For the budget traveller, here are some tips for you.

Get a brand new motorbike for 250 baht a day. The old bikes are 150 bahts a day. If you are taking a bike for more than 2-3 days, it gets cheaper.

Go to a shop called Jumbo at Chaweng. Reasonable prices for tours, transport, etc.

Go to Smile massage for your fix. Priced reasonably, committed and do a good job.

Magnets are 90 baht for 4; don't get ripped off.

As you walk through Chaweng, you will find about 10 night market stores on the streets. The goods are similar to the shop goods but the price is realistic.
