Wish I Hadn't...

Galaxy Entertainment Complex: Pattaya Massage Reviews
Link Here

I'm not a great fan of body massages but thought I'd check this place out when I was in the area. I wish I hadn't.

It's more expensive than the big Pattaya soapies, with fewer and lower quality ladies, worse rooms and bad service. This isn't a place for rich Thais. Bang Saen is the Thai equivalent of Blackpool, full of Thais who can't afford to get to a proper beach resort. I guess Galaxy is a place for Thais who can't afford the Bangkok soapies.

There's no fishbowl, just a row of about 20 seats for the ladies. There were between 3 and 10 girls sitting down at any one time. This compares to up to 100 girls in the big Sabai places in Pattaya. There must have been about 20 Thai guys inside and the good looking ladies were gone as soon as they'd sat down.

I saw a girl I liked and the papasan assured me she had no babies and no tattoos. I paid my 1900 baht but once we got into the room and she undressed I saw a massive tattoo on her back, one on her shoulder and one on her saggy breast. She had a flabby, stretch-marked belly and udder-like breasts which were a total turn off. I was thinking of taking her back and complaining to the papasan but we were already in the bath and if he scammed me before I didn't fancy my chances of a refund.

So I went ahead with it but there was no soapie or jacuzzi, just a bath, a totally lame massage on the bed then I got the rest over as quickly as possible.

The room was freezing cold as they have industrial aircon in them that can't be adjusted or even turned off. It was so cold both I and the girl wanted to leave after 40 minutes were up (I'd paid for 90) so that was it.

You can get a better short time in soi 6 for half the price. If you want a decent soapie check out Sabai Dee for 1600 baht. Stay away from this place.

Update: The Wrong Type of Licence...

Police go on the hunt for bars to close
Link Here

Many bars have been shut by the police in the last few days for supposedly not having the correct licence

2 bars in soi 7 including the big one with all the TVs in opposite Happiness bar and Streamline bar

4-5 bars in soi post office including Coops bar and Kittens and 1 of the blow job bars

and many more round Pattaya

They are having to close for 30 days

Update: A New Type of TV Licence

From Pattaya Secrets

There is a new license that you need for showing video's, DVD's etc, its a government license that isn't the same as the copyright one, once you get it its listed on the company papers.

If you play thai or farang CD's etc then you will still need the copyright license too which is an independent setup.

Update: Yamato Ghost Town

29th January 2008

Soi Yamato & Soi Post Office have taken a hit with temporary bar closures including:

  • Moulin Rouge
  • Coopers
  • Monkey Bar
  • Jungle Bar
  • Nice 'n' Eazy
  • Yates
  • office Girls
  • George+Dragon
  • Spricey Bar
  • Gothia

Update: Main Licence

30th January 2008

Thanks to Paul

A call to the powers that be reveals that the bars mentioned above were closed because they didn't have the required main licence. Nothing to do with TV licences.

Not So Much Fun...

Fun Room goes dark

Fun Room A-GoGo on Soi 15 was dark last night.

The reasons are not yet clear. Perhaps the new Japanese owner is doing the traditional remodelling exercise. Or perhaps he is cutting his losses.

Diamond: Pattaya GoGo Reviews
Link Here

Diamond is a very straightforward gogo which is pretty conservative in terms of entertainment.

It seems to have a good customer base probably from reputations from maybe slightly better times of old. It seems to cater for guys on holiday rather than expats.

It seems to give a good package of reasonably priced drinks, a reasonable show and a reasonable bunch of girls who tend to keep themselves to themselves.

I guess it does the business in terms of entertainment and so keeps customers returning for occasional visits. It misses out on regulars as they simply get to know the bars where the entertainment is a little more sexy.

Or perhaps just where the music is not played quite so loud!

Murderous Touts/Thugs on Soi 15...

Man dies in fight after altercation with gogo touts
Link Here

A disturbing incident occurred on Walking Street in the early hours of Sunday Morning which was initially dealt with by the Tourist Police based on the street.

Three men from Estonia made a complaint at the Tourist Police Mobile Unit regarding a confrontation with three Thai Men in Soi 15. It is thought the men were being ushered into a Show Bar but decided at the last minute that they did not want to go. The Thai men became angry and a fight ensued.

The men were told to make their way to Pattaya Police Station to make a report, however they decided to take matters into their own hands and went back to confront the Thai men. It is thought that more than 15 men set-upon the three Estonian Men.

One managed to run away, a second was hit over the head with a steal pole and a third man was stabbed in the leg with a broken bottle. A major artery in his leg was severed and he was rushed to Hospital. Later on Sunday he died from the injury according to medical staff at the Pattaya Memorial Hospital.

The incident, which is now a murder investigation, occurred only meters away from the Tourist Police Unit and is now being investigated by Pattaya Police and the Tourist Police as the hunt for the attackers continues.

We understand that as of Monday Afternoon, no arrests had been made in connection with the attack.
