Bangkok Sex Guide advises where to find sex, working girls, prostitution, street hookers, brothels, red-light districts, prostitutes, ladyboys, erotic massage parlors, strip clubs and escorts in Bangkok, Thailand.
Bangkok is the capital of Thailand and, with a population of over eleven million inhabitants, by far its largest city. One of Bangkok’s more obvious attractions is its prostitutes. Bangkok may have plenty of fine tourist attractions, excellent shopping, restaurants and the like, but many tourists come just for the hookers, and they are seldom disappointed. More than 10,000 girls are reckoned to be working the trade in Bangkok, and large numbers of them are easy to pick up in bars in some tourist areas.

Sex Scene and Prostitution
Prostitution is illegal in Thailand, although in practice it is tolerated and partly regulated. Prostitution is practiced openly throughout the country. Local officials with commercial interests in prostitution often protect the practice.
Finding sex from prostitutes in Bangkok is easy, it's not embarrassing or dangerous. Visiting any one of the areas below you will discover a carefree party atmosphere where you can dance, sing (karaoke), drink, eat and meet girls as if you were in your hometown disco.
Girls might approach you, but you can sit alone and choose or move on at will. It’s a good idea to get to know the prostitutes; to be sure you enjoy the company of the one you eventually take home. The hookers in Bangkok will happily party with you, if you buy them drinks (slightly more expensive as they include a commission for the girl). When you are ready to take one of the prostitutes home, you will have to pay a bar fine, which is from 300 - 600 baht depending on the establishment. If you’ve behaved badly, though, the girl might turn down your bar fine.
Once your bill is settled the two of you are free to leave. From there it’s entirely up to you - a disco, restaurant, your hotel room, a short-time hotel room - but you should first agree a fee with the hooker (before the bar fine). How much depends on; how much you want her, how beautiful she thinks she is, how busy/slow it is, and whether you want her for ‘short time’ or all night sex. Your looks may also make a difference on price for sex and availability, but definitely there are more factors to take in consideration.

Bangkok Red Light Districts
Sex entertainment and red light districts of Bangkok:
- Check out the latest WikiSexGuide's Soi Cowboy video from April 2014!
- Patpong — Patpong is internationally known as a red-light district at the heart of Bangkok's sex industry.
- Check out the latest WikiSexGuide's Patpong video from April 2014!
- Nana Plaza — Nana Plaza is a 3 storey red-light district in Bangkok, which is rumored to be the largest sex complex in the world.
- Khaosan Road — Khaosan Road is a place mostly for low budget travelers in Bangkok.
Bangkok prostitutes are better known as bar girls, and they are lots of fun and easy to find. These hookers in Bangkok are restricted to certain areas where prostitution is tolerated - red light districts, but without the red lights. In Thailand, including Bangkok, prostitutes don’t crawl curb sides or display themselves in cubicles under red lights. You simply relax in one of the bars full of these beauties and take one back to your hotel room.
These bar girls are sexy, speak some English and like a bit of fun. It’s hard to think of them as prostitutes when in Bangkok; they feel more like a holiday romance or discreet companion and will spend all evening with you, or even the week if you agree on a fee. They have all the soft-hearted, easy-going attributes of Thais, but they are in it for the money and can easily turn sour if you are not generous.
So is it possible to get charged cheaper for sex with prostitutes in Bangkok? Yes, anything is possible but that's just the easy answer. Because there are quite a few factors that will increase your chances for getting lower rates for sex.
First off it's harder to get cheaper price for short time and that's especially true for younger attractive girls. Better looking girls will hold firm on at least 1500THB for the hour. So if you're looking for a 500THB attractive whore in Sukhumvit you're out of luck.
Though if 500THB is all you have there are a few places in Sukhumvit between Nana Plaza and Soi Cowboy where you hunt for cheap sex. The first is the Bus Stop (see map below) area. There are not a lot of cheap hookers there today after the African street walkers have moved in but you'll find a handful of Thai ladies willing to go short time for cheap sex in Bangkok. Walk towards Thermae Bar and you'll find more just standing around or sitting by street side bars.
Bangkok Street Hookers
Streetwalkers stand on the street corners. In front of hotels. Hang out in bars, indoors and outdoors. Thai freelancers are found close to all of the red light districts in Bangkok. But most are available around the Nana red light districts and that's where to focus on.
Thai freelancers represent a good percentage of sex workers in the industry. They also represent a good value for budget travelers.
With a Thai freelancer you never worry about buying drinks for yourself or a bar girl and Thai freelancers charge at least 500THB to 1000THB less than their go go bar girl counterparts for sex. The savings can be considerable especially since you won't have to pay bar fines, which can really add up if you want a companion to stay with you for a longer period.
Street hookers for locals are found in Chinatown, on two streets leading to Wongwian 22 square: Thanon Maitri Chit and especially Thanon Mit Phan. The girls there are lower choice, usually far from being as beautiful as those who work in touristy areas. Some are even old and ugly. They usually don't speak English. They pick up customers from the street and bring them to a nearby hotel or brothel. There, in seedy rooms, 400-500 baths entitles you for a blow job and a quick fuck. Forget about body-bodies and other refined tricks. Yet, if you're lucky and nice with the girl, you can find a pearl, that will make her best to please you.
Go Go Bars
Most of the Go go bars in Bangkok are located at Nana Plaza, Soi Cowboy and Patpong. There are lots of different Gogobars in Bangkok to find company. The bar fee is between 300 - 600 bath. Price for sex in Bangkok is 800 -1500THB depending what you want and your negotiation skills.

