Seriously, what would you do in Thailand for the next 40 years?

Hang out in pattaya until you are 50 then die from the aids.

No but seriously its doable but not a good plan, one year two years perhaps then its about time to step out of the fishbowl again.

As people said, financially this is very doable. You would probably have to spend a significant amount of time in Thailand and make sure you really like the country first. This isn't a first-world country so you have to have a plan B if things get crazy. I've met quite a few people in your position (mostly a little older) and they invariably self-destruct unless they have a business or something else to keep them busy.

Hope you enjoy. Remember that the nightlife is a small part of why most people come here. Its just that its the most discussed thing in this thread. There are tons of things you can do in the daytime.
I feel very grateful for living in a country where I can have so much fun and beauty in the daytime... only to me greeted by the same thing at night

Re: Thailand returns

i beg to differ.

the nightlife is WHY most guys cum to bangkok. the touristy things just happen to be there. touristy things can be found in any asian country, all similiar. what sets bkk apart from the rest is the NIGHTLIFE>>>>>>>>>>>lol.

the bkk nightlife scene is not overratted guys, its great!!!!!!!!!!!!

im here for a lil vacation currently and the night life is ****in great. but there is a major draw back. the amount of hookers here are just crazy. it would be nice if i can go to a place where only regular non "working" girls are and can actually try to have a successful pickup without having to spend money. im sure i can probably try to get a working girl for free but the idea of her having so many diseases cause of her working just turns everything off. are there any places here where i can try to game a non working girl. or where the majority of the girls are not working. i feel like any place i go, that they are only being nice cause they have to and not cause they want to. and this is a major turnoff.

Re: Thailand returns

allright, can I get an update? where are the social 2+2ers living at in Thailand right now? a bunch of us from ATL will be in the LOS for a month or so in Feb-Mar, and it's time we started figuring out where we are going. Last time we spent most of the trip in Bangkok, which was cool and we may try again, but I'd kind of like to spend a little more time beachfront.

I feel the same, It was cool the first week then it got old. But the #1 major turnoff for me is when at the end of a night a girl starts to bring up the money subject. Then I just want to headbutt her and go home.

Bkk dude, u underestimate the amount of family's and tourists that are in this country. I believe they and their familys represent a greater number than the sextourists. But I don't want to get into an argument about that, I am just saying that there is a great deal of other things great about this country other than hookers.

Pumi, yeah the water was a bit cold by my standards it might be better later. But I think youy should check it out before you go if you are planing on going in around april, so you dont go there and its all dried up.
Last april I made a ****ing deadly treak/climb up to a blue lagoon only to find out there was no lagoon just a ****ing knee deep pool of mud.

Re: Thailand returns

i dont underestimate the amount of non sex tourists.

i was referring to the comment that you made that most here are interested in the nightlife here.

perhaps i should be more specific , returning single guys, those with multiple immigration stamps are cumming for the nightlife.

i like to ask this question, what does thailand have that other countrys dont have that keep tourist cumming back. Please tell me the great things thailand has to offer. Beaches, maui got em. Culture, every country has culture. Nice people, same as culture.

one guy did answer my question with cheap taxis...........lol. many places dont have this.

mr k. when you find the free gurl can you let us know.........lol. if you just forget the notion about free or good gurls i think you will enjoy bkk better. you want free stay at home.........lol.

or put yrself in the thai gurls shoes. what are some good reasons you want to spend time with a single male from a foreign country, who probably is only visiting. i cant cum up with any.

Re: Thailand returns

First off, I dont 100% understand what you are saying, So bare with me. From what I can understand you are saying that I and everyone else here is a sex tourist. You dont understand why im here, why not in another country? The reason why so many come down here and live has been mentioned a thousand times in this thread. Read it. Right now it snows in my country right now, hows that for reason.

I have a girl, a good working 10h/day girl that splits the note when we eat out. (not GF)
Lets add up the facts from our girlfriends, I start. And you will see a pattern.

