On Nut night market, Bangkok, and now sadly closed!

Intro.

For 3 months this year I went to On Nut night market Bangkok just about every night for something to eat and for something to drink, beer that is or the occasional cocktail! Some may say, it was a bit of dump, they would be right, some may say, it was full of piss heads and they would be right! But On Nut night market had a character of its own, a kind of basic stripped down charm with cheap tasty food, cheap beer and local girls to chat up or meet on a date. There are lots of Bangkok Night Markets and this was one of them!

So, what was the night market, well, without stating the obvious, it was a market that opened in the evening. It was located in Bangkok’s On Nut district, opposite On Nut BTS station. some of the food stalls opened about 4pm and the bars from 5pm, the official closing time was midnight. I say the official closing time, because the latest I stopped drinking and left was 4am on a Tuesday!

History

The On Nut night market had been around for about 5 years in On Nut, I do vaguely remember going there in 2011 when it was an open air market. It was a bit of a dump to be honest, when it rained, it flooded, when the lights went out, the big rats come out. I have never seen so rats in one place, the furry things nearly run over my feet several times, don’t you just hate a furry rat!

Beer

Lets talk about beer, well, it was cheap, but there are cheaper places to get pissed in BKK. A large 660ml bottle of Leo was 110 or 100 baht, vodka/red bull 140 baht and my favourite drink was the long island iced tea fromThe Cocktail bar for 160 baht. Those long island iced teas were superb, 5 big shots of alcohol with a slight dash of coke, I still can taste them now at On Nut night market.

Food

The food was pretty good too, kuay teeow gai (chicken noodle soup) was 40 baht and tasted aroi mak mak, the khao pad gai (chicken fried rice) was also aroi for 40 baht. The array of choice for food was simply fantastic, Thai, Japanese and Western dishes, all served up to midnight. I spent many a night eating at the On Nut night market, followed by lots of beer of course.

The clientele

How about the clientele, well, it was not like the sleazy bars of Nana or Patpong, I don’t class Cowboy as sleazy ha ha. Or even like the ex-pat bars along the Sukhumvit, these are normally filled with farang workers who have too much cash to spend on beer and birds! The typical sex-pat didn’t find much joy at On Nut night market, no naked girls for a start, although I did see a Japanese man wearing a Britney Spears “hit me baby one more time” uniform…

It was not a Go Go bar

So, no dancing-girls, no air con (that was a major drawback), no hookers, well, maybe a few, a disgusting 5 baht a piss toilet, not good if you have the runs using a squat toilet you know! The positive points, cheap beer and cheap food, a good mix of Thai and farang to chat to, a 10 minute walk from where I was living and next to the BTS if you fancied watching some naked ladies in Cowboy!

What’s next

The On Nut night market closed on Friday 17th October 2015 and my last night there was 29th July 2015, bit of a late night, drinking Leo, long island iced teas and some shots until 3.45am. There is another night market in Phra Khanong called the W District, which I never visited, so, that is something to do next time when I’m in BKK. Talad Rod Fai (the train market) is a 10 minute taxi ride from On Nut and there is about 20 bars to choose from, as opposed to On Nut night markets 4 bars, but is only open at the weekend.

I did meet some interesting characters at the night market, one of them I cannot mention, very dodgy indeed, but a nice chap all the same. I also used On Nut night market as a meeting point for my dates, I think I met 7 Thai girls and 1 Filipino at the On Nut night market, it pays to be a cheap charlie you know! If you know of any good night markets in Bangkok, then please let me know? It wasn’t ideal, but time moves on and the area is scheduled for a condo block or shops. It was the Best Night Market in Bangkok!

Different Countries Tourist Place Travelling

Which country?

For a first time sex traveler, it is easiest to check the commonly known destinations from Wikipedia’s Sex tourism page. These include Brazil, Costa Rica, Cuba, the Dominican Republic, Kenya, the Netherlands, the Philippines, Colombia and Thailand.

Then it depends what kind of holiday you want and what kind of women you like. Do you like to relax or party, lay on a beach or only fuck days and nights? You need to think about the atmosphere too. In some countries you can lay back and in others you need to be secured all the time. Your holiday is easily ruined if you meet some bad girls, thieves etc.

