How to Hook Up with a Ladyboy in Bangkok

Last updated: December 11th, 2018 | in Bangkok | Ladyboys | Thai Girls

Hot Thai LadyboyEvery guy coming to Thailand at least thinks about having a sexual experience with a Thai ladyboy. In a lot of cases you may even take one back to your room assuming she’s a girl.

If you don’t want to follow the obviously stupid rule of “if she’s too beautiful to be a girl she must be a ladyboy” check out this article for some easy ways to figure out the difference between a Thai girl and ladyboy.

The Thai word for transvestite is kàtoey (กะเทย). So if you want to ask her in Thai if she’s a ladyboy, you would say: “kun bpen kàtoey mǎi” (คุณเป็นกะเทยมั้ย). As always, adding the particle kráp (ครับ) at the end of the sentence would make your question more polite.

You might also learn another useful phrase if you want to ask her if she has already been undergoing a genital reassignment surgery: “kun tam sàláyá-gaam bplɛɛng pɛ̂ɛt rʉ̆ʉ yang” (คุณทำศัลยกรรมแปลงเพศหรือยัง). If she answers “tam lɛ́ɛo” (ทำแล้ว) it means she has done the surgery (literally: do already) and if she goes “yang mâi dâai tam” (ยังไม่ได้ทำ) it means she hasn’t (literally: yet not done). Like this you avoid facing a dick instead of a pussy (if you do try to avoid it).

You probably won’t be surprised if I tell you that Bangkok in general and Sukhumvit in particular has the highest concentration of foreigner-oriented ladyboys in Thailand. There are hundreds of single Thai ladyboys in Bangkok that are ready for a sexual adventure with you on a daily basis.

If you do decide to give the supposedly world’s most beautiful transvestites a try, you might be unsure about how you go about arranging your date, how much it costs (if at all) and which risks are involved in banging a Thai ladyboy. Continue reading, below are the answers to all of your questions.

There are generally five different ways of getting laid with a ladyboy in Bangkok, all with its own advantages and disadvantages: Ladyboy bar girl at one of Bangkok’s three red light districts, street hooker in Sukhumvit, massage ladyboy, online escort service or you arrange your own date, for example on a Thai Online Dating Site.

Ladyboy Bar Girls

Ladyboys in Bangkok

I have done some field research on a couple of evenings this week to check out the vibe a the ladyboy go-gos as well as the costs for taking one back to your room.

I’m not the biggest fan of Patpong (mainly because there are so many scams and rip-offs, a lot of them related to pingpong shows) but there’s the famous King’s Castle 3 go go bar (next to Pussy Collection on Patpong 1) that has also been a film location of the Hangover Part 2 movie, it has a few dozen hot ladyboys, some of them pre-op and some of them post-op so ask if you are about taking one home.

Nana Plaza has still the most ladyboy go go bars and the best ones include Obsession on the ground floor and Temptations and Casanova on the second floor. Casanova is probably the best ladyboy go go bar in Bangkok, the dancers are pretty damn hot, and almost all off them got huge and stunning boobs.

There is only one ladyboy go go bar on Soi Cowboy and you can imagine that it draws a lot of attention: Cockatoo. It’s rather small with just one medium-sized stage that has five ladyboys dancing. As I walked in there last night the ladyboys were literally running towards me, three of them were jumping down from the stage so I was quickly surrounded by about a dozen of half-naked ladyboys, all of them enthusiastically fighting for me allowing them to hang out together. Definitely fun.

  • Prices: Drinks are usually 140 or 145 Baht (beers and spirits), and it’s the same price for lady drinks. The standard bar fine is currently 600 Baht and the Ladyboys charge between 1,500 and 2,000 Baht for short time. At Nana Plaza, they even offer rooms (350 Baht) on the top floor of the building. If you are interested, you can ask if she does both “passive and active” services – usually she will do, if she can.

