A guide to what Pattaya girls cost and the price you might pay for having sex with Thai bar girls in Thailand:
There are many ways to meet girls for fun and sex while on vacation in Pattaya, including booking online call girls and escorts and visiting naughty massage parlors. For most single men that visit Pattaya for girls and sex, though, “Pattaya girls” means the fun-loving Thai bar girls and freelance girls that are found in Pattaya bars, agogo clubs, nightclubs, and on ThaiFriendly.
Pattaya girl prices: how much you pay for girls in Pattaya depends on whether they are Thai bar girls or freelancers, how attractive they are, what you’re looking for, how gullible you are, and some unavoidable factors and formalities such as buying lady drinks and paying bar fines.
2 Pattaya Girl Tips:
1) Use Thai dating apps to book Pattaya girls online 24/7 without buying lady drinks and paying bar fines.
2) Book a guest friendly hotel in Pattaya to avoid paying joiner fees when you take a girl to your hotel room.
What are Thai Bar Girls in Pattaya?
Thai bar girls are women employed as servers, hostesses, and dancers who are also available for sex at girlie bars such as beer bars, agogo bars, and gentleman’s clubs in Pattaya and most other touristy sex destinations in Thailand.
A bar girl’s primary role is attracting, entertaining, and selling drinks to male customers who may pay a bar fine for the privilege of hiring bar girls for “adult activities” outside (sometimes inside) the bar.
What’s it like with Pattaya bar girls?
Pattaya’s bar girls have a reputation for being, among other things, mainly very welcoming, outwardly friendly, and fun to be with, like having a girlfriend—until the money runs out.
The Thai girlfriend experience is a good description of what it’s like. It’s one of the best, and potentially worst things about Thai bar girls and freelancers in Pattaya.
Many frequent visitors to Pattaya adopt a 3-day rule. What that means is, so that they don’t become attached or fall in love, they don’t see the same girl for more than three consecutive days.
What is a Mamasan in Thailand?
The Mamasan is the girls’ boss; she manages the girls employed at the bar, especially in agogo bars that employ many girls. She is also a matriarchal figure who sometimes liaises between customers and girls.
What are Freelance Girls in Pattaya?
Freelancers, as they say in Thailand, are “same same but different.” The difference between freelancers and bar girls is freelancers are not employed by bars. That means unless they have an arrangement with the bar, there are no bar fines to pay and no hiked-up prices for lady drinks.
The best places to meet freelancers in Pattaya are on online dating apps, Beach Road (aka the Coconut Bar), in nightclubs and discos such as Ibar—Insomnia, Lucifer, 808, and Candy Shop on Walking Street, and in numerous freelancer-friendly bars in Pattaya like Billabong on LK Metro and Bamboo bar near Walking Street.
Best Places and Bars to Hook Up With Girls in Pattaya
- Agogo bars in Pattaya, predominantly on Walking Street and Soi LK Metro.
- Beer bar complexes in Sois 7 and 8, Soi Baukhao, and most Pattaya nightlife zones.
- Gentleman’s clubs, especially popular in the Soi Buakhao area.
- Shop-house-style girlie bars, throughout Pattaya
- Short-time bars, throughout Pattaya, most notably on Soi 6
The cheapest places to meet bar girls in Pattaya are online and in the cheap beer bars of places like Soi New Plaza and Soi Made in Thailand in the Soi Buakhao area, while the most expensive are the Agago bars of Walking Street and Soi LK Metro where you typically find the sexiest girls in Pattaya.
After closing time for regular bars and agogo clubs in Pattaya, girls often try their luck picking up customers in discos and nightclubs on Walking Street.

Picking up girls in Pattaya 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 they are popular places to pick up girls when you’re doing Pattaya on the cheap.
To avoid misunderstanding, ask where girls where they work or if they are freelancers.
How to Pick Up Bar Girls in Pattaya
These are the formalities of picking up Thai bar girls in Pattaya and what to expect after entering and ordering a drink at a typical girlie bar in Pattaya:
The Introduction …..
Aside from the transaction, picking up bar girls (and freelancers) in Pattaya is like picking up “normal girls” at pubs and clubs back home, but mostly without fear of rejection.
