Bangkok's Amsterdam Massage

I know a lot of guys who have the cash to splurge a bit with hot Thai girls working in soapies. Amsterdam Massage is the place to go just for that. It's one of the longest established soapy just a short distance from the Phra Ram 9 MRT station, less than a 5 minute walk.

Even though this soapies location is close to Sukhumvit it's still mostly visited by local Thais with cash to blow. Because a vast majority of the girls working inside are lighter skinned and in my books quite beautiful.

You might be wondering why Amsterdam is #3 on my top 5 favorite soapy massage list since they have hot girls. It's because I don't like the way most of the mamasans and papasans operate. There used to be a papasan I always dealt with named Pop but he's moved on to greener pastures.

Amstedam Massage - Entrance is on the other side of the building
As far as I know there is supposed to be no falang surcharges. I went there a couple of times last week and asked about prices for different girls and got different rates.

But I have a workaround on how to you might be able to get a fairer or truer price quote for girls you have your eye on.

What I would do is pick out 3 girls that I have absolutely no interest in. Whenever you ask a a pop or mom the price of the first girl you pick they are going to assume you like her and want to take her up to a room. So there is a possibility they will quote you a higher price.

Once I hear a price that sounds too expensive I'll hesitate for a few minutes and choose another girl that I have feigned interest for. And I'll repeat this again with a third girl. By now the pop or mom would probably think that I'm a cheap bastard and possibly walk away. Regardless, they want me to spend money and don't want a sale and commission to slip away.

So after inquiring and passing on the price for the 3rd girl they might finally give in and offer up the same prices as they would for a Thai local. And girls working in Amsterdam Massage range from 2600THB up to 5000THB. Recently one of my Thai buddies who love this soapy said there was a girl that cost him 5700THB but was absolutely worth every bit.

Amsterdam doesn't have a fishbowl setup so the section where the girls sit are in the back. You can ask to have a lady come over and have a drink or a chat with you. And you can also ask the mom or pop to get a bunch of girls to your table so you can have a closer look. Or you can just get your ass over to where they are sitting and gawk at them like a true pervert.

I like Amsterdam. It's easy to get to and quite often there are good looking girls. But I know a lot of guys don't like to deal with the bullshit of overpaying. So just do what I recommend up and maybe you might get a  fairer price.

The Bangkok Grand Inn Hotel

You're Either Going Like it or Hate It

The Grand Inn hotel is located on Sukhumvit soi 3, just right by the intersection of Sukhumvit road or what some would call Nana Square. It's a well known cheap hotel in minutes away from Nana Plaza, the hookers by Nana Hotel and practically surrounding the hotel. I mean really, if freelancers of color (Africans) and different nationality (Russians) is what you're looking for, the Grand Inn Hotel would be an obvious choice. The area is also a jackpot for ladyboy lovers too.

However, it's not one of the best hotels in the area like my 5 favorite Nana hotels that I recommend. Usually there are a lot of hotels where I can guesstimate that 95% of hotel guests enjoyed their stay. The Grand Inn has lots working for them in terms of location and the quality is not so shabby either after a renovation 4 years ago. And now it's seeing a bit of wear and tear.

To be fair, the Grand Inn is a really popular hotel due it's price range and location. And there are only 24 rooms so the hotel has seen quite a bit of action. After all, 1450THB plus taxes is the price for a 28 square meter room to be in prime location for whoring around. It's not wonder a lot of travelers prefer staying there.

Deluxe double room @ Grand Inn Hotel
There are quite a few other joiner free Sukhumvit hotels in the general vicinity of Nana soi 4 that are better choices but I know a lot of guys who'd rather not walk 10 minutes to NEP or any other areas for picking up bar girls and freelancers. If that's you then Grand Inn Hotel is a proper budget hotel for you.

For your reference, here is an email confirmation from Grand Inn regarding their guest friendly policy:
Dear,Mr. Jim Hunt

Thank you for your interested our hotel. The hotel is no charge for joiner, only keep ID card .

Best Regards,
Grandinn Hotel

Got Some Cash to Blow? Spend it at the Sherbet G Club in Bangkok

Bangkok's gentleman's clubs is a subject I haven't touched upon yet. And it's mainly because it's not a place where the general punter would want to go. And that's mainly because the G clubs in Bangkok has no guarantee that you're going to get laid. Plus the fact that it's expensive drink wise.

However, Sherbet and many other G clubs in Bangkok employ some of the finest looking ladies. Ladies that can put the hottest go go bar girls in Baccara or Rainbow 4 to shame.

G clubs typically hire tall fair skin girls which you will find in Sherbet. There are no short dark skinned Issaan girls working in there. Since a large percentage of the clubs clientele are rich Thai guys you can sure bet only the hottest young Thai girls are working there.

I mentioned that you're not guaranteed to have sex with any of those girls. That's because most of them are not your usual utility sex workers. You've got to have cash and I'm not talking about that 2500THB you have in your pocket for short time.

To get in their pants you have to buy them expensive gifts and take them out to fancy dinners. And a lot of the ladies working at Sherbert may understand a little bit of English, but you won't be able to converse with them like you would with bar girls who are used to foreigners. These are the kinds of girls that can easily find Thai/Foreign sugar daddies that want to impress the ladies.

Sherbet is set up as a club/karaoke where you choose from a wide selection of light skinned Thai girls. There are also a category called coyote girls and believe me they are super hot dancers. Every time you call one over you have to buy them lady drinks too. And no, you can't grope the girls or fondle them. They don't call it a gentlemen's club for nothing.

You can play drinking games with them, dance with them, converse with them if you're able to but I'm quite serious it's best to be on your best behavior and avoid being rude and crude. They can and are allowed to decline sitting with tourist/customers who are assholes.

G clubs are expensive when it comes to drinks. Beers cost 200THB and there's a 2 beer minimum so you're looking to spend 400THB off the bat. You don't even want to know the price of hard liquor and mixers.

However, you can become a member by parting a hefty portion of your cash. For about 30,000THB ($1000USD) you'll get 10 bottles of Johnny Walker scotch whiskey. The membership expires a year after sign-up but 10 bottles (which they will store for you) can quickly dry as you make frequent visits.  Plus lady drinks are reduced too. And you will get much better treatment as a member rather than a walk in customer.

I really suggest getting a membership. You can always get a bunch of friends to pool some cash. However, keep in mind that the membership can be under one name. In my group we picked the guy who drinks the least. If you're reading this buddy you know who you are.

So why would a guy go to a club like Sherbet or any other similar joint when there's no promise of getting laid? Well if you've been a frequent visitor to go go bars for a long while you might want to try and mix things up a bit.

A lot of the girls working in G clubs play hard to get. And there is a chance to get laid with a super hot Thai girl. But you're going to have to up your game and be prepared to spend some cash. I know a lot of guys want the thrill of picking up hot Thai girls which requires finesse.

