Nightlife & Thai Girls in Udon Thani

Last updated: March 26th, 2020 | in Isaan | Nightlife | Thai Girls | Udon Thani

Girl in Udon ThaniUdon Thani is without any doubt the biggest sexual playground for Farangs in Isaan. It just has something for everyone with two big complexes packed with beer bars, several “ordinary” bars, karaoke places, massage shops, a couple of nightclubs and a night market. Most of these Farang oriented nightlife spots are conveniently located within walking distance in the center of town near Central Plaza shopping mall.

Another great thing about the nightlife in Udon Thani is that the supply of girls by far always outnumbers the demand. Even in high season you will find a fairly relaxed atmosphere while most foreigners are heading to the bars of Bangkok, Pattaya and Phuket. The consequence is that sex in Udon Thani is among the best value in Thailand regarding bar fines and short time / long time rates.

Apart from hookers you also get a lot of attention from the “normal” Thai girls with regular jobs. Just by walking around Central Plaza you will soon notice the difference as compared to like Central World in Bangkok. Girls are looking and smiling at you as a foreigner and happy to chat with you as opposed to Bangkok where girls often seem stressed or even scared of Farangs. It’s super easy to arrange dates with girls in Udon – just by walking around and talking to people or by using one of the online dating sites.

Below is the complete guide to nightlife in Udon Thani as well as the exact locations of the venues:

Girly Bars in Udon Thani

There are two main areas for girly bars (or more commonly called beer bars) in Udon Thani and they are located just 5 minutes walk from each other. They are called Day & Night and Nutty Park. The bars have local girls working who hang out with male customers buying them drinks, playing pool or other games, watching football on the TV screen or just chilling and chatting. Plenty of more bars can be found all along Soi Samphan Thamit right outside of Day & Night.

Drinks are fairly cheap with beers for 60-80 Baht and pool games are usually free. Lady drinks are obviously a bit pricier generally around 120 Baht. The bar fine is 300 Baht at all beer bars and that’s the cheapest in Thailand. Similar to short time rates averaging 1,000 Baht and long time (overnight) 2,000 Baht. If you like Sukhumvit Soi 4 in Bangkok or Soi 7 in Pattaya, you are going to love Udon as the rates here are just half the price and the girls are less pushing and sketchy.

The beer bars open in the early afternoon however most girls start working at around 7-8pm. The bars close at 1am and many of the girls who haven’t found company are heading to the night clubs after (see below).

Day & Night

Day-Night-Udon-Thani

This is a huge building packed with about two dozen of beer bars. Day & Night is located on Soi Samphan Thamit just behind Central Plaza. There are also several other bars on this road that have freelancers or just ordinary girls hanging out.

Nutty Park

Udon-Thani-Beer-Bars

Nutty Park is the second girl bar hub in town, located near the night market on Prajak Sillapakom Road. It’s L-shaped so if you walk all the way through you will find the bars towards the end of the strip have less customers than near the main road. Generally there’s a more laid back atmosphere than at Day & Night, but of course you also get the “hey, handsome man” shouts from the sexy ladies trying to lure you in the bars and hang out with them.

Night Clubs in Udon Thani

Night Club in Udon Thani

The most popular Thai night club in Udon Thani is Tawan Daeng (see the picture above). It’s quite a big building right at the car entrance of Central Plaza. The set up is typical Thai club style with many small tables for groups sitting together and most of them opening a bottle of Red or Black. There is daily live music from around 10pm, local bands playing the Thai hits. Tawan Daeng might be a typical Thai night club but you do see quite a few Farangs partying here as the locals are easygoing and approachable.

Phoenix Pub in Udon ThaniThe newest night club in town is Phoenix, about 10 minutes walk from Central Plaza. It’s smaller than the other ones mentioned here, but very neat and super modern with the nicest lighting and laser show. You’ll see a good mix of local girls, local guys, tourists, expats as well as Farang-oriented hookers who give you lots of looks. They also got live music on stage every night. Prices are quite cheap for a night club with beers for 100 Baht, cocktails for 150 Baht and whiskey bottles from 450 Baht for Blend & Sang Som.

