Last week a friend offered me a ride down to Bangkok from Chiang Mai - so took the opportunity and hastily booked a room at Raya. Can only endorse most opinions and say it is a good place to stay.  Nice size room and staff who are courteous and welcoming - especially the waiter in the breakfast room and the security man at night.

 

After the road trip and shortly after arrival I had a massage at Art next door which was most relaxing in more ways than one.

 

In the space of 3 days visited a few new places - so will offer my experiences and impressions.

 

Screwboys - one of my favourite places - mainly Viet boys, lots of twinks - learned that if you bought a bottle of whisky, mixers were free - but if you didn't finish it and left it for the following night, mixers for the second night were 1000 thb.  Maybe it was just a con and in retrospect should have just bought another bottle of whisky - but you live and learn.  Still didn't dampen my enjoyment at the venue

 

Tawan  Bar - my first visit here - stayed 15 minutes - not my scene - but you have to do some things once - my lasting memory will be of small leather pouches.

 

New G Boys - terrible - few boys when I went - I spent most of the time concentrating on my beer - maybe it is still finding its feet

 

Classic Boys - at the very end of Soi Twilight - about 10 boys -  a couple worth a second glance - creepy mamasan who seemed to hover over my shoulder for the time I was there - a couple of reasonable routines in the show - especially the underwater pool sequence

 

Moonlight - 2 visits -  the super models seem to take most of the attention if you like that sort of thing - I agree they do put a bit of effort into their routines which is commendable - some of the routines are a little bizarre eg the wedding  -  but for me the boys in the red shorts are much more appealing - especially enjoyed their group dance to Michael Jackson song at the end of the night and the small guy desperately trying to hide his boner with his hand.  Invited a first nighter to come and sit with me - (sigh)

 

Happy Beer Garden and Restaurant - been mentioned in another post recently - for me the food was ordinary (ok there was seafood) but way way expensive for what you get

 

GC - went to see if a friend was there - he has worked there for a few years and been a little unwell lately - asked the boys present about him - unhelpful, rude, dismissive

 

When I was there last week word got around that police were cracking down on some of the workers and quite a few of the Viet boys headed home - no doubt they will be back next week.

 

Also played pool in the bar opposite X size one night - talked to a Viet guy - incredibly handsome - was going to start work at Classic next day

 

As mentioned at the beginning only my impressions - as has been suggested you have to go and find out for yourself  - you never never no - if you never never go

 

Cheers

Great report!

Echo what you say about Raya and GBoys.

Good to hear you had fine time a that Art Massage location. Although I patronize the Art stops on other side of Surawong, they all seem to be working off same business model that bodes well for the group.

I've heard the same from Viet guys about scattered crackdowns that don't affect guys from Cambodia, Laos and Myanmar but does indeed target them. As with most of these sweeps, they seem to come and go in phases. I know two who are returning home for visits later this month in addition to one who who left last week.

It's encouraging to see how many members are visiting Bkk off season and--more important--sharing their experiences.

Is G Boys still open?

I found it by accident one night and a tout tried to get me to enter the bar. I distinctly remember the sign outside the bar.

I walked along Suriwong Road a few times after that, looking for the sign but I didn't see it. The tout had disappeared, too.

Thanks for the report Musgrave

 

Screwboys - one of my favourite places - mainly Viet boys, lots of twinks - learned that if you bought a bottle of whisky, mixers were free - but if you didn't finish it and left it for the following night, mixers for the second night were 1000 thb.  Maybe it was just a con and in retrospect should have just bought another bottle of whisky - but you live and learn.  Still didn't dampen my enjoyment at the venue

 

Do you remember what you paid for the original mixer setup and what brand & size it was?

Also can the boys (or staff) drink for free or is there a charge?

 

I was there last month and quoted 1500 for a "bottle" of 100 pipers and all mixers free ... which i thought was pretty reasonable (cheaper than pattaya!) especially as there were 3 of us

It was my last night andwe were leaving at the time so never got to go back and actually open a bottle!

 

A few days earlier we were quoted for similar in Zaab Cafe (in Pattaya) and the whiskey that turned up was only 500ml and the "free" mixers stopped after 4 bottles and a tiny bucket of ice!

yes - G Boys still open last week - the tout was out on Surawong Rd but my companions knew where it was.

 

If I recall correctly it was 100 Pipers - normal size not 1 litre - and @1500 thb - boys could share freely - don't think they got a ticket though like they do when you buy them an individual drink.

 

Incidentally I was somewhere else recently and a bucket of ice was 20 thb
