    two questions

    new to the board, but not new to LOS.

    1. staying in a guesthouse off Rat-U-Thit, are there any hotels with pools that allow day passes? Used to go to the beach, but it appears the loungers and umbrellas are gone.

    2. I had heard that this has been a particularly slow low season. has this resulted in lower prices and better mongering, or have the Thai in their infinite wisdom actually raised prices?

    Thanks in advance

    RE1: I think the Yorkshire Inn on Soi Sansabai offers day passes... but I wouldn't know for sure.

    RE2: Short answer no.... but it depends what you are looking for. 2k would be standard for short or long... though the girls will quote higher (naturally).
    Remember that not getting what you want is sometimes a wonderful stroke of luck.

    Yes , The Yorkshire has a nice courtyard and pool and charges a day fee that isnt too pricey - not sure if that pool/gym set up is still called 'Thai life' , but has a seperate entrance from behind on Soi Expat
    The Expat itself has a simple bar and pool and last I knew it was free to hang there if you frequented the bar/restaurant

    ok this might sound bad and im not sure if anyone else does it but if im staying somewhere without a pool and i feel like cooling down i usually just walk into any of the major hotels with a towel and go for a swim.
    Nobody has said anything yet, i normally buy a couple of beverages while im there.

    I was in Phuket a month ago and the going rate was 1500 short time. I am too lazy to negotiate harder than that now I don't spend much time mongering anymore. I have one advice though if you want to save money: Go to Tai Pan at 4 am and stand near the entrance. Since few of the girls get bar fined in low season it's an excellent hunting ground just after 4. It's not like high season when you only see old men there.

    Like me I think you may be thinking like a westerner.

    I was a thinking I was not where I was supposed to belong when BM Bacwaan took us to some resorts with private beaches. That would certainly be the case in American resorts. But the security guys just waved us on.

    So to was I uncomfortable when the wife would take me to fish on the neighbors pond. So would be puzzled when I asked: "Is it ok for us to be here." Or when I would react when she sat on a strangers motorbike.

    Might be different in some big international chain hotel pools, but do the employees think to ask? 555

    Not one shred of evidence supports the notion that life is serious.

    Procreation(which I understand is still possible without marriage ). Not that I fancy that idea either. I don't think I'd have one ounce of patience for kids. Little turds.

    I assume you jest.

    If you got married, then you likely made a promise not to devastate someone with such an ultimate betrayal.

    Like DP said, just don't do it if you can't maintain your integrity.

    I do find it interesting that so many men who would find it morally reprehensible to walk out on a child, would cheat on their spouse.

    no...not necessarily me.

    but it intrigues me that some speak very highly of their one and only and can't wait for them to be out of sight to play and shag the field 55

    I realize it is Subjective, but I have a hard time seeing how the reward of infidelity offsets the price there is to pay.
