Welcome to my website.  Unlike the universe, this website has a purpose: to offer rants, tirades, opinions and discussion about books on Thailand, give an overview of nightlife in Thailand and, yes, to provide a few news items which might not appear elsewhere.  And to have some fun.

Bar, club and restaurant owners who would like to send material on their special events, birthday bashes, anniversary parties, etc., are welcome to do so but please remember men in Thailand are a bit jaded so if you’re just going to offer the usual free gourmet food and free full band entertainment and free beautiful and eager-to-please women, well, the lads have been there, done that. So do try to offer potential patrons something special. ;-)

There is a contest every two weeks when this column appears and the first to answer the question correctly or identify a photograph correctly will receive vouchers worth at least 3,500 baht in food and drink, i.e., 500 baht each, from Larry's Dive, Shadow Bar, The Old Dutch, the Big Mango, Electric Blue, The Duke of Wellington pub, and Bourbon Street Restaurant. The prizes will build up in case anyone doesn't win it immediately so the bonanza for the eventual winner could get quite interesting.  It will double to 7,000 and, if still no winner, to 10,500, etc.  Second prize is a "I Support Single Moms" T-shirt.  And please remember a part of all money received from the sale of my books goes to needy Thais (in the form of payment to go go dancers, waitresses and hostesses).



Santa Says:

Christmas is coming!  Buy books for gifts!  Or be punished!

(For those of you into S&M buy books or you won't be punished!)

A lovely lady at Nataree Massage, Radjapisek.  Many and perhaps most of the girls working there are from northern Thailand, Chiang Rai, etc., not from the northeast of Thailand.  So if you like light-complexioned women there they are. Or, as the Laotians say, your skin is as light as the inside of the trunk of a banana tree (don't try that line in Harlem).



*********************  ********************* 































I hadn't been to Luang Prabang since 1975 so it seemed time to go again.  I think in those days I flew a Royal Air Lao Airline plane and was accompanied by a Chinese wife.  This time I did it on Bangkok Airways turbo prop and arrived in one hour and forty minutes.  And this time no Chinese wife.  Visa on arrival was easy despite the airline's originally informing me that Americans cannot enter on visa on arrival.  Just bring one picture and thirty dollars in American money, no problem. And once I got to the (only) immigration booth, or one of two, I forget, I knew I was in for a good time.  The girls - and they were quite young - both laughed and joked with me and on their uniforms were a few items of personal jewelry.  Just what we all need from time to time: a really relaxed laidback vacation with no plans to do anything but drink lots of Lao beer and read a few books.  And the Laotians are a very polite, hospitable people.


The town is surrounded by rivers and mountains and the setting couldn't be better.  It is a World Heritage Site so there are no tall buildings or double-decker busses full of gawking tourists, and traffic in the town is so light I was usually able to ride a bike down the center street without any problem.  Of course, I did forget yet again to pack a long-sleeved shirt although I do know that these places can be cold in the mornings.  So, sure enough, after a couple of days of hot, sunny weather the weather changed.  A few hours of rain and then four grey days: often pleasantly cool, sometimes damn chilly.  Foreigners and Laotians alike were wearing jackets.  The day I took a boat trip up the river in an open narrow boat it was cold as hell and despite a windbreaker, two short-sleeved undershirts and two short-sleeved shirts, I froze my derriere off.  Fortunately, we stopped a a village along the way known as "Whiskey Village" and I sampled some of their 50 percent proof moonshine and that helped.  And at the end of the trip the weather changed again to beautiful sunshine.


Is there really enough to do there for seven days and nights?  Actually, yes.  There are two or more different waterfalls worth seeing, caves along the river with hundreds of Buddha images, elephant riding, and day trips down river or up river, plus bicycling and yes, you can rent motorcycles.  There are a few used book stores.  One thing I did remember to do was to bring three of my own books to see if I could trade them for others.  At one store I managed to trade all three for a copy of Chekov's The Duel and other Short Stories and a copy of Conrad's Lord Jim.  I think that would be known as trading upwards.  (They even had a copy of Kay Danes' Nightmare in Laos: The true story of a Woman Imprisoned in a Communist Gulag. Maybe the censorship board was out for a beer when that book was passed as OK for sale.)  But the real fun was walking the town and every now and then stopping at a cafe and having Laotian coffee or a beer or a good breakfast or stopping at a bakery.  It's all there: Belgian beer, German ice cream, Russian coffee, Western desserts, pizza, hamburger and fries.  As well as some really good Laotian and Thai food.


