Celebrating 30 Years In Thailand

It’s amazing to think that my first visit to Thailand was 30 years ago. Some people reading this have not even lived that long. Oh boy, how time flies!

It was way back in May 1988 when I first travelled to Thailand to live on Sityodtong Thai Boxing Camp. This Thai Boxing Trip was sponsored by an Electrical Engineering Company (Steemson & Walden Ltd) from my hometown. I was featured by local radio and television companies based in the Midlands, England.

Situated near Pattaya, Sityodtong is the home of many great World Champions such as the legendary Samart Payakaroon. Most farangs stay at Thai Boxing Camps for a few weeks, I stayed over 4 months. I was besotted with Thailand.

Bangkok 1988

*This article is my first encounter with Bangkok during a scorching hot season*

My first impression of Bangkok was one of absolute bewilderment.  Taking in this city of contrasts was proving to be very challenging.  My initial reaction was to feel numb from head to foot from culture shock.

Bangkok is only one city, but it has one million confusions!

My senses were paralyzed from the very first moment I met Bangkok face to face; the tremendous noise, dreadful air pollution, appalling traffic, horrendous heat and utter chaos.  Bangkok was certainly living up to its reputation of having the world’s worst traffic congestion and lowest oxygen count.  If Bangkok was anything to go by, Thailand and I had certainly not fallen in love at first sight.

Amazing Thailand 01 - Daves Raves - 26/08/18

I began to wonder which one of Bangkok’s lethal attributes would kill me first — the deadly drivers, the kamikaze motorcyclists, the polluted air, the lack of oxygen… or would I just simply perish from the unrelenting heat?

The Thais call their capital Krungthep, which means ‘City Of Angels.’  I can assure you, I could not find anything remotely angelic about this catastrophic city on my first introduction.

Chinatown Bangkok - Daves Raves - 26/08/18

I was full of great expectations moments earlier on the plane, anticipating the pleasures of being seduced by Siam, but I landed with a resounding bump and was only bemused by Bangkok.  I stepped out of the luxurious air-conditioned Don Muang airport and was tenaciously greeted by the savage furnace-like heat of Bangkok.

I gasped for air as the stifling atmosphere pinned itself to the back of my throat.  My initial thoughts turned to those of shock and I thought, I’m insane for coming here?  Yes, I reflected.  What on earth have I done?  Never before had I suffered the full effects of culture shock, but Bangkok was initiating me to it with the subtlety of a heavy whack on the head.

tuktuk thailand - Daves Raves - 26/08/18

My friend, who came to meet me at Don Muang International Airport, read the expression on my face and uttered in a quiet voice, ‘It’s a scorching hot season, even the Thais are complaining about the heat this year.’  In a state of confusion I thought, how could anybody stand this heat?

We loaded my luggage into the boot and got into my friend’s car.  I sighed with relief, while I had a shelter away from the searing heat.  I was still numb as we began to crawl along the roads, clawing for every few inches we could seize.  It seemed to me that whilst on Bangkok roads, you are either riding on the wings of death or trapped like insects in a glass jar — there is no happy medium.  Waves of cool air soothed my weary body; I momentarily closed my eyes as the air-conditioner hummed its tune.

Bangkok Models - Daves Raves - 26/08/18

It is estimated that anywhere up to 10 million people reside in Bangkok alone, and several million vehicles cram the main roads into gridlock.  I was pondering the fact that it is not surprising Bangkok’s roads have such a notorious reputation.  Whilst I continued to struggle to come to terms with Bangkok’s roads, an entire family of four passed by us.  They were all crammed onto one tiny motorbike.  Was I delirious?

This massive, sprawling metropolis was not my idea of a tropical paradise.  At best, it was Central London at the worst peak of rush hour multiplied several folds.  Even more disturbing — what about the road users?  My Lord!  I was looking on in horror as vehicles of all kinds played dodge ‘ems with each other.  Streams of traffic were travelling at high speed bumper-to-bumper, crisscrossing in and out of any lane they cared to choose.  Just then, a motorcyclist passed in front of the rows of traffic diagonally.  Unbelievably, some of the traffic was quite evidently not even going in the same direction. It’s mindboggling to see them appear so blasé about it.

Bangkok 01 - Daves Raves - 26/08/18

Suddenly, we broke away from the traffic jam, because an open stretch of the road appeared.  The speed of the other vehicles put my head into a permanent spin.  Young motorcyclists were weaving in and out of the paths of cars, buses and lorries, all with the daring of motorbike boy racers.  Furthermore, I was horrified to notice that nobody was wearing a crash helmet.  I was in a world of my own being entertained by this strange spectator sport.  I concluded that this was certainly not for the uninitiated.  I continued to be astonished by the way these daredevil motorbike riders negotiated intricate swerves and lane changes, all at death-defying high speeds.

Finally, we escaped the congested traffic of Bangkok and were on the way to Naklua, which is located near Pattaya.  A new adventure was about to unfold and little did I know how much it would change my life.

Best Street Food in Asia

DOLLHOUSE 04 03 2018 282 1 - Street Eat Beat

Bangkok has a vast array of mouthwatering street food. However, some international media reports wrongly stated that all street food vendors have closed their businesses. What the funk?!?!

This is not true and at times the Western media really is a big joke!

Bangkok’s street food is quick, cheap and delicious. It is an ideal way to soak up all that booze when you are enjoying the Bangkok nightlife. Enjoy!

Is Bangkok In A Time Warp?

STUMBLE 22 02 2018 046 - Is Bangkok In A Time Warp?

BANGKOK RAINY SEASON STARTS EARLY

The rainy season appears to have started early, albeit at sporadic intervals. Is Bangkok in a time warp? March should be the beginning of the hot season.

Rainfall might not seem like a big deal, but in this city, it can make getting around much harder. It’s the only time of year I do not like.

Some taxi drivers do not stop when you hail a cab and motorbike taxi riders can disappear like a thief in the night. As for the unscrupulous taxi drivers who try to double the price, they can stick it where the sun doesn’t shine!

Alternatively, you can do an impression of sardines in a tin can if you try to use the Skytrain. Don’t forget your umbrella fella!

Make New Year’s Eve Special

Sunday, December 31st, 2017

You’ve pretty much done it all, when it comes to New Year’s Eve celebrations. You did the Central World Rampage, you did the fancy roof top bar and of course, the all time classic, but rather boring River Cruise on New Year’s Eve. Hey, why not try something new this year, something different! How about this – take your wife, girlfriend or “gig” (or if you are a Daredevil all three of them at the same time), and make yourself comfortable in one of the many short time fun places.

stfdtr01 - Make New Year's Eve Special

You will find them all over Thailand, sure there are plenty of them close to where you stay. No, short time Hotels, or Love Motels are not the shabby, dirty hideaways anymore, which they may be used to be. They have come a long way (pardon the pun). Nowadays they are converted into clean and fun places to have a great short time, a timeout from the rush and restrains of every day life.

stfdtr02 - Make New Year's Eve Special

This New Year’s Party let your fantasy flow by choosing a funny theme room, indulge in long jacuzzi sessions with the lady of the evening, and get a massage while sipping a glass of the good old bubbly. And then, at 11.59pm, get ready to shoot your own personal little firework together with your Lady, she will love you forever, or at least for the rest of the night.

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.

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.