Sherbet is located about a few minutes drive down Sukhumvit soi 63. The building is on the left hand side. There really is no dress code however, if you're really out to impress and want the full attention of some true Thai beauties it's best to put on some slacks and shirts and stow away the beach wear. And polishing your Thai language skills would really help too because the papasans and mamasans are really basic speaking English.

This Week's Deals on Guest Friendly Hotels

Suite Room - President Solitaire
If you're the type that wants to live it up in a bit of lap of luxury there is one hotel I would like to recommend on Sukhumvit Soi 11 called the President Solitaire.

For around 2400THB a night including breakfast you'll get a 50 square meter Premier Suite room. And of course this deal is limited plus the rates are only good before December 23rd travel dates. So if you're reading this now it's probably a good idea to book immediately. And you can check rates here for your travel dates through Agoda.

Suk Soi 11 is also a prime location with a lot of hotels between Soi Cowboy and Nana. And you can find a list of even more bar girl friendly hotels on one of my post here.

Woraburi Sukhumvit
For the budget minded travelers the always reliable Woraburi Sukhumvit Hotel has a big discount on standard rooms including breakfast. The price tag is around 1500THB per night.

The Woraburi is located on the deep end of Suk. soi 4 but the distance is walk-able to NEP and freelance pickup spots located on the upper half of the soi. Or just use the free tuk tuk service provided. This deal is ongoing until March 31, 2013 so no rush to book is needed.

Down at the Phrom Phong section of Sukhumvit there's a 60% discount for 55 square meter superior rooms at the Emporium Suites. Phrom Phong is sort of like a oil massage districts that doubles as brothels. And the cost of a superior room including the big discount is around 3800THB including breakfast and taxes.

I've written more about the Emporium Suites as well as other hotels near the oil massage shops with maps here.

GCP Ratchadamri
Recently I've been getting quite a few request for hotels with a guest friendly policy that are just a little far away from the red light districts. Yet still easy to get to one by taxi in around 5 minutes. For that I can easily recommend the Grand Centre Point Ratchadamri hotel.

It's basically located in the Chidlom district in central Bangkok close to the Central World shopping mall and the BTS Ratchadamri station. The current deal is stay 2 nights and get 30% off. So with the discount and taxes the price comes out to about 4000THB each night.

The Grand Centre Point Ratchadamri is an incredible value from the quality of their rooms to their top notch guest facilities.

A Night Out at Rainbow 4 Go Go Bar

Located on the 2nd Floor of NEP

If you've read my post on my 5 favorite go go bars in Bangkok then you'd know that Rainbow 4 at Bangkok's Nana Plaza is my top choice.

I haven't been there in awhile however but since I had a few buddies come by for a visit I decided to take them there for beers and to check out some fine Thai bar girls. According to the waitress staff there can be 50 to 80 girls inside at one time. With those kinds of numbers you can bet your bottom dollar there has to be more than a handful of cuties.

Rainbow 4 is quite a large bar with two island shaped stages. Once you get in you might have a hard time getting a seat by the left stage. Why? That's where the girls dance without their bikini tops. However, most of the prettier bar girls dance on the right stage.

Normally I recommend sitting right in front of the bar by the entrance wear the prettiest bar girls gather to attract passing punters.

As I mentioned I haven't been to Rainbow 4 for awhile. I spotted a super hot bar girl with the tag #3. She's got a cute face, a slim waist and a tight body.

Overall my friends and I had a great time but we didn't end the night there as we bar hopped around a bit and had a total blast.

So here are the current prices for a night out at Rainbow 4. Bar fines are 600THB. Beers cost 150THB and ladies drink are the same price too. And the usual rates apply for short time so the range is from 1500THB to 2500THB depending on the chosen girls looks and desirability.

Even though it looks like Nana Plaza is about to go through some sort of reconstruction I believe Rainbow 4 will always stand out to be one of the top go go bars in Nana.

Baccara Bar in Soi Cowboy Bangkok

One of the best go go bars in Soi Cowboy in my opinion is the Baccara.

They have some of the best looking bar girls with reasonably priced beers and a DJ with great taste in music.

I made a visit there last Monday with a few good friends of mine from the States. For one of them it was their first time ever at a Bangkok go go bar and he couldn't believe that there were so many hot bar girls working their magic.

And to be quite honest, through the years I've been making my go go bar rounds I have noticed that the quality of the ladies employed at Baccara are the top lookers of Soi Cowboy, followed closely by Shark Bar (a report on that soon) right next door. You can find a map of Soi Cowboy bars here.

I particularly like the bar girl with the #242 tag, she's got a cute face and even though she has an obvious nose job I have a big crush on her. At first she can have an icy exterior but when she gets to know you she puts her guard down and is quite a fun girl. Most popular girls in any bar do have an attitude however. It just goes with their territory.

Baccara has two levels. The first floor has a bigger stage with 2 sets of ladies rotating. Remember, the better looking girls are always positioned in the front of the stage, so be sure to grab a seat if you can anywhere in that area. You can see girls dancing on the second floor in school girl uniforms sans panties through the glass ceiling.

Normally I recommend sitting right in front of the bar by the entrance where the prettiest bar girls gather to attract passing punters. However, the best spot in the house is in the back by the bar on the upper right corner.

There are 2 stools only and if you sit on one of them you'll have direct access to check out the girls when they come off and onto the stage to change shifts. Another benefit to sitting on those stools is that the area is so tight that bar girls have to squeeze by and you can feel them brush up against you. The downside is that you'll also be bumping in to guys too. Oh well, you've got to take a bit of the bad with the good too right?

The second floor is the smoking level which I avoid because of the smoke. However, seeing the beautiful ladies dance topless on the second level is enough to make me a smoker. Bar girls on the first floor are always wearing bikinis.

The bar fine fee at Baccara is 600THB. However ther is a 2 lady drink minimum before you can take her out. One lady drink cost 160THB. Short time is the standard 2500THB for the hour and long time rates can range from 4000THB to 6000THB. Beers are reasonable at 150THB.

You have a better chance of getting a lower long time rate by bar fining the bar girl you have an eye on close to closing time which is 3AM.

Baccara is a great bar to hang out in and check out some of the prettiest go go bar girls at Soi Cowboy.

Ben Ten Massage in Patpong Bangkok

One of the Few Oil Massage Parlors I visit Near Patpong

Ben Ten Massage is located on Silom soi 6. It's an easy shop to find whether you're coming from the BTS Sala Daeng station or Silom MRT station.

Just an easy straight shot to soi 6 from Silom road right past Patpong's go go bars and night market. There's a big Citibank branch right directly opposite from the entrance of soi 6 so when you see it you'll know you're there.

I've been going to Ben Ten sporadically through the years because I'm not often in the Silom neighborhood but when I am and feel like a need for a rub and tug I'll make my way over there.

