What's on this week in Khao Lak?

There are a number of events that take place throughout the year in Khao Lak ,aside from the tours and many Things to Do, that might interest members. For instance a number have enjoyed attending, though never winning, one of the regular Quiz Nights held in aid of local charities at various venues. These continue throughout the year as it provides entertainment for the various volunteers from all over the world and their teachers/organisers as well as the local volunteer community and ex-pats.It is intended that these will be held every other week from now on and will state in advance the recipient Charity as some people have suggested this will encourage attendance and, hence, raise more money.

On the other hand there are other events that are not attended as well probably because they are not well advertised or they are advertised in Thai which most people don't understand. For example, the annual "Welcome to Phang Nga New Season Opening Ceremony" and exhibitions, held at the beginning of December and the Temple Fair at the Bang Niang Temple just a few weeks ago are great opportunities to enjoy Thai life and mingle with them. Even though very welcome you do feel like strangers in a foreign land but it is all the more enjoyable for it.

So it is intended to post details of what is going on weekly in Khao Lak from now in - if and when our loyal providers of information in Khao Lak provide details and I will add it. Or if any member becomes aware of a forthcoming event please feel free to add details but not too far in the future please.

I will ask TripAdvisor to make this a Sticky so that it will remain live at the top of the topics list (hope springs eternal that new members will read the Stickies and the Top Question FAQs.).

Something not to be missed is the last walking street market for this season in Old Takuapa.

This Sunday, 27 April.

Some hotels will be running excursions to this, look out for leaflets in reception.

Or arrange a taxi and just go on your own.

Quiz night is back on 14th May at Mars Bar, all money raised will go towards Andrew Cutting's project of buying the jaws of life for the Khao Lak rescue team. Teams of 2/3/4, 100 THB per person and all money goes towards the charity project.

Wednesday 14th May 7.30pm for 8pm (ish) start.

Organiser in Khao Lak trying to get a timetable going forward agreed with volunteer groups who form most part of contestants. I pointed out that there are a lot of Aussies in Khao Lak over Wet Season and they like a good quiz and Mars Bar, if they've been before so I'm sure future dates will be forthcoming.

Details to be posted asap.
