The Different Types and Costs of Hookers in Thailand

Last updated: July 28th, 2020 | in Thai Girls

Prostitution is illegal in Thailand and still there are estimated 500,000 sex workers, if you include all the freelancers and sideline girls it gets close to a million. There are many reasons why most types of prostitutes are still tolerated (e.g. go go bars, massage parlors, karaoke bars), but that’s a topic for another day.

Here is the complete list of hookers in Thailand and how much they usually charge. Keep in mind that for any of these types of girls you only have to pay them if you have talked about a price in advance.

Thai Go Go Girls

You sit in a go go bar and like a girl, smile at her and make her know she can come sit next to you. You talk a bit, at some point she will ask you for a lady drink or two and if you want to take her to your room you ask her for the bar fine and how much she wants.

  • Prices: 150-220 Baht for a lady drink, 500-1,000 Baht for bar fine (most places around 600 Baht), 2,000-3,000 Baht for short time, 3,000-6,000 Baht for long time. Especially the price you ask the girl is negotiable of course but these are the current standard rates and if you ask her in the bar (advisable) the girl will most probably tell you these prices.

Thai Bar Girls

Typical Thai bar girls who work in the so called beer bars are dressed sexy but don’t have labels like the Go Go girls who have a number attached on their shirts. Thai bar girls are normally no dancers but play pool in the bar or just hang around and try to sell drinks or bar games that they are good in (like Connect Four). Bar girls are a little bit cheaper than Go Go girls as the dancers have (generally) nicer curves.

  • Prices: 120-160 Baht for lady drinks, 500-600 Baht for bar fine, 1,000-2,000 Baht for short time, 2,000-3,000 Baht for long time. Again, it depends how much she will charge you and if you are lucky you can even get laid for free (still have to pay bar fine).

Thai Blow Job Girls

The next type of Thai hookers are those who specialize on performing oral sex on their customers. There are more than a dozen of so called blow job bars both in Bangkok and Pattaya. Many of them look like normal beer bars and you can have a drink first while making up your choice if you want one of the girls to suck you off either right in the bar, behind a curtain or upstairs in one of the small private rooms.

  • Prices: The standard price for a blow job in these bars is 700-800 Baht. They often also offer sex if you prefer that for about 1,300 Baht (room included). Drinks tend to be slightly cheaper than in the beer bars, about 100 Baht for a beer and 130 Baht for a lady drink.

Thai Hookers

Thai Street Freelancing Girls

You just walk down Sukhumvit Road from Terminal 21 shopping mall to Sukhumvit Soi 4 (on the right hand side) any day of the week from around 8pm and you will meet countless of street hookers that are asking you for short time straight away. Similar to the promenade along Beach Road in Pattaya. Those two places are currently Thailand’s areas that have the highest concentration of street hookers.

  • Prices: The times where you can get a street hooker for 500 Baht are over, more realistic is 800 Baht and up for short time. The going rate for a street hooker in Sukhumvit Soi 4 (Nana) is 1,000 Baht for short time and 350-400 Baht for a short time hotel room.

Thai Bar / Club Freelance Girls

This type of girl is often hard to identify as she hangs out in normal bars and clubs just like everyone else and clearly has no label that tells you she is working. However, they are often more dressed up than non-working girls and show what they’ve got. The good thing about freelance girls is that there is no bar fine, but there is a certain risk as they are totally on their own and you don’t know what they have in their mind if they are just about to leave town.

  • Prices: 500-2,000 Baht for short time, 2,000 Baht and up for long time. More if you go to upscale bars and clubs.

Thai Massage Girls

Normally it’s obvious which massage salons offer extended services by just looking at the girls and how loud they yell at you.

  • Prices: Depending on the massage, Thai massage 150-300 Baht per hour, Oil Massage 300-400 Baht per hour. Happy endings cost 300-500 Baht for a hand job, 500-1,000 Baht for a blow job and 1,000-2,000 Baht for sex.

Thai Soapy Massage Girls

A soapy massage is significantly different from the normal massage salon as you get to spend two hours with a beautiful white skinned model-kind-of girl that gives you the full program. I wrote a separate post on the soapy massage in Thailand that you can find here.

  • Prices: The going rate for a soapy massage all over Thailand is 1,500-2,500 Baht for one-and-a-half hours. Bangkok is the exception where most places are Asian oriented and some places make Farangs pay a bit more.