Ladyboy Massage

Massage Ladyboy in BangkokThe next way to meet Bangkok ladyboys for paid pleasure is to go to the massage salons. It’s important that you know where these are located as most places have only girls employed. The main areas with massage ladyboys are Sukhumvit Road between Soi 5 and Soi 7, Suhkumvit Soi 4 and the little alley connecting Soi 11 and Soi 13. They aren’t usually as attractive as in the go go bars or dating sites but if you look around for a while it’s quite possible to find a gem.

  • Prices: The standard rates for ladyboy massage in Bangkok are slightly higher than for the girls: It’s usually 400 Baht for a Thai Massage and 500 or even 600 Baht for a Oil Massage – of course you should choose the latter one if you want a happy ending, means hand job, for an additional tip. They can be quite hard to negotiate with and demand 1,000 Baht for the hand job and it can take some work to bargain it down to the standard 500 Baht. Blow jobs and sex are also frequently offered for a tip of 1,000 to 2,000 Baht.

Ladyboy Street Hookers

If you walk down Sukhumvit Road (Thanon Sukhumvit) any day of the week from around 7pm on the right hand side (where the night market is) from Asok BTS past Nana BTS to Sukhumvit Soi 3, you will pass by countless of street hookers, most of them are women and I’d say around 20% are ladyboys. Even if you are not interested and just look in their eyes, usually they try to touch and talk to you. Most of them are gathering on darker spots on the side of the walkway but then you even have like a dozen of street hookers right in front of the fountain at the main entrance of the famous five-star Sofitel Bangkok luxury hotel.

However the highest concentration of ladyboy street hookers you can find all along Sukhumvit Soi 4, probably Bangkok’s most sinful street. It’s known as the beer bar capital of Bangkok and there’s also Nana Plaza about 50m down the Soi on the left hand side. Just as if there wasn’t anymore space to stand for the girls and ladyboys inside the bars, there are easily more than a hundred street hookers hanging out on the walkway. Means you can just walk down from the Sukhumvit road junction for about 300m to Hillary Bar 1 and see what you like.

  • Prices: The going rates are 1,000 or 1,500 Baht for short time, usually they will also offer you a short time hotel room for 350 Baht which makes it more convenient for both of you – you will not have to worry about your belongings in your room and she can return to the street quicker, continuing working.

Thai Friendly Dating Site

Ladyboy Escorts

The most convenient option to get laid with a ladyboy in Bangkok: You just book a girl and she comes to your place. It takes between 30 minutes and 2 hours for her to arrive, obviously depending on the distance between your and her place as well as the traffic situation. Simply go online and open one of the ladyboy escort sites, such as Smooci.

Just as with women escort sites, they have a very nice design and are easy to navigate. The most two important pages are usually very easy to find: Girls (some even put the full gallery on their homepage) and Rates. Both pre-op and post-op ladyboys are available, so check on her “status” before booking.

  • Prices: You are generally required to book a ladyboy escort for at least 2 hours and the price includes 2 shots. The standard rate for this is 6,000 Baht (and yes, slightly more expensive than women escorts where rates often start at 4,000 Baht for 2 hours). Obviously the longer the service is, the cheaper the rate gets per hour, means 4 hours cost 8,000 Baht and a full day 15,000 Baht. You are usually required to pay the “service fee” directly to the girl once she arrives. Advance payments via PayPal or credit card are usually possible, too. Tips of a few hundred Baht are not mandatory, but appreciated.

Bangkok Ladyboy on Dating SiteArrange your own date

If you haven’t used an online dating site in Thailand yet you wouldn’t believe how many hot chicks there are waiting for your message. It is super easy to arrange dates with Thai girls and ladyboys online. The best online dating site for arranging a date with a Thai ladyboy is definitely Thai Friendly. It is not just extremely well structured with filter searches like ladyboys only, age, weight, city, education and last active, it also doesn’t have any fake profiles means the admins really make sure you don’t receive any spam messages.

