1.Street Ladyboys

These are the independant ladyboys who roam around in the popular locations where single male tourist go. In Pattaya there are 3 hangouts:

Beach Road: During the evening you will find plenty of them, on the Beach promenade. Starting mostly from Soi 10, and going all the way towards the entrance of Walking Street is where you can find ladyboys. They will be either standing alone, or in small groups, chatting with their friends or playing on their phone. The main purpose is that they are waiting for potential customers who might be interested in them. Although it is safe, just be aware that some issues can and do happen.

Walikng Street: As always, Walking Street is always in the conversation when it comes to ladyboys in Pattaya. Here you will find many freelancers just walking about, either meeting their friends for some drinks, or going to a bar to meet a foreigner.Right in the middle of Walking Street is excellent for this, as there is also the Marine Disco, which allows ladyboys. Almost all the other nightclubs do not allow them in.

Soi Buakhao: This popular expat area is also a wonderful place to find freelancing ladyboys. Keep a lookout in the LK Metro area for the highest concentration. In the evenings, especially after midnight and into early morning is when they can be spotted.

Final Thoughts

Wow, were to begin. I mean Pattaya is really in a class of its own when it comes to naughty fun times in Thailand. This city is the place to be if you want it all.

It has a beach, and although it may not be spotless clean, it still ads to ambience of the place.

Prices are decent, as long as you don’t go over-board at the expensive go go bars on Walking Street. There are plenty of good deals on hotels, and the food is also relatively cheap. I would say the pricing here is somewhere between Chiang Mai and Phuket. And of course, the ladyboys in Pattaya are abundant, and man of them are attractive.
