A lot of cash changing hands- get ready for an increase in tea money and patronage has to be re-paid over the next few months. halong is not a cheap post to get by all accounts.

The new Chalong Police Chief had a lucky draw with 'getting' Chalong. Chalong were bars/disco's not have by police enforced closing times as the thai laws stipulate. At night Chalong is in police 'Ostrich Rest'.
