In my view Romantic Thailand is a figment of the Travel Writers imagination.Thailand Does Not have the Romance and Charm of Countries like France and Italy. Of course people will Site Pi Pi Island and Kho Tao as being romantic, while there are plenty of beautiful sights here this alone does not justify the tag Romantic!! What Thailand does have in abundance is Beddable Women. As regards Thai Women Beautiful they may be often amusing but Romantic NO WAY!! So while “Romantic Thailand” may be a misnomer What Thailand in fact does it does quite well it is Cheap,Hot and you can get Layed pretty much everywhere!!
Something which I frequently notice here is the level of sheer Boredom endured by Amorous Falang and their Sexy Thai Lady.I watch them wandering around Town unable to communicate in any meaningful way. Apart from Sex which only takes up a small part of their 24 Hours constantly being in One another s Company quite quickly begins to pall! I rather tend to think that the single Falang who hangs out with like minded Men venturing out to the Girly Bars for excitement have a better time.
The reason for my stating the above is quite simple,whilst a lot of Men,Possibly the majority would like to have a Relationship with just One Thai Woman.The chances of anything but a tiny percentage of these Guys having found a Genuine (Not a Gold-Digger) Thai Woman are slim to non existent. I am therefore of the opinion that at least with Bar-Girls you know what you are getting and how much it is going to cost,if they attempt to Rip You Off you simply move on to the next!! I admit that my assessment is pretty Bleak but I would not be writing these things if I did not believe them to be true!!
Interestingly the latest Add on BBC World News for Thai Holidays features a gang of single British Men. One imagines that the Thai’s have rather given up on trying to attract the lucrative 5 Star Family Holiday crowd.The Thai Tourism Authority are in fact playing to their strengths ,Single Men with lots of disposable income looking for Sun,Sea and Sex!! The above after all is what Romantic Thailand has become known for!!
Many Falang try starting a small Business in Romantic Thailand for example a Bar or Restaurant as a way of occupying their time. A business is fine as long as you understand at the outset that you will inevitably lose money. From staff who cannot be bothered to turn up for work to the sad reality that Thai’s (Many of whom have lots of Money) will not frequent a Falang Business while the Falang who live here are in the main as poor as Church Mice!!. If you are able to run a small business and break even you have done very well.
The only Falang business which does well in Thailand is Tesco the British Supermarket Giant,they had to partner with a local firm Lotus.There is little doubt that Tesco however are the dominant Partner.With over One Thousand stores Tesco is the largest retailer in Thailand.In order to be allowed to reach this position of preeminence Tesco will have had to pay enormous bribes to Thailand’s top Politicians, in fact so successful have Tesco become that they even operate their own Land Bank.
Readers may notice that the one thing I never suggest any Falang do in Romantic Thailand is Marry a Thai Lady and build a House in Her Village. Many Falang have done exactly this and I really wish that I had figures which would prove my suspicions that in far too many cases the house is kept by the Woman and Her Family while the Falang is chased out of the Village. No matter how good a relationship you may think you have with any group of Thai’s when things start to go wrong between you and your Thai Lady You are On Your Own!!
In writing my Blog I am attempting to instill some joined up thinking into the minds of Randy Western Men who picture Thailand as an Idyllic Paradise full of Gentle Dusky Maidens!! While Thailand undoubtedly has many of the most Beautiful Women on Earth,they are not the gentle submissive creatures which Foolish Western Men picture them to be!! In fact Thailand is one of the Worlds most dangerous Countries for Westerners and Thai Women number amongst them some of the Cruelest most acquisitive people on the Planet!!
Of the some 280 British people who Die in Thailand every year the vast majority Die in Pataya.Falang I talk to who know Thailand and in particular Pataya talk of the Elderly Western Men who fall from the Balconies of their Condo.The suspicion exists that some of them had a little help in getting over the Railing!! In one case a Thai Wife who hit Her Husband on the back of the head with an iron before hoisting him off the Balcony was charged with his Murder after the Post Mortem discovered a perfect imprint of the Iron on his Skull! Take my advice if Marrying a Thai Lady live on the Ground Floor!!
P.S The reason that it only appears to be Condos which come with complimentary flying lessons i.e. Falangs helped over the Balcony railings is quite simple. A falang can legally own the title deeds on a Condo.I am not quite sure of the legalities but I think if a building is predominantly occupied by Thais then Falangs are allowed to buy there own Condo.Therefore the Thai Lady cannot simply throw the Falang out,what She has to do to acquire ownership is have Her Falang make a will leaving the Condo to Her, then She can throw him out, or rather OFF the balcony!!!
