I started Goodbye Boring Life roughly one year ago when this post goes online. Since that time this website have gone from having zero readers to having almost 2000 clicks per day.
Most of that traffic is from Google, but I do have some returning readers too. I’m happy for that. 🙂
One year have passed so it’s time to tell my thoughts about travel blogging.
So, do travel blogs make money?
Since I started this website last year I’ve made 2190$ on Thai Cupid and Thai Friendly sales. I’ve also made the same amount of money on different jobs that I’ve gotten because of people contacting me through this website.
Since June 2016 I’ve had 255.000 total clicks on the site. Here you can see the traffic week by week since November last year. It’s going up steadily every week. Mostly thanks to organic traffic from Google.
Is travel blogging a good way to make money?
You might think: “Having 4000 bucks extra per year sound really nice. Especially in cheap countries like Thailand”.
Well, think again…
This website have taken me hundreds of hours to set up and maintain. I have 117 blog posts as we speak and some of them are over 5000 words long. That stuff takes time to produce.
For some of the posts I have to do keyword research if I want any chance at all to rank for it in Google as it generates free traffic. I also have to do OnPage SEO like putting keywords inside the pictures, have the right amount of text under each header etc etc.
It’s actually much more work than just writing the actual post.
I think travel blogging can be a good business if you become big. However, becoming big today is very hard as the travel blog market is already over-saturated. You will only make it become rich if you have great talent and can capture people’s attentions with your amazing writing, design and photography skills.
What I WILL say is that this Goodbye Boring Life might one day get a lot more traffic from Google, if that happens, I will probably make much more money from the ads I’m running on the site. But that is in no way granted will ever happen.
Do I care that it’s not worth it?
Nope. I don’t write this blog because of the little money I make. Sure, I have nothing against the money, but I would still be writing this stuff if I didn’t make any money.
Could I make more money?
I could always write a simple e-book where I gather all my most awesome information about where to find hot girls in Bangkok etc etc, then sell it for 5 bucks or something like that. That would probably generate a good chunk per month.
I’m just too lazy to do it right now…
Should you start a travel blog?
If your intentions is to start a travel blog to make a lot of money in a short amount of time. You’re already wasting your time. You will never succeed.
If your intentions is to create something unique and interesting because you like to do it! What are you waiting for?
Personally I love small travel blogs as they are usually more honest and personal than the big ones who have to constantly think about their reputation as they have big sponsors. Small blogger don’t have to think about that.
You can sign up for domain today then start blogging 25 minutes later. However I do recommend thinking about your brand name before you jump in it. It’s important to have a brand name that is catchy, easy to remember and relevant to your topic.
Other types of niche sites
Setting up a website that gets a couple of thousands clicks per day is not that hard.
I have two more websites (not about travel) that have much more traffic than this side. I obviously wont tell you about those as I spent a ton of time doing keyword research to make it work. I also failed several times with poorly thought out concept.
Do your research. Find your niche. Buy the domain. Set up a few pages and some blog posts. Get traffic from Google by getting backlinks. Backlinks makes you rank. Find something you can sell with the niche.
If you want to get going with niche sites, but have questions, ask in the comment section. I will answer you as soon as I can. 🙂
Dating beautiful Thai women is a little bit like shooting heroin up your arm. Once you tried it, you have an high probability becoming addicted. I know that’s a pretty stupid comparison but that’s the best I could come up with, so deal with it!
I’ve dated, and I’ve had relationships with several Western woman before I discovered that there is an entire world out there with feminine, gentle and beautiful women who makes women in my home country pale in comparison.
And my country, Norway, is pretty good if you compare it with places such as England and the US. I have sincere compassion for you guys.
Yes, this post will be very generalizing. All I’m talking about in this post are similarities I see among women in Thailand and back home.
Of course you can find sweet and gentle white woman too, it’s just that you are much more likely to find a white women who have gotten fat, taken ugly tattoos, smell alcohol and cigarettes, is possessed with special snowflake syndrome or that they just act so fucking entitled you just want to run away.
In fact. I think that the blonde Scandinavian look is one of the most beautiful looks a girl can have. It’s just to bad most of them show total neglect for their appearance and conduct.
Ok. So now we have gotten that out of the way. Lets start the class my pupils.
Why are Thai women so awesome?
#1: Thai women know how to take care
I remember my second white girlfriend I had back home in the beginning of my twenties. One morning I woke up with a terrible stomach ache, body ache and mild fever. It was nothing critical or dangerous, but I had some very uncomfortable days.
What was my white girlfriends reaction? “Call me when you’re feeling better and we can be together again. I don’t want to get infected by you”… At that time I didn’t know any better so I tolerated the bad behavior, but had that happened today I would dump her immediately.
I remember I had to nag at her so she would go to the supermarked to pick up painkillers and ready-made soup. When she got back she didn’t even bother to pour hot water into the ready-made soup before she flew out of the door again. I had to get out of my comfortable warm bed, which really is a pain in the ass when you have fever, and do everything myself.
She even asked for the money back for the 3$ ready-made soup.
She was too lazy to pour hot water in my soup, but not lazy enough to ask for 3$. What the hell..
How would a Thai Women react? Well. I can tell you that right away because I’ve been in the company of a Thai woman several times when I’ve been sick.
A Thai women, the moment you tell her you’re not feeling well, will turn her attention radar 110% towards you. But most likely you don’t need to tell her, because she has already noticed that something is not right.
She will instantly ask you: “What is wrong? Is there anything I can do?” while she observe you for any anomaly.
The moment you tell her what is wrong she will already be out of the door getting medicine, healthy groceries and some snack for you.
You’ve already told her many times that you can take care of yourself, but she still insist taking care of you.
When she come back she will start cooking up a healthy soup for you that taste better than any soup you’ve ever had at any restaurant ever. After she have served the soup she’ll give you the medicine accompanied with lukewarm water and some snacks, then continue to observe you while she look for any improvements.
If you get better she will be happy for you while already planning what you will do together when you’re up and running again.
If you become worse, she will be sad while insisting you go to the doctor.
In 2013 I was on my second trip to Thailand. When I was Chiang Mai I got a terrible stomach flu so I ended up in the hospital because of severe stomach pain.
I girl that I had been talking with a few days found out that I was in the hospital. Out of nowhere she came to my hospital room with home made food and snacks. For the next three hours she just sat next to my bed holding my arm while entertaining me with her very broken but charming English accent.
That would maybe happen in the Western world if you had last stage cancer.
#2: Thai women know how to cook food
I think it’s important that women know how to cook up some basic healthy and tasty dishes from scratch. Women carry children, and she is the one who will take care of them the first years.
It’s important that your children get healthy and nutritious food in the beginning when they grow fast, so they become healthy human beings later in life. Having a strong foundation is important. Just look at obesity among kids in the Western world vs Southeast-Asia.
All Western women I’ve been with had no clue how to cook up basic dishes. They’ve all been living on ready-made food from the supermarkeds and fast food from the big chains.
Now… Just have point number 1 and 2 above in your mind, then you ask yourself; what kind of woman would you want raising your kids?
#3: Thai women know how to make men happy
A Thai monk from about a hundred and sixty years ago, Sunthorn Phu (d. 1855) have been guiding Thai women on how they should behave and act in society. His writings are still relative today.
He is one of old Siam’s most revered poets and philosophers, and his premise “Maxim for the Conduct of Ladies” has been passed on from mother to daughter and taught to girls in Thai schools since the days of Rama V (the great King of Thailand in the 19th century that brought Siam into the modern world).
All Thai women, whether they are a bar girl, a teacher, a lawyer or even the Prime Minister of Thailand continue to practice some of these maxims in their everyday life.
These maxims guide Thai women on everything from how they should move their hips, how they should swing their arms, how they should talk in public to how they should behave around men.
The result of all these maxims is that Thai women are very pleasant human beings to be around until this day.
Here are some more stuff Thai women will do that certainly will make you feel appreciated:
When you are out eating together, and your glass is empty. She will fill it up.
When your shirt is curly she will straight it out for you, and if you spill something on yourself she will do her best to remove it.
When you loose money on the floor, she will pick it up, and if your hair gets messed up by the wind, she will fix it up.
She will constantly touch you gently with her arms guiding you around so you don’t hit anything.
#4: Thai women are feminine, gentle and care about their appearance
You will never see a Thai woman out in public in a hoodie three sizes too big or worn out sweatpants. That’s something I see back home all the time. I Thai girl will always make sure her appearance is on the mark whenever she’s out in public.
Thai girls dress cute, sharp and clean.
She will usually wear simple but beautiful dresses that promotes her femininity and gentleness.
Thai women care a lot about their body too, and will never let their it go to hell with obesity, tattoos or piercings.
A well maintained female body is in fact a masterpiece just the way it is. No need to do anything with something so perfect.
#5: Thai women want children
There is something terrible wrong with the Western world when it breeds a generation of girls who don’t want children.
Ask any teenager or young women in the Western world if they want kids, and they will most likely answer no or just become very insecure, like it’s something shameful to wish.
Ask any Thai girl and you’ll get a loud and confident “of course” while she look at you like you’re crazy for even asking such a question.
#6: Thai women are easy going
But maybe the most important trait of Thai women is that they are easy going.
They will never stress, nag or dwell on anything for an eternity and she will not over analyze every little situation beyond insanity.
Any girl who is constantly stressed, nagging, or just not enjoying life can easily sap the joy out of yours too.
Not worth it!
There are several more reasons why Thai women are superior to Western women, but after reading this you should have a good idea what is waiting for you down here.
If you’ve already been in Thailand. What did you like about Thai women? Tell me in the comment section I would love to hear!
Having a Thai girlfriend is a little bit like taking heroin. Once you have tried it, it’s almost impossible to stop. There are many reasons why Thai girls are so addictive and pleasant to be around, but that is a topic for another time.
If you want to meet Thai women for free. With that I mean Thai girls who want to hang out with you without you paying for it online dating is your best bet, especially if you are coming over for a shorter vacation.
You can sign up today and within a few hours you can be chatting with several beautiful Thai ladies and even have video calls if you add them on Line or Facebook Messenger.
Another wonderful thing with Internet is that you can start to chat up girls before you come to Thailand. That way you don’t need to waste your time in paradise chasing girls indoors in malls when you could be on the beach with a beautiful girl you found online.
Thai Cupid and Thai Friendly are the biggest dating sites out there for Thailand, with around 1.000.000 members each.
In my opinion it doesn’t matter who you sign up for. They are equal good. However, I did a comparison here if you are interested.

How easy is it to hook up with a girl?
It’s so easy that if I told you, you would not believe me. My biggest culture shock when I came to Thailand the first time was just this; how easy it was to hook up with girls, make friends and hang out with people. People were genuinely interested getting to know you. Finding a Thai girlfriend is fun and easy!
Online dating in Thailand is nothing like the online dating in the Western world.
In the Western world it can take days, maybe even weeks, before you even get a girl on a date. If you sign up for Thai Cupid or Thai Friendly now, you could have a date ready tomorrow. I am not exaggerating this.
What types of girls are at online dating site?
I would say that 95% of the girls that are on Thai Cupid and Thai Friendly are regular girls that are just looking for a boyfriend or a giik (fuckfriend). Some are just looking for a friend too.
Once in a while you will get some kind of sex offer from a girl with money involved, but if you are not interested in that, just ignore it.
Other posts I’ve made about dating ‘real’ girls in Thailand
How to meet your Thai girlfriend
Are you ready to meet your dream girl? Thai girls are easy-going, feminine, love to have fun and travel around. There is a reason why almost all men who come to Thailand, will continue to travel Thailand for many years to come.
Sign up today, start to flirt with Thai girls, find your dream girlfriend and tell me about it in the comment field under!
I reader just sent me a question asking if he should stay in Chiang Mai for 5 weeks, or if he should split it up and breeze through several locations all over Thailand a week at a time. I think that was a really good question so I will give my thoughts on it!
I think that question depends on a million factors. Where are you travelling in the world? Are you traveling alone? What is your budget? What’s your purpose of travel? How long will you be abroad? What makes you happy?
Why we travel
I travel for many reasons, but my two main reasons is that my hometown sucks and that I love to meet people and experience new places, cultures, women, food and art.
The world is a big place. Why the hell would I stay inside a cubicle taking orders from a manager I hate? If you are unlucky your job has been replaced by AI robots within a few years anyways so you better start working on that alternative income!
This is 2017! It’s not that hard to make money online if you use your imagination a little bit. There is no excuse to postpone.
Every place is unique and I want to see and experience it all!
Nothing makes me more happy than to arrive on a new location that I know nothing about, ready to be explored! It’s the best feeling there is!
If you have read anything on this blog you probably already know what my answer will be regarding slow or fast travel.
I usually always travel slow. Very slow.
I’ve spent the last two years mostly in Bangkok, I’ve also spent a decent amount of time on both Koh Pha Ngan and Koh Chang. Whenever I go outside Bangkok I usually spend 3-4 weeks in each location I go. Sometimes more if it’s fun, sometimes less if it sucks.
Benefits of travelling slow
First of. What is slow? I think if you stay in each location more than 1 month you are traveling slow. That’s what it takes for me to get a good feel for a place. Yesterday I passed my first month on Koh Chang. I’m loving this island more and more for each day that passes.
Budget and saving money
Traveling slow will obviously save you a lot of money in the long run. Travelling in itself cost a lot of money. If you are travelling around in Southeast Asia all the worst people who just want as much money as possible out of you linger around bus stations and other travel hubs ready to rip you off.
The bungalow I’m renting now cost 650 baht if I would rent it day by day on Agoda. However, I called up the reception before I came here asking for a monthly rate. That rate was 6000 baht!
Just by agreeing beforehand with the landowner that I’m staying long time made my accommodation over 3 times cheaper. That’s a lot of money saved when you are constantly on the road like I am.
I also got the motorbike I’m renting for half price!
Another benefit of traveling slow is that you’ll find out where all the good, clean and cheap food is.
The first week I was here I was eating my lunch at a restaurant where it costed 150 baht for a garlic dish that I really like, then a local girl that I met some days later asked me why the hell I was eating there as the restaurant 200 m further down the road had the same dish for 50 baht!
Boooom..!! 3 times cheaper food also!
The locals will show much more interest
Usually the first thing the locals will ask you when you arrive at hotels, restaurants, bars etc is how long you stay.
If you answer “3 days” you’re just another ATM.
If you answer “minimum 4 weeks” you are a potential friend or date if you are talking with a girl.
Everyday you meet the same people the places you go and the places you eat. You start talking with the locals and before you know it you have a new friend. New relationships will evolve and at some point you will start to hang out with locals that will show you around.
Moving around is exhausting
I hate to move around from city to city. It’s boring, tiresome, your ass hurts from sitting too much and people try to rip you of at every opportunity at the travel hubs.
Airplanes are delayed, buses are delayed, taxis get stuck in traffic and tuktuks just suck!
Usually if I have been moving around all day I have no energy when the night comes to do anything. So that makes me want to move around as little as possible.
If you’re moving around every third day it’s obvious that dating will not work. You can of course stay clear of normal girls and only go with P4P girls, but that gets very shallow and boring in the long run.
Real relationships with girls that want to fuck you is much more fun imo.
You can only get that if you travel slow and stay at one location over a longer period of time. The sex is also better with regular girls as you learn from each other what you like in bed.
You can also take her for a HIV test so you can drop that awful condom!
Benefits of travelling fast
If I had traveled like most tourist I meet. I would have been in every damn city of Southeast-Asia by now. However this would be very expensive and unsatisfying for me.
I would only see the stuff that I have already seen in the travel magazines and the big mainstream travel sites like TripAdvisor. There would be zero surprises!
I would only have time to say hello to people before I had to say goodbye again.
I mean… Getting to know the locals is the best thing you can do to get real and everlasting memories.
So, when should you travel fast?
I think if you’re on a big budget or you only have 2 or 3 weeks abroad anyways. You can just as well check out more places as you wont get a feel for one place in 3 weeks anyways.
Except for that I can’t really find any great benefits on traveling fast. It’s expensive and shallow. Sure, it’s cool to see the Eiffel Tower in Paris on a weekend trip, but that will probably not be an everlasting memory that stays with you until you die.
The best memories I have is when I was with real people that I met on the road doing unique and spontaneous things.
So my advice to anyone who wants unique experiences while traveling abroad is; travel slow, dig in and enjoy every second of it! No need to hurry!
I’ve been to all the biggest islands in Thailand and also some small ones that no one have heard of like Koh Yao Noi, Koh Yao Yai and Koh Wai.
Let me tell you. If you want island life; relaxing, clean nature, chill vibe, beaches, a tropical theme and decent nightlife with occasionally peaks; go to Koh Chang!
Below I will present to you my favorite things to do on Koh Chang (Chang means elephant in Thai and Koh means island)
Note that the majority of people (both Thai and foreigners) stay on the West side of the island. There is not really much going on at the East side. Just a handful of resorts, a shooting range, some small villages and some desolate beaches. I do recommend taking the trip over to the East side, but I would never stay in the resorts there as I would be bored to death.
Exploring the island by motorcycle
Scooters, motorbikes, off-road bikes, Harley’s and heavier bikes. You can rent everything on Koh Chang. However most people are happy with a 125cc motorbike or scooter.
You can rent a 125 motorbike all over the island for 150 – 250 baht depending on where you are (cheaper the more South you go).
Driving a motorbike on Koh Chang is fun. You have a ton of hills, sharp curves and long stretches you can go cruisin’. Most of the hills and curves are on the West side while the long stretches are on the East side.
There are many waterfalls, rivers, viewpoints and small villages all over the island ready to be explored. The cheapest and most convenient way to explore all this is by motorcycle. Renting a taxi for a day, or per trip, would cost much much more than 250 baht per day.
There are also several dirt roads that goes deep inside the jungle of Koh Chang. However I don’t recommend messing around on those roads without a local guide as there are many hazards. Steep hills, broken roads, snakes, spiders, wild animals and cliffs.
Bang Bao Pier
Bang Bai Pier is in the town all the way south on the west side of the island. Bang Bao Pier is a very long pier where you’ll find a lot of shops that sells everything from souvenirs to diving equipment. There are also several seafood restaurants here.
If you want to go to Koh Wai, Koh Kut or Koh Mak there are boats leaving everyday from Bang Bao Pier.
This pier also seems to be a hot spot for snorkeling and diving as there are many boats that leave the pier daily for such sports.
Koh Chang beaches
Koh Chang is a tropical island with a lot of beautiful beaches, so it would be strange to leave out the beaches in this highlight. I’ve already made a guide for Koh Chang beaches so you can check that out here.
Swimming in rivers
The seawater around Koh Chang is very hot as most beaches are shallow. If you really want to cool down while talking a swim there are several rivers all around the island that you can jump out in. These rivers are fresh rain water so this water is very clean and clear.
Several rivers have big swings you can throw yourself out from before you jump in the water.
The coolest river I found was in Bang Bao. This place seems to be a popular place for the locals to go to on cool days. There will also be small temporary restaurants there that sells Thai food and grill food.
Another great river is under the Khlong Phlu Waterfall, but this waterfall is a part of the national park so you have to pay 200 baht to get inside.
On the east side you also have several rivers that runs out under the main road. Just notice whenever you drive over a bridge, then take a look. Sometimes there will be people swimming there already.
I’ve never seen so much fruit as I have on Koh Chang. Not only is the amount impressive, but the selection is impressive too. Many of the fruits here I’ve never seen in Europe.
Durian seems to be a favorite among the Thai people here. They eat it eat all over the place. If you go on the East side of the island and drive up in the hills you’ll see Durian farms all over the place.
The Thai people call this fruit “the King of fruits”. It’s pretty delicious and the taste can remind a little bit about orange.
The fruit on Koh Chang is delicious, cheap and fresh!
There are several other things to do on Koh Chang except relaxing and enjoying life. Including many sport activities all around the island.
You can rent kayaks, paddle board and snorkel equipment on pretty much all beaches. Go jungle trekking or drive ATV’s off road. If you want longer trips with guides you can talk with any of the islands countless travel agencies. They usually fix transport from your hotel so you don’t need to think about that either.
In Bang Bao there are several scuba diver centers with daily trips to different locations outside Koh Chang. You can also take the boat here further to islands like Koh Wai, Koh Mak or Koh Kut. I haven’t been to these islands yet so I can’t say much about them.
Koh Chang is an amazing island with everything you would expect from a tropical island. I love Koh Chang!
Koh Chang is a tropical island with 25 celsius or more all year around. With that type of climate, and several good beaches all around the island, it’s obvious that you’ll spend a lot of time here on the beach!
Koh Chang have many good beaches, but in this post I’ll tell you about my four favorite beaches.
Klong Kloey Beach
Klong Kloey beach is my favorite beach on Koh Chang. It’s all the way down south near Bang Bao Pier. The beach is separated from the main road so you will not be bothered with traffic noise in the background.
The beach has thick soft sand and the beach is shallow very far out. Along the beach you’ll find several small restaurants that sell food, drink and alcohol.
You can rent kayak in most shops for 100 baht per hour.
2 km further up the road from Klong Kloey beach you’ll find a river that is very popular to swim in for the locals. There water here is very fresh and a little bit colder than in the sea.
White Sand Beach
White Sand Beach is not the whitest beach on the island, but it is defiantly the longest. The beach is also along the town Hat Sai Khao which is the most developed town in Koh Chang.
You’ll find everything in this area to have a happy Thailand holiday. In daytime you can relax on the beach all day and jump out in the water whenever you feel to cool down.
When sunset is near small restaurants starts to pop up all over the beach where you can eat and enjoy the sunset. When it’s dark the same restaurants have live music, fire shows and other entertainment.
Later at night you can go over to the bar complex in Hat Sai Khao, the biggest bar complex on Koh Chang with over 30 bars filled with bar girls and ladyboys or take the trip town to Lonely Beach to party all night in one of the rather simple nightclubs. Check the nightlife guide for Koh Chang for more detailed information about that.
Lonely Beach is the beach where all the backpackers gather. The beach itself is very nice and it’s probably the whitest beach on Koh Chang.
In the area around the beach you’ll find a lot of cheap bungalows and rooms for rent. In the town of Lonely Beach there are many pubs and nightclubs that hold open until the morning.
Unfortantly I’ve lost my pictures from this beach so I’ll have to send you to a Google Image Search.
If you want to really isolate yourself you should take the trip to Long Beach all the way south on the East side. It’s a good hour drive from White San Beach and probably two hours if you are near Lonely Beach or Kai Bae.
However, the beach is white as paper, untouched and really beautiful. There is no developments here except a small restaurant on the beach’s end, so here you can really enjoy your day in peace.
Unfortunately I have lost my pictures from this beach too so I’ll have to send you to a Google Image Search.
There are also several hidden beaches around the island. Pull up Google Maps to see if you can spot them. Some of the beaches have small dirt roads so you can drive your motorbike to them, but this is not for beginners and you should be two people in case you puncture. Sucks to walk home!
There are also one more good beach, Lisca Beach, but this beach is private and you have to buy something from the restaurant there to stay there. Some parts of the beach is also unavailable for the public as there is a bunch of tents there.
Koh Chang is my favorite island in Thailand. In my opinion there is no island above or beside.
The island is not too developed like lets say Koh Samoi where you don’t really feel like you’re on an island anymore because of all the tall buildings and developments, but you’re not out in the middle of the jungle either.
Koh Chang is perfectly balanced between preserving the beautiful wilderness but still have some of the craziness and debauchery that we all love. 😀
I think my tourist guide map says it the best: “The island of Koh Chang is a tropical marine national park. It’s hinterland consist of over 70% virgin rain forest and is the best preserved holiday destination in Thailand.” 😀
I don’t know about you guys, but when I go to an island I want to relax. I want to feel the nature. I want to be by myself, maybe together with a cute girl I found in a bar the night before. If I want to party hard I can go to Pattaya or Bangkok.
At Koh Chang you can relax on the beach. No beach sellers will harass you, you will hear the waves and not the traffic in the background from the beach promenade and you can hear the wind in the palm trees behind you while you sip coconut juice. That’s what island life is about! 😀
If you want to stay in big fancy 5 star resorts you can do that up north along White Sand Beach, if you want to have a beach for yourself stay all the way south near Bang Bao that have easy access to Klong Koi beach.
If you want to be totally isolated you can go to Long Beach.
When that is said. Koh Chang do not lack nightlife in any matters. Yes it’s not like Bangkok or Pattaya in intensity but you can for sure have your fun here.
Nightlife in Koh Chang
All of Koh Chang’s nightlife is happening on the West coast along Rural Rd all the way from White Sand Beach in north until Bang Bao in south. The nightlife varies from beer bars, regular bars, nightclubs, karaoke bars, small hippy huts and nice restaurants on the beach with live music, flame shows and games.
Is there one thing Koh Chang doesn’t lack, its beer bars with working girls. In fact, that’s what this island is all about if you ask me. You will find beer bars along Rural Rd from the town along White Sand Beach and all the way down to Bang Bao. That road is no less than 15 km and you will find small beer bars all over the place.
It’s almost no point making a beer bar guide for Koh Chang as they are literally everywhere and pretty much all the same. However, there are some beer gardens with bigger gatherings that I will tell about here and you also have a small walking street on the island with 20-30 beer bars.
Most bars are open until 2 am, but the bars will gladly hold open longer if there’s money to be made. It’s not like in Chiang Mai where the police will come and force close everything if it’s not closed by 1 am.
White Sand Beer Garden
I don’t know if this place have an official name, but the beer garden is located in the town along White Sand Beach.
This is the biggest gathering of beer bars on Koh Chang with around 40 ber bars in a cluster.
This place is the most high energy area on the island. It’s loud music and high energy all night.
If you are looking for something more relaxing where you can sit down and talk with the girls you should probably go further south on the island.
Chai Chet Beer bar strip
In Chai Chet (roughly 2km south of White Sand) there is a long strip along Rural Rd with 30 – 40 bars.
This place is much more relaxed than White Sand Beer Garden. I rarely hear loud music here and you can talk with inside voice in most of the bars.
Walking Street Koh Chang
In the small town along Kai Bae Beach you’ll find Walking Street.
It’s a parallel street of Rural Rd where you’ll find 30-40 beer bars. It’s a big black sign pointing to the street so it’s hard to miss.
There is also a bar here that pretty much worked as an outdoor nightclub. Every night I was there it was full, loud music and people was dancing on the outside dance floor. 😀
The beer bars here are relaxed and laid back. There is a big probability that you’ll get a bar for yourself here with 2-5 working girls for yourself eager to go with you.
There are also a lot of solo bars spread all over Rural Rd on the West side that I won’t mention in this guide as they’re all the same, and I think it’s totally random who is good. You just have to drive around until you find a place that you want to spend your night in. If the name is Boom Boom Bar or Yes bar doesn’t really matter.
The southern most beer bar I found was in the town along Lonely Beach, Kamrai Bar, but this bar seems to be only ladyboys.
Khamer girls on Koh Chang
Just as you’ll find a lot of cute Lao girls in Nong Khai and Udon Thani, cities that are close to the Lao border. You’ll find a lot of cute Khamer girls on Koh Chang as it’s very close to the Cambodian border.
I met a lot of cute Khamer girls here, and I traveled around with a 21-year-old cutie on Koh Chang for three days with my motorbike and as the night came we banged all night in my 1000 baht bungalow on Klong Kloi beach.
Good times! 😀
Khamer girls are really interesting girls as most of them speak very good English and it’s possible to actually have an intelligent conversation with most of them. I’m impressed by Khamer girls. Many of them speak 4 languages (Khamer, Thai, English and Vietnamese).
I think finding a Khamer girl once in a while is a nice break from the average Thai girl who speak very little English, only eat Thai food and think Thailand is number 1 in everything.
Normal bars and nightclubs on Koh Chang
There are several good bars spread all over the island. Here are some of the bars that I liked the most.
Filou Cocktail Lounge
This is probably the bar with the coolest interior I have ever seen anywhere. Very nice atmosphere and great live band. A little bit expensive for Koh Chang, but it’s easy to see where your money was spent.
I guess you get what you pay for.
There are also a ton of bars all around the island that I see no point mentioning as they are pretty much the same. Along most beaches at Koh Chang you have many hidden bars along the beach with chill live music, food and cocktails. Take your pick.
