Re: Ask us about Thailand!

So im coming to bangkok earlier than expected in about a week bc it cant wait it seems...

here's my plan for the first couple weeks. go out every single night, trying to find the best g-club there is by visiting them all over bkk. pretty much just interested in clubs like the one in the video and gclubs, but if anyone else had a similar idea, or other 2+2ers are up for going out and eventually getting a membership to the best club, pm me ur contact details.

seems like this club is first on the list

Re: Ask us about Thailand!

Ya these threads have definitely evolved, saying it's worse then before it debatable, remember all the stupid girl arguments with rewket/bkkdude?. I definitely think that the chatter thread isn't nearly as spontaneous as it should be, but w/e. I'm basically a fan of hot chicks getting posted though.

Dear johnbeans,

The gentleman in your avatar appears to have a drooling problem. It's pretty nasty. Can you do something about it?

Thanks

Re: Ask us about Thailand!

Can you play on FTP at Phuket without ever getting a disconnect? Are there options for having a back up connection?

Last time I was in Bangkok I couldn't really play comfortably. It was doable, but not great. I had small time-outs ever 2 or 3 hours that made me go on site out or gave me an exciting time during a hand.

Yes. All you need is a proper ADSL connection (from TT&T or CAT and possibly TOT depending on where you live), a USB aircard CDMA thing (also from CAT) as backup connection and a UPS for power cuts and you're pretty safe.

Re: Ask us about Thailand!

Two questions boys.

Firstly, the party question. How much do you guys spend on average when you go out for the night to party? What does that entail, and how many days a week do you do that?

Secondly, where is a good place to live/be to be more spiritually focused (meditate and study)?

Thanks in advance.

200 baht to 6000 baht. six nights a week. a beer and a few games of pool, to bottle service at a nicer disco, perhaps a threesome with some hookers in a hot tub.

Read advice on the latter would be preferred.

Re: Ask us about Thailand!

here is good article and some links
http://www.thaiwebsites.com/medical-check-ups.asp
i went to BNH and was happy with that. did the grande option and paid about 5k due to some promotion they had
Bumrungrad & Bangkok International are probably double price. Not sure you get much more for your money though...

Re: Ask us about Thailand!

I am arriving on in Bangkok on the 2nd. Probably staying at Dream hotel and maybe somewhere else. Plan to sightsee a little bit and then head to Chiang Mai.

Any 2+2ers in either location want to get together? This thread is lacking one epic 2+2 BKK get together.

I play 1KNL on Stars, but not too much this year plus I keep taking shots so my results are just OK, but if anyone is interested in trading coaching for showing me around BKK or something, hit me up. You can't beat an local guide that knows all the cool stuff going on in town.

Re: Ask us about Thailand!

I'm conflicted by this story.

Those who know me will know why.
