    Holy crap. Train full time 6 days a week for 139 US a month plus living expenses. Thailand is crazy cheap, and it looks like they have a solid lineup of instructors so far. I could stay there 3 months for what I paid for 11 days in Brazil.

    I was in a very touristy area when I went so there were tooons of prostitutes everywhere. Some were very blunt and would try and feel you up a little while you were drinking, and some would play it cool. I didn't hook up with any of the girls there for a bunch of reasons.

    Huge AIDS epidemic
    Very often you don't know if its actually a guy or girl
    Moral reasons. I won't pay for sex and I don't think I could actually throw it in a girl knowing that shes probably been used as a sex slave since she was 12 and is now dead inside

    I know I've only mentioned hookers, but to be honest I don't think I saw a single local girl that wasn't a prostitute other than staff at the resort, employees at restaurants, etc.

    how probable is it for a white guy to go there and train, find a place to live, and make it back alive without getting in serious trouble health wise, or other. is it as ghetto as everyone says?

    it is not ghetto at all dude.
    as long as you're in bangkok... it's a metropolitan city.

    obviously the training camps are gonna be run down most of the time since it was made for locals in mind, then they've just expanded to host the foreign white boyzzz

    When i was in Thailand (Phuket)....you could eat a huge meal (salad, steak/lobster/sides, have a few drinks) for @ $6-7 USD (@ 300-350 Baht)...good times.

    when i was there, I considered that too much to spend on a meal, but more then willing to spend that and more at Banana.
