    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.

    ^^There would be a good few well oiled veterans of the Thai scene with stories that could make paint peel off the walls, so get busy