The soi has noticeably become busier because I remember just a few years back it was really quiet.

Soi 6 on Silom is not particularly a seedy section of Patpong. There's a mix of legitamate Thai massage shops with a bunch of gay massage parlors closer to the Surawongse side of the soi and then we have Ben Ten which mostly caters to the Japanese customers. But they won't mind the odd foreigner that comes in and welcomed by a very friendly English speaking owner/mamasan.

Now there are many oil massage parlors in Patpong and most of them are legit, meaning no monkey business. Shops that do offer happy endings are quite spread out and limited to providing hand jobs only.

Ben Ten Massage is just one of the few shops that offer up full happy ending service for 1500THB for an hour. Though I typically go for the testicle massage plus hand job which cost 1300THB for an hour. And you only get one shot. Sounds kind of pricey right?

Yeah, compared to Akane where you can get a body scrub + hj with multiple shots for around 900THB, Ben Ten is pricey.

But the quality of the ladies at Ben Ten are marginally better than the massage girls at Akane. Which is one of the reasons why I like Ben Ten. And their rooms are clean and really comfortable. So you won't hear the noises of a customer getting their groove on like you would at Akane with it's simple wall partitions and curtains.

The massage mattress @ Ben Ten

I took a picture of the massage room at Ben Ten but my iPhone 4's camera did a piss poor job of capturing the entire room. But take my word for it, their rooms are clean. And their shower rooms, which are located on a different section of the floor are clean too.

So every time I go to Ben Ten I always choose their 1 hour oil massage + testicle massage + hj for 1300THB. I've never tried tried their 1500THB full service which on their menu reads "The Golden Course".   Because not all of the girls employed their do full service. And the ones that do are usually in their early to late 30's.

Ladies in the early to mid 20's are the girls that provide hj services. Typically, whichever course you choose the mamasan will call out the available girl which are all in the same room on the ground floor behind a partition watching Thai soap operas on the television. So you can check out any available ladies, just ask the mamasan.

The best time to pay a visit to Ben Ten in my experience is around 6pm. Anytime later all the better looking girls are probably up in the rooms. Their hours are from 12pm to 12am.

Ben Ten is heavily advertised in Japan especially in a magazine called G Diary, which is a directory of adult entertainment establishments. So they do have a lot of Japanese clientele.

Two Really Nice Hotels in Central Pattaya with Discounts

Whenever I am in Pattaya I always recommend staying right in central Pattaya, preferably right around the Soi Diana and Soi LK Metro area.

And now I've spotted two guest friendly hotels in Pattaya to stay in that have 30% discounts. And both properties are in the LK hotel chain so you know you're getting a good quality rooms.

The first hotel is LK Renaissance right near the entrance of Soi Diana from Second Road.

So what's the big deal about this LK. How about a 60 square meter room all for around 2800THB with a full buffet breakfast. That's a massive sized room and it's the cheapest one too or what they call the superior rooms!

And the location is opposite from a cluster of beer bars and one of my favorite go go bar called Papa Go Go.

Check rates for your travel dates and read more guests reviews for LK Renaissance Pattaya.

Then further down right in the heart of Soi LK Metro is the LK Metropole Hotel. No surprise that the guy who owns the hotel also owns the plot of land surrounding the hotel with very popular go go bar names like Champagne A Go Go, The Office and another of my new favorite bars, Showgirls.

A standard room at the Metro cost around 2100THB with breakfast too. And though a room is not as big as the Renaissance you still get a 36 square meter room which is still roomy.

Check rates for your travel dates and read more guest reviews for LK Metropole Pattaya.

Both are highly recommend bar girl friendly hotels in prime location!

The Dawin Hotel Bangkok

Dawin Bangkok Hotel Sukhumvit soi 4
The Dawin Bangkok Hotel is located halfway down on Sukhumvit soi 4, just where it begins to quiet down from all the noise and crowds of hookers and punters associated around Nana Plaza. So the Dawin is an ideal place to stay in when you don't want to be less than a 5 minute walk from bar girls, street hookers and cold beers.

I've been recommending the Dawin since it first opened in 2008 to all of my friends who wanted a clean modern hotel room. But it hasn't quite made it to my Top 5 Nana Hotel list because there are other places to stay on and around soi 4 that are a better value. That's not to say that the Dawin is not worth the money. Compared to the hotels I've stayed in the West within the same price range, the Dawin is an excellent value.

However, what might be off putting to some is that their cheapest rooms which are called the standard rooms are small at 23 square meters. Sure for one or 2 guests that's not bad. But considering that the price of their standard room cost about 1950THB plus taxes and no breakfast is a major reason why they are not on my favorite Nana hotel list. And you can get good rates for a room at the Dawin through our partner reservation here.

A standard room at Dawin
And it doesn't help that their superior rooms which is the next grade up is only 27 square meter and cost a few hundred Baht more.

Despite the fact I know a lot of guys who I have recommended the Dawin to consistently go back. They enjoy the hotels service and friendly staff and most importantly the location and proximity to Nana's nightlife.

One final note I have to add is you might have read on Tripadvisor from a member that the Dawin charged a joiner fee. But if you look at the end of the comment you'll see that the member traveled as a couple.

As you can see from the email below they will charge a joiner fee if you bring in a third lady, ladyboy or whatever you will be charged 500THB. Check out my threesome hotel blog post if you want to find out which places let you allow more than one bar girl to a room with no hassles.

For your reference here is an email confirmation from Dawin Hotel stating their guest friendly policy:
Dear Sir; 
Thank you so much for your interest in our hotel, and we would like to inform you that the room maximum for 2 persons, this mean you can bring one guest no charge, additional adult 500 baht would be charge. And also she must leave ID card at the main desk.
Look forward to hearing from you to continue booking 
Best regards,
KanokwanReservation officer

Bangkok Nightlife: Q&A

Questions and Answers About Bangkok's Playgrounds

Here are some common questions I've received through the years that I have compiled together and think would make a good post. There are many nonchalant questions but I've selected ones that I think are worth posting here.

Like how much one should budget for nights in the red light districts of Bangkok to something as important as HIV and safety. Speaking about HIV, you'll read about once freaky experience I've been through and would never forget.

I figured that if these types of questions come up often they must be of some type of significance for those visiting the city's nightlife

I've chosen 5 questions and answered them the best I could based on my experience. But my answers are not set in stone and everybody's experience into the city's nightlife can vary greatly.

How many days in Bangkok is enough to do (almost) everything?

Personally I think 1 full week is enough time. Which is about what most guys have available for taking off from work. With 7 days you can also make a side trip to Pattaya for at least a few days at the end or in between, since Pattaya is only 2 hours away by bus. You can still enjoy the company of Thai working girls even if you only have 1 night in Bangkok or at least 6 hours but of course that's not enough time to cover all the places for a well rounded experience.

