Soi Cowboy Soi Dog

Soi Cowboy Soi Dog - Chris Coles

........there are many German tourists who come to Bangkok to chase the bargirls. Every night, night after night, they never have enough. Until their two weeks are up and they catch their flight. In Germany, they dream about their Bangkok girls, hoping to find a way to come back and never leave. Some say when the German guys are re-incarnated they come back as soi dogs and wander around Soi Cowboy to their heart's content...........

Soi Cowboy Agogo

Soi Cowboy Agogo - Chris Coles

......closing time on Soi Cowboy, the only customer’s a friend, the last song is from the northeast part of Thailand called Isan. It’s a tale of endless hard work on dirt-poor farms, the sons and daughters all lost to Bangkok to learn the ways of the City.............

Q Bar Purple Butterfly Girl

Q Bar Purple Butterfly Girl - Chris Coles

......Q Bar is ultra-chic. Club trance, guys dressed in Armani black, the girls look like fashion models. Along with Bed Supperclub, it’s one of the top Bangkok clubs. But even in Q Bar, the boy-girl action is transactional and fast. No matter how exquisite the girl, how full of beauty, depth and soul, money determines the outcome, a pay as you go system with no obligations outside the time frame agreed.......

Dancers at Tilac Bar Soi Cowboy

Dancers at Tilac Bar Soi Cowboy - Chris Coles

....the girls at Tilac Bar are often mothers of one or two young children left back in dusty farming villages with grandparents. They finish school at the end of sixth grade, have their babies before they turn twenty and come to Bangkok after their husbands die or leave, looking for a way out, trying to be stylish, hoping for the best and sending 2000 Baht a month back home......

.....sometimes they get lucky and end up in California, Germany, England or Australia. Sometimes they don’t and disappear off the face of the earth........