Himmel and TingTong Bar
These bars are as close as you get to nightclubs on this island. They are by no means Bangkok or Phuket standard, and you will be siting on dirty chairs while sipping your 80 baht Sangsom cocktail. This is not a place to meet up in suit lol (yeah one guy did just that 1 hour before I’m writing this).
People here are a good mix between backpackers, mongers, regular girls, both Thai and foreign and freelancers looking for customers.
Himmel and TingTong bar are just a stone’s throw away from each other. If one sucks, just check out the other one. 🙂
Ladyboys on Koh Chang
Ladyboys are working in the same bars as the girls. No need to go to a special place on Koh Chang to find them. I’m not into ladyboys personally, but I have to admit there was some pretty hot ones in the beer garden at White Sand Beach.
Koh Chang have a small strip of karaoke bars along Rural Rd near Chai Chet beach. Check map under to see where to find them.
Soapy Massage on Koh Chang
There are no soapy massage on Koh Chang yet.
Sky bars on Koh Chang
Koh Chang have only one sky bar. Calling it a sky bar is probably a little bit pretentious as it’s only five floors up but hey this is Koh Chang so I’ll let that slip. The skybar is on the top of The Gallery Hotel, check the map.
The place is top-notch modern and has a pretty good view out towards the ocean. Absolutely enjoyed this avenue.
There is another place a little bit longer south called Lighthouse Cuisine, it’s a restaurant but they have very good view towards the sea and you can get the sunset there while you enjoy your food and drink.
Big parties at Lonely Beach
In high season (December until February) there are several big parties on Lonely Beach. You have the New Year’s Eve party 31st of December every year, then you have Winter Sensation every February that is sponsored by Bacardi + smaller beach parties that is going on every Saturday most of the year.
They are really good at putting up posters all over the island so you wont miss it if something is going on at Lonely Beach.
Where to buy marijuana on Koh Chang
Marijuana is sold in TingTong Bar at Lonely Beach quite openly. Just ask the people that hang out in the street outside TingTong Bar about marijuana and they will sell it to you.
They also sell ready-made joints that you can smoke inside TingTong Bar in the chillout area.
1 joint = 200 baht
3 gram brown weed: 300 baht
The weed here was not that good to be honest. One night I smoked 2 joints in the TingTong Bar with a Thai girl. I got medium high. The weed here was not like the sativa weed in Vang Vieng that would send you on a journey to the moon.
I only found indica weed on Koh Chang and it just made me really sleepy honestly.
But if you like indica you will have no problem with that. It’s probably possible to get sativa weed somewhere on the island too.
Some people like to take their vacation as it comes with no planning what so ever. I’m one of them as I’ve always said: “The best plan is no plan”.
However some people are on the other side of that coin and like to have everything down on paper. They want to know everything from they arrive to they leave!
If you only have two weeks in paradise and worked hard for your vacation, I totally get it that you want to exploit every second of that trip. Nothing wrong with that.
As my website have grown bigger my inbox have also grown bigger.
Not a single day goes by without getting mail. Some of the mail have 5 to 15 questions in them. It’s been so much lately that I’ve had trouble answering everything.
So here is my deal. I will keep answering questions, but I will charge a small amount for it. That way I will hopefully get a little bit less questions, and I will be able to answer people faster and more professional.
I will give you a guarantee that I will answer within 48 hours. If I don’t I’ll send the money back and answer the questions for free.
I’ll also offer follow up mail if you’re not happy with my original answers or you just need more information – no extra payment of course. 🙂
Here’s how it’ll work from now on
1 question = 3 dollars
You send me a mail to email@example.com with your questions. You can also use the contact form as it will send directly to my email. Remember to get your email correct in contact form or I won’t be able to answer you.
Then you use that same email to pay in Paypal – firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have 5 questions, you multiply 3 dollar with 5 questions etc etc. Remember to mark the PayPal payment with the email you sent the questions from or I wont be able to know if you paid or not.

Elaborations on already existing topics on my website
Nong Khai is a small border city north in Isaan along the Mekong River. Any person who have been on a VISA run to Laos have went thought this place, maybe even stayed here one night before entering Laos.
However, most people prefer to take a night in Udon Thani, just one hour away from the border, as the nightlife and energy is much higher.
Nightlife in Nong Khai
I stayed at this hotel, Nong Khai City Hotel. Superb standard, guest friendly and just next to the fun beer bars. The WIFI was super fast and the bed super comfy. For only 400 baht per night that is a great deal!
Beer bars with working girls
Nong Khai had a small beer bar scene with working girls, but it was nothing like in Udon Thani. There was also a lot of expats here, mostly old guys sitting in the bars.
A couple of the bars almost worked as daycare centers for the old expats living here. The same guys sat in the bars all fucking day. Unbelievable.
The beer bars was located at two different places in town. Walking between them took roughly 10 minutes.
The bars opened early daytime, and was open until late. Some bars was still going strong at 3 am.
I spent Songkran 2017 in Udon Thani. My plan was to get to Koh Chang, but I got delayed from Laos as I had a blast in Vang Vieng. When I got back to Thailand Songkran had already started.
As you might know, traveling anywhere in the Songkran week is next to impossible. People will throw water on you no matter where you are, and as I was traveling with my expensive camera gear and laptop. Going outside with that in my backpack would not be smart.
When Songkran was over I had another problem. All sleeper trains to Bangkok was full and airplanes was very expensive and/or full too. I ended up taking a third class train from city to city all the way to Bangkok, spending a couple of nights in each city.
Of the cities I visited in Isaan. Udon Thani had the biggest expat community in this region. More than 6000 expats are living in and around Udon Thani all year around, and it shows:
Everywhere you go there will be foreigners walking around with their Isaan wifes. Not only old guys, but also younger men that have relocated to Thailand for different reasons.
Also, if you take a good look at the children around in this city you’ll notice that a lot of them are mixed children. I wonder how many of these kids are from Thai / Farang marriages, and how many are mishaps from customers while the girl worked in a bar in Pattaya or Phuket. What do you think?
Udon Thani surprised me. The city was exceptionally clean, the people here were genuinely friendly and I liked how everything was close to the train station and Central Plaza.
I stayed at this hotel, Silver Reef. It’s in walking distance to the train station, bus station, farang bars, the biggest shopping mall and the most popular nightclub in Udon Thani for the locals, Tawan Deang.
The hotel had great standard, was guest friendly, had a big king-sized bed and the WIFI was very fast. All that for under 400 baht on that location is a good deal if you ask me.
Nightlife in Udon Thani
Udon Thani has the biggest and best nightlife in the Isaan region of Thailand. It has a huge expat / farang bar scene, a ton of local nightclubs and bars, massage parlors, soapy massage avenues and karaoke bars.
I also found the Udon girls extremely beautiful and attractive, and I got attention from a ton of girls here.
The girls felt much more alive, genuine and happy than lets say Bangkok girls, where the heat, pollution and stressfull traffic jams takes a toll on the local people.
Udon girls also had much more curves and had that delicious caramel tan, contrary to the white skinned girls in Bangkok who usually are much more fragile and jolly.
In Udon, especially around Central plaza, there was a ton of hot girls just hanging out ready to be approached.
Farang bars with working girls
Udon Thani has two huge bar complexes with beer bars and working girls. With 6000 expats living in the city that might not come as a surprise. The energy here is much more relaxed than in Bangkok, Phuket or Pattaya. The girls here will be much more chill, and will rarely nag about lady drinks.
Day & night
Day and night is the biggest beer bar complex in Udon. It’s a big building with 20-30 bars tightly packed together.
Each bar had anything from 5 to 10 working girls in all ages and shapes. But most girls was in the late twenties or early thirties.
The place opens at sunset, and keep open until after midnight. At around 1 am the bars start to lower the music and drop the blinds with customers still inside.
Tawan Deang Pub was defiantly the most popular nightclub in the town. It’s a typical Thai avenue that you can find in several cities in Thailand.
The avenue has a huge stage with live entertainment all night. Live bands, dancers and coyote girls.
They play anything from Western hit music to popular Thai music. In the guest area there are tables where people can eat and drink while enjoying the social and the entertainment.
I usually buy a bottle of whisky when I go to places like these. Whisky, coke and ice cubes. If I ordner some food and snacks to the bill usually ends at around 1000 baht for a full night. Good deal if you ask me.
There are other popular nightclubs in Udon Thani also. I visited a place that was called Yellow Bird. My phone was out of power, so I could not get any pictures there. I have included location in the map + two other popular nightclubs that I have not visited yet. Sister bars and Phoenix.
Freelancers in Udon Thani
There are a handful of freelancers walking around close to the intersection between Soi Samphan Thamit and Prajak Sillapakom Rd. Check map for location. There are also some ladyboys hanging out here.
Going rate is as low as 500 baht!
Ladyboys in Udon Thani
If you are looking for ladyboys you are in the right city! Another cool thing is that they hang out on the same places as the regular bar girls. So if you go to the popular farang places like Day & Night you will find plenty of ladyboys.
I have been to this city many times when I pick up a new VISA at the Thai Embassy, but this time I decided to stay a few days to check out what this city has to offer.
I have to be honest. The nightlife in Vientiane was boring and lame.
I was not impressed considering that this is a capital and it didn’t feel like a capital or big city at all, but more like a big village.
The city center is very well groomed and decorated, but as soon as you get a couple of miles outside it’s dusty, most roads are gravel and you realize that this is a very poor third world country.
However, the city had some nightlife highlights, and in this short post I will tell you about them.
Nightlife in Vientiane
Nightlife in Vientiane consist mainly of laid back pubs / bars and a few restaurants here and there. There are a few nightclubs in town but it’s nothing like you will find in neighboring capital of Thailand, Bangkok.
At midnight pretty much everything is closed and the entire city reminds me more of a ghost town rather than a capital. Yes, it’s that dull! After midnight nothing was going on anywhere!
Popular bars in Vientiane
The most popular bars in Vientiane you will find on the Mekong promenade and around the “Nam Phou” fountain in the middle of the city. Everything is in walking distance so it doesn’t matter where you go. If one place sucks you can walk to the next place.
Bor Pen Nyang Bar
This bar was probably the most popular bar in Vientiane for foreigners. It was in third floor in one of the buildings with good view over the Mekong River. The bar has very good seating with excellent view towards the Mekong River.
I sat here all Saturday evening watching the sunset, eating Thai food and drinking delicious Beer Lao. The place started to get full at around 8pm and stayed like that until midnight when it closed. The avenue has very nice decoration and they also had a pool table.
I liked this place a lot!
Khop Chai Deu Restaurant
I was here on Friday night. The place was pretty full with a mix of locals, Thai people, backpackers and older guys living in Thailand just waiting for a Thai VISA.
The place was primarily a restaurant, but also worked as a pub. They sold every kind of food you can imagine, also Western food.
No live music.
A also read may places on the web that if you wanted to pick up a temporary girlfriend for the night, you would find freelancers here.
I did not see any.
3 Yaek Parkpasuk Restaurant
Not sure if this is the correct name as the sign outside was in Lao, but this name was in Google Map, so I assume it’s correct.
This place was very popular among local people as it was completely full both nights I was here.
It’s a mix between restaurant and bar. Most people here eat food while they drink and socialize.
The avenue also had live music that played local music, Thai music and Western hits.
Mekong River Promenade
A lot of things are happening along the Mekong promenade every night.
Mekong River night marked
Every night at around 7 pm a night marked opens in the Chao Anouvong Park along the Mekong Promenade.
Goods are clothes, food, drinks, juice, toys and other cheap stuff from China.
There is also a big open area where people exercise everyday at sunset. A lot of local girls hang out in this area every evening enjoying the sunset while reading books or playing with their phone.
Mekong River restaurants and bars
It’s hard to explain exactly where this was. But it’s pinned down on the map at the bottom of this post.
When you are at the night marked, just follow the Mekong promenade about 1 km west. Then 15 – 20 restaurants and bars with live music will suddenly appear.
I did eat a lot here and the food was awesome. I also had my first slurp of Beer Lao, a beer that was surprisingly delicious.
Hookers in Vientiane
Bars girls in Vientiane You will not find beer bars with working girls in Vientiane like you do all over Thailand. There are local brothels at the outskirts of the city but I would be very careful as it’s illegal to bang Lao girls in Laos.
If you really want to visit a brothel just talk with a tuktuk driver. They know where they are. I did not visit these places, but many tuktuk drivers offered me ‘happy times’.
Freelancers in Vientiane Freelancers however you will find in downtown Vientiane. Some of them are hanging out in the bars while waiting for customers while others are roaming the streets. I did see a couple of freelancers in the bar Bor Pen Nyang along the Mekong river.
They were wearing skirts that left little to the imagination. No regular Lao girl would ever wear a dress like that.
I also saw a couple of freelancers along Rue Samsenthai Rd near the “Nam Phou” fountain. Check map for location.
Ladyboys in Vientiane I stumbled across a handful of ladyboys in the same street as the female freelancers. Rue Samenthai Rd to be exact. I did talk with one of them and they were Thai, not Lao.
Can it be better..? No. It can’t quite honestly. Describing how Thailand feels like for the first time is next to impossible. You have to experience it.
For me it was so good that I had no other choice but to move here, and in 2015 I did! I had the best time of my life, and I still have today!
But something happened over time…
Time passed by and the novelty of staying in Thailand started to brush off. That intense vibe of being in Thailand disappeared, it was no longer the adventure it once was. I started to feel home.
Then more time passed by and I started to get pissed of by things I earlier never realized was a problem. I noticed things that I could never notice on a regular vacation.
The facade started to burst.
Here are a few things that could be deal breakers for me if I knew about it before I moved to Thailand in 2015. Maybe it can help you making better decision..?
1: VISA runs
If you’re over 50 years old, and have access to the Retirement VISA you can ignore this point.
For all us other people that stay in Thailand without having a ‘real job’, whatever that means, will get fed up with the VISA situation. It was fun in the beginning as a good excuse to see other countries, but now after two years it’s just a pain in the ass to be honest.
Every three months I have to fly out of Thailand, find a Thai embassy, waste an entire day convincing the bureaucrats that I have my own business online, and that I don’t work illegally in Thailand.
Besides, why would anyone from the Western world work illegally in Thailand? The pay is shit and you have no free time. No thanks!
I have to bring updated bank statements, statements from customers, fill out a ton of stupid forms and sit at some pub for one night waiting for the visa to be ready the next day.
Why do they make so much trouble for us? It’s not like I’m here to steal social benefits from the government or to start riots in the street. I only want to mind my own business.
I make my own money from outside Thailand, and I spend them inside Thailand. I make Thailand richer. They should give me free VISA and a cake.
On my last two VISA runs I have been thinking more and more about leaving Thailand. In the Philippines I’ve heard it’s super easy to get VISA’s and you don’t need to leave the country when you want to extend, and people there are much better in English too.
In Cambodia you can just buy a one year multi-entry business VISA, no questions asked, and you can stay for one year. However, Cambodia is too rural for me so I could never live there long term.
Maybe it’s time to find new pastures..?
2: Friends, expats and locals
Most expats in Thailand are total shit heads. Old bitter cunts that sit in the bar from morning to night. They have no hobbies or goals in life as they are lazy fuckheads that live off minimum pension from their home country. Go inside any forum about Thailand and you understand what I mean. Some of these guys have been here for over 10 years and they don’t know one fucking word of Thai except “Sa wat dee Krap”.
I’ve heard that you become the average of the 5 best friends you have. I don’t want to become like those lazy cuntz so I will stay far away thank you. I don’t want anything to do with them.
Finding good expat friends in Thailand is very hard in my opinion. I have three expat friends that I consider friends, one of them I consider a good friend that I would trust with all my money. That took me almost two years to build up. Thailand attracts so many weird guys with all kinds of baggage, so I’m very careful with who I trust and tell shit to.
There are many old vicious fat expats out there who can’t stand that a young handsome guy like me make all my money online making me free as a bird, while they had to work all their life in a boring factory job just to collect a small pension in their old days.
Tell the wrong bitter guy about your business, and you end up having stalker that will do whatever he can to ruin your life.
If people ask me what I do I usually just say I’m here on a three week vacation.
Finding good local Thai friends can also be hard in my opinion. Thailand is a Buddhist country in Southeast-Asia, not a Christian country in the Western World. Their reasoning, values and thinking are very different from the Western world.
If you want to get involved with local people, build up a network and get friends, you HAVE to learn the Thai language. Go out to eat with a group of Thai people and they will ONLY talk Thai, even they KNOW you are there and all of them have GOOD English skills.
3: Bullshit, drama and jealousy
Local people are a chapter for themselves. And as you probably already know, Thai people are very friendly, they always smile and they rarely make any trouble.
That is until you break trough the facade and realize that all this politeness and smiling is just that, mostly a facade.
The truth is, Thai people are some of the biggest drama queens on the planet. They constantly make drama, backstab each-other, are jealous and put out false rumors. All the social circles I’ve been in down here have been just like that more or less.
“We can’t go there today because right now person X has a problem with person Y, and person Y is there today..” bla bla..
It’s an endless loop of drama and backtalk. And no one ever confronts anyone about anything because then they ‘loose face’. It’s just an endless circle of backtalk and drama that’s going on in the background, but when everyone meet each other nothing is wrong and everyone is smiling. It’s really bizarre to witness.
“He said that, so that means she will do like that, so that means you said X but really means Y…” you get the deal here..
This is not really that big of a problem, it’s just tiresome if someone drag you into it. You get endless messages in Facebook and Line about stupid shit you don’t want to spend time on. You get invited into stupid group-chats where people talk about how to solve the stupid drama, where everyone talk in Thai anyways so you don’t understand 80% of it because all of them write so fucking fast.
Normally most drama is forgotten and forgiven after a couple of days / weeks.
The best you can do is to just ignore it, and try to not get involved. To be honest, when Thai people start their drama, all I hear is this:
4: Constantly getting ripped off
You’ve been a good boy and learned the Thai language so you can learn more about this amazing country and culture?
Well, congratulation. Now you realize just how much you’re getting ripped of on a daily basis all year long all over Thailand.
As soon as I go outside my regular path (where the locals know me), I get constantly ripped off. It happens ALL THE FUCKIN TIME.
Let’s say I order a Goay Tiaw (noodles) from a street vendor somewhere I’ve never been. I see the price (in Thai) that it costs 40 baht. When I’m done eating and I want to pay the dude quickly says “60 baht”…
I’m thinking ‘he’s probably just an asshole’. Then right after his six year old daughter runs over to him giving him a hug making him smile big. Ohh… So he’s not an asshole, but he still ripped me off. Nice!
On my last VISA run to Laos I took the third class train back down to Bangkok because I wanted to go from city to city.
There are people on the train that sell food, water, soda etc.
Suddenly I hear a lady yell ‘mee naam yen yen sib baht naa kaa’.
This basically means ‘I have water only 10 baht”. The train is a hot place so I run over to the lady telling her I want a bottle of water.
’30 baht’ she answers. She say this without flinching, and the people around me just look another direction or smile. What they don’t know is that I understand everything of what’s going on here.
Both of these rips-offs are just 20 baht (0.5$). Why do you care Tim? It’s almost no money.
That’s true. It’s not much, but it does add up when it happens several times daily all year.
By the way. I don’t really blame the Thai people. They work very hard and long days. Many border to poverty. They probably think I’m just a regular tourist on a big tourist budget. I get it..
But sill… Taxi drivers, motorbike taxis, street vendors, train staff, hookers, bars girls, restaurants… ++
It adds up, it fucking irritates me and it make me feel I’m not welcome in Thailand.
5: You loose touch with reality..
Read my intro again for this post.
“Coming to Thailand for the first time is a powerful experience that few men ever forgets. Especially if you’re a white dude with a middle-class tourist budget.”
The reason coming to Thailand for the first time is a powerful experience don’t change, it just becomes your new normal. You get used to girls jumping on your dick from every direction, you get used to getting treated like a little king and you get used to hot girls doing your laundry without asking for it.
Choosing a girl from the gogo-stage becomes just as normal as going to 7/11 picking out what potato chips you want..
And I don’t think that is a good thing.
Last week I met a young guy in his early twenties in Bangkok. He owned real estate and he used the profit from that to live in Thailand. This guy was on a pretty hardcore “I’m the shit” trip.
This dude would be a total loser in the Western world in every aspect, but because how he gets treated down here by whores he reallybelieved he was a cool guy.
He looked like a homeless dude, he smelled like shit, he was cringe af, no humor and he had strange ticks in his face, but still he talked about himself like he was a fucking God and had amazing game with regular girls and hookers.
People like that will have a brutal wake up call one day and half of them end up jumping from Mike’s shopping mall in Pattaya.
I hope I’m pretty good at keeping a grip on the reality. I know I’m no casanova or special, I’m just a white dude in Asia. I do realize that this lifestyle is a “fake lifestyle” in many aspects, and I’m also prepared that something might happen one day that forces me to move back home living a much more reclined lifestyle.
However, many people that move to Thailand, or that stay her for longer periods lose grip on reality, and start to have bigger thoughts about themselves than what is healthy. They never land back on the ground, not even when they get back home.
That’s not good.
The pollution in Southeast-Asia is absolutely horrendous. Three months after I moved to Bangkok, my nose started clog up and itch, and it’s still like that to this day. Sometimes when I clean my nose the mucus that comes out is not yellow / green, but light/dark gray. It’s disgusting.
In Northern Europe we have strict rules about emission. A bad day in my hometown is a good day here in Bangkok.
And Bangkok is not even that bad. Vang Vieng, Siam Reap and many other cities around Southeast-Asia is much much worse.
Exhaust, hover dust from the roads, cooking fumes, cigarettes, smoke combined with sky high humidity levels. It’s no joke.
When I was driving my motorbike around in Vang Vieng I had trouble keeping my eyes up because of all the dust in the air. I actually bought a medical mask that day because I was afraid I would get some type of breathing attack while driving. The same is true for Siam Reap in Cambodia.
Just let me tell you. Breathing is something you take for granted until you can’t fucking breath because you cough up black mucus lumps while you having a itching attack.
People might laugh at me for wearing a medical mask, some even say to me I’m ‘wannabe’ local what ever that means lol.
Lets see who laughs in 30 years when I’m out running in the park while you are connected to a breathing apparatus.
Living in Asia is not perfect. However, the positive aspects of this lifestyle beats the negative aspects in my opinion. Down here I can be 100% location independent. I don’t have to meet up at some boring job everyday. That’s a freedom I’m willing to sacrifice a lot for.
I can live with occasional VISA runs and some rip-offs here and there for that type of freedom.
Lao girls has to be the most stunning girls in Southeast-Asia in my opinion. They carry themselves with such style and elegance that I took myself in staring at groups of Lao women that walked past me.
The Lao language is very similar to how they talk in northeast of Thailand (Isaan). I’ve also read that the girls in Laos look very similar to the girls in Isaan. But, I have to disagree. I think they looked much more Chinese than they looked Thai or Isaan. They were taller, slimmer, had big lips and very white skin.
I spoke with several Lao girls while I was in Laos, and they are much more shy than Thai girls. Most are very conservative and many wear the traditional dress called ‘the sinh’. I love these traditional dresses. They are not supposed to be sexy, and they certainly don’t show much skin or curves. But I still find them sexy in a strange way. 😀
Here are some ideas on how you can meet and date Lao girl inside and outside of Laos.
1: Meet them in Laos
Duuh. No shit Tim. Why are you telling me this?
Here’s the deal. Going to Laos to meet Lao girls might not be as fun as you think. Most of them are very conservative and you’ll probably have a hard time hooking up. If you are coming from Thailand, where just being white is enough for endless amount of pussy, you’re going to loose your motivation fast in Laos.
Here is another problem with dating Lao girls in Laos.
IT’S ILLEGAL TO HAVE SEX WITH THEM UNLESS YOU MARRY THEM.
Yes, you heard that right. Banging a Lao woman can get you in serious trouble with the law. Tourists have paid up to 5000$ in fines while the girl you banged risk ending up in prison without trial for a long time.
Just read this quote:
Relationship with Lao citizens: Lao law prohibits sexual contact between foreign citizens and Lao nationals except when the two parties have been married in accordance with Lao Family Law. Any foreigner who enters into a sexual relationship with a Lao national risks being interrogated, detained, arrested, or fined. Lao police have confiscated passports and imposed fines of up to $5,000 on foreigners who enter into unapproved sexual relationships. The Lao party to the relationship may be jailed without trial. Foreigners are not permitted to invite Lao nationals of the opposite sex to their hotel rooms; police may raid hotel rooms without notice or consent.
Fucked up? Yes!
When I traveled between Vientiane, Vang Vieng and Luang Prabang I saw several police check points where police checked people’s documents. At one point my bus was also stopped and two police officers came inside the bus to inspect. There was a white dude who was traveling around with a Thai girl. She was asked to show her passports so the police could check if she was Lao national.
As soon as you get outside the bigger cities of Laos there is nothing but small villages where people live in huts. Most roads are gravel, and not asphalt. I saw a lot of beautiful woman out of my bus window but dating them would be impossible because of Lao Family Law. These people live in small communities where everyone knows everything about each other. Let me give you an example:
When I was driving around outside Vang Vieng people knew I was coming before I arrived. Everyone was constantly talking with people on their phones talking about stuff that is happening around them. So if you ever tried to date a girl outside the bigger cities, everyone would know it instantly.
If you absolutely want to date Lao girls in Laos the capital Vientiane would be your best spot in my opinion, but you have to be very careful as many hotels will call the authorities on you as soon as you enter your hotel room with a Lao chick.
Vientiane is the city in Laos you will have the most luck dating Lao girls. The city has a small dating scene that is going on in the most popular bars and nightclubs. Here you will find Lao girls that can speak English, are open minded, Westernized and educated.
Still, you have to be careful as you never know if the girl can be on team with the local authorities. Set-ups do happen unfortunately.
A lot of Lao girls was hanging out around the Mekong promenade around sunset time. Girls would sit for themselves playing with their phone, reading a book or just watching the sunset. I guess hooking up with some of them would be very possible if you found one that talks a little bit English.
Check out nightlife guide for Vientiane here. (Coming soon)
3: Meet Lao girls in Thailand
You will probably have much more success dating Lao girls in Thailand. The fact that the girl went all the way to Thailand to look for greener grass is a good teller that she’s a little bit more ‘adventurous’ than the average Lao girl that never left her village or family.
Not only that, in Thailand you wont get arrested for banging Lao chicks. That’s a huuuge advantage. 🙂 1 point to Thailand there.
So where can you meet Lao girls in Thailand?
They are in fact more places than you think. They are just hard to spot as they look similar to Thai people and there is no orange poster in their forehead blinking “LAO”.
Here where I live now in Bangkok there are 2 girls from Lao working as housekeepers together with a girl from Myanmar. They do laundry, cleaning and other simple tasks for the people who live here.
Most Lao girls who come to Thailand work illegally, so you won’t find them in any big established businesses like H&M or McDonald’s. Most of them work in small family businesses in bigger cities such as Bangkok.
I also met a lot of Lao girls in cities in Isaan. Nong Khai, Udon Thani and Khon Kean to mention some of them.
4: Dating sites
There is a lot of Lao girls on Thai Cupid and Thai Friendly. Many will write in their profile that they are Lao national but working in Thailand. So you should look for that.
There is no dating site that targets only Lao girls, but if you sign up for Asian Dating you can sort by country, choose Laos, and get up a lot of girls that lives in Laos, Vietnam and Thailand.
Worth a shot. 🙂
5: In Thailand’s bar scene
A lot of girls from Laos come to Thailand to make quick cash in Thailand’s redlight districts. Bangkok, Pattaya and Phuket are hot spots.
I’ve met several cute Lao girls in bars all over Thailand. But in Isaan, especially Nong Khai and Udon Thani there seems to be a bigger concentration of them than Bangkok, Pattaya or Phuket. Probably because it’s much closer to Laos geographically.
So as you can see. You have some choices if you want to date Lao girls. However, it’s much harder compared to lets say Thailand. The law is against you and most girls are very conservative that lives with their family until they get married.
Ready to hear about one of the wildest towns I’ve ever been to? Here it comes…
Just came back to Thailand after a week in Laos. My VISA were up and I needed to get a new one. I’m currently relaxing in Nong Khai after a wild week. However, Songkran is starting tomorrow so it wont be much time for relaxing.
Vang Vieng is a place I’ve never heard about until I came to the capital of Laos. When I was at my hotel a guy told me about this crazy town 150km north of the capital where you can pretty much do anything you want.
