update 28jan2017: I'm not the only one who finds the food overpriced: http://bangkok.coconuts.co/2017/01/27/overpricing-ordeal-150-baht-too-much-krapow-phuket
For the rest of this short stay, I would live on food from 7/11 (same price as elsewhere in Thailand). Afternoon walk through Paradise Complex, massage places open but no cute boys. One place 1 hour oil massage 300 Baht, elsewhere I get the same offer in spoken form, but printed price is 400 Baht.
Then to Patong Beach. Umbrellas are coming back, but still no beach chairs allowed, this is partially circumvented by making piles of sand to be used as beach chairs:
At night go to Paradise Complex. A first walk-around around 21:00 shows low numbers of boys and customers, and I wonder if I should rather go to bed, but stay on for research.
I recognize one boy from Bangkok (had foot massage with him in preparation for more, but then he disappeared). Heavily tattooed and several mooks (from pictures and porn, I haven’t seen myself). Music, temperature, light ok, but rotation too slow. It took about one hour until I had seen all boys on stage. Ask mamasan for prices: off fee 500, short time 1500, long time 2000. I’m sure there is room for negotiation, I didn’t tell mamasan that I have spent a lot of time in Thailand, but as this is my first visit to Phuket bars I might have appeared to be a newbie.
Walk back along beach and Bangla road (feels like a mixture of Khao San and Walking Street).
