“Lied a lot”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2014

We were approached in the street about a beach party..promised free pick up a free shot and a fire show. None of these things materialized. Very disappointed

We don't tell lies here but I am happy to clear up the three points you made.

Firstly, our fire show performer let us down at the last minute. Sincere apologies for that. Secondly, as I explained, our free pick up is for a minimum of 6 people. As you were a party of 4, I had cheap taxi arranged for you which you chose not to use. Finally, the free cocktail shot is made every week and given to anybody with a flyer. All you had to do was ask.

Enjoy the rest of your travels

“Good food, great staff, good music, sports on TV, right on the beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2014

Travel So Far Beach Bar and Restaurant is in the middle of Klong Khong Beach, look for the surf board sign if approaching from the beach, sign on the main road also. Best Thai food I have had in a long time, burgers and pizzas great also. Very friendly and good fun owner Meow and staff looked after me so well. Suggested activities, booked tickets for me and organised a rental motorbike, nothing too mush trouble. Monday nights they have a great DJ for their party night, a lot of fun!

I will always return!!

“We love Travel So Far Bar”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2014

This is a great spot on Klong Khong Beach. Meow is a great hostess - lots of fun and laughs. Also a great cook! Everything we have eaten Thai and Western has been great. We were there on Monday night for the DJ party and it was lots of fun. She told us she has a DJ each Monday. I wish we were staying longer so we could go back for another party night. The DJ was fabulous and kept everyone dancing. I also liked the free pool table - and that you can just hang around and play pool and have a drink. Great vibe in this place.

“Great food and atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2013 via mobile

We ve been here two times now for dinner and both times have been great. The foods fantastic and the menu short and clear. Service is always friendly, I love the light shades in this place that were hand made by the owner, they create a really cool atmosphere. will definitely be back again!

“Extremely loud parties Friday nights!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2013

Stayed in the resort next door and could not sleep before 4 a.m. A request to turn down the volume was met with an unfriendly "You're not my boss.". Legal closing time in Thailand is 2 a.m.

I find it strange that you have wrote a review for our bar when you weren't even a customer. It would have been fairer if you wrote a review for the resort you stayed at and complained about the noisy bar next door where over a hundred people were enjoying themselves past your bed time.

Just to warn you that our parties have now moved to Mondays in case you come back to Klong Khong soon.