The museum is worth a visit - a quick one.  It was once the palace of the King of Laos.  And if you don't know, he and some of his family were starved to death by the communists in a cave area, probably Sam Nua, in the northeast of the country in the late 1970's.  The building set aside for tourists does sell a map of the town for very little money but does not offer any free map of Luang Prabang.  And yet there was plenty of material on Yunnan province which was great with me because I am heading there next year.  I believe Bangkok Airways and others flies there so most likely the material came from them.


Guesthouses are all over now and yes, there are backpackers, but it is not crammed with them like Khao San Road.  I asked one woman loaded down with a huge backpack trudging up the hillside by the Mekong River how long she'd been on her river ride.  She answered, "Two days."  A bit long for long-in-the-tooth types like me, I think.  I was planning a visit to Vang Vieng if possible but the express bus takes five hours one way and I think it is only three hours from Vientiane so I'll wait on that visit.  My stay at the Riverside Guesthouse was a quiet one with the usual noise of geese, cocks and dogs in the early morning hours.  It was on the bank of the Nam Khan river which branches off from the Mekong, so you can easily find a guesthouse facing either river.  The fellow who owned my guesthouse (only 8 rooms) spoke quite good English and was a cool guy:


Me: In Thailand farangs can't buy houses; could I buy one here?


Him: No.


Me: Well, farangs can't buy land either; could I buy any in Laos?


Him: No.


Me: Oh, well we can buy condos in Thailand now.  Could I buy one here?


Him: We don't have any.


Duh, oh, yeah, come to think of it, you don't.  I don't even think the capital has any. 


One of the wonderful things about Luang Prabang is that there are no supermarkets and no 7-11's.  Mom and Pop stores have what you need.  Guesthouses range from backpacker places near the deservedly popular Joma Cafe to the Amantaka Hotel which charges $1200 for its top suite.  But remember not all of the guesthouses are cheap.  I paid only $40 for my room but larger guesthouses in my area went for $100 a night.  The 3 Nagas ranges from $165 to $340 for its executive suite.  And the Phou Vao hotel up on its own little hill is also expensive.  I visited the hotels to have a drink at night, to check out the chicks working there, and to see if there was any action.  The lack of guests in the hotels was embarrassing and the hotels were mainly silent, with staff walking about with little to do.  The Amantaka is part of a luxury chain of hotel across Asia and elsewhere and to my surprise I used to work with the Chairman of the Board and his brothers when they put out Orientations magazine in Hong Kong so long ago.  There is also a hotel called Le Parasol Blanc.  Behind it is a great setting of a lotus pond and a restaurant (Dok Bua or Lotus) overlooking the pond.  You can see the dancers on the stage in a picture up above. 


What's that?  What about sex?  Well, twice I was asked by tuk tuk drivers if I wanted a "Lao lady" and I thanked them but said Phom Gae Lao, I'm old.  They laughed and went off but not before one asked if I wanted "smoke."  So I guess Maryjane is there as well.  The tuk tuks are like those in Thailand but some of them have elongated seats so they become a combination of a song taew and a tuk tuk.  The Laotians understood a lot of my Thai, especially my small amount of Issarn Thai.  But they do not use "khrab" at the end of the sentence and they just say "Sabaidee" as a greeting and "kopjai" for thank you.  It took me some time to get out of the habit of using "Kab khun, khrab."


Here are three of the 12 regulations on my hotel wall exactly as written: "Do not any drugs, crambling or bring both women and men which is not your own husband or wife into the room for making love.  Do not allow domestic and international bring prostitute into your accommodation to make sex moving in our room, it is restriction.  If you do not follow this accommodation regulation you will be fight based on Lao PDR Law.  Police Department, Lao People's Democratic Republic."


