Recommended Hotels 
Town Lodge   BangkokSwiss-owned, rooms from 1,200 baht on Sukhumvit soi 18 and walking distance to Soi Cowboy, the skytrain and the underground.
Penthouse Hotel   PattayaThis long-running English-owned hotel in Soi Pattayaland 2 is a real Pattaya institution, somewhere everyone should stay at least once.
Pattaya Bay Resort   PattayaA very popular Western-owned and managed hotel in Pattaya with comfortable, well-appointed rooms at very reasonable prices.
Summer Breeze Hotel   PhuketA great mid-range American-owned and managed hotel just 2 minutes walk from the action and 5 minutes walk from Phuket's most popular beach, Patong.
  
  
Eating & Drinking 
Sunrise TacosOne of my favourite restaurants in all of Bangkok, fantastic Mexican food at very reasonable prices!
Duke's ExpressA modest looking restaurant in the Emporium shopping centre with what is arguably the best American-style food in Bangkok and for me, absolutely the best burger in Thailand!
Bradman's BistroThis Aussie-owned and managed bar has really decent Western (and Thai) food at very reasonable prices.
Bourbon StreetFor over 20 years, Doug's bar and grill with southern-style cooking has been a magnet for Westerners, particularly Americans, in Bangkok.
  
  
Dating & Marriage 
Find Love AsiaThe best free dating site for Western guys keen on meeting women from not just Thailand, but all over Asia.
ThaiLoveLinksFar and away the best Thailand-centric dating site.  You have to pay for access but it is well worth it - whether you're looking for a lifelong companion, or just merely fun.
