Mercury Go-Go Bar Party Pics

Sunday, November 5th, 2017

Last Friday, Mercury Go-Go Bar decided to throw a party, which just happened to coincide with the Loy Krathong Festival. Well, it was Loy Krathong with a twist…

If you are behind on the latest gogo gossip, Mercury Bar has turned 50 Shades of Pink by changing the format to ladyboys. With them all sporting the full landing gear, it’s certainly a radical change! But, well run ladyboy bars can be very profitable and making money is the name of the game.

The gogo dancers began the party dressed very elegantly in stylish evening dresses, making a pleasant change to the norm. The party theme attracted a good crowd and one customer cheerily commented, “It makes me feel like I’m on a date.”

Mercury Ladyboy Bar has generously donated money towards the forthcoming charity fundraising event down in Pattaya. The Annual Charity Ladyboy Water Volleyball Tournament will be held at Areca Lodge, Soi Diana, Pattaya on Saturday, November 11th from 1:00 PM.

This special event will raise money for Pattaya Orphanage and two other deserving Thai charities. So far, the LBWVB charity donations total over 3,500,000฿ since 2008 which I think you will agree is fantastic.

Full details about LBWVB can be found HERE

Thailand’s Mourning Period Ends

Sunday, October 29th, 2017

Bangkok Nightlife Resumes

the big mango 1 - Thailand's Mourning Period Ends

The official mourning period for His Majesty King Bhumibol Aduljadej ends tonight. In what has been a tremendously emotional ceremony, the scale of the Royal Funeral showed just how much the late King Rama 9 was loved.

The spectacular funeral procession and sheer volume of people attending was nothing short of phenomenal. Worldly foreign travelers were reported as saying, they have never seen anything like it in their lives. One long-term expat said, “There was an ocean of Thai people, as far as your eyes could see.”

It is hoped that November will see the start of the tourist season, with cool, dry weather and a steady spike in tourists arrivals. Following a very tough year for the entertainment industry, it is very much anticipated.

Bangkok Royal Funeral Reminder

Monday, October 23rd, 2017
Grand Palace Bangkok - Bangkok Royal Funeral Reminder

ROYAL GRAND PALACE BANGKOK THAILAND

THAILAND –  The Thai people have heavy hearts, as they prepare to say goodbye to their beloved King Rama 9. His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej is deemed by many people, as the King of all Kings.

It is with great sadness that we announce the Royal Funeral dates. Please note, the official days are as follows; October 25th, October 26th and October 27th, with October 26th being the day of the Royal Cremation.

His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej is regarded by many, as one of the world’s greatest ever King’s in history. His Majesty King Bhumibol had a good working relationship with Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. It was reported that Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth flew to Bangkok and personally signed the book of condolences.

Thailand and Britain still maintain a fairly close relationship, as they have for centuries. As historians will know, the Siamese Royal Princes were sent to study at England’s finest universities. How many countries have had that prestigious honour?

His Majesty King Bhumibil Adulyadej 1 - Bangkok Royal Funeral Reminder

Paying Respects! His Majesty King Bhumibol will be remembered for his tremendous kindness to the Thai people. May His Majesty Rest In Peace.

Daves Raves! Many bars will be CLOSED on October 25th to 27th.

Top Tip! It’s respectful to wear black and/or white clothing, from October 25th to October 27th. Of course, it’s not compulsory for foreigners, but it shows you’re respectful and it will be appreciated by the Thai people.

Heads Up! The “Old City” in Bangkok will be packed full of mourners. It’s estimated that at least 250,000 Thais will be attending the Royal Funeral.

RESPECTFULLY THERE WILL BE NO UPDATES OCTOBER 25-27

Bangkok Bar Closures Update

Friday, October 13th, 2017

 

soi nana bangkok 5 - Bangkok Bar Closures Update

NANA PLAZA, SOI COWBOY & PATPONG CLOSED OCTOBER 25-27

UPDATE – A number of Bangkok bars and clubs will CLOSE tonight to respect the passing of His Majesty King Bhumibol on October 13th, 2016.

The beer bars, go-go bars, pubs and clubs, are all OPEN on Saturday, October 14th and on Sunday 15th. They are also OPEN next weekend (October 20-22). With so many public holidays in Thailand, I know it can be hard to keep track of them all.

The Royal Funeral of His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej will officially take place on Thursday, October 26th. Everybody is advised to wear black clothing, as this will be an extremely sad time for Thailand.

This means that all entertainment venues will (most likely) be CLOSED on October 25th, 26th and 27th. It may well be a good time to take a break from Bangkok.

Dave’s Raves – It’s not demanded that foreigners wear black clothing (October 25-27), but it will be respected by the Thai people.

