What it costs to hire Thai bar girls for a little “adult fun” in Pattaya, and the price you might pay for having sex with Thai bar girls in Pattaya, Bangkok, Phuket, or any place with a “bar girl scene” in Thailand depends on a few variable factors, formalities, and potential dangers of having sex with Thai bar girls.
Some variable factors include how sexy and popular girls are, whether they are bar girls or freelance girls, different types of bars and nightlife venues, for sex only, travel, or a Thai girlfriend experience.
Some formalities that affect the price of picking up Thai bar girls in Thailand are “lady drinks” bought for girls, and “bar fines” paid before girls can leave the bar with a customer.
What are Bar Girls in Thailand?
Thai bar girls are girls, including hostesses and gogo dancers, employed to entertain male customers at girlie bars and adult nightlife venues in Pattaya and other popular “touristy” sex and nightlife destinations in Thailand.
Customers who pay a “bar fine” for the privilege can hire bar girls for “adult activities” outside (sometimes inside) the bar.
Freelance Pattaya Girls
The cheapest Pattaya girls, and easiest to meet by browsing Pattaya girls online. Where Pattaya girls that work freelance differ to bar girls is they are not employed to work in bars. So unless freelancers have an agreement with the bar, there are no bar fines and no hiked-up prices for lady drinks.
The best places to meet freelance girls in Pattaya are online, on Pattaya Beach Road (aka Coconut Bar), and in popular nightclubs and discos on Walking Street, such as Ibar—Insomnia, Lucifer, 808, and Candy Shop.
Best places to hook up with bar girls in Pattaya
- Agogo bars, predominantly on Walking Street and Soi LK Metro
- Beer bar complexes, in most Pattaya nightlife zones
- Shop-house style girlie bars, throughout Pattaya
- Gentleman’s clubs, very popular in the Soi Buakhao area
- Short time bars, throughout, most notably on Soi 6
After closing time for regular bars and gogo clubs in Pattaya, girls often try their luck picking up customers in discos and nightclubs on Walking Street.

NEXT – Terminology and formalities of picking up Thai bar girls in Pattaya:
What are Lady Drinks in Thailand?
Any drinks you buy for Thai bar girls employed at girlie bars in Thailand are called a “lady drink.” Girls earn commission on lady drinks bought for them by customers. At some bars in Pattaya, girls must reach a monthly quota of lady drink sales.
The problem with buying lady drinks for bar girls in Pattaya?
1. Some bar girls string you along, gladly accepting multiple drinks, despite having no intention of leaving with you.
2. At some bars in Pattaya, girls can be pushy when it comes to lady drinks, often asking for drinks before they have properly introduced themselves and drinking like a proverbial fish to boost their commission.
3. You might find that happy hour prices in Pattaya do not apply to lady drinks. If you’re not sure, ask.
What is a Bar Fine at Bars in Thailand?
Before customers take a Thai bar girl or hostess from a bar, they must pay a bar fine. The bar fine is compensation paid to the bar for loss of earnings due to the temporary absence of staff.
The bar fine is not payment for the girl; it is to release the girl from her responsibilities, to take her off-hire—so to say. During that time, whatever happens between a bar girl and her customer is their own business.
Additional to the bar fine, an agreed amount to the girl. As they say in Thailand, “no money, no honey.”
What is Long Time and Short Time with Girls in Thailand?
Long time is typically overnight. So, for example, a guy picks up a bar girl or freelancer during a night out. She stays with him overnight and leaves in the morning, or at whatever time was agreed.
Short time is when a customer hires a girl for an hour or two of “short time activity.” Typically, the girl will take her customer to a short-time room in the bar or to a nearby hotel that has short-time rooms.
There are long-time, and short-time prices for girls in Pattaya, and many Pattaya girlie bars also have different long-time and short-time bar fine prices.
- For example, the same girl at the same bar:
- Long time bar fine is 1000 baht, long time price for the girl is 2000 baht.
- Short time bar fine is 300–500 baht, short time price for the girl is 1000 baht.
What is a Mamasan in Thailand?
The Mamasan is the girls’ boss; she manages the girls employed at the bar, especially in gogo bars that employ many girls. She is also a matriarchal figure who sometimes liaises between customers and girls.
How to Pick Up Thai Bar Girls in Pattaya
These are the formalities of picking up Thai bar girls in Pattaya or any popular nightlife destination in Thailand and what to expect after entering and ordering a drink at a typical girlie bar in Pattaya.
Aside from the transaction, picking up bar girls (and freelancers) in Pattaya is like picking up “normal girls” back home, mostly, without fear of rejection.
What happens at many girlie bars, especially gogo bars in Pattaya, girls introduce themselves, or the Mamasan asks if you would like a lady to keep you company.
