Mandalay Bar, For Those With Romantic Bones

Klong Prao Beach is an area of Thailand that is made for the romantic movie scenes, with all its majestic splendor and type of deeply mystical allure unique to this area of the island.


This bar is quite lovely, doubling up as a café and it is not more than two minutes away from the nearest popular resorts. The location along the beach was absolutely made for long, romantic, relaxed walks along the beach, with the ultimate destination being the bar itself, making for a great time out for the romantic hearts.


Mandalay Bar serves as the ultimate epitome of the essence of Klong Prao Beach, accounting for some postcard moments your eager mind will remember for a very long time to come in the future, so the moment is just made to be savored in all respects.


The venue itself is very inviting, offering very reasonable prices and you can’t help but get the general sense that the owners do everything in a manner which suggests they’d absolutely love to have you back and would relish the prospect of you spreading the word and bringing in more of your acquaintances.


In addition to the very reasonable pricing, the drinks are genuinely very good but, even more surprisingly, given the pricing, is how good the food is. You would have thought the food area would take a bit of a beating since the focus seems to be on the drinks side of things, but there is no such compromise to speak of.


If ever perfection actually existed, Mandalay Bar would be the two-word definition for it, in the latest of the biggest dictionaries, as it simply brings together all the right elements of a fantastic holiday wining and dining experience ever conceivable.


The danger of discovering this place, before any other one on the island, is the fact that you may not want to go anywhere else, in fear of spoiling perfection.
