Yes, it’s a specialty item but yes, you can get a spray tan in Bangers – which is ideal if you ran out of time pre-departure and are headed for Thailand’s famous beaches. Or are going to a travel writers’ convention and are glowingly white and tower like a lily-hued giant over other people at the best of times and need to go a shade darker simply so you don’t look like a giantess alien who has come to eat everyone when it’s group photo time. So this is what I learned when I gave it a red-hot go.
1 There appears to be only one place to get a tan
2 Thai people really do get tans
3 Farang (foreigners) sweat like crazy in Bangkok
4 Sweaty farang should think twice about using public transport
5 If you think you stand out as a tourist in Bangkok already, just try looking like a tourist who’s just committed a (confusingly brown-tinged) murder