TIP – It’s perfectly okay to decline the company of a bar girl/hostess. Politely tell her NO, not now, or maybe later after a drink or two.
Getting to Know Each Other
It’s usual to buy “lady drinks” for Thai bar girls while you chat and get to know them better, see if they’re your type and if there’s any chemistry between you.
Things Pattaya Girls Say
Most Thai bar girls like to ask where you are staying and if it’s your first time in Thailand. But, for some of the more conniving—predatory bar girls in Pattaya, the real question is, are you a rich, gullible Pattaya newbie who might easily be deluded and separated from his cash.
As a rule, don’t tell bar girls you are wealthy or when you will be returning home.
Pattaya Girl Lies
Many Pattaya bar girls have Thai husbands, kids, foreign boyfriends, or foreign ex-husbands. They might be new to the Pattaya bar scene or not. Some are looking for foreign husbands, and some love the party lifestyle. Some girls are there to make money fast and get out, others just to put food on the table.
Regardless of their current or past marital status, background, or history working in bars, it makes good business sense for bar girls to tell a few white lies or be economical with the truth.
Common lies that “some” bar girls tell include:
- It’s my first day/week working in Pattaya
- I don’t usually go with customers
- I don’t have a boyfriend
- I don’t like Thai men
Likewise, regardless of your looks and age, so long as you have money in your pocket, in Pattaya, you will always be a handsome man.
Playing Games with Pattaya Girls
The real purpose of playing games like Connect 4 (photo above) with bar girls is not to connect four but to connect with each other.
The Pattaya Girls Game
Pattaya bar girls love to play for money. You could say it’s symbolic of the way it works with Pattaya girls. And knowing the rules of the Pattaya girls’ game is the secret to having fun with girls in Pattaya.
Paying the Bar Fine
If there’s some chemistry, and the girl has not already asked if you would like to “bar fine” her, it’s okay to ask if you can “bar fine” her or ask if she would like to go with you.
But first, you should negotiate the girl’s price and the arrangement details, including how long she stays. Then, pay the bar fine along with the drinks bill when you are ready to leave.
Haggling with Pattaya Girls
It’s not worth haggling over small amounts, and it can spoil the mood. But if they sense you are new to Pattaya, girls will almost certainly quote a price much higher than the going rate. Never insult girls by implying they are not worth it. Offer them the going rate, and take it from there.
After the Bar Fine
If you “bar fined” a girl for a “long time” and the night is still young, what you do next is up to you and the girl. If there’s chemistry between you, it’s like what happens between any two consenting adults who got together for a little fun and casual sex. Or, you could say it’s like going on a first date, a girlfriend experience.
The Walk of Shame
TIP – When you arrive back at the hotel, most hotels will insist that your guest (aka joiner) reports to the front desk, where they will keep a copy of her ID card. Also, according to their joiner policy, hotels require female joiners to be a minimum age, anywhere between 18 and 21.
Paying Bar Girls
Some bar girls will ask for money upfront. They may offer you a reason to hand over the money, and soon after, they invent a reason to leave or develop a sudden headache.
When it comes to paying bar girls, think of it as paying them to leave. You pay, she leaves, no commitments, it’s finished. If a girl asks if you would like to see her again, tell her no, and that you are a butterfly.
What does it mean to be a butterfly in Pattaya? It means, just like a butterfly briefly visits many flowers, you will be briefly visiting many different girls.
Should you give bar girls a tip? It’s a nice gesture, a show of appreciation. Some girls will also ask for money for a taxi and to grab breakfast on the way home.
Sick Buffalo Syndrome
Thai bar girls are very perceptive. They can soon determine if a man is susceptible to their charms or not. If you happen to be kind-hearted and caring, girls might tell you a sob story in the hope of squeezing a little extra money out of you.
The story might be that they don’t have enough money to pay the electric bill, or they need to buy medicine for dad’s sick buffalo. Such sob stories invented by Thai bar girls are known as “sick buffalo syndrome.”
If a Thai bar girl asks for your telephone number before she leaves, it might be that she likes you. Or she might call you when business is slow or to inform you that dad’s buffalo is sick.
Pattaya Girl Prices
Even though there are approximate “going rates” for girls in Pattaya, girl prices can vary from bar to bar and from one nightlife area to the next.
The fact is, regardless of where girls work, the type of bar, what they do, due to their looks and popularity—some Thai bar girls command a higher price than others in the same environment.
Pattaya Girl Long Time Prices
Other than at agogo bars, girls ask for a minimum of 2000 baht for a long-time. Bar fines can range from as little as 300 to 600 baht at beer bar complexes. At some of the most popular bars—including numerous short-time bars on Soi 6, the bar fine for long-time is 1000–1,300 baht.
