almost at the end of the southern part of Kai Bae Beach (see map for the location of
Porn's Bungalows on Ko Chang:
Bungalows on Ko Chang).
The name of the bungalow resort, in Thai often also called "Porn Bungalows"
or "Porn Bungalow", has it's origin in the forename of the owner "Jiraporn". The short form is "Porn" which is one of the most common nicknames in Thailand – for men as well as for women ...
The bungalow resort is located directly at Kai Bae Beach (Haad
Kai Bae), a flat, about 2,5 kilometre long beautiful sandy
beach. The coast is partially lined by broad-leaved
trees and over-hanging palms. Depending to the time of the year and to the tides the beach
can be up to 200 metres wide while the sea almost reaches the bungalows in the first row at high water level. Four islands, Ko Yuak, Ko Pli,
Ko Man Nok and Ko Man Nai are situated idyllically in front of the
The bungalow resort has two "parts": the one north of the restaurant
and the one south of it which are run separately by the two oldest brothers of the family. You'll find different bungalow categories
in this cosy tropical holiday paradise so the prices depends on the size and the location of them. Some Family Bungalows were built in the southern part of the bungalow resort. When Porn's
Bungalows was built almost no trees were cleared so that
there are still a lot of coconut palms and broad-leaved trees on
the extensive terrain. The bungalows, standing in rows parallel
to the beach, are all built out of wood (except some stone bungalows at the southern
part). In contrast with lot of other bungalow resorts there is sufficient
space between the “huts”, so that enough privacy is
ensured. The bungalows are either covered with the Thai-typical
palm roofs or with "normal" roofs. All have own bathrooms with European toilet,
hot-water shower and are equipped with ventilators and mosquito-nets.
On the big balconies you'll find a table with chairs. In the newly built family bungalows there is a second washbasin and 2 big beds so 4 people can easily sleep there.
The restaurant of Porn's Bungalows,
which serves delicious Thai specialities, snacks, a few European dishes and surely European breakfast,
doesn’t only offer excellent food and good service but also
has unique charm. For these reasons it has been the most popular
restaurant on Kai Bae Beach for many, many years. A big, unroofed,
wooden terrace with three pavilions - on the upper floor also equipped with tables and Thai-style-cushions - is situated directly at
the beach. In front of the restaurant
there are - if the water level allows it - more tables and chairs directly on the beach, so you can
also eat and drink there with a special “beach atmosphere”.
Years ago in the restaurant most of the chairs were removed
and the “normal” tables were replaced by other ones
with short legs. You can choose to sit on the typical Thai-style-cushions
or, for those who feel uncomfortable with the Thai-way of sitting,
sit on normal chairs and tables in the roofed part
of the restaurant ...
Also some hammocks are found in the restaurant so reading comfortably or just relaxing while enjoying food or drinks is also possible.
|On the barbeque every evening meat, potatoes, corn,
fresh fish, shrimps, squids and other seafood specialities are prepared.
The restaurant offers a big selection of long drinks, cocktails,
beer and other alcoholic drinks but also lots of chilled fruit shakes,
juices and non alcoholic drinks can be ordered.
Porn's Bungalows probably
has one of the most varied music collection on Ko Chang, from French chansons,
Jazz, Rock and Pop to the latest Techno-hits – so everybody
will find something for his individual taste. In addition almost
every evening there are fire juggling shows which are very popular
with the guests.
Wireless Internet is also available. For a little money the guests can connect their devices to the world wide web while sitting in the restaurant, at the beach or relaxing in the hammocks of their bungalows.
Boat trips and sailing journeys to the surrounding
islands can be booked. Elephant trekking can also be arranged and
kayaks can be rented to explore the beaches and the nearby islands.
A table tennis table as well as a pool table are also located at the restaurant. And
directly on the beach of Porn's Bungalows you can enjoy a traditional Thai massage.

Bae) can be reached by food within a few minutes. There you'll
