Some thoughts after spending years in Bangkok.

I am lucky, or some would say sensible. But I know I am lucky.

I have been browsing the web today and came across articles about two places in Bangkok worthy of a visit if you are interested in markets selling old, peculiar, vintage and other such items.

Night Market - Rod Fai

It is great to see that many laws, rules and regulations are being enforced now after a long period of selective enforcement and sometimes a non existence regard for rules and the law. One such law prohibits people from renting condominiums by the day or week.

No Short Term Rentals

Going on from my earlier post the massage shop count in On Nut has gone up !  Now there are about 36 massage shops and spas within a few minutes walk of On Nut BTS station. Three more have opened in Sukhumvit 79 and two in Sukhumvit 50.

Many visitors to Thailand encounter bar girls and share their experiences. Whether it is in a blog, website or actual hard copy.

When you look for hard copy there are some great books around that share experiences in great depth, much more depth than a blog. But are they fact or fiction? I would say they are a mixture of both, with a leaning towards fiction based on fact.

However, I will leave you to make your own mind up - but beware, most Bar Girls are NOT going to be your real girlfriend.

I have been meaning to write about this for ages. I am lazy I suppose - not like the maids I have employed over the years that  I have been living in Bangkok.

Having lived in Bangkok for many years I struck up 'friendships' with all sorts of girls. This post is about parts of conversations I have had with Bangkok bar girls. Some are amusing, well all are amusing 555555. Names are their real names but I will not state what bars they work in or did work in, maybe you will know them?