The best thing about Bangkok's nightlife is that everything is close to everything. The city's train system the BTS Sky Train and MRT subway are steps away from many adult oriented establishments. And taxis are affordable. If you're traveling with friends, say about 3 to 4 people it's actually cheaper to take a taxi then ride the train if you're getting around central Bangkok. However, in most instances the city's public train systems will get you from one nightlife hot spot to the next the quickest.

Bangkok's adult entertainment industry basically revolves around 3 go go bar locations in the city; Patpong in the Silom district then Nana Plaza and Soi Cowboy that are both in the Sukhumvit district.

From Nana Plaza you can walk to Soi Cowboy since the two are the closest to each other in Sukhumvit. And in between those two nightlife centers are many beer bars, a couple of soapy massage parlors and a handful of popular clubs. 15 minutes is all it takes to get from one to the other.

Which is why it's a wise decision to select a hotel anywhere between Nana Plaza and Soi Cowboy. There are many budget Sukhumvit hotels and 5 star hotels that allow guests to invite one hooker at a time to their room. If you're planning on inviting more ladies to a room at one time consider these hotels for threesomes that are all in the Sukhumvit area.

While Patpong is still near Sukhumvit the distance still requires a short taxi ride or a ride on the BTS Sky Train or MRT subway trains. While I have nothing against Patpong, it's the red light district with the fewest choices of gf hotels to pick from.

Where you're staying in Bangkok is important if you're planning to party hard. Because if you're solely relying on taxis to get around you risk ending up stuck in traffic. And even if taxis are cheap, precious time wasted on the commute is not a good start to the night.

So if you want to maximize the days you have in Bangkok, I strongly advise to not pick a hotel near the old historic part of the city which includes Chinatown and Grand Palace because they are far from Sukhumvit. You really don't want to deal with that commute. Staying at a hotel in Khao San Road is far too though there are working girls in the area but your options for getting laid are limited.

And as a reminder that just because a hotel has they policy of letting guests bring hookers to their rooms doesn't mean that management provides call girls. So you'll either have to scavenge the sois and go go bars of Bangkok or use the services of an escort agency or order up out-call massage services.

Better yet you can stay at a hotel near Thai prostitute hang out spots so you never have to step out too far away from the comforts of your hotel.

How Much Money is Enough for 1 Week in Bangkok's Red Light Districts?

Well this is really up to each man's libido and especially how rich you are. A lot of other factors come into play to such as how much one can drink because beer and hard liquor for yourself and the ladies can add up quickly.

While I was a casual visitor all those years ago I budgeted about $200USD a day. I didn't spend that entire amount every night however. Because you can pay the 500THB bar fine, pay a bar girl for 1500THB short time and buy a few drinks all for under 3000THB ( $100 bucks).

And if you're really disciplined with your money and go completely cheap you can get a street hooker for 1500THB ($50 bucks) a night for the hour, though keep in mind you'll only get one shot not unless she agrees to give you more.

There is no silver bullet answer to this question I on several occasions simply tell people just bring as much money as you can. Otherwise 4500THB ($150USD) per night is a good start.

Crime, HIV and other STDs - Should I Be Worried?

Violent crimes against foreigners can happen but they're not random like you would see in other major capitals of the world. From what I know I only hear of foreigners getting the shit kicked out of them because they were being drunk and disrespectful.

Foreigners getting robbed and mugged by locals in heavily traveled sections of Bangkok is not common. But that doesn't mean that it has never happened because I think most victims wouldn't report a crime believing that it's just a waste of time. Bangkok is a safe city but you should use your common sense and stick to areas where there are a lot of people. I wouldn't worry about crime but I never let my guard down either.

HIV and other sexually transmitted nasties is still a huge possibility whenever you're involved with a prostitute in Thailand, especially the ladies that work the streets.

Sure, bar and massage girls have to be tested and deemed disease free before they can work in any establishment. But Thai women working the sex industry can easily get falsified medical documents from the local clinic. So it's really up to their place of employment to keep their ladies clean.

About 5 years ago I was with a massage girl in one of the Teen Massages in Phrom Phong. My condom broke inside of her and I only found out when I already finished. To make things worse somehow there was blood. Not mine but hers. I freaked out and of course she was too. Her face was as white as a sheet and I could tell she was really worried. And I really felt sorry for her. I told her I would go to the hospital and get a test done and show her I'm HIV free and we both agreed to meet up when her shift was over.

So I went to Bumrungrad Hospital and got a HIV test and my results were returned hours later. I then went to a meet up point and showed her proof that I wasn't infected. She assured me that she wasn't infected either and she said she was on the pill in case of an event such as this. I believed her because she actually looked more frightened and worried than I.

Suffice to say I went back to the hospital to get a check up 7 months later to be on the safe side so all is well. Of all the dumb things that has happened in my life that moment totally scared the crap out of me and is one that remained in my record book.

From my experience all bar girls working in go go bars, oil and soapy massage parlors are really careful when they put a condom on me. And they're just as careful taking it off when the deed is done. Which shows they are very cautious and that's always a good sign.

Either way, don't be stupid and always wear a rubber. And if you ever meet a girl suggesting if you pay more money for condom-less sex I would immediately find another lady.

Where Can I Find 200THB an Hour Hookers in Bangkok?

Of all the emails that jam into my inbox this one takes the cake. My question is does anyone really want to be with a prostitute with a price tag that low? Anyways as far as I know there are no super cheap working girls in Bangkok. If there is one it's probably someone that is on the last leg of their career.

Which is what I see in Pattaya's Beach Road where you can find cheap 500THB hookers. All of the girls working that cheap are either old or have some kind of serious health or mental issues.

Besides, you should really be cautious about any working girl offering herself up for that cheap. It could be some kind of scam to get into your room to rob or worst she could be under-aged and working a scheme to get you arrested unless you can come up with a huge sum of money. A little dose of paranoia and skepticism can be healthy.

Where to Find Thai Bi-Sexual Girls?

You'd have to pay Thai call girls to get into lesbian acts if you want some sort of threesome. The Thai variety of lesbians is one female called the 'Tom' which plays the butch role in the relationship and the 'Dee' girl which is the female. Toms would never get into bed with a man and besides, you wouldn't even think of sleeping with a Tom if you seen one.

But I have to give applause to Toms because they have some of the finest Thai girlfriends I have ever seen. Man, I wish I knew their pickup secrets.

Anyways in Patpong, Soi Cowboy and Nana red light districts you might be hard pressed to find a genuine experienced lesbians. As long as you're paying the girls will get into the act.

A Quickie Post...

Heaven@4 Hotel on Sukhumvit soi 4 has a stay 4 nights and pay for 3 discount again. The hotel is in a great location and I've written a post here with a map showing where all the hot spots are nearby as well as the guest friendly confirmation.