What happens shortly after ordering your first drink at many girlie bars in Pattaya, especially gogo bars, is girls come along and 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 in girlie bars and drink alone. Politely tell her NO, not now, maybe later after a drink or two.
Bar Girl Meets Boy!
It’s usual to buy “lady drinks” for Thai bar girls while chatting and getting to know them and if there’s any chemistry between you.
Things Pattaya Bar Girls Say:
Most bar girls in Pattaya open the conversation with the obvious “What’s your name,” followed by:
- Where do you come from?
- How long have you been in Thailand?
- Is it your first time in Pattaya?
- Do you speak Thai?
- Where do you stay?
Depending on their motives, they can soon evaluate whether a guy is a newbie in Pattaya who might be easily deluded and separated from his cash. Or if he’s wealthy, single, and knows the score, or might be boyfriend material—if that’s what a girl is looking for.
Pattaya Bar Girl Lies:
Some secrets to being a successful bar girl in Pattaya are to keep secrets, tell lies when necessary, and always tell a guy what he wants to hear.
Hence, regardless of a guy’s looks and age, so long as he has money in his pocket, in Pattaya, he will always be a handsome or sexy man.
Bar girls are not all free and single. Many have Thai husbands and kids waiting at home, one or more foreign boyfriends sponsoring them from abroad, or they’ve worked in girlie bars longer than they dare admit.
Common lies that (some) Pattaya bar girls tell:
- 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
The oft-repeated advice “Never fall in love with a Thai bar girl” is well-intentioned but not strictly true, even a little unfair. Some bar girls, however difficult to find, really are different.
Playing Games with Pattaya Girls:
The real purpose of playing games like Connect 4 (photo above) with bar girls is not to connect four; it’s more about spending time and lots of money while making a connection.
The Games Pattaya Girls Play:
Pattaya bar girls love to play for money. It’s symbolic of how it is with Pattaya girls. And knowing the rules of the Pattaya girls’ game, the game of squeezing money from customers is the secret to having fun with 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 “lady drinks.” Girls earn a generous commission on lady drinks bought for them by customers.
Lady drinks can cost up to twice the price of standard drinks. For example, if a girl has a Leo beer, it will likely cost around 150 baht, whereas a customer’s bottle of Leo costs around 80 baht.
While it’s frowned upon by bar owners, some girls are happy to drink slowly and would rather have a large tip than one drink after another.
At some bars in Pattaya, girls must reach a monthly “lady drink” sales quota.
Pattaya Lady Drink Problems & Scams
Drinks Queens: Some bar girls string you along, gladly accepting drink after drink, despite having no intention of leaving with you. To save money on drinks, always ask if the girl is available and interested sooner rather than later.
Pushy Girls: At some bars in Pattaya, girls can be pushy when it comes to lady drinks, often asking for drinks before properly introducing themselves and then drinking like a proverbial fish.
No happy hour prices: At many bars in Pattaya, happy hour prices do not apply to lady drinks. It’s always a good idea to ask first.
A minimum amount of lady drinks: At some gogo bars in Pattaya, there is a requirement to buy a minimum number of lady drinks for a girl before she can be barfined and leave with a customer.
Pattaya Lady Drinks Prices
The price of lady drinks at most beer bars and gentleman’s clubs in Pattaya is around 150 baht. Lady drinks, and regular drinks are generally cheaper in the Soi Buakhao area.
At Gogo bars/clubs, lady drinks cost 150–220 baht. Expect to pay, on average, around 170 baht at agogo bars in Soi LK Metro and 190 baht in Walking Street.
Some Pattaya gogo bars have a 2-tier pricing system for lady drinks (and bar fines), with premium lady drink prices for the most beautiful girls.
For comparison, the price of a standard drink in Pattaya, a bottle of Leo beer, for example, costs 70–90 baht in most beer bars and gentleman’s clubs and 120–170 baht in gogo bars.
Paying the Bar Fine for Girls in Pattaya
If there’s some chemistry, and a girl likes you, she might ask if you would like to barfine her. Otherwise, it’s up to the guy to ask if he can “barfine” her or if she would like to go with him.
It’s always best to negotiate the girl’s price first and to arrange the details, including how long she stays. Then pay the bar fine and drinks bill just before leaving.
