    Any recommendations for good nightclubs (on a Saturday night)?

    I am not a huge house fan, but a couple of electro clubs there: Roxanne Parlour (http://www.roxanneparlour.com.au/events/) Eurotrash (http://www.myspace.com/eurotrashbar) Wow at Inflation (inflation is the club, wow is the night) These are all pretty damn electro with a younger crowd (mostly under 25), playing the kind of stuff you would hear from the bag raiders, van she tech, cut copy dj's, so on. I found Roxanne and Eurotrash pretty cool and friendly, but Inflation is really a pretty crappy club (staff / bouncers are just downright horrible to patrons) but it does get some good acts playing there. All these clubs are in town, with Roxanne and Eurotrash close to one another in china town which is rad. Inflation unsurprisingly is in a more dodgy part of town but still easily accessible. Also check out what is going on at the Prince Bandroom in St Kilda - there are sometimes some awesome electro acts there and tram access to there is pretty good! If you meant more generic electro / house then I can't really help you :) almost 10 years ago

    Can I use a camera in public in Thailand?

    It depends what you mean by use a camera... While in general photography is fine, its not really polite to photograph specific locals without asking them... Keep in mind too that when you do ask them in a lot of the more touristy places they may say "Sure, but for a dollar"! over 10 years ago

    Safety in Thailand... Also have you got some tips for me to meet people while I'm away?

    Just from my experiences in Thailand, and around the region: If you are going to be travelling in a group then I assume you are backpacking, if that is the case then the place you are going to meet fellow travellers the easiest is at hostels / guest houses. The main district for guest houses in Bangkok is on and around Khao San Road (http://wikitravel.org/en/Bangkok/Khao_San_Road). There you will probably see a higher concentration of backpackers than anywhere else in Thailand. Whether you stay there, or at a guest house elsewhere, you will meet people, and you will find people who want to see and do similar things that you want to. This is pretty much the case with wherever you go actually. I found that I just floated from friend to friend over my time in SE Asia, a few days travelling here with this person, a few days exploring this city with the next... The great thing is spending a few days travelling around with someone and you really get to know them quick, its pretty awesome for meeting cool people :). As for safety, I am no expert, but basically it's a case of common sense. There are plenty of guides online on travel safety, and once again your fellow travellers will be a great sources of how dodgy various places are. over 10 years ago

    Are there any hardcore parties / raves in Australia?

    Still waiting back to hear back on hardcore parties in Australia from that mate. For harder dance in Hobart you might want to check out next friday at Syrup, with Alex Kidd playing (www.myspace.com/djalexkidddotcom). Mostly its going to be hardtrance/style/house, but I think the night is closing with a hardcore set from St Nick which is a rare thing in Hobart... I will definately be there so PM me if you want to catch up. over 10 years ago

    Good electro / breaks clubs or events on sat nights (will be there tomorrow!).

    Thanks guys. I ended up heading to Eurotrash. I was thinking of heading to Roxanne Parlour (in Cloverlid Place), so it was kind of convinient to go to Eurotrash instead which was just around the corner (in Corrs Lane, both just near where Russel St meets Lonsdale St). Eurotash itself was pretty awesome, it had a good, happy (although quite young, most people there were 18-21?) electro vibe. The first floor is more of a sit down relax and chat area, and then if you go up the stairs at the back you can find several more small bars, and lots of cozy (crammed?) places. Off a little door on the second floor was the main "club" area - basically a bit of a stage, another dj booth (there was one downstairs), another bar, and plenty of people dancing which was awesome :). The place had a slightly divey / trashy, vintage feel to it, but that suited well, and most of the music was fairly popular electro / electro house. over 10 years ago
