Sex prices and bar fines in Thailand are among the lowest in the world of prostitution. Not only that, the sex scene and nightlife is very well established here and the top resorts and capital city are among the best places in the world for those looking for a bit of guaranteed nooky.
Forget paying through the nose for dirty sex down a back-alley with an uninterested old hag in Europe or the States, prostitutes in Thailand are generally young, pretty, have good bodies and like to have fun. They’re not all like that, but you can generally always find a diamond amid the rough in any bar. Sometimes, as is the case with Bangkok, Phuket and Pattaya, you will have trouble keeping your eyes focused on one girl as there’ll be talent whichever way you look.
The sex is priced at ‘short time’ and all night. Short-time refers to an hour or two of sex either at your hotel or onsite at the bar and all prostitutes will quote this system, whether bar girls, go go girls, escorts or freelancers. You have both options with all of these groups, while massage parlours are typically short-time only as the deed is done onsite.
That’s where the similarity ends as Thailand sex prices vary from place to place, with Bangkok and Phuket being the most expensive and Pattaya and lesser visited destinations better value. You get what you pay for, though, and Bangkok has some of the sultriest women in the country.
Bangkok sex prices
Bangkok freelance prostitutes are around 1,000 baht for short time and 1,000 baht and up for all night, though you can sometimes negotiate 500 baht short-time. Beer bar prices are at least 1,000 baht for short time, and especially in the main red light districts of Patpong, Nana Plaza and Soi Cowboy. Expect to pay 2,000 baht short time for Bangkok go go girls and 2,500-3,000 baht and up for all night. The top go gos may want 4,000 or 5,000 baht. Escorts start at 4,000 baht for short time, yet the norm is 6,000 baht.
Bar fines in Bangkok can be anywhere from 300 to 600 baht, with Patpong, Nana Plaza and Soi Cowboy all being around 500-600 baht. The lady drinks in these areas will start at around 150 baht for a very watered down whisky and coke to around 200 baht or more. This game in Bangkok is certainly not as cheap as it used to be and you can figure on spending in the region of 4,000 baht at a beer bar for a night out, including drinks for you and the girl and the bar fine.
Phuket sex prices
Phuket is the other main sex haven in Thailand, with Patong having the bulk of the action along Bangla Road in the centre of the beach resort town.
Bar girls will go with you for 1,000-1,500 baht for short time and 1,500-3,000 all night. You’ll struggle to get under 1,000 baht for short time in Bangla, but other areas in Patong is possible, as well as in Karon and Kata.
Phuket go go girls are 1,500-2,000 for short-time and 3-4,000 baht all night for the beauties, while escorts are on par with Bangkok and cost much more than the talent in beer bars.
Pattaya sex prices
Pattaya is the best deal in Thailand for sex as it has a huge amount of girls to choose from, as with Bangkok, but is at least half the price of the capital. Prices are typically 1,000 baht for short time and 1,500 and up for all night for bar girls, but you can still get girls here for 500 baht short time and 1,000 baht all night. Go go girls are roughly double.
The bar fine price in Pattaya is also cheaper, with many places charging just 300 baht to release the girl. However, this rises to about 500 baht for the best go go bars and even 1,000 baht over Christmas time when it’s really busy in Pattaya. The escorts are a lot cheaper in Pattaya also, from 2,000 baht for 90 minutes, while massage parlours are similarly priced to Bangkok.
Sex prices for other areas
Koh Samui also has a very visible sex scene in Chaweng and Lamai and is similarly priced to Phuket, as it is Krabi. Chiang Mai is more inline with Pattaya prices (see Loi Kroh Road), as are Koh Chang’s ‘Little Pattaya’ and Hua Hin’s Soi Bintabaht. The less visible sex scenes of Kanchanaburi and Hat Yai are among the cheapest in Thailand for sex and bar fines (for bar girls).
