  1. The Black Pagoda group of bars at Patpong 2 ran a all-u-can-drink promotion over Songkran. For 900 baht, you were provided as many bottles of Singha-Tiger-Chang-Leo you wanted in any of their four bars (XXX Lounge, The Strip, Black Pagoda, and the new Black Bar adjacent Black Pagoda, just above the Patpong Museum). I decided to try it out, although I usually prefer Heineken or San Miguel (or Hoegaarden or Stella Artois). I'm surprised more bar groups don't try this type of promotion as a way of capturing their customers. Normally, I would have visited Bada Bing, King's Castle, and Pink Pan

  2. Soi Cowboy is slowly coming back to life. Dollhouse and Tilac now have dancers on stage, about a half dozen anyway. Crazy House has the best vibe and drawing the largest crowds, with dancing downstairs now. Dancing on two floors in Baccara, so I can sit in my orchestra seat, look up and see a dozen bare bottoms, while sipping my Stella Artois or Hoegarrden. In my last post I mentioned a new music bar called West End, it's actually called East End, I just thought it was West End because it's towards the West End of the street. Nana Plaza is still th

  3. No reason to come to town with the bars closed, but I stopped in for a few days to check the current status. Stayed at the Hard Rock Hotel, where I've never stayed before. It's not guest friendly, lots of families stay there for the same reason I did, the massive pool. I even shot a few hoops There was a buy-1-get-1-free happy hour at the pool bar but drinks weren't very good. Room was a decent standard. There was a sound system but with a CD player. No bluetooth support to use my Apple Music

  4. I wasn't ready to return to Bangkok yet so booked a few nights at The Wave. The Wave is a boutique hotel wedged between View Talay 6 and the Bay View Resort. Some may be put off by the neon color scheme but I think it's pretty cool. It's more expensive than the Hard Rock Hotel, nearly double. Stopped at the food court in Central Festival for some lentil soup on the way over, used to eat lunch there frequently when I lived next door. The Wave Hotel This is the lobby The room was very comfortable

  5. I was anxious to check out this new Tree Town so headed over one late afternoon, mid-week. I was thankful for overcast sky's and mild temperatures, recently had surgery for skin cancer. I checked the price on Stella Artois and Hoegaarden at the Beer Hub, not much less than what I pay at Baccara on Soi Cowboy, where the scenery is much better. There are signs with this leafy green stuff all over town. I only smoke cigars. This must be the way... Pretty quiet at the moment, don't know about late

  6. A New York attorney representing a wealthy art collector called his client and said to him, "Saul, I have some good news and I have some bad news." The art collector replied, "I've had an awful day; let's hear the good news first." The attorney said, "Well, I met with your wife today, and she informed me that she invested $5,000 in two pictures that she thinks will bring a minimum of $15-20 million. I think she could be right." Saul replied enthusiastically, "Well done! My wife is a brilliant businesswoman! You've just made my day. Now I know I can handle the bad

  7. A very pretty young speech therapist was getting nowhere with her “Stammerers Action Group”. She had tried every technique in the book without the slightest success. No-one was improving. Finally, thoroughly exasperated, she said "If any of you can tell me, without stuttering, the name of the town where you were born, I will have wild and passionate sex with you until your muscles ache and your eyes water. So, who wants to go first?" The Englishman piped up . . . . . . . "B - B - B - B - B - B - b-irmingham." "That's no use, Trevor," said the speech therapist. "Who's ne

  9. Thought I'd add loop I usually do when updating the Shrinking Pattaya Reservoirs topic. It's a relatively easy 40km loop with minimal elevation gain. The km distance included in parenthesis above each photo corresponds to the waypoints in the Google Map at the end of this post. The starting point for the route is the railway road intersection at Soi Khao Nois. (0.0km) When you get to the sign for the Indoor Stadium, turn left. (4.8km) At the bottom of a small rise in the road turn left. (6.9km) Within a short distance of about 100m you'll make another left. Another

I mailed them on Saturday, saying what dates I wanted to fly (using my cancelled ticket from October 2020), lo and behold! I was sent my e-ticket thingy this morning! NO EXTRA COST!! Result! I "assumed" Id lost the money on this...so a right result! Just need to book a seat now, will probably book an "extra leg-room" seat, for just over 80 quid each way. Great news, I will return t

  12. Next up, Mabprachan Reservoir. On the far shore, the white structure is the water intake for the reservoir. No more having to keep dredging a deeper channel to feed water to the pumps. For many years there's been a poorly maintained dirt track by the water filtration plant. Looks like they have plans to commercialize the spot. Was surprised to see the work going on to clear this area. Hopefully it'll be another addition to the Mabprachan Reservoir Park. A new side path to the main bike path with nice looking landscaping.

