No, this is not a shopping centre or the entertainment one has to pay for. Here’s quiet, tranquil and you’ll never see tourist crowds. It’s Holland Tulip resort that consists of several European-style buildings. And as it comes from the name – it is managed by Dutch.

Holland Tulip resort offers rooms for long-term rent (1 month+). Of course it won’t fit tourists (too far from the sea, though they offer a nice swimming pool). But one can make some pictures there, and then play a trick on your friends by persuading that during vacation you have visited not only Thailand but some European towns also.

The access to the territory is free. Despite of CCTV surveillance, you’ll be allowed to visit Holland Tulip’s territory, if you don’t break the silence and stay polite. There’s a restaurant by the pool, but it has strange opening hours, according to their website from 14:00 to 17:00. Nevertheless when I was leaving Holland Tulip resort at 14:00 the restaurant remained closed. Anyway one can act as if one had a strong will to visit their restaurant.