Thailand Bans Smoking On 20 Beaches

Thursday, October 12th, 2017

 

Patpong Beach Phuket - Thailand Bans Smoking On 20 Beaches

PATONG BEACH PHUKET THAILAND 2017

Butt Out Or Go To Jail

Thailand has banned smoking on 20 of its popular tourist beaches. While the move seems smart, the draconian punishments are extremely harsh. Offenders caught smoking could face one year in prison, and/or a maximum fine of 100,000 baht.

I agree in theory with a ban on smoking to preserve Thailand’s beaches, but realistically, littering of any kind should be banned.

What about the rest of the litter bugs? The endless streams of plastic cups, plastic bags, discarded food cartons, sweet wrappers, etc.

This particularly applies to the beaches in Pattaya, which have become badly polluted following decades of neglect. The Thai authorities have partly dealt with the pollution problem, but they need to address the whole issue.

News Source – Read the full article below by The Guardian…

Thailand bans smoking on 20 popular tourist beaches

Thailand is to ban smoking on some of the country’s most popular tourist beaches, with the prospect of up to a year in prison for those caught lighting up, according to reports by local media.

Bangkok’s 50 Best Breakfast Eateries

bangkok thailand - Bangkok's 50 Best Breakfast Eateries

WHERE IS THE BEST BREAKFAST IN BANGKOK?

If you need a good Bangkok breakfast bucket list, then you are in luck. This listing is certainly not talking about a sloppy brekkie at Greasy Joe’s Mobile Cafe! Oh no, this includes some of the finest cafes and restaurants in Bangkok.

BK Magazine explores the City of Angels with meticulous detail, stating the names, locations, food on offer, prices and opening hours, at each eatery. The guys at BK Magazine have not just done the leg work for you, they have tested the food and recorded the important details. Hey, aren’t we lucky!

I think certain websites and forums focus way too much on the stereotypical “Cheap Charlie” when it comes down to prices in Thailand. There are a lot of people who don’t mind paying a fair price for a good meal. All of us mere mortals are on a one-way ticket, so we might as well enjoy the journey.

I hope you find the article useful and enjoy visiting some of the suggested venues. Please feel free to write about your favourite Bangkok breakfast eateries in the comments section below the embedded article.

Dollhouse Pattaya Opens VIP Lounge

Wednesday, September 20th, 2017

The Dollhouse Go-Go Bar down in Sin City, otherwise known as Pattaya are opening a XXX Vip Lounge. The concept is based upon agogo meets gentlemen’s club, all rolled into one. Knowing these guys there will be a few surprises too.

This Friday, September 22nd is the Soft Opening of the XXX VIP Lounge, which promises to provide plenty of pampering and pleasure! This is a format the Thailand’s nightlife scene should have adopted many years ago.

Dollhouse Pattaya - Dollhouse Pattaya Opens VIP Lounge

The concept is to combine the best of East and West, with the raunchy bump ‘n’ grind of Thai gogo dancers and the Western strip club format. The modern day gentlemen’s clubs partly do this, but certainly not entirely.

Daves Raves – I wish The Dollhouse all the best for endeavouring to introduce something fresh to the gogo bar scene in Pattaya.

The Dollhouse is located down Soi 15 Walking Street.

British Pound Bounces Back

Tuesday, September 19th, 2017

british pounds sterling - British Pound Bounces Back

It’s been a good week for the British pound, as it surged against both the American dollar and the Euro.

In what can only be described as a sudden turnaround, the pound has made a surprise comeback. Last week the sterling rose to a one-year high of $1.327 against the American dollar.

Similar to a scene from a Rocky movie, the British sterling was “pounded” against the ropes, but has come out on top. The previous fear of Brexit sent the pound into a spiraling descent, with the Euro continuing to gain in strength for some time now.

The spike in the pound is largely due to the threat of the British Government being forced to raise interest rates. The reason is linked to a rise of inflation, as the decision looms in the British financial atmosphere.

thai baht notes - British Pound Bounces Back

Regarding a very strong Thai baht, there has been some national criticism of the Thai government. Some locals are saying it’s affecting the export market and also that Thailand is becoming a more expensive option.

However, there is more good news for Brits, as the pound has also risen against the Thai baht. A number of disgruntled Brits will say, “About bloody time” and they will no doubt expect more. But, the poor performance of the pound has really affected Brits abroad. Also, the staggering strength of the baht has dented the fixed income of expats, especially British pensioners living in Thailand.

Dare we say the pound is starting to look bullish?! Let’s hope the pound continues to rise to around 50 baht, where it will really start to gain attention.
