Bangkok in Film: A Partspective

January 19, 2020 By bangkok7

As we anxiously await the release of the most recent “Fast & Furious” flick, partially filmed on location in the south of Thailand, let’s reminisce about those films of yore that tried their best to depict the cultural enigma that is Bangkok on the big screen. For this article, I’m only covering films made by

January 12, 2020 By bangkok7

Hey there web-wanderer. I’m Bangkok Seven. Welcome to my page. Today I offer an in-depth look at Patpong’s newest gogo bar—The xXx Lounge, formerly The Steakhouse Co. and before that, Club Electric Blue. Be forewarned, however. This will not be an impartial review. I absolutely love the joint and go there almost daily. Just FYI.

January 5, 2020 By bangkok7

Happy Sunday, net wanderer. My name is Seven, and this is my blog. Today’s offering was supposed to be a perspective on films set in Bangkok, but it’s been a busy week and I’m not quite finished with it. So in a pinch, I’ve got a random set of photos from my laptop’s hard drive,

Seven Suggests: Thailand Alternatives

December 29, 2019 By bangkok7

Happy holidays, folks. I’m Bangkok Seven and this is my blog. Earlier this month I posted a list of reasons why a female farang might not enjoy Thailand. In truth, I’m harbor some bias regarding this topic due to my intense dislike for white chicks, especially Americans. But since I’m not completely heartless, I feel

Seven in Exile: Krabi

December 22, 2019 By bangkok7

If you’ve read my previous blogs, you may remember references to my first years in Thailand working for a fake NGO in Krabi. Most of those callbacks paint a negative picture, because the people I worked for were hucksters. But it wasn’t all bad. Here’s a look back at what was a simple, if not

Some Bangkok Gogo Girls Part 8: In Memoriam

December 15, 2019 By bangkok7

Hello there, websurfer. I’m Bangkok Seven, and this is my blog. This week, I submit another one of my series devoted to the lovelier examples of our species—the Bangkok gogo dancer. This one’s a little more somber, though, as it highlights a few that are either temporarily or permanently gone. Bangkok can be a dangerous

December 8, 2019 By bangkok7

Lots of foreign women come to Thailand and love it. In fact, I’d venture to guess that around half the women who come here from the West would say they really enjoyed themselves. But the other half—well—they hate Thailand. So for any white chick who might be reading this and who might also be considering

Some Thai Gogo Dancers Part 7: Gone Girls

December 1, 2019 By bangkok7

In the movie “Dazed and Confused,” Wooderson says “That’s what I love about these high school girls, man. I get older, they stay the same age.” In the red-light district, it’s the opposite. The gogo dancers get older, and I stay the same. The girls I first knew upon arriving in the RLD have, over

How’s it hangin’ dudes, Bangkok Seven here. I’ve just returned from yet another short holiday in Pattaya, since ole Ptown is fun again after a couple of dismal years. Some sois are feeling the love more than others at the moment, but overall things are looking up. All of my recent visits have hovered around

The Patpong Museum: Red-Light Time Machine

November 17, 2019 By bangkok7

What’s up internet? Bangkok Seven here. Today’s offering is an informal review of the recently-opened Patpong Museum on Patpong Soi 2 beneath Black Pagoda. And full disclosure: it’s going to be biased, because some of my artwork is hanging in there. But don’t let that sour you to this review, or to the museum itself,
