel has been added to the website.
Some of you may have a late or early flight when you will arrive or leave from Thailand. In this case you will need to spend one night, or more, in a hotel close to the airport.
There are lots of hotels in Bangkok area and sometimes the choice can be difficult. That's why when I can, I try them for you and if I like them I add them to the website with all the information you need.
You can find here the other hotels I have already tried myself:
This hotel I have just added is Suvarnabhumi Suite Hotel, located at 10 minutes from the airport. Rooms are not very expensive compare to the others I have already reviewed. The level is different of course but the quality and comfort I got compare to what I paid, for one night it was perfect.