The Night Market is a real highlight with beautifully made silk and cotton products as well as food, etc.  Bargain of course.  It was a really relaxing trip in a laidback town with all the land and water tours you could want; or you could just have a beer, read a book and relax.

Christopher Moore had a signing for his new book, The Corruptionist, at the Texas Lone Star Saloon, Washington Square.  In the picture at left Chris is chatting with the nefarious blockbuster writer Stephen Leather.  Thanksgiving dinner was free and fun was had by all.  The only thing I can't figure out is that whenever I have a reading in the Lone Star the girls hit on me for drinks - fair enough.  But during Chris's signing they left him alone and still hit on me.  Do I have Jai Dee written on my forehead?




I was in Rawhide Bar on Soi Cowboy the other night and I have to say the young ladies know how to treat a fellow.  There are sexy dancers all over and sometimes dance at your area instead of just on stage and the whole bar is a wild show.  And don't forget to admire the psychedelic ceiling.  Tilac and Shebas were swinging as well.  In fact, on a Saturday Tilac was so crowded it was hard to get a seat - and that is not a small bar!  250 girls working there, I am told.  And, oh yes, Dollhouse had some cute ones as well once they got back from being barfined.



Yes, it was Bully's Pub last contest; and lots of folks got it.

Khun Nana's Corner

Khun Nana is a savvy local expat who keeps in shape by hitting most of the bars of Nana Plaza as often as possible.  From his vast experience, he will enlighten and entertain us with his recollections of the bar scene be they humorous, tragic or somewhere in between.

More and more guys are choosing to date normal Thai gals instead of restricting their pool of potential lasses to the one’s who hug chrome poles or are otherwise engaged in sex for sale.  This certainly is a good thing as far as I am concerned, but it also brings about new challenges as it is no longer a simple pay for play scenario.  No matter how much criticism is aimed at the sex industry, the one big upside to the professional gals is that all you need is money in your pocket.  You don’t need to be handsome, rich, personable or even presentable.  It is strictly pay as you go, or as one of my mates calls it “point and shoot.”   

I have always played in both the professional and normal gal arenas and it has really been a pleasure and education to see the world from both angles.  With the professional gals becoming more mercenary as time goes by, and the normal Thai gals becoming much more open to meeting western guys during this same period of time, it has become inevitable that more guys will cross over to the other side, or as my Sunderland mate likes to say “cross over to the light side.” 

So with this theme in mind I would like to offer the following words of advice to any guy who has spent the majority of his time in Thailand with pros, but from time to time has wondered just how to act if he chose to cross over to the other side: 

1)You will need to dress and act more appropriately.  Wear smart clothes and be polite at all times. 

2)NEVER lose your cool under any circumstances. 

3)Smile and have fun. There is no bigger turn off for a Thai gal than a serious guy. 

4)Awaken your spirit of adventure. Normal Thai gals will show you a side of Thailand that you never thought existed. 

5)Be a man. Guys may be going “metro-sexual” in the west, but in Thailand the man is the boss and makes all the important decisions. Be polite but don’t take any crap from the ladies. When I first meet a lady I employ what I like to call my “one strike and you are out” rule. The first month or so if they show up late without calling, ask me for money, raise their voice at me or use foul language then I delete their phone number and move on. With bar gals the biggest issue is normally money. With normal gals my biggest issue has been that they want to marry you.  Many get very jealous and possessive right away, and it is not unusual for a gal to want you to be her boyfriend after just 1 or 2 dates.  Don’t despair guys, I am only talking about 30% or so of the gals being whacko like that.

6)Learn some Thai. Bar girls can all speak a smattering of broken English but many normal Thai gals have studied English from first grade and are still shy to use it in public.

 7)Be discreet. In Thailand there is the public world and the private world. If you go to brothels and sleep with a different hooker every night, but act like a gentleman around your lady, then you are a good man.  If she sees you having a cup of coffee in Starbucks with a female friend then you are a bad man.  Thai men rarely leave the bar with a pro, they use the rooms upstairs in the nightlife establishment or at least go to a short time hotel and have the staff pull the curtain to cover up their automobile.  This concept of a public world and private world seems to be especially difficult to grasp for western guys, but is at the heart of all things Thai. 

