Where I stayed
What I did
What a night or what i can remember of it, we was only meant to be going out for something to eat and a few drinks.
We decided to walk as it was only about 10 minutes away, that's if you know where you are going. An hour later after walking straight past it and another 1/2 mile down the road we finally got there (with the help of a map from a 7-11).
The pictures I've seen and reviews-blogs I've read don't really give it justice, its crazily awesome. With blokes asking if you want a taxi and when you say no then do you want ping-pong... to live music coming out of nearly every single bar there is something to look at every single step down this legendary road.
We ended up in a rooftop bar, a good Thai bloke on an acoustic with a Newton Faulkneresk twang. We got chatting to some German guys, seemed like good fellas, getting tips for our trip down south to the islands. Michael and Iziot (i think it was Elliot but Elle says different...). It was Iziot's last night so Michael was treating him to a ping-pong show, they asked if we were up for it and Elle jumped at the chance!! After talking to these men dotted down koh san we got a good enough price and jumped into our first tuktuk. A lot more bling on these than the ones in Egypt but not as comfortable!
We ended up round the back of some building that looks like it held unlicensed boxing, think Frank Butcher and 'Cousin Avi', "tickets please" from Snatch.
Well, razor blades, tinsel, tied up handkerchiefs, ping-pongs and a full blown sex show, I think Elle had second thoughts whilst watching it. We had to do it though, so why not on the first night!
Back to koh san road, and a bucket of samsong later, we ended up with another English couple and just one German. This is where it gets fuzzy, Elle made friends with a club owners girlfriend and i don't know how we got home... What does come back to me is Elle ending up slumped on the floor outside the hotel room and me struggling to open the door (swiping the key card in the wrong area) whilst busting for a wee. I'll let you finish the story off however you like...
After sobering up and getting friend requests the names of the German guys were Elias and Marco, haha!.. how drunk!!??!!
