living in the ‘Land of Smiles’

Chiang Mai, Thailand

Bangkok – 1969

“The U.S. R&R Centre in BKK – Windsor Hotel Sukhumvit Soi 20. I believe these girls could be rented for the week for some B400….not bad for ’69.

Actually, it acted as a “way station” for most serving in the SE Asian wars. This wasn’t an exclusive Yank club. I believe that the fighting Aussies made it there home away from home. 

You think back and how this all got started. By 1969, the BKK “districts” were just getting up steam – than came Pattaya, the navy haunt. Well established bar areas upcountry around the American air bases . . .”
