Cactus Will Sting You! Cactus John is a crafty guy, who lures unsuspecting customers into his den of inequity. Once inside your life may never be the same again. Cactus Bar in the heart of Soi Cowboy boasts the largest selection of Belgian Beers out of all the go-go bars in Thailand. Hey, perhaps all of Asia too. The ‘booze cruise’ is obscene, with some Belgian Beers as high as 13 percent alcohol volume. Although a great cook and host, Cactus John is indeed a sick man. As John would say, ‘This beer is 13 percent… God-damn-it!’ Cactus Bar is a renowned home-from-home for those seeking American home style cooking, classic rock and a bunch of go-go girls who are certainly not shy!

Enter The Dragon! It is estimated that one third of Bangkokians are of Chinese origin. Therefore, Chinese New Year is quite special to a number of people who reside in the City Of Angels. In particular, Chinatown is very vibrant and lively during the Chinese New Year celebrations, with firecrackers, drums and ceremonial dragon dancers who proudly parade the busy streets. (more…)
Climate Change – The weather here in Bangkok has changed for the better. Finally, the cool season has arrived. Recently, I was chatting with friends, we were situated high up on the balcony outside my friend’s condominium. As the cool breeze washed over our bodies, it was indeed a refreshing experience. All year long temperamental Bangkok was either hot, humid, or wet. But right now, the rain has stopped, the oppressive heat and humidity has lessened, and the flood waters are subsiding rapidly. Meanwhile, Bangkok city centre remains as dry as a bone. In fact, every morning we are waking up to beautiful sunshine, with a picturesque skyline. The cool season in Thailand reminds me of a European summer; sunny in the day and cool at night. No need to be cautious anymore, you can confidently fly to Thailand for some fun in the sun!
Girls Girls Girls! With various foreign travel warnings and misleading media reports regarding the flooding, Thailand is considerably down on tourist arrivals. The high season is supposed to start some time in November, but we fear that a lot of people have already cancelled their trips. Numerous shops, bars and restaurants, are left to battle on with a scarce number of customers. Yet again, a promising start to the high season has been ruined, although this time it was mainly down to that nasty bitch Mother Nature! This is the downside, but this means that there are a lot of lonely ladies. Following the flood crisis bar girls need to make money again and therefore, we will see bar girls returning to work, especially in the Bangkok go-go bars. And so, this is where you come to the rescue. For once the guys can be fussy in the high season, because the boy-to-girl ratio is currently very much in your favour. Happy hunting!
