Thailand Travels?
« on: February 22, 2011, 12:20:32 PM »
It looks like I'll be in Thailand next month and I thought this would be a good place to get advice from others who may have been there.  I'll be with my mom, my sister and my girlfriend, so cooperation and some degree of patience will be required on my behalf...

Obviously watching some fights will be mandatory, and I may even be able to do some adventuring and find the place where Salty trained. 

Yoga and meditation have the biggest part of my life this past year, so visiting some of the temples would be great. I'm looking into some yoga retreats as well, and daydreaming about finding a teacher training program to stay with, or revisit in the future.

I've read some reports on Islamic attacks in the south recently, and it looks like red-shirt demonstrations in Bangkok present potential inconveniences as well.  Safety is a concern to me, as I will be traveling with the three most important women in my life.

Any input would be awesome.  Hope all is well with everybody.

Very cool Dan!

If I'm not mistaken Sheep Dog has been over there. Not sure how often he checks the boards though but you can possibly e-mail him through his profile. Have fun and stay safe!

BJung a.k.a. Porn Star Dog plays here on occasion and lives there.  Hopefully he will see this and comment.  I would give plenty of weight to his suggestions.

Hi dan,

  I love internet magic - I'm in Thailand! Feel free to email me with any questions at:

in short though, it's pretty safe/quiet here now (but not in the south), and most protests take place in certain areas of the city (and probably won't really pick up until April) and are easily avoided. the tourism infrastructure here is top notch, and seeing fights, going to meditation, practicing yoga are all easily accessible. it's pretty safe for tourists (i think the biggest dangers for tourists now is themselves - drinking and riding motorcycles is pretty common on the islands it seems)
