Chalok Lam Bay Aug 03, 2008
Chalok Lam Bay is set in the picturesque Northern part of Koh Phangan in Thailand. The Bay is huge and is framed by the wonderful mountains across it's entirity. Chalok Lam village is in the center of the bay and has markets and the usual shops and restaurants. It is a very typical rural Thai village as yet not taken over by pure commercialism. There are no fish and chip shops.
The roads into Chalok Lam are dense in tropical vegetation and there are very few major developments to clutter up the skyline. Overall Chalok Lam Bay offers a great escape from the wilder times in the South of the island. There are plenty of water sports at various locations in the bay and just on th eoutskirts of the village an Elephant training camp offer rides through the jungle. There is a Chinese and Thai temple near the training camp that offer some great picture opportunities.
There are plenty of bungalows all around the bay. The ones that have direct access to the beach tend to be located at the far ends of the bay.
