    Were Thai airways in attendance flogging discounted tickets?
    They had a rep there flogging raffle tickets at 2 a pop, how the Thai women went silent when the winning ticket was being pulled

    leering local chavs always turn up and can be overheard muttering and sniggering about massage parlours, happy endings and blow jobs whilst orange garbed monks of dubious authenticity in socks and sandals wander about shaking the bucket for donations.

    as the poster above said, these events are best avoided.
    Aye... I've been to one or two, thinking something interesting might happen, but partly to be socialble towards the rib's mates... they are boring and poorly-organised "events" that seemed just for a load of restaurants to shift large vats of takeway. It wouldn't take much for them to organise some kind of entertainment for the kids that get brought along, so that there would be some point in going for the adults - i.e.: a bit of a break and chinwag, but they are just dreary overpriced cringey events.

    This was actually one the better Thai events I've attended.
    Was relatively well organised with reasonable entertainment.
    A fun fair for the kids.
    The ladyboys were horrendous .
    The highlight of the entertainment was for farangs eating repulsive items on stage much to everyones amusment.

    You think they would organise a "Punch and Judy" puppet show for the children.

    I went to the BAth one, and I can assure you that most of the loot from these exorbitantly expensive pile of shite "festivals" goes into the Gucci handbag fund of the tart who runs it. We now a couple of the people who run stalls on this and they say it would be cheaper to pitch up outside Buck House than to pay what this bird wants. So they have to up their prices. Like that icecream in the picture! 5 quid, and all they do is get one "they made earlier" from their luton van.... which means they chop up some lidl icecream. Took the wife or course, because I thought she would enjoy it, and after 30 minutes she was bored shitless not least of the have it show it thai prossies running about everything in their gold and stupid outfits.

    Many festivals like this are now a face gaining exercise

    Even the farangs take part, in the silent 'my gf has more gold than your ex whore gf' contest

    This mob run them all over the country - it is the same lot and a complete racket. I had an idea of lying on the grass, supping Singha, watching the show. Quickly realised it was a cash collection exercise, and there was virtually no where to sit and watch the show. All the stalls were double price, and not great (western thai Style!)

    Then the pattaya prossies waltzing around as if they had not had 1000 litres of spunk deposited up them prior to conning their brow beaten husbands into taking the ultimate "long time".

    Regular card playing and karaoke food nights at eachothers houses is quite popular among the womenfolk

    The husbands are usually in the background having a winge about something

    What is it with Asians and their gambling addictions?

    Work hard and throw their money and life away, they just don't get it

    No wonder it's banned in Thailand!

    They should legalise it and make it the national sport.
