A few Qs:

What about the gogo bars? If you are talking about the nana style ones well they are to my knowledge none in my area, but it's a maybe

Is this what u r refering to as " short time meat market " Nope i was reffering to a place with girls on a stage but not dancing, you point you chat a bit and you take care of your business either in the premises or at home, notice that there is a 200bf if you want to take the girl out, the cheapest are 300b all included (girl and room) the usual price is 500b. There is probably a foreigner surcharge but i don't know how much. the prices are quoted are "farang prices"usually they have a group picture of all the girls working there outside. The places with a group picture are mostly karaoke places, with shagging on the premises and barfine possible

The prices for the upscale massage joints you quoted are on the lower end imo and they often charge you a " farang fee "In bangkok yes I agree, but in the suburbs the pricing is different

Do all these karaoke bars have rooms to have fun with the girls?yes, there is private rooms in 99% of the local karaoke Like you can go there drink and **** a girl if u want and then go back to drink? If yes that would be ***** awesome and we should def. check that out ...well that's what happened last time i went there, it's probably the same in every karaoke aroundwhats the quality of these rooms? I cant think of them beeing very clean but u tell me.It's better than the short time rooms on sukhumvit but not the best thing ever. Otherwise there is a 24hours hotel with clean rooms not far from my place 200b for 2 hours clean rooms no problem. Oh according to a colleague if you take the girl there and bring her back to the bar no barfine to pay

The discos, how many of them close at 2 and how many stay open until 8?Every disco i've been in in my area is open at least until 4am Do the girls speak english? depends usually very little but i don't really care muchDo they have a dance floor? usual thai places layout so yes and noAre there normal working girls or just hookers/freelancers?normal girls mostly, but not bkk girls (no used to farang you are still exotic ect...

Why only weekdays? lets say my week ends are pretty busy already

Where do you live?in the jungle basically, next side of the river after saphan taksin
.

Quote:
regarding massage parlours, dont they offer special treatments? Sometimes its worth it to pay alot if you can get an awesome body2body massage and whatnot if youre bored of the 0815 number with those beerbargirls and they look hotter.I couldn't agree more, haven't been to a ton of massage place in the area. But i don't mind paying more for a white skinned big breasted expert masseuse in a few BKK places mostly around rama 9, rca and ratchada/petchburi

The cheap girls in karaoke bars and " meat markets "...
Dont they charge you more then the usual if youre a foreigner? The brother of my gf told me that the normal price for a thai is like 500 baht but they charge more for falangs.again it's the suburbs, 500b seems to be the regular farang price here, dunno what the thais pay

Tey even had the nerves to install that bull**** on every DSLAM(so not at the central, just at every street corner).. soon we'll get a bunch of **** blocked athough after calling them they wont admit it.

is this the error you get (in ie) ?:

I was going yeah but not in bkk.

Went to 3 new places around my place:

- First one : A big western looking place, i mean western like in buffalo skulls and ****. It's a bar with a band and many hookers/freelancers but it was only 9pm so not many people yet. We spotted a few hot girls arriving. Need to check it again a bit later next time.

- Second one : in the middle of nowhere I spot a place reading: Japan, China VIP cocktell hotesse (yeah written like that ) with about 10 girls sitting outside. shipped two in the vip room (150bahts an hour) was going alright except that my friend's girl was into me not him and mine was 16. So we left. Girl go out for 500 all inclusive just ask to see their ID.

- Third one : Found a new spot with 20 or so bar/karaoke/massage mix and a busy disco. So went to a random place and oh surprise it's a local G-club.
Booked the 100bahts VIP room and two girls. Like in every G-club you have to pay the girl to sit with you. It was 100b an hour pretty ridiculous for a G-club but why not.
So apparently the girls can choose if they want to go out with you or not, this is pretty scandalous. We left at around 2am and the girl I was with got picked up by her mother outside of the club (so she said ). Was probably her pimp in fact but weird. The disco was packed with some decent local pooyings
i'll be back.

So besides a bit of exploring nothing special, next time you do a 2+2ers outing in bkk pm me before 3pm ( weekdays ).

