Does anyone know anything about the Klong Toey area of BKK? Not the place for a midnight stroll with 1000s of baht hanging out your pocket i hear. True?
I'd also like to ask if anyone has had any experience with a volunteer centre near BTS Ploen Chit Station (um, soi 3 off Ruamrudee) but im not sure if i cant name it on the forum.
huge market. use to live near by and have walked/ridden around the area a lot. not a place to safely involve yourself in extracuricular substance use or gambling. other than that its an interesting area.
There was a thread about that volunteer centre I think. It was a while back though. There was no bad reports and a couple of positive I think! Sorry to be vague, if you name the centre I'll know if we are on about the same place - I can't actually remember!
Excuse me for not taking this seriously .....
Its also a district of BKK when I lived on Soi 4 Sukumvit, I am sure it was Klong Toey. Its also the official name of the port of BKK in BKK. As Lam Chabang the deep water port is in Chon Buri.
Too long in Exile, too long not singing my song.

Too long in Exile, baby you just arent my friend.
Too long in Exile my friend, Baby you can never go home again.
Is this the Human Development Foundation. I have been thinking of volunteering myself but haven't looked into it yet.
Klong Toey district covers a huge area of Sukhumvit/Petchburi Roads - From Nana/Pratunam all the way to Ekkamai I believe and to the river on the other side.
The volounteer place is called the Goodwill Foundation, just wasn't sure if the moderators allow naming schools or what.
Happy Songkran :chug:
Klong Toey is a dump.
Klong Toey is a massive area. But when people refer to KT They usually mean the slum part. It used to be awash with drugs, not so much these days.
Yeah it's nowhere near as good as back in the day
40 baht for red ... Cheaper than eating that!

ลาน้องก่อน พี่จนถึงต้องจำจาก, ถึงแม้พี่จะหลงรัก ฐานะพาพราก ต้องจากจอมใจ
ถ้าหากมั่งมี แล้วพี่จะคืนมาใหม่, ไม่ว่าจะอยู่แห่งไหน จะนานเท่าไร ยังไม่ลืมบาง...