Drugs are sold blatantly in many bars. Alcohol is basically free. You can drive drunk and high. In daytime people are tubing down the river, while the locals set up temporary bars along the riverbank where you can get wasted on alcohol, marihuana, mushrooms, opium and laughing gas.
OF COURSE I had to check out such as place. I jumped on a bus and 4 hours later I arrived just before sunset. 😀
Nightlife in Vang Vieng
Vang Vieng is a paradise for backpackers and other people who like to take it to the edge. People start drinking at 10 am while tubing down the river. They continue to do this until the bars open at around sunset.
You will find bars all over Vang Vieng. Small bars, big bars, simple nightclubs, restaurants and hostels that serve alcohol. However, some bars are more popular than others, and some bars have more ‘happy stuff’ on the menu. I will tell you everything you need in this nightlife guide for Vang Vieng.
Most bars open around 19.00 when it gets dark and are open until after midnight.
Sakura bar is probably the most popular bar in town. The reason is simple. They offer totally free drinks from 19.00 to 20.00. There is no twist or condition. Just meet up in the bar at this time, and you will get free whisky for an entire hour.
The bar has a cool design with a dancing floor in the middle, while in the backyard there is a big area with lower volume you can sit while talking with people. In the front there was long tables where people played beer pong.
Viva Pub is another popular bar in Vang Vieng. This place offer free drinks from 22.00 to 23.00. Everyday there was a stream of people who walked from Sakura Bar to Viva Pub so they could get the free drinks there also.
This place is more like a nightclub. There is almost no seating, just a big dance floor indoors. The sound system is decent, but I think they played waaay to loud.
This place had just opened. It looked pretty dope. The sound system was awesome and the decorations and lights looked very good.
However, one thing was missing; people.
And I think I know the reason. Most people who come to Vang Vieng are backpackers on very low budgets. People drank as much as they could when Sakura Bar and Viva Pub had free drinks, just to save some bucks.
Then most people stayed those bars after free drinks as there was already a lot of people there and a lot of fun.
Free drinks: – Happy hour: – Open: 20.00 – 01.00
There was a lot of hot girls all around town every night. Thai girls, Chinese girls, Korean girls, Japanese girls and Western girls. At midnight most of them was so wasted on alcohol and mushrooms that you could literally pull them out of the bar and guide them gently to your bedroom.
The same is true for the guys. They were way too wasted and did not really hit on girls. So if you take it a little bit easy on the drugs you have a big advantage. You can get a lot of flags in this town.
Milan Pizza is just on the opposite side of Viva bar. This place was not popular because of free drinks or an awesome dance floor.
Milan Pizza is one of the few bars that offers a ‘happy menu’. Marihuana, opium and mushrooms can be bought here at any time when the bar is open. As long as you take the drugs inside the bar police will not harass you.
You could also buy happy pizza, happy soup or happy pancake. It’s really up to you.
Just like Milan Pizza. This place offer an alternative menu with a lot of different drugs.
This place blast out reggae all day long.
This was the only place I saw that is making fruit shakes with mushrooms or marihuana.
This was probably the most popular bar in Vang Vieng that offered an alternative meny.
This place was full of people from early afternoon until midnight. Just being close to this bar, and you could smell the marihuana.
I’m all for legalizing drugs. I think adults should have the right to decide what substance they want to poison their body with. Alcohol or whatever. Taking drugs is an act without a victim, and it’s just stupid to punish people for it. Save the prisons for the rapists and murderers.
When that is said. People react very different on different drugs, and when you take more than one drug at a time it can quickly become overwhelming, especially if you are not used to taking drugs. Every night there was people freaking out after taking mushrooms. Mushrooms is not dangerous, but it will make you see and feel things you probably aren’t prepared for.
Also. Always stay inside the bars. As soon as you go outside the bars with any drugs, there are local police / mafia in civilian that will pull you away and take you to the police station.
The current bribe for getting busted with drugs in Vang Vieng is 5 million kip (600 dollar). That is roughly a one year salary for an average police man in Laos, and it will absolutely hurt most people’s travel budgets.
Every Friday night there is a jungle party around 3 km outside town.
There is a dance floor that is decorated in trees and bushes, a African man that plays drums and several bars where you can buy alcohol. That’s what I remember from that place.
Every bar sell tickets to the event. Tuktuk drivers pick up people outside Viva Pub and Milan Pizza.
Tubing is another very popular activity in Vang Vieng. You basically take a tuk-tuk 4km upstream, then you tube down the river until you reach the town again. A long the river bank there will be many temporary bars set up where you can take a drinking break from the tubing.
I’ve heard this activity was much wilder in the old days with hundreds, even thousands of people tubing down the river daily. Then people started to die and it hit the international news. NGO’s started to complain then everything got shut down.
However, there are still some tubing activities going on, and personally I think it was pretty wild even today.
Hookers in Vang Vieng
There is a redlight district hidden just outside town. I found this place totally random while driving around on my motorbike.
It was about 7-10 small stalls with around 5 to 10 girls in each. I asked mamasan about prices. It could be anything from 150.000 to 750.000 kip. The white skinned girls was the most expensive, if she was hot or not didn’t matter.
There was a lot of cute young girls here. They looked really confused when I came there so I don’t think white guys come there very often. I did see some guys go with girls here the 15 minutes I was here, all was Asian guys.
Freelancers in Vang Vieng
There were freelancers in the bars and in the streets. However, many of them were ladyboys from Thailand coming here to party and maybe make som extra cash on the side. I also met som Thai girls that would go with me to the hotel for 1500 baht.
However, I didn’t see the need as there were plenty of drunk girls around ready for some fun for free.
Happy ending massage
I had several massages when in the parlors that was close to the popular bars. None of them offered any type of happy ending. You even shared room with other men so something more ‘fun’ would not be possible here.
Several tuktuk drivers offered me to take me to ‘good massage’, so I’m sure there exist something, but I didn’t find it myself.
Lao girls in Vang Vieng
Soo.. What’s up with Lao girls?
Lao girls has to be some of the most beautiful girls I’ve ever encountered. They carry themselves with such style and elegance that you just end up staring at them until it gets almost creepy. I almost drove of the road several times when I drove past groups of Lao girls.
I talked with several Lao girls, and while they were shy, their smiles could light up the dark side of the moon. Not to forget that they were very friendly. Most of them wear the traditional dress, the sinh, that covers up most of their body.
This dress is not supposed to be sexy, but I still found it sexy in a strange way. 😀
They are all tall, skinny, have big lips, big smiles, perfect make up, red lips and perfect posture.
There is just one big problem….
… IT’S ILLEGAL TO FUCK THEM AS A FOREIGNER…………….
Yes, you need to be married and have the proper documents in order before you can bang a Lao chick. I met several cute Lao chicks in the bars around Vang Vieng, but I was very hesitant on bringing them back to my hotel.
I talked with many of the foreigners that worked in the bars there, and it’s totally normal that the hotels call the cops as soon as you enter with a Lao girl. They will raid your hotel while you are banging her, and they will meet up with flashlights and cameras so they have proof.
Any foreigners who bang a Lao chick risks paying up to 5000 dollars in fines / bribes to local police chiefs. That’s big money… 🙁
Not only that. The girl you banged risks ending up in prison without trial for a very long time and she will be considered ‘de-flowered’ by her entire village. Not cool.
If you want to meet Lao girls you are much better of in Thailand. There is a ton of them there. You wont get in trouble for banging them in Thailand and their family still think they are virgins. In Nong Khai and Udon Thani there are ton of Lao girls that works in bars and restaurants. Take your pick.
There is a lot of activities in daytime except tubing. The scenery in Vang Vieng is some of the most beautiful and untouched nature I have ever seen. You have blue lagoons, caves, mountain tops, rural villages and amazing scenery everywhere ready to be explored!
Renting a motorbike is cheap and just as easy as in Thailand. Traffic is very calm so I absolutely recommend doing that.
Here are some scenery pictures I took on this trip. Click the pictures for full size.
If you are thinking about doing some serious exploring with motorbike I do recommend buying a medical mask. This place is very dusty and you will get itchy in your throat after some days.
You also want to be back before sunset as there are no street lights as soon as you are outside Vang Vieng. Most villages don’t even have electricity.
Vang Vieng has potensial!!
Now imagine this. Every weekend a ton of tourists comes to Vang Vieng to let loose. What happens in Vang Vieng stays in Vang Vieng. Really, the place doesn’t even have decent Internet!!
I met girls here from Korea, China, Japan, Thailand, Singapore, all over Europe and the US. People come here for all kind of reasons. The nature, the rivers, mountain climbing, tubing and getting wasted on drugs.
At night everyone ends up in the two most popular bars, Sakura Bar and Viva Pub. They all get wasted on free whisky, mushrooms and weed. Most girls stay in cheap dorms with no AC.
Then you come around telling girls about your air conditioned bachelor pad a stone’s throw away. You have cheap whisky ready in the refrigerator and a very comfortable king-sized bed ready for action!
You’d be king in town !!!
Yes, there are downsides to this town. It’s very dusty, there is almost no infrastructure, the place have no decent hospital and the mongering is limited.
But who cares..? I’m not saying you should stay there forever. Staying 3-4 months would be plenty, you could get a ton of flags at nighttime and cruise around on your beaten up motorbike in day time. That’s freedom! 😀
Vang Vieng had a small expat community, so you wont be alone up there either. Most of them are professional drugs addicts while they ‘work’ in the bars (keeps the bar running while they get free food, a place to stay and alcohol in return). That way they can stay on the road a little longer.
However, I met some motivated expats up there who was really trying to start up their businesses. One guy had a computer with VR glasses. A lot of tourists wanted to try that while they were high on mushrooms and/or weed. He made a lot of money.
Freelancers in Bangkok can be found many places all over the city. However, depending on what kind of freelancer you want you have to go to different places in Bangkok. I will tell you about all of them here.
What is a freelancer?
A freelancers is any girl that work on her own terms. She don’t belong to any specific bar, gogo bar or massage parlor. There can be many reasons for this. Some girls just prefer to work alone. When a girl work alone she keeps all the money herself and she can control when she want to work.
She don’t have to dance all night in a gogo until she pull a customer, and she don’t have to deal with all the drama and hassles girls go through in a regular beer bar.
Some girls also have regular jobs, but will go out in a nightclub at the weekends. Some of them (a lot) are willing to go with tourists for money. Making them part-time freelancers or prostitutes.
Warning about freelancers
While some girls work as freelancers because they prefer it, other work like this because they got kicked out of whatever bar they worked in. This could be because of bad behavior or because she caught some serious illness like HIV.
Therefor, always be extra cautions with freelancers in Bangkok.
Another thing to keep in mind is theft. If these girls steal something from you, you have no bar to go back to complain to. For all you now the girl will leave the town tomorrow and you will never see her again.
Freelancers in Bangkok
Thai girl freelancers
Thai girl freelancers usually hang around outside the entrance of Nana Plaza, at the parking lot or around the big Nana Hotel sign.
Another place you’ll find Thai girl freelancers are on the north side of Sukhumvit Rd between Sukhumvit Soi 11 and soi 15. They are scattered all around this area. However, the girls that are here are usually older and not very attractive.
Thai girl freelancers in nightclubs
Around midnight a lot of Thai girls will hit the clubs in Bangkok. A lot of these girls are freelancers that are willing to go back to your hotel for some pocket money in exchange.
Most freelancers are found at Climax in Sukhumvit Soi 11, this nightclub gets crowded every single day all year.
In the weekends Levels and Insanity might be worth checking out too.
One of the easiest ways to pull of a threesome in Bangkok is to find two freelancers in a nightclub that are together. These girls know each other and after som alcohol they will be into each other back at your room.
Thermae Bar Bangkok
Thermae is a very unique bar in Bangkok. What’s so special about it?
All the girl in the bar are freelancers, they are not employed by the bar in any way. The bar take zero % of the girls income for staying there. The girls decide 100% if they want to go with you or not.
This place is mostly visited by Japanese men. However, Westerners are welcome too but I know that a lot of girls here do prefer to go with Japanese men. So you might be rejected by some of the girls.
You can find the bar on the corner between Sukhumvit Rd and Soi 15.
Ladyboy freelancers usually hang out at the same spots as the Thai girl freelancers. Outside the entrance of Nana Plaza and around the bus station between Soi 11 and soi 15. Just as the Thai girls, the most attractive ladyboys hang outside the Nana Plaza entrance.
African girl freelancers
You can find African hookers and freelancers at Sukhumvit Rd between Sukhumvit Soi 11 and Soi 7. Most of them seems to hang out under Nana BTS station on the north side of Sukhumvit Rd.
I’ve also seen a lot of them hanging out around McDonald’s on the corner to Sukhumvit Soi 5.
Arabic / Muslim girl freelancers
Arabic and muslim hookers hang out outside Grace Hotel in Sukhumvit Soi 3. A lot of these girls are in solid burka. The only thing you can see is their eyes. I don’t know what the deal is with that, but if that is your thing, you will find them outside Grace Hotel in Soi 3.
Soapy massage in Bangkok is usually not that popular for Western people. These avenues are visited mostly by Thais, Chinese and Japanese. However, you are just as welcome as anyone else.
If you have never visited a soapy massage, and you don’t know what’s going on inside, or what to expect. Click here.
Keep in mind that since these avenues are mostly visited by Asian men, most girls here will be very white skinned as this is seen as attractive in Asia. If you like Thai girls with creamy tan you are much more better of in Soi Cowboy, Nana Plaza or Patpong as these areas caters to Western men.
Soapy Massage in Bangkok
Most soapy massages in Bangkok are located in the Huai Khwang district. The easiest way to get there is to take the metro to Huai Khwang station.
What will probably surprise you the most about these avenues are the cheer size of them. Some of the biggest soapy massages, like Emmanuelle and Poseidon are gigantic buildings that almost look like hotels in design.
Not only are they big, but some of them also exudes luxury. Every time I’ve been at Emmanuelle there is always a Ferrari or Porsche outside.
Check map at the bottom for all locations.
Soapy Massage in Huai Kwang
This is probably my favorite Soapy massage after Nataree closed down last year. The mamasan outside is a very friendly lady that will do every thing she can to make you happy. And like in some other soapy’s, she wont constantly hang over you asking to take a lady.
Most customers sit outside the massage building relaxing and drinking. When they want a lady, they simply walk up the stair, and all the girls will be sitting around in sofas.
One more thing I like about this place is that you can see the girls very close up. That way it’s easier to have a good look at them.
Evertime I’ve been here there have been around 30 girls in the lobby.
Prices are around 2500 baht for 90 minutes.
This probably the biggest soapy massage in Bangkok in size. As you enter the main entrance you will be impressed by the size. To get to the entrance you have to walk up the stairs outside to second floor. As you walk up the stairs you can see all the sports cars in the garage under.
When you get inside you get to a gigantic lobby with comfortable sofas everywhere with a band in the background playing live music. Pretty impressive.
Unfortunately the girls at Emmanuelle was not as impressive as the avenue itself. If you like girls that look as white as flour and big breast. Yeah this place is maybe for you. I also noticed that most girls here were quite old.
As soon as I was seated the papasan gave me a note with different price ranges. Funny thing was that the cheapest girls where the hottest one.
I drank up my Chinese tea and left the place.
Poseidon Entertainment Complex
This Soapy Massage is just as impressive as Emmanuelle in size and design. When you approach the building you are met with a gigantic statue of the God Poseidon, just to be met by a even bigger statue as soon as you get inside.
But just like Emmanuelle the girls here did not impress me. They looked old and chubby. The mamasan here constantly told me to get a lady, which turned me off.
So I left this place too.
Unfortunately, when I got to this place they closed in 10 minutes. The fishbowl was empty. However, I did see some hot girls outside waiting to be picked up so I guess this place have some hot girls?
What about Nataree Entertainment Massage?
As for now, this place is closed after a police raid last year. It has not opened since. I live pretty close to where Nataree used to be, and I walk past there almost daily. It’s dark every day and the doors are shut.
That’s sad because this used to be the best Soapy in Bangkok in my opinion with up to hundred girls, many of them young and very hot.
If anyone know where these girls work now, tell me in the comment section. 🙂
Bars in Huai Khwang
The Park Terrace
If you visit all the Soapy Massages, and you didn’t find a girl that you liked. Or you found a girl that you liked, and you want to bring her out. There is a good bar just next to the MRT station Haui Khwang with the name ‘The Park Terrace’.
The bar have live music outside, pool tables on the inside and at second floor it as private karaoke rooms you can bring your girl. If you didn’t find any girl you can drink some beers on the outside while listening to live music.
This place is quite popular and it fills up almost daily, and in the weekends it’s choked.
Claudia Club and Karaoke
Another similar bar, but smaller in size then The Park Terrace. At this place they have their own girls you can bring to private karaoke rooms.
Downstairs they have live music and around the stage the girls sit while waiting for customers.
There are more Soapy massages in this district that I haven’t talked about here. Reason is that I haven’t been to them yet. However I have included some of them on the map.
There are also a lot of smaller massage parlous in this area. Some of them can be hard to find as the signs are in Thai, Japanese or Chinese. Just have a look around and see what you find. If you don’t find anything you you like just go to Hi-Class Massage, and you will find hot girls.
Soapy Massage at Sukhumvit
Annie’s Soapy Massage
Annies Soapy Massage is located at Sukhumvit Soi 2 at Nana. To get here you can take the BTS to Nana station or Phloen Chit station. From there jump on a motorbike taxi for around 40-50 baht.
Annie’s have up to 100 girls to choose from, and some of them you can see here at their webpage.
This place also have some young girls in their early 20’s.
I time back ago I was going to Ayutthaya to meet a friend, then I fell a sleep ending up in the next city, Saraburi.
I decided to stay the night, and the next day, I decided to stay one more night.
I stayed at this hotel. It’s not on Agoda or booking.com. 500 baht per night. Not really a hotel, but nice cheap rooms just next to the two biggest bars in Saraburi. 🙂
Saraburi Nightlife Guide
Turns out. Saraburi is just a small town with not much going on. I asked several motorbike taxis about ‘fun stuff’ in this city. But they all looked at me like I was crazy, answering “mai mee” which means “don’t have”.
Maybe they didn’t want to bring me to the local fun houses? I don’t really know…
Anyways. I started to walk around the city to look for bars myself…
I found three bars in this city that is worth mentioning. However. I have lost the pictures from my phone and all the names where in Thai, which I don’t remember. So this will be the most simple nightlife guide until now. I will update it as soon as I go back to this town in the future.
Located along the end at Sut Banthat you will find a big bar with view over the lake. They have live music every night. I went out here on a Friday night, and the bar was packed.
I went to this bar same night as I went to bar #1. It was packed too. It had a funny theme with old cars and different agriculture machinery as decoration.
This place was very big, with most of the bar outside under open sky. Inside there was a live stage that played popular Thai songs and some Western songs.
Long Nour Bar & Bistro
This was a smaller bar more central in Saraburi, close to the main bus station. It had live music, drinks and food. Looked very fresh.
Massage In Saraburi
Behind the bus station, there was a big market where people came on motorbikes to pick up goods. Just behind this market there was a street with a handful of massage shops.
As I’m writing this I’m sitting at a guesthouse in Ayutthaya. Even tho I have a hefty hangover at the moment, life feels really good. My online incomes have been really good this month and I’ve been traveling a lot. <- The two best things on earth, passive income and traveling. Here is how you can find Nightlife and Thai girls in Ayutthaya.
I’ve been to a lot of small towns around Bangkok lately. Saraburi, Ayutthaya, Pattaya, Koh Larn, and Kanchanaburi. Tonight I will go to Lopburi and in two weeks I will go from city to city in Isaan, before entering Laos for another 60 days tourist VISA.
Life is good. 🙂
Nightlife in Ayutthaya
You might think that Ayutthaya don’t have much nightlife to offer as it is a place where most tourist come only for day trips. People come to see the temples and ruins at daytime, then they leave again shortly after.
However, this place have a lot to offer if you just know where to look. As always, check the map at the bottom for all avenues.
Farang / backpacker oriented bars.
Naresuan Soi 2
In old town you have a 100m stretch of road with a handful of bars. They offer food and beer. One bar here with the name Street Lamp, also had live music.
Street Lamp, Chiang House, Jazz Bar, Planet Earth and Tony’s bar are some of the most popular bars in this street.
Small beer: 60 baht
Big beer: 80 baht
This road is on the other side of the river relative to the train station. So if you booked a guesthouse close to the train station, you will have to take a motorbike taxi to this place as the ferry over the river stops after it gets dark.
Motorbike taxi from the train station area to Soi 2 should cost no more than 40 baht, and it takes 5 minutes.
There are some bars close to the train station. I was having a beer in the bar that is just on the opposite side of the train station at around 9pm, but then they told me that they closed, despite having a lot of customers at that point.
Most people at these bars, both around the train station and Soi 2, where backpackers, couples and older people. Not really my kind of fun. If you want something similar like Pattaya fun, with more energy and a lot of local talent, read on.
This place is in the new town of Ayutthaya. It’s a 500m stretch of road with a lot of different avenues. You will find tons of bars, massage parlors, karaoke bars and much more here. This street also had a ton of delicious street food.
The first bar I went to, Cowboy bar, is catering to farang guys. Then you have a lot of different karaoke bars nearby that caters to Japanese people. Further into the street, you have gigantic bar complexes with big stages with live music that caters to Thai people.
100m into Grand Street you will find Cowboy Bar at the left side. This place had a great atmosphere with a mix of Thai people and Europeans. Great staff and cheap prices.
Some of the girls that worked here was really cute.
The bar also had a pool table. The live music was great, but they need to find a new sound mixer.
Closes: 02.00 am.
The Rain Bar
This place is in the soi on the opposite side of Cowboy Bar. You can actually see it from Cowboy Bar. I didn’t drink here, but I spoke with two of the girls that sat outside. Very friendly girls that didn’t nag about money or drinks.
I borrowed their toilet and the bar looked super fresh. I would love to drink here one time with one of the cute girls that work here. They had karaoke in the main bar.
Just next to the Rain bar, there was a Japanese karaoke bar with a ton of girls outside, but I never got the time to check it out.
100m more into Grand Street you’ll find Kongpleng 3.
This place was on fire. It’s very similar to Tawan Daeng in Chiang Mai, but a little bit smaller in size. They had a big stage with live music, dancers and DJ’s. You can get a bottle of Blend here for 250 baht, drink all night and go crazy with some of the local talents.
Next time I go to Ayutthaya I will go straight to this place.
Closes: 01.00 am.
Inside Klongpleng 3:
Farung bar and pool
This bar was very hidden, but looked very fresh. You can sit inside with AC while enjoying your beer or playing pool. I only saw Thai people and Japanese people here.
Around this bar there were also a lot of dirty massage parlors. Most massage parlors had a ton of girls standing outside while waiting for customers.
When I entered this bar at around 22.00 people looked at me like I was from another planet.
I don’t think foreigners come here very often, or I was very early, as I was told later that night that this is were everyone goes after everything else is closed.
Jub Zeed had the most creative bar design that I’ve seen in a while. A gigantic robot with glowing eyes.
The bar also had 4 big private karaoke rooms.
Closes: 6 am I was told.
Inside Jub Zeed:
Happy ending massage in Ayutthaya
There are massage parlors spread all around Ayutthaya.
But if you’re looking for a massage with happy ending, you’ll have to go to Grand Street.
As soon as you go inside the small side sois of Grand Street, especially near the Grand Marked, you will see a lot of massage parlors with girls sitting around.
The street names with most massage parlors are Talat Grand Soi 8 and Talat Grand Soi 2.
In the Western world jealousy is seen as a bad and petty thing, in Thailand it just means that “they care”. That might sound crazy, but that is what a Thai girl will tell you if she’s jealous.
If you tell a Thai girl to stop being jealous, she will answer back something like “Okay, I will stop caring about you” or “I will stop my feeling with you”.
If you eat a pizza, and you get some tomato sauce on your cheek without noticing, then you go meet the girl you are dating, she will freak out while asking “who?!??!?”. Then you will be all like “Wtf are you talking about” because you don’t know about the tomato sauce before she quickly respond “you have lipstick on your face!! WHO?!?!?”.
If you forget to turn of your computer before you sleep so it look like you are online all night at Facebook, she will quickly ask you the next day “who were you with last night?!?!? Why you up so late??”…
If you send her a message that doesn’t fit in the conversation because of auto correct, she will instantly reply “Who you talk with?!?!? You send wrong?!?!?!”..
These girls walk around constantly paranoid about you banging or seeing other girls.
You can’t really blame them either. Thailand is the sex capital of the world, and as soon as you walk around here alone dressed slightly sharper than a homeless guy, or you’re white, girls will jump on your dick from every direction. Your girlfriend knows this too.
Regardless, it’s still a pain in the ass, and you have to deal with this early on, or it will only get worse and worse as she get more involved.
Just last week I was drinking at a bar in Bangkok with a new girl that I met, suddenly a girl came out of nowhere and started screaming like a maniac to the guy next to me.
After 20 seconds of screaming, she took the beer jug and the phone to that guy then smashed everything on the pavement. Then she left… WTF….
I asked the guy some minutes later who the girl was, and he said it was his ex-girlfriend. He said his ex-GF was mad because he was dating a new girl. If that is true or not I don’t know. Could be that he’s cheating also. Who knows..
My point is that when these people get angry or jealous, it can go overboard pretty fast when they lose their cool. Thai people are usually chill, but when they get angry holy shit run for your life.
In Thailand girls and boys don’t hang out together as friends. If two people of different genders are together, alone, everyone will think they have a relationship. The rumors will start going.
Thailand is not like the Western world were it’s totally fine to have friends of both genders, and where you can be with a person of the opposite sex without anyone thinking anything about it.
Maybe you can in some social circles down here with people who are studied abroad etc, but for the most part this apply all over Thailand.
So what can you do about it?
As soon as a girl that you are dating show signs of being jealous, you have to make it crystal clear that you won’t tolerate it. Say that you are a trustworthy guy, and not like Thai guys that fucks around like rabbits 24/7.
Tell her if she make this type of drama again, ever, it’s over.
At the same time you tell her that you will not hang around with other Thai girls as this is seen as a bad thing in Thailand if you already have GF. As people here (her friends) will think that you are a butterfly that is fucking around. Not good…
At the same time, tell her very clearly that when you are back in your country, she can’t go around making drama when you are talking with / hanging out with female friends.
If you tolerate this behavior it can really get out of hand and the girl will make you crazy as she will nag about other girls constantly.
As a general rule. Never talk about other girl that you have met in the past, the present or will in the future.
If your buddy got too drunk, tipped the bar girl 3000 baht because she had a nice ass, don’t tell your girlfriend that. Your girlfriend will twist that into “Oh, your friend tipped the girls? So that means the girls talked with you too”. You get the point here..
Keep your secrets secret.
Okay. So everything is working out fine with your girlfriend. You are living together and life is good.
Lets say you still want to have some fun at times, go to bars, meet buddies, maybe flirt with some girls without actually going anywhere with it, etc etc..
You also want to document this with your phone without your girlfriend finding out about your adventures.
Keepsafe will save your life
I’m using an app called Keepsafe. It’s a discreet app that look like an app for something technical on your phone. However, it’s really an app where you can import your private pictures behind a pin-code wall.
Unless your girl know about this app, she will never get suspicious about the app.
As soon as you have imported your pictures into the app, they will disappear from the regular album / picture folder. The only way to see the pictures again is to go into the Keepsafe app, insert your pincode, and look at the pictures from within the app.
You can also export the pictures from Keepsafe again, if you want to put the pictures on a computer later.
This way you can keep your phone open for you girlfriend, and she will never be suspicious about why she can’t play with you phone.
Because that is another thing. A lot of girls here will let you make a fingerprint in her phone, just to show you that they have nothing to hide. However, they want the same thing back from you.
That’s why Keepsafe comes in handy. You can hide everything that you don’t want to show her, and she can play with your phone. Everyone happy. 🙂
CM AppLock is another app I’ve tested out. It put apps of your choice behind a pin-code or fingerprint lock.
However, this is not a good app to hide stuff from you girlfriend as she will be suspicious about why you have a pin-code lock on certain apps. If you want to hide your pictures you also need to put a pin-code on every app that have access to you picture folder, like Facebook, Messenger, Camera etc. You have to type in the pin-code every time you open these apps. It’s just a pain in the ass.
