One night Bangkok, never enough

One night Bangkok, never enough

One night Bangkok, never enough, plus one night Bangkok makes a hard man humble, Not much between despair and ecstasy,One night in Bangkok and the tough guys tumble, Can’t be too careful with your company, I can feel the devil walking next to me.

We have all heard the song and some of us have been lucky enough to live the dream. 🙂

This it not part of my travel blog, just part of my personal history from 2007.

One Night in Bangkok – Murray Head (HQ Audio)

“One night in Bangkok and the world’s your oyster
The bars are temples but their pearls ain’t free
You’ll find a god in every golden cloister
And if you’re lucky, then the god’s a she
I can feel an angel sliding up to me”

One night Bangkok, never enough

Say no more…….

Khaosan Road

One night Bangkok, never enough

“Khaosan” translates as “milled rice”, a reminder that in former times the street was a major Bangkok rice market. In the last 20 years, however, Khaosan Road has developed into a world famous “backpacker ghetto”. It offers cheap accommodation, ranging from “mattress in a box” style hotels to reasonably priced 3-star hotels. In an essay on the backpacker culture of Khaosan Road,

Khaosan Road cafe

One night Bangkok, never enough

 

There are several pubs and bars where backpackers meet to discuss their travels. The area is internationally known as a centre of dancing, partying, and just prior to the traditional Thai New Year (Songkran festival) of 13-15 April, water splashing that usually turns into a huge water fight. One Thai writer has described Khaosan as “…a short road that has the longest dream in the world”.

 What a beautiful face.

One night Bangkok, never enough

A pedicure in Bangkok is an absolute please when done by such a beautiful girl.


 

Long tail boat

One night Bangkok, never enough

The craft is designed to carry passengers on a river & may include a lightweight long canoe hull, up to 30 meters long, and a canopy. There is a great variation among these boats, some have evolved from traditional craft types, while others have a more improvised look, the sole defining characteristic is a second-hand car or truck engine.

Ok, lets go yo Pattaya

One night Bangkok, never enough

  Another beautiful face is Dah who was working at the Honey Pot in Soi 2 when I met her last year.  

Dah in 2006, 15 kilo lighter

 Sabai Resort

One night Bangkok, never enough

This is where I stayed for 7 years each time I would visit Pattaya until I moved to Thailand from Australia in October 2011. A great location with a reasonable price, I preferred room number 311.

Tiny girl at the Honey Pot

  Rod is a fairly big guy, in fact he used to be a Sydney cop, he towers over the little waitress.  

Honey Pot Soi 2

One night Bangkok, never enough

It was my favourite bar for 2 or 3 years, sadly the original Honey Pot is now closed. Typical Pattaya, nothing stays the same for too long.
