Bangkok’s Red Light Districts – The Cheap Man’s Guide

With the economy going down the drain, any man… a cheap man that is, can still enjoy a holiday in any of Bangkok’s red light districts. First off you have to know when to go, where to stay, drink and most importantly find company.

The best time to go and save money for hotels in Bangkok is from late March to late October, which is the low season. Even though it will be hot and rainy during those months you’re going to be indoors most of the time. Hotels in Bangkok during low season slash their rates by up to 40% to 50%. Some hotels are even desperate enough to discount their rooms up to 60% for walk in guest.

When you choose a hotel however make sure you book one that won’t charge you a fee for taking a companion back to your room for an overnight stay. This fee is called a joiner fee and a hotel that doesn’t charge this fee is deemed guest friendly. Hotels that charge joiner fees usually ask for B1,000 so it’s in your best interest to stay at a guest friendly hotel.

Now there are short time hotels with rooms to rent for B300 an hour. But if you’re staying in a perfectly fine guest friendly hotel near the sex districts there’s no reason why you should be paying an extra B300. We can use that B300 for better things right?

There are plenty of budget guest friendly hotels in Bangkok, particularly close to any of the 3 sex districts in Bangkok.

In Patpong sex district you can choose to stay at the Wall Street Inn Hotel. Their room rates start from B1,000 and usually includes a breakfast. It is opposite a popular gay nightlife street and just a 5 minute walk to the neon lights and boom of club beats of Patpong’s go go bars. You can even find a lively night market there as well.

The next 2 sex districts, Nana and Soi Cowboy are very close to each other and you can use the Sky Train nearby to get to Patpong easily. A fare only cost B25.

Nana and Soi Cowboy has the most guest friendly hotels and many of them are expensive. There are a few budget ones such as the Woraburi Sukhumvit Hotel and Resort and Swiss Park Hotel. Both charge about B900 to B1200 and includes breakfast. Even better both are very near Nana hotels parking lot, a popular spot where Thai freelance girls and sometimes lady boys stand around. The Nana Hotel cost about B1,400 a night and still worth the price. 

I know most guys want to pay a visit to go go bars but for a cheap man you’ll be paying a lot. Beers and liquor are quite expensive in go go bars these days. A locally brewed Heineken will cost you B120. My suggestion is to go to 7 Eleven store where you can find a liter of cold Heineken for B45, sit outside and oogle at the many beautiful ladies around Nana and Sukhumvit. It’s free to oogle after all. 

Also remember in a go go bar you have to pay a B500 bar fine to take a lady out. For lady boys a bar fine is B600. But there’s still a way for you to meet go go bar girls and not pay a bar fine.

Nana Entertainment Plaza is a go go bar haven, located right across from the Nana Hotel. Every night around 1am to 2am the girls working inside will stream out into the Nana Hotel’s parking lot, which is just right across the street. They do so to make extra money. Since they’re outside of the bar you won’t have to pay a bar fine!

Now freelance ladies and lady boys usually ask for B1,500 for short time (1 hour) and B3,000 to B4,000 for long time (overnight). Obviously you don’t want to pay that much. So for instance if you find a lady you like and she’s standing firm on B1,500 for short time, but you only want to pay B1,000. I suggest you tell her if she can’t find a customer she can always come back to your offer of B,1000. It may not work all the time but your patience will reward you with a B500 savings.
