From a long time capitan at Dreamboys:

 

"Soi Twilight will close soon. Maybe in April next year or the end of next year.   Chang Corporation and Montien Hotel together take over the soi. They are making a community complex."

 

No idea what kind of "community complex" would be appropriate for that soi.

Sounds like the first reasonable rumor I've heard.  Perhaps a corporate meeting center as a joint venture with the hotel - the hotel proving sleeping rooms and catering.

Whatever those rumors are I sleep well convinced that whenever I will be back  soi still will be there for me. And no, I'm not planning any trip soon.

Thought half of it was being taken over by the condo complex that's going up in that area?

According to Theravada Buddhism, it will be there until it's not. :-)

Bob, that confirms what the German owner told me earlier this year.

Looks like Soi Twilight's days are numbered. The end may have come quicker than we thought.

But with bars now re-locating across the street, it doesn't really matter. As long as the guys keep their jobs.

Tonight was probably the busiest night Twilight has seen in awhile. High season is coming in strong. Just about full houses everywhere tonight.

What about the sign I saw during my last trip there (only a bit more than a week ago)? The sign said something like "this soi will be open for another 6 years" (or something like that).

 

I guess we can trust that sign they put up, or not? It was a big sign, professionally printed. So effort was put into it.

The Buddhists have it right.

I saw that sign, looks sturdy and makes serious impression but whether it conveys truth or just it's erected to soothe rumors  only erector ,  whoever he is,  can tell.

 

Don't worry too much , if you there , you can check on soi daily. If you're  not , nothing you can do unless you start preparing for  a next trip. Then check this forum and chances are there will me members on the ground with updates.

 

We are worrying if soi will be there for us next time but I'd  focus on next time, not soi. Even if it eventually closes there are and will be alternatives, perhaps just steps away.

It's also a public holiday in Singapore and Malaysia tomorrow, being the festival of Diwali/Deepavali.  So many of us have taken the day off today and been off work since Saturday - that's a four-day long weekend. :yahoo: My buddies and I are also in Thailand.  If you have time, check out Wat Khaek, the Hindu temple in Silom.  Sure to be a hive of activity tonight and tomorrow.

Theravada Buddhism doesn't do excluded middles, so also it will be neither there nor not there, and both there and not there.

All at once.

The guys who work in Soi Twilight, all Buddhists, have been saying this all along but no one paid attention ! :)
