  1. Moonlight posted a video of an appearance at the Festival site and then an after party at the bar.
  2. There's a fast track for arrivals and for departures. For departures follow the monks. For arrivals, there is the advice above to follow the airline uniforms, there is also a separate entrance located between the to main arrival areas near to where the visa on arrival area is prior to the immigration halls.
  3. Remembering last stay just before Covid the back rooms especially on the lower floors were dark from minimum sun. Since then the Quarter Hotel has opened which should block out light on the upper floors. Floridarob is a long time Tarntawan-er and I respect his judgement so now I might consider a return as long as its on the front.

    First Visit

    Friday late afternoon airport arrival. Ugh! Vinapu's info on taking the train are spot on. I've used them more than once and will again in December. The Raya is very very close to the Sala Daeng station.
  5. All well and good to talk about Dreamboys moving...BUT any word on a return for Screwboys?
  6. Welcome back...enjy every moment
  7. When going to Bangkok or Pattaya, I will post my dates in the forum and ask if anyone will be in town when I am in Thailand. While the number of members I've met doesn't total near as many as @vinapu, it is enough to have made for many interactions, some looking for spies at now gone Madrid pizza. It's been fun to be with @vinapu and @spoon as they tend to look for companions slightly different than my searches.
  8. I've changed my trip plans to align my time in Bangkok with the visits of some other forum members. I am now booked round trip on Eva with a stop on Taipel in each direction. It is the fastest way by several hours to transit the Pacific. M original booking wasn't on Eva as a 48 hour covid test was required for transit passengers. That requirement was dropped as of July 14th. I will be going economy using 84,000 miles/points for the round trip. That prices the trip at approximately $1,100 based on a value of 1.3 cents per mile/point
  9. I am in general agreement with @macaroni21 on Lucky Boys except for the description of the leaseholder as "poor". He/she is the leaseholder for Lucky Boys and Bangkok Massage. So is the power behind Screwboys future. Hopefully both will find ways to love and breathe again. I anticipate the powers behind the powers will find a way to thrive.
  10. The Thai version of viagra is sidegra was available at the pharmacy you ask about as well a most of the other pharmacies in the neighborhood, no prescription required. Cialis is similar is viagra so I suspect other pharmacies along Surawong will be available to assist. Sidegra comes in a tablet and a gel, one frequent correspondent on this board prefers the gel as he believes it is quicker acting.
  11. On massages, check recommendations from @reader who is just back and is a massage connoisseur ranking with @DivineMadman and @TotallyOz
  12. I prefer the Amara and have just booked three night there in September. It's about a five minute walk from the New Twilight Male bar and five more from Moonlight, Hot Male, DreamBoys etc. The Raya once steps from Twilight is now next to a construction site. It hasn't moved just the developers have moved in on Twilight. If debating between the two, recommend a @vinapusolution...a few nights at each. My version of this is Amara to start, then Pattaya for a few nights, then back to Bangkok with a stay at the new Quarter Silom hotel.
  13. At @reader's suggestion I joined the Amara Club. The rates in September are about 40% less than August which works well for my September Bangkok visit.
  14. A Rose isn't always a Rose when its a residence and not a hotel
  15. I was planning on Eva for it convenience and quality...unfortunately transferring flights in Taipei requires a covid test. So I booked United to Tokyo then transfer to Thai. Not a lot of great choices for those going west to Bangkok from the west coast of the USA
  16. As @readerobserves this is a topic that has drawn lots of insightful comments. As one who has a few years on you, I can only say is relax into vacations. I aim for three weeks visits as there is a boredom quotient tht grows with the length of stay. I agree with @floridarob that sometimes chilling out in the hotel is a suffieicnt way to end the day/night and recharge.
  17. The Rose does look nice but the price is pricey (i.e $250-$300 USD per night).
  18. Agree with Reader and Vinapu"s +1
  19. I've has boys walk with me, I've had boys walk a bit behind, and I've had boys lead me to my hotel (due to the boy internet, they knew where I was staying). In each scenario the goal of getting the boy to the hotel was achieved.
  20. Airfares may be less in December. In a "normal" year that wouldn't be the case, but there's a big drop as of the 2nd week in September. Now this is from the perspective of someone coming from the west coast of the US. Flying to Bangkok in September the fares are $500+ less that in August.
  21. Thanks @TotallyOz for setting a standard price list which we may negotiate toward or from. It helps me plan my September trip budget. I encourage those in Thailand who are negotiating with boys to keep note of what the going rate is.
  22. Yes and like unto exploding shoes rules were made many years ago which are still in place. Last time in China (30 months back) the security check wanted me to show them the battery pack. On flight last month from SFO to Washington DC I was reminded that if I had a battery pack (which I do) that it needed to be in my carry-on. What's amusing is the April air tags are battery powered and they are packed in my in the hold luggage. Oh well...
  23. IMHO Lucky Boys is not able to open as Mamasan Lucy is holding out for more baht!
