GUEST QUESTION
Hey Adam! This coming weekend in Berlin is supposed to be gorgeous and πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯!

Have you visited any of the *gay* lakes around Berlin and if so what do you recommend? Also, any tips for first timers?
Adam Groffman
HOST
Yessss! Can't wait for the sunshine to return! β˜€οΈ 🏊🏻 The FKK area at PlΓΆtzensee is a bit cruisey and fun. I also like Flughafensee as it's sometimes not as crowded as the others so it's easy to find a spot to chill out - but be warned there aren't any food/drink vendors there so make sure to bring your own.

But my favorite place for gay summer swimming is Stadtbad NeukΓΆlln- lots of gays, cheap and convenient!

I traveled Germany and when we'd stay at places, they would provide a breakfast of cheese, meats, breads and butter. It was amazing. Do you know what I'm referring to? I'm trying to find it again but I don't know what it's called or what the meats and cheeses were.

GUEST QUESTION
Are different places in Thailand - Bangkok, Pattaya, Phuket, etc materially different from each other and warrant a trip?
00:31
Adam Groffman
HOST
Yes! The north of Thailand is many jungles and mountains, Bangkok in the center is an urban metropolis, and the south is where you'll find all the beautiful Thai islands - each with their own vibe and atmosphere. Some islands are more popular for sports and activities, while others are better for parties or lounging. Check out my beginner's guide to Thailand here: http://travelsofadam.com/2014/05/first-time-thailand-guide/

Bangkok is very different from patong in phuket, if that's where you've been? Patong is awful. I love phuket, I hate patong.

Bangkok is am awesome vibrant city with the beat markets and great temples. Don't miss it.

Chiang Mai is super hipster, relaxed, very clean and not as crowded as Bangkok. More mild climate too. And the best temples.
Adam Groffman 2 months ago
Sarvesh Sah oh Bangkok is definitely its own kind of special city but you def have to enjoy city life to enjoy BKK! Chiang Mai is worth a visit but I still love Bangkok more