So the deal is book 4 nights, pay for 3 and each night cost around 1125THB, just a little over $32 bucks. As you can imagine it's a really popular hotel and even though it's only 3 years old it's seeing some signs of wear and tear already. But because of the value and location I think it's still worth staying there. It's a limited deal so if you're coming to Bangkok soon you should book ASAP.

This Week's Best Hotel Deals in Bangkok Oct. 29th, 2012

As usual there are many hotel deals even though the high season is rolling in. But discounts can be found and money saved for hotels in Bangkok. I've sorted out some of what I think are fine hotels near Nana and Soi Cowboy right in the Sukhumvit district.

So choosing any of the hotels below means that go go bars and beer bars are in walking distance. And these hotels are close to the Nana BTS Sky Train station so you can check out the oil massage parlors that are only a few stops away near the Phrom Phong BTS station.

Recommended Hotels with Discounts

President Park Hotel

If you're planning on staying in Bangkok's Sukhumvit district for at least a week and want to stay at a 4 star quality hotel then you should check out President Park Hotel.

Currently there's a stay 7 nights get 30% off discount. With taxes and a free breakfast you're looking to pay about 2000THB a night for a standard room. 

Not only is that a real bargain but you'll also have plenty of space. A standard room at the President Park is 36 square meters.

There's no rush to make a reservation, from what I see so far this discount ends December 2013.

Only drawback is that the hotel is located quite away down Sukhumvit soi 24, about a 10 to 15 minute walk. However, you're still going to be near many oil massage parlors that provide happy endings near the Phrom Phong BTS Sky Train station.

Centre Point Sukhumvit 10

I wrote a recently post about where to stay to have threesomes in Bangkok. And I pointed out that serviced apartments are the way to go when you want to bring back a few ladies to your room at the same time.

Well CP on Sukhumvit soi 10 is a serviced apartment. So you can always arrange a couple of ladies you've met working the streets to come to your room. Or you can just bring them along with you hand in hand and the CP won't even blink an eye or demand a joiner.

The special discount rate for now is book 2 nights and you'll get 47% off for a deluxe room. With tax and free breakfast it comes out to 2200THB per night. And a deluxe room at the CP Sukhumvit 10 is big too at 38 square meters. So there's plenty of space to mess around during a threesome.

The special discount ends on December 31, 2012 so I wouldn't wait too long to reserve a room.

Citichic Boutique Suites

I really like this hotel even though I don't mention it as much as I should. 

So the Citichic is in sort of a particular quiet location down the far end of Sukhumvit soi 13. However you can easily skip over to soi 11 at night for partying in Q Bar and other various club/bar venues.

Besides the fact that it's a very well maintained hotel with professional and courteous staff the location has a very laid back vibe which I truly enjoy.

Though to be honest the price is a bit high considering the location but that's not really a big negative. As of writing there is a 50% discount for a deluxe room so the cost is around 2100THB per night with taxes only. Can you get a hotel on Sukhumvit with similar quality and lower price? Sure, but as I said the location is very laid back, peaceful and not crowded at all. So it's still a good bargain.

Aspen Suites

Located on a quiet end of Sukhumvit soi 2, Aspen Suites is a nice little gem that's not far away from Nana Plaza, just a 10 minute walk.

Though you can always make use of the free tuk tuk ride provided by the hotel to get to the heart of the action.

It's a newish hotel at only 4 years old so the condition of the property is still fresh. And a superior room cost about 1900THB with taxes after a 50% discount. And the rooms are about 30 square meters so it's big enough for a comfortable stay.

Find rates and read more reviews for Aspen Suites.

I particularly chose all of the above hotels because they have many positive reviews from guests. And I realize that the rates are still a little high for some even though the discounts are deep.

So for guys who would rather spend more money on booze and bar girls then I suggest staying at the highly recommend Sam's Lodge Hotel. You can book a standard room that's 20 square meters for around 1000THB plus taxes. The hotel is located near the corner of Sukhumvit Soi 19 right by the Terminal 21 shopping center which means Soi Cowboy, the BTS and MRT stations are within walking distance.

Where to Stay in Bangkok for Threesomes

Having a threesome is a once in a lifetime experience I know most guys think about. And in Bangkok such desires can easily be fulfilled.  And even though there are many hotels in Bangkok that are guest friendly and allow you to take one girl to your room at a time; the question is how can a guy take two girls to a room and still avoid the dreaded joiner charge?

Now there are a handful of nightlife establishments that provide threesome services. Eden Club is one of Bangkok's most well known spot where you choose 2 girls, in which one does anal. Most oil massage shops that provide happy endings also provide some type of 2 girl action on their menu for customers.

And of course you can always hire a couple of Nana hookers on Soi 4. Which is where most guys go when they want to organize a threesomes. Getting a couple of girls from a go go bar and paying those bar fines is just too costly. Although most Thai working girls are not bi-sexual they sure will oblige when the amount of money offered is just right.

Now if you've read my post quite often you would've learned that most hotels with a guest friendly policy typically allow one girl to your room at one time. Otherwise you'll have to pay a joiner fee for the second girl.

Alas, all hope is not lost for those who fantasize about getting it one with 2 ladies. What you should do is stay at a serviced apartment in Bangkok.

Most places to stay in Bangkok operating as serviced apartments are usually in the 3 star range and can go up to 5 star like the Grande Centre Point Sukhumvit by Terminal 21 at the Asoke junction. There are a lot of Centre Point serviced apartments spread around Bangkok, but the one I mentioned is in a great location and built right into a new mall.  Also the BTS and MRT train station entrances are very close. Plus Soi Cowboy is a short 5 minute walk across Asoke road.

There is another Centre Point Sukhumvit Hotel on soi 10 to check out too. It's slightly cheaper because it's an older property but still well worth the money and an excellent value.

Another popular serviced apartment group in Bangkok are the Citadine properties. And you can find several of their properties right between Nana and Soi Cowboy red light districts on Soi 8 and Soi 11. Both Citadines properties are also in excellent locations, though the one on Soi 11 is closer to a lot of popular bars and clubs.

Another serviced apartment worthy of mentioning is the Omni Tower Serviced Residence on Sukhumvit Soi 4. Their rates are reasonable with big rooms and the location is really good for picking up street hookers up and down Soi 4. Russian hookers have also taken up residence at the Omni too.

Though Centre Point, Omni Tower and Citadine properties are labeled as apartments, they are also hotels so you can stay just one night or as long as you'd like with no lease to sign. Most serviced apartments are at least 28 square meters in size and typically include small kitchenette with a sink and microwave.

If you're thinking about inviting more than 2 girls, ladyboys or whatever back to your serviced apartment room I recommend doing so discreetly. You can bring two girls up to the room first and then head back down and get the rest. All serviced apartment rooms have an electronic safe located in the closet. So you can and should lock up your valuables.

