    I think there are a couple of older threads about this in the bottom of strikistan somewhere that were pretty good it would be cool to edit them into the op

Its run by Sean Douglas from the states.
    Ugh, personally I fucking hate Khao San Road. Those disgusting roach infested guest houses smell of piss and everything there is overpriced. It doesnt even look like Bangkok around there. I suggest staying at a different area in Bangkok like Saphan Kwai and Nana District (my favourite, hehe). In these places you pay only a few hundred Baht more for a nice 3-4 star hotel than you for a disgusting little room in Khao San where you will undoubtly share your room with rats and cockroaches.

    I liked Nana Hotel. Certainly not the cleanest or best priced hotel in BKK but its worth checking out just because of the location. Its right across the street from Nana Plaza, a three story complex of GoGo bars and Beer bars and the basement of the Hotel is actually a nighclub where all the hoes go after they finish their shifts at the strip joints across the street.

    An absolutely crazy place.

    since it seems like we are going to have to talk about it, is prostitution actually legal in thailand or just really, really laxly enforced or what? Because it's all anybody will ever talk about after they get back (I suspect giving insight into how sex deprived they are in the states)

    Technically its illegal. That law is never enforced though. The brothels and shady bars are all partly owned by corrupt policemen. Its in your face on every corner in some parts of the country and nothing is considered more normal. Thais look at it in a different way than us. For them, its just a temporary job to get a little extra money. The girls send that cash to their families and make their lives a little easier.

    hey draven I have a question for you. If I ever decide to go to a thai training camp, would I be subjected to blatant prejudice just because I am black? and also, why do thais hate black people in the first place?

    I basically sold myself on going over there next summer, my friend's dad is a pilot for Delta so I might be able to get myself a buddy pass, essentially a free ticket anywhere Delta flies to. With the dollars current situation this might change, but how much should one save up for a 2-3 month's stay?

    QFT!

    It's quite normal to hear choruses of "Hello Sexy man!" and literally be dragged off the streets towards a bar.

    In my experiences, I found that the locals tolerate the sex tourists but have no respect for them. When they found out we were there for Boxing and nothing else, they loved us. The hotel staff would jump on us shouting Muay Thai! and have little play fights as we were walking through the lobby, the shop owners throw playful punches etc.

    As Draven said, they love respect and if you bow and say Sawatdee ka/kup, they love you.