BTW any of you guys scored in karafun? i did only once with a massage girl but she paid for the booze so fair enough.

OH yes and this : yesterday i was out with an absolute expert in the scene ( local and bkk ) he is going out 4 nights a week since 5 years so as a bit of experience and can speak and read a good thai. So with his infos here are my next plan for the local scene before hitting bkk proper:

- On petchkasem road there is a soi full of karaoke and bars (around 20) from the decrepit to the upscale, the girls in the upscale one are expensive massage parlour quality apparently and the best thing is they have a few short time hotels in the same soi, those are the best ever with jacuzzi, complimentary condoms and lube vibrating bed and all the **** you need.

- On ratchada the outside of bangkok side is full of places with girls and discos/massage ect... Some very nice one to be had over there according to my source. Short time hotels next door.

That will be the last local scene exploring mission for me, i rounded up enough place i now just need to:

-find a reliable few in case of genital emergency
-find out about the mia noi scene (upscale karaoke and specialized places ) . Seems like you can ( and should ) negociate all kind of weird deals. Also it's those places are a gateway to the local hi-so thai circles which means access to the best girls.

ON BKK:

There is a scene i haven't explored fully: the japanese teen massage.
two particularities:

- The girls are between 18 and 22 ( hence the teen part ) and have funny japanese nicknames and dresses ( kimono and stuff ).
- They use a special kind of massage gel called "Nuru-Nuru" and it's awesome, they also have some strange accessories like chairs with a hole in the middle (?) and the japanese crazyness. Got my infos from a japanese colleague, the prices are ok between 1000-2500 all in.

Trip report soon, pm if you want to join

Good to know, although I don't think It will affect much, other than, maybe downloading the client, the first time.

Edited: Well, it could slow down the speed, like at China.

I'm really curious about this. Are the girls expected to be faithful? Will they not call you unless you call them? Is there no BS about sick buffaloes because you have a long-term deal?

One of my colleague have one another used to.

Here's how it worked for him:

- He gives her 6000 a month
- She stays full time in his place, her deal includes cooking, housework and bedroom antics.
- She's a student 6k a month happens to cover the cost of the local uni.
- He pays for food and school books ( i know... ahah )
- He found her in a local nightclub
- She is expected to be faithful, he is not obv

She is basically a professional girlfriend/maid.

The other guy deal was:

- He paid for her pad not far from the uni (4k a month)
- she comes when he wants her to, she can call
- she had 8k a month "salary"
- she was expected to be faithful, he was not obv
- found her in a beauty salon, she was working there as a student's job on the WE

More like a typical deal imo

He ended spending way too much money on her ( restaurant, nightclubs,presents ect... ) and fired her when she tried to stab him with a kitchen knife because he refused to take her along on a visa run to laos...

I'd really like to know more too especially : how the **** do you ask? something like : hey babe, need some book money?

Re: Thailand returns

Guys, does anybody who has stayed in the president solitaire know if the internet is good enough for 6-tabling ipoker? New to Thailand, but would appreciate that and any other suggestions on those kind of cool hotels and serviced apartments where the internet for sure is going to be very good? Thanks a bunch, and if anybody is free to meet the first 2 weks in december let me know.

Re: Thailand returns

the wired internet at the dream hotel is pretty much perfect though the wireless can be a spotty. Think it's just wireless at the solitaire and IIRC it's not really great for grinding on.

Re: Thailand returns

Hey guys great thread!

Hoping you guys can give some advice on the Thailand situation a lot of poker players have going on and how you got started etc, will give info on current position we are in.

There is 5 of us in total I think all poker players aged from 19 to 21, four from Sweden and myself from UK, between us we play high to low stakes. The plan is to move out to Thailand in late January early February and like all before us get a place set up with decent Internet, grind away and maybe have a beer in the afternoon as well!

That’s all we have at the moment, were still not sure on where in Thailand exactly and was planning on just finding a house/apartment to rent when we get there but things never go smoothly so hoping you guys can fill us in on what we need to do and how to get prepared for whats ahead

Huge thanks in advance.

Have posted this in both Thailand threads to make sure it doesnt miss anyone.