From my experience Centre Point Hotels do not require any ladies that you wish to bring to your room leave their ID cards with security or reception. Citadines and Omni Tower for some reason only ask for ID cards from the ladies sometimes. So please make sure somehow that anyone you invite back to your room is 18 and over.

And of course whatever damages to the room your guests may have inadvertently caused is your responsibility. So keep everything in check to avoid any problems.

Pattaya's Beach Road Hookers

Pattaya’s red light district has a big freelance scene too which is mainly focused up and down Beach Road, from Soi Diana to Walking Street. It’s a favorite place for punters looking for the company of Thai girls and escape paying bar fines and spending on overpriced lady drinks.

You can find the ladies sitting or standing around in groups under palm trees. And the usual Johns are not too far away often mingling with the ladies. They are all on the sidewalk by the beach which is about 3km long. Though most of the girls hang around on from Pattaya Soi 7 and up to the entrance of Walking Street.

Prices for freelancers on Pattaya’s Beach road can go as low as 500THB. Can it go lower? Sure. But like anything else you’ll get what you pay for. And a 500THB hooker in Pattaya means you’ll be shacking up with lady with the least desirable looks. So you can imagine what a 200THB hooker will probably get you a souvenir.

So are there good looking girls working the freelance scene in Pattaya? Well, I do believe that beauty is in the eye of the beholder. From the times that I have spent time on Beach Road I’ve only seen a handful of girls that I’d actually want to take back to my hotel room.

I’ll probably catch a lot of flak for saying that because I know there are a lot of guys who think Pattaya’s street hookers are comparable to the birds in Bangkok or even better. But so far in my experience that’s really not the case. Sorry, just being truthful. A lot of the girls on Beach road are worn around the edges. And many are even on the last leg of their long career as a prostitute.

Good news is, well at least for guys who love visiting Pattaya’s red light districts is that Beach road hookers are quite flexible in regards to how much they charge. In Bangkok, say for example hookers in Nana you may be hard pressed to find a decent looking lady spend short time with you for 1000THB.

In Pattaya you have a much better chance of scoring a short time date for 1000THB with a half decent looking lady. Thanks to the fact that the cost of living for Thais in Pattaya is lower than it is in Bangkok, the ladies are more willing to work on how much they charge.

Long time rates are just as flexible it seems. I was taking a stroll with a good buddy of mine and he spotted a decent looking girl. She was in her late 20’s, with jet black hair, big eyes and a nice body. He struck up a conversation with her which eventually led to him asking if she’d agreed to a 3000THB long time price. This was at around 9pm mind you which was early in the night. And he told her she could leave at 9am. Surprisingly she agreed with no hesitation.

Pattaya pretty much sums it up as a budget sex tourists dream locale. And with so many affordable girl friendly hotels near Beach road I can understand the attraction.

Now I’m always the suspicious type. In my mind I was wondering what’s wrong with her. She had all her teeth, toes and fingers. And my friend’s a seasoned veteran of Thai whores. So he knows what he’s doing and what to do if there are any red flags. And no matter what you always know you’re taking some type of risk when you’re in the company of street hookers.

She spoke a fair amount of English which meant she’s been a working girl from some time and for the few hours I’ve hung out with my friend and his date she showed no signs of why she would sell herself so short.
You can imagine how anxious I was to find out how everything went the following morning. At 9am on the dot I called him expecting him to tell me he had a nightmarish experience of epic proportions.

It turned out he had a good time. The only real quirk he pointed out was she padded her bra to make her tits bigger. Most Thai working girls do that anyways so that’s not a big deal. And she definitely had a baby or two judging from the stretch marks on her stomach. But overall, he says he’s had better.

So even from previous times when I’ve been out around Pattaya I usually ask the hookers on Beach road how much they would charge from long time. And if I average out the rates it would come out to about 4000THB. There are girls who ask for 5000THB and when I do hear that I try to contain myself from laughing. Judging from their looks and age I believe they are a few shrimps short of a tom yum gung.

To date I’ve never picked up a hooker on Beach road. But I can see why so many guys on the prowl in Pattaya do. Because there are a lot of ladies in that particular area throughout the night. And no matter how much they have in their pocket

You can find hookers working Beach road from sundown to sunup. Not surprisingly even African prostitutes are beginning to make themselves comfortable among their Thai sisters. Russian ladies are not quite yet on Beach road since they're probably making loads of money in the bars. But I too wouldn't be surprised to see ladies of the former Soviet bloc making an entrance on Pattaya's freelance scene in the near future.

Soi LK Metro in Pattaya: My Favorite Area to Stay and Play

Entrance of Soi LK Metro on Soi Buakow

I get asked a lot where I choose to stay while I'm visiting Pattaya's red light districts. While there's no 'real' disadvantage by anywhere near the vicinity of Walking Street or up and down Beach Road, there is one area partuicular are I prefer. And that's Soi LK Metro.

Soi LK Metro is right in the middle of everything and less than a 10 minute walk to Beach road. And I usually walk through Mike's Shopping Center just to soak up the air conditioning. LK Metro is an L shaped Soi with entrances at Soi Diana and Soi Buakow.

So why do I like staying there? For starters Champagnes a go go, one of my favorite Pattaya bars is right there on the corner of Soi Diana and LK Metro. Besides having mostly fine looking ladies from afternoon to night their prices for drinks are quite reasonable and the atmosphere is friendly. And on Wednesdays and Fridays 9pm to 1am there's free pizza!

There is a new go go bar that opened just a few weeks too called Showgirls. Be sure to check out their cuties working the doors as well as the dancers inside. I made my first visit there just a few days ago and really enjoyed myself. There's 2 floors but it seems like the 2nd floor is much livelier with a stage where the girls pole dance. I met a couple of cute and friendly ladies and had a great time. I'll be sure to visit there soon.

The Devil's Den Pattaya should not be missed if you have a porn star wish to fulfill. On the menu are 2 ladies for 3600THB with 90 minutes of playtime. And you can finish as many times as your body is able too. There rooms are pretty cool too with a big bed, plenty of mirrors, porn on television and even a sex swing. Devil's Den girls perform lesbian acts and anal too if that's your thing. And for 3600THB it's really a bargain if you think about it.

And that's not where the fun ends. MASH and Office go go bars are worth a visit too. And around the corner on Soi Buakow, Sugar Sugar and Club Oasis are also worth a drop by.

Bar fine cost in the go go bars of Soi LK Metro are 600THB. Short time prices range from 1500THB to 2500THB depending on the girls looks for course. Long time rates can start from 3000THB. And drink prices are reasonable and the happy hours are a bargain.

