Watch the Thai world go by

We stopped here for a rest primarily, it was hot and humid and we needed shade and a beer. Set on the southern end of the main road thru town, it was a great spot to sit, relax, sip ice cold beer and watch the Thai lifestyle drive, walk, speed and scooter by.

We called in here almost every night for a great atmosphere with music (a couple of nights was live, with a guitar player) a pool table, and 99 baht cocktails. Friendly staff and very relaxed atmosphere.

As we were staying just over the road from Sakai Bar we sometimes visited for a final drink before retiring for the night. Free pool table for those who enjoy a game and some decent music to listen too. Staff were helpful and the cocktails were not too bad either!!!

This lateish opening bar is a nice place to stop for a beer or a very reasonably priced cocktail. What made it for us was the gallant attempts of the singer guitarist to murder a range of middle of the road anthems. We should not really have been amused but sorry it was impossible not to laugh. Check this dude... More

A wonderful place to sit and relax with a cool cocktail and music. The staff and owner are the friendliest people to meet. Now they are friends on facebook. :-)

The word Sakai, in thai, means origin people. Basically that is what Sakai bar is, origin and original. I have been to khao lak for three years straight. For those three years i have visited every bar you can imagine. This is the only one I come back to. And I go here, everyday. I take my friends here. Why?... More
