LIFE SE ASIA MAGAZINE

Had a good friend Jim King ask me to join him.  I had never been to this nice out of the way bar restaurant.  

Paradise beach bar and restaurant is located Rawai Phuket Thailand.  There is another paradise beach bar located Patong beach.  So if searching for the place I am talking about don’t get confused if searching Google. 

The staff is friendly and prices low.  But what I like the most is the view of Rawai Bay.  And the bar sits right off the water.  It is, also far enough of the road to not have street noise. 

View from the restaurant. 

Nice selection of food.  Beer selection is OK.  They have mixed drinks.  

Menu 


We recommend this place if looking for a quite place,  excellent view especially in the evening.  Food selection limited.  

Hours 

11am to 10pm  7 days a week.

I want to think Jim King for showing this place.

This was Jimmy Lighthouse and after it closed was bought and reopened by Dickies Lighthouse.  It is not actual a lighthouse but a beacon.  Open in 1988 by an American Jim Pearson.  It is a well known landmark. The new owner reopened the lighthouse over a year ago and has done some improvements and kept the charm.  

I have eaten here many times over the years but this week first time under the new owner and was pleased with the service, food,  and atmosphere. 


I had a club sandwich that comes with fries and had a coke.  Service was friendly and good.  My bill was 210 baht or $6 US  

Sample of the menu  they have Thai and western

Introduction:

Time of year: Late October 2016

Purpose of trip: As part of our round the world trip, we were determined to see Halong Bay. In reality, that is best done by an overnight junk cruise.

p1010751Why we chose this place: Halong Bay is unlike anything else, with thousands of limestone mountains rising from the sea. This provides a stunning backdrop and a chance to view the unique lifestyles of the fishermen and their families who spend their entire life on the sea.

We chose the Dragon Legend II (operated by Indochine Junk), because it had great Tripadvisor reviews and it’s a large (therefore sociable) and luxurious (which we felt we needed at this stage in our trip) boat.

How long we stayed: We organised an extended trip with Indochine Junk which included an airport pickup, a night in the lovely Hanoi Pearl hotel, transport down to Halong and…

All of these places I frequent often for take out or buy fresh fruit. All are close together and in Chalong, 4 are close to Chalong traffic circle. 

The first one is very small and most customers are Thai. 

They have papaya salad and the fish is always fresh. I have bought fish at other street vendors where they sold me old fish. Not here, always fresh.

Next is Nungs which you can sit down for a meal. I did a review so can learn more there Nungs Restaurant.

Ao Chalong 59


Ao Chalong is a restaurant and bar off Chalong Bay. Great food and has take out. To learn more can read our review. AO Chalong

Chalong Market

It is across the street from Chalong police station. Depending on the day can be lots of food vendors or just a few. Also other shops there for clothing

Fresh fruit

Small fruit stand across the street of Chalong Market. Small vendor but good prices and I have always helped me pick ripe fruit.