Areca Lodge entrance. In the background is Keerati Hotel

Where to stay in Soi LK Metro

There are two hotels that I highly recommend and I've already made reviews. The first is Keerati Homestay and the other is Areca Lodge Pattaya. I like both of those hotels not only because of the location but because of the convenience and cleanliness. And yes, both are confirmed as guest friendly so no worries about taking a lady back to a room and getting hit with a joiner charge.

The Keerati cost about 1000THB ($30USD) per night though just remember to pick a room in the back to avoid the noise. The Areca cost about 1500THB ($50USD). And both hotels have access to swimming pools and a fitness center. Which to choose? If you're on a budget and don't mind blaring music from the bars until 2am Keerati Homestay is the pick.

And those songthaew baht buses run along Second road so you can easily get to other parts of the area for 10THB. Don't even ask the driver how much, just hand the 10THB or else you'll hear a higher fare price.

So those are just two bar girl friendly hotels I recommend in Pattaya that I personally stay in. Just like my favorite hotels in Bangkok's Nana red light district the Keerati and Areca are the first hotels I tell my friends to stay at.

Sure, we all know Walking Street is the mecca of go go bars with a lot of hot Thai bar girls. But when the sun comes down it's crowded with all kinds of tourists. And I do mean all kinds. You'll see families and grannies walking toe to toe along the punters. Is Walking Street becoming the Patpong of Bangkok?

Soi LK Metro entrance from Soi Diana

Don't get me wrong. I love the entertainment and especially the company of women found in the nightlife establishments in Walking Street. And the quality of the ladies there and fun factor is light years compared to Patpong.

But if you want to be in a place in Pattaya where you can find beautiful and friendly bar girls with affordable hotels then Soi LK Metro is where you should stay.

Pattaya Girl Friendly Hotels with Discounts

Currently I've been receiving more request for the names and reviews of hotels in Pattaya that are guest friendly. As well as requests for more information on Pattaya's go go bars, beer bars and soapy massages. I'll certainly do all that soon in due time. Thanks for the patience and understanding.

So for now, below you will find 6 places to stay in Pattaya that are either close to Beach Road for picking up hookers and Walking Street for go go bars. And better yet, all of the hotels have some kind of discount rates going on.

My Recommended Pattaya Hotels

Ibis Pattaya Hotel
The Ibis Pattaya is not exactly close to Walking Street for go go bars but remember, that's not the only place where you can find bar girls. There are lots of go go bars within central Pattaya as well. Besides, you can get to Walking Street quickly with a ride on the Baht bus for just 10THB.

Normally I recommend hotels that are in walking distance to the action that guys desire. However, I know that the Ibis is a very popular hotel group which is why I'm recommending it here.

And besides, there's a good discount going on. Book 3 nights and you get 33% off. So the price comes out to about 1170THB ($39USD) per night with taxes. Though keep in mind the special rates applies only for rooms with twin beds and this deal is valid until November 11, 2012.

Check current rates and read more guests reviews for Ibis Pattaya.

Eastiny Hotel
Moving on to central Pattaya's part of Beach Road, the Eastiny Residence Hotel is having a stay 7 nights and pay for 6. To sweeten the deal, breakfast is included on all days too.

With taxes the rate for each night comes out to around 1175THB ($39USD). This deal is valid until the end of this month.

It's not a new hotel mind you, but it's still very well maintained and clean. And they have a lot of well deserved positive reviews. Besides, it's not expensive and it's located not too far away from the beach.

Check current rates and read more guests reviews for Eastiny Residence.

Citin Loft
Citin Loft Pattaya is not exactly right by the beach, which is only a 10 minute walk. And you might want to catch the Baht bus to Walking Street.

Or you can just head over to Soi Buakow or around Soi Diana for go go bars and beer bar action. Another words, you're not far from the company of a Thai working girl.

It's still in a decent location in central Pattaya. And their rooms are clean and modern since the hotel was built in 2009. And right now until the end of this month you can book their superior rooms for about 1300THB ($43USD) per night with taxes added. That's a savings of about 25%.

Check current rates and read more guests reviews for Citin Loft.

LK The Empress
The LK The Empress is a brand new hotel directly across from Beach Road. So if you want a hotel where you easily head across the beach with a wide choice of prostitutes to invite back to your hotel the LK Empress is it. It's rated as a 4 star hotel and I've been hearing a lot of good reviews.

And the location of the hotel is in easy walking distance to surrounding go go bars and beer bars. Plus there are a lot of shopping centers nearby to waste the day away. Mike's shopping center is around the corner from the hotel and a good place to pick up souvenirs and knick knacks.

The LK hotel names are all over Pattaya and what I particularly like about staying at any of their properties are that their rooms are well designed and spacious. And they usually include a terrace or balcony space. Right now there's a 30% discount for a modern 32 square meter room which comes out to 2400THB ($80USD) per night with taxes. This discount is valid until December 22, 2012.

Check current rates and read more guests reviews for LK The Empress.

There are two more girl friendly Pattaya hotels with discounts I recommend and I've blogged about them previously. The first is Golden Ville Boutique Hotel and the other is Sunshine Hotel and Residence. Both of them are in central Pattaya and relatively close to the Beach Road.

So that's pretty much it for this week. All of the places I recommend above are well like by frequent Pattaya visitors so I hope you enjoy! And check back in a little while. I'll be writing up a bunch of posts on Pattaya's red light district.

Hotel Mermaid Bangkok Review

Hotel Mermaid on Sukhumvit road soi 29

If you're looking for a new hotel in Bangkok in quiet area but still close to Soi Cowboy then consider staying as a guest at Hotel Mermaid on Sukhumvit road soi 29.

The Mermaid was completed in 2011 and just a 100 meters from Sukhumvit. Walking to Soi Cowboy would take about 10 minutes and if you walk the opposite direction on Sukhumvit towards the Emporium Mall and Phrom Phong BTS station and you hit up on a lot of popular body to body oil massage shops in 10 minutes too.

It's a nice medium sized hotel in an residential area so yeah it looks like a family friendly place to stay. But the Mermaid Hotel has a policy of allowing guests to invite prostitutes for overnight stays. So for solo travelers who enjoy the company of Thai girls don't have to worry about paying joiner fees.

However, since the hotel is on Sukhumvit soi 29 some ladies working in bars and on the streets might be hesitant to go with customers on short time. It has to do with getting back to where you picked them up. Remember, a vast majority of Thai street hookers are in the Nana red light district. So if you plan on heading down there to short time a prostitute and get back quickly to the hotel, your option is to take the taxi or motor-bike.

And even though Soi Cowboy is the closest go go bar area to the Mermaid Hotel, bar girls might be reluctant to take a 10 minute walk to a hotel.. 

So if they do agree with going with you on short time you might expect them to ask for some taxi money. Obviously you shouldn't have the same issue if you're paying for them to be with you for the night.

