Tony Goddard - Hyatt Plaza Retrospective

The title refers to the now demolished Hyatt Plaza hotel and conference centre which dominated the landscape between the city and the airport. At this time Bangkok was a heady mix of cutting edge computer technology rubbing shoulders with the better known seedier side of the city - drug dealing, diamond smuggling, drinking, prostitution and the night club run by Howard Marx (Mr. Nice) which was raided during Tony's time there, and Tony's life reflected these contrasts.
