  1. I'm also a fan of Big Dogs, for the same reasons as OTS, who I've joined at the Big Dogs rail to watch the talent arrive.

    Current Bangkok Clinics ?

    I'm not sure this is a fair statement. There's no empirical evidence that this is the case. Teno-Em, the Thai generic version of Truvada, has been found to pass chemical equivalence tests, and clinical trials have found its effectiveness identical to Truvada. Gilead would love people to believe that generics are not as effective, but there's no evidence for that claim. If you're more comfortable taking the branded version, go for it, but evidence does not indicate that it's either more powerful (they are chemically identical) or more reliable (the equivalence testing samples from many batches).

    Current Bangkok Clinics ?

    Yes. Physicians will tell you to take PrEP for 7 days before any protection is effective. Then take daily, and take for at least 2 days after your last sexual encounter. https://www.pulse-clinic.com/prep/how-to-take-prep/

    Rembrandt Hotel Suites and Towers

    I've not stayed there, but the Indian restaurant on the top floor is first class. I visit often.

    Pulse Clinic - ASOK!

    Thanks. I'm actually in the market for Tafero-Em. Teno-Em has the nasty kidney-liver side effects that I'm trying to avoid. I'll check Chula pharmacy in case they also carry Tafero-Em.

    Pulse Clinic - ASOK!

    Thanks. I am hoping to avoid the generic versions of Truvada, as they have much stronger effects on liver and kidney functioning. I may check with the pharmacy that's around the corner from the Pulse clinic.

    Pulse Clinic - ASOK!

    A question: do most of the BKK pharmacies carry PrEP drugs? I checked with PULSE Clinic on their price for Tafero-Em (emtricitabine 200mg + tenofovir alafenamide 25mg) and they quoted 2,200 baht per bottle, which is double what it costs via mail in the US. I'm hoping I can find it for closer to the US$35 price. If not, is there a recommended pharmacy that would have a variety of PrEP drugs?

    Sukhumvit -2nd guest no charge?

    Had no charge at Citrus Suites Soi 6 for two guests.

    Citrus Suites Sukhumvit Soi 13

    Many thanks, SAG and OTS. I think the absence of a pool would be a deal-breaker for me. Schlepping across the way to use a pool doesn't really work, as I have enjoyed running from my room to the jacuzzi with my LB guests in the evening at the Soi 6 location. Weather permitting, I'm poolside reading and listening to music for an hour or two every day.

    Citrus Suites Sukhumvit Soi 13

    Can anyone compare the Citrus Suites 11 and 13 with Citrus Suites Soi 6? I'm fond of the Soi 6 location; just a short walk to Chaos 9, Nana, and CIRB as well as the Be there soon. . Thanks.

    The 5th capital sin...

    Heartbreaking that Gaggan has closed. It was exceptional (although I never felt it was a top 10 in the world restaurant). I come to BKK frequently, and generally avoid Pattaya. The main reason for preferring BKK is restaurants. BKK has so many fabulous places for food. It's become a foodie vacation destination. Nothing beats having a world-class meal followed by a world-class LB for dessert.
  12. Let's see...CIB, no need for an "air"plane...could it possibly, maybe be...ummmmm...Airlin?
  13. The Nana clinic is not open yet. It's under construction. For now, stick with the Silom clinic: https://www.pulse-clinic.com/silom/

    Citrus Suites Sukumvit Soi 6

    Yes. However, if you ask the desk to send your guest up, they will do so without your having to come downstairs. Frankly, I prefer this added level of security. At the Majestic Grande, I had a couple of ladyboys who had been to my room early in my visit show up uninvited/unannounced later. Not at all cool.
