i guess if you like to be in a big city stay in bangkok. they also have better night clubs and stuff compared to elsewhere so if you are only interested in night life go there

if you want to chill on beach, see some nice views etc you should come to phuket

both have the obvious services and stuff

can't say anything about pattaya since i havent been there and havent heard anything good about it

Anyway so we were eating I guess on the Cowboy street/lane .... ate at the end of the road at the Dutch pub across from teh British one (Setanta and Sky sports banner). That street was quite the site, seemed like serious debauchery. Didn't end up going into any of the bars as we were super exhausted and had an early flight back.

But what is the deal with all the women outside of the bars? Are they 100% hookers or are the hotter ones (usually holding signs or wtvr) just hostesses trying to get you to go into the bar to spend money on a few Singha's?

If I'm only going to visit Thailand for 1 wknd as a vacation better off going to Bangkok or Pattaya or Phuket or somewhere else?
Those girls are pros

Pretty much every girl on Soi Cowboy is a pro. Im sure even the old grannies who sell fried grasshoppers would go long time if you asked.

Re: Ask us about Thailand!

I "dated" a gogo dancer once and she told me that before she danced and started taking customers she was put to work holding the signs outside the club.

So I guess some of those girls are pros in training.

Re: Ask us about Thailand!

I will be in Bangkok on January 24th. i plan on going to Full Moon Party on January 30th. I'm looking to meet up with someone for Full Moon Party. You can only book hotel for minimum 4 days. Id like to get something nice. I'm hoping I can live in Thailand with $5,000 for 14 days. I plan on living very comfortable as this is a reward trip for alot of hard work. If anyone has any ideas or wants to meet up for some adventures in thailand let me know. I also plan on camping in Maya Bay. I'm also bringing a nice HD camcorder to film small documentary of my travels.

I'm a little nervous about attending full moon party by myself, as i plan on getting crazy. I also got on Thai dating site so I have girls for every leg of the trip, not hookers. Message me for details.

Re: Ask us about Thailand!

I'm gonna be traveling through asia next month and I plan to spend around 7-10 days in thailand. I've never been and I'm looking for suggested itineraries. I will be traveling by myself so I'm trying to find places good for solo travelers. Anything I absolutely have to see while I'm there?

depends what you are into. kind of difficult to suggest anything specific for such a short trip if you dont tell more about your interests

when people come to visit me in phuket the first days i usually show them around the island through view points and beaches. the scenery here is very nice and driving around is fun and relaxing.

after that it kind of depends what people want to do so i am not going to write a long post guessing what you might like

Fair point, I left my post vague cause I don't really know what to expect. I want to experience the culture, I want to see some outdoors stuff, and of course I want to get drunk and have fun a little. I figured I'd start in Bangkok and preferably not spend too much time traveling since I don't have that much time to begin with (maybe take one or two local flights?). I'm not sure if I should try to stay in backpacker kinda places to meet people or something nicer? Also interested in unusual food suggestions.

Re: Ask us about Thailand!

im looking to book some accomodation in phuket for a few days. would like somewhere that is reasonably close to the beach and nightlife (not sure if thats possible?). i found places in city centre, patong and karon. any recommendations?

also, id like to spend a few days travelling around the islands around phuket. whats the best way to do this? which islands are good? Is it easy to organise this type of stuff once im in phuket or should i be booking stuff well in advance?

thanks!
