Re: Ask Degen Anything About Living In Thailand

1) Do you guys know of any Americans doing something stupid and getting arrested and put in jail for a long time? I mean doing something stupid as in getting drunk and trying to buy drugs or something along those lines... Not hurting or killing someone or raping a thai girl or something.

Honestly this thread is making me seriously consider taking 3 months and going to Thailand.

Re: Ask Degen Anything About Living In Thailand

Okay, a couple more questions:

How is the TV over there? Can you get any western shows? Do they have SKY? In the cheaper hotels you described, do they even have TV's?

Also, let's say I decided to take your advice and just fly there and play it by ear - what's the best way to find a cheap hotel for the first few nights?

Re: Ask Degen Anything About Living In Thailand

Degen:

Visiting soon, have some specific q's about Bangkok.

Spa: I want to send my parents to a great day spa. I don't know if you or your lady friend has ever been pampered at such a place, and I know there are cheaper places available, but I am looking for insight into either the Banyan Tree Spa or the Oriental's Spa. I know they are 'paeng mak' but this is a gift, so I'm not worried.

Dim Sum: Ever been? Can you recommend a place? I'm willing to go to Chinatown, but anywhere is alright.

Re: Ask Degen Anything About Living In Thailand

-Spas are everywhere

-Dim sum is everywhere. The nicer hotels usually have a decent dim sum restaurant

-Hotels with TV's are everywhere

-Shag: Dont do stupid [censored] when you are drunk and you will be fine. Although I have done my fair share of drunk antics but I never did anything to get me in trouble.

-Seafood IS insanely cheap. Plus, you can eat it fresh every single day. There is nothing like going and pucking up fresh crabs and prawns mmmmmmmmm

-I dont miss american at all but I miss my family sometimes

Re: Ask Degen Anything About Living In Thailand

When I lived in the south, one day Honda did this promotion for their motorbikes, I guess they had a new model ome out or something: They took a flatbed type truck with the motorbike on it and had 4 of the hottest thai chicks I have ever seen almost naked and grinding on each other and all over the bike and [censored]. I was driving at the time so I decided to alter my intended route so I could look at the eye candy for a few more blocks.

Hot chicks are all over the place. They are used to promote everything too.

In thailand there are no highering practices. So you can only hire hot chicks, thin chicks, etc. When you place an add in the paper you can specifically say you will only hire beautiful girls and request a photo right away. I think its a great system.

Would you recommend Thailand to someone with a wife and two toddlers?

Re: Ask Degen Anything About Living In Thailand

One thing though, I want to be able to play poker on my laptop but if I bring my laptop I can't do the backpacking around the islands and whatnot without leaving my laptop somewhere or carrying it with me which wouldn't be that fun.

So I dunno, should I bring my laptop and leave it somewhere, I mean you are the master advice giver, how will I do this?

Re: Ask Degen Anything About Living In Thailand

I backpacked with my laptop for several months. You can secure it places.

I have UBC sat tv and get HBO and [censored] like that but I dont really watch tv. There is a decent amount of stuff to keep me busy without it.

Pirated dvd's are awesome. $2.50 for a dvd. Same for software, etc.

Some people travel here with kids and babies but I dont see the point. Thailand doesnt have much entertainment directed at children so I dont know what they would do.

Ya I was thinking about this. Mainly wanting to have laptop with me if I want to get in some hands, but probably I wont get in any hands. I mean, how many hands did you get in the first trip you took, or where you even planning on playing any poker?

My plan was to play 30k hands but I guess that could be done at an internet café, but pretty grindish 4 tabling without my DB/PAhud and stuff?

I can stay on the road indefinitely as long as I make enough online to pay my way, so would likely end up bringing the extra massive piece of luggage.

BTW: The idiot who's your new avatar is one of my Senators. I can't wait to get out of this place.
