places to go, people to meet
My favourite in Bangkok is the Malaysia hotel. http://www.malaysiahotelbkk.com
From $28 a night up,its basic but clean and habitable,and has a pool,coffee shop /bar.
Handy to train,and bus and a 7/11 store a few feet away as well as a few cafes.
A new Ibis brand hotel is now open immediatly opposite.Appxox $50 a night if you want a bit more swish!
Usual good security at malaysia hotel,your local companion must hand his ID card to reception, and reception phones you when he leaves to clear its ok to return his card.
No need to cruise the gay mafia downtown bars,as there is usuall plenty of local talent hanging around the hotel.
In Pattaya,we always stay at a small mostly undiscovered hotel conveniently located
In a lane immediately behind the small but cosy and friendly gay "Bamboo bar",and a short walk to the gay beach and close by a gay bar precinct.
Basic rooms with frig,and balcony,and a friendly host Michael.
Double rooms B600 =$20 http://ddinn.wordpress.com
Its the DD Inn. I will be there mid Sept,so can give an update if anyone needs.
For those that are more well heeled, the Poseidon Gay Boutique guesthouse up the road a bit will gladly take your money.
Very good reviews - thank you. KD
Good to know! Thanks! I immensely enjoyed Babylon Bulgari Garden suites in Bangkok, it is good to share options and reviews of new places!
