A view years ago we booked 2 tickets Bangkok, by accident (or was it faith?) we ended up at Koh Phangan's Mai Pen Rai bungalows. We instantly fell in love with the beautiful beach, the very simple but sufficient bungalows & back to basic attitude. A real great place to escape from busy life and stress.
In 2008 we returned to Mai Pen Rai and got married on the beach in front of the restaurant so for us this is a MUST GO place!
