Road Trip to Danok
« on: October 01, 2015, 12:51:42 AM »
Finally decided to pen down about my trip to Danok.

Friends and I finally decided upon a road trip up to Danok after a long deliberation period as wasnít exactly sure whether we would be able to take it for driving the long distance.

The drive itself was not too bad, being that we did not have any stopovers through Malaysia, as in that we did not enter Malacca, Kuala Lumpur, Ipoh or Penang, just toilet breaks along the North-South Highway.

Duration of drive is about 8 hours each way, so expect a total of 16 hours minimum for the entire trip.

We drove a Toyota Wish 1.8 so the cost of driving is based on this type of vehicle.
Distance was about 800++ KM.
Petrol: We calculated a total of 2.5 full tanks per trip and thank god for the exchange rates, it wasnít too expensive.
1 full tank (50ltrs) RON97 Ė V-Power: RM2.350/ltr
Total: RM293.75 Ė S$105 x 2 = S$210
Toll Rates: about RM150 1 way. Total RM300 = S$107

Driving up to Danok, is entirely driving on the NSH, so no worries on navigation and roads were smooth.
Upon reaching Changlun, just before the Malaysian Customs border, one will see some shops selling Thai Car Insurance, this is a must when applying for a Car Export Permit.

Requirements for driving foreign car in Thailand:
Bring along your log card. With proof you are owner of car.
Purchase Car Insurance (RM20) valid for 9days. Submit the log card and passport of car owner together.
The place where you purchase the insurance, they can fill in the Thai Immigration Card as well for RM1.50.
Make payment and drive towards Bukit Kayu Hitam, which is the Malaysian Customs Border.
Malaysian side is easy, just as per same as Singapore-JB, just drive up to the customs counter.
Just a note to take, if you have MACS in your passport, remember to ask the customs at JB to stamp your passport as the Thai side may ask why you do not have a stamp for entering Malaysia. MACS is ONLY recognized for Singapore-JB.
After clearing Malaysian customs, there will be a duty free zone on your left side. You can go in to buy duty free cigarettes and alcohol and the other usual duty free stuff.

Now will proceed onto Thai Border.
Drive straight and just before the immigration counters, turn to the left where there is a large carpark and park your car there.
Walk towards the immigration counters and get your passport stamped.
Then go to another customs counter to apply for the Car Export Permit. This will be valid for 1 month, so unless you are going to make multiple trips into Thailand within the 1 month period, you will need to surrender this Permit upon exiting Thailand.

Once getting the Permit, return to your car and drive on through into Thailand.

When exiting Danok, same procedure:

Drive up to the customs, turn left and park your right at the carpark, get your passport stamped and then go to another customs counter to surrender the Export Permit. At this time, the customs officer may ask to see your vehicle, so whilst you are at the counter, get your friend to drive the vehicle over.

Once done, get back into the car, drive on towards Malaysian customs, and as usual, drive up to Customs counter and get your passport stamped. Then use your TnG to pay the toll fee as per in JB.

The final clearance will require you to alight the vehicle and open your car boot.

The above is a summarized version from me of the road trip to Danok. You may find other more detailed versions online.

We had booked KPK Hotel via AGODA in Danok for our duration of stay there. It has since changed name in AGODA to M HOTEL now. Rate is about THB1200 per night.

The hotel we stayed, is not exactly new, but still very comfortable to stay in. Big bed with big room.

Walk-in guests can pay in either THB or MYR, but do take note that there will be an additional 15% when paying by MYR due to the sliding exchange rate of the MYR.

In regards to using which currency in Danok, at this point in time, most establishments would prefer THB as it is about MYR10 = THB830.
It used to be MYR10 = THB100.
Most establishments would ask your preferred currency for payment and will recalculate accordingly.
So far the 2 discos in KPK area still work on MYR10 = THB100, so no worries. You will be really getting value on your buck.

Do take note that there are many hotels available in Danok at cheaper prices too.

KPK is an area Danok where is under The VOUK Management, which if Iím not mistaken, is Malaysian owned.
In this KPK area, lots of food available, 7-11 and 4 disco clubs. 
There is also a HUGE Ganesha statue/ temple located within KPK, very hard to miss. Itís not as big as the Ganesha in Chacheongsao, but BIG enough.

Language wise is no issue in Danok, if you can speak English, Chinese, Canto, Hokkien, Teo Chew and Malay. The Thais there are very used to having Malaysians coming over, just like how we enter into JB for the weekends.

Food wise here, do expect prices to start from THB50 onwards for individual portion. But do take note the portion sizes are better than further up North.

There is a buffet moo ka ta nearby KPK and just look for the signboard showing He Jia Hotel, turn onto the road and just drive all the way towards the end, restaurant is on the left.

There is a restaurant called Waterview where the restaurant is situated around a pond and food is served via waiters on a small boat. Nice place to chill the afternoon away. Can choose to drive there or just ask your hotel lobby to call the restaurant to come pick you up. Not sure how much they charge per head for the return trip, but it will billed into your final bill.

We did make a drive into Hadyai for Roast Suckling pig, distance was about 50km, took about 30-45mins, depending on traffic and how you drive.
Roast Suckling Pig is located near Lee Gardens Hotel.
1 Pig goes for THB1600. They will let you eat the skin first then they will chop the pig up and stir fry again in garlic. They do have a menu with other dishes as well.

If one does not drive up, can take a mini-van to Hadyai from Danok, not sure how much though. But can check with reception at hotel.

There is this Asean Cultural Village where there are actually activities where you can bring your new found teerak to go take photos and stuff. But nothing much else as yet of this place.

