What’s your favourite Thai food ?

Posted by on Dec 19, 2016 in | Comments Off on What’s your favourite Thai food ?

* Our prize draw winners are listed below…* Many Chaloklum Diving customers have told us how they enjoyed some of their favourite Thai food in Thailand during their day out on our big boat – as well as the SCUBA diving and snorkelling, of course! Therefore we are planning to offer late afternoon to early evening non-diving, Koh Phangan trips featuring a rather special 3 course Thai meal from our super-chef, Lek. Menu items under consideration (just to get you interested!) include: Thai green curry with Chicken & Aubergine Indian style Thai Chicken curry with potatoes Pork...

The Big Boat is Back and further Chaloklum Diving news from Koh Phangan

Well, it was meant to be a quick visit to a new boatyard in Suratthani, but Lek and Nick ended up spending 2 weeks there as a great team of craftsmen did a lot of necessary and thoroughly professional work. For sure, after all that it’s great to be back on Koh Phangan and a fine feeling to have the Chaloklum Diving boat looking so good. All we need is a little more SCUBA diving action – things are still quiet in the Gulf of Thailand, although the upcoming full moon party should make the island busier soon. Sail Rock remains our principal dive site with Angthong Marine Park and...

Posted by on Jun 24, 2016 in | Comments Off on The Phanganist – More than just parties

It’s been Six years since Phanganist.com was created and introduced to the world wide web, showcasing the neon colours and music of Koh Phangan – Phanganist was giving the rest of the world a view of the party island in paradise. Photos from parties, writing about the parties, partying at the parties, listing when the parties were taking place, speaking to the djs and more. But over the years most human beings learn that it can’t quite all be about partying… So, Phanganist.com has evolved naturally to start covering the whole low-down on Koh Phangan – this island has long...

A belated Chaloklum Diving update from a HOT Koh Phangan

We blame it on the heat! It’s so been so hot during the day at the dive centre in Chaloklum that we have just enough energy to manage the day-to-day business, but serious stuff like writing a diving school blog tends to get put off ’til tomorrow… However, it’s not so hot on a morning now and the blog is definitely overdue, so here goes. Koh Phangan is for sure even more torrid than normal for this time of year, and with minimal wind it means that the Gulf of Thailand is super calm, making for some great diving and snorkelling. And so of course (as ever!) the island...
