Tawan Daeng ('red sun' in Isaan dialect) is a red hot Bangkok club that features live morlam music seven nights a week. Getting there's a bit of a challenge, but well worth it. The staff and patrons are incredibly friendly and hospitable to farang (foreigners), and are honored that you're visiting, for a taste of Isaan culture. The club is owned by an Isaan group, including Niwat "Mo" Luanthaisong, my gracious host for one evening. Tawan Daeng is one of the finest experiences in Bangkok, and shouldn't be missed.
