A very ill thought out post, most of the people categories you list are more likely to ignore issues consistently raised surrounding Thailand, they would according to your descriptions, not be in the Kingdom long enough to endure the adverse effects.

Long term residents while happily ensconced in their 'land of dreams' do however exercise their right to highlight their 'experience'  and 'knowledge' regarding inadequacies and short comings in their adopted country.

Perhaps you should think of posters along the lines of a football supporter, who will support the team through thick and thin, but.....if the goal keeper is crap and this affects the performance of the team the supporter may well exercise the right to mention this.

 

And actually your post is so full of overused clichés, I begin to wonder if it is a little 'Tongue in cheek'! given your phrase below

 

"the wannabe who has never been to Thailand and repeats ad nauseum the urban myths they read on the forum"

I can assure it it was not tongue in cheek but the view I have come to after reading the many, many posts from people who obviously do not like Thailand or the Thai people. I am not one of them. I'm happily married to  lovely Thai lady.

 

Feel free to post your response to the original question.

Agreed.

 

Used to be spectacular in the 90's and early 2000's. If you arrived after 2007/8 you missed the boat.

Yep, first came in 98 and came for 4 months a year up to 2002 when I worked in Taiwan I based my self in Naklua. Used to drink in a boozer in soi Wongarmart called The Fly Inn, had loads of ex-pats, expats families on holiday and ended up a good laugh. I was based there until 2006 and worked in China <deleted> connections in those days so didn't come back so frequently. I went back to Naklua in 2010 and it had completely changed, most of the blokes I knew had left or lost on their businesses and the place looked really run down. it reminded me of a <deleted> hole in east London called Forest Gate only difference was more sunshine in Naklua

Yea right, 6 hours in immigration lines, then 3 hours in traffic jams finally arrive at hotel quick shower and that's Saturday done and dusted.  Quick dinner and bed then arise, shower, back into traffic jams to airport and  join immigration lines for departure.  Doesn't sound like much of a weekend break and I'II give Bangkok a wide miss.  More relaxing peaceful locations to unwind for a weekend.

And what does any of this nonsense have to do with Bangkok?

The thread is about people who come to Thailand for the weekend. Where I come from in East London the term "Nonce" can be used in jest taking the piss out of mate with a younger bird could be like a 40 year with a 25 year old.It's just banter

No, the thread is about going to Bangkok for the weekend.

On the other side of the coin, Bangkokians try to get the hell OUT of Bangkok at the weekend.