Thai Girls on Online Dating Sites

The best way to hook up with Thai girls for free is by using the Online Dating Site like thousands of tourists and expats do every day. While the majority of them isn’t out for money but just fun, you do also find these so called Sideline Girls who are mostly university students that look for a source of income if they don’t have a “real” part time job or their parent’s funds are not sufficient to pay all the bills. Sideline girls are like Giks (mistress) with the difference that you pay them a fixed amount per month and can call them whenever you feel like.

  • Prices: Negotiable and depending on the girl from 3,000 to 5,000 Baht a month, often more if she is white skinned and more than decent looking.

Thai Escort Girls

The most convenient way to get a Thai girl to your place is to simply book one online on a website like Smooci.com. The girls are stunning and extremely beautiful. They provide very clear information about how everything works (you can even track them on a map to see where they are) and also provide great pictures of the ladies that are available.

  • Prices: The typical prices for escorts are 5,000 Baht for 2 hours, 7,000 Baht for 4 hours, 9,000 Baht for 10 hours and 12,000 Baht for 24 hours. The standard additional charge for A-Level (anal) is 2,000 Baht.

Thai Karaoke Girls

Most of the karaoke bars cater to Thai clientele but then if you show up as a foreigner, especially in rural areas and even in some parts of Bangkok (Huai Khwang is such a district) they are happy to take care of you. Be warned though karaoke girls barely speak English – another good reason to learn Thai. Karaoke girls are very young, usually between 18 and 24 years.

  • Prices: Ordinary prices for drinks (usually no lady drinks) but you pay for the time she hangs out with you in the bar itself, say 200 Baht per hour. Not all karaoke bars have girls to take home but if they do, short time is 1,000 to 2,000 Baht. Plus the hourly rate payable to the bar, or even a fixed bar fine agreed on with the mamasan (female manager who looks after the girls).

Thai Brothel Girls

The lowest category when it comes to prostitution in Thailand. Tricky to find and normally not located in tourist areas. Very average looking girls often coming from Cambodia, Laos or Myanmar. Cheap and dusty places.

  • Prices: About 500 to 700 Baht per shot, means 20-30 minutes in one of their private rooms.

Thai Girls in Gentlemen’s Clubs

The highest category when it comes to prostitution in Thailand. While most of the Gentlemen’s Clubs still cater to Thai and Asian clientele, there are more Farang friendly places opening these days, by now one of the most popular ones being The Pimp in Rotchanamin, Bangkok. The girls at G Clubs couldn’t be more beautiful and white skinned.

  • Prices: Money shouldn’t be your concern when visiting a Gentlemen’s Club in Thailand.

Thai Tomboy Girls

Niche market in the Thai sex industry. “Tom” is called the girlfriend of a Thai lesbian that almost looks like a guy and has short hair. There are some Thai and Farang guys who like that type of girl and that’s why they built up some Tomboy clubs in Bangkok and Pattaya.

  • Prices: 500 Baht bar fine, 1,000 to 2,000 Baht for short / long time.

Thai Mia Nois

A Mia Noi is more than just a Gik which is a normal kind of “fucking friend” that you see from time to time. If you have a serious relationship or are even married to a Thai woman and get yourself a kind of second wife that your first wife often even knows about and is fine with it, that’s what is called a Mia Noi.

The first wife has the name Mia Luang, the more important of the two wives or in other words the wife with the higher rank. The name of the second wife Mia Noi, comes from Mia = slang word for wife and Noi = little, in this context the second wife or in other words the wife with the lower rank.

  • Prices: 10,000 Baht a month and up.

Thai Ladyboy Hookers

Obviously you have also countless of ladyboy hookers in Thailand and the three most common types are go go dancers, freelancers and escort girls. The whole ladyboy scene really deserves its own article and that one can be found here.

Also, make sure to check out the great post about the same topic, the different types of hookers in Thailand written by my friend Chris, founder of the blog Living Thai.

    Do you guys tip the girls on top of the agreed price? If so, what percentage do you recommend?

