    Hyatt Regency Sukhumvit 13 Bangkok

    Of course they don't want hookers hanging out in their lobby but this is not what this post is about. A guest bringing a hooker through the lobby to their room is not the same as hookers hanging out in their lobby. If a guest at a 5 star hotel, paying the large 5 star room price, chooses to bring a guest to their room, the hotel is not going to be concerned about.

    True. What they object to is hookers hanging out in their lobby.

    There is no way a branch of western international corporation like Hyatt is going to discriminate based on gender identification. Don't worry about it. If they do, just start to dial their international help line.
  6. If anyone is wandering around Chiang Mai looking for spicy salad check it out. I doubt it will be there long as they go back to work in the cabarets soon. https://www.chiangmaicitylife.com/citynews/local/transgender-cabaret-girls-open-spicy-salad-restaurant/

    Hyatt Regency Sukhumvit 13 Bangkok

    I stayed at that Hyatt Regency in October last year. Very nice hotel! Check out the Spectrum Rooftop bar on the top floors. Very nice. i was only there for 1 night and did not bring any guests in but I have stayed at the Grand Hyatt hotel many times and never had problems with bringing guests in (both GG and LB). During the days no problems, just up the elevators and to the room. At night time there were security at the elevators asking you to check your guest in at the front desk before you go to your room. This is best for you own security. Being part of the Hyatt group (and same with most 5 star hotels in Bangkok), i would say it would be same policy at the Hyatt Regency. There is a door into the Hyatt Regency straight off Sukhumvit Road and there is always a doorman who opens that door (day and night), so I am sure if you bring a guest, he would ask you to check them in. The main entrance is to the side where a taxi would drop you off and you walk straight past the reception desks so unless they super busy I'm sure they may ask you to check your guest in. There are a few freelancers (both girls and ladyboys) that hang out on Sukhumvit right out the front of the Hyatt Regency. I checked them out but a bit rough for my liking.

    I remember this guy wrote a trip report and detailed a stay there. Scroll down to post #25 for the Hyatt. He doesn't say if he took a girl there, however. If this Hyatt is like the Erawan Grand Hyatt it will be LB friendly but not exactly welcoming. At the Erawan GH, they made it pretty clear they frowned on LBs being in the front lobby or around the reception desk. They make girls go downstairs to a security desk to hand over their IDs and register themselves. One girl I took there was very reluctant to visit any of their restaurants or bars because of that experience. That said, the staff treated her respectfully and they never said anything to me about having ladyboys visit my room. It was LB friendly, but without a smiley face. Per your own plan, I definitely would contact them in advance and inquire about their guest policies and specifically mention the guest would be a ladyboy. Chances are, with the hospitality industry currently in economic ruin, they won't be too picky about who stays there these days LOL.

    There is a quite new Hyatt Regency hotel on Sukhumvit Soi 13 in Bangkok: https://www.hyatt.com/en-US/hotel/thailand/hyatt-regency-bangkok-sukhumvit/bkkhr . Does anybody know if this hotel is ladyboy-friendly? I know that I could ask them directly - and surely I will do it - but I would like to know if somebody stayed in that hotel and was taking overnight ladyboy guests there. Thanks in advance.
  12. thanks but I pay a small amount to renew my retirement visa each year, sometimes it's a work permit - an agent gets my 90-day reports stamped for free - no need to leave the country. I walked into Bangkok Bank 2 weeks ago, they gave me a new a/c just by seeing my tourist visa. So basically I'm paying 60-65k over the 5 years and life is dandy. - but if you're under 50 or can't find a way to stay, I can see why people would pay that much. In special circumstances, sure.

    Privelege Entry Visa (5 year multiple entry)

    You have read wrong mate. There are many other benefits but whether or not they are useful depends on the individual and their circumstances. If you looking at the cost alone then sure it is expensive but it comes with the convenience of no border runs for at least 5 years if you don’t want to leave. If you do want to leave you can leave and come back anytime as it is multi entry. Can legally open bank account, get post paid accounts on your mobile and internet etc rather than prepaid. Assistance with Thai drivers license. Free limo to and from airport. They do your 90 day reporting for you. Large discounts at major stores and duty free which is good for big purchases. This is not an exhaustive list.
  14. I've read that this elite visa is just a glorified tourist visa with no extra benefits - but if you've got the dosh, good luck

    Privelege Entry Visa (5 year multiple entry)

    That is just for one person. There are some family options available though where children I believe are cheaper.

  17. That's 260 USD a month... I guess that's just for yourself. Or are family members included?

    Privelege Entry Visa (5 year multiple entry)

    Got mine this February just gone. It works out to about 8333 a month or around 273 a day. Sure it is a large up front payment but the convenience more than makes up for it. One minor blessing of the Covid 19 situation is that we all got 6 month extensions for free which is worth 50K THB.

  20. I'll visit one day and let you know. I think it's probably just a ladyboy owned restaurant.
  21. Must be next to a petrol station: On IG go to: https://www.instagram.com/explore/locations/631884610325759/by/
  22. It's possible that a ladyboy owns the restaurant and these are her friends on opening night. Where did the pics come from? I don't see any bar or restaurant like this in that location when using the map code or searching 'ladyboy bars', closest I could find was 'Mama's Bar' near the location.
  23. "India Today" has closed a few weeks ago already I think... There's now a new bar there called "Food & Coffee"... Wondering how long it took them to come up with such a fancy name... Located next to the dee money exchange and travel office: 
  24. Searching for "ladyboy bar" in Bangkok I keep getting results for a place on Phetkasem 47, between Bang Wa and Bang Khae, on the western outskirts of Krung Thep, close to MRT station Lak Song. Google Plus Code: PC66+7H Bangkok, Thailand Looks like a restaurant to me... but with mostly ladyboys:  Is this some kind of ladyboy restaurant or ladyboy meeting point?

    Air Travel during the New Normal

    I think the ability to travel will be dictated more by governments than what airlines are saying. For instance, Thailand might say ok for Aussies to visit & airlines offer fares. However if Australia is saying we can’t leave then its fruitless.

  27. Disappointing news, artbox was a nice place in that area, something different.. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  28. "Artbox on Sukhumvit soi 10 / the land also known as Chuwit Park has proven to be popular over the past year, and managed to open before Bangkok came out of lock-down. The vendors operating at Artbox have 6-month contracts, a clear sign it is all very temporary. There have been a lot of rumours about what will happen on that piece of land and word broke this week that a giant office tower and hotel will go up. To be called The Edition Hotel Bangkok, it will be 51 storeys and dwarf most buildings in the area. Artbox will be around for a little while yet…so enjoy it while you can." https://www.stickmanbangkok.com/weekly-column/2020/06/off-the-menu/
