I finally just booked my first trip to Bangkok. It will be a short trip since I can only take a total of 9 days off work.. I leave Phoenix on Wed Nov 8, and will get into Bangkok just after midnite, on the early morning of Friday, Nov 10.. I will be leaving the next Friday, Nov 17. My birthday falls on Wed the 15th, so hopefully I will have a great birthday there.. I have not booked my hotel yet.. I was wondering if anything has changed on the hotel scene lately? I am seriously considering Raya Surawong, for its location and reasonable pricing, along with its liberal visitation policy. I can get a room there for around $70 USD per night.. any other suggestions around the same price? I definitely want something in a good location, close to the boy action. I did find a few nice looking places on airbnb for less, but I figured for my first trip, it would be better to stay at a hotel until I learn my way around more..
I would love to meet up with anyone who happens to be in town during my visit. I will be traveling alone, so any company/advice, etc would be most welcome. I have made numerous trips to Rio and I love the sauna scene there, but I am anxious to experience the massage parlours and the gogo bars there in Bangkok. I tend to like the twink types, but unlike most of the members here, I prefer my twinks to be tops..
I have 8 months to build the anticipation now.. so, I welcome any input, advice, etc from all you seasoned members...and hopefully I get to meet some of you face to face..
