My Optimal Game Plan For Living In Bangkok
I will not be living in Bangkok long term. As I have mentioned I just don’t find Thai girls attractive so it would be silly to live here.
Most guys prefer the looks of Thais to Pinays, and I guess this is a good time for me to be in the minority. But Bangkok has a whole lot going for it, so I urge people who are moving to Asia to check it (and many places) out before settling on your new home.
It is so cheap to travel around here that there really is no reason not to spend a month in a few spots before you pick one. Don’t take my or some other blogs word for what is best because what is best for you may be different than others.
Before I moved to Asia everyone told me Thailand Thailand Thailand. But its not right for me. However if I was going to live there these are the things I would focus on.
Expats Should Stay Near Sukhumvit and the BTS
This is obvious advice to anyone that has been to Bangkok, but if you haven’t then you probably don’t know. Hop on AirBnB and look around for condo’s on Sukhumvit and the lower the number soi it is on the better.
Nana Plaza is on Soi 4, Cowboy is on Soi 23. Somewhere between the two is a good spot, even if you aren’t planning on hitting up the girly bars you still would probably be best off in this area. Thermae freelancer bar is by Soi 15.
You can find cheaper places to stay further out in On Nut (Soi 77) but you will then spend a lot of time on the BTS. If you stay in between Cowboy and Nana you can walk to most places you will go.
Even as a cheap bastard I will always pay a bit more for location. You will make up for the extra costs by saving time and transportation money. Plus the girls you meet can take the BTS to get to your place which makes it easy.
If you need a hotel for the night I know Ever Rich is nicely located directly on Sukhumvit for around $35. Or the famous Nana hotel is right next to Nana Plaza Gogo bars, with freelancers hanging out downstairs by the car park.
The Best Value Pay for Play
Honestly I have been pretty let down by the hooker scene in Thailand. It sure has a great reputation, but to me it is very overpriced, but then again when you don’t find the girls attractive that makes it harder to think you are getting good value.
While I was just telling you to locate yourself between Nana and Cowboy that was more because you will be near the best mall (Terminal 21) and near plenty of good foreign owned restaurants.
But Nana and Cowboy are quite expensive and even sitting in a bar there and drinking can get costly. Hell in Cebu and Angeles City I have some BJ girls on call that will come over for the cost of 2 drinks in Cowboy.
I think the hottest girl I have seen in any bar yet has been a 7, and they will probably be expecting you to pay them at least $75 if you barfine them. In Asia that is just awful value.
Even the freelancers here seem to have set prices in mind and at least on your first time taking them they aren’t up for much negotiation. On repeat visits you may be able to get a better deal, but who knows if she will perform well enough to warrant a repeat.
The only good consistent value I found in Pattaya was the massage shops. Well in Bangkok there are massage shops all over as well and while 98% of the ‘girls’ offering aren’t hot, when there are probably 10,000 of them in Bangkok you can find some good ones.
The alley between soi 11 and soi 13 seems like a good place to get a deal. There are also a lot of massage shops on Soi 22, and Soi 33 has them as well but some of the ones there will be costlier. But the massage shops are literally all over and you never know when one might hire a pretty new girl.
These are the best places for cheap sex, and while you can also get a bj there the skill of the girls is often lacking. Since I prefer a bj to sex my best value spots are elsewhere.
The best part about Bangkok has to be all of the bj bars and every bj I got at one was at the least very good, and some were great. The girls are trained nicely, and none have those hard mouths that make for a bad bj.
The attractiveness level of the girls can be hit or miss, and is generally more of a miss, but if you look around there are usually some good enough ones working. I have found the best talent to be at Som’s Heaven on Soi 14 but you never know where the best girl on any given day may be.
If I lived in Bangkok I would be at them a few times a week.
Easiest Way To Meet ‘Good’ Thai Girls
Full disclosure, I don’t lie on this blog, but sometimes I may work a link in (see AirBnB above) where it isn’t really necessary. Sometimes a dating site may be mentioned for no reason other than to drop another link.
Well in Thailand if I was going to be going for non hookers I would definitely be using the dating sites (like ThaiCupid and ThaiFriendly hehehe) and using them often. Why? Because girls there speak so much better English than the ones I met at the malls.
Sure there will be some girls on the dating sites that aren’t very good at English, but many of the girls on there spend all day playing around on Facebook or other places online. They have at least some level of English. When I met girls at the mall the majority of them were awful at English and had to use translator apps just to have a simple conversation. When I would invite them to hang out they insisted on bringing a friend to translate….. gross.
I am not the type to go on real ‘dates’ and I certainly am not going on one where a translator is needed. On the dating sites girls were much more open to meet 1 on 1, and they were even open to coming to my place.
Online dating in Thailand is not as easy as in the Philippines, but you still will get lots of replies. You probably need to work a little harder on your profile and put up a better appearance because Thai’s are quite materialistic.
But there is still a whole lot of easy pussy to be had. I didn’t go for much because I got a UTI that took me out of action for 2 weeks. During my other two weeks I really wanted to explore the various pay for play options in BKK to have knowledge on them so I could give accurate reports for the blog.
But I spent enough time on ThaiFriendly and ThaiCupid to know that with a marginal amount of effort you will be getting as much ass as you can handle. I’ve also just finished putting together a Bangkok ebook guide, read a free chapter on how the Gogo bars work here.
