In most other touristy places in Thailand, in the likes of Chiang Mai, Hua Hin and Pattaya, there are businesses which clearly exist for locals and for whom the sight of a white man walking Hands Of Time (Bumpin Retro Mix) the door would make the staff nervous, for the ability to speak English was never part of their job description. It seems that almost all of Patong, Karon and Kata — the three most popular beaches — are entirely about tourism.
There's nothing for the locals. Thais don't live there. Thais don't shop there. Thais don't use any services there. Thais work there — and that is all they do. Patong is hardly representative of Phuket as a whole. But competition has kept a lid on prices and the reputation Phuket had for being pricey is not entirely justified today, at least in terms of hotels and eating out — if you shop around.
But perhaps Patong's reputation for being pricey could be put another way. If you're a cheap Charlie looking to cut corners on most everything, staying in a sub baht room, eating on the street and buying beer at 7 Eleven — meaning that you live comfortably on less than 1, baht a day as is quite possible in Pattaya or Bangkok's Khao San Road area, Patong is not the place for you. You probably could, if you really looked around, but it would not be as easy as it would be elsewhere.
Patong Beach is not too expensive if you take the time to do your research and look around. But neither is it cheap Charlie friendly. I guess that rents are out of control, hence the higher prices. Branches in other parts of the island, away from the west coast beaches, have the same prices you find in Bangkok.
The biggest complaint that many foreign visitors have had about Phuket is the public transport and it remains a nightmare. There are no public transport options to take you from one beach to another and instead you need to hire private transport, such as tuktuks, to make the trip. Tuktuk drivers request amounts for short trips that are insulting, and way more than you would pay for a taxi in the West to go a similar distance. I had an appointment over at Karon Beach and I just knew it would be a mission getting there.
I don't fancy myself riding a motorbike myself — which can be rented for — baht per day — and I just knew the tuktuk drivers would talk silly money. To go to the northern end of Karon Beach from the southern end of Patong Beach, a journey of just 6 km, I was quoted baht! Attempts to negotiate the price were met with scorn, derision and then abuse. The tuktuk drivers of Patong are doing their utmost to preserve the dreadful reputation they have earned.
Eventually I managed to convince a motorcycle taxi rider to take me for baht, but under the condition that he also collected me and take me back. It was the cheapest option. As we were whizzing over the hill to Karon, he pointed to some houses up on the hill at Patong with sea views, and pointed out one, telling me that it was his property.
A modest house to be sure, but the views over the bay must be magnificent. Yep, some of these houses aren't owned by Western millionaires, but by motorcycle taxi riders! Could it really be that a motorcycle taxi rider could make enough money to buy such a property with views over Patong Bay? In the 5 years it has been since I last visited Phuket, I have probably been to Pattaya about 30 times.
Phuket and Pattaya were never quite like chalk and cheese, but there were many differences — from what was available, to prices to the type of tourist that visited. These days Phuket and Pattaya share many similarities and you'd have to say that they have more in common than ever. There's a lot to like about Phuket and in some aspects what's on offer is first class. I do have to say though that when I left I didn't have any great desire to return in a hurry. I know I'll have a good time when I go back, but if I was never to visit again, well, I really wouldn't be bothered.
Phuket remains an interesting place to visit with nice beaches and plenty to keep tourists happy, but it's not my favourite place in Thailand like it used to be. In terms of nightlife, Phuket is not nearly as developed or sophisticated as Bangkok or Pattaya, but the vibe is good and the sleaze factor that is omnipresent in all but the most expensive venues in Bangkok and Pattaya is largely absent.
For naughty boys, a good time most certainly can be had in Phuket. Last week's photo. Where was this photo taken? Last week's photo was taken outside of a small shop located below the Thonglor skytrain station. After weeks of easy photos, this one proved difficult and only 4 people got it right. The first person to email me with the correct location of the photo wins a baht credit at Oh My Codthe British fish and chips restaurant.
