Sandalwood, a cafe and information centre, is the place to go for local info. It's located south of the village on the main road.
Local expert and guide Tom Tom (09 42246 2904) can arrange a day trip or snorkelling excursion, and rents motorcycles (K10,000 per day). If he’s not at the Sandalwood cafe in the market, he can also be found via the Shwe Hin Tha Hotel.
There's a branch of the KBZ Bank in the south of the village, and a few other ATMs around, including one outside Emerald Sea Resort.
