Well, out on the town for my weekly episode to ensure another mindnumbing experience and this week my friends and I decided to hit Soi Crocodile. Usually we'll hit another bar that we enjoy but a few girls sidetracked us on the way in.We ended up sitting at the bar that is located in the middle of the soi just behind all the table and chairs where you can sit and watch the ladyboys dancing. We were having a few drinks and a pretty good time until we asked for our bill. WOW! We were taken something bad! There was four of us and we'd each only had around 3 or 4 beers each and 1 or two ladydrinks but were charged for an additional 4 shots of tequila and 2 scotch and cokes. NOBODY had any tequila or scotch and cokes, not even the girls we bought drinks for.Apparently this bar is owned by the same thai guy that owns the soi and he's also the owner of D Club just down the end. Needless to say, we won't be back into that bar or venture into his nightclub ever. You can say it must be low season and the thai mentality is really kicking in. Rip of the customers you have now while you have them and make money, who cares as they may not come back anyway. Well, we won't be back and now others are now aware of their antics.It's unfortunate what happened but we'll still be visiting our friends bar in Soi Crocodile from time to time; just not back there. Phuket Bars tip = Avoid the middle bar and nightclub in soi crocodile unless you like paying for drinks you never get.
