What is Thailand’s Best Beer?

Posted on by Dave in Articles, Food and Drink, Koh Chang News Leave a comment

So what is the Best Beer in Thailand?

A good question, and there’s only one way to find an answer. That’s right, try them all. So that’s what we did. We assembled a crack team of testers, bought eleven commonly available beers and did a blind tasting of them all to find out which was best. Here’s how it went.

The Beers

We tasted Chang, Singha, Heineken, Tiger, San Miguel Light, Cheers, Archa, Asahi, Leo, Beer Laos Dark and Federbrau. We could probably have found other beers but these were the most easily available and frankly, eleven was quite enough.

The Tasters

The expert tasting team comprised Andrew Sullivan, John Dawes, Roger Brennan, Martin Buswell, Ken Bird, Glenn Marshall and Dave Hinchliffe. There is a great depth of beer knowledge there. Special credit is due to artist/publican Roger Brennan who was the most successful in guessing the identity of the mystery beers.

The System

We did a blind tasting of all the beers, made tasting notes (a few of which are actually publishable) and scored each beer out of ten.

The Results

There were some real surprises, some tasty beers and some really awful ones. But who were the winners and who were the losers.

Thailand’s Worst Beer?

According to our panel the worst beer was…Tiger Beer. This comes as a bit of a surprise since Singapore’s Tiger is brewed under license in Thailand and sold as one of the countries more expensive brands of beer. But this clearly didn’t impress the panel who all found it unpleasant and gave it a dreadful rating of just 14 out of 70.
Tasting notes: “Gassy indescribable pish” – “Really bad, made my face feel tight” – “Nasty aftertaste” – ” tastes like sweat in a glass” “Unpleasant – not refreshing.”

Thailand’s Third Best Beer – Cheers

Congratulations are due to lowly Cheers beer which performed well above its budget friendly price and scored a very respectable 46 out of 70.
Tasting Notes: “One of the better ones” – “Not too bad, slight aftertaste” – ”Drinkable” – ”Drinkable, Inoffensive”

Thailand’s Second Best Beer – Leo

Despite a recent rebranding and change of recipe which also saw an oh-so-sneaky reduction in the volume of each bottle Boon Rawd Brewery’s Leo again performs very well in our beer tasting (it won the last one). It scored 51 out of 70 and was popular with almost the whole panel (one score of five compared the aroma to urine).
Tasting Notes: “Nice taste, has to be Leo” – “Good enough” – “pretty nice, smooth drinking, could drink a few”

The Best Beer in Thailand

OK nationalists brace yourselves, you ain’t going to like this. The best widely available beer in Thailand, as voted for by our expert panel, scored a huge 58 out of 70 and was a clear winner.
So congratulations to Beer Laos Dark!
Tasting Notes: “A treat for the taste buds” – “Very, very nice” – “Hoppy and full flavoured” – “ Malty, sweet and full flavoured” – “Nice proper beer”

Results in Full

1st – Beer Laos Dark – 58
2nd – Leo – 51
3rd – Cheers – 48
4th – Singha – 40
5th – Archa – 38
6th – Federbrau – 34
7th – Heineken 27
8th – Asahi – 26
9th – Chang – 22
10th – San Miguel Light – 18
11th – Tiger – 14

Since we tested there is already a new beer available. “U” Beer, made by the makers of Leo and Singha is… OK. How does it compare to all the above beers? Dunno. Guess we’ll have to have another tasting. Life is tough!

Salak Phet Land Plot Sale

Posted on by Dave in Land Sales, Property & Real Estate Comments Off on Salak Phet Land Plot Sale

Affordable House-Sized Land Plots in Salak Phet

When most people look for a piece of land over on the peaceful East Coast of Koh Chang they are planning to build a house. But usually the plots of land available are huge and expensive so people are buying more land than they want for much more money than they want.

Luckily here is an alternative. A landowner has divided a piece of land into six house-and-garden sized plots of around 400 square metres each. This gives you enough space to build a home on.

They are available at a very affordable price of 1,200 Baht per square metre.

The land is in a peaceful and quiet spot close to a river on the more relaxed and less touristy side of Koh Chang. The plot is located about a hundred metres up a side road and is next to a stand of rubber trees. There are great views of Salak Phet mountain – the highest on Koh Chang.

