What is the difference between the guys who banged Thai ladyboys 10 years ago compared to the guys doing it today? Well, 10 years ago they would come home from their holiday and after the fifth beer with their mates in the pub they’d come up with that once-in-a-lifetime story where they took that incredibly hot thing back to their hotel room and to their big surprise faced a cock instead of a pussy.
Back then, these stories had the most different endings (or not) from being to overwhelmed and sending her away to the greatest sexual experience in their lives. But that’s not the point here.
The point is that today there are more people than ever who make it the highlight of their trip to actively seek for sex with a Thai ladyboy rather than “by accident” running into one and then just going with it like it used to be.
I guess you are one of those guys because you are reading this article so here I’m giving you the complete guide of the different ways to meet Thai ladyboys in Pattaya which is, along with Bangkok, the best place in Thailand “to do it”. Before we get into it, you may find the following phrases useful, depending on what you are looking for:
- tam sàláyá-gaam bplɛɛng pɛ̂ɛt rʉ̆ʉ yang (ทำศัลยกรรมแปลงเพศหรือยัง)
Have you already done a genital reassignment surgery?
A more “informal” or more to the point kind of way to ask is:
- mii jǔu mǎi (มีจู๋ไหม)
Do you have a dick?
If she says
- yang mâi dâai tam (ยังไม่ได้ทำ) or respectively
- mii (มี)
you will have to go through the back door. But if she answers
- tam lɛ́ɛo (ทำแล้ว) or respectively
- mâi mii (ไม่มี)
then you got two options. I hope you could follow along there and now let’s come to the main part of the article. There is no better place to meet and sleep with Thai ladyboys than Pattaya and there are 5 different ways to do so, each with its own pros and cons: ladyboy bar girls, ladyboy go go girls, ladyboy massage girls, ladyboy street hookers or you simply arrange your own date with the popular Thai Online Dating Site.
Ladyboy Bars in Pattaya
There is only one pure and dedicated area with ladyboy bars in Pattaya: Soi 6/1, a narrow 200m alley connecting Second Road with Beach Road. It’s full of short time bars means beer bars with short time rooms in the same venue. You don’t even have to order a drink here and can pick a sexy ladyboy from one of those bars right away and follow her to the rooms upstairs. They tend to ask for 1,500 Baht but you can bring it down to 1,000 or at least 1,300 Baht with some basic negotiation skills.
The Walking Street area is also a great place to hook up with ladyboys, but the bars are spread all over the place and not all in one line like it’s the case in Soi 6/1. Lita Bar is now the best bar in this category with the hottest ladyboys you can imagine and short time rooms for 300 Baht, somewhat hidden in the B.J. Alley (not to be confused with Soi B.J.). There are also plenty of freelancers in the bars that surround the entrance to B.J. Alley from Walking Street and there’s one more pure ladyboy bar though it definitely has seen better times in its 10 years history: Linda Bar, right next to Living Dolls A Go Go. Kind of hidden and only known to few people are Nam Bar and Layla Bar (see map below).
The third hot spot for ladyboy bars in Pattaya is Soi Buakhao. Just walk down that street from 10pm and you’ll meet not just plenty of freelancer kathoeys trying to join you to your hotel for sex, but also three of the most popular bars in this category in all of Pattaya: Duangjai Bar Beer in Soi LK Metro, Pook Swan and just a stone throw away: Fantasy Lounge. There’s another place called Sensations (like the Go Go on Walking Street), a very average beer bar with very average ladyboys.
And one more popular venue is located on Soi 13/2: Carona Bar.
Prices: You are looking at pretty much the same prices for beers (about 100 Baht) lady drinks (140-160 Baht) and bar fines (about 500-700 Baht) like in the girls-bars. However, short time with most ladyboys is still cheaper at 1,000 Baht compared to the “real” ladies who often ask for 2,000 Baht. You obviously don’t need to pay a bar fine in the short time bars of Soi 6 but instead they may ask for a room rental fee of 300 Baht.
