“I was staying at Moonshadow on my way from Thailand to Malaysia. At the same time it is a homestay and a restaurant which are both operated by the wonderful Ms. Pom. The location is in walking distance to the train station and the overland buses coming from Phuket, Trang or Hat Yai.
The homestay is backpacker friendly and offers basic fan rooms and an amazing rooftop view, just ask for it. A great asian breakfast is included in the roomprice and is a great start for a day of exploring.
Pom the owner is very hospital and is eager to recommend stunning places in and around Sungai Kolok. I have been for a cycling trip, rafting and the national park with waterfalls and the big tree.
Totally recommended to stay for a few days before or after crossing the border between Thailand and Malaysia”
