I'm sure Gaybutton will forgive me for posting this thread from his site. Can't help but wonder what members of this Board will think of this experience?

Thank god that a Pattaya resident has FINALLY realised that there is life (and sex .....and free sex at that) outside of the pattaya bubble.  I've been saying this for years and some just cant' imagine it and I think their own self worth has dropped that low that they figure ( incorrectly) that thats all they'll ever be able to get now - they're wrong - there's a whole big world out there and its definitely worth checking it out sometimes ! 

 

PS....."topped me in his prison officer uniform" no less.....now there's the start of a good porn movie scene if there ever was one ! :)

Geez, free sex from a 25 years old prison officer, sounds like a dream to me. Does the poster a well known trustworthy poster that we can believe that his story is true i wonder? Im not gaybutton readers obviously lol

After a string of disappointing experiences during his time in Pattaya, he's apparently enjoying  a run of consistently positive GR experiences that rival anything I recall reading before. I wish him continued good fortune.

 

In a recent post on GB's board, he describes an unusual event: the management of his 3,000 bht per night hotel (not named but said to be near Lumpini Park) asked him to check out prematurely because he was bringing guests back to his room. He complied and reports choosing the Siam Heritage Hotel on Surawong which, it  turns out, collects 900 bht joiner's fee.  In 16 years of visits, never had this kind of problem so guess I've just been lucky.

 

Btw, Wikipedia reports that there are three accepted spellings for Bangkok's main park: Lumphini, Lumpini or Lumpinee).

Just to add to that in Bangkok Gay Romeo isn't the only app where opportunities to meet regular (non-money boy) guys can be found.  Hornet is also an easy place to meet guys.  I'm sure Grindr is but I always think of that as more for short-term hookups.

It was an interesting read. However, I have a longstanding rule: ignore the sex tales. They are so seldom true. This tale may be true but I'll change nothing in my vacation based on it.  I have decided to try the apps this coming trip.  But, not in Bangkok as I'll be there only three days and there is a lot more to do than send messages back and forth. I'll just pick up a cute Viet twink at Screwboy with these guidelines: 1. I know he's a moneyboy 2. knowing that it's up to me to discuss the price and be done with it and 3. it's also up to me to discuss what we will do and 99.9 % of the time it all works out.

I hold a contrary opinion.
Sex tales by Vinapu and Christian simply cannot be ignored. And by many others too...

 He paid 3000 baht. I think unlikely you get rooms at the Dusit for that price. Could be be the Crowne Plaza I reckon. Or even the Montien which had a no joiners policy when I stayed there.

I'm sorry my tales are coming across as boastful about my conquers, that's not my intention. I rather try to present them as prescription for fun and lust filled vacations. Since I tend to identify boys by their nicks or numbers I try to keep particulars about intimacies to a minimum. Who wants to read about discussions of municipal elections in Udon Nowhere anyways?

Expedia lists availability in Dusit Thani for Monday (27th) for $104 in its annex building (behind but attached to main building). I've seen rates there as low as $87 in past.

Christian and Vinapu give easily understood recounts of their trips or experiences with an air to inform and render assistance to fellow travellers. I have never felt even a tiny amount of bragging about them. I give full credit to them and keep up with Christian's blog all the time.

 

There are others who give such convoluted tales that even their hotel information does not ring true.  I take these tails with a huge pinch of salt. I treat them as novellas.

as long as I remember there were always occasional warnings on forums  about Siam Heritage being hotel which is charging joiners fees or denying them access so that part is not surprising me at all

87 $ , that is what I pay for 3 nights at Nantra Silom and no problem with guests day or night, even multiple ones.

Vinapu, the Nantra Silom looks nice and appears very conveniently located. I see various types of rooms are they nice? I saw one room, deluxe, that looked like it was two twin beds together - as they used to do in Europe.

Yes, and also about the Montein.

 

Have taken 3 different guys to Dusit Thani in recent years and never had a problem.. The doorman usually nods and smiles.

 

In any case, it closes Jan. 1 and the replacement (part of a commercial, hotel and condo complex on a larger footprint) will take 5 years to build.

The Nantra is a comfortable budget hotel in a convenient location.    

 

I just wish the cleaning was a little more diligent, since I'm fussy about that and it's about at the limit of what I accept.  But it still remains on my list of "approved" hotels.

it pretty basic but modern although bit spartan hotel and I like it a lot - good value for money.

 

They have three types of room , cheapest one is windowless and 1 single bed only. No issue with their beds and as far as I can see whenever I'm there I put them to a good use / I off almost exclusively long time  /.

 

They even serve free breakfast but it's very basic only tea/ coffee, toast and jam , some fruit , cereal with cold milk but it's still all you can eat format. I usually breakfast at Foodland Patpong and supplement that in hotel with some fruit  upon return.

 

Recently I was impressed with slightly more expensive Baan Silom in Silom soi 3 recommended  to me by z909