Mine:
Has a job, Realestate.
Speaks 100% eng
Lived in NY, New Jersey
Vacations in Europe, Se asia, Usa.
Rich family
Educated a few months ago from uni.
Got angry with me when I wanted to buy her shoes(#1 hint she is not a whore)
No tattoo

Well I cant speak for her what she is doing with me, But im with her for the sex and company. We have a good time together.

Girls like to have fun too.

I bet your girls look something like this;
Speaks Tourist english. "YOU me GO," WHERE YOYU GO"
works in bar
"Has a good heart"
Takes you out shopping and eating, you pay for everything.
Has tattoo of a koyfish on her left shoulder
****s you like you are the 110'th men she has ****ed.

..

Please add

Re: Thailand returns

if more say they came to bkk to get away from snow i may be convinced.........lol.

so you have a free gurl you may be the exception. but i doint understand why you posted that many of the gurls you have taken usually bring up money at the end. seems it was a common thing or else you wouldnt have brought it up.

AND IT DOES MAKE A difference when one lives in thailand as opposed to staying a week or a month or two. im making a huge assumption that people here r interested in los from a tourist viewpoint as this is a travel section. thaivisa i think caters to those who actually live in los, not same same.


IM POSTING ABOUT TOURIST WHO WANT FREE GURLS...........LOL. i dont understand why!

when you ask why most 2=2 ers are interested in bkk nightlife i tried to explain why.

if you believe people are more interested in non nightlife things then i think you are mistaken.........lol.

Re: Thailand returns

kaah you are probably talking about bkkdude.

Its simply of no use to try to make him understand that some people in thailand are not
Fat and ugly and in lack of a personality.
Some of us did pull girls for free in first world countries and still can in third world...
Obviously you just have to let it go and let him enjoy his money wasting lifestyle. he's helping girls, and they make him feel special.. Which is sad in a way but in the end everyone is happy happy.

My girlfriend just got cut off from her monthly cash supply and guess what, she's buying me groceries right now so that i can cook fajitas.

Girls arent after the money more than anywhere else in the world... Some of us are fish, some are shark bkk is simply a big fishy...
and who loves fishies more than poker players? That's why i decided to ignore the troll, he's a fish and i lvoe him when hes silent!

Im simply wondering now, why do u chose not to be involved with that girl?
personaly im a lonely child so obviously i like the emotiaonl company 24/7.

on a last note. chili poker is still ***** rigged.


edit: forgot to add.. a real gf here rocks... u can get tester and actualy get rid of the friggin condom... sex with a condom is not sex.. its latex masturbation.

Re: Thailand returns

can someone else ask what poop meant when he say his gurl got cut off from her monthly cash supply. is she a working gurl who lost her sponsorship or what?


someone put it bluntly. guys dont go to bkk to enjoy tourist things and then happen to find a lot of hookers. its the other way around, they know hookers exist and that tourist things happen to be there also.


actusally poop is right not all farang in los fat and ugly just most of them..........lol.

Re: Thailand returns

forgive the noob question but kaah, some of those pictures look really sweet--do you need a really expensive camera or be good at photography to take them looking that good? or will a $200 camera and no photography experience get the job done?

My pics are taken with digital system cameras and the only job I had in my life was being a photographer for a short while. So I have some equipment and experience but you can pick up a sec-hand canon 350d with some used lensed for prob 1-1.5K$ prob is the size, my camera equipment weighs 9Kg and is good for about 4-6K$(+you might bring a laptop), not so good to be backpacking with.

200$ pocket cams are handy, depends wich one but the latest have a quick startup time and a good deept of field wich makes them perfect for taking snapshots wich you can edit afterwards and get a good result with(perfect if you the type of photographer that likes to take pictures in the club/bar) but dont expect the quality of a 2K dsl with a 1K lens on it vs a 200$ camera.
