  1. Outlawed some places to prevent the spread of infections http://blogs.discovermagazine.com/discoblog/2011/02/28/experts-shocking-warning-dont-let-fish-chew-on-your-feet/
  2. A thousand minutes of documentary film making at it's finest. This movie was riveting. I remember registering for the selective service a day after my eighteenth birthday, thank God I wasn't called. https://www.imdb.com/title/tt1877514/
  3. Heres a Patpong update: Ive been a customer of Kings Castle I for 25 years and the owners never invested any money to improve the property, until this year. See my nostalgic 1992 trip report here: http://www.pattayatalk.com/forums/topic/62014-bangkok-trip-report-21-years-ago-w-photos/ Amazingly, Kings Castle I has been completely remodeled, with a new exterior sign and fully renovated interior. For those that prefer the old way, Kings Castle II next door is still the same. On any given night, these bars may have as good a lineup as any GoGo in Thailand (not to be confused with Kings Corner, which has ladyboys). Sharks had opened a branch on the Surawong end but it didnt last very long. It seems like the hawker in front of Barbar Fetish Club has been there forever. I've never entered this bar. Club Electric Blue is no longer a GoGo but now a high-end Steakhouse with prices that rival El Gauchos. Dont know about the quality. While examining the menu, the manager assured me they had the best steak on the Soi. I told him Le Bouchon was pretty good. The Smokin Pug was my favorite restaurant in the area, but they moved closer to Lumpini Park last year, so I usually head over to Samboon Seafood for a crab dinner, its about a 15 minute walk. The third Bangkok Hooters now occupys what was previously Flam OBriens Irish Pub, on Soi Thaniya at the foot of the BTS. Sorry, no pictures this post, but I did manage to leave my camera bag (with over 85,000 baht worth of equipment) in Pink Panther. I usually order a Long Island Iced Tea there and, thinking it was probably diluted, I ordered a second when the Bar had some real cuties. Perhaps the drink wasnt as watered down as I thought? Fortunately, my waitress chased me down the street like I was trying to run out on the check.
  4. Here's touring MHS province via motorcycle
  5. Business Class has more legroom, economy is comfortable Ferry arrives at Khao Takiab, taxi mafia to the Hilton is 250 baht. The two bar areas are Soi Bintabaht (near the Hilton), and Soi 80. https://www.thethailandlife.com/pattaya-to-hua-hin-ferry-service https://www.tripadvisor.com/Attractions-g297922-Activities-Hua_Hin_Prachuap_Khiri_Khan_Province.html Cha-Am is another beach community a half hour north.
  6. Its hard to find good corned beef in Thailand, but the Reuben was good at P on R
  7. I enjoyed the Hilton. Centrally located, can be affordable off-season, has a large pool with a swim-up bar. Pattaya is full of beer drinkers. Hua Hin is full of wine drinkers.
  8. Around 1800 now, about 3000 high season The Ferry had about 80 passengers on this Sunday afternoon. It has capacity for over 400, including VIP rooms you can rent for 14000 that can accommodate up to 8 people. They have stewardesses coming around with coffee, but I take the catamaran service to Koh Kood and a 2 hour trip there costs 350.
  9. It's difficult to find good music in Thailand, except for jazz. The late King was a big fan and good with a saxophone. Took the train from Hua Lamphong station last weekend, five hour journey in 3rd class cost 94 baht. Stayed at the Amari The festival featured two stages, on the beach for the international acts and a smaller stage for local artists, lasted two days, and was all FREE. This band was called Los Rumbaros, a Thai spin on Latin-flavored jazz. This guy called himself The Keyboard Mafia Here is Pang, the SaxPackGirl, with her band Pang, the SaxPackGirl, jamming with the Keyboard Mafia Acoustic jazz with the Sydney Wasurat Trio The Beach Stage featured the diva, Simone Kopmajer This band was called Shakatak, they played elevator music so I didn't stay for the full set. Otherwise, the town was pretty quiet Soi Binabaht very quiet Steak and Eggs for breakfast at Murphys Black Fettuccine Tamarind Market Sunday I took the Hua Hin-Pattaya Ferry, crossing in 2 hours for the hefty price of 1250. This was my first venture to the Hua Hin Jazz Festival, now I'll be attending every year. In 1973, I went to see Miles Davis in concert in Milwaukee. He didn't show up. For more photos of Hua Hin, see http://www.pattayatalk.com/forums/topic/63761-a-few-days-at-the-hua-hin-hilton/
  10. Heres a bloggers take on Pai https://whatsonsukhumvit.com/complete-guide-to-pai-thailand/
  11. Ruled illegal for daily and weekly rentals. Im glad to see this happen. View Talay 6 was a great place to live until they turned it into a hotel. https://thepattayanews.com/2018/05/16/thai-court-rules-airbnb-against-the-law-in-thailand-for-daily-and-weekly-rentals-banned/
  12. Long prison sentences for corrupt cops in the Mae Hong Song underage prostitution scandal. http://www.nationmultimedia.com/detail/national/30343420
  13. Chevrolet has a booth but doesn't market the Corvette in Thailand. Cars are taxed based upon engine capacity. I've only seen one here, this from last year's show. I sold my Mustang V8 Convertible when I moved to Thailand and, similarly, have only ever seen one Ford Mustang here, what a classic beauty.
  14. If you like tits check out the Pioneer Rocket Sound booth. Tits are best enjoyed in stereo. Here's a new concept, training wheels for your motorcycle. And there were some cars And lots of girls I took a coffee break at Flan O'Brien's downstairs (Irish Coffee, of course) And more girls This is my favorite. She was previously featured in this thread in post #29 (June 2013) 2nd & 12th photos, post #30 (Nov 2013) 22nd photo, post #46 (April 2014) 18th & 25th photos. Who's your favorite?
