Request to Blog

We are presently accepting applications from people to join the team of bloggers at thai-blogs.com. We are not like other blogging sites as we concentrate more on writing articles that both promote and also explain more clearly to people around the world about the Kingdom of Thailand. The blogs are generally positive and we pride ourselves in being family friendly. We do not discuss the bar scene in Thailand.

Click here if you would like to apply to be a blogger. You do not need to register if you just want to post comments.

If you wish to do a general blog about your daily life then thai-blogs is not for you. We believe in quality rather than quantity. That is not saying that a daily diary is not interesting. It is just that we are more article orientated. However, we will soon be launching a new blogging service on a different website where you can sign up for your own free blog like at blogger.com. More about this soon.

Old Patong: Basses Bar

Basse set up a great little bar on the southern corner of Valentine Bungalows, right on the beach road!

The bar was unique, it was round! The first round bar/cafe in Old Patong. The big round Disco came later down the beach road in front of Lada Bar.

Basse, a friendly Swede lived inside the bar with his girlfriend when shop closed each night.

Many Scandinavians would frequent Basses Bar, it was always an easy going place, never a care in the world, but in Old Patong, there were few cares anyway.

Many an afternoon we’d join Basses and his mates playing Monopoly or solving the problems of the rest of the world, since all expats are know-it-alls, we did well together.

Big Ola la, Gotland and the Scandinavians were always in a good mode, enjoying each minute and only worrying when the Singha was all gone…

Submitted a few pix of a time when comedy was there for the asking and good times were had by all.

In Old Patong, where every day was a holiday.
