    And that is why I don't mind the little bit that I see in Thailand. Even in the party town places like the well known roads in Pattaya, or the small areas like Soi Cowboy and Nana Plaza, or parts of Phuket. All I see is people laughing and having fun. Sure you see drunks, but you never see people high on heroin or meth. Yes, if you hunt for it you can find people using yaba, but that is the exception rather than the rule. There is no question that in rural villages there are many Thai men who are barely functioning alcoholics, but availability of good paying jobs might be part of the cause.

    You are saying it's hard to find Thais using Yabba?
    You obviously don't go to many Thai only entertainment areas .....

    Not saying it is hard to find. What I am saying is you have to go looking for it. Why would I spend any time in a Thai entertainment area? I don't speak Thai, I seldom drink alcohol and I don't do drugs. I've often been asked to join a bunch of Thai men sitting around drinking whiskey. I politely decline with a smile. A few times when I've been with a Thai only crowd I try to be polite and maybe buy a drink or two, but it just doesn't interest me. At Nid's opening of her café shop that I financed, I stayed as long as was polite, but I frankly find it boring.

    Bringing home the beer and whiskey



    Before the men got home to start the serious drinking







    And when there is free food and booze then Thai parties can last forever.

    You couldn't pay me to be anywhere near the losers who go to Pattaya.

    Obviously. Not every guy who goes to Pattaya is like this. Plenty of normal guys.
    But there is so many losers and lowlifes that outweigh even anything close to a positive....for me
    I find just as many losers in Patong and Bangkok... relatively... it's just Pattaya is so big, so naturally there are more of them. And it's that size that makes Pattaya so appealing... you can pick your spots...

    I'm off to Patts for a week early January.
    Staying in a good modern hotel, looking forward to it.
    You don't have to slum it there anymore, unless you really want to.

    I don't get why you are so judgemental of the place. Smacks of elitism just a tad.
    No better or worse than Bangkok, or Phuket, even parts of Chiang Mai or Samui.
    You might as well judge any place by one or two of their streets.
    I'd say there are plenty of places in the world more worthy of that description, in the Phils for example.
    I wouldn't take my holidays in Lagos, or Caracas, but some do and they like it.

    Your post makes no sense.
    I personally think Pattaya is a shit hole.
    As you do Lagos and Caracas.......

    That doesn't make me an elitist because I think a place is a shit hole.
    I just think it's a shit hole

    I have still never been, I think it is too seedy for me. I like the Phuket ratio of beaches to nightlife better. But I am willing to concede I may be wrong having never seen it.

    I obviously get a lot of feedback on the place and it has only further deepened my lack of desire not to go.
    Never argue with an idiot, he will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience. M.T.

    I actually just think it's a shot hole.....in other words, just not an attractive place .

    But what you said always factored into my dislike of it.....or should I say, not wanting to go back there.
    This could be just a delusion of myself........but even though I was partaking in p4p plenty, I felt like a loser by flying across the world and in some place that is almost entirely geared to p4p.

    And I said "I felt like a loser" not that anyone else is for going there......it is my personal hangup.

    As you said......back when I was partaking in p4p, Phuket had a great ratio of regular tourism and entertainment for me

    It really is a matter of the experiences you have in a place, and how it makes you feel personally.
    When I stayed at the Marriott resort in Patts, I frankly could have cared less what was outside.
    When my shirts came back from the laundry, they were all packaged up like new ones...555
    I noted a BM comment yesterday who said he would love to holiday in Phuket, but his wife had written the place off saying she would never go back. So he can go solo...555