Double sim-card phones.
A dude I met at a massage parlor some time ago showed me something really awesome. He had double sim-card slots in his phone. It basically means that he can have two different ‘phones’ in one phone. He could open different parts of the phone with different finger prints.
He used his BIG TOE to open the dirty part of the phone because he told that one of his girls had tried to open his phone with his finger while he slept. That shit was hilarious.
That’s it guys! Thai girls are cute and cool girls 99% of the time that is fun to be with. I would take any Thai girl over those fat obese pale Western women back home that can’t even take a fucking shower because it’s hip to be dirty and not shave armpits.
As long as you can keep the jealousy in checkmate you have nothing to worry about with Thai girls.
Here are my guide to Nightlife and Thai girls at Koh Larn.
Koh Larn is a small island just outside the coast of Pattaya and Jomtien. After 4 years of yearly vacations to Thailand, and after living here for almost 2 years. This was my first trip to this little island.
That might sound weird, as it is one of the closest islands to Bangkok, and you can get here in only 4 hours from Ekkamai bus station in Bangkok. Koh Larn is also a perfect daytrip from Pattaya if you want to experience a cleaner beach than what Pattaya has to offer.
How to get to the island?
There are two ways to get to Koh Larn. The 30 baht ferry or a speedboat (2500 baht divided by the amount of people in the boat).
I choose to take the speedboat out to the island because I was 5 minutes late for the 15.30 ferry. That pissed me off. The next ferry was 1700 and I would miss the last hours of daylight on the island.
Pro-tip: I had a very bad experience with the speedboat. We were 10 people on the boat (250 baht each). As soon as we got outside the pier the ride suddenly become very humpy because of the waves. One girl had her camera in her hand, and she had big trouble getting the camera inside her bag to protect it against the sea water that was splashing everywhere.
Suddenly her head bumped into the roof because of a very big wave, and I think she lost consciousness for a second because she had trouble keeping her balance.
The driver saw everything but he just kept on going even tho this girl had big trouble. Eventually I told the driver to stop the fucking boat for 10 seconds so the girl could get her camera in her bag so she could use her hands to hold tight.
When we got out in the middle of the sea, the driver stopped the boat to fill gas(???) When he tried to start the motor again he had a hard time starting it. He had to call some guy on the mainland to get a explanation on how to do it.
As the cream of the cake. The boat driver put us off far north on the island at some shitty beach with no people or taxi drivers to take us to the hotels. We had to walk through the forest to find a road. From there I had to hike with some local old guy. He agreed to take me to the hotel for 100 baht (2km ride).
So… That’s the last time I will take that speedboat to be totally honest. I hope they go out of business.
I took the ferry back to Pattaya two days later, and that was a much more pleasant experience, and it only takes 15 minutes longer. Totally worth it.
What kind of tourists are on Koh Larn?
Koh Larn stand out from other island in Thailand because it so close to Bangkok. A lot of middle class Bangkokians come to Koh Larn in the weekends to relax, party and be with friends. So if you ever come to this island you will see a lot of regular Thai people driving around on motorbikes just havning fun, chilling and eating in the restaurants around the island.
On the beaches you will find every type of people expect Thai people as they hate both sand, beaches and the sun. You will find a lot of Western tourists on the beaches that are here just on a day trip from either Pattaya or Jomtien. I also saw a lot of Russians and Japaneese people on the beaces.
Nightlife and Thai girls at Koh Larn
There are small bars and chill out spots on every beach on this island. You will find small bars all over the place that offers chill out seating where you can enjoy beer with friends or your lady with good view over whatever beach you are at.
One such good bar / restaurant is all the way north on the island. You can see all the way over to Pattaya from that bar. This place has no English name, but the Thai name is ครัวเฉลียงลม. Click here for location or check the map under for location.
Nightclubs at Koh Larn
Koh Larn have only one nightclub as far as I know, and even that can’t really be called a nightclub. The name is EDM Koh Larn. It can be found on the east side of the island smack middle together with some other bars with live music. Check map for location.
It’s a simple building with a simple light-show and simple furnishing. Can’t be compared to lets say Levels in Bangkok or Ibar in Pattaya.
Bars with live music
I found three bigger bars on Koh Larn, all with live music all night. All of them was just next to each other, so if one is boring, you can simply walk over to the next one. In the middle of all the three bars, you will find EDM Koh Larn.
People started to come to these bars around 19.00, right after sunset. Most people in these bars are Thai, not foreigners.
At around 23.00 around 50% of the people go home, and the other 50% go inside EDM Koh Larn to continue to party.
The names of the bars are Pause 11, Johnnie Walker and สุดเยต. Check map for location.
Map of Nightlife at Koh Larn
Beaches at Koh Larn
There are 4 big beaches at Koh Larn, and a handful of smaller beaches (some of them private). In this post I will cover the 4 biggest beaches.
If you want to see the sunset at the beach you go to either this beach, or to the beach just next to it, Tien Beach. I ate sea food at one of the restaurants here while enjoying the sunset. Very delicious food. 🙂
The beach seems to be mostly populated by Thai and Japanese.
This was by far my favorite beach. Mostly populated by Western people, I also saw a lot of Russian people. This was the beach with the most ‘room’ for each person, as there was not much people here compared to the other beaches.
The beach was clean.
I never bothered to stay on this beach. I drove my motorbike here, I saw all the people, and I left straight away. So much people, boats and tourists here that I just can’t enjoy it. It’s ruined by tourism.
This place was also swarming with Chinese people, and I usually try to avoid them…
Nual beach is all the way south on the island. This was the least populated beach, and I really liked it. Had some few restaurants and bars where you can get refreshments. However, I had to go back to Bangkok when I was here, so no time to explore more here, and my phone was out of battery, so I have no picture.
The island is quite small. You can drive to all the beaches having a look in only 30 minutes.
Bangkok has an amazing and diverse nightlife. No matter what you are searching for, you will find it in Bangkok. You will find anything from fully stocked nightclubs to laid back beer bars to amazing sky bars with breathtaking views of the Bangkok skyline.
Here are the top Bangkok Nightlife Areas.
I’m probably not lying if I tell you that Bangkok has the greatest nightlife in the world for the common man.
You can even book an escort to your hotel room Uber style, using Smooci. 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, you can go to the Smooci site and within a few quick clicks you can have a Bangkok hottie in a taxi on the way to meet you, with the ability to GPS track her all the way to your hotel.
Bangkok Nightlife Areas
Bangkok have four big nightlife areas located at different places in the city. For this guide I will tell you about three more that not many tourists know about which I think is good + some other bars outside the main avenues that are very good in my opinion.
Check out the bottom of this post for map of all nightlife areas talked about in this post.
Sukhumvit Rd is probably the most known nightlife area of Bangkok. You’ll find everything here. Beer bars, nightclubs, two of BKK’s most well known red light districts and a countless number of restaurants and massage shops. Most of the nightlife at Sukhumvit, especially from Nana to Phrom Phong, is catering to foreign men from 20-60 years old.
Nana – Nana is located at the beginning of Sukhumvit road. Most of the action is going on in Soi 4, Soi 7/1 and Soi 11. In soi 4 you’ll find one of the most famous red-light districts of Bangkok, Nana Plaza. Nana Plaza is filled with 20-30 gogo-bars and a handful of beer bars.
At soi 7/1 you will find a handful of beer bars. This street also houses Dr. Bj, a massage shop that will give you blowjob. Another unique bar in this street is The Devil’s Den. This bar you have to take atleast two girls to their private room.
At soi 8 you’ll find a handful of laidback beer-bars and some massage shops.
Best way to get to Nana is to take the BTS skytrain to Nana station.
Asoke – Just one BTS station down the road you’ll find another avenue of nightlife, Asoke. Here you will find one of Bangkoks most famous red-light districts, Soi Cowboy. Just as Nana Plaza, it houses around 20-30 gogo-bars + some beer bars and restaurants on the corners of the street. 200-300 meters up soi 23 you will find a cluster of girly beer bars and some very aggressive massage shops.
At soi 12 you’ll find a big nightclub named Insanity. This tends to fill up around 22.00 Fridays and Saturdays. 50 meter further in you will find The Den. A ‘luxurious’ karaoke bar with some pretty hot ladies outside.
Phrom Phong – Just one BTS station down the road from Asoke. You have Phrom Phong. Not much happening here, but there is some action on soi 33. A handful of beer bars and karaoke bars with some girls.
Take the BTS to either Nana, Asok or Phrom Phong station.
Different nightlife areas attracts different types of people. While Sukhumvit Rd attracts mostly men because of the red-light districts, Khaosan Rd attracts a younger generation of tourists that just want to party hard and have fun. Khaosan Rd is packed with tourists from all over the world 365 days of the year. Khaosan Rd is especially popular for backpackers, both men and female.
If you want to hit up with a white chick in Bangkok this street is probably your best shot.
Khaosan Rd is party-hard from sunset to sunrise. At Fridays and Saturdays some Thai people will come here too.
The street is packed with beer bars, many of them with live music playing popular music from the Western world. After midnight the street is usually packed with drunk tourists dancing in the street.
How to get there:
If you are not living near Khaosan Rd the only way to get here is by taxi or tuktuk. There is no skytrain or metro line that goes to this area of Bangkok yet.
RCA, or Royal City avenue is a nightlife area that is mostly catering to Thai people. You will find a handful of high-end nightclubs and a lot of bars here.
The three most popular clubs in RCA are Route 66, Flix and Slim. Other than that there are a lot of other smaller and larger bars all around this area.
Even tho this area is catering to Thai people, foreigners are also welcome. What is good about this place is that the people are authentic. If you get along with a girl in this area, it’s most likely not because she want your money, but that she likes you.
How to get there:
Take the MRT to Phra Ram 9. Then walk of exit number 2. Take a taxi or a motorbike taxi from there to RCA.
Silom Road is another big nightlife area of Bangkok. It’s housing Bangkok’s third most famous redlight area, Patpong. Another famous street, but that is only for Japanese people, is Soi Thaniya.
Silom Rd is also housing the biggest gay scene in Bangkok in Silom Rd Soi 2 and Soi 4.
Patpong are two parallell streets between Silom Rd and Thanon Surawong Rd.
Patpong 1 and Patpong 2.
Patpong 1 is a slightly bigger street and have a night market in the middle of the road from 18.00 to around midnight every day. Patpong 1 and 2 is filled with beer bars, gogo-bars and there are also countless massage shops around in the area.
Thaniya is a parallelle street of Patpong, and you’ll find it just below the skytrain station Sala Daeng.
Silom Rd Soi 2 and Soi 4
Soi 2 and 4 are housing Bangkoks biggest gay areas. Here you’ll find a lot of gogo bars with gay Thai boys, beer bars and massage parlors with guys massaging instead of girls.
How to get there:
If you are not living on Silom, and you want to check it out. The fastest way to get there is to take the skytrain to Sala Daeng BTS station.
Asiatique The Riverfront is located alongside Chao Phraya River (the biggest river through Bangkok).
Asiatique is a big gathering of restaurants, bars and gem shops. It’s open from 17.00 until midnight. There are some small roof bars also with nice view and live music.
This avenue seems to be catering mostly to Thai, but I have seen some tourists here too. For some reason Thai people seems to really enjoy this place, so if you have a date with a Thai girl this place is probably a good place to bring her.
The avenue also have a pretty big Ferris wheel and some other minor amusement park like facilities. The Ferris wheel costs 300 baht and will give you five rounds.
Taking a picture at the big Asiatique sign seems to be an popular activity here.
How to get there:
The easiest way to get here is to take the BTS skytrain to Saphan Taksin station. From there on there is a free shuttle boat that will take you to Asiatique. The boat goes every 10 minutes.
Rod Fai Night Market 2
This area I’ve just found out about, and I actually love it. It’s similar to RCA, but instead of nightclubs and expensive drinks it’s just a street filed with small cozy bars that sell mostly beer. All bars have small rooftops where you can look down to the main street while enjoying your food and drink.
A lot of bikers seems to come here, and the street is filled up with parked motorcycles in al shapes and forms.
A lot of hot Thai girls here, and they are authentic just like in RCA. Some bars also have live music.
I estimate that there is around 20-30 bars in this street packed together here. Just next to the bar street, there is a market (therefor the name) that is open Saturday and Sunday. This is actually a pretty cool market that sell a lot of fun stuff. Absolutely worth a look.
How to get there:
To get here you have to take the MRT to Thailand Cultural Center, then you walk of exit number 3. When you get out you walk take left, then the bar street is behind the first big shopping mall with the name Esplanade Shopping Mall.
CLOSED AT MONDAYS!
Jatujak Green (JJ Green)
Similar area as the Rod Fai Night Market 2, but smaller in size.
When you arrive at JJ Green there will be a small market in front that sells clothes, food and other cheap products.
On the back side you have a half circle that are filled with around 10 bars. You can sit inside with AC, or outside on the roof tops enjoying the view while enjoying your food and drinks.
There’s a ton of university girls here as the area is close to several universities. A couple of times I’ve been here alone I watch farangs from a rooftop bar hitting on hot uni girls around in the area.
You should absolutely check out this place. 😀
How to get there:
Take the MRT to Chatuchak station. Follow signs to Chatuchak park. When you get on the outside there will be a bunch of motorbike taxis. Ask them to take you to the market. Should cost around 50 baht.
CLOSED AT MONDAYS AND TUESDAY.
Other bars worth mentioning
Other then the main nightlife areas of Bangkok, there are also a lot of interesting bars and avenues outside them. Here are a few of them.
Loft to Bar
This one is pretty far out in “nowhere” in Bangkok, but I had a great time here! What is so great about this place?
The band that plays here are really awesome. They play a mix of popular music from Thailand and the west.
Not only that. You only pay 200 baht, and you can drink as much Singha as you can handle! Really good if you are on a budget and you like to drink beer!
I’ve decided to do a lot more guides from now on as they always ends up as my most popular posts. Who the hell care about my dating failures? I know they can be educative, as in don’t do what I do, but they do very poor in Google searches.
Bangkok have a myriad of different entertainment opportunities for grown men all around town. I’ve already covered so much about Bangkok. Just go to my Thailand page, go to the nightlife section at the top meny, and you can read everything you want about Bangkok.
If we ignore the chaos and how cramped the city is at times. It’s really the perfect city for grown men who want to have some fun. 🙂
Happy ending massage in Bangkok
Most of my friends that have come to Thailand have had their first sexual encounter in one of Thailand massage parlors.
Most will just go in for a regular massage, but then they are in the private room with the lady, she convinces him to do more than just a massage. These ladies really know how to make you horny.
A lot of guys that come to Thailand for the first time is also very shy when it come to ladies. So just having a ‘massage’, for then to end up in a private room with a lady, is a nice discreet way to ‘get it done’. If you go to a gogo-bar however, everyone knows what’s up when you walk out of the bar with a beautiful Asian lady. 🙂
Prices at Massage parlors in Bangkok (average) 1 hour:
Note: If you have an oil massage, then decide to also let the girl blow you. You have to pay for the oil massage and the blowjob. Making it 1250 baht all together.
Where to find happy ending massage in Bangkok
Massage Salons that offers extra can be found scattered all over Bangkok. In fact, most salons will offer it.
Usually when you go inside the salon, you will get a girl that are willing to do the extras. At some point under the massage she will tap you on the dick offering extras. If you say no she will usually leave, and another girl will come in and finish the massage in a regular way.
I’ve even been asked in the shopping malls for happy endings. So just because a place ‘look’ professional doesn’t mean it won’t do any dirty stuff.
However, if you go to a massage salon with the intent to get extras. There are several signs to look for.
Usually the closer the massage salon is to a red light district, like Soi Cowboy or Nana, the more likely it is that it offers extras. If you walk past a salon, and 10 women scream “hey sexy man” or something like that, you can be sure that this is not just a regular massage salon.
Check the map on the bottom if this page for all locations. My favorite streets are marked in green. 🙂
Sukhumvit Rd between Nana and Asok
Between Nana BTS station and Asok BTS station there are several massage parlors scattered around. Most of them are on the south side of Sukhumvit Rd.
However, I have to be honest. Most girls that work here are not girls, but older women, most in their 40’s. It’s very rare I see anything here that I actually want to go further than a massage with.
Sukhumvit soi 4
This is where you will find Nana Plaza, one of Bangkok’s famous redlight districts. The same street, soi 4, also have massage parlors scattered all around. However, you are more likely to end up in one of the bars here or in one of Nana Plaza’s gogo bars, as this is what the street is famous for.
Sukhumvit soi 8 and soi 11
Sukhumvit soi 8 and 11 have some massage parlors here and there. Most of them will offer extras. These streets are just next to the Nana BTS station so it’s very easy to get here.
Sukhumvit soi 11 is actually my favorite street at Sukhumvit Rd for nightlife. It has a good mix of everything. Nightclubs, good food, massage joints, bars and some great sky bars. My favorite burger joint is in this street also.
Sukhumvit soi 23
What’s special with this street? It’s just on the corner between Asok BTS station and Sukhumvit MRT station. It’s easy and fast to get here no matter where in Bangkok you are.
About 200 m up this road you will find a cluster of 5-6 massage parlors with a lot of girls sitting outside yelling in customers. The girls here are much younger then in Soi 4, 8 and 11. In fact, I see hot girls here every time I go here.
These parlors are very dirty and it’s almost impossible to only get a massage here as the girls will be all over you as soon as you enter the room.
Sukhumvit soi 33
Not exactly massage parlors in the traditional way. This street have a lot of Karaoke bars and massage parlors that caters to Japanese people.
However, the girls have nothing against farangs, and you are just as welcome. Especially in the weekdays when the business is slow and most girls just play on their phone.
Sukhumvit soi 24/1
Anyone walking past this soi without knowing what’s inside would walk past it thinking it was just another soi in Bangkok. At the entrance there is really nothing interesting. Just a couple of street vendors selling noddle soup and fried rice.
50 meter in however, the scene is quite different. Suddenly the street is much more illuminated from all the neon lights, then you will see 50 – 100 girls in front of 10 – 15 massage parlors. Most girls here are young, fresh and sexy. I’ve seen a lot of hot girls here. 🙂
To get to soi 24/1 you should take the skytrain to Prom Phung BTS station, then exit exit nr 3.
Not really my favorite area of Bangkok, but if you happen to be in this are why not take a look? You might stumble upon something you like.
You will find a lot of massage parlors around on Silom Rd and Surawong Rd. If you don’t find any girl that you like, this area also have a ton of street vendors where you can eat cheap and delicious Thai food.
Tim. What about Siam, or what about Khaosan Rd? Why have you ignored that?
Well. Most massage parlors in Siam, or Khaosan Rd are just regular massage joints that don’t offer extras. Some might offer extra, but it’s not the normal.
In some massage parlors you can ask the girl if she want to do extra if you like her, but some might say no, or hesitate for a first. You might also stumble upon girls in regular parlors, that are professional massage parlors, that offer you extras out of the blue. That have happened to me many times.
However, the places I have provided about offers extras 99% of the time, and some girls will pretty much jump on you as soon as you enter the private room.
This place was a pain in the ass to find, and the information out there on how to get there, and how everything works is simply awful. So here is my take on it.
Location:Google Maps Price: 1900 baht + 100 baht for 4 passport size pictures downstairs. Open: 8.30 to 12.00 and 13.00 to 16.40 mon – fri. Website:Here
People from India only get 7 days extra with this method. Click here for full list over what nationalities can do this.
How to get there
For some reason they have decided to build their new immigration office out in “nowhere” some kilometers southeast of Don Mueang Airport. To get here you have to take the MRT to Chatuchak Park station or the BTS to Mo Chit station.
When you are in the station you want to follow the signs towards Chatuchak Park. When you are out of the station there are four ways to get to the area that you need to go.
Minivan: Ask the minibus drivers what minibus goes to the immigration office. They will understand what you mean.
The minibus will let you off at the entrance of the government area. From here there is still a good kilometer to the building you need to get to. There is a free shuttle bus that comes here every 5 minutes. Just wait for it then go off at building B.
This shuttle bus will take you to the east entrance of building B. When you get inside, go to left, then go all the way until you are almost out of building B again, and the immigration office is on the left side. It’s a small door, in a very big building.
Price: 25 baht for the minivan.
Bus: Bus 66 goes to the same area as the minivan. Don’t know exactly where this bus goes from, but they said it was bus 66. Follow as above when going of at government area.
Price: 8 baht.
Motorbike: When you get out of the station there will be a ton of motorbike taxis waiving you towards them. At least if you look like a question mark like I did.
They will say that they can drive you all the way to the where you need to go. However, I would not go with motorbike as it is quite far, and you have to go out on a highway. I don’t want to drive on a highway on a motorbike without a helmet with a dude that probably can’t even read.
From Mo Chit / Chatuchak Park around 150 baht.
From Sukhumvit Nana / Asok area around 350 baht.
Taxis will take you all the way to the correct entrance at building B, as opposed to bus 66 or minivan.
You want to find this door in building B. You’ll find it all the way south in the building. It’s a quite small door in an otherwise gigantic building. I had expected something more obvious, so I used an eternity to find this place.
When you go inside, there will be an information desk where you explain what VISA you want to extend, and they will help you to the correct area inside.
The whole process took around 3 hours. When I got the queue number I understood after 5 minutes that this would take some time, so I went to the food court one floor down to eat some cheap noodles for 35 baht.
What you need to bring to speed up the process:
Passport photos (can get here for 100 baht)
Come as early as possible, they open 8.30.
Your passport. 😛
They have lunch break from 12.00 to 13.00. If you are waiting in line at that time, you’ll have to sit and wait while they go to eat. So come early. I was there around 09.00 and it was already quite full.
6 weeks ago I wrote that I want a girlfriend, and that is exactly what I did. I let a girl I’ve been dating a long time move in with me. Biggest mistake in 2017 so far..
I’ve been writing about this girl before. She was my romantic shower date girl. I usually met this girl 5-8 times a month to fuck her brains out.
This was my perfect girl. 😀
She was always well-groomed, she had an outstanding body, she was very feminine and she was fun to be with as she loved to go on small trips here and there. She was fun to travel with, she could have a conversation in English and at the same time she was the perfect fuck toy. I will never forget that ass.
What more can a guy ask for?? 🙂
So I did the crazy thing. I let her move in with me.
We were together every evening. We would go out to eat together then we would go back to my place to fuck like rabbits. It was all good. 😀 😀
Everything worked out just fine the first 4 weeks, but then everything started to go downhill. 🙁
It started 2 weeks ago. I had two female friends from back home that came to Bangkok. They asked me if I could show them around in Bangkok since I knew the city. I said sure no problem.
Out we went, and when the night came we went out to take a couple of beers and we ate the Daniel Thaiger burger.. I asked my GF if she wanted to go with us, but she was tired after her work, so she went back to my apartment.
When I got back that night my GF would not talk with me. She said she will “angry me until tomorrow”. I asked her if it was because I had been with the girls from back home. She did not give me any answer but I knew that was the ‘problem’. Whatever… It was already midnight and we were going to sleep anyway..
BTW. I ‘ve told this girl earlier that she have to tolerate me being with female friends from back home.
The next day she was happy again.
Two days later it was the weekend again. I told my GF that I wanted to go on a small trip outside Bangkok to get some fresh air. I said lets take the train to some small city outside Bangkok.
She said she didn’t want to go because she was ‘tired’ after a week of work. I said ok whatever I will go anyway so you can relax alone.
When I got back on Sunday she was angry again. This time she was actually angry, and not only ‘passive’. I asked what the problem was but she would not tell me again.
Then she started to ramble on about I had been with other ladies when I was outside Bangkok without her.
She also brought up the girls from back home that I had been a guide for some days earlier. For no fucking reason.
I chose a crazy GF.
Then, three days ago. We had the grand finale of drama, and she proved to me that she’s nothing more than a crazy and jealous drama queen. This shit would never get any better with her. As she got more secure around me, she would unleash more and more of the real her on me.
In her mind we were now ‘set’.. We were together. That ment she could drop her facade, and be how she really is. That’s my theory at least.
So what happened?
I do freelance model jobs in Bangkok once in a while. This time she wanted to join me under the shoot. I said sure why not go on.
When we got to the set at Sala Deang me and my GF met up with the photographers for that day.
Then the model that I was going to take pictures with came. And my GF fucking freaked out because she could not control her jealousy.
My GF sat for herself with her phone at the set for 10 minutes, then she said she had to go because it was not ‘fun’ for her and that she didn’t feel welcome.
I was like sure do whatever you want. She said she would come back when we was done.
When she came back I had one session left with a photographer. She had to stand in the background watch me taking pictures with this hot lady from South America.
She could not deal with that so she spent that time looking angry as fuck while she gave me the finger. She walked around in the background in circles not knowing what to do… Wtf?? Who the hell would do anything like that in public?
When I was done. Me and my GF grabbed a taxi to get back to my apartment. She didn’t say a word.
When we got back to the apartment I asked her if she’s jealous again because of the girl I took pictures with.
She was like no I don’t want to talk about it. I will angry you until tomorrow.
No. NO YOU WONT. We WILL talk about this shit RIGHT NOW!
I’m sick of this drama now. You can’t act like this every time I do something without you. I have to make money you know, and doing model gigs are fucking well paid and it’s fun and easy money…
We then had a long fucking argument that I should not do these gigs because I ‘sell myself’. Pure bullshit she’s just jealous..
Then she left the apartment…
When she came back three hours later she was drunk. I knew this because she have Asian flush syndrome. She look like a tomato after she drinks alcohol.
She came back, locked herself in the bathroom. When she came out of my bathroom she stumbled around in my bedroom like she had fucking spasms, ‘collapsing’ on the floor like she’d done an overdose on heroin. It’s the worst acting I’ve ever seen, and she looked like a complete retard.
My head started to boil, what does this girl takes me for? She think she can do this shit and get away with it?
Fuck it. FUCK THIS. I said to her I will go out and have a good time. I’m sick of this stupid meaningless drama. You have acted up like this 4 times already in two weeks.
When I tried to go out the door she started crying like a little bitch asking me to stay.
NO, I’m going out. I moved to Thailand to have a good time, not wasting my energy on morons like you.
This girl is just 40 kilos so I just continued walking even tho she hold my arm. She was crying and screaming no while I walked out of the condominium.
Holy shit this girl is walking up the entire building.
Then I grabbed her arm and pushed her away so she fell on the ground. I then started running down the stair. She quickly started to run after me while screaming stop LOL.
When I got outside, she actually followed me even tho she had no key and could not get inside again. She was screaming ” I CAAAN’T GET INSIDE AGAIN BUUHUU HEELP MEEE”.
I continued to walk away from the building, but I could hear her screams in the distance…
Shit I can’t leave this girl outside the building screaming like this. She’s not even dressed. What the hell…
So I walked back, told her to get the fuck up, and follow me back to the room. When we got back to the room I told her to sit down and shut the fuck up.
Listen. I’m done with this shit. You are 25 years old, not a 10-year-old retard. Now you go to the bedroom and fucking sleep. I will go out. If you follow me this time, and you lock yourself out, you have to sleep with the soi dogs. I will NOT save you one more time.
Ok, she said. Like a little child that knew it fucked up big time. Now she knew I was serious.
I went out, and came back a couple of hours later after some beers at a random bar. My GF was sleeping. The next morning she dressed up and went to work.
No more drama please
I took all her shit while she was at work. Clothes, make-up and laptop, and I left it outside with the security guard. Then I told the staff to delete her key-card so she couldn’t get inside again.
I knew that if I told her to leave while she was inside my apartment. It would only be a another nightmare of drama, just like the night before. I don’t have time for dat…
I sent her a message on Facebook that she could pick up her stuff outside with the security dude.
She already picked up her stuff, but I haven’t heard a word from her, and I don’t think I will in a long time.
Was I too harsh?
I don’t think so. I have one life and I’m going to enjoy it. I’m not going to look back at my life when I’m 80 years old thinking “I wasted my life being a miserable cunt”.
I’m not saying that I can’t deal with girls that have real problems. Of course, if a girl that I care about have actual issues I would go out of my way to help her. But this stuff is not that. This is just pure bullshit drama.
Besides. I can’t let a crazy lady like that have access to my apartment. What happens if she get a little bit more crazy next time? I have camera and computer equipment for over 300.000 baht in my apartment. What if she breaks some of that in one of her tantrums?