At agogo bars in Pattaya, girls cost 3000–5000 baht for a long time. Bar-fine prices can vary from less than 1000 to well over 2000 baht for a long-time at agogo bars, but many bars reduce the prices late at night.
Pattaya Girl Short Time Prices
Other than at Agogo bars, short-time bar fines cost on average 300 to 600 baht in Pattaya; girls will usually ask for a minimum of 1000 baht and up to 1,500 baht.
At agogo bars that offer short-time in Pattaya, girls cost anything from 1,500 to 3000 baht, and the bar fine prices range from 800 to 1,500 baht.
Pattaya Girls Online Prices
Prices for Thai bar girls and freelancer girls online in Pattaya are no different from prices in bars, except, outside working hours there is no bar fine to pay.
Pattaya Lady Drinks Prices
Lady drinks are between 80 and 150 baht at beer bars and 150 to 200 baht at gogo bars.
Picking Up Pattaya Girls at Discos and Nightclubs
Discos and nightclubs on Walking Street are among the best places to meet girls in Pattaya, including normal “good Thai girls,” freelancers, and Thai bar girls.
Prices for bar girls and freelancers at discos and nightclubs are negotiable, and there are no bar fines to pay, so popular places to pick up girls for guys doing Pattaya on the cheap.
To avoid any misunderstanding—if you are interested in meeting girls who are not bar-girls or freelancers, it’s best to ask where they work or if they are freelancers.
Paying for a Thai Girlfriend Experience in Pattaya
To hire Thai bar girls or freelancers for a Thai girlfriend experience (rent a girlfriend) in Pattaya for a day, week, month, costs the girls daily rate, daily bar fine (if she’s a bar girl), and living expenses.
When it’s just for fun, mutual, and both parties understand it is a purely casual relationship, there’s nothing wrong with having a girlfriend experience.
The problem with having a girlfriend experience is that you might become emotionally attached and enter into a relationship with a girl who, just like the experience you paid her for, is only in it for what she can get out of you.
As they say in Pattaya, “you never lose your girlfriend. You only lose your turn.”
Paying For Sex With Thai Girls That Aren’t Girls
In Pattaya, girls, including Thai bar girls and freelancers, are not always what they seem. Fact is, some of the most beautiful—sexiest Thai girls in Pattaya are ladyboys (transgender people), aka kathoeys.
It is often difficult to spot a Thai ladyboy—until it’s too late. When your girl happens to be a ladyboy—politely tell her you didn’t know she was a ladyboy and that your preference is strictly for girls. Give her some taxi fare home or compensate her for her time, put it down to experience, and try again.
Paying for the Hottest Girls in Pattaya
To hook up with the hottest, most beautiful girls in Pattaya, whether they are “superstar” gogo dancers or sexy Thai freelance girls online, costs whatever you can negotiate.
The best-looking, most in-demand bar girls and freelancers in Pattaya can earn a comparative fortune, so they can afford to be choosy, knowing that a more generous offer will come soon enough.
Online Pattaya escorts – For comparison, Pattaya escort girl prices range from around 3000 baht for one hour to around 8000 baht overnight.
Foreign Girls in Pattaya
Many Russian and East European girls freelance in discos and nightclubs and work as dancers at Russian clubs on Walking Street. But be warned that Russian clubs and gogo bars have earned a reputation for being clip-joints in the past.
Russian girls in Pattaya cost 6000—10,000 baht. In the past, Russian girls have DEMANDED large tips for lap dancing, and the bill for drinks was much higher than the advertised price.
Paying the Price for Unprotected Sex with Girls in Pattaya.
What is the risk of getting a sexually transmitted disease in Pattaya? Who knows, but consider this: Thai bar girls typically have far more sexual partners than most girls, and with guys that—while on vacation in Pattaya—have sex with more girls than average.
You can purchase condoms at convenience stores, supermarkets, and pharmacies in Pattaya. If you have a favorite brand, or you are hung like a donkey, fetch your own.

The Price You Might Pay for Having Sex With Thai Bar Girls
The price you “might” pay for having sex with bar girls in Thailand might be by way of embarrassing misadventures with ladyboys, nursing a sick dick, what it costs to fix a bar girl’s sick buffalo. But, on a serious note, there are far worse conditions than minor STDs, and a conniving Thai bar girl will be aiming to extract far more from a relationship than what it costs to fix a sick buffalo.
The best advice for single male tourists in Pattaya for girls and sex: keep yourself to yourself, don’t flash your cash, don’t fall in love. Don’t fool yourself into believing that what happens in Pattaya is reality.
