What are bar-girls in Thailand?
Bar girls are girls who work in bars and other adult nightlife venues in Thailand — and are also prostitutes.
What about ladyboys?
As they say in Thailand “same same, but different”. The reality is — some bar-girls in Thailand are ladyboys.
Where to find bar-girls in Pattaya?
- At beer bars
- Short-time bars
- Fetish bars bars and clubs
- Waitresses, dancers at agogo clubs
- Hostesses at gentleman’s clubs
- Freelancing online.
What Do Thai Bar Girls Do?
A bar girl’s primary role at a bar — whether it’s a beer bar, short-time bar, go-go bar — is to attract male customers to the bar, entertain them and encourage them to spend money in the bar. At some bars, girls offer “short-time sex activities” and even fantasy role-play services on the premises.
What is it about Thai bar-girls?
Beyond the obvious — sex, and the thrill of Thailand’s famous naughty nightlife scene — the appeal is just the way it is, the fun way it happens with Thai bar-girls — the girlfriend experience and all that goes with it.
Picking up and paying for bar-girls in Pattaya — step by step
At most bars and adult nightlife venues in Pattaya — the order of play, and pay, will go something like:
1) You enter a bar, take a seat, order a drink.
2) A girl might come along, introduce herself, ask if she can sit down, or she might be introduced to you by the Mamasan — who asks if you would like a lady to keep you company.
What is a Mamasan in Thailand?
The Mamasan manages the girls in bars, especially go-go bars and larger bar complexes. In many bars the Mamasan is looked upon as a matriarchal figure — offering guidance and support, and often liaises between customers and girls.
3) Thai bar-girls usually open the conversation with basic questions such as: what’s your name, where you come from. After the ice is broken and the conversation starts to flow — she will ask if you would like to buy her a drink — in case you never offered already.
Bar games (see photo below) and pool are popular at bars in Pattaya, and a fun — easy way for girls to keep customers entertained — and spending money in the bar.
4) She’s really cute, you like her, she seems to like you too. You ask her to join you for the night, she says yes, you negotiate a fee for her time.
5) You pay the bar fine, pay your bill, and leave. How you choose to entertain yourself for the rest of the day or night is up to you and her.

What are lady-drinks in Thailand?
Any drink you buy for Thai bar-girls employed at bars and other nightlife venues is called a lady-drink. Girls earn commission on lady-drinks bought for them by customers, and at some nightlife venues they might even be expected to reach a monthly sales quota.
Price of Lady Drinks in Pattaya
Prices for lady-drinks are between 80 and 150 baht at beer bars, and 150 to 200 baht at gogo bars.
TIP: If you don’t want a bar-girl sat with you, just tell her you are not interested. Don’t feel obliged to accept her invitation, especially if you just called in for a look-see.
Pattaya Bar Girl Long Time Prices
What is long-time?
When you hire a bar-girl for “long time” it typically means she will stay with you throughout the day and night, either until early morning or when she’s due to start her next shift at the bar.
Of course, her definition of “long time” might be different to yours. Example: you take a girl from a bar at mid-day, and by early evening she declares “long time already” and heads back to the bar, and the prospect of another customer. So it’s best to be clear from the outset exactly what you expect.
Girls from beer bars are likely to ask for a minimum 2000 baht for long-time. Go-go dancers might ask for 3000 to 5000 baht. There is no set price for bar girls in Pattaya, whether they are from a beer bar, a go-go club or gentleman’s club. It all depends what you both think she’s worth, how much she thinks she can get out of you, and your negotiating skills.
Negotiating the Price with Bar Girls in Pattaya
Some bar girls are upfront, they will immediately state their opening price. Others hedge their bets by replying “up to you”. If you offer an unsatisfactory price she will most likely reply with a look of disinterest, or ask you to try again.
Pattaya Bar Girl Short Time Prices
What is short time?
If you take a girl for a “short time” you would normally take her to a room on the bar premises and enjoy some “short time sex” activities for an hour or two.