8)Protect your freedom. Like I mentioned before, some gals will try to “fast forward” the relationship and become your girlfriend right away. Always remember that paradise is not paradise any more if you have a weight (girlfriend) around your neck. Be patient. There are millions of Thai gals dying to have a foreign boyfriend, but only a few thousand of us. We hold all the cards. 

I hope this short list has helped in some way. The real wild card here is understanding Thai culture and the way things work over here. As one friend of mine said when referring to a mutual acquaintance who has lived here for years and has yet to learn a single thing about Thai ways “when he meets a new gal it is like he showed up to a football game with ice skates on.. It’s going to be ugly.”

Until next time.  Khun Nana

I must say I was very impressed with the new president of Thai Airways International, Dr. Piyasvasti Amranand.  He spoke at the Foreign Correspondents Club of Thailand (FCCT) and was very outspoken in his talk as well as when answering questions.  So if like me (I used to publish and edit their inflight magazine, Sawasdee) you have been bemoaning the decline of a once highly regarded airline, take heart, this fellow is serious about turning it around.  At Oxford he earned first-class honors in math and took his doctorate from the London School of Economics and he's been Minister of Energy, etc.  He has three things going for him: brains, guts and the fact that he has been given full control to do what needs to be done. Maybe now is the time to buy shares in the airline?


The Doms of Demonia

Oh, those naughty doms from Demonia.  On Halloween they brought their slaves over to Music Station and now on November 28th they did it again.  Well, it was fun and the band (two a week, I believe) at Music Station are quite good although the space is small so the music is loud.  God only knows where the Demonia ladies will turn up next...

Letters from Readers


Attn: Mr. Barrett, Well, I guess I am glad you are back from your latest trip but it is all getting a bit wearing.  Between your trips (website down) and Mike's trips at (website down) and Dave-the-Rave's trips (website down), finding up-to-date entertainment/information on the Internet is like trying to find an old lady's breasts by poking at her shirt with chopsticks.  And of course the reasons given for all of these trips is some personal family thing.  How lame. I don't have any personal family life so why should you?  It is time to face up to your website administrator responsibilities and recognize the fact that the readers come first.  Please, no more trips and no more bleating about personal issues.  It is all about us (or is it we). Helpfully yours, A Fan You Will Never Guess


Could it be, that in addition to having the capability to write acerbic, humorous, sardonic, supercilious letters, khun Dana is actually a mind-reader as well?  Because this is precisely the question I have been grappling with.  At the end of 2009 this column will have gone on for 5 years.  A long time for a column.  And fun as it is to write the column, it definitely eats into my novel writing time.  Also, in the first three years, I never missed a column, during the second year only one, and during this year I missed three.  No more "personal family thing" though as they have all passed away but I will be traveling a lot in the new year and also writing books more on China than on Thailand, so I tentatively decided to give the column a rest.  But now I realize khun Dana - stranded and forlorn in snow-bound Boston - would be crushed.  And so I have decided in 2010 to go to a once-a-month column; every first of the month, a new column and of course a new contest. After three or four months, I should be able to tell if that is working well.  I also hope to do more videos and add more background information to the website and this should free up some time.  So thanks again, khun Dana, for your perspicuity and keen insight and "helpfully yours" advice.


Hi Dean, Hope this email finds you well.
I am glad you discussed Major Hasan. I become tired of hearing how Islam is a religion of peace, it is not. As you pointed out, "Islam is HATE." Political correctness will kill us all.
I wish the Femnazis and NGOs would realize that evil in our time is not middle age white men that go to Thailand and focus on a real threat, Islam.
Khun Nana commented: "Probably the most puzzling aspect of living in the Playboy’s paradise that we call Thailand is the seemingly endless supply of western guys who come here to have a bit of fun and end up becoming convinced that their favorite hooker has become their girlfriend." I enjoy his comments, but he has been away from the West for a long time. Stream of consciousness: "Dating age-appropriate women. Broken dates. Wrinkled skin. 200 to 250 pounds. Nasty. Smelly. In love with their dogs. No sex without preconditions. Does not like my friends. Does not like my activities, Bossy….." In my opinion, it is worth all of my money to feel the skin of an 18 to 22 year old Thai bar girl, just once. All the rest is gravy. As Ron Adams ("The Death of Ron Adams" from Murder at the Horny Toad Bar) stated: "It wasn’t until I came here [Thailand] that I came alive. This has been the best year of my life." That is why these western guys give all their money to their favorite hooker/girlfriend. Because at the end of the day, it was worth it.
Enjoy Thailand. Wish I was there. Cheers, Steven



