Being more a family holiday destination, the resort is much more laidback than the likes of Pattaya and Bangkok and it shows in the fewer Hua Hin bar girls and prostitutes. There are of course beer bars, but they are limited to a part of the town and only number a few dozen.
Seasoned whoremongers will find Hua Hin pretty lame as the women here are, generally, not on par with those in Bangkok, Pattaya, Phuket, or Samui. They are typically an older age group looking for any type of customer, but especially retirees who make Hua Hin their own. There are also some young beauties, but these tend to be the exception and you will spot many bar girls & prostitutes in their 40s.
That said, the girls in Hua Hin are a lot less predatory even though many of them have ended up here from these other places. Although the quality of the bar girls & prostitutes is lower in Hua Hin, expect to pay a similar amount (or less) as in Pattaya; half the price of Bangkok. This is around 1,000 short-time and 2,000 all night, though less if you know what you’re doing.
Beer bars in Hua Hin
Soi Bintabaht has the pick of the beer bars in Hua Hin. It’s a 200-metre long street that starts opposite the Hilton Hotel in the centre of the resort. There is also another soi going off here, plus the roads at either end of Bintabaht also have beer bars; in particular Poon Suk.
The best thing is, all dirty areas are within easy walking distance of one another so you can do the rounds and pick out the ones you like. In all, there are around 40 beer bars along these roads and sois and they are of the open-air type – open to the street, that is. You can simply cruise past and see which one takes your fancy. There are bar girls sat outside each of them calling punters in, with Poon Suk Road and Bintabaht pushier than others.
Selakam Road, farther north, is also good for Hua Hin bar girls & prostitutes and is a bit more upmarket and laid-back. There are some cool girlie bars along here as well as good pubs like the Johnnie Walkers Sports & Music Bar. The bottom end of Naret Damri Road and the adjoining Hua Hin Bazaar also has a lot of action, linking through to Damnoen Kasam, which runs on down to the beach.
The Hilton has a disco on the ground floor right opposite Soi Bintabaht and is popular later on, though expensive. A lot of prostitutes get in here after bars close around midnight. They are easy to tell as they’ll be the ones chatting up the guys.
Bar girls in Hua Hin – how it works
It’s all pretty easy to snag a Hua Hin bar girl for the night. Although not as pushy as Pattaya, they will call you into the bar, or physically drag you in if you loiter outside! Sit with them, play bar games or pool, whatever you like. The subject of going back to your hotel and sex will come up, guaranteed. Simply ask how much at this point. They’ll usually start with 1,000 baht ‘short-time’ (an hour or two) and 1,500 or 2,000 all night, but they can be had cheaper.
Punters also need to pay a ‘bar fine’ to get the girls out of the bar. This is non-negotiable and is usually 300 baht. You pay this whether short-time or all night. Always make sure you get her price before paying the bar fine, and especially don’t wait until morning before you know what she wants as you could be in for a nasty surprise.
As far as freelancer prostitutes go, they loiter near the main roads of these bar areas as well as in the Hilton disco and the Star Planet Nightclub later on. The beauty of freelancers is you don’t have to pay a bar fine or buy drinks as you would with Hua Hin bar girls & prostitutes and you can even get these girls down to 500 baht. Just beware of the risks with picking up freelancers and always get your hotel reception to see their ID card.
