Takiab Beach pretty, family friendly and laid back.
Soooo much empty accommodation everywhere but they quote a high price. Get a couple nights and hire a scooter. The "justic person" of buildings will give you numbers of english speaking agents. Take 30-40% off most asking prices.
There are no taxi meters here and they all charge an arm and a leg. Expect 100b min for a really short trip but sometimes they try to ask 150 or even 200b. Can ride in the back of a green truck for 10b.
Also getting sick of paying more cause im white (farang tax). Other day i was quoted 70b for a cake after i saw a local pay 20b.
You gotta haggle hard!