The second person to get it right wins a baht voucher from one of the best farang food venues in Bangkok, and the home of Bangkok's best burgerin my humble opinion, Duke's Express. Duke's is conveniently located in the Emporium shopping centre in central Bangkok. For readers in Phuket, we now have a new prize provider in Patong Beach.
Bliss Lounge on Bangla Road is offering a baht drink credit and with some great imported beers from Belgium, Germany and Holland, they're unique for a venue on Bangla Road. The Bliss Lounge prize must be claimed within 3 months. Prizes are only available to readers in Thailand at the time of entering and are not transferable. Prize winners cannot claim more than one prize per calendar month.
You only have one guess per week! If you wish to claim a prize, you must state a preference for the prize you prefer, or list the prizes you would like in order of preference — failure to do so results in the prize going to the next person to get the photo right. Preference may be given to emails which refer to the previous week's column. The real appeal of Bangkok to me is, as you point out, the ability to choose between high-end and cheap, and the mix of East and West.
The best here is as good as the best anywhere. Bangkok is still exotic, but it also has the familiarities of the West. It might be more difficult to find the diversity of character in different areas of the city, in the way that you can in New York City or London, although a few do exist, Hands Of Time (Bumpin Retro Mix).
The expressway system in Bangkok also makes it much easier to travel over vast areas of the city very quickly — the only places I am aware of with a comparable system are LA and to a lesser extent Tokyo. The rail systems are still far too short, but that will change in the next 10 or being Thailand, 20 years. Yes, there are downsides — all too often we get third world service at first world prices, much of the city is still filthy compare it to Auckland, Stick!
The smell from the drains and klongs can make you heave. But overall, yes, it's a decent place to be. Many people complain about all the craziness during Songkran. This year was my second time and I thought it was a lot of fun. We live in an area of Bangkok with few foreigners. Although I was a little apprehensive about driving at this time, I actually enjoyed it. The traffic was a lot lighter than usual and it was pretty smooth sailing on busy thoroughfares like Rachada, Nawamin and Lad Prao Road.
Many places people had set up cones on the street so you were warned. Pick up trucks with water barrels and revelers rock up and bombs away. Looked like everybody was having a good time. My wife and I had water guns in the car so we had our share of fun too.
On the 14th we went to RCA which was a madhouse, but hilarious. Now I know what it's like to get a bucket of iced water down your back. I would be totally on your side about the excessive water fights and all but I'm wondering, have you just once, given up and joined the water throwers? I hated Songkran. If you're on your bike, nobody is going to care about your feelings, so just get off it for a day and join the fun.
Most people who die are probably the drunken idiots driving with no helmet or the ones talking on their phone while getting water shot in their faces.
If you wear a helmet with a visor, you don't feel a thing. It's the one day of the year we farangs can act like 5-year old kids with no conscience as well! It's amazing! Known Yakuza cannot leave the country. Known meaning any who have served time or any who have been registered with the NPA as known members.
A general assumption which usually holds true is any member who has full tattoos are mostly lower ranking gang members and have invariably done time. How do I know this? Well my father in-law is a Yamaguchi-gumi boss. He graduated from Tokyo university, has no tattoos but is known to the NPA and thus was not allowed to leave the country for our wedding.
So who were the guys in Nana Plaza? Hmm, no idea but I am sure most foreigners would not know what real Yakuza tattoo looks like. ThaiFriendly is an Asian Dating Site like no others! We were asked to pay 20 baht last year for taking a photo of Wat Arun from part of a soi some Thais considered "theirs".
Two weeks ago at a family funeral, locals were incensed I had taken their photo. They were afraid I would put it on Facebook. This was in rural Surin where not many even have a camera, Hands Of Time (Bumpin Retro Mix).
They were gambling though, but a blind eye is turned at funerals in the countryside. As they were on the Mrs. No faces were visible anyway. I have noticed a marked reluctance in Thais wanting pics taken by foreigners, and this in a land where having photos taken is an obsession. I was on Walking Street the other night, taking photos of the infinite visual information flowing along.
