RE: The Bangkok Thread
I still remember when Route had no cover for farang with a Thai DL. I won't go to ANY club in Thailand with a dual pricing policy and I know a lot of guys will say, it's only 300฿ or 500฿, but f...k man they are basically saying; we don't want you in our club and if you want to come, we'll tax you.

RE: The Bangkok Thread
On this up and coming trip i'm going to endeavor to make it back to girls' rooms more often rather than bring them back to my hotel. I shall save my hotel for the real special ones.

1. I enjoy visiting the Bangkok suburbs and it make me feel like Captain Kirk - Boldly going where no Farang has gone before

2. The embarrassment i suffer walking past the reception desk when i bring back a different woman to my hotel room every day and sometimes twice a day is lessened off..

3. It makes me feel like Bear Grylls by going native and deep into the wilderness.. nothing like a dodgy looking condo block full of 3000baht fan rooms. The youger student types tend to stay in these places but there's plenty of Thais with money that live in pretty decent condos!

Do you get shy when buying condoms from 7/11 too? Big Grin

No need to be embarrased about this, nearly every single farang engages in this behavior. Nothing to worry about you're bringing in ladyboys then of course the receptionists will have a good laugh Big Grin

Not too much if im staying in a popular Sukhumvit hotel with lots coming and going all the time but i have a favorite spot in Ratchada that is a quiet residence and mostly has families from other parts of Asia staying so sometimes i feel like the only white guy there and i can "feel" all their eyes on me when i walk through the door and im with yet another different woman. Makes me cringe.

You feel embarrassed because what you're doing is immoral. You should immediately go back to your home country and marry some ball busting bitch who with a triple digit notch count. Because that's what real men do! Banana

Never actually ridden a motorbike but I would like to learn how to for my trip I'm Asia. I'm assuming BKK is the worst place to start learning? I'm better off trying on a less populated thai island?

I've driven bikes for a couple of years now and I still refuse to in Bangkok. Just too dangerous and the worst drivers you'll ever see. Stay safe!

PM me for accommodation options in Bangkok.

Swell's Motorbiking on Thai Island Tips.

1. Little or no front brake. Left hand is back brake, Right hand is front brake.
2. Just cruising speed. Don't race.
3. Try not to ride in or after it has rained.
4. Buy gas from gas station, it is cheaper than the bottles on side of road.
5. Rent the oldest most damage motorbike. Cheaper to rent and if you lay the bike down cheaper to fix. I crash about a month ago and only paid for the mirror.
6. Take pics when renting.
7. Rent by the week or month. Better value.
8. Storage compartment under seat for beer.

When sober you can fit yourself and two girls on motorbike. When drunk, let the girl drive. (only if she is Thai)

Have fun. Motorbike is the only way to tour a Thai Island. Freedom.

I would be extremely cautious about driving a bike in Thailand. They have one of the highest traffic fatality rates in the world. Certainly I wouldn't do it in Bangkok, as Taxis are cheap and plentiful.

As for the islands...well I have done it and lived to tell the tale. It is convenient. Its just anecdotal, but one of my best mates got rammed by a car and broke his leg badly while I was there. He was lucky to be alive quite frankly. After a few days in a Thai hospital and $7,500 ticket back home (he had to get a first class seat so his cast would fit), that was enough for me to call it quits. Nothing spoils your time in the land of smiles faster than that!

Oh, almost forgot the best part! He had to bribe both the cops and the owner of car that hit him for "damages"! They said the accident was his fault and they would charge him with reckless driving or whatever unless he paid a "fine" plus the damages of the car that hit him. It wasn't too much, he never really told me the amount, but add insult to injury! As the farang, unless there is concrete proof, if a local hits you then you will almost certainly be found at fault in any accident.

Good advice from Swell though, if you are going to rent one be damn sure to take multiple photos AND videos of the bike, in front of the owner, before you take it out. This applies to anything you rent in Thailand, especially mopods (and jet skis)! They will often try to charge you with any damage on the bike claiming you did it even if the scratch was there unless you have proof it was there first. They have probably charged 20 farangs before you for the scratch / dent and will charge the next 20 after you also. So take lots of pictures if you do rent.

Good luck and be safe!

Mentavious, I'll be back in Koh Chang in a week. I'll teach you to ride.

Definitely learn to ride in a less populated area. Not in Bangkok, and not even in Chiang Mai or Chiang Rai. It also helps to spend enough time in Thailand to learn and observe how Thais drive their cars and motorbikes. Then do what they do.

Even then, it's still dangerous. Just today, I almost ran over a dog because he wouldn't move out of the way, and I didn't have much space to my right with a car right next to me. Stupid dog.

One of his good friends there died in a motor bike accident.

He never rode one after that.

Chiang Rai isn't a bad place to learn to ride a scooter comparatively speaking. I just spent three weekends in the last month and a half riding the scooter I bought my wife in PP and they ride a million times worse in PP than anywhere in Thailand.

One of the best ways to experience Northern Thailand is by motorbike, but best to learn to ride in your home country before you arrive in SEA. You can learn to ride a scooter here, but I would recommend having experience if you plan on riding a big bike in Thailand. If anyone decides to rent in Chiang Rai, send me a PM and I will tell you which shops are the best to rent. Also cheaper to buy a new bike here compared to CM or even BK. There are 7 Honda dealerships within a 2 block radius of Phahonyothin Rd in the center of town.

I also wrote a post on the CM thread on how to obtain your Thai DL. That said, it is dangerous to ride a bike in Thailand and out of the 600 students I teach at the college, 2 have died since the start of the semester in October and another 3 or 4 have spent time, or are now in an ICU.

I hope none of you were the white boys rolling into Route 66 tonight spam approaching like crazy and thinking you'll get somewhere. Was truly embarrassing and makes everyone else's job so much harder to seperate themselves from that. Luckily enough, I didn't make one approach all night and one of the best looking girls in the club approached me because I was just dancing and having a good time. Lesson for all you spam approaches out there who think you're white gods just because you walk into a Bangkok club.

So what's the general consencous on ONYX? Was considering checking it out tonight but there's a 500 baht entrance fee and I'm sure Ive read that the Thais in there don't really like Foreigners and it's difficult to pull solo.

Nope. What's that like? Is it a big venue? What type of music/girls does it attract?

I tried Onyx a few times. Only pulled once. The girls are wayyyy hotter, but it's way more cliques. People literally go there in groups of 12. That's hard to infiltrate, especially solo.

You have to run real high energy. 500 baht is negligible. Use it towards drinks. I'll stop by in there soon again. But don't expect much unless you are very good looking and run tight night game. Really need both.

I went to Onyx early 2016 and wrote about it here:
https://www.rooshvforum.com/thread-32193...pid1183760

Basically, I would be careful in there. I'm Asian and had two drinks thrown at me by Thai guys who looked like they wanted to kill me (my approach is not lowkey tho)

Went to Beam tonight. Wasn't really impressed as the venue only had 2 small dance floors and there weren't many targets. Quite a few western guys in there as well. Closed at 2am on the dot and some girls tried to drag me to Demo but I chose to get some fried chicken and go home to sleep instead.