Studio Room

The price for a room at the Mermaid is quite reasonable. A studio room cost about 1700THB per night with taxes. It's about 30 square meters so it's spacious for 2 guests. And since the hotel is still new everything from the floor to the linens are in good condition. Free Wi-Fi internet access in the rooms too.

Though the hotel is rated with 4 stars I can't really see it. There's a nice pool, no gym though but the hotel staff is friendly and professional. In my book, it's a 3 star hotel.

As of writing, there's a really good discount for the Mermaid Hotel. Book 3 nights and you pay for 2. So the price breaks down to about 1450THB ($49USD) per night including taxes and breakfast. And that's a sweet deal. I'm not sure how long this deal will last so you should check rates at Agoda.com.

Check current rates and read more guests reviews for Hotel Mermaid Bangkok.

For your reference here is the hotel's guest friendly confirmation:
Dear Mr. Jim Hunt,

Thank you for your interest in Hotel Mermaid Bangkok.
If our guests have a visitor, it is the hotel's policy to record and hold the identification card for the duration of the visit. Further, as the host of the visitor, we expect the guest to take full responsibility and ensure that other hotel guests are not disturbed in any way. An extra charge is presently not requested.

With best regards,

Where to Find Thai Ladyboys in Bangkok

Like them or not - ladyboys are a big part of Thailand's red light districts

Ladyboys, the so-called third gender of Thailand are in shopping centers, on the sois, the person sitting next to you on the BTS or behind you on line with groceries at the supermarket. In Thai they are called katoeys and they can be some of the most beautiful girls found in the city's red light districts.

After a decade in Thailand there seems to be an incremental growth of Thai transsexuals though the years. It probably has something to do with the fact that most plastic and sex reassignment surgeons in Thailand are some of the best in the world. And the fact that desirable ladyboys can make a crap load of money fast is enough of a reason to convince straight Thai men to switch teams.

And just to practice a bit of political correctness, not all ladyboys are working in the sex industry. Just as not all Thai girls are on the pay for play scene.

However, there is a large contingent of sex tourists in Thailand who travel halfway across the world just to meet and have sex with a ladyboy or two. Hence the large population of prostitutes with fake tits and dicks on Sukhumvit road and in certain go go bars.

For the Record...

I'm not gay. I've tried a lot of crazy things in my life. Done a lot of crazy shit. But I've never had sex with a ladyboy.

I do have a lot of friends who have though. I personally know a handful of post-ops who are good friends. And through them I've learned a lot about their lifestyle.

One of them even looked after me when I broke my leg. Since she was a nurse she was certainly qualified. Though she was rather persistent in giving me a sponge bath. To this day I still don't know if she was messing with me or if she was serious. No matter what, she's still a true friend to this day. But I love real women so I'm never going to switch teams.

A few of my friends are in a long and as I can tell satisfied relationship with ladyboys. And they did not meet their mates inside go go bars or any other part of Bangkok's adult oriented establishments. They met them in shopping malls or in mainstream bars like Q Bar, Spassos and Gullivers.

Gay and lesbianism is a widely accepted lifestyle in Thailand. And if you have an issue with that sort of living then you might have a hard time in the red light districts of Bangkok and Pattaya. Die hard homophobes will certainly have a hard time in all of the bars where ladyboys are frequently employed as waitresses and mamasans.

The Bars

Ladyboy inside Nana Plaza
When I first started making my rounds through Bangkok's red light districts a decade ago there were not a lot of exclusive ladyboy go go bars. And there were not a lot of them working on the streets either like you see today.

And today a few of the top earning bars in my opinion are the ones employing ladyboys. So where do you go to find ladyboy go go bars? There are 3 go go bar hot spots in Bangkok. Nana Plaza, Patpong and Soi Cowboy. And just to let you know the bar fines ladyboy bars are the same as genuine girlie bars, 500THB-600THB.

The price for sex however can be slightly higher in ladyboy bars,  1500THB to 2500THB short time; 3500THB and more for long time. Price is all negotiable of course.

Nana Plaza has 5 all ladyboy go go bars. Cascade, Obsessions and Casanova are the names of the best bars to go for to find post-ops and pre-ops. And I've been to all three of them with my friends and their ladyboy girlfriends. There's one thing that ladyboy sex workers in bars are infamous for and it's their tenacity and persistence. If it were not for my friends I might've had a hard time fending them off. That said, I still had an enjoyable time

In the Patpong red light district right on Patpong soi 1 head to King's Castle 3, an all ladyboy go go bar. King's Castle 1 and 2 has a mix of genuine bar girls and mostly post-ops.

Soi Cowboy has one transsexual bar serving customers name Cockatoo but I haven't had a chance to visit there as of yet.

For beer bars, the only place that I know of with an all ladyboy lineup is called Guess Bar. You can find it back in Nana between Sukhumvit soi 2 and 4, just right across from the Rajah Hotel. They charge a 500THB bar fine

Street Hookers

Ladyboy on Khao San Road
You can find a lot of ladyboy prostitutes on the lower numbered sois of Sukhumvit road. Particularly from soi 4 to soi 7. Most of the better looking ones are standing right outside of Nana Entertainment Plaza. If you like tall ladyboys with big fake tits that's where you want to go. Here is a map of where Thai hookers can be picked up in Nana red light district.

And sometimes I see a few between Suk soi 3 and soi 5 too so you might want to head over there for a look see. Then down to Suk soi 5 right by the Arab quarter there are a handful just sitting around or standing around in a group.

Now obviously there's no need to pay bar fines for street hookers. And ladyboys working the streets charge about the same as the genuine girls, a minimum of 1500THB for short time.

From what I see, a lot of the ladyboys working the streets of Sukhumvit are older. Some look without a doubt like a man but with long hair, a skirt and makeup.

One thing you really have to be careful while you're in the company of a ladyboy are your personal property. There are legitmate reports of men being robbed by light fingered trannies in their rooms. Which is one of the reasons why it's important to stay at a hotel with a guest friendly policy where hotel security or reception collects their Thai I.D. cards.

And there are Thai men pretending to be ladyboys just to get access to a customers room for the sole purpose of robbing them of all of their most important valuables. So do be extra careful with ladyboy prostitutes you meet on the sois. Hotels are aware of an increased possibility criminal mischief when their guests invite ladyboys to a room. So most mid to upper priced ranged hotels will usually put a special emphasis on the safety of their guests accompanied by one.

Escort Services

An Escort Website
I'm not a big fan of escort services. Mainly because I like to go out and meet ladies on the spot because they are so readily available in beer bars, massage parlors and of course go go bars.

Since the ladyboy niche is not as big, going through an online escort opens a wider door of options. Ladyboy For You is one escort agency I've been hearing a lot of good things through my friends who've used their services.

I've checked out their website and it seems to have what most guys looking for ladyboys want. Their services are not cheap. Most escorts services aren't. But that's because you might not find the same quality ladyboys as easily elsewhere.
