Nightlife & Thai Girls in Phuket

Last updated: December 11th, 2018 | in Nightlife | Phuket | Southern Thailand | Thai Girls

Phuket is world famous not just for all the beautiful beaches and day trips but especially for its infamous nightlife that attracts both young Thai girls from the remotest corners of the country (such as Isaan) as well as male foreign tourists and expats that find their paradise here when they can live out their sexual fantasies in the scene of this tropical wonderland.

Phuket Nightlife

The range of nightlife venues as well as the different types on how to hook up with Thai girls in Phuket are as diverse as in the other nightlife hotspots in Thailand like Bangkok and Pattaya. There are countless of beer bars, go go bars, happy ending massage parlors, soapy massage parlors, nightclubs, street hookers etc. Not even mentioning all the Farang-friendly Thai gals with “regular” jobs that are super easy to arrange dates with on Thai Cupid.

Phuket Nightlife Overview

If you’re coming to Phuket for partying and the girls, the best place to stay is definitely Patong Beach. It’s home of the infamous Bangla Road with countless of go go bars, beer bars and the island’s best nightclubs. Leave alone all the massage shops and many many more bars spread all over the place.

Pink Lady PhuketNeighboring Karon Beach ranks no. 2 in the nightlife scene and offers dozens of beer bars and (by now even more) dirty massage shops. Kata Beach is similar but rather low key and the options way more limited, and all other beach towns in Phuket may look nice on the postcard but they are more relaxing than fun as they don’t have to offer more than a handful of bars.

Phuket Town, the capital of the province on the eastern side of the island does have a lot of bars, night clubs and Thai style karaoke and coyote places (such as Pink Lady on Phang Nga Road near the bus station). The main bar area in Phuket Town can be found along Ratsada Road with mainly local Thais partying and very few foreigners.

Beer Bars in Phuket

As already explained 80-90% of all beer bars in Phuket can be found in Patong. And again the majority of beer bars in Patong are located on Bangla Road and on the various Sois north of it, as well as on the very southern end of the beach road (see the exact locations on the map below). They are usually equipped not just with sexy Thai girls but also with pool tables (20 Baht a game) and TV screens showing live sports.

Phuket Beer BarThe concept is easy: You take a seat and order a drink that’s usually fairly cheap (70-90 Baht per bottle of beer). It won’t take long until one of the girls comes to you and starts small talk “Hey, how are you, what’s your name, where you from, you come to Phuket for holiday?” After a while she will ask you for a lady drink which averages 200 Baht in Patong (slightly cheaper in Karon & Kata around 150 Baht).

Of course you may take out girls from the bar and then you’ll have to pay a bar fine (around 600 Baht). The price for short time (one shot) / long time (several shots, usually until the next morning) has to be negotiated with the girl. The going rates are 1,000 – 2,000 Baht for ST and 2,000 to 4,000 Baht for LT.

Go Go Bars in Phuket

Phuket Go Go GirlsNo visit to Phuket without checking out the Go Go Bars. They are all located along Bangla Road and its side Sois in Patong. They generally don’t have admission fees (it’s different for the dedicated Ping Pong show venues, then they ask for like 800 Baht for a beer). You just go inside, find a nice seat to watch the girls dancing on stage, order your drink, relax and enjoy. Some places have drink specials for 99 Baht, otherwise prices range between 160 and 200 Baht. Lady drinks in Phuket’s Go Go Bars are among the priciest in Thailand, usually between 200 and 250 Baht. Similar for the short time rate that’s hard to negotiate below 2,000 Baht and Bar Fines between 800 and 2,600 (!) Baht. Since the offer of Go Go Bars in Patong is huge and their quality very different:

Night Clubs in Phuket

Phuket Night Club GirlsPatong has a diverse night club scene and every place tries to attract as many Thai ladies as possible (free entrance, free drinks etc.). Not just the “normal” girls like students or girls with regular jobs but also freelancers and all the chicks from the beer bars, go go bars and massage shops that come to party in the clubs after finishing work. Most night clubs in Patong have no cover charge while some ask for 200 or 300 Baht with that price including one free drink.

The best night clubs are all conveniently located in the Bangla Road area: Tai Pan Night Club, Tiger Disco & Illuzion.

There are also quite a few clubs in Phuket town such as Sound and Comics that mainly cater to the local Thais but can be fun for you as a foreigner too.

Soapy Massage Parlors in Phuket

Even though the range of Soapy Massage Parlors in Phuket isn’t nearly as huge as in Bangkok, Pattaya and Chiang Mai – there are a couple of places that you can spend a couple of hours and feel like in heaven.

