Sagesex presents: The Bangkok Skytrain Change Event. Goodbye Thailand. Featuring Wind of Change – Thailand’s inofficial national anthem. This song is playing everywhere across the country, and it fits this place better than any other country in the world. Attention: This art is good.
Thailand has been the first stop on the Sagesex World Tour 2010 and we’ve been here for about five weeks. In a few hours we’ll be in Cambodia. Although it’s supposed to be very wise to renounce judgement as much as possible, we think it’s time to sum up a few subjective observations according to some totally subjective criteria. Whether you think about traveling here, have been here before and want to laugh at the way we misunderstand the world, or simply want to find out more about a fascinating culture – welcome to the great sagesex travel review Thailand part 1.
Fruit and vegetables, flowers and dirt cheap surf wear – sounds like a strange mixture? The night market next to Chayo Phraya River near Memorial Bridge in Bangkok offers all that – simply follow the unending stream of people who start their shopping spree here at sundown. Beside the huge choice of cool clothing, which especially attracts Bankok’s hip youth, one thing inspired us more than anything again: The mile of food stalls that boil, barbecue, and deep-fry most absurd snacks. Only for you, sagesex has tried the pearls of the snack whoopee, all according to the motto “don’t ask – bite off”. Here are some of our favorites: Read the rest of this entry »

1. A true classic: Mistakenly approach a lady boy (when you’re actually into girls)
2. Your flip-flops die an early death and you wonder if that’s a rat rushing over your feet while you steal WiFi in a dark Bangkok alley (talk about reader service!) – but luckily it’s just a cockroach!
Who could resist a Thai mama on the sidewalk selling undefinable mash
and soup served in plastic bags? I surely cannot – fortunately, for the
plastic bag stew turned out to be one of our favorites. It’s
worth 20 Baht in any case. Excited about the look of it we spontanely
decide to call it “crass stuff”. Happy about our discovery we walk on,
hoping that the boiling hot bag might soon reach eating temperature.
Maybe it was a portent that this cute girl I approached in the park this afternoon turned out to be a ladyboy. Damn! Still, right on time for curfew at about two we start our journey into Bangkok’s nightlife.