  • Prices: Usually free if you arrange a normal date like dinner, sometimes they do ask you to pay them like 500 or 1,000 Baht. Don’t pay if you haven’t talked about it in advance. If she does get mad even though you haven’t talked about money, hand her a few hundred Baht to chill her down, but not one thousand or more.

What’s Your Best Option?

You see each method has its own advantages and disadvantages. While renting a ladyboy from a go go bar is generally the safest option its also quite costly as you have to pay the bar fine, her own charge as well as a couple of (lady) drinks in the bar itself. You will save a lot of time and effort by just ordering a ladyboy via online escort, but then that’s your most expensive option and you don’t get to see her in real until she’s booked and standing in front of your door.

The other two ways are a lot cheaper, but then also riskier as you might not know where to find her in case there are some problems like she steals from you. You can definitely find a pretty good deal by looking for a street hooker or massage ladyboy but if you aren’t into prostitutes at all, you can easily arrange a date via an online dating site or just go in a regular nightclub in Sukhumvit and see what’s available.

    Ladyboys possess the physical characteristics of women therefore, when a man falls for a ladyboy it’s because he sees her as a female, I mean because of the feminity she has. For those who believe in the traditional and old belief, you have to be oriented with an apt information about this certain kind of topic. just because a straight man likes or admires a ladyboy doesn’t mean that he is gay.

  • Kake gram says:

    my brother sneaks to Bangkok and denies that he like the ladyboys, but has magazine loaded with them. I already know he has a secret. every freaking 2 months he goes there. he is really in the closet and undercover fag

    • Audry says:

      Guys who love ladtboys are not gays

      • lorcis says:

        yeah, i like girls and ladyboys, i dont like men. ladyboys to me, seem like girls, not men, even though they have a dick.
        perhaps a dick is not thje defining measure of gender.
        i do not consider myself gay at all.

    • Nelson says:

      Your brother likes ladyboys, not men. There is a big different about being attracted to ladyboys vs men. I love ladyboys but I do not love men. Say what you will but ladyboys are not men.

    • David says:

      There is a very big difference between men who like boys and men who enjoy ladyboys. Just as a gay man would never sleep with a ladyboy. It’s about loving a certain type of femininity which is often more prevalent than genetic females. They are incredibly loyal and loving and make very devoted partners. Not to mention that women in western cultures are steadily becoming increasingly obese and expect men to endure the role of traditional male and female with little payoff especially sexually. These factors along with a desire to feel loved and needed make a trans girl very desirable to many men who still consider themselves heterosexual and rightfully so.

      • shhs says:

        Totally right David, many transgender women like myself are incredibly loyal loving and eager to please. Not to mention very very feminine. I am often asked if I am a model and if I tell people I am trans they often won’t believe it. I have never met a gay man interested in me.

    • Adam says:

      Haven’t you heard? Traps aren’t gay.

  • Brad says:

    Any of you guys consider marrying a thai ladyboy?

    • Don says:

      If I met the right one absolutely. They are amazing girls really, they love to take care of there man’s needs and they love sex as much as us men do. No monthly red flags and emotional outbursts like with women. Although they can be jealous. Of course there’s still a stigma about it but the sex is so fricken good it’s worth it

    • lorcis says:

      i have not but i easily could, a ladyboy for me is a lady, not a man, and love can lead to marriage.

    • David says:

      Absolutely I would consider it. They are so very sweet and loving. Not to mention many of them are actually virgins. My trans girl is from Philippines and had never even kissed another person even at the age of 20. They are very devoted and full of love, compassion and familial obligation. They will wait several years for the right person if you make a point of frequent daily communication, especially video chat. Never discount their worthiness of being a suitable life partner. Good luck to you brother!

    If you want to meet a ladyboy, be very careful when looking for advises in fora dealing with the subject. These fora are invaded by parasites who will make you believe that you need one of them as a wingman to visit places around Pattaya or Bangkok.
    Such wingmen have agreements with bar managers to get their share on the money they will make you spend. They also cheat you on an important point : you can find friendly ladyboys in the street or in websites like badoo or thaifriendly without having to spend money in their system.

