4 cheap Thai dating ideas with girls

Looking for a good place to take a Thai Girl on a date in Bangkok that’s cheap and won’t break the bank? Well you’ve came to the right place buddy, I will provide you with 4 cheap Thai dating ideas.

If you want to get laid in Thailand for free, read this article.

There is no point in taking a Thai girl or a Thai person in general somewhere fancy for dinner, they simply won’t appreciate it. Put a pizza in front of them, they will shower it in tomato sauce and Chinese five spices. Take them to a steakhouse for a nice sirloin, after making several complaints about how it’s red in the middle, she will pull out a bottle of fish sauce from her handbag and drown the kunt with it.

Take them anywhere that doesn’t have Thai food is a waste of time and your money. Almost all would prefer Thai food over western food, and with good reason, it tastes great. They only want to go these places because of the atmosphere and its “fancy”, not because they like the food. Don’t spend 1,000 baht or more on dating a Thai girl when you can do it for under 200 baht all in, with the same results.

Anyway, here are my 4 suggestions for cheap Thai dating venues in Bangkok, without coming across as cheap and broke, as many are.

Take a Thai girl for Street food

The key here is how you sell it, don’t just say “let’s grab some MSG rice and chicken from Somcahi down the road”. You tell them how you love Thai culture so much, the food is great and you adore the idea of being able to eat on the street and watch the world go by. Say that you’d rather give your “hard earned” money to the local Thais than these big corporate fat cats who don’t care about the man. This won’t cost you more than 200 baht if you do it right.

Pro tip – Bring your own water and save 10 baht on ordering drinks.

Total cost: 150~ baht

Window shopping at the mall

Bangkok has a ton of malls, and their all air-conditioned, you can kill a few hours walking into different stores and check out other hot Thai women as you’re on your date. Every mall has a food court option too, so if she gets hungry, don’t opt for the a la carte option at the Japanese or Korean place, take her to the food court for some som tam and sticky rice.

Total cost: 0-200 baht

Muay Thai show in MBK

Every Wednesday at MBK you can watch a free Muay Thai show, from 6pm until 9pm or something like that. Its outdoor so you can just go and watch for free, a lot better value than going one of the stadiums who over charge westerners at 1,000 baht a pop. If she’s a real keeper, head to the MacDonalds inside the mall and treat her to a 9 baht ice-cream.

Total cost : 9 baht (if she’s worth it)

Cheap date at the movies

This is probably the best cheap date with Thai girls in Bangkok option. You win because its only 100 baht a ticket on selected nights, and you win again because you don’t have to listen to their shit for the next two hours. It’s not like they will have anything interesting to say anyway, it’s like pulling teeth with some of them when you’re trying to get a conversation going. Check out Siam Scala cinema who offer 100 baht tickets everyday, or visit your local cinema on Wednesday for discounted tickets.

Pro tip – Bring your own food from the 7-11 to save on food cost inside.

Total cost: 200-350 baht (including food)

There’s many places to pick from when you need a cheap Thai dating idea, I’ve just gone and listed three of my recommendations that you can try. With more and more people moving to Thailand because their home country sucks, you don’t want to deplete all your funds straight on Nok and Noi. *** Please note that some of this blog post was written for comic effect, don’t get your knickers in a bunch, the date ideas are still valid and great however ***

    Movie was the ONLY worth while idea in your list!!!
    I’ve never heard such rubbish about Thai Girls!!
    it definitely reflects the bar girls that you were ‘paying for’ while you were here!!
    if they have never been out of their hometown or the bar they work in, then yes,, street food and cheap thai food.
    but if you ever looked further than the prostitute bars, then you will find that MOST thai girls are excited to eat at any kind of restaurant.. and yes it does cost more than 200 baht for a meal !!!
    really: your suggestions will set many people on the WRONG TRACK.

      Hi James,

      Don’t take this the wrong way but you sound like a white knight, the post was obviously a joke, and all the ideas I’ve suggested were legit. Taking a girl to a Muay Thai show, the shopping mall or street food are all great dating options at affordable prices.

      You mention that “bar girls” might like this, when in fact they are quite the opposite. Their goal is to get as much money out of you as possible, I would assume if you try this on a bar girl, chances are she won’t want to see you again. I also stated that Thai girls love the concept of eating at fancy places but don’t care too much for the actual food. A Thai girl would rather eat Thai food than western food, the same applies for most westerners too.

    How long have you lived in Thailand James? I take many dates to eat street food/food court and to Siam Mall, what’s wrong with that. All the suggestions are totally standard options for cheap dates.

    In the book Private Dancer the author talked about how the more you spend on a Thai girl, the more they hate you, and I think he was onto something.

    Lol let that beta boy spend a fortune on his dates.
    Good suggestions and I totally agree, they love their Thai food, but they LOVE taking photos and Instagram posting the 300-500 baht Japan,Korean,pizza even more.

    Bowling is also good (if you have a promotion ticket) bowling for 2 hours for 100-150 baht isn’t too bad at all.

    Cheap guys, come along with cheap girls. Unbelievable, they are so suit with each other.

      What’s wrong with not wanting to spend too much? A date is not about the location but the person you’re with. You sound like somebody I wouldn’t want to date.

    One of my favourite places used to be the downstairs food court at Central Lat Prao, because I used to live a stones throw from it, decent prices and a variety of good stuff cooked fresh. 300 Baht usually covers two good meals. Another place in Lat Prao was a bar/diner called ‘Pathe’ which is adorned with record sleeves and memorabillia on the walls, and the guy plays his vinyl record collection for all to hear. Good atmosphere and nicely priced, most Thai chicks I brought here liked it a lot!
    If you’re in Lat Prao chances are you’ve seen this place or even been there!
    It’s across the footbridge from Central, not far from that Union mall

      Yeah Lad pro is call, just make sure she doesnt take you up to the 3rd/4th floor where dining can become a bit expensive! Lad prao soi 1 is great too I think.