Yellow Bird Night ClubAnother hugely popular club is Yellow Bird at the back of the Charoen Hotel. That’s about 10-15 minutes walk from Central Plaza. It’s just a little smaller than Tawan Daeng but also has live music every night and gets packed especially on weekends. You don’t see many foreigners here, but instead some of the hottest Udon girls around. Like all other night clubs in town they have to close at 2am so if you want to open a bottle of whiskey (like 100 Pipers for 690 Baht, Red Label for 1,700 Baht, Draught Leo Pitcher for 280 Baht) and get a decent table it’s worth coming as early as 11pm.

And also clustered around Nutty Park, there are a couple of great night clubs. Well, they almost look like bars but the music is louder, they’ve got a small dance floor and close late. The best venue there is Sisters Bar and it’s the type of place that the girls from Day & Night and Nutty Park are going if they didn’t get bar fined out earlier the night. Go to these clubs any day from midnight onward and you’ll have the best chances to pick up a girl for the night without paying her any more than a couple of drinks.

Soapy Massage Parlors in Udon Thani

Soapy Massage Parlor in Udon ThaniThere is only one real soapy massage parlor (aap-op-nuat) in Udon Thani and that’s Oscar in the western part of town not too far from Nong Prajak Park. There are about 10-15 girls in the fishbowl and 3-5 sideliners on the red couch at most times. Prices are 1,600 Baht for the fishbowl girls and 1,900 Baht for the sideline girls. The atmosphere at Oscars is quite relaxed, you’ll see many Thai guys just hanging out for hours drinking beer before picking one of the girls (or not).

The papasan is very friendly, not pushing at all and does speak some basic English. The quality of girls may not be as great as in Bangkok, but there are a couple of young, white skinned and quite hot sideline girls, most of them have no children (you can ask the papasan of course). Otherwise quite an old building and same for the rooms that have seen better times, but it’s still alright and if you pick the right girl it’s definitely worth it.

Massage Parlor in Udon ThaniThe Grand Naga Hotel (formerly Tonkoon Hotel) is home of another massage parlor in Udon Thani. It’s not a soapy but has the type of fishbowl arrangement where girls are presenting themselves. You can have a drink first at one of the couches to make up your choice or just pick a girl straight away. Most of the girls are stunning hot and white skinned.

You can either take a Thai Massage for 380 Baht or an Oil Massage for 650 Baht (same price for all girls), both two hours in a private room with air conditioning and a TV. Extras are guaranteed but the tip has to be negotiated with the girl (don’t ask her straight away but wait until she is working her way closer and closer to the area between your legs).

Even though the place opens at noon, don’t make the mistake and come too early as most girls walk in at around 6pm just before sunset – including the top choices. The massage parlor closes at midnight.

Happy Ending Massage in Udon Thani

Udon Thani Happy Ending MassageThe other “ordinary” massage shops in Udon Thani are spread all around town, but the highest concentration can be found along Prajak Sillapakom Road around Nutty Park. The general rule of “if they wear short skirts they’ll be naughty” doesn’t really apply in Udon, so even if she seems very attracted and charming to you outside she might put on a different face inside and just do her massage while not being interested or just too shy to offer hand job, blow job or sex.

The standard price is 200 Baht for a Thai Massage and 300 Baht for an Oil Massage. It is really random and depends on the girl and how much she likes you to go beyond the standard massage and make it a happy ending one. The older the girl, the more likely it usually is that she’s willing to give you the special extra at the end of the session.

Hostess Bars in Udon Thani

Hostess Bar in Udon ThaniHostess bars are like the equivalent to the beer bars just oriented towards Thai men. However, that doesn’t mean that you aren’t welcome in these places as a Farang. It’s just that things work a little different to what you may be used to. The girls are among the hottest you can find in Udon, usually white skinned and thin.

