Bangkok prostitution is high and seems to be increasing each year. When you have any plans of travelling to Thailand or Bangkok in particular, this will be your beginner’s guide to Bangkok prostitution with tips, advice and interactive maps.
Foreign men seem to have the best of both worlds when in Bangkok. Getting the service of a Bangkok prostitute only costs a couple of beer, bar fine and room. After having sex, you say your good byes and that’s it. They can move on to the next petite, slender brown-skinned woman the following day.
Bangkok has been the number 1 sex tourist destination because while it is illegal it is widely accepted or tolerated by society to decrease the threat of rape and threat to family stability. They have this idea that it is good for their husband to engage in cheap sex rather than taking a mistress or younger wife.
Many of these women who have come to Bangkok as prostitutes are from provinces and poor villages in Thailand.
Due to poverty these women drove themselves to become commercial sex workers. So do not expect that they are really good looking.
I guess I am just being subjective. Foreign men like them because these women are not clingy or are not looking for any emotional attachment. They know how to please you and give you a good time.
For farangs, Bangkok seems to be a place where you can have total anonymity and sexual freedom at the same time. If you would like to try something new, then having sex with a Bangkok prostitute would be the best option for you.
For beginners, it is not too difficult to locate the following places where you can find Bangkok prostitutes.
Of course, you can find them from go go bars. There are also places where you can find these women apart from bars and red light districts. There are also freelancers or street hookers lounging around heavily traveled streets by tourists. This starts from Sukhumvit Soi 4 right off Nana Entertainment Plaza (where a lot of go go bars are located) and long towards Asoke Road by Soi Cowboy.
Another place where you can find Bangkok prostitutes is soapy massage parlors. This is not the traditional Thai massage and this is a whole lot of fun massage.
From the word itself, it involves you and a woman in a soapy tub and the woman giving you a good, sensual massage with a happy ending. You will be able to choose women off a large fishbowl and the price depends on which fishbowl they are contained. Most of these soapies are located in Huay Kwang District.
Here’s a map of Sukhumvit with areas of high prostitution:
You can be able to have a good time when having a soapy massage as long as you find the right girl.
Advantage to it is that you don’t have to pay bar fines or drinks. Everything is well provided for even condoms, which I believe is money well spent. Costs of soapy massage vary and ranges from 800 baht to 1,500 baht depending on the girl’s look.
But do not expect a decent looking Bangkok prostitute and expect a great experience. I am not saying that sex is bad.
Bangkok prostitutes are doing this for the money and not for anything else. The quicker they are finished, the more clients they will get for the night.
You can also find part time freelance Bangkok prostitutes in upscale bars. These women are not working as a full time hooker and hold a day job or a university student. They are likely to sideline to earn money to buy expensive bags or gadgets.
During the daytime or high noon, Bangkok prostitution is very much on the rise. There are also prostitutes walking around malls such as Siam Paragon or MBK Mall.
They are often seen alone or with a group of friends having coffee, etc. But don’t be too excited – be sure that you can be able to identify if that girl is a prostitute or not.
Otherwise, you will just embarrass yourself and insult the woman if in case they are not hookers. My advice, avoid malls and stick to the map shown in this post.
Different types of Thai Prostitutes and Costs
Go Go Girls – these are Bangkok prostitutes that you can pick up from go go bars. Buy them a drink or two, pay for the bar fine and you can have them for a couple of hours. Costs between 2,000 to 5,000 baht depending how much time you would like to spend with her.
Thai Bar Girls – they are the same as with go go girl, but without the dancing. They are cheaper than go go girls and costs about 1,000 to 3,000 baht depending on the time.
Freelance Girls – costs about 500 to 2,000 baht depending on the time and it could be more expensive if you meet her at an upscale bar.
Street Hookers – costs about 500 to 1,000 baht depending on the hours and 300 to 400 baht for the hotel room.
Soapy Massage/ Massage Girls – if you want to opt for their additional service that would be around 300 to 500 baht for a handjob, 500 to 1,000 for a blowjob and 1, 000 to 2,000 baht for sex.
Escort Girls – Bangkok escorts are usually convenient as you can get them online. Going rate is usually between 5,000 to 12,000 baht again depending on the hours. Clubs – Several clubs are rife with Bangkok prostitution. Spicy, Insanity, Levels and Climax are just but a few. Look for afterhour clubs or read my Bangkok nightlife guide to learn more about these clubs.
How To Tell If A Woman Is A Prostitute or Not?
There are a lot of women in Bangkok but how can you be able to tell if they are a hooker or not? It is simple. Bangkok prostitutes usually wear heavy and detailed make up even during the day time, they wear skimpy shorts and revealing tops combined with push up bras to enhance their breasts.
Regular Bangkok girls are conservative. But you would have to make sure that she is indeed a prostitute otherwise you are just looking for a big trouble.
Bangkok’s Red Light Districts
To sum it up, there are 3 infamous places for Bangkok prostitution. These are Nana, Patpong and Soi Cowboy.
Nana is the largest among the three. It offers a wide range of entertainment for men.
There are hookers and ladyboy hookers at the entrance of Nana Entertainment Plaza so you can be able to find one even just before you step into one of the go go bars. You can find a lot of women and ladyboy hookers both working as full time or as a freelancer.
Patpong is another red light district which is famous for its ping pong shows. For first timers, you should beware of scams and aggressive prostitutes. There are also reported or claims of theft. If you know how to go around it, then there is no reason why you can’t have a good time.
Soi Cowboy isn’t as large as the other two red light districts. But it is becoming more popular because of up and coming bars such as Baccara and Shark Bar.
If you are looking for ladyboy prostitutes, then this place is a definite go-to.
Red light districts are not the only place where you can find Bangkok prostitutes or hookers. There are several places aside from Nana, Patpong or Soi Cowboy.
Essential Tips for First Timers
You might think that Bangkok is paradise. To tell you the truth, it really is. But there is still a lot of negative side to this. You should be able to know how to play the game and never fall in love.
There are a lot of rules that you should go by so that you can make the most out of your sexcapade.
If you are worried of the budget, you can pay for full sex for about 1,500 baht. This is applicable for freelance Bangkok prostitutes which you can find on Sukhumvit Road. If you pick a girl up from go go bars, you would have to pay for the bar fine which costs about 500 baht and drinks but they are optional.
You can still be able to bargain but don’t be disappointed if they don’t accept your price proposal. Remember that they are there to work and earn as much money as they can in a short amount of period.
Finding Bangkok Prostitutes Online
Aside from picking up prostitutes from bars, Bangko discos or massage parlors you can also find them online. There are several dating sites that you can browse through if you would like to hang out with a prostitute.
Websites such as Thai Friendly is good, most of the girls are normal girls, but a few will be looking for clients and they are very easy to spot, as they will have revealing pictures or even mention it in their profile.
Hookers and Bangkok prostitution use technology to market themselves. This is also a good tool for them to get more customers or clients. You can be able to identify if they are a hooker by their profile. They are easy to recognize with their profiles photos and if they show taglines such as “Looking for a Boyfriend,” or “Looking for a Good Time.”
