SRSLY YO! Im trying to like you but, don't discuss such nasty things. Think them if you must but don't speak them or post them.

Remember the #1 rule of Thailand: Be nice and ur problems will be few.

Re: Thailand returns

her mother tried to seclude my gf and also made us lose 100k baht a month

Think that qualifies for some major hatred, she also refused to talk to me since day 1. She sold every land that my gf bought for her at rebate prices to buy alchool and clothes when they were bought to start a new factory since they lost theirs.
She forced her pregnant dauther to give her own car so that she could go shop, when a pregnant girl really shouldnt be riding on a bike.

She's pure evil. Everytime she talks to my gf she cries for hours.

Im usualy good at not caring but this is a little overboard and the gf def knows how i feel and she deals with it, she clearly said she prefers to stay with me and that we just dont talk about this.

It's just funny to see people ( not only you ) who just dismiss the place because they spent two nights on walking street and don't know the city at all.

Pattaya beach is awful, that's why I mentioned the 20bahts boat ride to the islands with thin white sand and blue transparent sea.

Lots of activities can be done elsewhere that's true, Clearly not all. Oh and one can say that about just every city in the world so that's pointless.

Also if you are racist against russian people I can't help you with that. You probably know them as well as you know pattaya.

Lots of bangkok expats ( men and women ) enjoy pattaya, tons of thais go to pattaya every week end. Judging the city because you spent two nights in the hooker zone can't be serious.

You remind of the guys who spend 2 nights in nana-plaza and conclude: "bangkok is ugly, polluted and full of hookers".

I did the same mistake about hua hin because I spent two nights in the tourist ghetto and didn't know the city. Talked to friends who love the place and I realized I missed a lot.

I think the main problem with pattaya is that there is no indication in guide such as lonely planet and a lot of tourist just get trapped in the hooker main zone without seeing any part of the city except walking street.

Of course to each his own, so my recommendation if you are a backpacking hippy is to simply avoid bangkok and pattaya and go straight to the south and chiang mai.

BTW the hooker selection is better in Bangkok imo.
two nights at walking street? making up stuff as you go along for your arguments now?
actually i stayed in jomtien and saw most of the town. oh and bkk has been great the few times ive been there, not comparable.

s15 Hotel on soi 15 and park plaza at asoke are by far the best hotels i know in bangkok. Both are outstanding for 100$/night imo.

Oh noes I don't like getting drunk and going out. But if you have a tea party or something PM me.

Also the 27th is my birthday so there should be a lot of mayhem!

yeah :
-french food : Le normandie oriental hotel
-Italian : Angelini Shangri-la hotel
-Thai : Between Celadon Sukhothai hotel and The thai restaurant with a thai name at the shangri la hotel
-For Japanese : the jap restaurant at the sheraton grande sukhumvit is sick for meat dunno about sushi and stuff i don't like that much

+1 for the fries at larry's dive and the waitresses are tasty too.
oh and the view @the dome state tower is worth a meal ( nice food but not wow unless you are american or english ) http://www.thedomebkk.com/

Re: Thailand returns

also larry is one lunatic guy, hes pretty funny.

One day i was eating there with francois, and this weird star wars geek type of 45yo guy, starts blabering while ease dropping... turns out he was 'trying' to understand french.. he named itself something goofy like bonny or wtv and he kept making all the OCD annoying stuff u can think of while surfing on his laptop.

Then i looked at the cardboard with 'larry' and his surfboard... looks exactly like him. see a picture of larry and it was really him.

Only a lunatic could have such nice women working for him and not turning it into a topless restaurant/gogobar but hes still a pretty nice guy

Re: Thailand returns

"The scariest part is the sin-sod ( the money you give for marriage ) it's around 100k for a hooker/farmer and an easy 1 million for a uni-educated proper thai girl."

The money is returned to the bride and groom, atleast when they are both Thai.

There is a Thai Visa member named Heng who is a young Chinese-Thai who grew up in American and now runs several businesses in Thailand. He has covered the topic of sin sot in depth if you want to get a better idea about it. All of his posts are really good. He is actually one of the few reasons to read ThaiVisa.

yeah made a second post later saying the same stuff.

Thaivisa is probably the most misinformed forum ever, you really start wondering if those people post crap just to confuse newbies after a while...
And the atmosphere Is godawful, terrible showase of the expats community in Thailand.

But glad to learn that there is at least one good poster.