Drink prices are similar to the beer bars, however lady drinks means shots usually cost 150 Baht and don’t be surprised if they ask for 5 shots at once. Also don’t be surprised when they aren’t sitting with you all the time and rather standing next to your table and even walking around. Also there is no bar fine at the hostess bars, but that isn’t really a problem since they are all closing at midnight so you can take them out or home afterwards.

The best bars in this category are Tiny, Pimp Niyom and UD Coffee Bar that is divided into karaoke and night club (or how the Thais say: pub).

Karaoke Bars in Udon Thani

Karaoke Bar in Udon Thani

In a lot of cities around Thailand and especially in Bangkok the karaoke bars are really oriented towards Thai guys and it’s likely for you to get ripped off or simply overcharged if you don’t speak Thai or don’t know how things are going in these places.

It’s different in Udon Thani where you have both local Thais and Farangs visiting the karaoke bars and the girls aren’t hesitate to sit with you even if their English is weak. Lady drinks are generally cheaper than in the beer bars (like 80 Baht for a coke or she just brings two glasses and you drink beer or whiskey together at no additional charge, usually there is also no extra charge for her sitting with you, which is quite a standard for karaoke bars in Thailand). Some girls can be taken out and if so, the bar fine is 300 Baht at most places.

There are several karaoke bars spread all around Udon, but the highest concentration can be found along Adulyadej Road, about 500m north of Central Plaza.

Street Hookers in Udon Thani

A bunch of freelancing women (usually well over 30) are hanging out at the intersection of Soi Samphan Thamit and Prajak Sillapakom late at night. In other words: The corner of the street leading from Day & Night to Nutty Park. They may not be the most attractive ones, but then you can’t really complain with rates of about 500 Baht for a quick short time.

Ladyboys in Udon Thani

Ladyboy in Udon ThaniUdon is the best place in all of Isaan to meet and sleep with sexy Ladyboys. It’s not just that this place has the highest number of them, but most of them are also super attractive. And even better, they are often hanging out in the same places as the girls, means in many girly bars (especially in Day & Night) and also in the night clubs (especially in Tawan Daeng). Apart from that, you’ll also find plenty of them hanging out or working in Central Plaza (see picture). They are generally more friendly, charming and easy going than in most other places in Thailand, especially Bangkok and Pattaya.

Udon Thani Night Market

Night Market in Udon Thani

Udon Thani’s night market is located on Prajak Sillapakom Road. What I like about it is that it’s mainly selling clothes and fashion rather than tourist souvenirs and cheap accessories. It’s a nice place to start your evening as there are also a lot of food stalls and even TV screens showing live sports.

    Ah.. I remember when I first read this article trying to make up my mind whether to go to Udon Thani or not about 6 months ago.

    Well, I’ve been twice now and I love Udon Thani… It took me a few days to get my bearings though. On the first night I went home alone haha. But I quickly adapted to the place and the girls began to trust me once they saw me around a few times. Now I hear my name being called from just about every bar as I walk passed, which presents challenges in it’s self. It’s hard to discreetly get away with being a butterfly in Udon as the night scene is not large and also a lot of the girls know each other.

    I find there are just enough girls there to keep it interesting and the occasional new face pops up from time to time too. It’s a laid back cozy little place. I am in my late 30’s and it suits me fine there. I actually prefer it over the craziness of Bangkok and Pattaya. For the (most part) the men young and old are not dickheads there. One bloke once said to me (you don’t come to Udon Thani to be a dickhead). I appreciate that.

    I’ll be heading back for my 3rd visit soon.

    • Michael says:

      I agree with this. Came to Udon in February and am back here now. It is a relaxed and fun place to spend a week or so. As Ben says, once the girls recognise you after a few days you can have a lot of fun – although I don’t take them back to my hotel just drink and play pool, I think that is definitely available if you “establish yourself” as described above.

