  1. Sorry the urination sign is my fault, I was drunk and it was dark, but I thought I did it quietly.....555
  2. Are you really older than 12? That's the age most kids grow out of fart jokes
  3. I've not got checked baggage traveling light this time. I normally check in a pack which holds heaps of things I never actually wear or use in Thailand. The actual time in the air is about 18 hours, have two stops on each leg adding another 4 hours in total. If it saves me several hundred dollars I can handle it. I've never bothered with seat allocation I can sit anywhere as long as I don't get stuck between 2 extra large people. It hasn't happened so far.
  4. I have been looking at flights all year for late June. Last year in May I got flights for $1,500 return. This year I looked and looked and couldn't get it for less than $2,500. Then I decided to try Booking.com who I use for accommodation. I got return flights with reasonable (not good) travel times for $1,900. So $400 more than last year, but $600 less than travel agents or airlines themselves.
  5. I loved the story about the guy who didn't want to pay for sex. Thanks for brightening up my day.
  6. Dozens of cars with Samoan flags flying proudly here, and quite a few houses have them too.
  7. I watched the final of the Women's Rugby World cup between the Black Ferns (NZ) and the White Roses (England). Probably the best game of rugby I've ever seen. Drama from beginning to end. A lot less messing around than in the men's games and two teams who were just overjoyed to be there playing. I won't tell you the final score as you may be able to find the game on YouTube or somewhere else.
  8. Thanks for posting this, looks a very interesting place. Have you been to the Chinese temple in Sattahip? It's another place full of interesting stuff, I particularly liked the statues of the various Taoist deities.
  9. 3 years ago my daughter returned from Melbourne at Christmas paying $360. The cheapest flight she can find this year is $1200. She's deferring her trip for a couple of months at least.
  10. Be bloody sad if you couldn't find good Thai food in city in Thailand.
  11. I love the guy with "SECRET SERVICE" on his front....not much of a secret is it.
  12. Thanks for the photos RT. Its not surprising you don't remember the others after Kink, it's best to have that as your final destination of the night. Treetown comes alive after dark. The Buakhau and LK Metro are the area to visit. Walking St is a waste of time in my opinion.
  13. 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.
  14. One of the things I love about Thailand is its total inconsistency. A place is wonderful one night and humdrum the next. But it doesn't matter as there are plenty more places and it will all be different tomorrow. I'm travelling with a mate and we can't work out how some places work. Went to Kink were sitting by the naked girls on stage section. Guys behind us and on both sides were getting personal attention from girls. New guy would arrive and a girl would be on him in seconds. We sat there alone and got no attention whatsoever. Went to Sugar Sugar and were swamped with very lovely
  15. We went to Heaven Above and it was packed with punters and naked girls. Too crowded for us. The club next door was deserted. Club Fate had some lovely friendly girls.
  16. I'm finding out later this week. I get the Line of ones that have potential to be more than short time. A quick video chat soon sorts out really doctored photos. Roll on 1am Thursday when I hope to be going for a walk around the Buakhau area.
  17. I watched a video filmed on Walking St a couple of days ago. There were cars and motorbikes parked along the street and cars driving down it regularly. Admittedly there were few people walking along so called Walking St. Video of Buakhau and Treetown taken about the same time showed lots more people. I'm expecting we'll spend most of our time there after we arrive next week.
  18. Bugger....I arrive a week too late. It's great that you are re-opening. I look forward to going there for a meal and to enjoy the view.
  19. Sorry I can't give advice on the driving as I have never hired a car to drive myself. If things go wrong you are in a power of shit so I'd rather hire a local to drive me. But I can highly recommend going to the archeological dig at Ban Chiang if you are into history and wanting to know more about Thailand. You will gain much face with any Thai lady you take there.
  20. That's what I do here at home. I have no interest in going to Chatachuck or any large market anywhere in the world.
  21. I hate shopping, especially in crowded places. I go to buy a specific item, know the shop that sells it and the price I'm willing to pay. In, select, pay, and get the hell out of there. The first couple of times Thai markets were fun and interesting. Now I avoid them unless someone I'm with wants to go, or to buy food. I'd rather go for a walk on the beach or around the local area. The bigger the market the worse it is.
  22. Yes NZ dollars. Crossing the Tasman adds quite a bit to fares.
  23. My friend and I have just booked return flights from Christchurch NZ to Singapore then Bangkok for $1,500 each. That's over $100 cheaper than when I last flew in 2019. Only 1 stop with 3 hours one way and 1.5 hours on the return. It's brilliant. The flights can be changed at any time until a week before departure for no additional charge other than difference in the flights.
  24. Bloody foreigners coming in here taking our girlfriends....
