Waterview Restaurant @ Dannok

Waterview restaurant at Danok is one of the most visited restaurant in Danok, because it’s special. How special? You will know soon.

Anyway, the restaurant is located quite outside from the main town. The road lead to there is very small, hence I do advice one to go there when the sun is still out.

Since I am not driving myself in, I go there using the hotel taxi. Which cost me RM30 for a round trip. It’s just a short trip by the way, which takes around 15minutes each journey, but since we are sitting the huge VIP style van, I think the price is pretty ok.

Breakfast Street Food @ Dannok

As lively as Dannok gets around 6PM till 8PM almost every night especially weekend, most of the time it’s a quiet town.

For breakfast, one will have a hard time trying to found a shop to eat in. However, if you don’t mind sitting by the road for your breakfast, then you will have plenty of option.

Quite a few stalls selling Koay Chap (粿汁), which is a bit different from what we normally get in Malaysia.  Koay Chap is a dish with a special type of noodle. The texture is also different and it’s doest taste a bit like koay teow, but not really so. They are not stingy with the ingredients at all which make it quite a filling bowl of noodle. 6.8/10

Paramount Palace Hotel @ Dannok, Thailand

As many had know, Dannok is located right over the immigration counter of Thailand.

Although it’s located so near to Malaysia, but the town here is really very different to Malaysia, and most importantly, they served great food here!

Paramount Palace Hotel is just less than 5 minutes walking from the immigration counter. A new hotel I was told, and the hotel does look good from the outlook.

The room, however, is a real basic one.

The air corn however, no remote control in the room and hence you can’t adjust the temperature.

When I ask the front desk where’s the remote control, I was told it was set to auto, and if the air-conditioner was not cool, I can called to complaint. But, what’s if it’s too cold? Guess that’s why they have a fan in the room. =.=’

Ped’s Restaurant @ Bukit Kayu Hitam (Ban Dan Nok)

After walking under the hot sun around the town of Ban Dan Nok, it’s lunch time before we head back to Malaysia.

Since both me and LY are extremely thirsty, we order 1 big bottle of fresh sugar cane water to share among. It’s extremely refreshing, and we finish the whole bottle even before our dish came. Hence, 2 person 2 bottle, fair right?