  • john says:

    I went to udon. I found only the older girls and they had already been used in Bangkok or Pattaya so much that there was little demand there. They then return home to udon and work in prostitution. So it ‘s stupid to spend time and money visiting a place like udon there’ s nothing worth visiting

  • Gil de Tourette says:

    They want to have expensive lady drinks but won’t go indeed. It is a scam. Avoid this place! Go to Pattaya or Bangkok where MANY MANY girls from Udon are willing to suck your dick for 1,000 – 1,500 baht

    • Hugo says:

      Maybe you should go back to France where you can get a Muslim wearing a burqa or looking at your name you have Tourette syndrome and swear at everyone , french men have no respect for anyone in my experience

  • Gil de Tourette says:

    This is not the Udon Thani where I have been. I was at the one in northeast Thailand. You must have been somewhere else. Better than Bangkok for sex. Great joke mate!

  • Gil de Tourette says:

    So i have. Een to Udon and this is no place for mongering.
    The massage parlours have no pretty ladies and they want 300 baht for oil and 500 baht extra for handjob (she asked 700) or 1000 extra for a fuck (she asked 1200).
    Then the girls at Day and Night. I bought two pretty girls(both 21) a LD (150 / 190 (!) each), talked to them, asked them for ahort time, they both refused.
    Then I went to another bar, took a fatty girl for a LD. Asked her how much short time , she said 300 barfine and 2000 for her. I asked her can you make it cheaper a bit then a. Whole story about how expensive life is blah blah blah. I said goodbye, went home alone amd had a wank off in the shower.
    I will never ever visit this city again. Avoid!

    • Gil de Tourette says:

      Oh yes, the ladyboy who stands at the corner of the street (at the Central mall side) wants 500 baht. I am not into LBs but apparantly there is some cheap sex to be had.

  • Robert says:

    Just got back today (and counting down for the next visit – 14 weeks)..

    Day & Night is excellent. A little after midnight the roller shutters for most of the bars come down. Some will bring the guests inside the bar before rolling down the doors. I met a sweet girl at honey bar – about half way in on the right, short timed her and then went back for more drinks. I like to bang my girls sober and drink after. Repeated this the next night. After the rollers went down the girls and I played cards, with me as an observer at first. The game is a simple game and we were betting 20 baht at a time. I lost about 40 baht. It was a fun night and my girl brought me beers and did not want anything for it. Mamasan it was OK. Very good night, fun and good laughs.

    The girls are more difficult at the yellow bird because its mostly Thais and they don’t want to be seen walking out with a farang – especially an older guy like me.

    Nutty park was dead, I gave up after two walk throughs.

    At the end of the street is Vikings Bar, every time I went there i would bring back a ST girl. There was an extremely beautiful Thai / Filipino ladyboy there too if you like that.

    Around the corner from Vikings is Tawan Daeng. It was excellent, and the music was Isaan rock & roll – not bad.

  • Doug says:

    I am glad Redcat updated his web site. I just want to say that all the Sois in Udon are still closed. I go by the area often. There are a couple of new hostess bars, but I believe the local law states that venues which have outside bars or beer bars do not allow the hostess girls to sit down with customers. They stand or squat next to the customer’s table. There is a new one on the side of Tung Sri Muang. Also there are some new bars on the narrow road that connects Nong Prajak with the Ring Road. There is a nice hostess place there there called “Share Bar” Also a new one opened in the last couple of weeks near “Share Bar” This narrow road, is gradually becoming an interesting area for nightlife.

    Next, the karoake place you picture in your Udon section on Karoake bars has been closed and looks as though it will be torn down any day now. Also, a sing song venue that had been open for nearly 20 years. diagonally across from Toon Koon/Naga very recently closed. It has been replaced by a new bar called “20 and Up” There is an after hours bar in Udon, but I hesitate to name it for fear of putting heat on them.

