So how has Route 66, and RCA in general, been since those reports of police raids a few weeks back?

I was there two weeks ago on a Tuesday. Everything looked normal to me, it was 10-20% less full than most other nights, but I think that's more to do with the fact that several places have ladies night on Tuesday than the raids a few weeks back.

The raid was more of a 'one-off' thing that a weekly or monthly occurrence.
I've been a couple of times since and have to say that the ratios have been terrible. Other guys have also commented how RCA seems to be going down the toilet of late. Hopefully it's just a temporary blip.
Good to hear Afarang. Do I correctly recall hearing that they've made the place a lot smaller by closing off some areas?

Foreigners or just men in general? I've always wondered why the content of this forum isn't exclusive to members. Seems that a lot of lurkers catch on to these venues and destroy them.

Foreigners mostly, but it seemed that there were way less Thai girls out. Anyway, I'll let others chip in who go more regularly than I.

I agree with your point and previously suggested that the Travel forum be made private for repped members only.

I've been to the Philippines many, many times, though it's charm is starting to wear off and I'm considering trying out other places. I've been reading through the thread and was hoping I could get some of your opinions on this. I know it's kind of selfish for me to crash in here and ask for help right away, but I'll trade Phils info for BKK info if anyone wants.

I'm planning on taking a few months off to travel, and I'm considering BKK as one of my destinations. Not sure if I will actually go, or if I do, how long I'll stay. BKK appeals to me since it has good food (I love Thai/spicy food), it's relatively modern, cheap, has beaches, and doesn't too sound hard to get laid. I will pass on temples and parks unless I'm really into the culture and history of a place, though I'll go out of my way to see a place if it's truly a unique spot on the globe.

I'm not overly concerned with getting laid or chasing quality, though it's always a plus. As time goes on, I'm moving away from purely chasing notches, and more towards spending a good time and connecting with feminine women. From what I've read, it's going to be hard to do that with Thai girls from their limited English and my nonexistent Thai. But if it's easy enough, I'd be all about banging 6/7s, and I'm not too picky (I actually have a thing for SEA women). Not really into nightgame as much, and I generally focus on online. I'm pretty short (5'6), but in shape, and generally dress nicely and come off as educated.

Based on the above, do you guys think it'd be worth it for me to come to BKK for a while? If not, I'll probably just pass through a few days to grab a beer with some of you and get a quick idea of the place. Insights are much appreciated.
^I think so. Bangkok will have the highest area of English speaking girls in Thailand, and is a huge flight hub for cheap flights across Asia should you change your mind. With a little bit of effort you should be able to find a Thai girl you can connect with.

Bangkok does not have a beach, you will need to travel 2-3 hours to get near a beach.

It is one of the main drawcards to this forum, love it or hate it.

I and many others joined this forum initially because of the travel section.

I do see what you mean though, maybe we can open a Bangkok discussion on one of the restricted forums?

I can't say I've seen that much change in Route over the last year, it's always had a fair amount of foreign guys, more lonely planet to blame than roosh though. It was never a big secret. The entry fee only exists as a deterrent to backpackers who didn't want to spend.

For me Onyx (and its previous incarnations) has always been far better talent wise, they've ditched the requirement for physical passports that they put in place after the raid which is good. Still see far less western males in there than Route.
RCA in general and Route 66 in particular has had more and more farang over the years. Pre 2009 the place was paradise but every year the ratios get worse with more foreign guys partying there on a regular basis. That said plenty of clubs in the BK metro area where you can go on any given night and be the only foreign guy there.
I'll be in Bangkok for a week, what area should I stay?

Have you read through this thread or used the search engine? Not leaving the best impression when you ask an open ended question that can be solved in 5min of research.
Stay somewhere around Nana Plaza and don't bother leaving that area. There are no girls anywhere else. You need to go to Walking Street, Pattaya for that.

This thread has gone mad snarky anyone would think that no one who comes to bkk is getting laid....

If you're referring to the response to the 3 post member who asked where to stay...

It's just courteous to give a little more info isn't it.

I think of forums as real life forums. Ie you have to put in a little effort to get people to invest back.
Has anyone tried purchasing a water gun and walking around shooting pretty girls with it during the holdiday? I still haven't seen anyone with a water gun! I'm staying near Phrom Phong bts.

This seems like a good time to do a lot of day game since the girls are off work all week?

Cheers!

Happy Songkran

Aren't you the guy who was scared to travel alone in Thailand? Do you need a hug cutie or may be some spanking from Papa Sado?

I just arrived from Makati after staying 2 months. It definitely feels a lot more modern here in BKK and the culture is way more interesting. There just is a lot more culture here than in the Phils, which is more westernized, possibly because Thailand has never been colonized.