  13. New gogo in the Sothern part of Soi Buakhao Walking Street New gogo at the spot who use to house Heaven Above. The name is nearly the same as it use to be and inside it has not change much. But the bar is not like HA. Heaven Club has not the same vibe as HA. Heaven Above has moved to Soi Boomerang. It is much smaller than the old bar but in the next weeks it will expand. What is needed - last night it was so crowded inside it sometime was impossible to get a seat. Right now Heaven Above is probably the No 1 bar in Pattaya.

  19. Prices in Thailand have always amazed me. I have been coming here for 15 years. I paid the same now for Areca as i did years ago. The pizza hotel on Diana is nice and only 500 baht. My rent has never gone up. I went to a girl's room on Soi 6 above a coffee shop. She pays 2k a month, has air con, shower and cleaning. Baht buses still 10. Taxis are much cheaper though that will change when the tourist return. Bar fines have increased and i dont like to cheat the owners but when they get to 1,000 baht line numbers are often exchanged. Usually the girls suggestion. I wouldn't argue tallguy's p

  20. Greetings Monkeywatchers, showaddy crap to you all, and welcome to the dawn of a bright new tomorrow (or some shit like that.) Yes, it’s finally happened! After more than two years, bars and clubs will be able to reopen on June 1 without having to pretend to be restaurants (didn’t pretend very well, did they?) Still quite a few strings attached at the moment, but one step at time eh? There’ll be dancing, singing, and before you know it you’ll be able to sit next to a girl (and if you wear a mask, you might even be able to talk to her.) Oh, the sweet taste of freedom!

  21. After a long illness, a woman died and arrived at the Gates of Heaven. While she was waiting for Saint Peter to greet her, she peeked through the Gates. She saw a beautiful banquet table. Sitting all around were her parents and all the other people she had loved and who had died before her. They saw her and began calling greetings to her - "Hello" "How are you! We've been waiting for you!" "Good to see you". When Saint Peter came by, the woman said to him "This is such a wonderful place! How do I get in?" "You have to spell a word", Saint Peter told her.

TAT has launched a new initiative to attract Indian tourists and expects at least 13,000 of them to arrive this month. The hotel industry has been told to be prepared as they may need to provide up to 500 rooms to accommodate them. Thailand has been given approval to send trainloads of fruits to China. Guess the little yellow buggers must be missing their visits to Alcazar and Tiffany’s. A Thai bloke has become the first in the cou

  26. You caused me some mental grief.... I recall that building before it became Hard Rock, but for the life of me could not remember the old name. It opened as Hard Rock around 2001 or so after substantial renovation, but I had stayed there prior and had foolishly pre-paid in Bangkok for several nights there.... That was my early days and I was a bit green around the edges, and stupidly feared arriving in Pattaya and not being able to find a room..I used to be straight on the razz, so used an agent near Nana. The hotel hit me with a joiner fee which I think was 500 baht... could have found an alt

  28. The front 80% is a standard gogo with girls dancing in bikinis...some remove their tops. The last bit has 4 to 6 girls naked and playing with each other. Every now and then one of those would join a guy watching and have a play. Neither the gogo girls nor the naked ones would make eye contact with us... I tried to go upstairs (had amazing ...expensive) time there in 2019 but was told it was closed even though there was nothing closing it off.

  33. Before i had a live in GF Thai friendly was my mainstay. 1,200-2000 all in. At one time i had 6 regulars. Too many. It takes a bit of work and screening. Was talking with a great lady talking about what we wanted. She replied "a relationship".I started to end the conversation then she wrote "or a customer". She always stayed LT. We were together for almost 2 years before she headed back to the farm.

  38. Just saw the news report on the no parking signs. Only time I've noticed traffic backed up was when cars and baht buses stopped to pick up or drop off passengers. Instead of making the entire area in front of Tree Town no parking, they could have designated a smaller section for pickups and drop offs. Agree with you on the problem of accessing the footpath from street, but that could be easily solved with a couple of small no parking areas like they have in front of the Night Bazaar on 2nd Rd.

  39. Expect prices to start increasing over the coming months. The removal of the subsidy on diesel will increase transport costs and have a knock on effect throughout the Thai economy. The worldwide supply chain problems will also feed through to prices here. Prices of imported booze such as Guinness and Magners have already gone up by around 20%. Hotel prices are currently low because of low demand, that situation will change as restrictions on tourism are removed. JMHO

  40. Well you are paying more for an accommodation that we all know is a a bit shady. The branch at the top of soi 6 is the one I have always heard of, but you have to imagine the one near immigration, just up on 2nd Rd, is in on things. You might have to buy insurance!