    Finally, Redcat, is Pimp Niyom part of UD Coffee shop? I went there a few nights ago and had a great time. I see inside UD coffee shop, one part is UD Pub (the old name) and another part is the “Secret Bar” I did not see Pimp Niyom. Also, I checked the pink pins on your map and two pins say Pimp Niyom, so I am not sure. I have a hunch that the shots at UD coffee shop they give the girls when they serve beer may be water. I did not test it but it may be that the “shots” are props and not really alcohol, but function as a cover for diverting money to the hostess girls. The action I received could not have been for free. Also unique about this place is that they have you sign the bill each time a round is served. Hope you have time to answer about Pimp Niyom. Really like your web site and will take a run to Nong Khai soon.

    If anyone wants more details about UD coffee shop, let me know

  • Robert says:

    Day & Night

    I thought it was quite good, but be warned the officials do come along it midnight and it is closed within a very short time ! The girls are quite attractive, and relaxed friendly. One was cheeky enough to ask 2,000 for short time – she was very attractive, but not 2,000 baht attractive ! .The one I chose wanted 1,400 and I went to a small shop across the road and bought condoms. They would have fitted a midget if you were very lucky and about as thick as a wetsuit. Destroyed the experience, the girl did try her best however. She weighed only 38kgs and had the best tits I have seen in a very long time ! Took her back to the bar afterwards and spent about an hour chatting to her. I bought a few drinks and she did not ask for any LD’s. She was a bit apologetic, but it was not her fault.

    This February will be my 3rd visit to Udon Thani. Always stay at least one month. Always stay at the Centara Hotel in a Deluxe room for about $50 a night including morning buffet breakfast. Room is clean, beautiful, and nice bathroom with nice shower. I go to Udon Thani for two reasons. Target rich environment, just gorgeous girls as wonderful a girlfriend as you could dream for next to going to Shangra La. The street food and outdoor restaurants are just great. Very Very safe environment, you will never be bothered by anyone in this wonderful place. Many a visitor goes to visit and ends up with a trophy wife living there or back in his country or both. Don’t look for other then what it is, a Farangs dream stop, and that stop many times turns into a permanent stop for life. I’m 68 years old and what a place. I feel like a young man when I am there. Take my thoughts to heart, as this place is off the map. Just very very special.

  • LocalHero says:

    Excellent update, RedCat! I am a local who noticed Oscar (‘s) years ago, but never ventured inside until yesterday @2pm. There were @10 sideliners on the couch, and I was surprised how HAWT half of them were. I picked a bonafied “Pretty” (the type you’d expect to find promoting something at the mall) for 2,100 THB and WOW did she have skills! Very good attitude and friendly personality. Professional service only (condom at all times).

    A chat in Thai discovered many of the girls come up from KK to earn. Likely having told their friends and family some excuse or other. I got the impression they may use the place to “shop” for a nearby wealthy Thai sponsor when they lose one.

    I wouldn’t mind a regular side myself and may dig a little more and see what happens. My Yoda TG skills are rusted and it is difficult to get all the dirt while feigning “nit-noy” Thai skills. I may drop the facade next visit or so.

    Anyway, good report! I am happy to have finally stepped in there thanks to your report!

  • The tank says:

    Thanks to all above… First time in Udon for many years, wow what a change!

    I chose to try out the massage next door to the Grand Naga. Very easy to find, into the car park, immediately on the right.
    Walking down the steps to the shop, a lady was there to point me in the right direction. Fishbowl is visible from outside the main door. I counted 25 ladies, ranging from not so hot, up to quite hot indeed. Nearly all were big in the chest area. But as I prefer smaller chests, I was pleased to spot one lady like this. Pretty also, very nice smile, she jumped up and appeared shocked that she was picked. Papasan said she was ok, but not popular.
    She did not speak more than a couple of words in English, me, same for Thai. But we got thru ok. I have had many massages over the years, but this was the best, really well trained and very strong. Her name is Pu, number 21. I would recommend her wholeheartedly. Very good experience.

