Drink[edit]

There are a large number of bars throughout the Laguna complex but there is no nightlife to compare to Patong.

Just 5 min walk south from the Laguna complex is a small reggae bar owned by an enterprising local named Nam. The drinks at the "Wood Bar" are cheap and cold, the service is relaxed and the atmosphere is just amazing. Nam has built his bar almost entirely from debris washed up on the shore. The bar stands out at night with its green, red, and yellow lights, and as you get closer the alluring sound of reggae music draws you in. Well worth the visit if you are looking for a break from resort life or being pestered by some of the other local bars.
