Tahoen is someone special. Tahoun is a man who lives near Wat Soong. Every morning, for more than 30 years, he steps in his little boat. In this boat, there is a stove with a large kettle of clear soup on it. In a number of small drawers and pots, he has noodles, herbs, meat, sauces, daily made or bought fresh. When he passes by you can order a plate of noodles, five or six different kinds. Fresh made while you wait, and delicious. Since 2002 Tahoen stopped preparing noodles. He has bought a new house, and he is now retired.


When we write about a place, we write about what we saw and did there, and what we think about it; no more and no less.
This is not a travelguide (we are not complete), and it is neither an advice to visit or not to visit a place. Other sites can give you that information.
Our opinion about a hotel or restaurant is not ment to be a (positive or negative) review, you can find that information on other sites.
It is our description of a situation on a certain moment, influenced by our mood.
