A friend is staying a couple nights, can someone recommend a good budget backpacker accommodation? Centrally located, friendly & clean?? Thanks for any tips!
Eighty8 on street 88, it's probably one of the nices backpackers hostels I've stopped in, the dorms were cleaned every day and they have lockable cages for your backpack, the food was brilliant for the price and the staff were very helpful, even sorting my visa out for me while I chilled by the pool!
All in all a fab time was had! 5* about 6 years ago
Also keep in mind that the average monthly salary there is ~$30. Use that as a guide to bargain for stuff if you're planning to do some shopping. For traditional food that has been served at royal functions, check out "amok" (made from boneless fish fillet) cooked in a bowl made from banana leaf.
I was there Feb. 2011 and loved it.
