  1. Mention of The Royal Cliff brought back memories. My first visit to Thailand was about 15 years when I came with 2 friends on a multi centre package (Flight and hotels in Bangkok/Phuket/Pattaya) The Pattaya Hotel was the Royal Cliff, when I brought a young man back for the night it was no problem, he left his ID at reception and there was a charge of 500 bht (at 70baht = 1GBP) Happy days, I never thought then I would now be living in Thailand with my partner of 10 years (not the same guy)
  2. Do Superrich at the airport change THB to GBP at a decent rate? I am resident in Thailand on a retirement visa and I have to transfer in every month more THB than I need. Next month my better half and I are going to England on holiday and I thought it would be an opportunity to change back some THB for our spending money
  3. Thanks for your reports, it must be very time consuming but they have been appreciated
  4. Londoner has now added more information. The Jomtien Complex bars are almost all staffed by twinks who I have always found very friendly albeit I am with my partner and never looking for sex. There are several massage places in the Complex, when I have had a massage they have always provided a HE, although some masseurs were more enthusiastic than others in this respect. The guy that gave me my best professional kind of massage also told me he was a money boy which I assume meant he would provide full sex, unfortunately when we were in Jomtien in June he had left.
  5. If you enjoy the beach and are planning to stay in Pattaya consider basing your self in Jomtien. It is much more relaxing than Pattaya while being only a short baht bus ride into Pattaya for shopping and Boyz Town. When my partner and I go we stay in the Jomtien Complex at the Agate Hotel. I have always found the hotel quiet while being close to the complex bars and a short walk to Dongtan beach
  6. The Black House near Chiang Rai is also worth a visit
  7. I do not read Thai but it looks like 2700 baht for a two hour oil massage. Presumably there is then a tip to the masseur
  8. Sorry I can't help here, I always pay Transferwise with a bank transfer
  9. I am going back 10 years but I used to send 10,000 baht every 2 months 5000 baht a month was to pay his rent and service fees in a decent condo. He was very appreciative and he must have been happy as he became my UK Civil Partner and after 10 years we are still happily together
  10. From the UK Transferwise charge on sending 1000 GBP to Thailand is 6.96 GBP paying them by bank transfer and 8.95 GBP if you pay by debit or credit card
  11. I use Transferwise to send money from the UK to Thailand but noticed in passing I can't use it to send money from Thailand. I suspect Thailand and Malaysia have strict currency controls.
  12. It is quite a few years since we stayed, I enjoyed it, my Thai partner loved it. It is perfectly located for strolling across to the beach. Now (as it is much cheaper) we stay at The Agate
  13. Spoon I agree with Divine Madman, I'm sure the boys are like us. Sometimes it is really nice just to chat with a nice guy who can speak some English and I'm sure they also enjoy speaking with a guy who is clearly good company.(and lay down a marker for another night)
  14. If possible Hank could you pm me the photos
  15. I think it is worth mentioning that when my friend, a middle aged straight lady visiting from the UK, was in Bangkok in November she hired Mac as a tour guide and was very complementary about the tour he arranged and found him to be a charming (old fashioned word but she used it) and informative companion. She is a very busy lady back in the UK so probably hasn't had time to post a review but it is worth bearing in mind if any forum members have straight friends visiting that the guides (certainly Mac) provide a good service beyond the gay community
