Better known for its short time-time bars and friendly Thai bar girls, Pattaya’s infamous naughty nightlife street and red light area of Soi 6 between Pattaya Beach Road and 2nd Road is a place where you can expect to meet and encounter Thai ladyboys in Pattaya.
Indeed, Soi 6/1, which is the back entrance to bars on that side of Soi 6, is a famous ladyboy street in Pattaya, where ladyboys often hang out, propositioning single males that pass by.
One thing that’s stuck out about ladyboys on Soi 6 over the years is how masculine many of them are. Being tall, broad-shouldered, and with very manly appearances (see photo below), no amount of makeup could ever make them look like anything other than men wearing ladies’ clothing.
But don’t be fooled; spotting ladyboys in Pattaya is not always so easy. It can often happen to be that, in Pattaya, the prettiest Thai girl you ever met turns out to be a ladyboy.
