Of course like anywhere else in the world the more educated you are the more likelihood of earning a higher salary and better living standards. But Thai bar girls from poor areas or who were dealt a crap hand early in life have no other option.
Except to get as much money from sex tourists as they possibly can. I mean that literally as well. Bar girls love newbies. Because newbies may have never experienced so many girls giving them attention all at once.
They feel like a rock-star. They make you feel special. So special you want to spend money buying lady drinks for them and taking them back to their hotel rooms for sex. Seriously, take your time finding the right Thai bar girl that gets your attention. You sit down, you buy drinks, check out the girls and if you see one you like and request to have them sit with you then you must buy them a lady drink.
Though today, some bars have a rule where you must buy a couple of drinks for the bar girl on top of paying the bar fine. And bar fines which is money paid to the bar is non-negotiable. Where you come from? Best place to sit is near the front of the stage. They are positioned there to specifically lure men passing by the entrance. Beers in go go bars such as Singha, a popular local Thai brand will cost you around Baht. When you see a bar girl you like, find her number tag.
Alternatively you can give her a long eye contact. Not a creepy eye contact but a friendly one with a smile. Or you can wave at her. Some would say to choose a girl who dances energetically. Because it translates to a better experience in bed. This may be true. However, the best way to get a feel about the girls personality is to request that she sits with you for a chat. No matter how well she dances is no guarantee that she likes you. Lady drinks cost about Baht, depending on the establishment of course.
Some bars in Soi Cowboy such as Baccara are beginning to require a 2 drink minimum before you can even bar fine a girl. So make sure you check drink prices to avoid any unnecessary problems. A bar girl usually receives a percentage of the price. Now comes chat time. But this part is important. Tell her you live and work in Bangkok. They love over charging newbies because they know they have a higher chance of getting away with it. Pretty girls charge more. Ugly girls charge less. Call it the principle of supply and demand.
There is room to negotiate on a lower price. Go go bar girls are notoriously inflexible when it comes to their rates. Because they do not want to undercut the prices of other bar girls they work with. However, depending on the bar girl she might let you have a second go for free if she likes you.
Usually twice that is. Assuming the bar girl actually stays from night to dawn. There are girls who will skip out on the second go. If you have a special request make sure you ask her in advance before you decide on bar fining her.
Otherwise once you ask in the confines of a hotel room she may not go along. So you better make sure the girl you like is fine with it before you take her out.
My point is whatever floats your boat you should discuss first with your lady to avoid any disappoints. The Beer Bar Girls Beer bars are found all over the Nana red light district and up and down Sukhumvit road where Nana starts on Soi 4 and all the way between most of the side streets down to Soi Cowboy. Girls working out of beer bars are either employed by the bar or just working as freelancers. Usually, smaller beer bars employ working girls onsite.
Bigger beer bars such as beer gardens are filled with freelancers. A beer bar on Sukhumvit road you can take ladies out… There are a category of girls that work inside bars. They are usually wearing sexy casual clothing. Not unless they are not shy.
In go go bars you can get a really good look because the ladies are wearing two piece bikinis. I know a lot of guys are turned off by woman who have stretch marks on their stomachs due to pregnancy. That said, you can still find a lot of pretty girls with friendly attitudes at a beer bar. A girl friend experience can be a costly proposition. Bar fines are usually Baht. Some places charge as high as Baht or more, depending on the quality of the bar girl. Most guys negotiate with the bars for discount rates if they want to take a bar girl out for an extended vacation to Phuket or any other dreamy palm tree lined paradise island.
Men have a choice of either taking a bar girl back to a short time hotel where there are rooms available for Baht an hour. There are other terms like guest friendly or bar girl friendly. For example it makes a lot of sense to stay in a guest friendly hotel near Nana Entertainment Plaza so that every time you bar fine a bar girl you can head straight to your hotel room instead of paying Baht to rent a room.
Hotels that have a girl friendly policy are not some sort of sleazy sex hotel filled with hookers and punters. Many of these hotels are professionally run and managed, with guests ranging from leisure vacationers to business travelers. All of those hotels are within a 5 minute walking distance to the always popular Nana Entertainment Plaza filled with the wildest go go bars. Girl friendly hotels requires your companion to leave some kind of I.
This is only for your safety and makes an unscrupulous bar girl give a second thought about stealing from you.