    • Colin says:

      Most bar girls do expect a tip and there face turns sour if you don’t .
      A 100 baht to pay for there taxi is what I give as a tip

    • Kev says:

      I just pay them what we agree to plus barfine of course. I do however tip 100 baht (3$) to the mamason of the place and also the “fixers/waitress”. This is not much money to us but is appreciated by them. Helps grease the skids with mamason which means discounts if a regular and special treatment. So is actually a good investment since there are so many cheap bastards here. I do this all the time and Bangkok Bunny and Angel Witch and I get discounts and sort of a VIP type treatment. This is because they will appreciate your tip and now you are not a cheap ass. Not saying to start throwing money around however they have businesses to run and I have had nothing but positive results at least at those establishments. Matter of fact my barfine for the night from Angel Witch just left my room. Absolute stunner with one hell of a body literally fucked my balls of! She was not happy at 2000b st for tonight but her mamason talked to her for me :). Worth every penny!!! :) cheers

    I don’t think it’s right to judge others. You have your beliefs and that’s subjective.
    For an independent person who is not interested in the melodrama of a normal relationship or the travails of a breakup, would want no strings attached flings and paying for sex is the obvious choice.
    We are all selfish in in one way or another.

    I always wondered why the fascination with Thailand? I would’ve visited long ago but a 24 hour plane ride (incl. layovers) and $900 for a plane ticket held me back. I’m also a Latina guy and never been a fan of Asian girls due to their looks or lack of curves. Funny too that mongers post pics of Latinas but not Asian girls. I’ve seen Thai expert King Epic’s youtube videos of “the cutest Thai girls.” I don’t see it, but everybody has their preference.

    A few months ago on another site some mongers were raving about Thailand being “heaven.” I asked them what the big deal was. They said tons of girls everywhere in your face. I said having twice the number of 5’s and 6’s doesn’t make them into 8’s and 9’s. So why the hype? They didn’t answer. Radio silence. I wanted to find out the secret of the ages as to why Thailand is rated the #1 mongering destination. I did a lot of research to answer this question. I read just about every article here and on other sites.

    There are quite a few monger websites dedicated to Thailand since it’s so popular. All of them, including this site, warn mongers to NEVER have any kind of sex there without a condom. King Epic said he won’t let a Thai girl (pros and even clean looking civilians!), give him a blow job without a condom. He said he twice got a UTI from that and it was very painful. He even has a youtube video called “Thailand Rant – 99% Chance You’ll Catch Something.” Wow. You don’t see warnings like that on monger sites focused on Central or Latin America.

    One site said Thai girls have boyfriends who refuse to use condoms and that was also a factor. One of Cheap Charlie Chronicle’s youtube videos has a street hooker telling him they could go to his hotel and “make a baby.” He passed. There are BJ Bars who indiscriminately service all customers with unprotected blowjobs, even do CIM, unlike the Latinas who at least inspect you before making that decision, if they do it at all (which most don’t, which I like because it means they are discriminating and safe.) Then there are the tons of ladyboys who are thrown in the mix to complicate things. Some bars have girls and ladyboys working in the same bar. It’s up to you to choose wisely, buyer beware. WTF? King Epic said many a drunken Aussie has been fooled by a ladyboy. Then there are mongers who pull a ladyboy and pretend he is a girl because “she’s gorgeous.”

    WOW. This is not just the usual fear mongering from the religious right. They are scientific studies, warnings, and anecdotes from credible, objective sources, some of who love and promote Thailand! That crossed Thailand off my list for good. I don’t pull unless I get bb but I’m not stupid. But I guess there are some guys who spend $900 and 24 hours in a plane to get CBJ and CFS (which to me is a waste of time and money). The burning question remains WHY? Maybe it was a combination of the tourist sights and beaches, the food, the low prices, the modern infrastructure, the safety of the country, and the friendly people that outweighed those negatives.

    I think it’s the last two, and especially the last one. I looked at all those youtube videos of the girls arm-pulling guys into the bar no matter what they looked like, with a fun-loving, party attitude. In the bar there was a girl for every guy who wanted to drink and dance. On the other hand, Latinas never approach the guys, and the guys usually sit alone, too intimidated to approach because the girls are selective and snooty. Thai girls are known to be friendlier and act more like a girlfriend no matter what the guy looks like. That is a big difference from Latinas who act like they are doing the monger a favor depending on what he looks like (which is always a mood killer no matter how pretty the girl is.)

    And that is why I think many mongers love Thai girls. They feel like they’re the ones doing the girl a favor because they are treated like Brad Pitt, which must be an intoxicating feeling. It’s about the connection, how the girls make the guys feel about themselves, not about the girl’s looks or body. That will cover up a lot of blemishes for most mongers, even blemishes like super-gonorrhea for some.