Ladyboy Go Go Bars in Pattaya
You might be surprised but there’s only one ladyboy go go bar on Walking Street: Katoyes Are Us in Soi Diamond. All others you will find on
- Soi 13/4: This Soi has the two most famous ladyboy go go bars in Patts: Obsessions A-Go-Go and Kitten Club right next to it. They got a short time room for 500 Baht where you can get naughty with one of these top-notch ladyboys.
- Soi 13/1: Home to a couple of go go bars such as La Bamba Bar and Stringfellows many of them being actually run by ladyboys themselves.
- Soi Buakhao: This area has become one of Pattaya’s big ladyboy hot spots during the last few years and you can find half a dozen or so ladyboy bars – if you want to know my favorite here: Baby Boom at the end of a very short and quiet alley off Soi Buakhao. Don’t be surprised when you come there and you are the only customer, then what you get is a private dance show and the undivided attention of the hottest ladyboys in Buakhao.
Prices: Similar to the girls go go bars, a lot of these places also offer draft beer cheaper than the bottles but not in the 60 Baht range, it’s more like 105 Baht like in Obsessions. Lady drinks are in the 145-160 Baht range. The bar fine is different from place to place, between 500 and 800 Baht. Short Time / Long Time? As always negotiable, 1,000 Baht for ST maybe 1,500 if she’s post-op.
Happy Ending Ladyboy Massage in Pattaya
If you’re out for a quick hand job or blow job then just take a walk to Soi 13/1 or 13/2 at any time of the day. These 200m long alleys running from Second Road to Beach Road are full of massage salons and even though there are no ladyboy-only places, a lot of those salons have plenty of hot shemales that provide you with a happy ending for a tip of 300 or 500 Baht. And besides that, the massage as such from kathoeys is much better than from many young Thai girls who even tell you at times that they “nuat mai bpen” (cannot do massage).
There is one ladyboy only massage with really hot chicks on Second Road between Soi 13/2 and 13/3. Without doubt the number one in this category.
Prices: 300 Baht for Thai Massage / 400 Baht for Oil Massage.

Ladyboy Freelancers in Pattaya
There are three types of ladyboy freelancers: You’ve got the street hookers of which the majority frequent the beach promenade, especially in the area between Soi 13/4 and the Royal Garden Plaza. Two other popular spots to find them is Soi Buakhao as well as the center of Walking Street. The second type are the ladyboys you meet in the nightclubs, however only a few places allow them to enter. The hotspot these days is the Marine Disco on Walking Street (late at night). And the third type are the ladyboys who discretely meet their guys on the online dating sites, see below.
Prices: Not more than 1,000 Baht for a short time.
An increasingly popular way for foreigners to meet ladyboys in Pattaya, especially for the first-timers or the ones who don’t want to be seen with their hook-up in public, are the ladyboy dating sites. By far the most popular dating site is Thai Friendly. There are literally thousands of ladyboys online every day and you can make a search like “ladyboy only, age 22-28, lives in Pattaya, online now” etc. The site is structured very well and the owners do a great job managing it so you don’t get any spam messages or fake profiles.
Prices: The great thing about arranging dates with Thai Friendly is that you usually don’t need to pay anything for sex. You just take her for dinner and after that you invite her to “watch a movie” in your room.
So What’s The Best Way to Meet a Ladyboy in Pattaya?
Each of these different ways has their own pros and cons. While taking a ladyboy from the beer bar or go go bar is still very popular, it’s also the most expensive way since you need to pay your drinks, her drinks, the bar fine as well as the price for sex. A ladyboy massage is significantly cheaper, but you only get to spend an hour with her, maximum.
If you go for a freelancer, it’s generally good value for money as you don’t need to pay a third party (bar fine) but it also holds some risk as in case she steals from you it’s almost impossible to find her. So if you look for a safe and cheap hook up especially with non-prostitutes then it’s a great idea to just arrange your own date with the online dating site.