  • adam says:

    You do not get here a true reply for a obvious reason,
    The reason why they rejected you, the younger guy, is simply because younger guys would cost them too much energy. Old, drunk farangs who like spending time in the bars are not fit and does not have a good stamina so it is easier work for them. They very often even have to help those farangs in bed to perform the work men supposed to do.
    I heard replies like this from many girls.

    • doug says:

      You cannot forget that the customers are part of the job and that’s what it is for the bar girls – a job. You cannot lose that perspective. So the reply about the girls not wanting to expend energy on the younger men is a good call to me. Also, from what I see with my own eyes in Udon is that the older men will spend more money on drinks for the girls and buy her food. As I understand, many of the bar girls do not receive a salary and the girls have to hustle drinks and food for a commission.

    • Charlie says:

      Spot on! I have been going in and out of Thailand for over 40 years. If you treat the ladies with respect, talk with them awhile, buy them some drinks and food, you will gain their attention better and have about any girl you want. However, I have not been to Udorn in decades, but the game is about the same all over. Udorn will be my next stop when I return to Thailand. Thank you all for your insight and opinions.

  • Doug says:

    I live in Udon and know it quite well. All Soi activity is shut down. I party along areas outside of Nutty Park and Day and Night. Whenever I go out, I almost always run into the police checking to see if venues are closing on time. Ever since the Sois in Udon were raided by the police in February of 2015, you can no longer find this kind of activity where you can go in and choose the girls. The Sois have now migrated to closed houses which are acessible using Tuk Tuk drivers or the 69 Hotel. You cannot go to the girls. The girls are brought to you. I have lived in Udon on and off for 20 years and this is by far the most serious of times. By the way, the Ton Koon Hotel is now the Naga and they keep raising the prices for oil massages.

    I am anxious to hear some replies to Boris’ post.

    • Doug says:

      The 69 Hotel has been a mainstay in Udon for over 20 years. Any Tuk Tuk driver would know where it is. If you find a Tuk Tuk driver in Udon who does not know, then he is truly out of touch. The 69 is on Soi 7 in Udon. Going to the 69 is a hit and miss thing. Some nights – no girls. I have had them bring me two girls to view on occasion. If you go after midnight, you may be out of luck some nights. Also in Udon, Mr Tong’s was recently closed. If you are seriously coming to Udon, check out the forum on Udonmap.com

    • Bobby says:

      Can you tell me where the 69 hotel is please?

  • Boris says:

    Is there any telephone escort agencies in Udon, like in Bangkok for instance? I can find nothing in Google. And if not, how much would a girl from Nutty Park for instance, be for 24 hours or more?

  • Uli says:

    Who like einjoy old,ugly and chuby masseuse should visit the fishbowl in Ton Tonkoon Hotel. I try my luck few times on diferent days and times at afternoon and evening and never saw any pretty lady there.

    The masseuses around central plaza looks a bit better, but almost every lady looks better then the masseuses from the fishbowl. Hahaha

    At bars around central plaza are very few pretty ladies but some crazy ladyboys.

    Who want try to catch a thai beauty should try his luck at the Mall or the beer park nearby trainstation and in phonix disco.

  • Ron says:

    Did not have Steven’s experience at all….nice beautiful girls all over udon. Picked up a local hottie at central plaza. She was eating alone at the food court and I asked if I could join her. The udon girls seem much more approachable than the rest of Thailand. Got her “line” is and asked her if she wanted to go to the club that night which she agreed. Got a table with a battle of whiskey and some water for 600 baht. Brought her back to my hotel and knocked it out that night and the next morning. Went to night and day and was quoted 1000 St 2000 lt. But that was without even chit chatting…I bet they will go lower. Udon imho has almost anything boo can offer…malls cinema good restaurants at half the cost and twice the chance for success.
