Posted:I'm heading over to Thailand for six months. My main stated purpose for travel is to find a good place to settle down and practice. Anybody have any good suggestions? Best beaches to hang out and spin fire?

Posted:In Bangkok: Near Khao Sahn Road there's a park I forget the name of by the river that the local jugglers/spinners meet at. Do a search for details

On most of the islands there's a bunch of spinners hanging out and spinning on a beach by a bar. However I only spun a dusk as it was way to hot otherwise. If you go to Ko Chang there's Lonely Beach where Sunya runs the newly rebuilt Nature Bar. He and a few friends spin.

Posted:I'm with Dom, head over to Ko Chang and see Sunya on Lonely Beach. I spent two beautiful weeks spinning there with my last year. You'll be very welcome

I'm a woman. We don't say what we want, but we reserve the right to be pissed off if we don't get it. That's what makes us so fascinating and not just a LITTLE bit scary.

Posted:Cool. OK. Lonely beach.

I'm definitely looking for things on the mellow side of things. It would be great to say high to the Bangkok group, but my plan is to get out of Bangkok asap. I've had enough of cities for a while.

I'm looking for a place that has enough of a scene that there will be music playing at times, but nothing over the top and developed. Hat Tien on Koh Phagnan sounds good. But the weather will be a bit wet there for the next two months.

And yes, Chiang Mai. I was thinking of heading up there to do a Tai Chi intensive.

Thanks for the input so far!