In her last tantrum after the model gig she threw her phone in a random direction in my room and almost hit my 100.000 baht laptop. If that phone had struck the screen it would break no doubt.
Spending 100.000 baht on a new laptop would set me back a lot of work. I don’t want to waste that kind of money just because of some girl can’t control her fucking emotions.
Another thing that irritated me with this girl was her addiction to Facebook. That is a problem all over Thailand, but this girl was a freak. It was like her entire life evolved around making her life look awesome on Facebook.
Even the days she had those idiotic fights with me, and she left in a tantrum, she would update her profile, put out cute pictures of food, drinks and coffee like everything was just perfect. What a fucking joke..
NO more GF’s for Tim
I think I was born to be single. Don’t misunderstand me. I LOVE women, but in small doses. I don’t have time for all that drama that goes along with these creatures.
I will date them. Hang out with them. Bang them and have fun with them. But as soon as they gets too safe around me, and they let down their facade and start with all that drama shit. I will stop all contact, delete and block.
To be honest I think its much better to just go to the local blowjob bar to get your balls drained. Then you can continue with whatever you do drama free. 800 baht for a blowjob and a drama free weekend sound like good fucking deal if you ask me. 🙂
I hate drama.
What have I learned from this? 🙂
If you want a Thai girlfriend you should do some serious research with the girl you have chosen. A lot of these girls will be cute and adorable-as-fuck when you are dating them, but as soon as they move in they will put down their guard just to become lazy cunts that don’t want to do anything except lying on the bed playing with their Facebook.
Another thing with Thai people in general is that they suck in conflict management. Everything down here is “no problem” until it’s suddenly “big problem”. That is a theme I’ve noticed with a lot of girls here. You don’t want to get into a serious relationship with a girl that can’t talk about simple problems without starting a ton of drama.
You need to vet the fuck out of these girls.
I thought I knew this girl WELL, and I’ve been around her for almost a year. She had a good job with bachelor degree. She’s been to China, USA and Japan. But even this girl was just a drama queen that ended up sitting almost naked outside my condominium screaming like a complete retard.
Having a budget is probably one of the most important strategies for moving to Thailand successfully. There are no safety nets here that will catch you if you fuck up in any way.
In fact. Right now several foreigners are stuck in immigration detention centers around in Thailand because they used up their money, had no money to get back home, then got arrested for overstaying their visas.
Some people have no money or family / friends back home that can help them. These people can be stuck for months, even years in these detention centers.
Here is a video from Bangkok Immigration detention center. Does NOT look like a fun place.
If you don’t end up in one of the detention center, you’ll end up hanging out with these crazy bastards at Beach Rd in Pattaya.
It’s not a fate I wish on anyone! Imagine being stuck in Pattaya, with all those hot hookers, but with no money to do anything. 🙁
Here are three different budgets for anyone who want to move to Thailand.
Remember that these budgets are very simplified. This is just to give you an idea. It’s not actually budgets that I recommend to use. I’ve also excluded VISA costs and travel insurance as those costs differs so much from people to people.
If you have a legit job in Thailand you don’t have to think about VISA, as you don’t have to go on VISA runs. If you are here on tourist visas like I am, you have to factor those trips into the budget too.
You also have to add the costs for travel insurance. Prices for insurance differs so much depending on what country you are from so there is no point for me to add it.
15.000 baht per month (450$)
This is what I call the “I’m moving to Thailand no matter what” budget. Your budget would look something like this:
Rent: 5000 baht Food: 9000 baht Fun: 1000 baht
What would a 5000 baht apartment look like? Well, that depends where in Thailand you want to live. For simplicity I will only talk about Bangkok, a place I have lived and know a lot about.
In Bangkok, if you live on the outskirts, like Bearing, Mo Chit, Bang Sue etc, 5000 baht would give you a simple room with a double bed, AC, maybe a small kitchen and a toilet. If you look long enough, or you know someone, you could maybe get something bigger with separate kitchen and bedroom.
9000 baht per month in food equals 300 baht per day. This is plenty as long as you eat local Thai food. Maybe you could save a little bit money if you buy a big pack of oatmeal and eat that to breakfast, and use those money to eat expensive Western food once in a while.
A meal in the local street kitchens and local restaurants usually cost between 30 and 80 baht. This food is delicious and clean. I’ve never had trouble with local food in Thailand.
200 – 300 baht per day is what I usually spend on food down here when I’m doing nothing or just working. It’s only when I go out with friends or into more touristy areas I’m using more money on food.
What kind of fun can you have for 1000 baht per month? To be honest. Not much. It’s enough for maybe one trip out in some bar. Places like Soi Cowboy, Nana Plaza, Walking Street Pattaya or any popular nightclub in Thailand you can forget about.
At Levels in Bangkok you would have enough for 4 beers, and you’d had to walk home.
Should you move to Thailand if this is the budget you have to play with? I would say no fucking way. It would be boring as fuck as you only have money to exist, and that’s it.
I’m usually only on this budget when work for several days in a row. I will be inside all day working on my computer, go out and eat, then go back home to work more.
30.000 baht per month (900$)
This is the minimum, on average, I would budget per month for living in Thailand long time.
You’re budget would look something like this:
Rent: 8000 baht Food: 13.000 baht Fun and travel: 9000 baht
For 8000 baht per month you’ll get a modern condo outside downtown Bangkok (Siam, Nana, Asoke, Ekkemai).
At the outskirts (end stations of BTS and MRT) you could probably score a modern condo with shared swimming-pool, laundry / cleaning service and free shuttle-bus to the closest MRT / BTS station.
13.000 baht per month is more then plenty. You can eat cheap Thai dishes most of the month, but debauch once in a while with Western food or food in more ‘luxuries’ areas like a skybar or a high’end mall.
Fun and travel:
9000 baht should be enough for plenty of fun per month. Of course, you can’t go crazy every night like you would if you came her as an tourist for 3 weeks, but you can still have fun.
Who would I recommend this budget for? Anyone who is coming to Thailand with a plan to make more money. You can live of this budget for a while, while you expand your businesses, whatever they are.
As I see it. You need 15.000 – 20.000 baht per month to cover the minimum. Rent and food. Anything you make over that, you can use on whatever the fuck you want. Delicious food, travel, booze, hookers, membership at gyms, bling, better apartments or whatever you like.
50.000 baht per month (1430$)
This is what most of my Thai friends consider ‘enough’ money to live a comfortable life in Thailand. With 50.000 baht per month you will have a lot of economical freedom. You don’t have to think about every baht you are spending.
Your budget would look something like this:
Rent: 8000 – 20.000 baht Food: 15.000 baht Fun and travel: 15.000 – 27000 baht
With this budget you have a lot of freedom to choose where you want to live. You could spend less with a nice condo in the outskirts of Bangkok, or you could spend more to live more central. In Bangkok apartments seems to be more expensive the closer you are to Siam, Nana, Asok and Ekkemai.
For 15.000 baht in semi-central areas like Suttisan or Victory Monument. You’ll get a hyper-modern condo with good view, shared swimming-pool, laundry / cleaning service and free shuttle bus if it’s not in immediate distance to a BTS or MRT.
You can eat whatever you want, whenever you want. You can even eat in nicer restaurants and skybars once in a while without worrying about going bankrupt.
You can go on dates regularly and pay for food and drinks for the girl you are out with.
Fun and travel
If you have this budget, and you are not tied to a job you have to meet up to. You can pretty much do whatever you want whenever you want.
50.000+ baht per month
There are no point of making budget over 50k+. The money you are making after the 50k mark will only go to better apartments, nicer food, more travel etc.
If you are on 60 days tourist visas, with the possibility to extend 30 more days at a immigration office. You have to go out of Thailand every 90 days.
I usually spend anything between 7000 baht to 20.000 baht on a VISA run, depending on how long I stay outside Thailand. That is on average 2400 to 6700 baht per month.
To find cheap flight tickets for VISA runs I usually go to Skyscanner. This site has that awesome function that you can choose departure, but leave arrival as “everywhere”. It will then find the cheapest flight ticket to “anywhere”.
Pretty dope, and you can discover some cities you never thought of going to.
Travel insurance prices varies A LOT depending on where you are from. Sometimes I meet guys down here, and when they tell me what they pay for insurance my jaw drops because it’s so much.
I have my travel insurance through my bank back home. I pay around 450$ a year for my insurance. That is with no deductible meaning I can demand back my money no matter how small the cost is.
It covers emergency medical and dental costs. <- The most important. But it also covers theft and vandalism of personal belongings like laptops and cameras.
Some of the reason why I get so good price is because everyone in my family have insurance through that bank, and we’ve got some good premiums over time.
If you can get insurance with your entire family, you should try to manage that. You can save a lot of money that way.
Computers, cameras, equipment etc…
Have any hobbies or you like to buy new tech? You will have to put that into you budget too.
I love to take pictures and to do videos. Because of this I buy a lot of camera gear. There are so many good shops in Bangkok for camera gear. Sometimes I wish I was rich so I could go berserk in the shopping malls here. It’s absolutely insane what you’ll find here if you look around.
I can’t even tell you how important it is to have a buffer when you live in countries like Thailand. You never know what will happen. What if you fuck up a tooth and you need to get a new tooth? That shit is not cheap even here in Thailand. I don’t know about you, but I don’t want to walk around looking like a pirate.
What if you crash a motorbike, your own or a bike that you rented. You have to pay for that shit one way or another. In most cases it doesn’t even matter if it’s your fault or not.
It’s always a nice to have a pile of cash stored somewhere just in case something unlikely should happen.
As you can see, you can live a lot of different lifestyles in Thailand.
Personally I could never live on 15.000 baht per month, but some weeks ago I met a girl from Poland that lived in Chiang Mai because she learned Thai massage in a temple(?). She said she spent only 3000-4000 baht per month on food.
I didn’t understand how that was possible, then she said she was a vegan, and that she made most of her food herself.
In her sparetime she never went out drinking and spent most of her time reading books or doing yoga.
On the other hand. If you go out partying in the hottest nightclubs in Bangkok every weekend, and drag back hookers every second night, you can spend her monthly food budget in a single hour.
You need to find out what lifestyle you want to live in Thailand, then you have to figure out if you have the money for that lifestyle. If you have, everything is fine. If you don’t, you have to adjust, or find out ways to make more money.
I think, since I moved to Thailand in 2015. I’ve spent on average 50k – 60k baht per month.
Bangkok is a chaotic city. It’s hard to argue against that. If you are coming here as a first timer it can be an overwhelming feeling, and most people can’t wait to get out.
I felt like that too, and I still do at times. But when you know the city, and you know how to get around, this city gets much more bearable, and maybe you will even like it.
Truth is. This is an amazing city where pretty much everything is possible. I won’t go into that here as I’ve already written so much about Bangkok. Here, here, here and here.
So, here we go. How to get around in Bangkok like a pro.
Bangkok have a traffic-jam issue. New skyscrapers pop up every week but little seems to be done about expanding the public transit system. There are 8 million people in this city and the city only have 1 metro line and 2 sky-train lines. It’s ridiculous.
Rush-hour in Bangkok is between 07.00 – 09.00 and 17.00 – 20.00
At this time try to avoid going anywhere. I know that sound ridiculous but it’s really bad at those hours. If you have to get somewhere always take the sky train or metro. If the place you are going to isn’t near a sky-train or metro station. Find the nearest station, go there, and take a taxi from there, or a motorbike taxi as they can drive between the cars.
In rush-hour avoid taking a taxi anywhere as a rule.
If a taxi driver know the traffic is really bad to where you are going, he will most likely reject you. They rather sleep in a side-street in their car than making almost no money from their meter because they are stuck with you in a 2 hour long traffic-jam.
Avoid taxis in red area
Is a general rule. Avoid taxi in the red area under between 06.00 and 00.00. This area suffers from chronic traffic-jams all day. It should not be a big problem to avoid taxis in this area as most of it is covered by sky-train and metro.
Taxi or public transport?
If you’re more than three persons, and you’re going more than 3-4 stops with metro or sky-train, and it’s not rush hour, or you’re not inside the red zone above. Just take a taxi. It will cost less then what you have to pay for the sky-train and/or metro tickets.
If you’re two persons, and you are going with both sky-train and metro, for more than 4-5 stops. Same rule apply. It’s cheaper with taxi.
Always get a taxi with meter
If a taxi driver can see that you are a rookie in Thailand. 99% will try to tell you that the meter is not working so they can give you a fixed price instead. This will always be more expensive for you, and in some cases, a lot more expensive.
Avoid taxis outside tourist attractions, malls and big hotels. These guys will almost never give you a ride with meter. Just walk 100 away from the attraction, and pull a taxi that is already driving. These guys are usually much more honest.
A taxi with a red light in the front window is available, not busy. Usually red means no or busy, but not with Thai taxis.
When to use motorbikes?
Motorbike taxis are for smaller trips inside side streets etc. They can also be used when it’s heavy traffic as they can go between the cars. I use motorbikes all the time. I love ’em.
These guys are cancer. Avoid by all means. You should only take a tuk-tuk one time in your life, just to have done it, then never again.
Tuk-tuks are dangerous, noisy and very expensive as they always go by fixed price (tourist price). Why bother?
What more can I say? Try to always avoid going around town in rush-hour. It’s really bad at that time. Get to know the sky-train and metro system. It’s not hard at all as there are only three lines. It’s not exactly the London metro..
If there are no sky-train or metro station where you are going, go as close as you can, and take a motorbike taxi from the closest station.
Do you have some more tips? Comment in the comment section under.
There’s no doubt that online dating is the fastest and most efficient way to meet and date Thai girls in Bangkok. You can hit up hundreds of girls in no-time and meet them the same day, and you can start hitting up girls before you even arrive Thailand. Internet magic right there guys!
However, nothing can beat the rush of some ‘oldschool’ chasing. In fact, it’s healthy to hit on girls in real life as it keeps your social antennas up to date. If you stay online for too long you will end up as some old weirdo that girls will run away from while having a full on panic attack. You find these people all over Thailand’s dirty scene. These losers haven’t talked to a ‘real’ girl for decades and have no idea how to be a pleasant human being and they don’t know how to read signals so they have no idea when to stop or when they do something wrong.
Anyways. That’s not what you are here for.
Here are some great day game spots in Bangkok. Yes, you can hit on girls all over town. But as you know Bangkok is a messy place and not all places are comfortable.
I’ve marked the shopping malls in green on the map above. There are a lot more shopping malls in Bangkok, these are only a few of them. In fact, there is pretty much a shopping mall outside every skytrain and metro station.
At Siam there are a cluster of big ass shopping malls with a ton of hot girls working, shopping and hanging out. There is a cinema at top floor at every mall. Great place to hang out as all of them have comfortable sofas and dimmed lighting.
Go crazy guys! 😀
Parks are another great place to hit on Thai girls. From Mon to Fri most parks are filled with people who like to exercise. I’ve seen some really hot girls here that are in top-notch shape.
In the weekends the parks are filled with people chilling and hanging out. Most people with good office jobs that give them time off in the weekends.
I’ve never seen any Thailand blog or Youtube-channel mention the hospitals in Bangkok. That is strange because they are packed with hot nurses in nursing outfits. Just linger in the area around a hospital and it wont take long until you see a hot nurse. Then you can ask her out to a coffee shop. They won’t mind that. 🙂
Go to Siriraj Hospital. This hospital is on the other side of the Chao Praya river. The only way to get to the other side is by boat. Linger around the ferry pier. When you see a hot nurse going on the boat, you make sure you get the seat next to her. 🙂
If you get serious with her. She can tell all her friends that “you just came out of thin air at the boat when she was done with her shift”. How romantic isn’t that? <3
Here are some randoms spots around town that I’ve found good to hit up chicks.
This is just next to Victory Monument. It’s just a chillout place with a lot of benches and a tent’ish roof. A lot of people hang out and relax here while they drink a ice coffee. This area is also a transportation hub between the skytrain and buses around the town.
Platform between Siam Paragon and Siam Center
For some reason a lot of Thai people stop here to take pictures. Sometimes there are some cute art exhibitions here that the girls like to get a picture in front. What a great opportunity to help them and maybe get a conversation going? 😀
There are probably a ton of other great places to chase Thai girls. If you know about some spots that should be mentioned in this post, tell me about them in the comment section so I can add them to the map.
Two not-so-great places to hit up girls
Maybe I’ve just been unlucky, but most girls that I’ve talked with in coffee shops have pretty much ignored me or been pissed off. From what I understand Thai girls look at the coffee shops as a ‘holy-grail’ where they can get some peace from everyday life, noisy streets and the heat while they enjoy their cold ice-coffee.
I think it’s that simple. Let the girls have a free space where they can just relax. I’m not trying to sound like a feminist here..
Sky-train and metro stations
Why do all Thailand bloggers and YouTubers always mention these areas? They suck. It’s crammed, hot and people are just tired and want to go home. It’s a really shitty place to hit up girls.
That it for this time. Remember to tell me in the comment section if I’ve forgotten som good places to hit up girls. Lets share our knowlegde!
I ended my year with a trip to Koh Chang, one of Thailands most beautiful islands. Before I went back to Europe 5th of January to visit family and friends.
In February I will go on a trip all the way up Isaan, one city at the time with train, before I end my trip in Vientiane, Laos.
My point is. No matter where I am, I can pull out my laptop and make money.In fact, some of my income is 100% passive. That means I don’t even have to work to make them. I’ve already done the work, and the money trickle in slowly but steady.
It’s a god damn good feeling! 😀
There is a million ways to make money online. All it takes is your imagination, hard work and the dollars will start to trickle in. Trust me guys… If I can do this shit, so can you. I’m an idiot.
Did you know there is a dude who travel around the world and let people stare at him? That’s how he makes money…
I knew that if I could multiply this online income, I could live a dream life in cheap tropical countries like Thailand, Cambodia or The Philippines.
Not only could I live a dream life, but it’s also the responsible thing to do. An extra income is very nice to have. What if you become sick and can’t do regular work anymore? Or what if you just loose your job because of bad economical times? It’s always smart to have a second semi-passive stream of income.
General tips for making online income
1: Try a lot of different things
Never put all your cards in one basket. If you only have a single source of online income, what do you do if it fails? You would be f***ed…
Right now I have 5 sources of income, they are:
Profit from renting out my apartment back home. This is steady and safe income.
I do translations jobs from English to Norwegian for a big international company. Mostly mobile apps in the off-shore industry. I don’t have many jobs, but when I get them they demand quick delivery and it’s good paid.
I still do some translation jobs and background removals on Fiverr.com.
Thai Cupid, Thai Friendly and Agoda sales through Goodbye Boring Life.
Black jobs here and there. As I said, I have a pretty decent DSLR camera. I’ve done gigs for a few hotels down here. I’ve done new fresh pictures for them that they can use on Agoda.com or booking.com
Lately I have started to play around with another source too, stock images and stock video. I met a Thai lady some time ago that made around 2000$ online from the website Shutterstock, per month!!!
She showed me exactly what she did, what types of pictures she took and her earnings. I learned a lot.
She had 20.000!!!!!! pictures uploaded in a 12 month period. She have probably worked 2-3 hours on that every day that year. But it did pay of in the end, didn’t it? 🙂 2000 $ a month in Thailand is a fortune!
2: Start easy and simple
Don’t jump on the make money online train and think that you will do bank the first week. If you go into this ‘business’ with that attitude you will become unmotivated very quickly.
Competition is high, and you will probably have to do jobs in the beginning for slave salary, maybe even free! It’s all about building up a reputation and a network so you can score good jobs.
Let me give you three examples:
1: When I started out on Fiverr.com, I did translation jobs for 5$. I would translate 800 words for only 5$! That usually took me 1.5 hours.
However, as the jobs came in, good reviews came in too. With good reviews I can crank up the price. Eventually I came in contact with a big company that have translators from all over the world to translate apps and software.
2: The first 4 months of Goodbye Boring Life I did not make a single sale on Thai Cupid or Thai Friendly. However, the last 3 months the sales have started to trickle in slowly. I don’t make much, and after hosting is paid I only have a small profit. But profit is profit.
Who knows, maybe in one or two years, this site is doing 1500$ a month on sales? I have no idea what to expect…
3: The Thai lady that showed me around on shutterstock.com uploaded pictures for 3 months without making a single dollar. Then the sales, reputation and special deals started to trickle in.
As you can see. Hard work usually pays of in the end. And if you want passive income you don’t have to work for, you usually have to do the hard work first, and hopefully it pays of.
3: “That won’t work”..
Yeah. With that attitude you will never make a dime. I’m not saying that you shouldn’t be critical, but some people are too skeptical about what is possible to make money from.
You need to choose a strategy, and get busy RIGHT NOW… Everyday you postpone you give that money to someone else.
When you start doing jobs online, you come in contact with people that are “over” you in the online hierarchy. If you do a good job you will get contacts, build networks and get insight in other peoples business ideas and projects.
4: Don’t quit your job on day 1
Good. You’ve made your first dollars online. This is NOT the time to quit your job and fly to paradise. Keep working hard, expand your incomes. Make a robust system for yourself that keep sending money to your bank account.
This is also a good time to start saving some of your money from your regular job to build up a buffer.
It’s important to have a big buffer in case something should happen. Maybe you hurt yourself and something’s wrong with the insurance, maybe you get in trouble with the law and need to bribe someone. You never know what will happen in these countries they are after all third world countries.
I said to myself that I would quit my job the day I made 600$ online for three months straight. I made that goal back in 2015. I’ve been on the road since and I’ve never been more happy.
Life is short
Start NOW! Don’t waste time. If you are wasting time in front of your computer, like reading this stupid blog. Stop now and get started!!!
Life is short. I’m already 30 years old, and I’m stressing already. I want to utilize every second of this life. There is no time to loose.
When I get old and my dick don’t work anymore I want to have fond memories about all the crazy shit I did and all the tight Asian pussies I crushed.
I don’t want a single regret in my old days. So get started NOW!
Some time ago I said that I would take a break from online dating in Thailand. And I did until now. At that time I was a premium member at Thai Cupid. This time around however I bought a membership on Thai Friendly. Here is Thai Cupid VS Thai Friendly.
I’ve been using it for two weeks, and in this post I will tell you the differences so you can choose the platform that is best for you.
So.. Here we go..
Thai Cupid VS Thai Friendly
Quantity of girls
Thai Cupid have more members.
As I’m writing this (01.00 pm Thai time) there are 470 Thai girls online on Thai Friendly from all over Thailand between 20 – 25 years old. Roughly 200 of them located in Bangkok. Another 3500 girls were online within the last hour.
Thai Cupid however have over 2000 members online at the same time, and another 8000 girls were online the last hour.
Thai Cupid: 1 Thai Friendly: 0
Quality of girls
Doesn’t matter what platform you sign up for. You will find the same ratio of hot / ugly girls on both sites.
However, Thai Cupid have a bigger thumbnail for profiles both on the front page and in searches. This makes it slightly easier to see if a girl is hot or not without using time to go inside her profile.
Thai Cupid: 2 Thai Friendly: 1
Thai Cupid is a big winner here. You can filter girls on almost any variable. Age, height, BMI, Chinese sign, star sign and even their measurements + 30-40 other variables.
Thai Friendly can only filter basic stuff like age, weight, height and a few more.
But honestly, who need a massive filtering system like Thai Cupid? I’ve never used it. It will only work if the girls take the time to fill in everything, and is honest about it, something I doubt most people are.. xD
I usually only use the age and the location filters. Everything else is up for negotiation. 😀
But, if you need these filtering options and you have special needs, Thai Cupid is the winner.
Thai Cupid: 3 Thai Friendly: 1
Design and Functionality
Thai Friendly is the winner in my opinion. Thai Friendly look more ‘fun’ than Thai Cupid. It got more catchy colors and just looks better. Thai Cupid however look like a software interface for cranes… It’s really boring and dull..
Both sites are very easy to navigate and to use. However, the chat system at Thai Friendly can be very buggy at times. Sometimes when I girl write to me, I can clearly see that some of the messesage strings don’t arrive.
If you close the chat then open it again. Earlier conversation will be gone.. That irritates me.
Thai Cupid is flawless on functionality. No bugs.
Thai Friendly have a neat app for both Android and Iphone. Thai Cupid don’t have an app, but their platform look fine on a mobile browser. So you can use both apps on your phone with no problem.
Thai Friendly wins on design and Thai Cupid wins on functionality.
Thai Cupid: 4 Thai Friendly: 2
As you can see. These platforms are almost the same with only small differences.
If a lot of girls to choose from is important for you, and you don’t care so much about design, then choose Thai Cupid. I would also choose Thai Cupid if I was going to smaller places within Thailand with less people. There seems to be more people online on Thai Cupid in smaller cities. There are also better filtering options for cities at Thai Cupid.
If you care more about design, or you are only staying in the biggest cities such as Bangkok, Phuket or Chiang Mai. It doesn’t really matter what platform you choose.
I’m using Thai Friendly at the moment, and I enjoy it, as it’s nice with a change. However, I will go back to using Thai Cupid when my three months membership runs out just because it runs more smoothly and have more members.
Total Score Thai Cupid VS Thai Friendly
Thai Cupid: 4 Thai Friendly: 2
If you know you’ll sign up for Thai Cupid or Thai Friendly in near future, please consider using my affiliate links. It will not be more expensive for you. The only difference is that I get a small cut from your first membership payment.
Another day in paradise but today I had an awful day to be totally honest. Not every day here is free pussy and lazy days at the beach. 🙁
Today I was supposed to meet a hot Thai girl I met on Thai Cupid to eat dinner with. She wanted to go to a ‘special’ place so I had to jump inside a taxi to get there. Why couldn’t we just eat at Terminal 21?? It’s so fucking easy with skytrain and everything. Noo, had to go to some ‘special’ place out in nowhere.. Whatever..
I got stuck in a traffic jam, and when I finally got there I stepped in a pile of dog shit. I got that brown gunk all over my shoes and my pants. FUCK..!
I ended up flaking the girl because I could not go inside the restaurant smelling like dog shit. She was probably a gold digger anyways as she started ‘our relationship’ with demanding a special place to eat. She got kind of angry but I don’t give a shit honestly.
Here are some more stuff that really makes my head BOIL, and that you should consider before you relocate or come here long-term.
You will always be a farang
If you move to any country in Europe, learn the language, get a job and don’t make any trouble. You will be looked at as a citizen of what ever country you are staying in.
You will have the same rights and you will pay the same prices.
In Thailand that is not always true.
Some people will always look at you as a farang, or simply as a naive tourist. All they see when you come around are potential money.
I walk the streets of Bangkok and people approach me everywhere. “Sir, I have lady”, “Flee tuktuk ride with me misteeer”, “Want som gaba?”, “heeloo sexy maan”, “wheeele you go handsome?”, “want a massage?”, “Wheleee you go?”.
This shit is never-ending and at times it can be pretty annoying even tho I ignore it most of the time.
These people are not aware that I actually live here, and that I know they are full of shit. I know there no such thing as a free tuktuk ride. I’m not an idiot.
When you go to temples and attractions around Thailand you have to buy a ‘ticket’ while Thai persons stroll in for free.
If a Church or a business in the Western world charged extra because you were, lets say, black, that business would be closed down immediately and be all over the news. That shit is unheard of..
Another tiresome part of living here is that some businesses try to rip you off constantly.
I have been here for almost a year now. I know what a dish of Pad Thai costs, why are you charging me double or triple..? I’m not a rich tourist that will just stay here for 2 weeks. Give me a break. I just want to fucking eat..
And the taxis… I know that the taxis have a meter here, and I know that if the taxi use it, it will be much cheaper for me. Don’t give me that fixed price nonsense, and when I tell you to use the meter, use it, don’t give me that bullshit that it’s not working. I know your tricks..
Then you have the police. They are mostly no issue, but if you ever have a crash here in the traffic you can be sure that they would team up with the Thai person, even if it wasn’t your fault. Luckily I have a big pile of buffer cash, so if anything like that would ever happen to me I will get away from it somehow.
Good luck finding a garbage can in Thailand when you need it. So many times I have been eating street food or something from 7/11. Then I’m done with it and I want to throw it away. You start to look for a garbage can but they are nowhere to be found. There are almost no public trash cans here..
The result of this is that there is trash and food piles everywhere in the streets. The result of that again is big rats, cockroaches and flies that runs around everywhere munching on the trash.
