Super travel tips, all road tested by David Herd. I'm an Australian guy who moved to Thailand in 2011 & still travel the world as often as possible.

Bangkok Hustle Nana Seven slash one

Small alley beside Nana station

Bangkok Hustle Nana Seven slash one

Bangkok Hustle Nana Bangkok Hustle Nana Seven slash one may sound a little confusing, however let me explain this title. Soi 7/1 is a small alley off Sukhumvit Road adjacent to Nana station. I sometimes stay at a very good budget hotel called iCheck Inn Nana, which is at the end of the street about 200 meters from Sukhumvit Road.

Walking that 200 meters is where the hustle comes into play, you have to pass quite a few massage parlours where the girls & ladyboys are quite relentless in their efforts to lure you inside with the promise of all sorts of graphic exotic experiences. I’ll leave the description of these promises up to your imagination. 🙂

The corner of Soi 7/1 & Sukhumvit Road

One of the popular Thai restaurants in this Soi.

Bangkok Hustle Nana There are 3 or 4 restaurants plus a few small hotels & 6 0r 7 massage parlours.

They call themselves the Bangkok Beer Cafe. 🙂

My history, particularly over the last 30 years is dominated by overseas travel. I sold my home in Australia October 20th 2011 and have have been living in Thailand since then. I don’t know where the time has gone? It seems like you go to sleep one night, wake up the next morning, and 20 years have flashed by. Not sure how many years I have left, however I have enjoyed a wonderful charmed life, and if it all ended today I would leave this world with no regrets. I was born in Sydney halfway through the last century, started my travels in the 60s with the usual U.K. Europe adventure at the age of 20, back to Australia and worked in Sydney, Melbourne & Adelaide in Sales & Marketing with multinational companies including Sanyo, Canon & Remington. Engaged to be married 3 times and never quite made it to the alter, finally realized by the mid 90s I was not cut out for "long term relationships" so I moved to the Gold Coast in Queensland in January 1987, worked for a couple of banks as a Financial Planner, I took a year off work in 1998 to travel and never went back to full time work again, after 25 fun filled years on the Coast I packed up and moved to Thailand. What is the purpose of this blog? Well I really want to use it to record my travel experiences & to display my photographs, give and receive travel tips, comment on places I visit, restaurants I eat in and use it to replace the autobiography I intended to write, apart from all that it helps me fill in my day. :) I moved to Thailand mainly because I wanted to keep travelling while my health allowed me to, there are huge advantages being closer to all the places I want to visit. Cost of living in Thailand is around 35% of the cost in Australia, plus flights are 50% cheaper because you are much closer to everywhere. ???? Consequently I am able to travel to many more places compared to living in Australia. Having said all that, it is & has always been my intention to return to Australia when my travelling is finished, I predict this will happen around 2021.