Patong Soapy MassageChristin Massage is the biggest and most famous soapy in Phuket. It’s the huge pink building you cannot miss on Thanon Ratuthit. The fishbowl is quite spacious but unfortunately the seating area isn’t, so just go right in front of the glass and choose a girl you like. The selection is excellent even in the early afternoon. They used to divide the girls into three categories but now it’s one price for everyone: 3,300 Baht for the full 1.5 hour program. Seems pricey, but the girls are extremely hot and make sure you have an awesome time so it’s worth it if you compare it to what you normally pay for an average looking go go dancer.

Phuket Town Soapy MassageMost of the soapy massage parlors in Phuket Town are closed now (including the Grand Plaza, I checked). The one place that is still up and running can be found at the Pearl Hotel and is simply called what it is: Aap-Op-Nuat (อาบอบนวด, bath, steam, massage). The selection and quality of girls isn’t nearly as great as in Christin’s, no seating area and the rooms are rather small and creepy. The price is 2,600 Baht for all girls, 1.5 hours including everything. The main reason for picking the Pearl Hotel over Christin’s is that the place doesn’t see a lot of Farangs so it can be a more exciting experience with these girls.

Happy Ending Massage in Phuket

Phuket Happy Ending MassageBesides the soapy massage parlors there are countless of small happy ending massage shops spread all around the beach towns. Especially in Patong, it’s safe to say that there are now even more of these massage shops than beer bars! Well seems like a lot of girls prefer to just sit and wait for customers while playing on their phones instead of getting bellies by drinking coke and beer all day. Standard rates are 250 Baht for Thai massage and 300 Baht for Oil massage (1 hour). Extras have to be negotiated with the girls, it’s generally 300-500 Baht for hand job, 500-800 Baht for blow job and 800-1,500 Baht for sex (the latter two are not always offered).

Ladyboys in Phuket

Ladyboy in PhuketI know most of you guys don’t like it when I talk about ladyboys here on Thailand Redcat, but I just noticed that more and more tourists think about trying their services. Thailand is world famous for its shemales, and of course Phuket is one of the main hot spots to meet them. These ladyboys work in the same types of places like the girls – beer bars, massage salons, night clubs, on the streets etc. I thought it’s the best idea to cover that topic in a separate guide:

Street Hookers in Phuket

Phuket Street HookersYou can save a few hundred Baht avoiding bar fines and getting slightly cheaper rates by picking up a (rather average looking) street hooker on Patong Beach right opposite the entrance to Bangla Road. They usually ask for 1,000 Baht but it’s not hard to get it down to 700 or 800 Baht. Some also do hand jobs on a quiet spot right on the beach for as low as 200-300 Baht.

Another popular area for street hookers is at the clock tower in Phuket Town.

    I kinda got scammed yesterday. One old mamasan was pushing me to get one of her girls. I gave in and she brought me to a short time hotel. I paid 1000b for hotel. Funny thing is mamasan entered the room with girl too. She is fucking old and fat and ugly. She started stripping too, but I paid 1000b already for hotel so I just waited to see what goes on. Ended up is the fat woman giving me bj and sex while the hot girl just let me touch her. I thought I get to fuck hot girl afterwards but after I cum they got very aggressive. They insisted I pay 1500b EACH when they said 1500b only at first. I just threw them 1500b and quickly escaped. They threatened to call their boss etc but I wasn’t intimidated. Luckily I was a guy and they tried to block the door but couldn’t. Ended up wasting 2500b fucking an old woman and touching a young one. Talk about an exciting threesome. But well 2500b might not even get you anything decent in phuket nowadays. I just took it as a lesson Learnt. Mr Hong Kong below had it worst and lost 15000b. I got lucky I guess

    I’m at Patong right now. Everything overpriced everywhere. Even not beautiful girls asking for 2000 baht for short time. Massage parlours not less than one thousand for an oil massage plus happy ending. Small beers 150 baht in some touristic spot. Common,that’s extorsive, Pattaya is a way better.

  • No more Patong says:

    Hi Bangkok112 and other reader, sorry for my english, i am HongKongese, i just got extort from Patong and lose 15000b, i call the police as well, and share my story here for alert.
    This start on bangla street just locate on the sai dragon, a street hooker attract me, and i am really don’t think he is LB at that time (although i go thai 8 times), he body,face, sound really a lady.

    When the “lady” go to my room, she go to toilet, i start to feel some strange , she not take off her cloth ,but had a cigarette instead.
    Few minute later, someone knock my door and the LB in my room open the door in very quick !!!!
    2 more LB come to my room, i start to know what happening!!!

    They told me go to bathroom have a bath and dont go out!
    I start to fight with them! yes ! only me and 3LB, definitely i lose but they get the knife in handbag!
    Finally i paid all my money about 15000b to them, they want my mobile phone as well, but luckily my phone is a cheap phone from china, finally they go away.

    I stay on PS Hotel just next to C&N hotel, i shout at the staff on counter how come let 2 stranger to my room, the guy explain if the guest register by id card , that fine to visit, i don’t accept that, he said many westerner like LB, 3P as well as 4P.

