Steve Posted July 17, 2022 Report Share Posted July 17, 2022 Arrived with my now ex kenyan gf...lol. No, it wasn't because we went to Pattaya, we were having issues prior. She likes girls too, so Pattaya was fun for her too. Anyway, getting her in the country took a lot of work because what was needed specifically wasn't 100 percent clear. She went to the Thai embassy in Nairobi. They thought she was traveling alone and the Kenyan clerk told her it would be denied. My guess is prostitution if a single woman from Africa is coming to Thailand. Anyway, I told her to show that we were traveling together. Her ticket and accomodations had me with her. She was double vaxed as well. We filled out the Thai Pass thing. This included the vaccination report, insurance, housing, flight info. I am currently in Dubai and we left from Dubai. We took Qatar Airways and was told at check in that according to their list, she (and possibly myself) may be required to show 40,000 baht cash to ensure we can fend for ourselves for the 10 days there. Our flight and rooms were already paid for. if you can do that, surely you can feed yourself, no? Well, I went to a currency exchange place after the security screening and got 40,000 baht each....IN CASH. Didn't feel good carrying around that kind of cash. I didn't want to take any chances. I know...I know...its bullshit but why chance showing up at Bangkok and told you didn't fulfil the requirements for entry? She got the visa and this was not a requirement. Her Kenyan bank account had enough money in it (she's a school teacher), I think they wanted to know if she had at least the equivalent of $700 in her account. Anyway, we arrive at BKK and the clerk asks her if she has a yellow fever certificate. Never heard of it. She saw it on some list, probably dated. I did some fast talking and said she lives in Dubai and it was there and not required. The clerk spoke to someone else, said "Dubai", the passport had Dubai stamps so we got in but it was touch and go. My guess is the Thai embassy, the immigration don't all have the same info. They never asked for the proof of 40,000 baht. The point is we (or rather her) was hair close not to be let in over some requirement that is no longer needed. Anyway, the last time I was in Pattaya was Spring, 2018. The city is just getting back to normal. Walking street had a lot of construction and for all intent and purposes, dead. I think after the construction is done and by Xmas it will be close to pre covid19 levels. The bars were mostly empty as well up and down the sois between Beach road and 2nd street. The prices varied for women. My gf, as mentioned, likes women and likes 3somes or watching me bang women (obviously a primary reason for dating her). The quality varied. Overall, tough to find stunners but as I said arriving in June it was the first summer of removing most of the covid19 restrictions. Sometimes people wore masks, somemtimes not and didn't see many places insist on it. The one thing that has changed is there aren't the number of Chinese tourist busses I saw in 2018 on my last visit. I did see a whole lot more Indian families. Husband, wife and kids. That was very surprising. I love Indian food so there were a lot of Indian restaurants to choose from. The middle class there must be growing. Didn't hear too many American accents as well...will take some time for us to get back there. Post script. My Kenyan gf (ex now) is a slim dark skin beauty. Pretty girl. The girls either loved her or hated her. No inbetween....haha. They were either clamoring to touch her, her hair and especially after I said she liked girls (she was a bit shy at first, her first time in Asia), a few were enamored and were squeezing her tits, rubbing on her cooch outside the shorts....haha...she was in heaven. Others had that stink face... We had 3somes with girls who were intrigued and excited about being with her. The weather was decent. A little raining here and there but okay. We did the tourist stuff like elephant rides, Tiger park, and Buddhist temples. It was fun despite our personal issues that we couldj't quite work out between us.