Haggling the Price with Pattaya Girls
It’s not worth haggling over small amounts and can spoil the mood. But if they sense you are a first-timer in Pattaya, girls will almost always ask for much more than the going rate. It’s best to offer the going rate for girls in Pattaya and take it from there.
What is a Bar Fine in Thailand?
Before you can take a Thai bar girl or hostess from a bar, you must pay a bar fine. The bar fine is compensation paid to the bar for the temporary absence of staff, and the revenue lost due to the girl not being in the bar selling lady drinks.
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.
If you pay a girl to stick around for a few days (long long time) for a girlfriend experience, to show you the sights in Pattaya, or whatever, you have to pay the bar fine for every day she stays with you.
When To Pay Girls in Pattaya
Some Pattaya bar girls 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 paying bar girls, it’s best to think of it as paying them to leave. In other words, never pay upfront. If it’s for a girlfriend experience or a few days, pay day by day.
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.
The Walk of Shame
TIP – Most hotels insist that joiners, such as a man’s nightly bar girl companions (aka barfines), are at least 18 years old and report to the front desk with their ID cards. Many men find it embarrassing, hence “the walk of shame.”
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, and what they do, due to their looks and popularity—some Thai bar girls command a higher price than others in the same environment.
Pattaya Girls 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 a 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 reduce the prices late at night.
Pattaya Girls Short Time Prices
Other than at Agogo bars, short-time bar fines cost, on average, 300 to 600 baht in Pattaya, and girls will usually ask for a minimum of 1000 baht and up to 1,500 baht.
At agogo bars in Pattaya that offer short-time, girls cost anything from 1,500 to 3000 baht, and the bar fine prices range from 800 to 1,500 baht.
Pattaya Girls Online Booking Prices
Many single men that visit Pattaya for sex and want to hook up with girls on the cheap make use of online dating apps, where the majority of Pattaya girls online are freelancers and bar girls.
What it costs to book Pattaya girls online on popular dating apps is no different from prices in bars, except outside working hours, or for freelancers, there’s no need to buy lady drinks and pay bar fines.
What are long time and short time with girls in Pattaya?
A long time is typically overnight. So, for example, you pick up a Pattaya bar girl or freelancer during a night out; she stays with you overnight and leaves in the morning or at whatever time was agreed.
Short time is when you hire a girl for an hour or two of “short time activity,” aka boom boom. Typically, the girl will take you to a short-time room in the bar or a nearby hotel with short-time rooms and hourly rates, such as the popular “love hotels” in Pattaya.
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.
Paying for Girlfriend Experience with Girls in Pattaya
To hire Thai bar girls or freelancers for a girlfriend experience (rent a girlfriend) in Pattaya for a day, week, or month costs the girl’s daily rate, daily bar fine (if she’s a bar girl), and living expenses.
When it’s just for fun and mutual, and both parties understand it is a purely casual relationship, there’s nothing wrong with having a girlfriend experience in Thailand.
The problem with having a Thai girlfriend experience is the risk of becoming emotionally attached and entering into a relationship with a girl who is only interested in getting herself another overseas sponsor.
Paying for a Pattaya girl’s sick buffalo
Thai bar girls are very perceptive. They can soon determine whether a man is susceptible to their charms. If a guy is good-hearted (jai dee), girls might tell him a sob story in the hope of squeezing a little extra money out of him.
The story might be that she doesn’t have enough money to pay the electric bill or needs to buy medicine for her dad’s sick buffalo. Such sob stories invented by Thai bar girls are known as “sick buffalo syndrome.”
Paying for sex with Pattaya girls that aren’t girls
In Pattaya, some of the prettiest girls are not girls; they’re 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, and your preference is strictly for girls. Give her some taxi fare home, compensate her for her time, put it down to experience, and hope for better luck next time.
Paying the price for sex with the cutest Pattaya girls
Hooking up with the hottest, most sexy girls in Pattaya, whether they are “superstar” gogo dancers or freelance girls online, costs whatever you can negotiate.
The sexiest, 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.
Paying the price for sex with 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.
Condoms can be purchased at convenience stores, supermarkets, and pharmacies in Pattaya. If you have a favorite brand, or you are hung like a donkey, fetch your own.
