    Actual Massage places

    I use the same salon Oliver (across Viva cafe) for many years. My masseuse Oy is not there anymore but I had a very good thai massage - 1 hour 300B - in January. I went with a thai lb, we each had our masseuse, and her verdict was : good place.

  3. Are you member of the Pattaya Forum Dhana ? There is a trove of information in the Pattaya forum - as it should be, many expats or would-be expats in this forum - about the process to retire in Thailand. Just type "retirement" or "visa" in the search function/button. Or take a deep look at the "Living in Thailand" topic or in the chit chat one. https://www.ladyboyspattaya.com/forum/89-living-in-thailand/

    Air China

    It's not only Air China. Since the end of the Covid crisis, Airline companies twist their schedules and rotations for a number of good and bad reasons (not enough planes, lack of employees, rentability, ...). Client not happy ? Cancelling ? They don't care, they make so much money. 2023 will be a great year for the travel industry. From IATA (International Air Transport Association) (June 2023) : Airline industry net profits are expected to reach $9.8 billion in 2023 (1.2% net profit margin) which is more than double the previous forecast of $4.7 billion (December 2022). Airline industry operating profits are expected to reach $22.4 billion in 2023, much improved over the December forecast of a $3.2 billion operating profit. It is also more than double the $10.1 billion operating profit estimated for 2022.
  6. I used Orange Taxi Service in August. 1200 B including tolls and no problem. Drivers on time, good cars. Difficult to tell. If it is an usual week-end you will have all Bangkok going Pattaya on friday afternoon/evening. The Bangkok exit will be difficult, after that it should be an easy drive. On a sunday afternoon it took me 2 hours. For you I would say between 2 and 3 hours. It would be good to get your feedback. Anyway you will be there for a great night. Lbs bars : New Bar, Delirious bar, Bon Bar, all the others on Buakhao, Katoeys'r us on WS ... If you have questions ...

    Air China

    5 or 6 year ago I had a fly to Chengdu on Air China. During the night one lady was watching movies on her tablet. The sound on, without earphones. I stopped a flight attendant : could she ask the lady to put the earphones ? The flight attendant was embarrassed : sorry sir, I can do nothing. People here (cf in China) do as they want. The price will have to be very good to choose Air China again.
  8. Dynasty Inn, 5 4 Sukhumvit Road Soi 4 Nanatai Klongtoey, Bangkok, Thailand, Bangkok 10110 I was at the Dynasty Inn hotel 3 nights at the beginning of August 2019. I didn't find any review about this hotel which seems little discussed in this forum, contrary to the Dynasty Grande. Why you (and I) would choose this unassuming little hotel (around 60 rooms)? To be in the heart of the action. At your right, count 60 meters to Nana Plaza via Hillary 4 and the Stumble Inn. If you take on your left, Hillary 2 is at 30 meters. The reviews are good (8.3 on Booking) and this hotel is of course guest-friendly. I asked for a non-smoking room at the back of the hotel (quiet rooms). 1 680 baht a night for 2 people. I didn't take the breakfast. At the entrance of the hotel, the front bar gives you a look at the scene. Very useful to give a rendez-vous to a lb, take a drink and evaluate the chemistry. At night a few ladyboys stand on the sidewalk. Food from the restaurant is known to be good. I didn't test it. At the front desk, the hotel staff is friendly and helpful. It's a big plus. The people make the place. No walk of shame. Your guest will let its ID at the reception. At the check-in they ask for a 500 baht cash deposit for the key. The back annexe seems to face the rear of Nana Plaza but in the room there is no noise of music or whatever. The room is quite new, clean and large. 26 square meters. Aircon works well, a bit noisy. Comfortable big bed, safe (laptop friendly), fridge, ... Fast wifi. Complimentary water, coffee. Bathroom is modern and clean with a hand hose. All lbs of Nana Plaza know the hotel and will be happy to make the short walk for a session. So no short-time room to pay. All in all I was positively surprised by the quality of this 3 star hotel, clean nice room, friendly staff, located in the heart of the action. I was pleased all the time I spent in that room, feeling well. Recommend strongly. Note: Dynasty Grande, on Soi 6, belongs to the same owner and has pool and gym. Around 300/350 baht more expensive by night. Same kind of rooms. Better lobby, front desk not so friendly. Pictures : - the entrance of the hotel from soi 4, see the bar. - The room with the bed, flat tv, safe. The bathroom. The mirror (ladyboy not included in the package).

    Dynasty Inn, Sukhumvit Soi4

    I don't smoke so perfect little hotel for me. Best location, similar to Nana hotel in the heart of action. Perfect if you don't need relaxing by a pool or lifting weights. Bar was a plus though I don't know if it has reopened too.

