    One night in Chanthaburi

    The scene is me and my mate have agreed to meet a couple of Uni girls from Chanthaburi and have a night out before our scheduled arrival in Jomtien.

    Meet up with the girls at a hotel just off campus, pretty basic but 400 baht per night.

    We travel the 2-3km's in to town at arround 8pm and find a bar that is occupied by a few Thai lovelys sitting out front the music played is Thai and the girls are singing kareoke in the bar and whilst taking turns.

    After about 30 minutes the music changes to the usual falang stuff obviously to please me and my mate who are good spending customers.

    The next thing I know the bar is blockaded by 2 pickups with about 8 guys in normal clothes wearing some form of ID arround their necks. I ask WTF and am told these are the local police and they have come to check for counterfeit music/CD's and was told to stay quiet.

    After 20 minutes of checking and silence these cvnts didn't just take the pirated CD's they lifted the entire sound system and speakers into the pickups and took off.

    No music meant we were off to one of the two disco's in town, which me and my mate enjoyed it was filled with the local talent, but the name escapes me.

    It was getting late so we decided to return to our hotel with the dames for a good nights sleep.

    I walks out of this night club merry but not pissed to be confronted by these 8 goons demanding 1000 baht WTF, they were huddled arround me screaming in Thai.

    Now Hooter is a tourist and he speaks very little Thai he knows the rude words but nothing else.

    Suffice to say I was bundled into our taxi by the driver and my mate and told to shut the fvck up.

    Would I go back of course I would.

    That's good. I probably would have just paid to prevent any hassle.

    I've spent alot of time in Chan and never had a problem, though it is full of Nigerians so I'm sure problems exist.

    Spent a few days there, it seemed like a fairly grim and ordinary Thai city. The province is quite nice, though, with beaches and mountains and such. And so close to Koh Chang.

    One should avoid Thai karaoke joints IMO, not just in Chantaburi, but everywhere.