    I go to the patong find the tourist police, they take me to police box in patong bench, but really it not help!
    The police said it happen everyday, just record down my “story”, passport # etc, they said they will get the ID card or camera record from PS hotel.

    last night i go to Tiger bar and told what just happen to the girl that i quite familiar , she said never get LB to hotel and they are a number of gang to extort the traveller.
    It happen in long time, and every local of patong know that.

    PS Hotel have a serious security problem, just 2 guys working overnight, no security guard.
    Finally I request the print of those 3 LB ID card, and i want find the police again on airport, the guy have blur their face!

    Most of the street hooters in Patong are ladyboys or fat ugly girls. Nothing to compare with Pattaya. Bar girls are too “pushy” to buy them drinks etc… Massage parlours are many but mainly with old or ugly staff… Patong is only for a couple of days with friends to drink beers or with your girlfriend. For mongering go to Pattaya only. Not even Bangkok.

    • papa says:

      agree! i am on patong now, today is 2nd days and i cant get the girl because the quality of girl is not good, moat of them dark or lb . i had go to patong 5 times already, i can say patong is falling. if you want hapoy ending, go bangkok

  • A.j says:

    Why so many discouraging reviews? ..I am planning a trip for january ..i have no prob with 2500 baht …hell ill throw a 600 baht tip as well can i expect a goid attitude though? My biggest problem with western industry women is its 1 and with a lame attitude..not looking for love or a girlfriend but a bad attitude is a buzzkill..

    • pest says:

      Best you head to Chalong just off the roundabout 15 bars mixed bag but good looking ones last night were asking 1500 for a short time upstairs

  • Sam says:

    Well the discos are there but u gotta haggle in a decent way; I chose a girl bought her a drink & asked her point blank no beating around the bushes; I prefer freelancers; my only advise is if the girl likes u & approaches u then u r for a treat, on if she likes u or trying to make a quick buck. I agree the price in offseason 2k-3k LT for pretty girls r OK I suppose. Freelancers in discos are plenty.

  • Joseph says:

    Update on the beer bars barfine: Most bars along Bangla Road in Patong are now charging around 1.500 baht barfine.
    Ladies asks for 2.000-3.000 baht for Short Time (one hour).

    Ad a few lady drinks and you are above 5.000 baht for a one hour short time!

    Same price or even more expensive than many western countries.

    Also some bars do not let the girl be barfined if the customer did´nt buy the lady a few drinks before trying to barfine her.

    Patong is not a good place for mongering anymore!

  • 24moskito says:

    Just a little information about the “normal” way of paying a hooker… Thaimen take hookers too but they will NEVER pay anything in advance like stupid farang do.
    Normal price for short time was 500.-Baht (about 12EURo) and IF the girl worked good she get some TIP extra, if she work bad or only laying down like a stone and let you do all the work, they will never give her more than 300.-B

    So be honest to yourself, if you agree to 2000 Baht upfront, WHY t.f. she should work for it after? She get the money anyways ;) keep that in mind for your next visit

  • 24moskito says:

    Thank god my wild times are at least 15 years past, when it was fun to go out for a beer, take a lady who played a couple of games with you before instead looking in her smartphone all the time and paid 200 Baht Barfine and 500-1000 night for the girl…up to you…

    Farang (white foreigners) messed up the prices here and since they brought a lot of hookers back to Europe the girls know already the prices there.

    living here since close to 20years I can tell you, if you just come for the hookers, its not worth it anymore, but IF so, come in lowseason between End of May until End of October, may be the weather is shit sometimes but the girls are more “hungry” than ;)

    Phuket is definetely NOT the place to go anymore for some cheap fun, Girls are well overpriced for what they have to offer, most of the time watching their Smartphones. Once they managed to bring you into the beerbar you are not intresting more as the new facebook message…

    however, have fun and share your experiences :)

    Update on Christin Massage. The price has gone up and the time has gone down. Now 3300baht for 75mins. Not only this, when i mentioned the time had shortened to the girl i took, she said if you shoot, that’s it, finish. No kissing, no oral (aside from the bj with a condom). Selection was average.
    The actual soapy massage was great but the rest was substandard. Needless to say when she asked if i had anything extra for her…i declined.

    • Stefan says:

      How safe the girls are at Christine massage?? Do they have periodic check for HIV or other STD’s?

      • Kalle Svensk says:

        Safe ?
        How could a checkup make anything safe, you never know what happened five minutes ago.
        The only thing that makes it safe is a condom!

          2018 update on Christin.
          been visiting for years but this was my last time I think. I said that about Phuket last time I came.

          Everything was rushed, no more than 35 minutes in the room. Hardly enjoyed the bath and airbed before it was finished.

          Girl was focused totally on speed and I got left to go out by myself through the ground floor massage. It wasnt always like this…
          Didn’t enjoy at all.
