Is Pattaya Scam City? Tourist Trap? Thailand vs the Philippines

While I can’t really call much of the things I have seen in Pattaya ‘scams’ one thing is for sure: it is the biggest tourist trap I have been to in Asia. When comparing countries I like to compare cities to other similar cities. So for the sake of most of this post I will be comparing Pattaya to Angeles City and Sihanoukville, Cambodia because both are similar touristy type places. First lets do some quick price comparisons on a few things to see how...

What are Thai Girls Like – Month In Pattaya

Week 1 in Pattaya my mind was kind of blown about the sexyness of Thai girls’ stomachs and how much better the bodies were overall compared to Pinays. I was on cloud 9 and thinking how by the time I finish traveling it wouldn’t surprise me if I got an education visa and spent a year in Pattaya. Week 2 the luster began to fall off. It was still a good week, but I was beginning to realize some things about Pattaya that I did not...

Checked Out 5 Blowjob Bars in Bangkok

It took me a while but I eventually found something I really liked in Thailand – blowjob bars. It can be hit and miss asking an Asian girl for a blowjob, even some hookers might say no (or ask you to put a condom on) or just not be very good at it. The only sure bet for BBBJ (bareback blowjob) and CIM (cum in mouth) is to visit blowjob bars. BJ bars are particularly convenient as you can walk in, have your balls drained then continue on your night out without needing...

Finding Filipinas in Thailand? Not So Easy

Even though I am very pro Philippines there are certain things I can’t argue – Thailand has better infrastructure, internet, value for money apartments, etc. I can see why more expats want to live there. Pinay in Pattaya! While I certainly wouldn’t mind having some better food, faster wifi, or knowing that I would be at a good hospital in the case of an emergency none of those things are as important as what living in the Philippines has to offer – much nicer, friendlier, and more genuine people. Not...

Insomnia / iBar Review, Pattaya | 2016 Prices

For those that aren’t aware the main nightclub for picking up prostitutes in Pattaya is Insomnia / iBar. Upstairs is the loud fistpumper disco (Insomnia), downstairs is the more laid back hang out bar (Ibar). There are stairs inside connecting the two and they use the same VIP card. Pics via Club Insomnia Pattaya Fan Page This is considered to be the best venue to meet freelancers in Pattaya. Think High Society in Angeles City. I normally hate hooker discos but since it’s such a good pickup spot and you can get...

Q&A with Vietnam Blog SingleMansParadise

I’m a big fan of Skins’ blog and saw he’s planning a trip to the Philippines. Since it’s his first time, and I’m thinking of making my first trip to some countries he’s lived in, I thought it’d be good for us to pick each other’s brains about the countries we haven’t banged in yet. For me that’s Vietnam, and I didn’t see much of Thailand my first time there. Read my answers to his Philippines questions on his site. I’ll link some of Skins’ blogs and location reviews in his answers...

Does Living in Asia Turn You Into a Jerk?

I can already notice myself changing since living in the Philippines (and Cambodia and Thailand before that). Overall I am a very polite person that tries to always be respectful to others, even strangers. I can be a selfish bastard in some ways, but there are certain standard things I always try to do that are just general courtesies that everyone should do. But living in Asia is changing me.  So many of the people here are so rude in various ways that you can’t help but...

Buying Weed in Cambodia

If you go to Cambodia you are going to get offered drugs.  If you walk around for a couple hours you will probably be offered weed 5-10 times by tuk tuk drivers or random guys on the street. On the forums I post on people were relatively happy with the quality of weed in Cambodia (especially for the cost) as long as you inspect it when you buy. A friend bought the bud pictured above in Phnom Penh for $15, said it was great but when you...

How Not to Get Locked up Abroad

Asia is a really weird place when it comes to laws, or better yet lawlessness. There are all sorts of laws and some ridiculously stiff penalties… but do they even uphold these laws? Prostitution Take prostitution for example. In any country you go to in Asia it will technically be illegal. Yet they all have their red light districts that are packed every night. They don’t even try to hide it. Burgos Street in Makati is right in the nicest area of the Philippines. Bangkok has Soi...

Best Place to Stay in Chiang Mai as a Nomad

If you ask the best Thailand bloggers Bangkok beats Chiang Mai hands down for long term living, stuff to do (nightlife especially) and overall lifestyle. That said NomadList ranks it in #1 given the amount of hipsters digital nomads there, and I still like it for short trips. Chiang Mai accommodation is sick value for a reasonably large city. On a recent trip up there I found a good serviced apartment for monthly stays. Best Place to Stay in Chiang Mai I was in town to visit...

Finding Good Food in Asia

Someone told me the articles are a bit girl / sex heavy lately so mixing up my range with something else – finding good food in Asia! If you’re a fan of western food like me eating out can be a bit difficult sometimes. Especially when you’re served what looks like rat on a stick, rice wrapped in leaves, some chilli peppers and a jug of vinegar. That said if you ask around online you can usually be pointed in the right direction.  Walking into an unknown restaurant may...

cambodia vs thailand vs philippines women

Women – Philippines vs Thailand vs Cambodia

It can be surprising how different the women in the Philippines, Thailand and Cambodia are. Actually there are two that are polar opposites and one that is kind of in the middle. I’m not talking about looks because that’s subjective and everyone has different tastes for Asian girls.  I personally don’t find Thais that attractive, however most guys would rate Thai women the hottest of the three. But from a willingness to hook up with foreigners in casual relationships, and overall horniness level the Philippines is a 10 and Cambodia is a...

Live in Cambodia for $600 a Month

Sihanoukville was the cheapest place I’ve lived. Going by what I spent there, I’d say a westerner could live in Cambodia (Sihanoukville or elsewhere) comfortably on $600/month. Entry to Angkor Wat in Siem Reap is around $30 My expenses were around $850 a month when I lived there for 7 months, but if I went back I think I could cut that down further. Since Snooky was the first place I settled down in after the US I was in holiday mode and went a bit above...

4 Thailand Ebooks To Read

If you visit or move to Thailand – or anywhere in South East Asia really – you’re going to be tempted with so many girls and will need to know how to handle it.  They’re easily available. You may say to yourself that you aren’t the type of guy that would ever go with a hooker, but in Asia it’s different.  These aren’t drugged out skanks standing on a street corner. These are girls that have little opportunity in life and just want to get...
