If you expected “Thai girlfriend guides” in the context of a “dating Thai girls” guide, sorry, this is a “casual Thai girlfriends guide” for single men seeking a Thai girlfriend cum travel companion/guide or Thai girlfriend experience while on vacation in Thailand.
Getting a casual “no strings attached” Thai girlfriend to hang out with, or as a girlfriend cum travel companion/guide to explore Thailand with is not difficult.
Most importantly, it’s something you can do yourself, either beforehand, or once you arrive in Thailand, no need to spend your hard-earned cash on so-called “Thailand singles sex holidays” inclusive of room and pre-arranged “sexy Thai hostess”.
How to get a Thai girlfriend experience or girlfriend travel companion/guide in Thailand?
The easiest, and only practical way to hook-up with a Thai girl for a girlfriend experience, as a travel companion/guide, or any kind of casual “no strings attached relationship” while on vacation in Thailand is to hire a Thai bar-girl or freelancer. It’s often termed “rent a girlfriend” or “rent a wife”.
Hiring a Thai bar girl is a ready-made girlfriend experience:
When you pay to take a bar girl from a bar in Thailand, the experience is, well, it’s quite famously like having a girlfriend for the night – rather than a cold business-like transaction. You might go for drinks, catch a movie, go nightclubbing, and finally back to your hotel to get a little more intimate.
Best places to find a Thai GFE or girlfriend cum travel companion in Thailand
You can hire Thai bar girls and freelancers online (see below), or at bars and go-go clubs in Thailand’s popular nightlife spots such as Pattaya, Bangkok, and Phuket.
It’s best to get friendly first – break the ice, chat, play a bar game, maybe a game of pool, and just mention that you intend to head off to the islands or wherever, or that you’re looking for a cute Thai girl, just like her, to hang out with for a few days.
Because you can see inside without entering, and quickly see how many girls are working, how good looking they are, is there a pool table, etc, beer bars – like this one on Soi Diana in Pattaya (photo below), are a good place to start your search. On the other hand, at go-go bars – you need to enter and buy a drink before you can check out what’s going on.
For many guys who holiday in places like Pattaya, Bangkok and Phuket for the nightlife and sex, and pick up bar girls every day or as required, a Thai girlfriend experience happens by chance when they pick up a girl they hit it off with and ask her to stick around.
How much does a Thai girlfriend experience or girlfriend/travel companion cost?
It depends on what type of bar you hire the girl from. For example, a girl from a typical beer bar in Pattaya would most likely ask for around 2000 baht per day, and the bar fine at beer bars is usually a few hundred baht, it varies from bar to bar. A good-looking go-go dancer will, in most cases ask for a lot more than a girl from a beer bar, and the bar fine will exceed 1000 baht per day.
If she likes you, and the idea of guaranteed money for the next few days, she might give you a discount.
Hiring a Thai girlfriend/travel companion online will cost whatever daily rate you can negotiate with the girl. If she also works in a bar she will ask you to pay the bar fine also.
Get a Thai girlfriend experience or travel companion online
These days, more and more Thai bar girls are choosing to work freelance online on dating sites, and perhaps after the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic – which saw many bar girls lose their jobs, and their income, even more might likely choose to make themselves available for hire online.
With that in mind, it’s a good idea to join a Thai dating site yourself.
Online – you can hook-up with girls 24/7 every day of the year – including (no alcohol days) when the bars are closed, there’s no need to pay bar fines, and you can build a list of contacts and potential girlfriends/travel companions before you arrive in Thailand.
Popular Dating Sites and Apps to Hook-up with a Thai Girlfriend/Travel Companion
If you’re using Tinder already, stick with it, it’s a very popular hookup app in Thailand. ThaiCupid is popular, but be warned, you need a premium (paid) membership to send messages.
What makes ThaiFriendly better than the rest – when it comes to hiring a Thai girlfriend/travel companion is – in popular nightlife locations like Bangkok, Phuket, Koh Samui, and especially Pattaya – a comparatively large number of the 2 million+ members are bar girls and freelancers.
There’s nothing to lose – it’s free to join, and free to use ThaiFriendly. There’s a premium (paid) membership if you ever need backup, but the free version is good enough to get you an occasional Thai girlfriend/travel companion or Thai GFE – usually in just a few minutes.
It’s dead simple:
Thankfully, there’s not a gazillion pointless bells and whistles, and like a honey badger, ThaiFriendly doesn’t give a $hit about matchmaking. It’s dead simple, you search, browse, send interest to get attention, ask girls what they’re all about, and save the ones you like to the favorites list.
Sign up, choose a user-name, fill-out your profile.
By the way, you can turn de-activate and re-activate your account any you please time, your profile will not appear anywhere, and you will not receive messages.
A profile photo is optional but recommended. Without one – don’t expect any girls to approach you directly, and most girls will not respond to your interest or messages.
Choose your location. If you are in town, in Pattaya for example, selecting Pattaya as your location will attract much more interest, especially from Thai women into casual dating.
Bar girls and freelancers mainly have quite blank profiles, with their age preferences set to “ANY” but there are exceptions. Some include their profession in their profile info, sometimes accompanied by “seductive” photos and other tell-tale signals like Line ID or messages which make it obvious what they are there for.
How you approach it is up to you, but getting to the point indirectly by asking “what are you looking for?” or more directly by asking “are you freelance?” will save you a lot useless chit-chat, and time.
Once you find a girl, assuming she is a freelancer or bar girl, negotiate a price.
Don’t expect every “available” girl to accept your offer, some freelancers are only interested in “right now”. You call them, they come, they go, on to the next.
Layboys: This is Thailand lol, on ThaiFriendly you can choose to browse the gender of your choice, women, men, or ladyboys.
Don’t get scammed
The golden rule is – never pay in advance, no matter how sick her dad’s buffalo is, or how badly her mother’s roof is leaking, don’t give cash advances, play safe and pay 1 day at a time.
Here’s what happened to my friend. He found what he thought was a nice girl to join him for a week in Pattaya. For 2 weeks before he arrived he spoke to her most nights and built up a nice rapport with her.
All good, he thought, but he made his one mistake on the first day. She asked him for money upfront, he gave it to her. You probably guessed, she made an excuse she had to go somewhere, she would be back shortly, and he never saw her again. He quickly found another companion on ThaiFriendly, but that little episode was expensive and avoidable.
Thanks for reading, stay safe and enjoy your trip.
