Sorry, this not a “Thai girlfriend guide” in the context of having a serious relationship with a Thai girl, although lasting relationships can and often do start this way. This is a guide to renting girlfriends in Thailand.
More precisely, it’s about renting Thai bar girls and freelance girls from bars or online for a Thai girlfriend experience (GFE). The tried and trusted way to get a no strings attached Thai girlfriend and handy travel and Thailand guide while on vacation, or any time in Thailand.
Thai Bar Girls and The Thai Girlfriend Experience (GFE)
When you hire a Thai bar girl for anything other than short-time sex, even if it’s only for a night, you get a Thai girlfriend experience, not just sex. Meaning, you might take her for a meal or nightclubbing—before getting to know each other more intimately. In other words, it’s like having a girlfriend, but there are no strings attached.
Thai Girlfriends-cum-Travel and Thailand Guides
When you rent a Thai bar girl or freelancer for a Thai girlfriend experience, by the way, you also get a handy travel and Thailand guide, a “Thai girlfriend-cum-travel companion and Thailand travel guide.” Or simply “Thai girlfriend guide.”
It’s a casual Thai girlfriend, travel companion, Thai-speaking Thailand guide, and language interpreter, all rolled into one.
How to Hire a Girlfriend in Thailand
The best places to rent a girlfriend in Thailand, either from bars or online, are Pattaya, Bangkok, Phuket, Koh Samui, and Chiang Mai, or any touristy place with nightlife.
You need to visit bars, gogo clubs, nightclubs, and other nightlife venues until you find a bar girl or freelancer you like, that also likes you, and is available for as many days as you want to hire her.
In case she is a bar girl, you need to pay the bar fine, daily, for the duration you hire her. Whatever you pay her is the best price you can negotiate, and she keeps that for herself.
You don’t need to ask Thai bar girls or freelancers for a girlfriend experience; it happens by the way when you rent a Thai bar girl or freelancer for “long-time,” which usually means overnight, for the day, or longer.
Here’s more about how to hire Thai bar girls in Pattaya. It works the same in Bangkok, Phuket, or any other popular nightlife destination in Thailand.
What does it cost to hire a girlfriend in Thailand?
Bar-fines are non-negotiable. At most girlie bars like beer-bars, the bar-fine is around 500+ baht. At gogo bars, it could be anywhere between 700 and 2000 baht. On top of the bar-fine, expect girls to ask for a minimum of 2000 baht per day; that’s negotiable.
You may find some girls go relatively cheap, more so the ones that like you, but most bar girls and freelancers are going to ask for an amount at least equal to what they earn. And you might be surprised to know some of the most in-demand bar girls, such as go-go dancers and girls working in popular short-time sex bars, make well over 5000 baht per day.
It’s sometimes possible to negotiate a lower price when you rent a Thai girlfriend for a week, a month, for example. You can offer her a rate for that period, for example, 30,000 baht for the month, perhaps less if you’re lucky.
There is no bar-fine to pay for freelance girls; it’s merely a case of negotiating her daily rate. Freelancers mainly look for customers in discos, nightclubs, and online on Thai dating sites.
How to find a Thai girlfriend for rent online in Thailand?
Finding Thai girls for rent online in Thailand is simply a matter of using a Thai dating site, a Thai dating site where Thai bar girls and freelancers hang out. Locations like Pattaya, Bangkok, and Phuket are the best places to find bar girls and freelancers online. Especially Pattaya, where up to fifty percent of the girls are bar girls and freelancers.
The best way to approach it is to assume any girl is a bar girl or freelancer unless her profile information states otherwise. Politely ask, either directly or indirectly, if she is a freelancer or a bar girl, then take it from there.

Never Pay in Advance
Not only might paying in advance result in a lack of incentive, if she is so inclined—she might slip away, never to be seen again. The best way is to pay one day at a time, day by day.
Be upfront and honest
Some bar girls are husband-hunting. Being honest from the start and telling her you are totally not interested in a serious relationship will avert any illusion that the casual relationship might develop into something more serious.
How to Handle the Thai Girlfriend Experience
Most importantly, respect her, and she will respect you back. Play the boyfriend role, return her compliments and affection.
However you feel about her, don’t go all soppy and gooey-eyed or say anything that might give her the impression she’s got you hooked.
The problem with having a Thai girlfriend experience is—having a prolonged girlfriend experience (GFE) means you might get attached, even fall in love.
They say “never fall in love with a Thai bar girl,” but actually, if she genuinely loves you too, for all the right reasons, then why not?
The thing is, though, if she’s a gold-digger, and many are, she will string you along, especially if you’re a kind-hearted person, and she knows you have heaps of money. So be warned, after whatever promises were made and her tearful farewell at the airport when it’s your time to go home, she might be in the arrival hall ten minutes later, waiting for her next boyfriend to arrive.
