Ladyboys on streets late night/early morning - either alone or in pairs/groups

These fuckers are actually pickpockets more than whores. Was just down in Phuket and this tall aggressive one saw me walking back to the hotel alone and blocked my path, followed, hassled, not taking no for an answer.

The cunts get in real close and may try to hug you - what they are really doing is getting in close so they can slip a hand in your pocket and grab whatever they can. This bitch in Phuket got my lighter (a really nice one, birthday gift) - had a phone nabbed a few years back by a pair too -

did not learn my lesson! Use real force to push them away if they don't listen to words. Just remember though, they are men and weirdly I've been told, often they are ex Muay Thai fighters so... caution at all times.

But if you find yourself being encircled, pushed and shoved just a little too much, get your hands right in your pockets and GTF out of there. One will go for back pocket wallet, the other front pocket phone. Just be aware.

Where did you go in Patong? How was the pro to not-pro ratio in the clubs?

Only went to one nightclub called Illuzion - hooker central from what I could tell but I got there late. Loads of douchebags with 3 litre bottles of vodka, splashing the cash... I dunno, maybe that's some people's cup of tea but it seemed like the worst place in the world! Haha. Patong is just a whore-mongers paradise TBH. Same as Pattaya or Soi Cowboy. REALLY pushy door promoters though, makes Soi Cowboy seem like a stroll in the park. Maybe coz it was off-season? Loads of fucking LBs everywhere, pushy cunts too.

I did see quite a few attractive Western girls in the streets, did only a couple of approaches, no traction. Too many God-damned handsome farangs about! Who are they?! Rich kids travelling the world on daddy's credit card? Fuck knows. It got boring very quickly.

RE: Bangkok Datasheet 2014.
Hello, I just moved to Bangkok 1 month ago. Any updates on the current nightlife? The only 2 places I currently like to go to are Demo and Route 66 and as we all know at Demo it's very difficult to pull and Route 66 is packed with foreigners and farang hunters nowadays.

There are a couple of decent clubs on Khao San. Just go there and you'll find them, I can't remember the names.

RE: Bangkok Datasheet 2014.
Thought I'd share a little Thai friendly trick for those of us "cheap Charlies" who don't want to subscribe!

We are limited to one message every 10 minutes which is annoying but actually, given the generally slow response time of Thai girls and the lack of amazing talent on TF, it's doable.

Just get the Line or Whatsapp details as soon as is socially acceptable and you're home free!

OK, the tip:

If you click on a chick and see this:

   

(usually any girl, even if quite ugly, with tits on show, will generate so much interest that you will see this message)

you cant message her unless a subscriber - wrong!

Open her profile in a separate tab (ctrl and click on PC, Cmd and click on Mac)

Open separate tabs for all the girls you like with this message on them.

Now on a different tab, message any girl not hot enough to get this message. Message her anything , who cares.

Refresh her page and you will see a message saying, you cannot message her for another 10 minutes (with countdown)

Go to the tab with the hot girl, and hit the browser refresh button - you will see that she too now has the 10 minute countdown, even though she's a hottie who needs a subscription.

When the 10 mins is up, you can type your message in the hot girl's message box and fire it off - refresh! Do not navigate away from the page or you will have to go through the process again!

You still have to wait 10 minutes between messages (no getting away from that) but at least you can message the hotties as a non-subscriber, and you don't end up like one of these shameful buffoons:

   

Good luck!

RE: Bangkok Datasheet 2014.
Just wanted to publish a quick update about my experience setting up a condo recently.

I've moved to TC Green in Rama 9. It's literally across from RCA. Has restaurants, laundry, 711 on site. 5 mins from Central Mall. Gym, Basketball Court, Pool and library/office as well if you want to escape condo.

I'm not a huge fan of "Shoebox" apartments, and even though my 1bedroom is 40SQM it feels big enough for me as it's fairly open plan.

What I'm especially happy with is the price. 16.5K per month for a new and fairly high end building. Other places in the area around this size don't much cheaper unless you want a 10+ year old building with shitty or no amenities.

So all in all a good deal.

I won't always be in town, so if any highly repped members wanted to stay, I'd rent it out for 1,300 THB a night plus cleaning fee. PM me for more details.

This post is spot on CodyB always delivers the sweet 18 year old pussy to your mouth.

I've stayed at TC green many times and it's great. I stayed at another condo closeby and it was subpar. On a two week trip to bangkok once I didn't visit anywhere except TC green and RCA I swear. Massage and chokeslam for days.

Unfortunately the scene has degraded drastically, thus I would recommend staying elsewhere closer to sukhumvit and away from RCA.

Plus CodyB is charging a premium I've stayed at a studio and a 1bdr and were max 24$ a night. Stay elsewhere for bangkok.

I am staying in that area as well. Don't want to post the name of my condo but I am very happy with it. Definitely not as new as yours, but I only pay 12k per month and also have a 40sqm 1BR apartment, 7-11, laundry, a pool, a gym and a 5-10 minutes walk to the MRT and Central Rama 9.

Reading about the rents you guys are paying coupled with my recent trips there - definitely getting more expensive to live in even semi central areas of BK.

RE: Bangkok Datasheet 2014.
Doing preliminary planning for a trip I'm making. I plan on hitting Bangkok (in addition to Philippines, Vietnam and Taiwan) for a month. What are my options in terms of finding a place to stay for a month? I've been looking at rent prices to get a close idea, and the estimation seems to be 500USD for a place in the city centre. Thanks for the help guys.

