Cowboy Town

Sadao or more commonly known by Malaysians as Dannok is the first Thai town you will see once you cross the Malaysian-Thailand border (Sadao Border). If you are coming from Malaysia, once you have passed the Thai border, its mere 5 metres walk away. Mainly visited by Malaysians who wants to do a weekend getaway.

The first impression that you might get is, "what the heck is this place?". Where is all the those beautiful Thai places I see in National geographics? The answer is Dannok is just the tip of the ice-berg. In fact i personally don't consider Dannok as Thailand. Just Malaysia with a Thai touch, if you get what i mean.

Bring no expectations to this place because it has nothing to offer and thus will bring you no dissapointments...

Dannok during the day

During the day, it looks as if its a cowboy town.
