koolbreez got a reaction from kaunitz in Thailand's Flight of the Gibbon Announces Chiang Mai Homestay Adventure Tour Read mo
Flight of the Gibbon is so overpriced it is rediculous. If you like paying American prices in Thailand then go for them, and it isn't a double pricing deal, Thais get charged the same exhorborant prices. Single person for the 6 hour day package cost bt3800, with no discount for two people, and there are extra costs thrown in.
The one hour package is only bt1800+ for one person, and not much is included.
They are by far the most expensive day tour operation in Thailand, and it scares me to even think what this new package will cost.
koolbreez got a reaction from kaunitz in Unwanted Feeling
Those are natural feelings. If you suppress them, at some time they will come out. It is much better to just let them come out when they happen as Neung points out.
You let the feelings come out when the incident happens, then you know why you are having those feelings. If you try to suppress those emotional feelings, then when they do come out, and they will, you will not know what they are associated with, and you can come to the wrong assumption about what is causing those emotional feelings.
It is human to feel sad when sad things happen, as it is just as human to feel mad when someone cheats on you. Deal with the feelings on the spot, and don't let them build. It is not in some peoples nature to confront what is causing those feelings, but if you don't they will build, and build, until you no longer can control them when they do come out, and they will.
koolbreez got a reaction from Exploring in What has happened to Lower Sukhumvit
I think you are blinded by what lower Sukhumvit is, and always has been, a tourist trap. The tourists expect the street vendors, they expect the touts, and they expect the working girls. Everything you are complaining about is what makes lower Sukhumvit what it is, and always has. It is a unique area of Bangkok, just like China Town, or KaoSan Road, they are what they are, and people visit there for exactly the experiences you are complaining about.
The Beer Garden is much better, and cleaner than it used to be, it even has a band in the evening now, or are you simply complaining about the people that frequent it? They really haven't changed. It never was a younger crowd hangout. The owner does not allow ladyboys in the beer garden, and never has. The food they serve is still pretty good, and the beers are still pretty cheap. It doesn't look like the fire trap it did before.
Are you complaining about the Thermai because you are now priced out of that venue? I like to see some people making more money, and it still is a fun place to visit, drink prices haven't went up that much.
NANA Plaza has changed with the removal of the center bars on the bottom for fire safety reasons, and except for ownership changes, and remodels of some of the businesses, everything else is the same. Big Dogs is the same. Nana burger in the front has cleaned up their operation considerably. Unless you are looking for a ladyboy, the ones in the front don't bother you, and they've been there as long as I can remember. I do miss the hell fire, and brimstone preacher that used to frequent the entrance though.
For the most part the lower Sukhumvit area is much cleaner than it was in the past with many of the old decaying businesses having been remodeled. The Bamboo bar isn't even bamboo anymore after all the remodel, and the parking lot has been turned into a very good Lebanese restaurant.
I'm not really sure what has deteriorated that you are refering to? It has improved from what I can see. The people are different, but they change all the time anyway, both the tourists, depending on the season, and the business owners depending on who they found to buy them out this time around.
koolbreez reacted to Stramash in anyone know any gangstas in thailand ?
Never really saw that side of it. Saw a few guns being exchanged, saw the senior police collect their bribes. Only ever saw one bit of violence around Reung, and that was an Aussie who was trying to sell grass and pills in Chaweng.
