Pattaya is the center of nightlife for single men in Thailand. The city where dreams come true, the place where every man will have fun. There is always something going on in Pattaya. You will find a staggering amount of massage parlors in Pattaya, beer bars, go-go bars, discos, and nightclubs.
The most famous place for Pattaya's party nightlife is the so-called Walking Street; if you are more into beer bars, you will find what you are looking for on Soi 6 and LK Metro. As a single man wandering around Pattaya, you will quickly gain the attention of many Thai ladies. Enjoy your time as many people do: A daily massage keeps the stress away. ;-)
If you are headed to Pattaya, staying in a guest friendly hotel in Pattaya is a must. Chances are high you are going to bring somebody up your hotel room; whether a bar-girl or ladyboy; many hotels try to charge you an extra fee for this additional joiner in your hotel room. To avoid this, make sure you booked a girl friendly hotel in Pattaya. Scroll up and search hotels on this website; we only list guest friendly hotels where you can take a guest up to your room.
There are many beer bars in Pattaya. If it's your first time, let me explain how things usually go down.
You go to a beer bar, sit, and order a drink. The ladies will try to get with you into a conversation or try to play games with you. After some time they may ask you for a lady drink, which is a bit more expensive than a regular glass, she will get a commission on it. When both of you like each other, she offers you - or you can ask her, to go to your hotel room. You have to pay a bar fine; which is usually around 500 baht. This money is for the bar to let the girl go with you as they are losing a working girl for the time she's with you.
On top of that, the girl wants to have a “tip.” Most of the time, you are paying around 1000 baht for a Short Time (1-2h) and 2000 baht for a Long Time (the whole night). Note that it varies a lot, the bar-girl may ask more or less depending on how busy it is, on how much she likes you... there are many factors involved here. You can try to negotiate too, don't be shy.
Many beer bars can be found on the infamous Walking Street, on Soi 7, Soi 6, Soi Buakhao and in Naklua (Soi Pattaya-Naklua). In fact, there are plenty of beer bars all over Pattaya. No matter where you stay, just look out of the typical bar-looking places with lots of girl sitting inside, blasting loud music and usually a lot of red/purple/pink lighting.
Assure that you're not expecting a negative surprise when arriving at your hotel, make sure that you book a guest friendly hotel in Pattaya so the bar-girl can stay over in your hotel room at no additional charge. Some hotels will try to charge you an additional fee if a joiner is staying in your hotel room.
If you are headed for a go-go bar in Pattaya - often also called Agogo bars, expect a slightly different atmosphere than in beer bars. Agogo girls in Pattaya seem rather shy, they are usually on a platform in the middle of the bar with a bunch of poles. The poles are - unfortunately - rarely used. The girls on the platform just move around a bit, dancing and looking out for customers.
The majority of Agogo bars can be found in Walking Street. Agogo bars usually have a theme, such as nurses, pandas, and so on.. the list is long. Many Agogo bars also target a specific group of customers, i.e. Korean visitors or Chinese tourists - but don't be afraid to go take a look into any of them.
Agogo bars always have security guards at the entrance. As long as you behave and don't look like you will be making trouble, you will be permitted to enter. You should not carry any camera with you, taking photos or videos in Agogo bars is strictly forbidden. Do not try to make any hidden photos, you absolutely don't want to get in trouble with any of the Thai or foreign Agogo bar owners or so-called "mamacitas".
Agogo girls always wear a band, have a sticker on them or similar with their unique identifying number. If there's a particular girl you are interested in, just inform one of the servers, they will call the girl to come to you. You have to buy her a drink if you want her to stay and sit with you. Prices for these drinks vary, usually between 200 and 350 baht.
If after a bit of talking you decide you like her, ask her out. She'll tell you the amount of money you have to pay to the bar (bar fine) and how much she expects for either short or long time stay with her. Note that these prices are always higher than beer bars. Agogo bars are more expensive to run and they usually have better-looking girls than beer bars. Expect a bar fine between 700 - 1000 baht and an additional 1000 - 2500 baht for her.
There are even more massage parlors in Pattaya than bars probably! You will find the massage parlors everywhere. Prices are about 150 baht for a foot massage, 200 baht for Thai massage, 300 baht for oil massage. On top of that some of the salons or girls they offer you a special massage, a happy ending or also called happy end massage. You mostly can choose between a handjob for 500 baht, a blowjob for 800 baht or sex for 1000 baht. Sometimes you can ask the girl if she is willing to come to your hotel later for a second massage which is more intimate. Only make sure you have a massage girl friendly hotel in Pattaya. All girl friendly hotel in Pattaya is also massage-girl friendly. Good places for happy ending massages are: Second Road, Soi Buakhao, Walking Street, Soi 13/2, Soi 6
Some “normal” girls are also working sometimes as a freelancer, most of them you will find in the nightclubs. Like this, it's not so evident for their colleagues if someone would see her. Those who don’t care or who have no other job will mostly be at the beach road, the central place where you can find freelancers. A fair price is around 1000 baht for Short Time and 2000 for Long Time. If you have a freelancer-friendly hotel in Pattaya (above in the listing you find them), there is no risk for you, and you can bring them to your room.
You will find ladyboys everywhere in Pattaya, in every “normal” beer bar or go-go bar there will be some ladyboys. But It you want to be sure that you will meet 100% only ladyboys, then the right places for short time bars are Soi 6/1, Soi 13/4 and some Ladyboy massage parlors you can find in Soi 13/1. It's essential that you are booking a ladyboy friendly hotel in Pattaya!
