Re: Vice prices to skyrocket in LOS

:please: What is a "soapy massage" ? Why is this massage targeted for a hefty price increase ? And why are the prices regulated by the government anyway ? Tax on soap ? A soapy massage is when the girl gets in the tub with you and washes you by sliding over your body. She's free to use any part of ...

Re: Koh Phangan cop accused of assault, drug extortion against tourists

Ain't that the truth. While I quit the "funland" activities 4-5 years ago, the decline in fun has been even more steep.

Re: Anyone in KoW agree with NJH's views?

Moving to southern Vietnam this summer for a last try. I am in Southern Vietnam at the moment. Temporary posting which is good, I worked in the Delta 6 years before. I like it here but it is not the place I would spend the next 10 years in. Best as I know, I am the only foreigner in town, sidewalks...

Re: Anyone in KoW agree with NJH's views?

If I knew where to go, I'd probably bail too. The people arriving today are not real expats. Siem Reap FB page is now all about where to find vegan, gluten-free, Matcha and where to get the Hipster beard trimmed. WTF!!!! When I first came to Vietnam and Cambodia, all we cared about was finding a co...

Re: Vietnam Introduces E-Visas for 40 countries

I am planning a major moto ride there. I have read so many Vietnam memoirs lately on my Kindle, really cheap history books. I may visit every US Firebase there, on their lonely mountain tops and write a book. The best fiction book about Vietnam is The 13th Valley about the A Shau, there were severa...

Re: Koh Phangan cop accused of assault, drug extortion against tourists

As for Pattaya, I lived on the Dark Side for 3 years, a 10-min ride to the Beach (when Central Road and Suk weren't blocked by construction). It's sane and quite, yes, but a lot of nice locals and expats living there. I never lack for something to do. Ive heard a few good things about the 'Dark Sid...
