Men in mind - Hiranyikara pampers body and soul
I had a tough time recently. Traveling gay Singapore, gay Cambodia and gay Thailand for six weeks with my friend David from Berlin took its toll. He was annoying. With relief, I finally waved him good-bye as the taxi drove off to Singapore`s Changi airport from where David flew back to his hometown Berlin. I needed a break. Phuket, I decided, is the perfect place to relax. Hence, I booked myself into the ever so welcoming Club One Seven B & B in Patong Beach. "I need to recharge my batteries", I tell Daniel. The manager of Patong`s gay boutique hotel Club One Seven smiles and says: "Why don`t you treat yourself with an indulgent afternoon at the new Spa for men Hiranyikara?" Sounded perfect to me. Daniel made a booking, arranged for a transport, since the Hiranyikara is in Kathu, 20 minutes by car from Patong. Read more

I love Gay Phuket / I hate Gay Phuket
Arriving at Phuket airport the view is spectacular. As the plane gets closer and closer to the water you wonder whether or not you will make it this time as usual, or... and then you are quite sure, this time the plane is really going to fall into the Andaman sea. But then a secure touch down as always, the plane brakes and slowly follows the path to the terminal. Gay Phuket, here I am once more, I just love you! This is my twelfth - yes, correct, twelfth time in gay paradise. I just love gay Phuket!

Even arriving at Phuket airport is a pain in the ass. First of all the planes land far to close to the water, it looks very dangerous and - believe me - if in Thailand something looks dangerous, it normally is. My last trip in gay Phuket was definitely my last. Okay, the landscape of the so called Pearl of the Andaman is quite nice. But if you want to go to one of the unspoiled beaches, there is no gay night life whatsoever. So you always end up in sleazy gay Patong beach instead. I just hate gay Phuket! Read more

Celebrating Phukets Revival

Join Club One Seven Phuket!
What was so special about Patongs Club One Seven Bed & Breakfast (and lunch and dinner), which the Tsunami destroyed? The location right on the beach?

The Joys of Disaster Tourism
Wednesday, February 2nd: At the Bangkok airport there were lots of farang getting on three discount Thai Air Asia flights to Phuket. Maybe tourism was back on track.

TSUNAMI account from PATONG
Going through my head is "What the fuck am I doing rivited to the spot at the entrance of my hotel, mesmerised by the sight of a bloody great wall of water coming straight at me and which will possibly wipe us, and my hotel, out of existence ?" Through a numbness that had suddenly gripped me... Read more

Another Holiday in Paradise: From Club One Seven to Baan Mai
When I arrived at Club One Seven in Patong, their truly Royal Suite was ready for me. Soon, Yai showed up, the French-looking cabaret dancer from Uncle Charlies who broke my heart in March (see Alone in Patong), sweeter and prettier than I remembered. Before dinner, Yai and I re... Read more

Alone In Patong (But Not For Long)
Patong Beach should be called Farang beach because thats what it is: A public pool for tourists spread over four kilometers of clean beach. There is a gay beach, Ive been told, but gays being so into-your-face all over the place, I didnt notice it. Maybe they should mark it with pink umbrellas. ... Read more

Thanks to Club One Seven
Undeniably I am (and always will be) a Bavarian (editors note: somewhat strange tribesmen in the South of Germany, in many ways comparable with the Red Necks in the US). Which translates into the following: I just love beer. And I am very conservative. All Bavaraians keep traditions up all the ti... Read more

Aquarius: No need to fish for compliments
If you like going to Phuket, there is a new attraction in place: It is called Aquarius and it is basically a sauna with an indoor pool-on the other hand it is more, much more like a one-stop center for all your needs during your stay in the South.... Read more
