The Sunrise Villa Blog is designed to give first time visitors as well as returnees to Thong Nai Pan useful information about the area. The two beaches of Thong Nai Pan are often described as the best on Phangan Island. They are also the two beaches that are changing the quickest.


While the beaches themselves continue to be pristine and attractive, the surrounding area has changed a lot over the last 20 years. The villages of both Thong Nai Pan Noi and Thong Nai Pan Yai continue to grow and offer better facilities and amenities. At the same time the local roads have come on leaps and bounds.

The same can generally be said of the businesses in the area. While some bemoan the loss of such long-time businesses as Bios, Honey Bungalows, the Hideaway, and more recently, the Thong Nai Pan Noi version of Baan Panburi, many of the new restaurants, bars and shops in the area have generally improved the experience for people visiting the area.

One of our missions in this blog is to keep the reader up-to-date with changes in Thong Nai Pan.

In-depth Information

Many travel guides not just about beaches in Thailand but about anywhere in the world tend to replicate the same core content. This is content primarily concerned with the tourist industry. We are part of the tourist industry, but we want to provide information about Thong Nai Pan that does not directly benefit us. We want to publish content that is new, informative and interesting. Content that will give people a good idea about what Thong Nai Pan is really like.

The Sunrise Villa Blog will provide reviews of bars and restaurants. It will look at the facilities and amenities of the two beaches. We will also take time to introduce some of the characters that makes Thong Nai Pan the place it is.

And if there is any news, we will endeavour to be the first website to publish the news item.

Videos and Pictures

No blog would be complete without pictures and YouTube videos, and so we will be including these in liberal amounts in www.sunrisevilla.info/blog


Finally, we want this blog to be a resource to help people find the information they need not just about Thong Nai Pan but also Koh Phangan. We will include addresses of useful websites, telephone numbers, email addresses and mailing addresses where we can.

Moreover please feel to comment. We want this blog to be a conversation of voices, opinions and ideas about visiting, living in and experiencing the wonderful place called Thong Nai Pan.
