When visiting Thailand, it doesn’t take long to realise the Thai’s are tricksters. Well practiced at pretty much any art they have chosen to master. Some mastering the art of swapping their particular skill, or trick in return for a traveller’s money. On our visit to Phuket, we checked out Bangla Road (where the party’s at!)

Bangla Road is a cross between a seedy red light district and a colourful wonderland of bars, clubs, and street performers.

Connect 4

Connect 4. Nearly every bar you get a drink at you will be offered by a good looking lady if you’d like to play Connect 4 – Man, ill tell you what I thought was good at this game – But these ladies have it sorted hands down. They win every time. The deal is play for a drink so 200 Baht later, dare you play again?

Just a tip: don’t start chatting about the working conditions these ladies are under or you WILL (as we did) get escorted out of there very soon after.

Pretty ladies

A common one – Which we saw multiple times was a poor gullable drunk bloke trying to impress the pretty ladies. ALL the pretty ladies, who every evening, head out for free.

Start up a chat with a lonely bloke and before long he’s buying a round for a whole pack of them. Not sure what else he will be buying.

Ring the Bell

For the happy drunks (which is most of them), there is of course the bell. Each bar has its own bell – Which if you ring it (it makes a good ding) you have offered to buy a round of shots for the entire bar.

This of course works in your favour if you end up at an Aussie bar (yes they have them over here) the bell doesn’t stop ringing!

Virtual reality

Have the time of your life playing on a virtual reality roller coaster, wearing virtual reality glasses, while a Thai guy lifts you up and down off the ground and spins you around, round and round. If you don’t throw up afterwards you get all your money back.

Fish Eat the Bacteria off your Feet

This ones fair fair we didn’t find this to be a rip off, as Shaun’s feet don’t smell or I’m sure taste the best – But man! Those fish have some teeth on them.
