Going on the 14th of January on a train journey from Bangkok to Butterworth and straight back on what should be a round trip of 48 hours, anyone fancy joining me either send me a PM or reply here !! I know it sounds pretty bazaar but it gives one a chance to see the changing land scape of Thailand and feel like Micheal Palin for a couple of days plus its just a re-entry stamp i need on my passport and that Cambodia run bores me now, just thought it would be different

Yeah, I used to do the bangkok to Butterworth visa run every three months in 1989 to 1991, back then it was the only real option for a visa run without flying anywhere.

 

Me and a mate got our visas synchronized and would make the trip together. We used to look forward to the different beers available in Penang (just Singha, Kloster and sometimes Amarit in Thailand then).

 

As I recall the train would leave Bangkok about three in the afternoon. Pretty soon afterwards we would go the the restaurant carriage and start on the beers. Had some great times with other expats on those trips. Once the carriage stopped serving us we would retire to the sleepers.

 

The border crossing was a bit of a ritual, everybody off the train, a customs search I will never forget one Malaysian police man search my bag while his colleague put his hands around his neck symbolically then pointed to me and then the "death penalty for drug smugglers" sign. Welcome to Malaysia.

 

Looking back we actually used to look forward to those visa runs as a bit of a change. I don't know if I could have handled just turning around and then heading straight back though.

    • For those that don't know, I did Friday meetings before many years ago,  I feel like we are missing a regular meeting for members,  I am aware guys meet at PA affiliated bars. But I want to start meeting people again, I'm inviting the guys following my YouTube also.

      The meetings is a chance to get to meet each other,  I plan to be at every meeting, I also have Dean from Dive bar that has offered to help out with a crawl after.
      The meetings will be  Monday  6 pm - 8 pm each week.  (The improvised bar crawl will commence at 8 p.m.  Dean will make his own plans for that.)

      Due to low numbers of people in town, I will start the meetings in our bars to help our girls and managers, please check back often incase things are changed.  I will be sharing the love around town later, but Soi 6 is first on my list (including bars that are friendly competition)   
      If bar owners want us to have a meeting at their bar,  they need to have a minimum of 10 girls.  I'm not dragging people to empty bars for favours.
      Please help us invite other members, it takes a while to get momentum.
      Monday 6 pm - 8pm  (then bar crawl after)
      21st March - Playpen Soi 6
      28th March - Night wish bar Soi 6
      4th April - Toy Box bar Soi 6
      11th April - Repent Soi 6
      18th April - where angels play Soi 6
      25th April -  (next bar we have open)

      2nd May - (next bar we have open)
      9th May - Cooters bar soi 6
