As I recall Stalone doesn't like his face to be shot from one side or the other. Make sure you find out which it is. Sorry, can't remember which. Had the best GIANT tiger shrimp there, and a crab dish that was the best ever. You'll love it there.

go to the rasta bar and bubble s nightclub and get hammered.... every day

Make sure you lock your passport up in the safe if you head out to bubbles. Many chicks cruise the clubs looking for drunk american cameramen to rob their rooms, most pleasant form of robbery by all accounts.

Don t pick any fights with any thai s of farrangs, so many farrangs (white people) that train every day in muay thai and would love to show off to all their mates when drunk in the evening.

You can tell if it s a boy or a girl by the size of the hands.

Make sure your not shooting on the 13th or 14th of april as that s thai new year.

Rob Van Gelder will have some sensible advice. He also knows every facilities company, every bit of kit available in thailand and all the crew so make sure you have his mobile number firmly saved in your phone.

Hey Ronveto

Yes...like Thomas said, don`t fight with a Thailand people.
I Practice martial arts and Muay-Thai`s low kicks are very V-E-R-Y dangerous...
Post some pictures shooting Rambo.
I`d like see some of them.

Best regards,

Gus
