Where I stayed
Patong Backpacker Hostel
Needless to say I arrive there and checked in before sunrise. THe hostel was infintly better than the bungalows at Phi Phi and I met two french guys in my dorm. We grabbed some McDOnalds (that marks THailand off the list) and headed to the beach and talked about of all things, immigration within our respective countires and how it is negatively effecting them. I am referring to illigal immigration, as was he. He also mention that France has a lot of Brain Drain going on with their labor force.
After this we went back to the hostel and I met Dennis. Dennis is a crazy funny as hell german from Cologne who is a personal trainer
We drank some Whiskey and headed out to dinner (for Dennis and Yanny) and I had the best damn beer yet. It was chang but it was so cold there was ice on the glass. WE all agreed it was VERY good. After this, Yanny of all people said we should go to a "Ping Pong Show." We agreed and further details regarding the show will only be revealed to select people upon my return.
After that we decided to go to a Lady Boy Cabaret. ALong the walk down the street there are countelss bars with endless Go GO Dancers and men trying to coas you into there bars with signs and "best deal in town" offers. It reminds me of Vegas meets Cancun.
We arrived at the Cabaret at 1 AM and were the only 3 people in the show
After that we bar hopped to a club until around 4 am and then crashed back at the hostel. We had all agreed to head to Bangkok together and I bought a bus ticket. The bus ride was 18 hours and we changed busses threee times. I slept maybe 3 hours and saw 2 movies. This does change my itinarary a little as I will now have to retun to the south to go to Ko Tao and Ko Phangan.
We arrived in Bangkok at 5 AM and crashed at a hotel with AC since we were all in need of a decent room. Mom you were right. In Bankok we didn't do much, just shopped, ate and relaxed. We also bought bus tickets to Chang Mai which is another 12 hour bus ride.
