Good to hear I didnt get ripped off on the motorbikes, as i did with a tuk tuk who I let charge me 100 baht for 4 minute trip to khao son road!

I went to Siam paragon and Siam Discovery and a couple of others. They suck for me because I have no interest in purchasing high end stuff, i'd rather spend 30 minutes going round some thai market or neighbourhood as i did the first time i went near sukhumvit. i checked out the EVG cinema but they were only showing awful films bar the thai ones i hadnt heard of.

i did purchase entorouge season 1 + 2, extras season 2 though to watch from those khao son dealers. They are very good quality unlike films like I am Legend which is a cinema handheld camera copy.

the aquarium place was great though to be fair, which is located in the downstairs of one of the shopping centres. Siam square is fun too although not for shopping unless you have the $$$.

In 5 days im off to Ubon to see a friend which should be good, then back to bangkok and then try to organise a kho chang trip,

Re: Thailand returns

I'd like to come and check out BKK to see if I'd like to live there.

I'd like to party and check out the scene in general, living decently - this considered how much do you guys recommmend I budget per week for the trip?

Edit: Also, how the house music nightclub scene in BKK?

Like others have said these threads, you can get by on very little, or spend a ****load of cash, depending on what you want to do. What do you plan to do during your trip?

General prices:

Hotels
Hostels <10USD/night
Serviced Apts and midrange hotels 50 - 80 USD/night
High end - 100+USD

Food
Street Vendors - 50c - 1USD
Decent Restaurant 4 - 10 USD
Upperscale - 10+

Western food establishments are generally a bit cheaper then back home.

Nightlife
You can buy a case of heineken at the store for a little over 10USD
At clubs, prices seem to be around the same as western clubs (maybe a bit cheaper).

Transportation
Cheap. You can get a cab or a tuktuk halfway across town for less than 3USD. You can take the skytrain/metro for 1-2USD.


If you're looking to come here, party most of the week, do some shopping, and enjoy western comforts, you will probably need to budget 1 - 1.5kUSD.

Re: Thailand returns

u save a ****load if u cook...
everytime i go buy some supplies.. i come back with 6-7 bags and it costs me around 40$ usd
right now im living on some insta noodle soup... it tastes so ****ing good.. eggs and chicken too. as much mangos as i can too ... god i love the ***** mangos.. never had them before i camehere...
im a sour freak so im in heaven.. my gf just feeds them to me while i watch tv like in the roman times.... fantasy came true!

how do you only spend 32k a month?

apart: 30k
food : 5k a week (stupid restaurants)
if i go out its at least 10k a week ... right now this month im staying in to grind so im saving a lot
shopping.. i get my mom to send me stuff from home.. cause the stuff here is too expensive or ugly.. even the expensive stuff is ugly (guys wear though.. women wear is great but since im not bkkdude.. i dont wear dressses. no offense.. im just not into the ladyboy scene)
electric/cable/inet/water is 7-8k a month
cellphone 2k a month

if u plan on doing the gogo's and soapies (wish i could damnit) u gotta spend at least 20k a week (girls+booze+booze+smokes+girls)


or u can just get ur dick sucked in a blowjob bar by 3 girls for 1k while some ugly old guyt watches u while wanking off (eh jappe?) :P

Re: Thailand returns

Hey gents

Where would be the nicest place to stay on or very near to a beach? What are the nicest beaches? Are they all releatively safe? What would be considered the safest part of thailand?

I'm willing to stay for over a year and I'm not that interested in the night life at all so keep that in mind if you are making a suggestion.

WTF, you still have your mom shop for you even though you're halfway across the world? If you don't like the clothes in the store, just go to a good tailor and they'll make you anything from a pair of pants to a clown suit. Good jeans are the only thing I've had trouble finding.

No offence intended dude, but it's pretty standard for chicks in those countries to 'forget' to take their pill.