    Dynasty Inn, Sukhumvit Soi4

    Dynasty Inn Soi 4 is re-opening. Email from the Management with rates and info : "Thank you for your kind interest to stay at Dynasty Inn Bangkok. Yes sir, our hotel is opening and ready to welcome our value guests again. The rooms at our hotel are non-smoking room only and the rate as follows: Standard 1,280 Baht/Night ** At main BLD.; room size 20 sq.m with queen bed** Deluxe 1,680 Baht/Night ** At main BLD.; room size 32 sq.m with king bed** Standard New 1,580 Baht/night **At back BLD.; room size 26 sq.m with queen bed** Deluxe New 1,880 Baht/night **At back BLD.; room size 32 sq.m with king bed** Occupancy is 2 persons per room, extra person will be 300 Baht charged. (Standard room maximum stay 2 person only) Please make a reservation in advance by fill up the form below, thank you." In August and December 2019 I paid 1680 Baht/Night for the Standard New at Back 26 sq.m. Now it's 1580 Baht. Maybe there are taxes to add.

    Syama Nana

    Thanks for the info. Syama reviews on Booking and Trip are not good to say the least and the hotel has never been discussed here in this forum. Can I ask why you chose Syama in the first place ? Location and price ?

    KLW, I know you dont post here anymore but in case sometimes you still lurking I'd like to know how you are now (HBV) and what happened with your wife and son. You were a damned great poster/member.
  13. No, the Climax night club was at the Ambassador hotel, Suk 11 too. Same group as Hillary bars. Closed around 2018. Before Hillary 11, at the corner, it was Marshmallow bar & restaurant I think. Not sure.
  14. Send pm to KendoUk. He is a great mod for both forums and will help you.

    WTF ? No War

    Ukraine Flag / No War in a 2009 thread How that possible ?

    WTF ? No War

    Situation on the front (of Swadee TR) is evolving.

    WTF ? No War

    I have nothing to do with the Flag/No War apparition here (and I support the Ukrainian side). This Ukrainian flag pic is in the "My First" thread from 2009, you can look at it in Trip Reports. I like TRs and I was looking forward to reading the first TR ever published in this forum. It is this one and someone added this flag. Who I don't know. When I don't know. I'd like to know what happened. Is it one mod ? Was it a hack ? Just curious.

    No sorry. Sheraton Grande had some reviews in the past If I remember well, great hotel.

    Bangkok best hotel

    Landmark and Sofitel are great hotels. But for the same prices you will get a much bigger room in Mercure soi 11 or Adelphi Suites soi 8 - I would say 30 sqm / 50 sqm - Depends what you prefer (I prefer the bigger room). Discreet ??? Are you scared of being seen by someone you know with a ladyboy while coming back to your hotel ? Well ... It can happen. I once met a work mate in Nana Plaza. I didn't know he was in Thailand. I was alone, just coming back from a short time session with a ladyboy in a Nana Plaza short-time room. Hmmm. To avoid that : - Take a session in the short time room of the bars (Cindy's, CIB, Chaos 9, Why Not all have short time rooms upstairs). - Barfine the girl and tell her to be in 30 mins at your hotel. Give her your room number. Come back first to your hotel and tell the receptionist a guest will be there soon and that she can go up to your room. - Book a girl with Smooci or another escort agency or Thaifriendly. She will go to your room.

    Hua Hin

    Centara is a colonial style hotel, a wonderful one obviously. The beach, the town. Good services. I understand there are also excellent restaurants in Hua Hin, outside the hotel - Everest, indian restaurant, five mins from the hotel, sea-food restaurants in the night market, etc.

    Hua Hin

    OK. Tips from the 2 threads by different posters. Thread Hua Hin : June 2022 : Soi Bintabaht is pretty dead but I am sure there is a few massage places with LB's.. Did see a pretty nice looking LB exiting the Hilton one evening so they are around. Soi 84 Cindy at Saowanee massage and apple salon. This place in Poon Suk road, close to Hilton Hotel. She gave good massage and she definitely good top. Puang Pen Villa Hotel. Close to the beach and the nightlife. Nice and clean hotel at an affordable rate and very nice staff. Only stayed at the Hilton and centera grand in that part of town but was with company so do not know if either is guest friendly. As mentioned before I did spot a good looking ladyboy leave the Hilton a few weeks back so they do allow guests but I don't know if you have to pay a fee have stayed at the Hilton & the Centara next door, great hotels on the beach & worth the splurge if it's within your remit. Only stayed the 1 night at the Centara. There was a big golf tournament going on so most rooms were booked so it cost £110 a night this was last month. probably cheaper now. The breakfast buffet had everything you could concievably wish for and was all you can eat. Grounds are nice and historical. Definatly worth doing at least once. If staying for a week or more it's worthwhile upgrading to the 'club' option (or whatever they call it these days!)...this gives you a more private breakfast area with special chef prepared meals such as eggs benedict, all day snacks, light meals in the evening & the happy hour 5-7pm.. From thread 2019 : I stayed at Anchan hotel and spa, nice place but not the cheapest and Patty stayed over so ladyboy friendly. Alin Hua Hin soi 57 just opposite Poon Suk Road. I've seen Alin 6 or 7 times now and she never disappoints. If your looking for super feminine look elsewhere, but if you want a good pounding a great massage and excellent take care then read on. Alin9955 on TF.
