The Big Mango Bangkok December 2015
Bangkok Weekend December 2015
Bangkok Weekend December 2015 was a two day break from Pattaya, we discovered some great new bars and restaurants. In particular the Red Sky Bar, Above 11 and the Pirate Chambre. Xmas decorations were everywhere, the photo above is at Central shopping mall at Chidlom.
Hooters is here
Due to open in Soi 4 Nana on December 23rd, sadly I believe it is destined to fail, wrong location, local “Cheap Charlies” will never pay extra for their drinks. They will sit opposite where the drinks are cheaper and the bar girls are available for extra activities.
Diagonally across the road is the infamous Nana Plaza with dozens of beer bars s and Go Go bars. Here I am with my friend Hamish from Pattaya, I’ll bail out around 10 pm and Hamish will kick on to dawn. 🙂

Hooters two days before the opening on December 23 2015.
CentralWorld is a shopping plaza and complex in Bangkok. It is the sixth largest shopping complex in the world. The complex, which includes a hotel and office tower, is owned by Central Pattana. The Red Sky Bar has an impressive 360-degree panoramic view from its 55th floor. Check out my photo blog here.
Elephant display at CentralWorld.
There are many wonderful shopping malls in Bangkok, at the moment my favourite is EmQuartier opposite the Emporium.
One of the amazing cars in Bangkok
You see so many wonderful luxury vehicles in Bangkok, starting with Bentley Continental the magic green Lotus, the Aston Martin Vanquish, & the Bentley Continental. If you want to see more check out my Siam Paragon photo blog.
Terrific new restaurant.
Terrific new Bangkok restaurant, the Pirate Chambre at Chidlom. Hard to find but worth the effort. The fabulous lamb shank was only B480.
Enjoying a red wine at Pirate Chambre
Put this excellent restaurant on your bucket list.
A Bangkok icon hidden in a small alley off Soi 11. RIP Charlie, the good news is they will try to relocate elsewhere.
Snapper in Soi 11 (NOW CLOSED)
Almost opposite Cheap Charlie’s is this rather interesting restaurant. I can’t comment too much as all I tried was the seafood chowder, which was rather good.
Soi 11 restaurant
One of the many restaurants in the small alley off Soi 11.
Soi 13 Sukhumvit Rd
In Bangkok the building never stops, another skyscraper is coming out of the ground on Sukhumvit between Soi 11 & 13. Here is my photo blog on Bangkok’s building boom.
Normally breakfast here is excellent, not so today. It took 40 minutes to arrive and was not up to the usual excellent Marriott standard, perhaps they were having an off day. Plus even after using my Griffin card which gives me a 20% discount, the price with a Latte was 387 Baht or $15 aud. Cheap by Australian standards but a little expensive for Thailand. I’m probably only complaining because the food quality was less than it normally is + I don’t like hash browns or cooked tomato. 🙂