If you dare. Throw a rock on a pile of trash and see what happens. I did that one time and two gigantic rats and 20 cockroaches escaped that munchy bag like it was doomsday.
Then you have the air pollution. Cars, old motorbikes, noisy food wagons, buses from last millennium with broken muffler, Thai guys puffing away on cigarettes, street food vendors that spew out smoke and food odor all over the place and all the trash that lies around making a terrible smell.
Breathing in all this shit is not good for your health and I’m 100% sure I will live a couple of years shorter if I stay in Thailand for the rest of my life.
Sometimes when I’m in Bangkok for too long I get a nasal congestion and I start to itch in my throat. Then I go to the beach and it opens up again immediately. Can’t be healthy.
In addition to this the air down here is to thick that you could chew it and the humidity is absolutely horrendous at times.
You can’t get away from them! Walk barefoot for ten minutes, step on some glass fragments hiding in the sand, get a cut under your foot and it’s done. The next morning you wake up your foot is twice as big and it flows green pus out of the cut. It’s disgusting.
I have lost count all the times I have been at the local clinic to clean up and remove green pus.
Bugs, snakes and reptiles
In Northern Europe we have something called winter. This winter kills most of these fuckers. So in the summer we only have a couple of flies and mosquitoes running around. No big deal!
Thailand however is hot and humid all year. There is never a long cold winter that does a restart in the bug population.
Some of the bugs I’ve seen down here are simply terrifying and a few of them look like they were designed by the fucking devil.
Walk under a tree and suddenly a big green slimy demon falls down and lands on your shoulder. Chill in a park and suddenly some weird-looking purple snake with laser eyes jumps out between some stones trying to eat your brain.
Pass out on a bench, suddenly you hear a hissing sound then you realize you have a 6 foot reptile under you that could eat a chihuahua on a good day.
I never went to school in Thailand so I have no fucking clue what bugs are poisonous or not. I freak out like a little girl every time I have a close encounter.
One time I was at Koh Chang having a foot massage. Then a big black flying monster on the size of a bird came flying in. All the local massage girls started screaming like hell and ran out of the shop with magazines over their head.
What the fuck was that.?.? I never got a good look at the horror because I did like to locals did. I panicked like a little girl and ran like crazy… 🙁
Another time I woke up in a bungalow because I felt something was tingling on my feet. I removed the blanket and a fucking cockroach was munching on my dead skin..
As I said. I never went to school here. I treat every thing that is not a fly or a mosquito as something poisonous that can kill me within 5 minutes.. Dying from a bug bite would be a fucking sad way to go… Some of these bugs looks absolutely savage.
Anyways. That is enough complaining for one day. Truth is, the positive aspects of living in Thailand is far bigger then the negatives. I love it here.
If you ever tried to get me home you would have to drag me inside an airplane while I was screaming and crying like a little bitch.
Here is some random stuff that really grind my gears down here in Thailand. This post do contain some wildly inappropriate generalizations, but I don’t give a shit honestly. Please don’t take this post too seriously. 🙂
Soo. Here we go…
1: Rude hookers
Stop asking me for lady drinks the moment you approach me. Don’t start our little friendship with ‘can I have a drink pleaaaaseee?”..
What about you start with a fucking “heeloo. Can I sit with you?”. Then you make me happy, act cute and charming and all that stuff for 5 to 10 minutes. Then we can discuss that lady drink. I’m not asking for much here..
This is how it SHOULD be: You make me happy –> I buy you a drink
This is NOT how it should be: I buy you a drink –> I hope that you will be fun
I actually blame this one on stupid farang men. Stop giving the girls a tip just because she’s hot. That’s how you breed spoiled whores who ask for money before she even did anything to make you happy.
Some loser men just give away money, and the girls have figured this out. Yaaay.. Now we have whores that nags for free money. Good fucking job congratulation..
I’ve accepted that traffic jams do happen in Thailand, but once in a while I need to rant about it. I need to get out the frustration that have accumulated over time.
This venting usually happens in a random taxi late at night in Bangkok with a random girl/hooker on the tow, and a worried taxi driver in front thinking I am about to start a riot.
If you thought the hookers in Soi Cowboy looked at you like a walking ATM machine, wait until you have visited a hospital in Thailand. They will throw an avalanche of meds on you no matter what is wrong with you.
They know that you have travel insurance and don’t give a shit about the costs. Most people will just take whatever the doctor give them and trust that it is the right decision.
I’m no doctor but I’m a big believer that the body can fix itself in most cases. No need to take a ton of meds for every condition. Some meds have serious side effects you know.. Don’t take this shit for fun..
Usually I just go to the doc to exclude serious conditions, but they always try to sell you stuff. Don’t you think the docs down here get a cut from the meds they sell? They probably do…
So.. Do they make their decision with their wallets, or with their knowlegde..? That’s up to you to decide…
I’m so tired of calling my GP doctor back home asking what pills are unnecessary to take after I get out of the hospital (usually 80-90%) of them.
4: Power cuts
This happens once a week on average, and it happens mostly at night, in rainy season, when it’s hot and humid… What sucks about this is that most AC here don’t turn back on when the power comes back, making me wake up in the morning in a lake of sweat combined with a headache from dehydration.
This is probably the most specific complaint on this list, but whatever..
There are 6.3 million people living in Bangkok. A lot of those goes through Sukhumvit station, especially in rush hours.
How many ticket machines are there? 4…….. Yes fucking four………
I’ve no idea how many times I’ve been stuck in that ticket line… Sometimes you have to wait 20 minutes to buy a 25 baht ticket. That doesn’t feel good…
6: Western women
Is it just me or do Thailand attract the most ugly fat farang females on the planet? Or is it maybe that you see them next to hot Asian women, and they simply pale (literally and metaphorically) in comparison?
I have no idea…
Why the fuck do they even come to Thailand? Spain have nice beaches too, and it’s much closer.
7: Indian tourists
These dirty motherfuckers are everywhere these days. The middle class in India is ricing, and for some reason they have to bring their entire family tree to Thailand.
Most Indians are humorless, have inflated ego’s, lack social antennas and are very rude. Very much like the Chinese guys just a million times more smelly.
One time I was walking around in Sukhumvit Soi 8 and out of nowhere a random Indian guy spat on me while he was passing in his tuktuk. I hope he crashed and died.
15% of my Google hits come from India, but I don’t give a shit. You guys need to hear it, take a fucking shower and get some basic manners…
(My Indian tailor in Sukhumvit Soi 15 is exempted from this generalization).
8: Squat toilets
One of my first memories with these toilets was my second trip to Thailand when I was in Sukhothai. I had eaten something my stomach did not appreciate and I ended up with an anal leakage that went all directions out my asshole.
I became so tired in my thighs that I eventually had to sit down. Luckily there was a plastic bucket there, so I sat on the bucket, praying that it wouldn’t crack.
9: Security checks on BTS, MRT and malls in Bangkok
If you are looking for a good joke. Watch the security guys working at the check points around in Bangkok.
I always have to open my backpack for these guys, but they never even bother to look inside. They just do a quick peep on the top item with a flashlight that’s not even turned on, but what’s hiding under the top item (like a bomb) they never check.
Not to mention the metal scanner you have to go through, the alarm goes of on every damn person passing it, but they don’t do any further investigation on anyone…
I’m sure I could bring a rocket luncher through these check points and they would not notice.
Is there something you hate about Thailand? Comment in the comment section! 😀
I have to be honest. I want a girlfriend. I miss it. I’m tired of running over new girls non-stop, sometimes several new girls a week. I need a change.
I’m tired of being a butterfly.
Right now I have 4 girls I can call at any given time to have sex with in Bangkok.
I have around 10 girls I can contact to have sex, but with some promise of something in return like a dinner or in best case just some sweet talk.
I have two big redlight districts close by, Nana Plaza and Soi Cowboy, that offer hundreds of girls every night all year for a small slump of money.
As I said in my last post. This place is really a pussy paradise and girls will jump on your dick from every direction.
But I need a break from it. I’m ready for the benefits of having a GF.
Furthermore, I’ve been working hard on my six-pack lately, so it should be no problem getting a GF.
If I had a girlfriend we would travel all around Thailand in the weekends, do fun stuff together, fuck like rabbits and perhaps have some decent conversations while we sip coconut juice at the beach.
Here are some pros of having a GF in Thailand:
1: No need to use condom. Sex feels better. MUCH better. 😀
2: Teach each other what you like to do in bed.
3: You will save 50% on rent. Hopefully.
4: You will get a bigger network of friends.
5: You don’t have to do housework, clean your clothes or cook food. Ever.
I don’t want children, get married or anything crazy like that. But I do miss having a GF. Just one smoking hot girl that I can cuddle with late at night.
In fact. I think I have found a potential GF already. Here’s why:
She’s good in bed – Her skin is smooth as silk, she has a gorgeous smile and she’s hot. Easily a 9/10. I obviously need a girl who I’m attracted to sexually, otherwise it wont work.
She takes care of her appearance, always smell good and dress properly. She’s a cool girl.
She can speak English – A lot of Thai girls suck in English. I know how to speak basic Thai, but I still need a girl who know how to speak English. If we are out eating with friends, and my girl can’t talk English, she will just sit there like a big question mark and stay passive. That would be as fun as jumping out of a building head first.
I have no problem with banging girls who can’t talk English, but I would never date them in a serious manner.
She have a good job and is educated – She have a bachelor degree, and she works for a well-known international company. She makes well over average in Thailand. That means she wont ask me for money. I don’t want to be her economical babysitter.
I don’t want a lazy Thai girl who stays home sleeping away 14 hours of the day waiting for pocket money.
She like to do housework – When she comes over to my apartment. She will lock herself into my bathroom and start clean my clothes. I’ve not asked for this. In fact. I say she don’t have to do it because I can do it myself or deliver it to laundry.
“Noo. I am women. It’s my job. Laundry service no good jing jing” she answer..
Ok ok… Relax.. I’m not complaining, I’m just saying… Whatever makes you happy sweetheart. 🙂
No girl is perfect in paradise
What I don’t like with her is that she have the most typical Thai characteristics in the book. She can be very jealous and she love to play with her phone. I don’t think it’s possible to find a girl in Thailand that doesn’t have these characteristics.
Other than that I do enjoy being with her.
Want a GF in Thailand?
I tell everyone that comes to Thailand to wait a good while before they get into any serious relationship. 99% of men that comes to Thailand are starved on sex and can’t think clear on arrival.
You don’t know anything about the culture here, so you don’t know what clues to look for if a girl is good or not. You can read up on blogs etc, but you still need some practice in the field before you start doing important life decisions like who you will date longtime / marry.
If you find a girl in the Western world that likes to party, have a couple of tattoos and smoke cigarettes. It’s no big deal. She’s probably just a regular girl who have a regular daytime job. If you find a girl in Thailand who does the same stuff there’s a good chance she’s a whore who sucks a new dick every night.
If you find a girl in the Western world that thinks you’ve been out with another girl every time you’re not together, she’s probably mentally ill. If you find a Thai girl who think’s in the same pattern it just means she’s Thai.
If you find a girlfriend too fast there is a good chance that:
She is not a she.
She is a bar girl
Just want your money (don’t they all??)
She “forget” to take the pill
All the above
Finding true love takes time. It’s not done after one week in Pattaya on your first trip to Thailand. Never get a girlfriend in Thailand before you have been here so many times that you start to get a grip for Thailand and the culture.
Thai girls who look for foreigners to exploit can see that you are a newcomer from a mile away. You light up like a lighthouse among all the regulars. Even I can spot you now because you look like this everywhere you go:
I’ve already written a ton about how you can find fuckfriends, dates or girlfriends in Thailand, what to watch out for, tips and tricks etc. Have a look around the website or click this link to see every post about dating in Thailand.
Have you ever had a girlfriend in Thailand? Tell me about your experiences in the comment field. 🙂
I see that people find my website with search terms like; “is Thailand a pussy paradise?” or “can you get unlimited pussy in Thailand?”.
I’ve been in Thailand 1.5 years now, and I spent all of 2016 in this amazing country. It’s time to give you my opinion.
So lets just cut to the core right away:
In 2016 I had sex with 65 women.
25 of these I had sex with several times.
Out of the 65 women 33 was professionals and 32 was ‘real’ girls.
In April 2016 I had sex every single day of the month.
I met 43 girls from Thai Cupid on dates. Bang rate approximately 60%.
That means I had sex with a new girl, on average every 5.6 days. On most I had sex with three different girls on the same day.
I’m not saying this to brag. I write this blog to people I have no idea who are, and you don’t know who I am. What’s the point of bragging? Who the fuck even cares what I do? I say this to answer your question.
Lets compare the amount of girls I banged in Thailand in one year, against how many girls I banged back home my entire life.
I lost my virginity when I was 15 years old. That was in 2006. From 2006 to 2015 I spent most my time home, except some short holidays here and there.
How many chicks did I bang in 9 years in my home country?
I spent 9 years banging 20 chicks. And I was lucky. I had friends who never got laid. Luckely, that life is history for me now. 🙂
It’s not about the sex, it’s about freedom.
Do you remember when you went to high school, and you were sitting in the library trying to read, then that hot girl walked past you that you had been jerking off to every night for the last 3 months?
And of course, you would never get this girl as she was together with the biggest asshole at the school. You became sexually frustrated and depressed. You could not focus on your school task.
Now imagine if you had a small blowjob bar next to the school cafeteria. As soon as you had trouble focusing you could just slip in there and get your balls dried up. You would be back to work in no-time focusing like a champion. 😀
That’s basically how Asia is for me. I don’t have to worry about sex, ever. And that’s a huuuge feeling of freedom. It’s like taking of a 20 kg backpack from your back.
I can focus on my online businesses, making money and other projects. I’ve never focused better than here in Thailand. I know that if I want the company of a lady, I’m just a quick phone-call away.
Men need sex to be happy. Men need sex to function. Men can’t just flip a switch and stop being horny. Men have it best when they have sex with hot women. If men don’t have sex available we become depressed and suffer.
You’ll find three redlight districts that are oriented for foreigners in Bangkok. All of them have a lot of the same stuff, but they also have some unique characteristics. So I will talk about all of them separately.
The action starts at 19.00 – 20.00 in all districts. Except in the beer-bars around Nana Plaza. Here the action starts from early morning.
Check map at the bottom for location of all districts.
BTW if you can’t wait until the evening then I highly recommend trying out Smooci.
Smooci is a new escort booking platform which is taking Bangkok by storm. On Smooci you can search 100s of local agencies and freelancers who are ready and waiting to come to your room.
The girls all have custom rating scores so you can sort the good from the bad, the prices are as low as I’ve ever seen for escorts, and you can get a booking confirmed with just a few clicks. And to top it off, they even give you a GPS link so you can track the girl all the way to your hotel.
Prices in Bangkok redlight districts
Beer: From 130 baht to 200 baht. Barfine: 600 baht to 1000 baht in most gogo bars. Prices on girls: This depends on a million factors, but expect to pay minimum 1500 baht short-time for a lady in Bangkok, at any time of the year.
There are also an area north of Asok, Huai Khwang where you will find a bunch of soapy massages.
Soi Cowboy is a hundred meter long road at Asok on Sukhumvit Rd. The easiest way to get here is to take the metro to Sukhumvit station or the skytrain to Asok Station.
In fact. Some of the scenes from Hangover 2 was from this street. More exact Tilac.
Best gogo-bars in soi Cowboy: Baccara, Tilac and Crazy House.
“The World’s Largest Adult Playground” – says the sign on Nana Plaza’s entrance.
Not really true as this complex fades in comparison of any given street in Pattaya.
Still, it got around 30 gogo-bars over three floors formed as a square. In the middle you will find a beer-bar that is good for people watching.
You will find Nana Plaza 1km away from Soi Cowboy in Sukhumvit Soi 4 (soi = sidestreet).
Outside Nana Plaza, in Sukhumvit Soi 4 you’ll find a handful of quite big beer bars, some are only bars while others also serve food.
Angelwitch on second floor has free pingpong shows that is actually not a scam. Nana Plaza also has quite a few ladyboy gogo-bars. You will find them on all floors on the east-side of the complex.
Hooters at the opposite side of the Nana Plaza’s entrance is a good spot for people watching.
Best gogo-bars in Nana Plaza: Rainbow 4 and London Calling.
Patpong is the oldest redlight district in Thailand.
Honestly I haven’t been here at night. I’ve heard this place is no good, and I have no reason to doubt that as I’ve been here in daytime and there is an avalanche of Thai men trying to sell you ‘amazing’ pussy.
Be careful with the pingpong offers you get here. There is a popular scam here that they will bring you to a bar, and to get out you have to pay a lot of money. People will block the entrance and try to intimidate you.
Easiest way to get here is by taking the metro to Silom station or the skytrain to Sala Deang station.
Along Ratchadaphisek Rd in the Huai Khwang area you will find a lot of soapy massage parlors. There is a big cluster of them right outside the metro station with the same name, Huai Khwang station.
The most famous soapy massage, for a long time, was Nataree Entertainment Massage. This avenue had up to hundreds of girls at prime time around 19.00, and the girls were very beautiful too.
Nataree was closed down some months ago in a big police raid. It has not opened again since. I walked past this place recently after sunset, the place was as dark as a ghost house.
Guest friendly hotels
If you are bringing girls back to your hotel from Soi Cowboy or Nana Plaza, or any other place you might find them, make sure that you have selected a guest friendly hotel, or you might be turned down in the reception when you arrive with your girl. That sucks trust me.
Most hotels are guest friendly, but there are those who are not. I made a post about guest friendly hotels in the Sukhumvit area. All hotels are close to Nana Plaza or Soi Cowboy.
It’s also worth mentioning that there is a lot of action going on in the small side streets between Soi Cowboy and Nana Plaza. You will find dirty massage parlors, freelancers, blow-job bars and much more!
Some time ago I went to Siriraj Medical Museum at Siriraj Hospital, and it was a visit of mixed feelings. It’s just something weird about watching real dead babies of your own species 10 cm away from you through crystal clear class.
Even tho this museum probably is very informative for certain type of people (nurses and doctors) it still has to be some of the most fucked up shit I’ve ever seen in a museum anywhere in the world.
The museum consist of five different parts in two different buildings.
The first building had four different sections. The first section was about birth defects, cancer, treatments and some other health topics. To be honest I didn’t totally catch the theme for this section as it seemed a little bit random.
What I did catch however was that you were greeted with 6 dead babies inside sealed glass compartments. All of them with different birth defects and with autopsy scars on their stomach. They also had Siamese twins in one of the glas compartments.
The next part was about the tsunami back in 2004. This part I actually liked a lot. It told the story about the tsunami on a timeline, and how Siriraj Hospital contributed to minimize suffering among the victims. Great informative stuff!
Next part was about diseases that are spread in food and water, and how you can make food so it’s clean and healthy to eat. There was also some stuff about different tropical diseases that have been in Thailand in the past and in the present, like malaria and kolera.
The last section was disturbing as fuck. I don’t even know how to explain it. They had two convicted rape murderer from the 1950 inside a glas cage. They were tied to the roof in the cage so they didn’t fall down.
They were also standing in metal buckets because they were leaking orange gunk (cake tins to be exact).
Disgusting as fuck, and if you went close you could feel the same stench as if you have a animal carrion close by.
But nothing could prepare me for the last building….
It’s called ‘The Anatomical Museum’, but it’s basically a warehouse filled with hundreds of dead humans, body parts and organs. Human heads, eyes, livers, hearts, dead babies, gigantic babies, everything you can imagine. Everything preserved in perfectly transparent glas compartments.
I won’t post any pictures of this place on the website, but if you want to get a taste of what you can expect in this museum, click here. It will take you to a google image search for this museum. Very graphic you are warned.
Tickets start at 200 baht for one building and 250 for both buildings.
Time to start the new year with a fresh location report straight from my new favorite island in Thailand; Koh Chang! 😀
Holy shit did I have a great time. The vibe on this island was absolutely fantastic! 😀
I spent one week here. The three first days with a hot girl from Bangkok, after that she had to go back to Bangkok to work, which gave me a great opportunity to explore the more dirty aspects of the island (hookers, dirty massages and booze 😀 ).
In fact. I’m seriously thinking about packing my shit and get my ass down to Koh Chang for a longer period. I’ve been in Bangkok way too long, and I find myself thinking more and more about the time I lived at Koh Pha Ngan. I really miss the simple life, that was after all why I moved to Thailand.
Island life in Thailand is really amazing and I think I just found my new home. I love the relaxed lifestyle and vibe.
Koh Chang explained
Where to stay at Koh Chang?
Westside of Koh Chang
This is were 99% of the stuff is going on. The entire westside is filled with resorts, bungalows, restaurants, bars and beaches in varied degree. But to be more exact:
Northwest Koh Chang
This is where you’ll find white sand beach. The beach was great, but personally I didn’t like this area of the island. It’s too crammed with resorts, bungalows, annoying beach sellers, malls and other shit. Tourism have trashed this area completely. 🙁
Not to mention that it’s extremely expensive to stay here in high season. I looked at some 4-5 stars resorts and they demanded 15.000 baht per night. Fuck that shit…
I remember I was at Koh Chang back in 2012 and this area was not nearly as developed as it is now. They’ve really raped the beauty of this once little charming town. In 2012 you could see the beach from the main road, today you can only see 2-3 floor buildings stuffed with Pizza Company’s and Family Marts. It’s really sad.
Midwest Koh Chang
I didn’t explore this area so much. Seems to be just like white sands beach, but with less development, more high-end resorts and a shittier beach. Nothing to see here.
Southwest Koh Chang
This was my favorite place on the island. It had the perfect balance between developments and nature. Not so much development that it destroyed the beautiful surroundings, but not so little that you were practically out in the jungle.
This area also had several beautiful and relaxed beaches. Nature Beach, Lonely Beach, Lisca Beach and BangBao Beach. The beaches in south also had much less beach sellers, which was nice.
If you’re into smoking weed Southwest seems to be the place too. You had Rasta beach and Rasta View. The last one a restaurant with a Rasta / Bob Marley theme. Weed was not at the meny, but it smelled weed everywhere in this area. So it can’t be hard to get. 🙂
I was also told, by several people, that police never went south of white sand beach. So it should be very safe to smoke here. 🙂
Eastside of Koh Chang
Nothing happening here. Mostly Thai people living in this area.
Southeast of Koh Chang
This is where I spent the three first night with my Bangkok girl. We spent the on a hideaway bungalow resort all the way down south on the island. This resort is not on Agoda or Booking.com. You can find it here on Google maps. It’s called Tantawan Bungalows.
1km north of Tantawan Bungalows you have Long Beach. If you really want to hide away this place is for you. The beach is about 1km long and the days we were there it was maybe 10 people on the beach.
North of Long Beach there was a small restaurant selling refreshments, coconuts and Thai food.
Available girls (3/5)
Koh Chang had a lot of cute girls around the island. This kind of surprised me because the local girl situation on most islands in Thailand is complete shit. Maybe the fact that Koh Chang is on the east side of Thailand, next to Cambodia, have something to do with it? Just a thought…
There is no secret that the longer south you go in Thailand, the uglier the local buffe becomes. 🙁
If you want to hook up with regular girls on Koh Chang. Online dating, the malls and Bang Bao pier is your best bet. There are Tesco Lotus and BigC malls all around the island. Here you can enjoy AC while you try to hit up some local cuties.
BangBao Pier is also a pretty good spot. This is a gigantic pier southwest on the island with its own marked..! The pier is about 1km long and on each side of the pier there are small houses with shops and restaurants. A lot of hot girls here. 🙂 They even have their own hospital on the pier.. Wtf…
In each town down the Westside of the island you will find bars with bargirls. The biggest bar complex is in the town of white sand beach, Had Sai Khao. Then the bar complexes get smaller and smaller the more south you go on the island. When you get all the way down to Lonely Beach, there was just one bar with bargirls…
I did see some hot girls in the bars, but it’s limited. If you’re staying at Koh Chang for more than 2 weeks you will have to use the same girls over again.
There are a lot of farang pussy on white sand beach, BangBao beach and Lonely beach. In fact, there are a ton of farang pussy everywhere on this island. Unfortunately, it seems like a lot of them are coming here with their boyfriends from back home.
Party situation (2/5)
The party situation on Koh Chang is relaxed. There are no crazy nightclubs here that are full every night of the week. The nightlife here mainly consist of small bars with a laid back vibe. Some bars will have live music x amount days of the week.
Southeast on the island reggae seems to be the main theme. I love reggae, so that doesn’t bother me.
Lonely beach seems to be the place where young tourists and backpackers gather to have beach parties. A little bit like Full Moon party at Koh Pha Ngan, but on a much smaller scale. I spent the new years eve on Lonely Beach, and it was hundreds of people there. Great fun!
Stuff to do (5/5)
Oh man. This island is epic! There is so much fun stuff to do.
Chill on the beautiful beaches, flirt with Thai girls, go on crazy motorbike adventures, explore the rain-forest and the waterfalls, go on a mountain-hike, go scuba-diving, bang some hookers, play guitar on an open scene at the reggae bars, relax, go on beach parties, get to know new people, try amazing Thai food, buy an old dirtbike for 3000 baht and fuck it up offroad, go shoot guns at the shooting range.
It’s a lot of stuff to do here. 🙂
But I’m happy with just the fact that it’s a beautiful tropical island with just enough hot Asian babes for a man to get by. 🙂
My favorite thing to do on Koh Chang however was to drive the motorbike. I even rented a 600cc sport bike for two of the days. GREAT FUN! There are a lot of fun curvy mountain roads on the islands to test your riding skills.
On the eastside of the island there are many straight roads with zero developments where you can push the throttle to max.
I met a lot of other bikers on the island, and one of the days I was following them all the way southeast on the island back to where I spent my three first days with the Bangkok girl.
Cost of Living (5/5)
Koh Chang can be very cheap and very expensive. It depends on where you stay. The most expensive area of the island is Had Sai Khao where you’ll find 5 stars resorts that goes for 15.000 baht per night in the high season. You can get a good deal if you book your hotel early from agoda.com or booking.com.
If you go more south on the island around Lonely beach or BangBao beach, you’ll find a lot of cheap bungalows with ok standard. I saw bungalows as low as 150 baht!!!
You won’t find these super cheap bungalows at agoda.com or booking.com as far as I know (correct me if I’m wrong). You’ll have to go there yourself and ask for room. The cheapest I saw was at Rasta View Bungalow for 150 baht per night, you can see location at google maps here.
Food was very cheap too. I ate most of my food in the small local Thai restaurants. I ate my usual dishes like fried rice, pad krapow and Geang Ped. I paid between 30 – 60 baht for these dishes.
I also ate a really tasty pizza at a restaurant called Sleeping Owl. See location here.
It’s completely possible to live of 400 baht per day on Koh Chang, with accommodation included. If you want motorbike make it 600 baht. That’s pretty good if you ask me. It won’t be fun to live that cheap forever, but if you are making an online business it can be a great way to save money while you work, for a while. 🙂
If you have a local girl to have fun with, you have everything you need! A place to sleep and work, a tropical island, cheap healthy food, transport and pussy.
I have nothing to say really. The only thing I would be careful with are the songthaew taxis at night. Especially when it’s raining. There are some crazy mountain roads between the towns at the island.
The worst road are between the west-side of the island and the ferries to the mainland on the east side. Consider renting a motorbike by the ferry if you want to drive that road yourself, and not in the back of a old beaten up pickup truck.
Thai people have no fucking clue about road safety. I prefer to drive myself whenever I have the opportunity.
Southeast of Thailand, Koh Chang included is the area of Thailand with the highest malaria risk. So if you are staying in a cheap bungalow you should probably buy a mosquito net.
As I said in the beginning of this post. I’m seriously thinking about moving to Koh Chang. I’ve been in the big city for too long. I’m ready to live the laid back lifestyle again with beaches and coconuts. I also miss riding bikes on a regular basis. You can’t do that in Bangkok because of all the traffic jams.
Hot season is right around the corner too, and I’m not very keen on living in Bangkok. When it’s 40 degrees celsius it really helps with an ocean and a motorbike to cool off. 🙂
My nasal congestion gets worse by the day living in Bangkok from all the pollution too. You can’t even see the sky here because of all the skyscrapers. I need a break from that. If I need to go back to Bangkok it’s only 5 hours away with bus. It’s not that bad, there is even an airport in Trat if I need to get to Bangkok fast.
