Scared and alone in BKK

Recommended Posts

Immerse yourself in Bangkok. It can be intimidating, but you will be fine. Enjoy life. Everyone and everything in Thailand is fake, but if you are prepared for this, you'll be fine.

Go home, you will be much safer there.

Thailand can be very tough for those prone to anxiety, but if you can get through the initial stage you may well find it a good place to be. Just go with the flow, don't fight against it. Best of luck.

Hi there.

 

I am not really sure where to put this so I'm sorry if this is the wrong area to post this.

 

Seem to have been several 1st posts starting with these exact same words recently ?

 

Were you also robbed in Khao Sahn road ?

When i was in a condo there i used to always buy a big bottle of pepsi
For all the motorbike taxi guys
They watched my back

Sheryl can confirm this but I think that medical marijuana has been approved for use in Thailand or soon will be.

One thing that I would like to recommend is that you chat briefly with the concierge or bellboys at your hotel.  They will quickly pick up on your desire for reassuring conversation and greet you with a smile and maybe a “Wai” everyday.  Give small tips such as 20 Baht for every service.  Pick out a restaurant or coffee shop (I like those downstairs in Central Chidlom,) smile, chat with the staff and leave a small tip.  These people will pick up on your need for reassuring friendliness and will start to greet you warmly every day.  I lived in Japan and the social vibe here is quite different.  Most of the people enjoy a little bit of small talk and friendliness.  BTW, when you buy something that you must bargain for, the sellers will try to overcharge everyone, sometimes even Thai people.  You’ve got learn to bargain.

I find that the greetings and smiles I receive here improve my mood.  I hope that they will help you.

Are you a man or a woman ? Gay or straight? It makes a difference.  Because there are various groups that would be more beneficial you can turn to for support with regards to you past and present problems.

Bangkok is no place for someone lacking self-confidence...go home and get yourself back on solid ground...this place tends to select only the fittest for survival...

"Bangkok, Oriental setting
And the city don't know that the city is getting
The creme de la creme of the chess world 
In a show with everything but Yul Brynner

 
Time flies doesn't seem a minute
Since the Tirolean spa had the chess boys in it
All change don't you know that when you
Play at this level there's no ordinary venue
It's Iceland or the Philippines or Hastings or
Or this place!
 
One night in Bangkok and the world's your oyster
The bars are temples but the pearls ain't free
You'll find a god in every golden cloister
And if you're lucky then the god's a she
I can feel an angel sliding up to me"
Murray Head - "One Night In Bangkok"
