Speaking of Kaohsiung and Wufu…does anybody know who this “English teacher” loser is?
Kaohsiung Travel Report Dated Added: 2002-05-30 Submitted by: pete
- Why pay for sex…when you can get it for free !!! This is my policy in life and I am usually successful. I am a 27 year old male(goodlooking !!) and I was in Kaohsiung recently. For anybody of you looking to make some easy money, teaching English at “bushibans” is a good alternative.
Don’t worry if you do not speak a word of Chinese, because once the night sets in, Kaohsiung, all aglow in neon, is yours. Remember I mentioned “free sex”. The numerous discotheques in the city are the best watering holes. For example try “Jurassic Park” in the heart of the city. On weekends the cover is NT$ 450(US$ 13) which includes a free drink. I guess Tuesday was ladies night, but the good part is that if you are a white male you stand a good chance of getting hooked up. Now I am not speaking about hookers, but very normal girls like the ones we see every day. Taiwanese girls are very shy when it comes to speaking English, but they want to, so desperately. They fantasize of having a “foreign” boyfriend.
I spotted a petite girl in a group(Taiwanese always dance in groups !!) who kept on glancing at me with an occasional smile. I discovered my chance and just joined in the dancing not very far from her. At some stage the “boys” of the group ( note. Taiwanese men go to the the WC in groups too !!!) had to answer the call of nature and left. I wasted no time and struck up a conversation, asking her her name and what she did. It worked !! We were dancing together for the rest of the evening, and she did not bother to go back to her “group” again. We did not have sex the very same night but the next two weeks (my entire stay in Kaohsiung) were spent in heaven with “Eden”. (That was her name…most Taiwanese have a double English name). She was 20 and wanted to study at a US University. Her dream was to become a fashion designer.
Other places to check out are Rock 22 in the Hai Lai Hotel, DNA, (supposed to have an Irish/ Australian/Canadian ??? management), Sexy at the Grand Formosa, and Pig and Whistle on Wufu Road. Apart from this there are numerous bars on Wufu 4th Street where the barwoman herself is “willing” to go with you !!!(Montana Bar off Wufu Road)
If you believe in paying money…then try walking into the numerous Barber shops at “every” corner of this sprawling city…and be at a risk of being refused because you are a foreigner(AIDS !!!) and/or the doorman does not speak English. Try taking a Chinese speaking companion with you. It is difficult to recommend any good one because most of these places have absolutely no English name but there is one on Santou Road very close to the Linden Hotel where I was staying which charges a flat fee of NT$ 1500(US$ 45)for an all inclusive service. The girls are rarely under 25 but a good value for the money. Barber shops can be identified by the revolving neon signs, a symbolic butterfly like a man who hops from “flower” to “flower”.
Patience is a virtue and if you have charm and are able to make both of these work for you, then you never ever have to pay a single dime for a “one-night-stand” Good luck !!! (Review # 5621)[/quote]

- This is an update on Kaohsiung, Taiwan. Beware of drinking and driving. The cops have become increasingly hard and even foreigners are not spared. Don’t try the old trick.“Sorry, I speak no Chinese” it does not work anymore.
“Sexy” has closed down. Jurassic Park has become a haven for drug abuse and even DNA is filled with drunk Englsh teachers. But here is the good news; try JDLondon Pub. It is close to the one and only Citibank outlet in Kaohsiung and the bar girls are pretty cute. They dance on the bar counter for you !!! A very new addition is Honky Tonk just across the street from Mamamia and “Passion” on Linsen Road. No 165. The scene on Wufu 4th Street has undergone a change too. Try Alices Pub. Nice girls and a lively atmosphere. And yes, if you are ready to get ripped off,walk into “Oh la la”
Pig and Wistle on Suwei Road is a good bet. Sunday is foreigners night and the bar girls are pretty nice too. It is up to you to strike up a conversation.
Apart from this if you are really looking for a “hot” encounter you will need a Chinese speaking friend to go with you. Believe me…some of the KTVs in the city have an amazing array of girls as young as maybe 16. They sing with you and sit on your lap and the list goes on and on. This can get pretty expensive. A night at such a KTV can run way over Us$ 400…but worth a “once in a lifetime” experience.
Enjoy life, guys !!! (Review # 6561)[/quote]