I really liked Koh Chang. It had a good mix between developments and maintaining nature (except white sand beach). The local people here where really friendly, the ‘regular’ tourists stays at white sand beach and the backpackers where not as annoying as on Koh Pha Ngan. Maybe Koh Chang attracts a different type of young backpackers? I don’t know..
I also know that I will save a lot of money if I move to Koh Chang.
The only part that makes me skeptical about living on Koh Chang is the rainy season. I’ve heard it’s really really bad, with the most rainy days in all of Thailand. I can believe that because when I was driving my motorbike around the island a lot of the roads where broken or limited because of flash floods or heavy rain.
Rainy seasons is still 5 months ahead in time, so I should not worry about that right now. 🙂
If you want to be a butterfly and go nuts with a new girl every night. Forget about this island. The island is just too small, and the population is to low. A key to being a successful butterfly is staying low. As soon as a local girl on this island start to date a farang, I’m sure the entire island knows it in two days. Be careful.

Have you been at Koh Chang? What did you like about the place? Tell me in the comment section.
Just a quick tip on how you can get simple and discreet notifications from your favorite blogs directly to your internet browser.
I’m using Google Chrome, so this tip will be for people out there who use that platform, but I’m sure there are similar solutions for Firefox and Opera users.
I’m using something called RSS Feed Reader. You can download that extension to Chrome here from Google’s app store.
When you have installed the extension it will end up in the upper-right corner of Google Chrome. Click it and push the button with the plus symbol.
The program will ask you to add a feed link. What is a feed link?
It’s simply the domain with /feed at the end, so for Goodbye Boring Life it would be:
This format work for every blog out there who use WordPress as platform (99% of them :P). So you simply write:
When you have added your favorite blogs, and they come out with a new post, you will see a small discreet number on the extension icon in the upper-right corner. This number represent how many new blog posts since last time you clicked the icon. 🙂
You will never miss a blog post again from your favorite blogs, and you don’t have to check all your blogs for updates every single day. 🙂
Just want to say happynew year to all my readers out there. 😀 I write this post now because tomorrow I’ll head to Koh Chang and stay there until 3rd of January. I wont bring my laptop. I will spend those days just relaxing. Sometimes you need a break fromt the online world.
In fact, I will go to Koh Chang with a really hot chick that I met some time ago. I’m thinking about starting a relationship with her. She is gorgeous, hot, smart and awesome in bed. It will be really awesome to spend some time with her on that island while we explore it with motorbike. 🙂
Thank you to all the people who have read my blog this year, to all the people who comment in the comment section, the hate comments, the questions and everything else. I appreciate all of it. 😀
2016 is history. It’s been the best year ever in my life, and the first year I’ve been abroad all year! 😀
It’s been a good year, and I can live this lifestyle now while I save money for the future. What more can I ask for..?? 😀
What’s the plan for 2016?
I have big plans for this website in 2017. Early in 2017 I’ll go on a train trip up Isaan (north-east Thailand). The only region of Thailand I haven’t been to yet. You can expect a lot of nightlife guides from this area.
I will also introduce something called sneakpeaks. It will be a short post about a place I’ve been some days, but not so long that I can write a full location report.
I will also start to post more on my YouTube Channel. I love to watch videos on YouTube, and I think I have a lot to contribute to there. So make sure you subscribe to my channel.
Okay guys so now I ask you. What do you want to see on this website in 2017? Do you want more guides? More crazy stories? Do you want more guest-posts? More videos? More pictures?
I will do a lot of travel early next year. So expect a lot of guides and information. However. I also have some great stories on the shelf for you if you want that.
It’s really up to you guys. What do you want to see more of on this website?
Last night however, I found a burger that beat the Firehouse burger by a million miles. It’s simply the best burger I’ve eaten, ever. And it only costs 200 baht.
I’ve never eaten a burger with so many flavors and aromas packed into it. I ate the cowboy burger last night with barbecue sauce, grilled onions, jalapenos, cheese and double bacon, but they also have a lot of other burgers to choose from.
You can choose if you want beef or pork burger. I went for the beef burger. It’s the same price.
In had sky-high expectations for this burger as the guy I was going there with had been talking about this burger all fucking day about how amazing it was, and it still didn’t disappoint me.
It’s called the Daniel Thaiger burger. You can find location of this place here on Google maps, and their Facebook page here.
UPDATE: Daniel Thaiger have opened a second restaurant now in Sukhumvit soi 11 just outside Levels nightclub.
Just a quick tip on where you can find really cheap (and clean) food at Asok in Bangkok. An area that is usually a lot more expensive than other parts of Bangkok.
Most of the dishes here will set you back anything from 30 to 80 baht. Water costs 15 baht and soda water 20 baht if I remember correct. You can get the same dishes in Terminal 21 or Central World, but there it will be 4-5 times more expensive.
You can also get these dishes in the street kitchens, but I don’t like to eat there too much. It’s noisy, dusty and hot.
Anyways. The place I’m talking about is called Tops Marked & food court. It’s a grocery store and a food court combined. It’s kind of hard to explain where this place is, so I made a video to show how to get there together with some shots of what kind of food you can get there.
It’s basically Thai food, Vietnamese food, Chinese food and Isaan food. The food is made in a clean environment and you can enjoy AC while you eat.
In fact. These food courts can be found all over Bangkok if you just know how they look. Look for the Tops Marked logo, and there will probably be a Tops Marked food court nearby too. :=)
The go-go bars in Thailand can be a real fucking blast! If you are looking for hot girls to drag back to your hotel then go-go bars would be my first choice. Some go-go bars really know what girls to employ so they can make you happy.
That said, nothing is perfect, and there are a few things that really grind my gears about them. Here are three of them.
1: Intrusive staff
This is the absolute worst. Sometimes mamasan will come over demanding me to take a girl..
“You want this girl, that girl, or this one??? You must choose one!”….
No, I don’t have to choose a girl you piece of shit. I’m here to relax and have a great time with my fucking beer. If I don’t want a girl, I don’t want it. There was no sign outside the bar warning me that I had to take a girl, so fuck off.
Nothing is worse in the go-go bars than to have an old 40-year-old rude skunk telling you what to do. If this happens I usually drink up my beer, pay and leave. This is the only way they will change. Don’t accept shitty behavior like that.
In fact, that is the only reason why they behave like that. Some loser farang will give in and pick a girl. And he will probably end up with a shitty girl who asks for a lady drink every 10 seconds. Which brings me to my next point…
Demanding bar girls..
Yeah. I get it that you are trying to make money, and I understand that you want to make as much money as possible too. Everyone wants more money.
However, your primary job is to entertain me. Asking for a ladydrink every 10 second is not entertaining, it’s nagging. Therefore, you failed your job and I won’t buy a single drink to you.
I don’t ask my readers for 10 dollars to access this website. I let my readers read first for free, and if they want to support me by buying me a beer (ladydrink hihi), or buy a Thai Cupid membership, that’s fantastic. But I wont beg for it…
2: Music is too loud
Why the fuck do they have to play the music so loud? I literally have to yell people in the ear so they can hear what I’m saying.
I want to vet my girl before I bring her back to the hotel. I want to find out what she’s about, maximizing my odds to pick a girl that will actually give me a good time. A hot girl is not enough for me. I want a hot girl with good attitude if you know what I mean..
The volume in the go-go bars makes this almost impossible. I have to yell people in the ear, and other people have to yell me in the ear. Thai people’s English skills doesn’t exactly make the communication any better either..
I think go-go bars in Thailand only employ DJ’s that are deaf, or they have become deaf after playing too loud music for years. What’s the fucking point?
I kind of get this one from a business perspective. Pretty girls at the outside will attract more people inside. Totally get it.
If the girl on the outside has a number-tag on her hip or shoulder, you can usually ask the staff when you get inside for that girl, and they will bring her in.
However, it’s so disappointing when two pretty girls drag you into the bar, and as soon as you sit down they disappear like a fart in the wind. Then you realize there are only skunks on the stage, and you can’t leave because you are waiting for your beer…
If you are even more lucky you will have an obese mamasan over you nagging about drinks and girls.
Never sit down to order before you have taken a good look at the girls on the stage. I usually tell the staff that I have to go to the toilet first. That way they can’t hang over me like a hawk. When I get out of the toilet the staff will most likely leave me alone, giving me time and peace to take a good look at the girls on the stage.
If there are no hot girls I’ll go straight out of the bar and try the next one. 🙂
There you have it. Three reasons why I don’t like the go-go bars in Thailand. All three reasons can be dealt with if you know what you are doing. So it’s not really that bad, ey? 😀
I hate to spend money on accommodation. Every time I push the confirm button on Agoda I feel like I threw money down the drain.
Chances are, if you are a regular Joe with a limited budget, accommodation will be your biggest expense when you travel. If you can trim this expense, you can save a lot of money that can be spent on more fun stuff. Like hookers, booze and Nutella pancakes. (You’re going to Pattaya, just admit it…)
So. You want to have a lot of fun, and you want to do all that fun stuff while living in a decent hotel that don’t have cockroaches running around on the floor. You want to be close to the action, but not so close that you can’t sleep from all the noise.
You want to have Walking Street, Soi 6, Soi Diana, LK Metro and Beach Rd close by.
Where should you stay?
No one above, no one beside.
This hotel is awesome. In fact. Tell me one hotel in the entire world where you can get more for you money. I don’t think you will find it.
This hotel have two swimming pools, it have a fitness area, two restaurants, very nice staff, in-room dining, big and clean rooms, tv, rainfall showers, and minisafe.
The hotel is in the middle of walking street, Beach Rd, Soi 6 and LK metro. Just outside the hotel you have a big are with tons of beer-bars filled with hot Asian girls waiting for you.
The hotel is guest friendly. Check map under to see where the hotel is compared to everything else.
Price: Usually between 1000 – 2000 baht per night. Depending on season. If you book this hotel early at Agoda you can get it at a very good price.
Yes you will. But do you really want to stay in a shabby hotel for a very low price?
Maybe the hotel is noisy? Maybe it smells? Maybe the beds are Thai style (hard as concrete)?
I know that when I go to Pattaya, I want to have fun. If I have a shitty hotel room that smells like piss and where the AC sounds like a vacuum cleaner, I’m not going to have fun. Not the bar-girl that I’m with either.
A reader asked me some days ago how he could start learning Thai, if it was hard and how long it would take him to be fluent.
First. I just want to say that I’m by no means fluent in Thai.
In fact, I kind of suck.
I know the basics, but I don’t understand shit if the person talks fast, if there is noise in the background or if someone talks about more advanced topics.
I can say hello, have basic everyday conversations, order food, talk about the weather and I know how to ask a girl to suck my dick. I know how to get by in life. 😀
Second. Yes, learning Thai is hard. Thai is a tonal language. That means that almost every word have 4-5 different meanings, depending on the tone. And to make it even harder, they have a different alphabet.
Third. I have no idea how long it would take to be fluent. I think that very few foreigners can be fluent in this language, unless you have some serious talent for language.
I’m 28 years old now, I’ve known English since I was ten, but I still have a foreign accent when I talk.
When that is out-of-the-way.. 😀
Learning Thai is fun, and you don’t need to be fluent. Knowing the basics will get you a long way. 😀 The kind of reaction you get from Thai people when you try to speak Thai is priceless.
“Oh my Goood. You speak Thai veeelyyy gooooood. Why you speak Thaaai. You have girlfriend Thai?”
In fact. Asking girls to learn me Thai is one of my most successful ways to ask a girl out. Even on Thai Cupid I say in my profile that I’m interested in learning Thai. Not a day passes without some Thai chick telling me she can be my teacher! 😀
How to start learning Thai
Manee Mana are 12 books that were used in Thai school in the past. They are not in use anymore, but are available online for free at this link.
I used these books to learn the alphabet, basic words and basic conversations. I sat down with the books, while I had different girls from Thai Cupid correcting me while I read over Skype.
This books do requires that you know the Thai alphabet. Everything is written in the Thai Alphabet. The best way to learn the alphabet is to spend one week drilling all day. That’s what I did.
Thai For Beginners by Benjawan Poomsan Becker
If you don’t want to read Manee Mana while a Thai girl corrects you over Skype, your next best shot is this book. It comes with a CD that you can follow so you get the correct pronunciation.
Thai With Mod
Mod is a Thai girl who is running a YouTube Channel. Not only is she a good teacher, but she’s hot as fuck too.
Personally I don’t like video format when I’m learning Thai. I think it’s tiresome to go back and forth in the video. Much easier to just have a book, and read with a girl that you have on video call. But that is just my opinion.
As soon as you’ve gotten the basics down, you have to go out in the field testing your new skills!
Bar-girls are an excellent partner to talk with. Their job is to entertain the customers. As long as you give her a little tip, or you keep buying her lady drinks, she will be more than happy to talk with you.
I always wear a small notebook. In this book I write down 5-10 new words everyday that I pick up here and there. When the night comes I’m about to sleep, I will go through the words and memorize them, in the morning I will go over the same words one more time.
Okay guys. That’s it for this time. I am working on some really big posts at the moment, but they take time to make. But they will be ready at any time. 😀
High season is just around the corner, and in a couple of weeks we will start to see the bars, beaches and the streets of Pattaya fill up with horny gentlemen from all over the world. Good times, good times will come! 😀
Unfortunately, when demand goes up, prices goes up, up ad UP! Fuck man, that is life….. 🙁
If you’re on a tight budget, don’t worry. I will do whatever I can to help out a fellow monger!
The cheapest sex in Pattaya
If you are looking for sex, expect to pay 1000 baht a pop. You can find sex cheaper than this, but it would probably be an old beaten up skunk with a ton of make-up and stretch marks everywhere. Not my idea of fun.
The blow job bars
Okay. I think the blow-job bars offer great value. You won’t get sex, but blow-jobs.
Dont be depressed yet. These girls really know how to suck cock. If a girls really know what she’s doing, I think it’s even better than regular vaginal sex with condom.
If you’re not picky on looks, you can take an old lady that have been doing this job the last 20 years. She knows her stuff and will drain your balls like no other girl have ever done before. Trust me on this guys!
Or you can choose a petite little shy newcomer and cum all over her pretty little face while she has a panic attack. It’s really up to you. 😀
I’ve already covered where you can find blow-job bars in Pattaya in this post. So check it out for more information. Expect to pay anything between 700 to 1000 baht for a blow job.
If blow jobs is not enough for you, and you want hot wild sex with a lady all night long in your hotel bed. Then your next best shot is the freelancers.
Freelancers at Beach Rd
Just because a girl is a freelancer, doesn’t mean that she’s a toothless old skunk with HIV and a missing leg. Some girls just prefer to work on their own. They have complete ownership over their own income, and they can choose when they want to work. Some girls just prefer that style.
They don’t want to sit in a bar all night long pushing people to buy drinks, or dance on a scene for 6 hours in a Gogo bar.
You can find freelancers all over Beach Rd that goes along, you guessed it, the beach! 😀
It’s literally hundreds, if not maybe thousands of girls on this street every night waiting for customers. Just walk up and down Beach Rd while you look at the buffet, until you find a girl that you want to drain your balls in.
Negotiation is possible, but don’t be to aggressiv. What I usually do is to tell the girl that I will give her what she want, if she does an outstanding job. If not, I will give her 300-500 baht less.
Caution with freelancers
If you take a freelancer, you have to bring her back to your hotel (Unless you take her It have happened that freelancers have stolen stuff from their customers. This is how you avoid that:
Make the girl shower first. When she is done, make her leave her clothes and purse at the bathroom while you take a shower. If she want to steal your stuff. She will have to run out of the hotel naked in a towel.
Put all your cash and credit cards in the safe, or bring it with you when you take a shower.
Girls that drug down their customers
I think this is mostly an urban myth. I’ve never heard about anyone, or talked with a anyone that have been drugged down by a hooker in Thailand. I’ve only read stories about it on strange places on the Internet.
I would not worry to much about this.
Watch out for bad behavior
Some girls that works as freelancers do so because they got kicked out or their bar from bad behavior. Some have also caught serious diseases like HIV or Hepatitis. Always use condom with these girls.
To avoid a freelancer with bad behavior, build report with the girl. Talk with her for 10-15 minutes before you decide to take her back. That way you have a feel for how she is. You could even bring her for some food. Thai girls love to eat, as long as you pay she won’t say no, and you have more time to build report. 🙂
Freelancers in nightclubs
The nightclubs in Walking Street is filled with freelancers, especially after midnight. You are probably more likely to find a girl here that is up for some serious fun. They have already been drinking and have loosen up much more than the girls that are just standing around in the streets.
Insomnia and Ibar have freelancers all over the dance-floor, and around the bar, after midnight.
Negotiation is possible, and if the girl really likes you she might even go with you for free. If she went there with a friend. Well.. Maybe you are about to try your first threesome? 😀 😀
Expect to pay 1000 – 1500 for a freelancer in the nightclubs short time, and 1500+ for long-time.
Happy ending massage in Pattaya
There is not a street in Pattaya that doesn’t have a massage shop. They are literally everywhere, and all of them offer happy endings. I’ve been doing this game so long now. I just take the oldest and fattest lady I can find.
They have been doing this job for decades. They know how to massage you, they have strong hands, trust me, these women will dismantle you with their hands. At the end I let them suck me off, I don’t even care how they look. I just close my eyes and enjoy the sensations. These old women know how to suck out every single sperm-cell in your ball sack.
Expect to pay around 300 baht for 1 hour massage, and anything from 500 baht to 1000 baht for the blowjob, depending on how hot the girl is. 🙂
One blowjob in Pattaya will set you back minimum 700 baht. A one month membership at Thai Cupid will set you back around the same amount (20 dollar). With that tool you have access to hundred of thousands of girls that are eager to met foreigners.
Thai men are already womanizers and will hit on Thai women in everyday situations, so you know that if a Thai girl is on a dating site, she’s there to meet foreigners.
Signing up for a dating site is really a no-brainer before you go to Thailand. Read more here.
So. This is my best tips for finding cheap sex in Pattaya for those who are on a budget. Go out and have some fun! 😀
Of course, the hottest girls are in the gogo-bars. But I think the prices are outrageous, and a lot of the hot girls in the gogo’s get so much attention that they have become spoiled shit kids. It’s not fun to be with them.
And in the end it’s going to cost you 3000+ baht when you have paid for barfine, the girls, your drinks and her lady drinks. For that price she should treat you like a fucking sultan, but she won’t because she’s a spoiled brat.
It’s much better to find a cute freelancer in the street, or at a nightclub, party and have fun with her all night, and bring her back to your hotel 4 in the morning for the finale. If you are on a tight time-schedule, just go to a blow-job bar and get your balls drained in 15 minutes.
Let’s talk about the hardest part of a Thailand vacation; Going home. 🙁
In my country we have our own expression for this condition. In Norwegian it’s called “Thailand syken” and can be best translated as “The Thailand Fever”.
It basically means that you had the greatest three weeks of your entire life, but now it’s over.
You are back in your boring hometown where nothing ever happens. Thinking back on what you just experienced.
You lived like a rock star, you drilled more pussy in three weeks then you did in your entire life back home, girls jumped on your dick from all corners, you ate the most amazing and tasty Thai food for almost free, explored the most amazing beaches and experienced the friendliness of the Thai people.
It was always something fun to do or to explore every day. Always something happening, or something new to experience.
You had the ride of you life, but now you are back in this street:
Thinking back to this shit:
There is nothing to do. The weather is cold and windy. The people are miserable. The women are not smiling, and they suddenly became much more masculine after your first Thailand trip. In fact, you don’t even find them slightly attractive anymore…
The food is boring and overpriced. It’s hard to get places. It’s too much regulations.
There’s nothing to do.
Then you realize it.
You have no opportunity to go back to Thailand until one full year have passed. You have to stay in your shitty little hometown an entire year before you can go back to paradise. Your only income is your shitty job that you have started to hate, and you’re full of dept.
Congratulations, the depression and feeling of hopelessness is real.
Welcome to “The Thailand Fever” club. 🙂
The next year you will constantly think about Thailand. It will always be on your mind. From now on, everything that you do, you will compare to Thailand.
Your friends will think you are crazy because you talk about Thailand nonstop.
You try to tell your friends how good it was, but they don’t really understand or believe it, because the only way to understand is to experience it.
You will look for cheap flight tickets everyday before you go to sleep.
You will start to hang out on Thai forums and Thai groups on Facebook.
How to deal with The Thailand Fever
To be honest with you. I have no fucking clue on how to deal with it 100%. I was depressed almost 24/7 between my Thailand vacations. That’s why I did something about my situation and moved to Thailand.
My best advice is to just be strong, but I know that is a terrible advice lol…
One day you will be back in paradise. Keep in touch with people that you met on your trip. Join Facebook groups about Thailand, where you can talk with like-minded that understand your longing.
Find out where you can get Thai food in your city, and where all the Thai massage shops are.
If your situation becomes unbearable, you can always get some relieve in a Thai massage shop, or eat some Thai food while you hear the employees talk Thai in the background. Close your eyes and pretend that you are on a beach in Thailand.
I used to eat Thai food at a restaurant in Oslo, in the next building there was a Thai massage place that did happy endings. The girls there would suck me off after 1 hour massage. It was not optimal, but it sure took the edge of when I missed Thailand the most.
I also came in contact with a young Thai girl (20 years old) at one of these massage spots in Oslo. We ended up being fuckfriends for almost 8 months. That helped A LOT!!!!
Go to YouTube and look for fun videos from Pattaya, Bangkok and Phuket. A lot of people upload new videos almost daily. There are also a million blogs out there, like this one, that writes about life in Thailand.
Sign up for Thai Cupid or Thai Friendly. Here you can contact and get to know a million different Thai girls that you can talk with at Skype or Line when the winter kick in. That always helps!
Just remember that one day you will be back in Paradise, and you will be living like a rockstar again, drilling tight Asian pussy from every corner all day long! 😀 😀
In fact, I think that living this lifestyle 24/7, like I’ve been doing the last year, is not really healthy. I don’t even flinch when I see three naked girls dancing on a pole anymore. It’s become so normal for me.
I don’t even notice the freelancers at Sukhumvit anymore when they offer sex, I walk past them like they don’t even exist… Is that healthy??? I don’t know…
Some weeks ago I decided to stop using tobacco. 6 weeks have passed and I haven’t touched it since. No tobacco, no nicotine-gum, no nicotine-plaster, no e-cigarette, no-nothing.
I’ve inhaled zero nicotine. Have I been clear enough? 😀
In this post I will tell you how I did it. Lets start!
How I quit smoking
What was my motivation to quit smoking?
I felt like a fucking bitch to the cigarette. I was tired of the addiction. I was tired of sucking on that cancer-stick 10-15 times a day. For no good reason other than a temporary good feeling.
I hated the fact that every time I was out flying, I stressed with getting one last cigarette before I entered the airport. When I was in the air, I was eager to land fast so I could smoke another cigarette. Long-distance flights was hell.
The cigarettes had me by the balls, and I was sick of that.
Preparations – None. I didn’t even set a date to quit. The reason was that I didn’t want to make any tension or anxiety the days before the ‘quit-date’.
What I did instead was to just decided that I would quit on a random day in the near future, and I would do it on a day I felt it was right to quit.
Quit-day – I woke up. I started my day with my regular coffee and tobacco. This day the tobacco didn’t taste as good as usual. I don’t know why.
It continued like this the rest of the day, so I decided that when I woke up the next day. I was done with this nonsense for good.
The three first days – These days were the worst. It was a mix of a lot of different feelings, combined with bodily reactions like sweating, freezing, dizziness, head-aches, feeling of emptiness +++.
The first three days I did nothing. I was in my bed all day, just going outside to 7/11 when I needed something to eat. It was a absolute nightmare. I also did have some episodes of rage, so I didn’t want to be with other human beings. I just lay in my bed all day long doing nothing, lol. 😛
The nicotine cravings was absolute savage at times.
The first 3 weeks – After the first three days, some of the bodily symptoms started to settle. The nicotine cravings became less and less common, and they were not as strong.
I had a really hard time concentrated in this period, that’s why I did not update this webpage for an eternity. Sorry guys. 🙁
After the first three weeks the bodily reactions was mostly gone. The cravings continued, but they were manageable.
Today – To be honest. I don’t think much about that habit anymore. It’s crazy. The first weeks were hard and uphill, but as soon I got at the top of that uphill, it was actually no problem at all.
I still have some cravings after I eat dinner, or if I start to stress, but I can deal with them, and they only last for a couple of minutes anyways.
Other tactics that I used
Some weeks before I quit, I changed brand to something I didn’t like.
Quit cold turkey
I think cold turkey is the only way to do it. Think about it. You want to get rid of your nicotine addiction. How can you get rid of that if you continue to use some sort of nicotine, like gum or plasters? You are only teasing yourself.
I rather feel like really shit for some weeks, then be over it, than to cut down regularly feeling constantly hungry for nicotine for an eternity. But that is just me. You have to find out what’s right for you.
Be prepared to feel like shit
There is no way around it. If you want to quit nicotine. You will feel like shit for some time. It’s been two months for me now, and I still have cravings. However, they are not as strong as they were before, and they come around less and less.
Another day in paradise. Today I will talk a little bit about online dating.
The last week I’ve been absolute savage on Thai Cupid. My one-year membership runs out in just a couple of days. I had to get some more contacts before I can’t talk with girls anymore. 🙁
As I’m writing this I have 19 new girls in my Line application and I’ve talked with 40-50 girls the last two weeks. 😀 😀
I’m planning to take a break from Thai Cupid when the membership runs out. There are several reasons for that:
I want to save the money
I live in Thailand. I’m surrounded by Thai girls 24/7. Don’t really need it.
I will focus on work for a period.
I already have a ton of girls available down here, and I’m thinking about getting a girlfriend.
Just to make it clear, I’m not taking a break because I don’t think the dating sites aren’t good anymore. They absolutely are.
In fact. They are too good. I get in touch with so many girls there that I can’t get anything done. It slows down my productivity a lot. Lets say I sit on my computer doing some work, then I get a new mail that a girl have contacted me on Thai Cupid.
I get distracted, and I work much slower.
I’m not saying this to brag or anything. I’m just telling you about my reality down here.
In fact, that’s why I’m taking a break. I’m planning to do some weeks with really intense working. I’m not going to do anything else than to expand my online earnings. I will do a lot more translating (my main income), try to get more customers to translate for and I’ll expand this site.
Here are my goals for the next weeks:
Less dating, keep the girls I already have for fast shags.
Work out more
Need something new
When I’m ready to start dating online again I think I’ll switch dating platform.
I’ve been member on Thai Friendly before, and I’m thinking about switching back to that. I’ve been on Thai Cupid for a year now. I need a change (no hate on Thai Cupid).
I’ve mentioned this a couple of times already on this webpage. Learning Thai will get you so much more attention from the girls. They will really admire you if you can pull of some Thai.
You will get so much more respect.
You don’t need to learn Thai fluent. Just the act of writing in your online profile that you are interested in learning Thai will improve your game drastically. Not a day goes by without some girl telling me she can teach me Thai.
If you are interested in learning Thai. I recommend that you check out the old Manee Mana books. They were used in school in Thailand in the 80’s and 90’s.
They start of very simple, then it gets more and more advanced. You will need to know the Thai alphabet for this book in advance. Don’t be put off by that. It took me about 10 hours of drilling over 3-4 days to learn all the letters. 🙂
A hot girl from Chiang Mai learned me the Thai alphabet. I lay in her bed while she read up the letters from a whiteboard in her living-room. If I learned too slow she would spank me on my ass. Good times. 😀
Everyone that reads my website regularly knows how much I love online dating.
Internet is truly a gift for humanity. You can stay in your bed while talk with hot girls from all over the world, then you can meet up with them later and fuck them.
It’s truly a wonderful time we are living in. 🙂
If you are going to Phnom Phen or Siem Reap to see Angkor Wat it can be nice to have a local girl showing you around. They know where the good food is, they know how to get from A to B, they will keep you away from scams and probably provide you with free pussy. 😀
Another good thing with online dating is that you know the girls there are looking for farang. 🙂 No need to waste your time on girls that have no interest in white men.
Hook up with beautiful Khmer girls here
There are not dating site that are made specific for Khmer girls, like for example Thai Cupid. But you can use Asian Dating. They have girls from all over Asia, so you can sort for Cambodia, and get girls from that region.
