Bar Amsterdam on Phangan - a cult place with sunsets

There are several bars on Phangan, which are well-knownevery second tourist and every second tourist will certainly find time to get a personal set of selfies in a cult place. Amsterdam Bar is one of them. Due to its location, concept and easy accessibility, the bar attracts a lot of young people who flew to Phangan from around the world. I would especially note that the place is just tusovochny and young, because you cannot find solitude and complete peace here. As well as normal swim in the pool, or a tasty and inexpensive dinner.

Bar Amsterdam (Amsterdam Bar)

Amstardam Bar (AmstArdam Bar) on the ideaThe organizers should have been reminded of the frivolous atmosphere of Amsterdam, but at the same time be notable for stellar naming. And the star in English will be “star”, probably everyone who has not even learned English knows this. For a more obvious association, a star is inserted in the logo of the bar instead of the central letter “A”, but this does not help much, and for the whole of Pangan this bar was, is and remains “Bar Amsterdam”. Pay attention to the picture before starting the ascent to the bar, and to the colorful name of the bar in front of the stairs - it says Amstard and this is not a mistake of Thai artisans.

Regarding the institution itself, there are two mainopinions and as I see them, they belong to two types of people. The first love to meet the sunset in silence and relaxation, and they remain disappointed. And the latter are not against listening to loud music and knocking with their elbows with their neighbors, so the place “comes in” them the first time. All of them come to Amsterdam Bar, primarily due to the popular belief that the bar has a great view of the sunset sea. The view is really chic and deserves a separate visit, but in addition to the sunset there is also a swimming pool, a two-level building without a roof, cocktails and a kitchen.

It is better to stop at the top tier: there is a more comfortable location, and a more interesting view, and you don’t have to push around among people sitting on plastic furniture, and the music is quieter. So let's say, the lower deck for tusycha and alko, the upper one for relax and rasta. Although I said that there is really a huge crowd in the evenings, but it decreases sharply an hour after sunset. People, of course, will still be a bit much in season, but already normal.

Cocktails and food in Panga Amsterdam are not the mostthe best and at the same time also expensive. The pool is dirty and too small, considering the number of people who are crowded here in the evening. And I don’t want to jump into the water-infested water, especially in the evening. This is not an infinity, where one could recline on the very edge of the pool with a glass of pineapple neck and imbued with the colors of the sunset sky. And to sit in the paddling pool and look at the feet of people around is an unpleasant pleasure.

Shoes that should be removed at the entrance, betterkeep it in sight or put it away so that no one drunk can put it on by mistake. On the official page of Amsterdam Bar, this is a normal phenomenon, when the next morning the search for missing things begins.

Those who are extremely negative to the Rasta theme,You should not go here even for the sake of sunset. Spoil your nerves only, there more than 90% of visitors smoke. Lovers of silence and relaxation for the maximum time "for a tick, but for the same daily visit only lovers of parties.

Information to visit

Admission is free, use of the pool too. The day off is Tuesday and Sunday, and on other days the institution opens from 12 noon to 12 noon. If you want to take a table, you must come no later than 17 hours.

Parking is free. But at the very top of the site is small and be careful, very steep entry, it will be difficult for beginners. Bike can be left below, but then all the way to the hill will have to overcome on foot.

The food is so so. Prices are high. Fresh coconut 100 baht, cocktail 200 baht.

If you want to sit in a relaxed atmosphere and without a party, then either come in the afternoon or after sunset, or go to the next Top rock bar (also rasta bar).