Bangkok Night Clubs of Freelancer Escorts
Go go bars and most establishments where guys can pick up Thai prostitutes must close by 2am by law. So what happens if you're shit out of luck in finding a Thai girl to keep you company until the sun comes up? That has happened to me a lot of times too.
You're best option is to head to an after hours club or bar. There are quite a handful spread throughout the city where you can find mostly Thai freelancers. These late hour clubs are perfect for guys who don't want to spend money on bar fines that go go bars charge.
Soi 11 is an area that is worth to while in Bangkok. Soi 11 is where the Sukhumvit nightclubs reside, like the bed supper club and climax disco under the Ambassador hotel. Now these clubs apparently attract some of Bangkok's best freelancers and Moonlighters although they don't come cheap. You can try some of Bangkok's discos before – the CM2 part of the Novotel hotel in Silom square to be precise and find it all a little too ostentatious for a monger.
- Nana Liquid Disco, Nana Entertainment Plaza, Soi 4
- Lucifer Disko, Patpong, Bar Fine 300 Baht, Hours: 8:00PM - 2:00AM
- Climax disco under the Ambassador hotel, Easy to pick up freelancer girl in Bangkok

- Patpong soi 3 has some expensive karaoke bars and then let in only Japanese and Korean men.
Bangkok Fetish Clubs (Pingpong Shows)
Depending on the time and the place, shows are performed once every 30 minutes or so but you might have to wait a while if the management feels the imminent presence of the law. Sometimes the show might not happen at all, but that is quite unusual.
The Ping Pong Show: A classic... A show performed by a naked lady, usually more mature than and not as sexy as the dancers. The show not only involves ping pong balls, but also all kinds of other interesting accessories such as goldfish, birds, unopened beer bottles, balloons and even darts to name but a few. If you visit different Go-Go bars, you might see the same lady again as they seem to rotate as these kind of skills are not acquired overnight!
'The Bath Show': This will probably involve you, so don't be shy, nothing really seriously embarrassing happens… but stay in the background if you are ‘going commando’ or not wearing underpants. If one of your friends is selected, you will be disappointed that photos are not allowed.
Body painting in black light: the artistic moment of the show. It’s actually quite impressive considering than an artist will paint complicated floral patterns on a girl's body in three minutes of almost total darkness.
Pingpong shows are located in Patpong area. There are lots of them at Patpong soi 1. Remember to ask price of drinks and show before entering, normally you pay only a drink 100-150 baht and it includes everything.
Here are some fetish clubs in Bangkok:
- Bar Bar, Soi 2, Patpong
- Demonia Bondage Club, Tel:022589963. Soi 33 Sukhumvit, 12/34 Sukhumvit Road. http://www.demoniabangkok.com/