It's sort of like standing next to Niagara Falls in terms of the amount of visual information. Anyway, while taking some wide shots of the Walking Street panorama, the neon, the tens of thousands etc, one of the hefty Russian girls in long dresses standing in front of a Russian nightclub came charging at me and tried to grab my little camera, screaming that I was not allowed to take photos!
After I told her to fxxx off, she screamed at me in her lovely Russian accent that she was going to have me arrested by the Thai police, at which point I thought the only appropriate response was to give her the finger and tell her to go back to Russia. At that point I moved on, resisting the temptation to stand immediately in front of the Russian female wolf pack, turn on the flash and snap a few hundred digital photos until they all went completely berserk! Coming back through Swampy last night, I saw a sign at one of the duty shops for a well-known brand of scotch at a promotion price.
I grabbed a bottle and a couple of other items and proceeded to the check out. I noticed as the girl scanned the scotch I was charged the normal price. I politely alerted her to this. Without even lifting her eyes or saying a word to me, she entered a promo code on the register which gave the correct discount as per their advertising.
I then asked a friend I travelled with to accompany me to another outlet at Swampy so he could make a purchase and the EXACT same thing happened. I know asking the sales girls would have been met with no regret or truthful explanation so I will clearly state what the truth is.
This duty free store is scamming its customers. I called another friend who was returning this very morning and asked her to buy a few items at the airport and explained why. She called me and advised that of 4 items advertised as promotion, not ONE, yes, not one, was correctly priced when scanned and when the staff were confronted with this the excuse was computer error! Absolute rubbish as the girls enter promotion codes manually. The front of the bar has been redone and there is now an open area out front where smokers can congregate.
The Big Mango is a nice spot if you're looking for somewhere quiet, away from the craziness of soi 4. Drinks are inexpensive, as is the food which most people give the thumbs up to. The katoeys at the mouth of Nana Plaza are becoming more and more of a pain. But these days they can be found attempting to accost those entering the plaza from early evening, even before it's dark. They're a real menace and it has to be said that the fact that Soi Cowboy is almost entirely ladyboy free is part of its attraction.
What ever happened to "Voice", the iconic Nana Plaza bar greeter who has worked at various bars in the plaza? Doing a run through the plaza this week it dawned on me that Hands Of Time (Bumpin Retro Mix) haven't seen him for quite some time.
I think the last bar he worked at was G Spot but he has not been there in, I guess, a year or more. I kinda miss his raspy voice spouting out such silly comments as " Take care your wife "…when you're walking past his bar with a bunch of your mates! For those on a budget, or simply those who prefer draft beer, the beer bar outside Pretty Lady Bar on the ground floor of Nana is still doing Leo draft for 49 baht — and that very reasonable price can be had all night long.
But while some in Bangkok decry price increases that now see many bars offering a small bottle of beer for around baht, some venues offering cheap drinks don't get the support you might expect. The balcony bar outside the short time hotel in Nana Plaza which is just along from Mandarin has signs advertising beer at 59 baht all night long — yet I don't think I have seen a single person drinking there!
Soi Cowboy was again the backdrop for filming this week. On Wednesday night a French film crew was filming scenes for what looked like it was a comedy.
And Soi Cowboy was positively booming on Friday night of this week. I don't know if I have seen it that busy before — and the couple of bars I popped in to had throngs of customers with some almost fighting to get the last empty seat! Anzac Day Australia and New Zealand Army Corp is a national public holiday and is considered one of the most spiritual and solemn days of the year.
Boss Greg promises to make this a special occasion for all of our mates Down Under. Spasso's has been a popular late night spot for longer than I can remember, in fact longer than I have been living in Bangkok. Being on the ground floor of one of the city's best — and most pricey — 5-sar hotels, Spasso's isn't cheap. There's an baht entry fee which gets you two free drinks.
