As with just about any tourist destination in Thailand, Koh Chang has not escaped the clutch of bar girls despite its laidback persona. In fact, many of the beaches on the island have Koh Chang bar girls and prostitutes, although the only escorts you’ll see here will be those with punters visiting from Bangkok.
You will find the best action of bar girls and prostitutes on the west side of Koh Chang where the best beaches and majority of the resorts are. White Sand is the main beach and resort town and easily has the biggest selection. The main beer bar area here is known as ‘Little Pattaya’; a small complex at the southern end of the beach. It’s about opposite the Chon Buri Resort.
Klong Prao and Lonely Beach also have beer bars, as does the relaxed Kai Bea Beach. Unfortunately, the quality of Koh Chang bar girls, prostitutes and escorts is quite low compared with Pattaya and it is pretty hard going to get yourself a belle for the night. Your best chance is to steam in there early before the good ones get taken.
There are short-time hotels in White Sand Beach behind the bars, meaning you can take a girl out of the bar for an hour or two and check into the hotel. Although only about 500-1,000 baht for short-time, you also have to pay the ‘bar fine’ (about 300 baht) and the hotel (around 200 baht). So together with some beers and lady drinks, you could be looking at 3,000 baht just for short-time. Kai Bea Beach also has some short-time guesthouses and a small group of bars.
Girls will also go with you for the night, but they will want 1,000-2,000 baht, though you can get them down to 1,000 baht with a bit of work. In addition, freelance prostitutes at the beach bar parties can be had cheaper again, perhaps as low as 500 baht, while others may even waive the fee altogether for a good time.
Lonely Beach is best for bar girls and prostitutes when full moon is on as they hold a party here on the beach, as they do with Koh Pha Ngan. You can easily get yourself a freelancer on these nights, but will generally have to pay around 1,000 baht and up for all night action.
How it works
The best bet is to check out the girlie bars in White Sand Beach, where it is liveliest and most of the action is. Sit down at a bar that looks half decent and wait for the girls to start talking.
They’ll be right at you and you anyway. They’ll ask for a drink and although you don’t need to buy any, it relaxes them more and will give them an excuse to sit by you. These drinks cost more than the standard one but just think of this as paying for their time. To take a girl out of the bar (she’ll suggest to you before you do), simply pay the bar fine and head for the short-time hotel, or your hotel if all night.
Be sure to ask her fee before paying the bar fine. Koh Chang bar girls are pretty chilled and into having a good time, but it’s also worthwhile checking what she will and won’t do beforehand, too, if you’re into kinky stuff.
