Anyone remember Chaweng in 1994/1995

I'm interested to see how many people on Trip Advisor were some of the old backpackers of the 1990's and remember Chaweng Beach from them. Would love to swap some stories with you.

We stayed at Jah Dub Bar, in between Baan Samui and Dew Drop Huts - it is now The Library - how different it is!

Does anyone remember Sante Fe and the big opening night? Or Catching an old boat from Chaweng Beach to the Full Moon Party on Phangan?

Just found some photo's from my first trip to Chaweng. It was actually late October 1991, not 92 as I originally thought. The 20th anniversary of that first trip is close.

It's a pity my camera and photography skills are nowhere near what they are today but the memmories that these analogue 6 x 4's have just brought back have brought a tear to my eye.

I have to book a trip soon.....Kho Phangan....Here I come!!!!!!!

I had already left for Australia by September 1996, but have been back since, but it's not the same - I remember late nights/early mornings at the Doors Club : )

Cassnu - have just found an old video of '89 trip. Was with girlfriend (wife now) and 2 U.S. friends. Xmas time and hardly anyone on the beach in Chaweng or lamai looking at it now. Still have a few friends there from those days! Timmy from 'Timmys Tailors', Luke and Tip from 'Blackjack' pub

(wonder if they are still there, lost contact a few years ago....anyone???) and a few on K.P.G (Thong Nai pan). Quiet holidays can still be had of course but the prices today! Haven't been since moved back to U.K. three yars ago - should relinquish the d.e. status really!

I was there in 96. I sayed for a month. In Charlies Huts where the chicken meals were more expensive than the accommodation. Also stayed next door at Charlies 2 (Viking Huts) and Joy resort (when I was being flash). I remember The Green Mango, Santa Fe where you could get illuminus body art and The Reggae pub with the long

I have been again and it has totally changed. Its a shame as I wanted to revisit my memory, but everything changes.

I met a great guy called SKY, who was living there for a while.

Sky, if you ever read this, get in touch as your postcard in 1997 didnt have your contact details on it lol.

Bangkokgas, that would be a great video to see, it's not like that there now that's for sure - we prefer Koh Phangan nowadays.

jamie w, I remember all those places - I wonder when Charlies Huts got demolished, there's nothing like them anymore that's for sure.