At night, some of the Sois do have bazaar/ pasar malams going on. But do take note that as they are not rebuilding the main road going through the town, it may seems confusing if you are driving.

Danok is a very small town of about 2km. It is basically what the oldies call a cowboy town.

Just go there for booze, food and s_x.

The 2 current hottest clubs in Danok now are M Club and First Club.
There is a V8(no relations to V Holdings), Jaguar Boss Club and a Hello Bangkok Club, but as I did not go to these 2 clubs, I canít talk much about it. 

The Clubs opens as early as 5pm and ladies will have to start work by 7.30pm.
Usually by 8.00pm, full force of ladies will be there.

M Club, First Club and Jaguar Boss Club are situated within KPK area and Hello Bangkok Club is situated somewhere else, but still nearby.

M Club and First Club have same MO. Hang flowers, buy LDs.

1 bottle Heineken Ė THB200
5 bottles Heineken Ė THB1000
12 bottles Heineken Ė THB2000
Ice Ė THB110
Didnít bothered with the hard liquor pricings as we are all beer drinkers.

Flowers and sashes from RM20, RM50, RM200, RM500

LD: RM10 per shot.

Remember I mentioned previously that the discos still keep to RM10 = THB100. So one can still pay for booze and flower and LDs in RM.

Bottles are the big bottles, not the small ones.

M Club

As with most discos in Thailand, upon entering, server will bring you to a table and take your order.
Take your order and whilst waiting for your order to arrive, be ready to be swamped by the ladies working there.
Basically there are PR and Bikini Models, the Bikini Models have supposedly different grades as well. But to me, same same but different. All are just in Bikini. Even when they get off stage and come drink with you, they are still in bikinis.
As a customer you can really inspect the goods and rubba-bility is extremely high in here.
Try not to waste time with the PRs though some are really cute. The bikini models are more fun and higher chance of bringing back.

Ladies here tend to be more aggressive and hungry for flowers and LD as there are really really REALLY a lot of ladies working in here.

Live band is good and with the big stage they have, entertainment is extremely well with back up dancers and all. Some singers at M Club I have remembered seeing in SG, just donít remember their names, so never bothered calling for them to come down.

Yes, one is able to hang flower for band and singers and request for them to come down.

First Club

This club is all the way to end of KPK and as mentioned above, same MO and same pricings as M Club.
I personally prefer First Club as I feel more relaxed here.

Ladies in here are slightly lesser than M Club, but at any time more than any of the Thai clubs in SG and the bikini models here dare to wear. They would wear thongs or G-Strings for their Bikinis so you can really check out their nice butts.

Was spotted by a singer who used to know me since the days of Oasis. She wasnít even on stage then, was just walking around the club and she shouted out PII CHAI~!~! Scared the sh_t out of me.

Gave her a RM50 flower for old times sake.

The band she sang with, used to play in Neverland or Neverland 2, canít really remember, but again, was a top notch performance by them.

There are more mix of songs here, English, Chinese, Canto and Thai. At least the Thai songs are the newer ones and those gazillion years ago songs.

Ladies here are not as aggressive but still as hungry for flowers and LDs, but it feels so good spending here as compared to spending in SG or even Malaysia. Cheap as ChipsÖ

Clubs here generally closes around 2.30am Ė 3.00am. Dependent also if have a lot customers, but generally is 3.00am.

V8, most people says itís a shake head joint, have not ventured in before but they do operate till 6.00am Ė 7.00am.

For most nights, supper is either BBQ seafood (crabs and snail), jok, baa mee.

From drunk memory, not very expensive at all. The crabs are mud crabs and not those cheap ass blue crabs.

There are Thai foods available still for supper as well as dim sum and all are within the KPK area.

The BBQ crab, the more popular one is outside of Grand Satit Hotel, just a few soi away from KPK.

Just a note for anyone who may consider going to Danok and going to these Clubs.

There are LADYBOYS working here. And quite a number of them ARE HOT!!!

A lot of them are on hormones so you would not be able to notice their package even when they are in bikini.

As mentioned earlier, Danok is a Cowboy town, so just imagine Soi Cowboy in Bangkok, s_x and booze.

For those who have WeChat and BeeTalk, Iím sure everyone in here will have both.

Just open the apps and you will see all the ladies, ranging from masseuse, ladies for booking and ladies working at discos and KTV.

Just a heads up.
The ladies for booking,
ST = THB1500
LT = THB3000 onwards
Of course all these are open for nego.

Using the apps, you can view the ladies in the comfort of your room and just add them and nego with them firstly before you decide and ask them up to your room. Special delivery. Hahahhahaha!!!

There will always be some OKT stationed outside the more popular hotels in Danok and they will always ask you whether you want any ladies and ask you to go view the ladies. Even if you walk along the streets and even with a lady at your side already, they will still ask you.

If not lazy, then just walk around, every turn and corner is a ďchicken farmĒ. They will on their signboard says it is a KTV pub or cafť, but when you look inside, itís just a fish tank.

Even for massage, you can order up to your room as well.

I ordered one, THB500, full body oil, but didnít remember how long it was.

One can be really a lazy f__ker in Danok, hahahaha~!~!~!

There are KTVs in Danok as well, but we spent most of our nights in either First or M, didnít manage to try the KTVs, unable to FR and give prices.

But, from what I know, some KTVs offer ladies from Thai, Myanmar, Laos and China too.

KTVs starts as early as 5pm and closes just as early as 6am.

Overall, supply of ladies is definitely way more than demand, just a matter of what makes you tick and how many you can tahan taking.