Asian beach heaven for a first timer

For example, if you want a beach holiday and a Asian lady, I would go to Patong beach, Phuket in Thailand. There is a single walking road where all the hundreds of girls are located and at the end of the road there is a perfect beach, with jet skis and other kind of activities. There is some girl friendly luxury hotels near the beach too, remember to ask how much a visitor costs you per night. Normally it’s like 1500 bahts (50$) per girl.

Ebony heaven with (mostly big) chicas

If you like black women a good place to start is Sosua in Dominican Republic. There is some nice beaches, but those beaches don’t have jet ski or other fast activities. Dominican Republic is a great place especially for people who visit or live near USA. It takes only couple hours to fly to Puerto Plata (Sosua’s airport) from Miami for example.

The night life is fucking crazy (but boring too…). I mean in the walking road (Pedro Clisante) at nights there are only working girls, drugs and guns. So just walk and you don’t even need to ask to get viagra, extacy, cocaine, weed or pussy. There isn’t any cool flashing lights or beats like in Phuket’s Bangla Road.

So you just need to sit a bar (Rumba is a good place to start), order something and wait until you see a perfect girl. Remember to wait, there are lots of girls who want your money, but you can get a quality girl only by seeking one for a long time.

The best place in Sosua is definitely La Passions. You can not find better looking girls elsewhere in Sosua. Most of the girls there are really nice too, definitely girlfriend material and quality time. Only problem is that you can not get a real girl friend experience or be with the girls many days, because they have to return to the bar at about 10 am.

But if you like some one there, you can always return for example 6 pm and pay 5 000 Dominican pesos (130$) to take the girl with you again. If you go 10 pm, taking overnight costs 3 500 pesos etc. La Passions’ manager is a great person too.

A Brief Outline of Heathrow Airport in London, UK

Before you travel through time inside the British Museum, get a bird’s eye view of the city aboard the London Eye, or marvel at the visual spectacles of Madame Tussauds, you have to pass through a world-famous gateway known as Heathrow Airport.

For some, the airport is an obvious reminder about the city’s reputation in the tourism industry, but for others, it signifies the start (or the end) of a wonderful adventure. Heathrow sees more than 1,000 air transport movements with close to 200,000 passengers every day. From the parking spaces to the retail areas, its 1,227-hectare area boasts an array of first-class facilities. With that, here’s a brief outline of Heathrow Airport.

Outside

Heathrow is amongst the top five busiest airports in the world, according to Business Insider. That, and the aforementioned daily travellers’ statistics, can easily create havoc when it comes to parking spaces. Luckily, the airport sets aside almost £1 billion every year to constantly upgrade all its facilities from the outside in.

A parking aggregator in the UK categorizes Heathrow’s car bays as the standard (short stay and long stay), the luxury (business, meet and greet, and valet), and the alternative (hotel with parking). Of course, London is highly regarded, as having excellent public transportation systems, thus commuting to the airport isn’t so bad for travellers after all. Parking4Less suggest the quickest way to the airport from central London is via the Heathrow Express, which only takes a mere 15 minutes. The website also points out the London Underground’s Piccadilly Line as the least expensive mode of travel.

Inside

The five terminals of Heathrow offer a comforting experience to every passenger. For one, the airport entitles them to 45 minutes of free Internet connectivity – a little indulgence for all travellers. In terms of high-end fashion, there are the likes of Alexander McQueen, Prada, Tiffany & Co.

There are also WHSmith bookshops inside Terminals 3 and 4, where travellers can choose from a range of fiction and non-fiction titles. From luxury dining in Heston Blumenthal’s The Perfectionists’ Café, to 15-minute snacks at Pret A Manger and Bridge Bar, Heathrow presents a plethora of food choices. If shopping and dining isn’t your thing, you can just sit back and be amazed at all the majestic carriers flying through the airport at the Observation Deck. The area features a 270-degree view of Heathrow Airport’s runways – a perfect way to cap off a lazy afternoon.
