I’m on a business trip in Asia this month and I just happen to have a few days off, so I decided to fly to Thailand from 11 until 15 April.

 

I don’t come because of Songkran but I don’t hate it either.

I don’t come to get wet, I don’t come to keep dry. But no intention at all to be a nasty farang with a big watergun.

 

 

Wednesday 11 April

I arrive with Spring Airlines at around 5:30 PM. Walking to immigration, which took me less then 5  minutes to get through. So now for the first time in Bangkok I have to wait for my luggage.

 

Take a taxi to Raya Surawong Hotel and I’ll have a full evening in Soi Twilight. Starting with evening dinner at Dick’s Café. Soi Twilight is very busy, mainly with Asians.

 

I send Facebook message to Cambodia boy (a boy I already met during previous trip) I want to meet him at midnight, just as we agreed already for a few weeks. Hi wants to come immediately but I decline.

 

I visit Classic Boys, but my favorite boy Rak isn’t working anymore. Change bar to see a show. Back in the hotel at midnight. No sign of any Songkran waterfight tonight.

 

At midnight Cambodia boy isn’t there, so I ask him on Facebook where he is. Will leave home now. Not happy with that answer. Arrives at 12:45, and we spend the night together.

Thursday 12 April

I’m tired, so we sleep until early afternoon. Say goodbye to Cambodia boy and tell him he has to be back at midnight and bring clothes for the upcoming Pattaya trip.

 

I decided to go to Arena for a massage. Around 6 PM, I had a choice of 17 boys, a bit less then usual. Most were on the older side, at least in there thirties. Choose a boy from Isaan. Massage is very good, I leave happily but a bit disappointed: previous visits were better.

 

Walk back to the hotel via Silom Road and Patpong Market. I buy a plastic bag for my money and mobile phone,  but no watergun.

 

Evening dinner in the American restaurant on the corner of Surawong Road. Very nice one. It's the first time i eat there.

 

Want to go to Dream Boy, but is already full, so I go to Bangkok at street level. Not comparable, so I leave after 15 minutes. 500 baht not well spend…

 

X Boys is fully packed also, but I manage to get in. Show is better than last time. Boys on stage are cute. Some Chinese give a lot of money to boys in the show.

 

No sign of any Songkran activity in the soi, so I’m back at the hotel without getting wet.

 

Cambodia boy will be late again. Maybe I should buy him a watch…

Friday 13 April

 

We check out the Raya hotel at 11:00 AM and the taxi I’ve ordered is already waiting for us.

 

Trip from Bangkok to Pattaya takes 3 long hours, so we arrive at Zing Resort in Jomtien Complex just after 2PM. Taxi was hit a few times by water in Pattaya. Most of the times, a farang was leading the water fight.

 

I’m happy Cambodia boy is now with me all day and night. Some might call it a boyfriend experience.

 

We have a late lunch at Linda opposite of the road to Jomtien Complex and go to sleep for a few hours. Evening dinner at Poseidon, the best restaurant in Pattaya thanks to chef Bart from The Netherlands.

 

We end our day in one of the bars of the Jomtien Complex. No alcohol involved, as we both prefer Coca Cola.

 

No waterfights at all in the Jomtien Complex. This is definitely the place to be for Songkran haters ;)

Saturday 14 April

 

Quality time with my Cambodia boy in the morning.

 

In the afternoon, I want to have a massage so I give free time to my boy who wants to go to the beach.

 

I notice a very cute masseur at Soda Massage, so I take a 1 hour session. What a price difference between Pattaya and Bangkok. Room price here is only 300 bath. Masseur from Isaan is very good and whispers if I want extra services. I’m interested and we agree on a low fee. Service was better than what I had in Arena, and price was only half. Customer satisfaction guaranteed!

 

My boy has experienced the joy of Songkran and is completely wet when he returns.

 

Evening dinner at Poseidon again. What a great restaurant!

 

Boy wants to meet a friend who lives in Pattaya, so I give him some time off.

In the meantime, I’m a bit on this forum and writing my trip report

Cambodia boy gets a call from his sister (where he lives when he is in Thailand) he has to return immediately to Bangkok as he has the key of her appartment and she returned from Cambodia holiday.

 

Instead of returning with me from Pattaya to Bangkok in the late afternoon, he immediately jumps in a taxi in order not to cause trouble to his sister. Donn't like it, but I can understand it. I don't pay for that taxi.

 

So I'm completely free to do what I want during the last hours. I decide to go again to Soda Massage to see the masseur from yesterday. Same routine, so this is the real happy ending of this April visit.

 

Taxi to airport without any traffic jam, so I'm way too early at the airport.

 

 

Tghank you all for liking my trip report ;)
