I've never been to Thailand, even though I'd love to. It just isn't feasible for me go any time soon as I have too many commitments (If I went, I wouldn't bother going for any less than 3 weeks). However, I do peruse the 'Pattaya Addicts' forum from time to time and I noticed a question the other day from somebody along the lines of 'how much mongering (punting) do you do back home?'. The consensus was basically a resounding 'hardy any, I'd much rather just save the money and go to Thailand whenever I can'.
So I'm just wondering how many people here have been to LOS or anywhere similar, and as this is the UK punting forum, I'm presuming you don't subscribe to the above reasoning? Why not? Or perhaps some of you are rich and can afford both?
One word answer... Pattaya!!
Place is amazing, as are the women. Very clean, slim, soft skin and some absolute stunners, at bargain rates. When I was there, an overnight (long time) was £30 - £35. What they call a "quickie", which is 1 - 2 hours... £9! You're treated like kings and literally dragged into the bars by the girls!
To be honest, the only problem I had when I came back, was refusing to pay the ridiculous rates that some girls charge over here! And every woman here just looked fat and overweight, in comparison, for the first 2 months!! A lot of them are, let's be honest. I'm not kidding!
Now, I just stick to quickies and 30 minute bookings.
I hear Laos is even cheaper, according to my ex-navy buddy, but you're probably on safer ground going to Thailand.
