  1. I've never gone through immigration at DMK so not sure how bad it gets. I've flown in there on an internal flight through and the whole 'grab a ticket and wait for a cab' was a pain. So I may pre-book a taxi. Slightly off topic but does anyone know if they have SIM cards for sale at DMK? I've never noticed before as usually get that at BKK.
  2. Thanks for that. I've just made a reservation. I'll be arriving at just before 9pm, so I want to try and get to the hotel quick enough to be able to maybe grab a girl for the night. 555 Edit: they've come back to me and advised they have been told to suspend fast track services from DMK. Bugger.
  3. Do any of these agencies service Don Mueng? I'm going to be flying in via Air Asia in the evening so want to try find a service which offers the fast track and taxi to Sukhumvit.
  4. Sometimes when having a pad Thai I'll start off with chopsticks but by the end when it's mostly small bits I'll switch to a fork and spoon.
  5. I stayed in Mercure on my last trip and they loved it. Great vibe being in the middle of soi 11. The restaurant/bar next door is great. There are actually quite a few decent bars on soi 11 includIng Oskars. Nice sized swimming pool too. Obviously they are gf, although I didn't once get asked to sign the girl in. Literally walked straight up.
  6. The patong scene has changed a lot over the last few years. Less and less p4p in your face on lower bangla now and more general bars to cater to all demographics. The main blow has been the slow death of the tiger bars. I remember going to patong for the 1st time in 2011 and tiger was heaving front to back with bars. Still plenty of fun to be had. Especially in the discos. The one thing which puts me off about phuket though (and Samui to an extent) is how greedy the tuk tuk and taxi drivers are.

    I'd be interested to hear your findings. I try to learn written Thai, but it's at snails pace for me as I have 101 other things going on in my life. But I do enjoy trying to decipher what the girls say on Facebook without typing it into my dictionary to translate. A lot of them talk slang/improper. Makes it harder for me ha.

    goo กู

    I've seen a few Thai girls use use กู when posting stuff on Facebook. My dictionary says it's a 1st person pronoun which is 'old' and not used much now. Have to say I wasn't aware of it being impolite. I figured it's some slang version as I never see the girls on Facebook starting with ฉัน. How rude 5555.
  9. Not sure why but I really fancy the view from this hotel. But I'm wondering what will the drawbacks be. Shopping and massage joints nearby? How much of a pain will it be getting back here from lower Sukhumvit after a night of partying. Has anyone else stayed around the riverside before?
  10. I wouldn't bother tbh. That's not to say you can't have some fun though. Why not just book a room near the airport and get the girl/a girl to come To you. Some hotels might even allow you to book half a day.
  11. No. But you may find a few girls willing to offer extras for massages.
  12. Sounds promising. I've got 6 days booked here for June and can't wait. Did you manage to check out the pool? I usually stay around Asoke so looking forward to a change of scenery.
  13. I've booked there for June. Was considering the Sofitel over by Lumpini Park for a few night, as the view is spectacular. Or maybe I'll just go there for lunch one day instead.
  14. Why not just pin a topic warning any newbies that doing that sort of thing will result in a ban?
  15. Most of what I said in the chiang mai thread applies here. Some differences to bear in mind. Koh Samui is more expensive. A lot more. A cab from the airport in chiang mai will probably only be 150-200 bhat max. Depending on where you are staying expect to pay between 500 and 700 bhat on Samui. You can of course take a shared mini van with other tourists for less. The bar action is in chaweng (more lively) and Lamai (more laid back beer bar type scene). Think there are some bars in Mae naam but I've never been there. I generally find the locals more hardened and unfriendly in Koh S
  16. 1) Easiest thing is to get a taxi from the airport. Taxis in chiang mai are cheap. Just tell them what hotel you are staying at. 2) lots of places so walk around and look for the best rate. 3) Again there are lots of massage joints around, especially on Loi Kroh Road. This is thailand. 4) You should do some research on attractions in advance so you have an idea of what you want to see. Once you are there you will see plenty of tour booths who can arrange these for you. Your hotel will most likely be able to also arrange this. Im actually going to Chiang Mai in June and have drawn u
  17. I arrived at around 7am last month and the queues were quite short. I had booked a fast track meet and greet with Starlight though. If you do happen to arrive at busy time they can save you an hour or more of queueing.
  18. Ah so this is the former President Palace. I was wondered what would happen to that place. Can live with a bit of weak front desk service. I generally don't need to talk to them unless there's a problem in the room.
  19. Thanks! Been reading a bit more about this and seems this is a fairly new hotel. Bigger pool than aloft too.
  20. Just booked with Mercure. 17k bhat for 5 nights which isn't too bad. The rooms look really nice and modern. Good gym and pool too. Are there plenty of normal massage joints on soi 11? I get at least one a day .
  21. Thanks I think my shortlist for soi 11 is as follows. Grand Swiss Mercurier Solitaire Fraser Suites Have just emailed them to check they are gf. Pretty sure they are. Aloft doesn't appear to be free on booking.com but may check with them directly.
  22. Is there anything similar to Novotel Sukhumvit 20? Last few trips I've stayed there and would have no issues going back but I'd like to base myself somewhere else next time. Considering soi 11. Anyone know if Mercure or Solataire on Suk 11 are gf?
  23. Line is my thai girl go to app. May as well call it Thai Girls messenger. I don't mind them tracking me tbh. It's not like I'm up to anything sinister.
  24. OP was asking about sex after a massage. An oil massage at that which is not advisable, unless she’s going to wash the oil off his dick before putting on the condom.
  25. I’m guessing it could result in the condom coming off easier, and potentially inside the girl.
