Surin Nightlife

Recommended Posts

[

There are a number of 'sing-a-song' bars on the outskirts of Surin. A few on the Buriram road as you enter Surin boundary. However, our favourite is close to the elephant stadium/airport. Some pictures here:

Thanks, Jayenram, that's just the kind of information that I find interesting. Martin's remarks are wide of the mark in many cases: the cafes and garden restaurants with singers are the highlight of 'night life' for me.

Not wide of the mark, but dead on. That is exactly what I'm getting across. There are simply dozens of normal drinking and chatting up dens in Surin, where it is possible to meet the girl of your dreams, without resorting to laying your wallet on the table and choosing the first girl to pick it up.

Actually you may be surprised to know the number of gentleman that take me to one side and ask where they can buy a girl for the night. One dead-beat pissed up school teacher even became abusive when my wife told him she didn't know. Of course there are such places. Lots of them in fact. But up here it is more discreet.

....the ones that do drink, come here, get sh1t-faced ,then go home.

Apart from the stereotype about fat, ugly bastards, this is the bit that is wide of the mark. Some of us like to explore beyond our local farang bar: it doesn't mean that we aren't happily married or that we are handing out wads of cash in exchange for favours. And I don't feel any shame in admitting that I like exploring bars in unfamilar cities. Of course, if everybody fitted the pattern above it would be great for business in farang-oriented establishments The other thing that is questionable in your post is the assumption that the interesting point of contrast is between Surin and the tourist resorts: for some of us it is between Surin and other Isaan cities (where many of the things you mention are pretty much a constant). Jayenram didn't seem to have too much difficulty in picking up what my post was about, whereas others seem to regard this as a taboo subject.

Aaaaaaaaahhhhhhh.............................now I understand. You must be American, not to understand the humerous underlay to those two statements.

The first one is a continuation of the banter that has been going on in other posts, and on the chat between those who I referred to.

And if you read the second one again, you will see it is purely a look into the mind of a normal Thai girl. Again with a humerous aspect.

I have been to Surin a number of times, but apart from the Farang Connection....which is a bit, err, tame, where can I go for some good ol' night life?

The 'Connection' has great food, but I fancy eating something for desert.

AussieColin,

There are a few places to have some adult fun in Surin. Some guys come all the way from Ubon to do so. :D Try the Coyote Agogo in Soi Kola (left side just before the Celebrate restaurant). Small place, but the natives are friendly and there are some pretty lasses in there. Not Soi Cowboy, but it can be fun if you know that the ladies need you to approach them, not the other way around. Also, the Memorial Hotel has a fishbowl massage with all included for 800 baht an hour (walk down the driveway to the left and down to the back parking lot, the entrance is back there). As for Sing-a-Song places with take out possibilities, try the Caesar Club right in front of the Thong Tarin Hotel (the building behind the stage of the beer garden in the front parking lot of the hotel). There's also the Hard Rock Agogo down the far left end of Soi Kola as well, the agogo is upstairs and has some nice talent in there which again, you need to approach them, as they will not come to you and sit with you unless asked, usually. Plenty of karaoke shops as well along soi Kola as well with friendly singers who will attempt to draw you inside. As said, Speed 3 is a good place to meet people and have some fun, but hitting on ladies there could be a problem, as most are with friends or their hubbie or boyfriend. My favorite hangout in Surin is the Tawan Daeng Club to the right of the Thong Tarin Hotel (there is a gate from the parking lot to the right of the hotel where you can walk into the back lot of the Tawan Dang then around front to the entrance. If the gate is locked just ask one of the parking lot guards to open it for you-a small tip is appreciated for doing this, but not absolutely necessary). Usually starts rocking around 11, open until 2, and the single/groups of women are very friendly and have possibilities and seem to all want a farang boyfriend, at least for the night. Was hit upon by 2 lovely young ladies the other night while there with a friend, plus I love the Isaan Thai rock music. Good band, cheap drinks, and very friendly people.

There are other places, but these are all right in one area you can walk to around the Thong Tarin Hotel, just up the street from the Farang Connection (which has great food and drinks to start off an evening and the infamous owner Martin is always good for a laugh and a chat :o ), also an easy walk to these places from the new Surin Majestic Hotel. If you want a room to take a lass from the agogos or where ever without needing to use your hotel, behind the Thong Tarin you can walk into a small soi (which you can see from the back of the hotel's swimming pool) that has a 'No Tell Motel' short time room for 200 baht. The passageway into the soi from behind the hotel is to the far left of the steps that lead up to the Golden Rose (might be another name now) Massage Parlor that sits at the back of the Thong Tarin. You'll see it, looks like a driveway, but is the entrance to a small soi where the motel occupies most of the soi. Someone said the Thong Tarin massage place is expensive. That's not what I was told, I think 1200 baht for a 2 hour session with one of the lovelies. They do have a 'superstar' tier, so that might be more.

Not that I frequent some of these places, but friends do and have told me what they get up to and how much it all costs. Just for your info.

Pertinent, succinct and well-written. Thank you. :D

:D Oh yeah, about as discrete as a hammer to your head once you step onto Soi Kola, especially on a Friday or Saturday evening! :o:D

Tasasc,

Thanks. Just passing on the info to a member. The muffin shop is further down the street. I recommend the banana muffins in the morning, and bring along the zircon encrusted tweezers to make sure to get all the crumbs you drop. Tasty muffins abound. :D Not many penguins in bondage though, too hot here.

Next time you're in, I want names, addresses & maps to dish out to my customers. Maybe there is a market in Surin after all.
