Proud Wearer of the Bangkok Blazer





Thank you, Geoff for the official invitation.

The Bangkok Gentlemen Spoofers are proud to have the World Spoofing Championships in Bangkok in 2016. On this page you will find all the information you need for you travel arrangements, your stay in Bangkok and the championships itself.

When: Wednesday 13.April 2016 from 3:30pm onwards 

Where: The British Club in Bangkok, Thailand


The British Club Bangkok is the venue where the Bangkok Gentlemen Spoofers are spoofing continuously for the last 27 years. We spoof there every Tuesday and we held every Thai National Championship (TNC) in the British Club. For those interested, you can read the article of the inaugural spoof here (from the Outpost Magazine).

As you may or may not know the 13. April 2016 is the first day of the Thai New Year celebrations. The Thai New Year is called Songkran and will take place from the 13th April 2016 to 15th April 2016.

In Bangkok it is celebrated pretty wet and crazy. Everywhere during Songkran there will be people throwing water(except in the British Club). Imagine a gigantic wet tee-shirt contest. Lower Silom (between Rama 4 Rd. and Narathiwas Rd.) is totally crazy. This is not the British Club side. Put your phone and wallet in plastic bags and smile when you get wet. In the traditional way the water pouring is meant as a symbol of washing away all of their sins and bad luck.

The whole city will be one big party area and it will be difficult to get around without being soaked, therefore the best way of reaching The British Club is Uber. We will update the Uber details later. Please check for more details soon.


Here are some Hotels recommended by us:

The closest hotel to the British Club is the Triple Two Silom Boutique Hotel.

Leaving through the back entrance of the hotel it is only 100 metre walk to the British Club. The risk of becoming wet while walking to the club tends to zero (well, I can't promise that). The Triple Two is a 4 star hotel in the 55 US$ per night price range if you book early. You can easily book the Triple Two following this link (via agoda).


Second closest to the British Club is the Narai Hotel right beside the Triple Two hotel. Same here: Leaving through the back entrance of the hotel it is only 100 metre walk to the British Club. The risk of becoming wet while walking to the club tends to zero (I can't promise that either). The Narai is also a 4 star hotel but a little older than the Triple two. Price range is about 40 to 45 US$ per night. Easily book the Narai Hotel here (via agoda).


Also close to the British Club is The Lebua at State Towers It is a 2-3 minutes ride by taxi to the venue (still located on Silom Road, should not cost more than 2 US$). The Lebua is a 5 star hotel and well known for the Scirocco Club on the rooftop. Price range is 115-150 US$ per night. Great hotel facilities if you want to relax in one place after the championships. Check out the Lebua here.


The Amara Bangkok Hotel is not located on Silom road but also just a 3 minutes taxi ride to the club (located on Surawong road). A 5 start hotel with great hotel facilities but slightly cheaper than the Lebua Towers. Price range is 80 to 95 US$ per night. Check and book the Amara Bangkok here.


The Le Meridien Bangkok Hotel is situated on Surawong road and a 5 minutes ride to the venue. Very close (walking distance) to the famous Patpong night market where we want to join for a few drinks the day before the championships. Price range is 95-115 US$ per night. Contestants should be able arrive at the venue dry as the hotel can fetch a taxi for you. Check out and/or the Meridien here (via agoda).


The Raya Surawong Hotel is located at the end of Suranwong road and also in walking distance to the famous Patpong night market. Taxi ride to the venue is about 5 minutes. A 3 Star hotel in the 55 US$ range. Book the Raya here (via agoda).


A very comfortable place is the Shangri-La. A 5 minutes taxi ride to the venue. The 5 star hotel to stay and relax. Well, price is about 180 US$ per night but worth any single dime. Spacious room and voted to the number one hotel in Asia for a couple of times. Book the Shangi-La here.



Last but not least the Novotel Fenix Silomm. A 4 star hotel with just a 3 minutes ride to the venue. Price is about 50 US$ per night. Highly recommended the hotel bar call Maggie Choo's with great entertainment every evening. If you stay in the Novotel Maggie Choo's is a must. Check it out or book here.

Molly Malone´s & Thai Cultural Tour 

Please join us on Tuesday the 12th at 6PM at Molly Malone’s Pub, 2nd floor  on Convent Road.  Happy hour beverages and finger food will be provided, just enough to whet your appetite, for the Thai Cultural Tour to immediately follow.

P S – Molly Malone’s details are  below. Tuesday evening is the beginning of Songkran Holiday in Thailand. If you have not been, imagine the world’s biggest wet tee-shirt contest. Put your phone and wallet in a plastic baggy(your hotel will not laugh at you when you ask for one). Traffic maybe incredibly bad. Avoid taxis. Walk or take BTS or MRT. Molly’s is a 3 minute walk from Sala Daeng BTS station.  You may still get doused with water in those 3 minutes, so feel free to wear your speedos, swimming goggles, and singlets! And don’t forget to smile when splashed!