Steven, well said.  I often say that sometimes it is more fun with a Thai girl even if one gets taken for a ride a bit than it is to be "dating" in the West.  But that's just me...  Living back in the West is one thing I could never do.

Ibn Warraq:

The cartoons in the Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten raise the most important question of our times: freedom of expression. Are we in the west going to cave into pressure from societies with a medieval mindset, or are we going to defend our most precious freedom -- freedom of expression, a freedom for which thousands of people sacrificed their lives? A democracy cannot survive long without freedom of expression, the freedom to argue, to dissent, even to insult and offend...Unless, we show some solidarity, unashamed, noisy, public solidarity with the Danish cartoonists, then the forces that are trying to impose on the Free West a totalitarian ideology will have won; the Islamization of Europe will have begun in earnest.

    The Islamization of Europe

    Muslims are rapidly destroying freedom in Europe and have even brought about self-censorship and real censorship in the United States.  But there is one city in Holland where a new reality can be seen with the naked eye, more than anywhere else. Here, entire neighborhoods look as if they have been lifted from the Middle East, here stand the largest mosques in Europe, here parts of sharia law are applied in the courts and theaters, here many of the women go around veiled, here the mayor is a Muslim, the son of an imam.  This city is Rotterdam, Holland's second largest city by population, and the largest port in Europe by cargo volume.  Europeans, especially politicians, will not lift a finger to fight against Islamofascism.  And future generations will pay the price. 

    The hate-filled Quran (Koran) consistently uses offending remarks whenever it mentions non-Muslims. It describes non-Muslims as animals (Q.7: 179, Q.25: 44, Q.47: 12). Then it describes the Jews as donkeys Q. 62:5 then as apes and pigs (Q.2: 65, Q. 5:60, Q. 7:166). To be described as an animal is a bad insult in Arabic culture, but pigs, apes and donkeys are particularly bad.  "Religion of Peace," my ass. 


    Please note, I do not and never would advocate violence against individual Muslims in any community.  For one thing, the guy you beat up with a baseball bat may turn out to have just escaped from some horrible Islamic regime.  Individual violence against Muslims or doing damage to mosques, etc., is just stupid and is also counterproductive as Muslim fanatics will show pictures of that all over the Muslim world to incite people against the West. 

    A good case can be made that Islam is a fanatical brotherhood masquerading as a religion, and, indeed, the adherents of Islam often act that way.   But, as individuals, a Muslim neighbor might possibly be more honest than a Christian neighbor.  It is only that the Muslim will have been brought up in a religion/brotherhood with a medieval mindset that is centuries behind the times and has a penchant for violence, especially against those who criticize the Koran and other aspects of Islam.   Winning the war against Muslim fanatics will take a long time and be hard-fought but it can and will be won.  But we must demand that more and more moderate Muslims join the fight against fanatical Muslims.   We must demand that our leaders absolutely reject any "compromise" on our right to free expression.  Compromising with the fanatics pulls the rug out from the Muslim moderates desperately trying to reform and secularize Islam.  And we must never bow to Muslim demands to curb our hard-won freedom of expression.   And freedom of expression always includes satire and even insulting satire including satire of glorified tribal myths called religion.

    “The religion of the future will be a cosmic religion.  It should transcend a personal god and avoid dogmas and theology.  Covering both the natural and the spiritual, it should be based on a religious sense arising from the experience of all things, natural and spiritual and a meaningful unity.  Buddhism answers this description.  If there is any religion that would cope with modern scientific needs, it would be Buddhism.” - Albert Einstein