    The only difference with classical tourist traps is that they are farangs and not Thai.

    • lorcis says:

      that happened to me, on my first night in pattaya i picked up a nice looking lady ( a female not a ladyboy ) and all she did was walk me through the girly bars, later i realised that she was doing what you just described. i did like her, i spent some money in the bars, bought her a meal and had sex with here, we met a few times until i left thailand after 10 days, i want more :)

      • David says:

        Always find one on a dating site like mentioned in this guide then travel. you can have them rent an apartment for very cheap. Plus their family will be very accommodating. Hotels and brothels are for tourists that want their money to evaporate

  • seoulman says:

    Very good advice on this board, however just my two cents. I have noticed a trend lately in Bangkok and Pattaya-Filipinas ladyboys and their English skills are better and Thus chemistry can work better. Try craidslist too, many of them also post there. All methods discussed here work, but with ladyboys or lady, for me personally I like to have a little chemistry. One thing you should always do if possible is look for reviews or talk with others so you can avoid some of the problematic ones. As discussed previously, I have witnessed very entusiastic girls in the bar who turn out to be a dud in the bedroom. If dancing wildly, enthusiasticlly for avfew hours in the bar, how energetic will you be in bed? Throw in a few drinks and you could be inviting trouble! One word of caution-avoid confrontation, leave your ego back in your homeland. If things go south a couple to few hundred baht is not worth having the Thai police involved or worse yet getting fucked up. Ladyboys are MEN and the girls have boyfriends and brothers. Overall after 70 trios or more I have only had 2-3 issues, so it’s safe but the possibility of getting into trouble is ther if you get out of control.

  • Tinman says:

    I was just on my way to a 7/11 about 9:30am and got stopped by a very attractive blonde ladyboy called Lilly.. Never been with one but as she held my arm something just felt right and ended up in a short time room around the corner for some owo and it was bloody good, also got on top and doggy finished up with Cim…. Blimey I might pop out tomorrow morning again….

  • stuart says:

    is that alley way still there , i thought it was destroyed for building work ?

  • Josh says:

    Yes, it’s checkin bar with some amazing girls.. Soi 11 down a little alley way.

  • stephen e. hansen says:

    these are fun bars to visit when i’m away from the wife in portola valley.

  • George says:

    A very discreet bar is located in an alleyway on soi 7 ( just off sukhumvit road) i think it is called check bar or check in bar . I mostly pick up ladyboys via the net , however since i stumbled on this bar i have been back a few times . Some gorgeous looking babes there too . There are rooms to take the gurls to as well .

  • Vic says:

    I’ve taken girls from the street, from Nana (gogos) and used escort agencies. Of the three methods I’d definitely recommend the escort services.

    Taking ladyboys from the street is obviously the cheapest option, but it can be very hit and miss, and often more miss than hit. You’ve really got to know what you are doing and what to look out for.

    Taking ladyboys from the bars is a great way to insure the chemistry is there before you pick your date, but from my experience many ladyboys will speak a good game in the bar and tell you what you want to hear, but then it’s a different story in the bedroom and they seem to change attitude and get lazy once you’re a sure thing.

    I prefer the agencies because I can tell them exactly what I want, how I want the girls to dress, act, and even behave, and they will insure I get the right girls. Any problems and I can contact the agency and they will help correct it. I’m not saying it always works perfect but on the occasions I’ve disliked a girl or she’s failed to deliver the agency have quickly replaced her for me.

    Yes, agencies are a little more expensive, but going to the bars is sometimes more expensive when you add on the price of drinks, lady drinks and bar fines.

    • Thailand-Bound Newb says:

      Which agencies have you checked out? How much do they charge?

      Is it possible to negotiate for different ones for different nights or have one for an entire week?

      Let me know because I plan on visiting the ladyboy scene soon.