Sorry for not updating the website in a while. I’m still alive. 🙂
The thing is. I’m quitting tobacco cold turkey.
It’s a fucking pain in the ass, and I have zero concentration abilities. Just writing this post take a real effort mentally. Yes I know I’m a fucking pussy. I don’t give a shit.
I’ve never tried to stop smoking before. I’ve been off for 6 days and it’s on its peak when it comes to cravings and shit like that.
In fact. This was not planned at all. It just woke up on Monday and said to myself: “fuck this shit”….
Here is my tactics so far…
1: Stop being a fucking pussy
Yes, stop smoking will be painful. I will have cravings, I will have headaches, I will be irritated as fuck (and I am) and I will feel like shit.
I’ve been going 6 days, and now it’s supposed to be at the worst, but its far from unbearable. If I can just keep going 6 more days, the symptoms will start to decrease, and I’m pretty sure I’ll be fine.
I’ve mostly been inside my apartment in Bangkok. Not been doing anything… Only been in front of my computer watching YouTube. 😛
I will take it easy for the first 10 days. After that I will start to live more normal again.
2: Some more steps
I’ve been easy on heavy meals. When I eat big meals the cravings gets crazy, so I try to avoid it.
So I eat small meals, and I also try to avoid meat, so the cravings get as small as possible.
I’m using NO aids.
No nicotine gum, no plaster or any shit like that. Why would anyone use that shit? If you want to get rid of an addiction, you can’t continue taking what you’re addicted too. That makes no sense…
It’s not like nicotine withdrawals are deadly or anything, so why would you quit ‘slowly’?? Just sound like an excuse to not quit if you ask me…
I just broke my two month celibacy on hookers down here in Thailand. I’ve not fucked a hooker since July. There are two reasons for this:
I’ve been working like a slave on my computer. I almost haven’t been outside. 🙁
I’m trying to save money. Fucking sluts is not cheap when you have an online income that would put you below the poverty line in most Western countries.
Anyways. This week I met up with a friend from Europe that is in Pattaya at the moment. We took a trip to Soi 6, and the rest is history as they say.
Here are some great reasons to bang hookers. 😀
Fucking sluts is a HUUUGE time saver. No need to listen to girls’ bullshit for hours before she allows you to rip her pussy apart.
Chasing girls are of course fun, but sometimes you just don’t have time for that activity, but you still need to relieve some pressure. That’s when hookers comes in handy. 😀
Just walk inside your favorite gogo-bar, pick the hottest girl from the shelf, do what you need, and pay her to leave!
You balls are empty, her wallet is full and everyone is happy. 😀
2: Hookers will cure your shyness
My number one dating tip for shy guys is:
Go to Pattaya for a week and go nuts with the hookers around town. If you are shy around girls something tells me that you are intimidated by them. If you are intimidated by girls you have probably not spent much time around them, right?
Hookers can solve that for you. You don’t have to worry about rejection, so you can just focus on being comfortable around them.
When you start to be comfortable, you can slowly start to challenge your comfort-zone and approach ‘real’ girls.
In time you will learn to not give a fuck and become more confident, which will get you more women, which will make you even more confident.
In the end you’ll brush of a rejection like it’s a light summer breeze. You know you just have to approach a couple of more girls, and the deal is set.
I don’t give a shit anymore. My urge for pussy far outweighs my approach anxiety. If I see a hot girl that I like I will make sure she knows I’m interested.
Another fun-fact about this. Whenever I have fucked a girl, other girls seems to be much more interested in me. I think this is because I’m not needy at all when I talk with them. I probably send out a completely different vibe, unconsciously, when I just got laid. That girls pick up, also unconsciously.
This was just as true back home too. Whenever I had a girlfriend, or a fuckfriend available, it was much easier to get laid with new girls.
3: It’s fun!
I think dating girls are fun too, but sometimes you meet that insane bitch who makes you bend over in awe. But that is a story for another time.
Most girls are just a little bit crazy, and you get tired of all the mundane, but never ending bullshit. That’s a good time to take a break from dating, and jump on the monger train for some weeks with shallow, easy and quick sex.
Just to get your motivation back. 🙂
Luckily I’m in Asia, and the girls here usually shut up if they don’t have anything sensible or important to say. They are not in that constant “me me me me me” modus, yet.
Silence is gold.
4: Realize your wildest fantasies.
Threesomes, group-sex, rape-play, BDSM, spanking, caning, role-play, foot fetish, submission, anal-sex, costumes +++. The list goes on forever…
Sure, you can meet a cool and kinky girl. But the truth is that they are few and far between.
A lot of people have huge barriers when it comes to sex. It can be because of religion, a pride issue or just because they don’t like it.
So then we are back to my first point about time. How much time should you spend on finding a girl that want to try group sex, or let you dominate her? How much time do you have to look that in the first place? Probably not too much if you are an average slave feeding the system back home with a couple of weeks vacation each year.
Paying a professional is a great way to live out your wildest fantasies.
5: Men need sex, women don’t.
The majority of men need sex to be happy. The majority of women don’t need sex to be happy. That’s a huge problem. Don’t believe me?
If both sexes were equal crazy after sex there would be no such thing as female hookers. Everyone would just be fucking all day long. Nothing would ever be done.
Men have an unstoppable urge for sex. We can’t just turn a switch off mentally and stop thinking about it like women can.
A women can decide in the middle of a sex act that she don’t want sex anymore. You could show me a picture of your dead mother when we have sex, and I would say: “We have to talk about that.. LATER…”.
6: It will make you focus
Sometimes when I work, I will start to think about sex. It’s a fucking curse, and the remedy is the local blow-job bar.
Yeah, I have a lot of fuckfriends and girls I’m dating down here. But it’s rare that one of my ‘real’ girls can show up in 20 minutes to suck me off, just to kick them out again so I can continue to work.
They would never accept that treatment. I would have to have some bullshit conversation with them pre-sex, cuddle, watch a movie, make som food, or just something.
If I’m working on a big project, I don’t have time for that shit.
If there were are blow-job bar in every city, the world would be a much better place.
There might come a time in your life where you ended up at Koh Pha Ngan, and were in desperate need of a Koh Pha Ngan nightlife guide.
I’m here to help you. 😀
In this post I will cover:
Beer-bars with working girls
Stuff that happens outside the big events
Happy Ending Massage
Most of the action is going on south-east on the island, in Haad Rin. There are some small bars and restaurants in north too at the beaches, but it’s very calm as it’s mostly families there on charter-trips.
At the bottom of this post you’ll find a map of everything I’ve been talking about in this post.
First. Let’s start with the two parties that ‘everyone’ comes to this island for. I think you already know the answer.
Full Moon Party
Personally I don’t like this party. I like the idea of it, but in reality it’s a clusterfuck of all the people on this planet I hate. Backpackers, young precocious snotty kids, forty-year olds that never grew up (in a bad way), Thai thugs looking for trouble, and that idiot who is looking for his friend.
Mix that with sky-high blood alcohol levels, other brain-dead drugs and multiply it with 40.000.
There you have full moon party. It was fun once, but I will probably never attend again.
A lot of the people here don’t even seem to enjoy the party. It seems like they’re here just to take pictures, so they can put it on Instagram to show of how cool they are to friends back home.
Anyways, enough ranting.
This party takes place one time each month, when it’s full-moon duuuh, and it’s happening on the Haad Rin beach southeast on the Island.
Check map below.
Cover: None Buckets: I honestly don’t remember
Pro tip – Make sure you get a hostel in the town Haad Rin, next to the action. Then you don’t have to drive that death-road from Haad Rin to Thong Sala crammed like sardines together with a bunch of squawking drunk retards, where the rest of the hostels are.
Trust me on this guys. That road is a death trap the night full moon party is going on. People die on that stretch every month!
If you come to this island and think you are immortal, you have a high chance of ending up on that grim tourist death statistic.
Half Moon Festival
A very clever guy had to come up with this party. The conversation probably went like this: “Hey, we have Full Moon party. Why not Half Moon too?”
I’ve heard rumors of a No Moon Party coming very soon too!
This party I actually liked. The music was awesome, and it’s easy to see where the money you have to pay for the ticket went. The sound system is legendary, the decoration was amazing and it was not too crammed. And no beach where drunk people drown!
The festival takes place at an isolated place in the jungle.
You can find more information on this site about dates and tickets.
Cover: 900 baht Buckets: Still overpriced
+ whatever you have to pay for transport, as this festival is far out in the jungle. Some hostels will sell you tickets with transport included.
Pro tip – Stay at a hostel in Thong Sala. That way you don’t have to drive that exact same death road from Haad Rin.
Beer-bars with working girls
If you didn’t have any luck with that white smelly skunk from Denmark, there are still hope.
Beer-bars are found on the main road between Thong Sala and Haad Rin. But don’t have too high expectations. The hot girls are all going to Bangkok, Pattaya and Phuket, where the real money is made.
But, you can be lucky and find a girl who is decent. Who knows? 😀
The bars are hard to miss as there will be standing half-naked Asian girls out in the road in miniskirts trying to pull into their bar.
I’ve marked the beer-bars for you in the map below, just in case.
Haad Rin is where most of the action is going on when it’s not a full moon or half-moon party, but don’t expect it to be high-energy like the big events.
Everyone that goes to this island is just waiting for the big events. In the meantime people will just chill at the bars by the beach.
At Haad Rin beach there are two big bars by the beach. They’re exactly the same, so it does not matter who you go too.
The names are The Cactus Bar and Drop In Bar. There will be some kind of entertainment at these bars too. Like Thai flame shows and jumping rope.
Haad Rin town
At Haad Rin there is a little town too. You will find a lot of small bars, restaurants and gem shop around in the streets. The bars here, just like at the Haad Rin beach, are mostly filled up with young tourists from the Western world that are waiting for Full Moon / Half Moon.
As I mentioned in the beginning of this post. Most nightlife is going on south-east on the island. There are some small bars and restaurant up in north too, but it’s very calm.
In north you will find big resorts, but they are mostly populated with families with kids and divers.
Happy Ending Massage
There are small massage shops all over the island. The biggest concentration of them are in Haad Rin. This is also where the hottest and youngest girls work in my opinion.
Not all the shops will perform happy ending here. My best advise is to not be shy, and just ask. But nothing is guaranteed.
This island is not exactly a monger destination, and if you want unlimited choices with girls you should rather go to Bangkok, Pattaya or Phuket.
Motorbikes are one of those things I love about Thailand. They provide great freedom of movement. It’s also very fun to drive.
Thailand have countless of good spots to drive motorbikes.
You can rent a motorbike all over Thailand with very little bureaucratic interference. No need for licence, insurance or any other boring paperwork. Freedom! 😀
Of course, that freedom comes with a small risk, but the freedom you get from motorbikes are worth the risk in my opinion.
So don’t listen to those pussies that tell you to never rent a motorbike in Thailand. They miss out on a lot of fun, freedom and experiences. And to be honest. You’re not any safer in a pick-up truck, or songthaew as the Thai people call it, if you think so.
You need to live your life.
Here are some great tips on how to survive driving around in Thailand with a motorbike. In this post I will cover:
Driving a motorbike on Thai roads
Tips on driving a motorbike in Thailand
Renting a motorbike
What to do if stopped by the police (without proper papers)
Driving a motorbike on Thai roads
The traffic dynamic in Thailand is very different from the Western world. In the US and Europe we follow traffic laws like yield, red lights and road marks. In Thailand they don’t.
It’s pretty much anarchy on the roads here, and people do what the fuck they want.
A motorbike with an entire family on it, a dog and two infants, will drive straight through an intersection without even bother to look right and left, on red light. I see that shit almost daily, and every time I see it I freak out inside.
Sometimes you’ll see drivers in the cities driving on the sidewalk while honking to tell people to get the fuck out-of-the-way.
Yield is unheard of in Thailand, and the rule is more like “the biggest first” or “the most aggressive” first, combined with a lot of honking and flashing of lights.
As soon as you get outside in more rural areas, you will notice that not only adults are driving around town, but kids! I’ve seen kids as young as 8 year driving around on motorbikes with other kids on the back!
Then you have the pick-up trucks that are filled to the breaking point with propane tanks, driving around like a fucking racing car.
I once saw one if these trucks brake heavily. The propane tanks on the top flew off like they were catapulted of the truck, landing 30 meter further ahead the road. What if some motorbike with a family was in front of that truck??
At night Thai people, and tourists, will drive wasted back from the bar. Sometimes they crash, and because they are drunk, they have zero reflexes and will dive head first into a sidewalk curb or road sign.
The next day you’ll find a CCTV video on liveleak with human brains splattered all over the pavement.
Some tips on driving in Thailand
Well. You always need to be on your alert. You can’t space out for a second down here, especially in the cities. Always wear a helmet, and if you are going to do some serious biking. Get dressed properly.
Falling of a motorbike at any speeds faster than 30 km/t will take off some some serious skin if you fall of the bike.
Always have your hands on the breaks, as you never know when a dog, a kid, or just a reckless Thai driver will cut you off. These guys don’t bother to look in mirrors to see if the road is clear. Some even take of the mirrors because they don’t use them anyways.
Watch out for dust and gravel in the roads. There is a lot of that down here. I see tourists everywhere that have big bruises on their legs and arms. When I ask them what happened, they tell me that they drove too fast in a curve, and slipped because of gravel.
Don’t start to drive in the cities. Start out in the country side, or on a smaller island with calmer traffic. You don’t want to start your driving career in Thailand in Bangkok or Pattaya. That is almost certain to end bad for you.
When you start to understand the flow of the traffic here. You can drive in the bigger cities, or rent a bigger bike. But start easy!
Left side, left side, left side, left side….
Get that shit printed inside your head. It’s so easy to forget, especially on smaller roads with no road marks. If there is no traffic on the road, you will probably use the entire road, and when someone is coming towards you, you will move over to your side.
That’s a good time to remember what side of the road they drive on in Thailand, namely the left side.
Renting a motorbike in Thailand
Renting a motorbike in Thailand is very straight forward. You don’t need to show any driving licence or insurance papers. All they require is for you to sign a contract that you are renting a motorbike from their shop. They will also need to take a copy of your passport. And you’re good to go!
Most places will also require a deposit. This can be anything from 1000 to 4000 baht.
The motorbikes you’ll rent in Thailand are not insured. Most contracts you’ll sign will say this. That means if you wreck the scooter for some reason, you’ll have to pay for the damage. If you wreck it beyond repair you’ll have to pay for a new one.
How much does a new scooter cost in Thailand?
If you are renting a new scooter in Thailand, and you wreck it (worst case scenario). A new scooter can be anything from 40.000 to 70.000 baht.
On my third trip to Thailand I crashed a scooter slightly and ripped up a cap on the right side. I had to pay 4000 baht for that damage. Shit happens. 🙁
In my experience scams are uncommon when renting motorbikes. One scam however is that a shop will try to charge you for a damage you didn’t make. This could be deliberate, but it could also just mean that the owner didn’t see the damage before you deliver it back.
It’s important that you go over the bike before you set off. Look for scratches and missing parts. If you find anything that’s not right. Take a picture of it. That way they can’t really try to rip you off when you deliver it back.
Some shops have own forms where they will write down damages that is already on the bike. I would still take pictures just to be sure. Maybe they ‘lose’ this paper?? You never know.
Prices per day
Scooters: 150 – 300 baht Dirt Bikes: 250 – 500 baht Harley’s and sport-bikes: 1000 baht and up
What about the police?
The police is usually never a problem in Thailand, and most of them are very friendly. The risk of getting stopped by the police is very slim. And will only happen in two situations:
You don’t have a helmet, a police man sees you, he needs money, and he stops you.
The police have planned a road block because they need money and will stop everyone.
I’ve been stopped once in one road block outside Chiang Mai. They asked me if I had been drinking. I said no. Then they asked me to see my licence.
Well, I don’t have any licence. Fuck..!
After about 10 minutes of friendly talking. They let me go without paying anything.
Because I was calm and friendly the entire time. Cracked some jokes with them at the right moment, said I love Thailand and I tried to speak Thai with them lol.
I said that I drive very careful (which is true), but that I don’t have a Thai licence or international licence. Only my European licence, but that was at the hotel at that moment (not really).
Here is a little secret about Thailand – As long as you are polite, patient, smile and stay friendly. You will get away with a lot of these minor offenses. Thai people don’t take traffic rules nearly as serious as we do in the Western world, and a polite smile could solve a lot of stuff!
At worst case scenario you will have to pay some kind of ‘fee’ for wasting their time (bribe) on 500 baht or something like that.
I love to drive motorbikes. As long as you take it easy, don’t wander to far outside your own comfort-zone and wear the right gear. You will most likely never have any incident.
Driving motorbikes in Thailand is awesome as there are some many great places to drive. So many awesome routes, curvy roads, steep hills, and amazing sceneries.
I’m not trying to make this webpage into a news webpage, but I have to tell people about this.
Doing drugs in Thailand is no joke. If you get caught with drugs down here you are risking harsh prison sentences.
Not only will you stay in prison for a very very long time. You will end up in some of the worst prisons in the world. The prisons down here is nothing like the ones back in Europe or the US.
Here you will share one cell with so many people that you can’t lay down properly. You don’t get a bed. You lie on the floor. The first three months you wear leg shackles.
If you have to go on the toilet in the night, you literally have to crawl over other people that are sleeping on the ‘comfortable’ concrete floor.
Forget about AC in the heat season when temperatures can reach 45 degrees celsius.
Diseases that haven’t been seen in Europe since the middle ages are rampant. You won’t get out of prison without some kind chronic disease.
This Australian guy is now going to sit in a shitty Thai prison for the rest of his life.
No fun, no flirting, only basic food and no pussy. Forever…
Just because he tried to make some profit from selling drugs. I’ve tried Ecstasy, and yes, its pretty damn good. But I wouldn’t risk my freedom for it. Pussy is still better, and you will never get in trouble for that.
Personally I think it’s stupid to punish people who haven’t done harm to other people. If you do drugs, you will only fuck up yourself if you abuse them. Why should people be punished for that? If anything, you need help, not punishment.
I know this guy was busted with a lot of pills, and he probably had the intent to sell. Life in jail is still harsh in my opinion.
It’s weird that a country who is so relaxed about traffic violations, that kills and injure much more people, are so harsh on drugs. Ecstasy is not even that bad, if you compare it to yaba, heroin, or even alcohol.
When that is said. This is not my country. When you immigrate to another country you have to respect their culture and laws. I’m not here to change anything. (Wish I could say the same about muslims coming to Europe, but then you are racist apparently.)
I have compassion for the Australian guy. I feel sorry for him, but at the same time, he was stupid. He played with fire, and he fucked up.
Go to Cambodia
If you want to do drugs, get your ass over to Cambodia. They are much more relaxed about it. I bought weed in Siem Reap in full daylight on the street, next to a bar. No one gave a shit.
In fact. Marihuana is decriminalized in Cambodia. So walking around with 10-15 gram of pot is totally fine. I could smell the scent of weed everywhere.
But doing drugs in Thailand. That is just plain idiocy. It’s like going to Saudi Arabia and yell Allah is gay. You’re asking for trouble.
Doing the day trip to Ayutthaya is an excellent get-away break from the madness of Bangkok. The skyscrapers, concrete and lack of “green stuff” will get to you if you stay in Bangkok for a longer period of time.
If I stay more than two weeks in Bangkok. I start to feel an urge to get the hell out of there. I’ll get claustrophobic.
How to get there
The easiest way to get to Ayutthaya from Bangkok is to take the train. Not only is it easy, but with a ticket price of 20 baht it’s practically free!
It’s almost funny. The metro ticket from ‘Sukhumvit’ to ‘Hua Lamphong’. A 10 minute ride, is more expensive than the 2 hour train trip from Bangkok to Ayutthaya. Can someone please explain how that is possible?
To get to the train station in Bangkok you have to take the metro to the end station ‘Hua Lamphong’. From there the train station is just a short walk. Click here for google maps.
The only tourist trap you’ll encounter
And I fell for it, and so did everyone else!
Okay. When you arrive at the train station in Ayutthaya, there will be a shit ton of shops that rent out bikes and motorbikes. What these motherfuckers don’t tell you however, is that there is a river between the shops and the temples.
The only way to get over this river, is to bike down 300 m, bike over an extremely congested brigde with no sidewalk, and bike 300 m from the direction you came from at the other side of the river.
This might not sound soooo bad, but trust me. That brigde was dangerous to bike across. We all know how Thai people drive. I will make a map for you, so you understand what I’m talking about.
Here is what you WANT to do, that I learned a little bit too late. When you get out of the train station. Just walk straight ahead across all the shops that rent out bikes and motorbikes.
When you get to the river, there will be a little boat that takes you across for 10 baht. When you get to the other site of the river, there will be just as many bikes and motorbikes shops to rent from.
You just saved yourself from a 20 minute detour in 35 degrees. Thank me later!
Okay. So you got yourself a bicycle or motorbike, and hopefully a map. There are about 15 temples all around town that you can check out. It cost 50 baht per temple, and you buy the ticket at each temple you go to.
It’s a pretty big area, so prepare to use 6-7 hours if you want to see everything. My only regret with this trip was that I rented a bicycle instead of a motorbike. It was 37 degrees the day I was here, and I almost passed out several times from overheating. Fuck…
Luckily, there are several restaurants in the area that sell dirt cheap Thai food and cold drink if you need to refill.
Caution –If you are going to climb some of the ruins, be careful. There are snakes and spiders everywhere inside between the rocks.
Some of them are deadly if you don’t get to a hospital fast enough (and you wont).
You may not know it, but not all hotels are guest friendly. Not even at Sukhumvit in Bangkok. An area occupied with hookers, freelancers, coyote dancers, cheap booze and ladyboys.
If you’ve planned the sex vacation of a lifetime, just to book the wrong hotel, then get rejected in the reception at your hotel, with a big boner and a hot girl. Well. Fuck.. I feel sorry for you.
Here are some hotels I’ve stayed at in Bangkok over the years, that I know are 100% guest friendly.
And just to make it clear, with guest friendly I mean hooker friendly. 🙂
I will start with the cheaper ones, and I’ll work my way up.
Just to make it clear. The prices in this post is relative. The actual price really depends on season, how many rooms they have left and how early you book it. Look at the price as average price.
Unico Express @ Sukhumvit 3
Price: 800 baht Breakfast: Not good, minor selection Staff: Awesome!
Room – Very noisy AC. Rooms are very basic.
Position relative to Nana / Soi Cowboy:
Not good. The problem with Sukhumvit Soi 3 is that it’s a one way street. It’s easy to get to Nana / Soi Cowboy with a motorbike or taxi. But when you go back the driver has to take a BIG detour.
This is the cheapest hotel I’ve stayed on at Sukhumvit. You’ll find it at the end of Sukhumvit Soi 3. I guess you get what you pay for. In Bangkok at Sukhumvit, 800 baht will give you just the basics on an awkward location. A simple room, a simple breakfast, with the cheapest type of AC.
When that is said. Staff was very friendly. If you decide to stay here. Say hello to Nicky for me. That is the guy that will carry your luggage to the room. Very nice guy. 🙂
The hotel also had a swimming pool, but it was nothing to brag about like most hotel pools in Bangkok.
Price: 1500 baht Breakfast: Decent Staff: Big-mouthed, but friendly
Room – Very basic stuff. The style of the rooms are like some old hotel in Europe in the 90’s. AC very loud. I slept with earplugs here, lol. But I hate that AC sound. Just can’t get used to it.
Position relative to Nana / Soi Cowboy:
Smack in the middle. 5 – 10 minutes walk to either of them. This hotel is in my favorite street at Sukhumvit. Sukhumvit 8 is a nice and calm street, bit plenty of massage shops that will give you happy ending.
There is also many small local Thai restaurant here with cheap and good Thai food.
This hotel is a Scandinavian hotel. Most people who live here are from Norway, Sweden, Denmark or Germany. You can also get Norwegian and Swedish food here if you need a break from rice. 😛
I don’t know I stayed at this hotel. I guess I just had to try it out as it was a Scandinavian hotel.
Price: 2000 baht Breakfast: Heaven Staff: I dated one of them 😀
Room – The rooms at Dream Hotel are just that. A dream. All rooms have blue led-lights under the beds that sets the mood. Really awesome to bang hot gogo-dancers in that room. 🙂
Position relative to Nana / Soi Cowboy:
Dream hotel is in walking distance to Soi Cowboy. You can also walk to Nana, but it’s a little bit further. All the girls I’ve pulled from Soi Cowboy have walked back to the hotel with me. That way you save some bucks on taxi.
I love this hotel. I stay on it whenever I can. Been here many times. The staff is awesome, I even dated one of them for a long time. But I’m not going to tell you her name. She still works there 😛
The restaurant / bar have an awesome design. Good place to bring back ‘real’ girls from Thai Cupid for a quick drink before you lure her back to your room. 😀
Also. My favorite tailor is in that street. So if you want some cheap custom-made shirts. You should check him out.
Price: 2500 baht Breakfast: Epic Staff: Very friendly
Room – Very good. Silent AC, and the rooms come with a gigantic king-size bed. 🙂
Position relative to Nana / Soi Cowboy
This hotel is just 1 minute away from Nana. Really good location if you just want to relax in the hotel, go out, find a gogo-stunner, and take her back to the room for quick fun.
The hotel is really good. I love the pool area that you will find in 15th floor. It’s silent and easy to relax. The breakfast at the hotel is awesome, and you can enjoy it by the pool. The hotel also have a fitness center, and it’s really close to the sky-train system.
Just a quick post about some health benefits I’ve had the year I’ve been living here. If you’re experiencing weird symptoms that you can’t explain. Maybe it can have something to do with where you live?
Nothing is impossible. I got rid of some problems when I relocated. Here are some of them. 🙂
1: No stress
Thai people don’t know what stress is. Okay, maybe they do, but they never stress unless it’ssomething to really stress about. Like hanging under a brigde, then you’re rope start to unravel.
Most Thai people are living the slow-life, and that’s the best fucking way! Why stress so much? What will happen if you don’t stress? Nothing!
Being surrounded by people with a very worry free attitude have for sure affected me a lot the last year. Stuff that would stress me pre-Thailand don’t bother me any more.
I walk slower. I eat slower. I fix my hair slower. I do pretty much everything slower. 😀
I have to laugh every time I see a typical American family down here. Everything have to happen so fast! They want to see everything the first day. If something doesn’t go as planned they will get angry, and if their hotel don’t understand them they will get frustrated. Calm the fuck down!
The eternal stream of thigh Asian pussy coming my way isn’t exactly making me more stressed either. 😀 😀
Less stress means better health.
Hey! You want to sing along with me? 😀
2: Minor weather changes
This is a typical week in Northern Europe:
Monday: 27 degrees, sunny, high humidity
Tuesday: 10 degrees, cloudy, strong gale, heavy rain
Wednesday: 15 degrees, haze, cloudy, no wind
Thursday: -30 degrees, crystal clear blue skies, zero humidity
Friday: Snow, rain, hail and a thunderstorm fighting with a hurricane
Ok. Maybe I exaggerated slightly here, but you get my point. The weather in back home is a constant battle. As soon as you’ve gotten used to 25 degrees, sun and high humidity. The weather turns around, and now it’s 10 degrees and overcast. So now you’re freezing your balls off, and have to get used to 10 degrees.
In Thailand the temperatures are pretty much the same everyday. There is never a rapid chance. In Bangkok, where I live, the temperatures fluctuates between 25 – 40 degrees celsius over an entire year. Not a big deal.
I never think about temperatures anymore. I don’t feel cold, and I don’t feel hot. I’ve become acclimatized to tropical weather.
And I love the fact that I don’t need clothes for all types of weather. Just throw on a t-shirt and a shorts. And you have clothes for the entire year. 😀
3: Stable daylight cycle
This is probably the most important one. I had really bad insomnia back home. I had big problems maintaining a stable circadian rhythm.
In the summer it was daylight 24/7. Impossible to fall asleep.
In the winter the sun was over the horizon a couple of hours per day. Impossible to feel refreshed. Not to forget the yearly winter depression that made everything worse.
In Thailand the sun goes up around 6 am, and it goes down around 7 pm. All year around.
And I’ve never slept better, and I’ve actually become an early morning bird.
I will usually go to sleep around 10-11 pm, then I’ll wake up to sunrise 6-7am. I’ll get 12 hours with sunlight, then it gets completely dark, and I will pass out.