The land has the best Chanote title and is ideal if you want to build a home right away or also for a longer term investment for the day when the local government finally decide to complete the road around the island.

If you are interested then please contact us below.

How Big is Koh Chang?

Posted on by Dave in Features and Archives, Koh Chang and Thailand, Koh Chang News Leave a comment

Just How Big is Koh Chang?

Modern life can be very easy can’t it? If you want a fact these days, any little nugget of information from the collected wisdom of humanity, all you have to do is to type a question into a little box on your web browser and bang – instant knowledge!

You get so used to this that it comes as a bit of surprise when no simple answer appears. This happened some time ago when I was asked by a friend how big Koh Chang was and whether it was bigger or smaller than Koh Samui and Phuket. I answered right away that it was Thailand’s second biggest island – larger than Samui and smaller only than Phuket. But then I realized that this was just a fact that I’d been told and decided I’d better check it up. The results of a little research revealed some quite large differences of opinion on the subject.

A Google search of “Koh Chang Area” came up with an Agoda ad on the top of the screen that informed me that Koh Chang has an area of 154.8 sq. km. But when I looked a bit deeper it turned out that that is just the area of Koh Chang’s Northern half. Who on earth wants to know the area of half an island?

And what about the battle of the islands? Nobody seems to dispute that Phuket is Thailand’s biggest island – it just is. But things are a little less clear on the big match-up between Koh Chang and Koh Samui for second place.
Wikipedia gives Koh Chang an area of 217 sq. km.  and Koh Samui comes in at 228.7 sq. km.

To be democratic I did a Google search of “Thailand’s second biggest island” and reckoned up what the top ten hits told me.
Guess what – a tie. Five sites went with Koh Chang and five said Samui was larger. The plot thickens.

By this stage I was more than a little confused, then my friend David of www.sawadeekohchang.com came up with a magic solution by recommending a really clever tool at www.freemaptools.com
Here you can browse a map of the world, pick a place and map its area by dropping pins around it. I did this for Koh Chang and Koh Samui (yes, it takes time) and here are the results;

2nd Biggest Island in Thailand
Koh Samui – 233.3 sq. km.

3rd Biggest Island in Thailand
Koh Chang – 211.7 sq. km.

So there you have it. Samui is bigger. Koh Chang is Thailand’s third biggest island (unless anyone wants to suggest any more challengers).
But remember this, size isn’t everything. just come and take a look at Koh Chang and you’ll see what I mean.

Thaidaho Vista

thaidaho-vista-koh-mak-logoThaidaho Vista Koh Mak

Thaidaho Vista is a small, intimate yet affordable retreat on Koh Mak—with a stunning Million Dollar View!  Perched atop Koh Mak’s highest hill, Thaidaho Vista may be Koh Mak’s only true “non-smoking” property.  This, combined with the owner’s ongoing commitment to sustainability, makes for a uniquely fun, clean, green, eco and health-friendly hangout for couples, friends and single travelers.

The owners are Kat and Allen.  Kat is Thai and Allen is from Idaho, so together they are Thaidaho.  Thaidaho Vista has only three or four boutique en-suite AirCon rooms with western toilets and hot water showers; and an artsy café/Coffee Shop (Kat is also an artist and musician) that serves real Northern Thai ‘through-the-fence’ coffee and great western breakfasts.  With inside and outside ocean view seating, the café/coffee shop is open to 4pm with homemade western breakfasts and lunches, all the different hot & cold coffee drinks, Thai fruit shakes, Kat’s fresh baked cakes and treats, and a full ‘old fashioned’ ice cream fountain with sundaes, ice cream shakes, banana splits and lots of homemade toppings.  Beer, wine and soft drinks are also available on the patio.

Open seasonally from November through April: room prices vary by season and room, but range from 700 THB per night in the off season to 2500 THB per night for the second level Vista Room during the peak season.  Thaidaho Vista has advanced reservation nightly rates, long-stay (14 days or more) rates and ‘walk-up’ special rates.  You won’t find Thaidaho Vista on any of the big booking websites because Allen & Kat prefer the direct personal approach, so just email them at: Info@Thaidaho.com

Thaidaho Vista has won Trip Advisor’s coveted ‘Certificate of Excellence’ four years in a row; 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016!  You can read all the Trip Advisor reviews hereAnd you can see many fun photos of Thaidaho Vista on their Facebook page here.