While real estate agents put on a brave face in the early stages of negotiations, their tough masks collapse like a house of cards when they discover you have lots of decent options at or even below your budget. It seems they have to hold their ground on prices (or at least stay within 20% of list price), otherwise prices will take a metro-wide downward death spiral. Some agents do suck, though. My first agent was somewhat delusional and a bit rude, so I nexted her and found another agent through a friend and he was more than helpful.

Moral of the story? Some good deals can be found with a little due diligence and some flexibility. Just don't be too rigid or too lazy.

I can say I am one of the people who walked past one of these bombs! I was in Thailand for 10 days. I did a running on the beach in Patong daily early morning. On my LAST day there, I was on the beach just before 7 am. 7:30 am, so just moments after I left that spot, a bomb exploded where I walked just earlier. I think I am officially the only rooshv member that can claim to have intercepted one of these bombs unless someone else comes forward too. I am sure I am the only one because in fact also, the bomb exploded during the quiet morning when I just so happy to be one of the few people on that beach doing exercise. Even locals were scarce at the time, but I was there just before the bomb exploded and I must have walked right beside a bomb without even knowing it! Highly coincidental because I left the next day but the bomb incident fit into my 10 day stay! and Patong beach made front page news worldwide while I was still in it!

Foreigners who flirt with death (or die) in Thailand is not an exclusive club. I've also come close to checking out permanently on two occasions as well.

Interestingly, if you have family back home who would be saddened by your premature departure, they would probably fall into even greater depression once they realize how quickly the Thai authorities want the incident and news (if there was any) of your death to go away.

RE: Bangkok Datasheet 2014.
Has the rainy season changed the nightlife dynamic at all? I'm heading back to BKK on Tuesday and was wondering if that should impact where to stay, go out, etc. I was previously there in January. I'm also contemplating a few days in Chiang Mai to check it out - more as a tourist than gamewise.

Also, if anyone wants a wing, let me know.

Read Afarangabroad.com, he has several lesser known apartments mentioned and reviewed.

Actually, looks to me like rent might be dropping, saw a furnished 1 bedroom in The Clover Thonglor at only 19.000THB that is very cheap, usually would go for at least 25K, more likely 30K.

RE: Bangkok Datasheet 2014.
I'm paying 30K in Ari (which most Thais consider is sooooo far!)

It isn't - it's 5 stops to Siam. In any other city in the world that would be considered totally central.

It's more than I wanted to pay - I'd have rather paid 15-20K given that I'm not even working here, and also my contract is for 1 year which is a pain in the ass coz with 2 months deposit, that's 60K ready to be lost if I need to leave before that time.

I saw a few places this time and 30K seemed pretty standard for a nice place. I took this place almost on the spot because I liked it as soon as I got in - the decor, the view, the pool (gym is shit - just running machines etc) but you'll never get everything you want, I just wanted to be settled somewhere I liked ASAP.

It's also literally right next to the BTS and that's why I pay so much more. It was top of my list after having lived a good 10 minutes walk from the BTS last time which got really boring, fast.

Ari is an awesome area - loads of street food right underneath me, plus many upscale restaurants (Thai, Japanese, Korean, rib shack, steak house, big Chinese restaurants, burger bar) tonnes of cafes, Italian place for pizza.

Great bars, where lost of creative Thais go out on weekends (kinda like Thong Lor but without so much showing off of wealth)

There's a McDonalds up the road if the need should arise for a cheeseburger and fries! A Villa Market right next to the BTS, a Fuji sushi place, Boots chemist, nice famous Thai restaurant, some trendy hair salon called Never Say Cutz (street style, yo!)

Not that many farang, just a couple now and again. I like this now. Sukhumvit gets boring with all the tourists and bell-ends in flip-flops and Chang t-shirts.

Chatuchak market is two stops away on the BTS, where there are also bars at night-time (yet to explore this) there is Central Ladprao shopping mall nearby (where I was successful in getting a bank account with Krungsri bank with just my condo agreement and tourist only visa - that's the yellow bank)

Also, from here is a short taxi ride to the immigration at Chaeng Wattana which makes the dreaded visa extension so much easier. Also not far to DMK airport by taxi if you want a trip to Phuket or whatever. Only 2 stops on the BTS to Victory Monument for all the vans that connect to the other parts of Thailand. And 2 stops the other way to Mo Chit where there are also loads more vans that go to various places!

Opposite my condo is an older building that has a basic but quite good gym - membership is 1500 baht a month, or 3600 for 3 months, 6,000 for 6 months. It's not bad. Has a big pool too and yoga room. Enough for what a gym newbie like me needs. Bench, squats, pull up bar, dip bar, dumbells, small multigum for lat pulldowns etc.

All in all, I like Ari.

It's modest distance from downtown helps prevent me from being tempted to just wander out of my home and get easy access to Western bars - this encourages me to stay in a bit more and get on with my work - the reason I'm here!!

^^ Ari is great. I used to live very close to there and I am very fond of the area. Go check out JJ Green when you get a chance. It's always been good but now it has expanded and is even better. Great food, places to drink and cool stuff to buy for your condo. Also not too many foreigners at all so you will be quite the novelty. I really enjoy the vibe there and is one of the things I miss most when I reflect on living in that area, (close to Central Ladprao).
