Re: Hilton hotel

The cost of a guest depends on he hotel, sometimes it is just the cost of breakfast but it can be as much as 50% of the room price. Of course you can sometimes sneak a girl in if that's the way you want to work. There are plenty of tricks such as arriving in a Tuk-Tuk with the girl sat next to the d...

Re: Hilton hotel

When you book hotels in Thailand they are split into 3 groups. In most hotels you book a room for maximum 2 people. If you turn up with a girl some will ask for her passport but most are not interested who the second person is. Most top hotels (including the Hilton & Sofitel) will ask to see the pas...

Re: Problems with Thai girlfriends

We are guests. We are living in Thailand for our own pleasure. None of us have been asked to come here.