Prices for short-time sex in Pattaya vary from bar to bar. On Soi 6 – Pattaya’s most famous short-time bar street – a “short-time” might cost 1,500 to 2000 baht, including the bar fine and room rental. Short-time at go-go bars is at least double the price.
Bar Fine Prices in Pattaya
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 paid to the bar as compensation for the temporary loss of one of the bar staff.
So if you take a girl from a bar for long-time, you pay the bar-fine for every day that she stays in your company and does not return to work in the bar.
Bar-fines at beer bar complexes and shop-house style bars are generally around 500 to 600 baht. Bar fines at go-go clubs in Pattaya vary from club to club. You would be lucky to find one with a bar-fine of less than 1000 baht, and 1,500 to 2000 baht is typical for most, but some reduce the rate after midnight.
Price of Freelance Girls in Pattaya
The price of a freelance girl in Pattaya should be comparable to the amount you would pay a bar-girl, minus the bar fine. There’s a lot of girls working freelance in Pattaya, either part-time or full time. Not only bar girls or ex bar girls, but girls with ordinary jobs in stores, hotels, etc.
Freelance girls hang out online, and in popular nightclubs and discos such as Insomnia and Marine Disco on Walking Street.
Never Pay Bar Girls in Advance
Some bar-girls will ask for money upfront. They may offer you a convincing reason to hand over your money, such as they need to pay back a loan to a friend, or whatever. If you pay her, well, she’s got your money now, and that’s all she’s in it for. There’s a very good chance she will speed things along and leave in a hurry.

Paying to Take a Bar Girl to Your Hotel Room in Pattaya
One of the important things guys need to know before planning a trip to Pattaya for nightlife and girls is — choosing the wrong hotel can result in having to pay an additional “joiner fee” every time you take a guest/girl to your room
The best hotels for single men in Pattaya are ones which do not charge a joiner fee. They are commonly known as: guest friendly, girl friendly, joiner friendly, and bar-girl friendly hotels. The most popular guest friendly hotels in Pattaya are mainly located close to the nightlife zones in downtown Pattaya.
Paying For Sex With Thai Girls Who Aren’t Girls
It’s one of the biggest Pattaya nightlife pitfalls for a hetrosexual man in Pattaya. He picks up a bar-girl from a bar, or meets some girl at a disco or nightclub.
Sooner or later, to his embarrassment — he discovers his girl is actually a ladyboy. Aside from those with obvious manly features, It’s not always easy to spot a ladyboy in Thailand.
The Price of Unprotected Sex With Pattaya Bar Girls
Is it safe to have unprotected sex (sex without a condom) with Thai bar-girls in Pattaya?
There’s nothing right about having unprotected casual sex in Pattaya — with bar-girls. No matter what anyone says.
Risk of Sexually Transmitted Diseases in Pattaya
It’s true, some bars (probably a very small minority) insist that girls have periodic STD checks. Even so — even if every bar insisted that every girl had periodic checks — a girl could have slept with dozens of customers since her last check.
There are numerous clinics in Pattaya where you can get a diagnosis and treatment of sexually transmitted diseases comparatively cheap, but of course — not all sexually transmitted diseases/infections are treatable.
Getting a Girl Pregnant & The Pregnant Thai Bargirl Scam
Some weeks after you return home — a bar-girl you had sex with contacts you and tells you she’s pregnant.
She might be pregnant for real, or she might be trying to scam you — asking for cash for support or to make the problem go away. In either case you should get official confirmation that she’s pregnant, that the estimated time of conception coincides with the time you had sex with her, and get a paternity (DNA) test.
Sponsoring Thai Bar Girls — The Thai Bargirl Scam
It’s not a question of “should you fall in love with a Thai bar-gir”, sometimes, usually after a guy has a prolonged “girlfriend experience” with a bar-girl in Pattaya — it just can’t be helped.
She feels the same — she says. The guy supports her so she doesn’t have to work in the bar while he’s away. She might be genuine — or the guy might be one of many “sponsors” sending her money every month, while she continues to work in the bar.