    Everybody has their preference. This is not a criticism of mongers in Thailand, just an observation. So don’t take it personally and go on attack mode. Actually I would be interested in anybody’s counterpoint in case I missed something. But if this post is deleted, I will know my conclusion was right.

  • Steve says:

    Maybe the girls there are a better lay than the angry girlfriend.

  • Mike says:

    Going back and forth to thailand since 2005. If you’re paying more than 2000 baht, Overnight, plus doing your laundry, you’re paying too much. Clean, young (20-30), good looking. Either your getting ripped off or they don’t like you. Be smart, friendly, cheerful before you ask them to go! Good luck!

  • pram says:

    – beware of hooker – dont take girls younger than 20 ( age limit).
    – If you are taking paid services dont pay full amt in advance – pay half before and half later, if she insist, let her go otherwise either she will go with partial service or service itself will not be good.
    Usually girls dont ask money in advance.

  • Bobo says:

    I was in Pattaya 14 days from Mars 18. 2017 And there you paid 1500-200 Bath for 24 hours for a girl. Never pay before you finish with her. I had a girl for 5 days and payd 1500 Bath for the girl, but remember if she work at a bar you have to pay Mama san 300-400 Bath to let you have the girl. Allready ordered a new trip ther 9. June 2017. Never gonna go to other places then Thailand :)

    • Jay Thomas says:

      Hey Bobo,
      Would you be willing to speak with me a little more about the details of your arrangement with this girl who stayed with you for 5 days for only 1500. I am interested in making a similar arrangement when i arrive mid January.
      Thanks!

  • Frank says:

    I was at Phuket Batong beach for a 2 weeks. Had nice xmas and new year there. If you beheave good and treat your thai “gf” nice it wont be so expensive. Ofcourse prices varies: your age, how you look, how you speak and how you treat your “gf”.

    I had good looking girl for one week and i paid her 10k baht, food and bed, but it was good times and totally worth of it :)

    Just browse around gogo-bars. Dont be too drunk, do not take first lady that says you: I love you daaaaaling and you will be good :D

    • Dean says:

      Hey question, when picking up a girl from a bar or anywhere when do u pay the girl the mone you owe her at the right time?

  • David Large says:

    Buddy I got back from Thailand on Sunday. Had a week lined up w an OK looking dating site non paid Thai girl (I did pay her travel costs n fed her) had a free day before meeting her and headed to SOI cowboy to knock a couple out. Man, I’m here to tell you that any girl that I’d want to pay to have sex with was talking 150 to 175$ is dollars. As in the same fucking price it’d cost to fuck a hooker in Charlotte or Atlanta etc. They did not seem very negotiable either. I’m 39 and for a monger not bad looking. Don’t know what the fuck was up. It was February 4th 2017… Is this a holiday there??? Good luck and may I recommend Mexico or Eastern Europe.

    • Jeff says:

      Don’t know what you walked into but it sounds to me like you waked into a place being run by a Australian ExPat who doesn’t have a clue. The normal price for a Bargirl in Karon Phuket is 1500 to 2000 Baht for long time if you shop around there are some young attractive girls in that mix but most are over thirty and have at least one kid, everybody has to pay the bills

  • ben says:

    there are many russian working girls in thailand. some asian guys prefer white girls. most are a bit more expensive however. so if that’s your thing you might be better off staying at home. or go to russia. if you go to greece you can have yourself a white girl for 2 euro or just a sandwich. most western women are sluts anyway so wy bother going to thailand if that’s your thing?

  • ben says:

    the pimp is a gentlemen’s club. the girls look amazing but most only speak thai. only a couple speak english. this is not a place to pick up girls. most girls are just university girls and not working girls. only 20/30% is hooking. this is more a place you jjust go to party and drink. it can be great fun but make sure you bring enough money. on a normal night i spent 5000b if a bit wild 10000b that’s without sex. if gentlemen’s clubs are your thing it’s best to take a membership. at the pimp membership starts at 20000b and includes 12 bottles of black label. if you’re interested there’s a complete guide on bangkok’s gentlemen’s clubs online. just google it. if one of the girls really likes you, she might be willing to date you. you can ask her number. this can be a place to score a superstar hot girlfriend. if you’re not bad looking yourself and have some money to burn.