Bangkok Ladyboys and Transsexual
Unlike formal ladyboy shows, ladyboy bars are venues where socializing takes precedence over performing. Ladyboy bars are a mixed bag, where being hustled for a drink is all part of the good-natured fun. If you're easily shocked or offended, we'd recommend a formal ladyboy show instead. Looking for a hot time and a good story? Ok, go to a ladyboy bar, and prepared for anything! There are too many lady boy bars in Bangkok to count, but the following are among the most notable. See under Gogo bars.
There are thousands of ladyboys living in Bangkok.
Bangkok Ladyboy Go Go Bars
"Casannova" is standard size Gogo bar. Around 10-12 "ladies" and they can be a bit pushy. This place is not a place for first timer or curious adventurer. Price scheme: Lady(boy)Drink 150 bath, BF (bar fee) 600 bath, ST(short time) room 300 bath and ST(sexual treatment) 1500. Casanova Gogo bar is located on the second floor of Nana Plaza, in the corner, on the left hand side.
"King's 3" has a central stage and seats on side. No specific theme there. 20 to 30 ladyboys take a turn on the stage or hang around with clients. There is a higher promotion of ladyboys that have had cut operation and most of them look feminine than in other LB bars. A good place for first LB experience. As for every LB bar, there are short time rooms. Bar fine cost 500 baht, the room 300, and the LB 1500-2000bath for short time. Location: Patpong 1 Silom & Sathorn area.
Bangkok Ladyboy Massage Parlors
In almost half of the massage parlors in Bangkok you can find at least one ladyboy. They are willing to do happy ending massage if you give them some tip (300 - 500 bath).
Here are some ladyboy massage parlors:
- Thai Prime Massage, Silom Rd. Soi 6
Bangkok Ladyboy Street Action
There are lots of freelance ladyboys around Bangkok. The best and most crowded place to find a ladyboy is outside of Nana Plaza Entertainment area. You can also walk around Sukhumvit between soi 4 to soi 22. You can see a lot of ladyboys on the streets in late night after bars closes and they come to you. There are also some at Khaosan Road, but they appear in late nights. The average price for a ladyboy prostitute from the street is between 400-1500 baht. It depends how good you negotiate. Be always aware because its common that they try to steal something or find up reasons to get more money after sex.
Bangkok Gay Scene

Sexual Services for Women in Bangkok
If you are open to local men, your chances of dating are not much worse than in other countries. To be fair: It’s true that a western woman will have it a bit more difficult than her western counterpart. Thai guys don’t throw yourself at you – and those that do are usually no good. But there is definitely an interest and curiosity from the side of Thai men that is often challenged by shyness and a lack of English skills. Plus many Thai men approach women in a very subtle way. Maybe you’ve been approached and didn’t even notice it. Learning the language and Thai culture will make your live easier (again: Duh! It’s common sense!).
Stay Safe in Bangkok
Bangkok is relatively safe place to stay. All kind of sexual transmitted diseases can be found in Bangkok. Be aware of ladyboys, they try to steal valuables from tourists and customer. Just use common sense.
There are pros and cons when it comes to taking a Thai freelancer prostitute back to your room:
- You will not know if your companion has been checked for sexually transmitted diseases.
- There's more of a personal security risk. She could drug you and rob you of anything that's not nailed down. This may not happen if the hotel you are staying in requires sex workers to leave their I.D. cards with security. But still, be careful.
- Possibility of too young girls. You don't want any problems with the police do you?
- You don't have to pay a bar fine so you'll save 500 Baht - 600 Baht.
- Many speak a decent amount of the English language.
- You don't have to pay for bar drinks which will save you another few hundred Baht.
- Drinking alcohol on the streets is legal (except religious observances). So you can buy a beer for cheap at a 7-Eleven and stand around and check out the local talent absolutely free.
Sleeping in Bangkok
In Bangkok almost every hotel accepts to bring company to hotel room. Not a big deal. Sometimes hotels can ask for some extra cash, so you can ask before booking the room to be sure.
There are also options for a short time room where you can bring company. All the prostitutes know the closest short time rooms around. Prices between 150-300 bath.