I found the girls here really attractive when I arrived a couple days ago. This seems like a must stop trip if you haven't been here before and have a lot of time.

As far as quality, I was getting quite a bit better quality online in the Philippines. I think it's a little harder here. Probably because there's a lot more foreigners.
For day game, do you guys find direct works better in BKK or indirect?

I can say I did about 25 day game approaches, and went on about 20 online dates last year when I stayed here. The quality I got on the 25 day game approaches was superior to what I got from mass hours setting up and meeting girls online for the 20 dates. I recall towards the end of my trip, I was watching tons of pretty girls walk by me at Emporium mall while I was waiting for my online date I met at Thai friendly. She didn’t look like her photos, and was a little chubby. Also, she started off with a little bit of an attitude and tried to get me to follow her. I just ended it and was realizing that day game was probably way superior. I was sitting there timing it, and I realized an approachable girl was walking by me at least every 5 minutes during peak times. And there was no competition, at least directly.

For the last 3 days of my trip last August, I tried stopping girls over at Paragon and T 21. And opened some direct, some indirect. My online game was on Thai Friendly and Thai Cupid. Now I’m just getting started again. Wanting to do a lot more day game but also interested in hearing others experiences. And working with Tinder this time as well.

I’ll be here for a couple months if anyone wants to meet up for a cup of coffee or possibly a drink, hit me up! Also, I have a tennis racquet if anyone wants to hit sometime.

Cheers!
TG,
You're one of my favorite newer frequent posters on the travel forum, man, and you've always got a lot of interesting insights. I'd suggest to you that your insights, often, are more in depth and show more understanding then much of the other clutter about Asia (which I probably have spent too much time reading).

I'd suggest to you strongly that you make a point to visit a bunch of places and see what you prefer. Of course, hit the usual suspects (Bangkok, Jakarta - there's a reason they're held in high regard for various reasons, BKK in particular) but don't sleep on many of the other less travelled locations.

Beyond Borders and I have made the point about the sheer size of these countries and the benefits of getting a bit off the beaten path. Thailand is heavily travelled, tho many areas aren't. Hua Hin may attract a lot of tourists, but what about the beaches a few towns south in Pran Buri. Or less travelled islands like Koh Chang. Not many guys have been to East Thailand where all these cute Isaan girls originate from.

Cambodia is worth a jaunt, for those who like a bit of grit. Malaysia is largely undiscussed on the forum, and I find it to be one of the best values and most pleasant places to travel (both West Malaysia and Borneo), with great food and things to do (scuba, jungle treks, climbing, beaches). Girls may be a bit more difficult to pull on single night lays but I doubt given your write-ups that you'd be so focused on notch counts. I recently spend time in Sumatra - I brought someone with me for part of the trip, which was interesting with some beautiful scenery and inexpensive great cuisine - I'd recommend that kind of trip for you during your time off of work.

Anyway, you don't need to excuse yourself to join the BKK forum, you've provided plenty of intel on the Phils thread and Im guessing many of us have a look at both.

Yesterday I didn't notice anything, but today, it's crazy on soi 24. Waterguns and hoses everywhere. I got splashed several times!

I saw them splashing guys driving by on motor bikes too hahaSmile I guess this is not news to the locals here.

Happy
Songkran!

I think if you are looking for connection with a feminine girl, Bangkok is a right place. But you will need more than 2 days for that. Be careful they fall in love quickly.
English is not as good as in Manila, but you can find a good speaker in a medium class. Aim for students, they speak better English too.

I you are only willing to see and experience unique tourist attractions in Thailand, and have limited time, I suggest you do one day trip to Ayutthaya. Old Capital. 40 minutes drive from BKK. There you will get the feel of old Buddhist temples in the jungles and get to ride on an elephants. Grab a date (you are willing to connect with) with you, so you save some time. Also it is nice to visit temples in Bangkok with your dates. Majority of them will be Buddhists and they will show you some rituals, great cultural exchange. Temple of lying Buddha is a must see IMO.
It is also very funny to see how Thai girls avoid coming next to Buddhist monks and if they pass by you they will kind of try to hide behind you.
Another good day trip is the Erawan National Park near Kanchanaburi. Just google the pictures. It is a great place to relax, hike a bit and swim in the natural waterfall pools. Similar to the Kawasan Falls on Cebu Island, in case you have been there, but a lot bigger. If you leave Bangkok early in the morning around 6 or 7am you can reach the falls around 11am and then return to Bangkok in the evening. The best way is to take a minivan from Victory Monument to Kanchanburi and then take the big bus to the Erawan Falls from the main bus station there.
Vinny,

Probably because Buddhist monks are not supposed to touch women, nor desire them. So, out of admiration for the monks, the girls take it upon themselves to make it less likely to happen.
