Only Drunk Mornings at Freedom Bar,Tonsai Beach, Krabi, Thailand
ALL TIME FAVORITE POST FROM 2010 RE-BLOGGED:
I am going to share with you probably the best bar I've been to anywhere else in the world. It's located in the province of Krabi in Southern Thailand. If you're heading to Krabi and going straight for the backpackers and rock climbers paradise - Tonsai beach then you wouldn't miss this. It's right smack in front of the beach just below the cliff rocks where climbers attempt to climb. Its amazing spot is a sure winner.
What i like so much about this bar is the set up. Imagine you're on a holiday vacation or you've been walking the whole day and all you need is a good relaxing nightcap, then i think this is what you're looking for. Take off your slippers, stretch your legs and order a cold bottle of beer. It's the first bar i saw as soon as my boat docked in this island. I arrived in the afternoon where the bartenders were already preparing for a heavy night. Lights were all lit up. The music is just about to be bolted in high quality sounds, everyone was preparing for a seemingly huge crowd. There i met Chang. If ever you go here, he's the friendliest Thai local i met anywhere in Thailand. I actually think we're brothers because we look so much alike. And in my week stay here, we've been bumping anywhere from the foot of the mountain to the other bar in the forest. So if you do see him, say hi. I don't know if he still remembers me, though.
You won't miss the sign. The green lights lighting up the etched on wood sign of Freedom Bar. Indeed for all the hippie, freedom thinkers, this spot is a good place to relax, watch the unbelievable sunset, and drink Chang, my personal favorite. And wait for the stars to wave at you as you look up. Beers cost not more than 100 Thai baht for a big bottle. It's not really cheap but with a view like this, trust me you're getting a bargain.
If you're still wondering where is it actually located. Look below. The same photo but in the lower photo you will see its exact location. Just below the amazing cliffs.
