Amsterdam. A town referenced by it’s red light district and legal cannabis, it’s safe to to say that it’s stereotypical visitor is looking for something a little different to traditional tourist activities.

(You might remember my aversion to drunk backpackers from my post about Vang Vieng).

Best place to Stay Koh Phangan Haad Salad

Now, don’t get me wrong – I’m not lumping every backpacker into this category, and a big blow out every once in a while can be healthy (and fun!) but I just don’t like to be/stay in that kind of environment. So where else should you stay? Read on to find why Haad Salad is the best place to stay on Koh Phangan!
