About Grace Hotel, I do agree with another person about the quality/quantity at Grace hotel. It used to be lined with women not only in the coffee shop but outside on the walkway as well. My trip this time there were very few women in the coffee shop and they were on the low-quality side. Outside much less and mostly non-Thai women. Not so long ago you could find a gem in amongst the crowd. It has changed quite a bit. Never was a Patpong scouter so I don’t know much about it. However, the Nana disco seems to be closed.
Second: I think I made a mistake, two Saturday’s ago I was walking down Sukhumvit near Thermae Café, just walking taking in the sights when near the Sheraton hotel I bumped into a freelancer. Very Beautiful, very sexy, nice smile nice body simply a 9. 9/10. So I decided to speak with her, now I am not Caucasian, and for those who lived in Bangkok will understand. But I decided to try and speak with her. And to my surprise, she responded and can speak English well. She said that she works in the café, not sure as a worker or a special worker and that she was going home, it was about 2:30 pm. Anyway, I asked and got 2.5K Baht for a short time. Now, this is way above going rate, so I said too much. Then she said 2 K but I still declined. After going to my hotel I wondered (and still do) if that was the right decision. It was 2. 5 times the going rate but with my luck, I don’t often bump into 9’s in my life. But I also considered that in Jakarta when you are quoted 2. 5 times the price you decline and move on.
I still think about that encounter to this day, perhaps it would have been worth it. Hopefully, now it will only be a memory.a