For those on a budget or those watching their pennies, note that no entry fee is charged on Sunday night. You still have the band, still have all of the lovelies, still have their excellent home-grown cocktails — and there are far fewer local expats to compete with! If you saw a burly Kiwi bounding down Sukhumvit Road at AM yesterday morning being yelled obscenities at by a white-skinned, wannabe hi-so Thai bird in a flash SUV, then I can fill in a few details.
A mate — the burly kiwi, not the wannabe hi-so bird — met the bird in one of Bangkok's more salubrious late night spots. They enjoyed a number of drinks together and as it was getting late, being the gentleman that he is, and not wanting a damsel to spend the night alone, he invited her back to his condo.
He thought they would be off to the taxi stand but it turns out that she had driven to the venue, so into her flash, top-end SUV and off they head, bound for his condo. She had been drinking and when he saw a police checkpoint ahead he just knew there would be trouble. She was brethalyzed and found to be over the legal limit. Drink driving is a serious issue in Thailand and while not that common, there is a chance of jail time.
After some serious numbers were mentioned for the problem to disappear, my mate, once again proving to be a gentleman, offered to assist. So here we have a hooker who had had too much to drink, caught driving over the legal alcohol limit.
She had managed to get away with it by paying off the cops, money provided to her by a guy she had only met a few hours earlier. You'd think she would be grateful but gratitude is not a word commonly heard when the subject is Thai hookers. She had a moment and started freaking out in the car about how he had failed to protect her! He could see that no good would come of being with her so when the SUV stopped at red lights, he jumped out and ran down the road. She followed him, pulled up alongside him and yelled a tirade of abuse at him from the truck!
She then had the charm to say that she was going to go to a police station, call her father who she claimed was some big shot and get Daddy to make problems for him.
Ungrateful wench! You've really got to wonder about this lot! There's yet another scam to be aware of in Thailand. If someone asks to borrow your phone, or just merely play with it, watch very closely what they do with it. They may not even make a call — and they don't need to as that is Hands Of Time (Bumpin Retro Mix) part of the scam.
What they actually do is use a feature to transfer some, or all, of the credit from the prepaid SIM card in your phone to theirs! So be careful of anyone who wishes to use or examine your mobile!
I personally didn't see the article but apparently in the Thai press this week was a piece about a Thai guy caught jerking off on the skytrain while standing next to an attractive girl! She noticed when he actually ejaculated on the floor! Dear oh dear. In major cities around the world, tall buildings or towers with a viewing area are often popular tourist attractions. Bangkok's tallest building is Baiyoke 2 in the Pratunam area and is in excess of metres.
There's a viewing area which provides magnificent views of the city and on a clear day, admittedly not too often in Bangkok, you can see the far reaches of the city. Baiyoke 2 is centrally located, not difficult to get to and not expensive to go up, yet not that many seem to make it.
It's worth checking out to get a great view and very much a different perspective of Bangkok to what you get on the ground. Some American readers have reported difficulties getting a seat from the States to Bangkok. It seems that some of the major air carriers from the USA have canceled flights to Narita in Japan due to the nuclear power plant situation and the drop in demand to travel that leg. This is frustrating because it seems that the leg between Japan and Bangkok has plenty of free seats with fewer Japanese flying to Bangkok at the moment.
I used the airport link for the first time this week and have to say that while I was somewhat satisfied, I am not sure I would recommend it for everyone. As opposed to a minute taxi ride to the airport which would have cost baht or so, I took a combination of the skytrain and the airport link, which took just a little longer, for the grand total of 65 baht. The airport link works well if — and this is a big if — you don't have much baggage. If you do, a taxi will almost certainly be more convenient and as such a better option.
Taxis are dirt cheap in Bangkok and unless you're on an incredibly tight budget, taxis are still the preferred option. Hands Of Time (Bumpin Retro Mix) in Europe are screaming at restrictions placed on the import of some Thai vegetables and fruits to the EU in February because of toxin levels far above EU limits. Thais in Europe are complaining about the non-availability of Thai products and the subsequent difficulty in making authentic Thai food.
Get between a Thai and their food at your peril! I never thought I would say it, but I'm considering getting an Ipad.
