They come Bangkok in hopes of finding some independent business to do. And what better than to keep the male foreigners company, in exchange for some payment.
In this article I will give you a brief intro on the topic, then the best places to find freelancers in Bangkok. We will also learn about the prices, attitudes, and more helpful info in 2019.
The huge influx of freelancers in this city has created an interesting supply and demand balance. No matter how many single male foreigners come to experience the nightlife areas in Bangkok, there always seems to enough working women to supply the consistent demand of male sex tourists. A huge portion of these women are the freelancers, and in terms of value, it may be the best option for most guys in Bangkok.
It can be a great thing to deal with the women directly, without having a bar act like a “middle man” to broker the deal. The high bar fine prices, lady drinks, and also your own drinks at the best girly bars makes it a smart choice to attain the services of freelancers these days.
Another guaranteed option is to head to the massage parlors, but those aren’t quite as cheap as most guys would like to pay for services in Bangkok.
Here are the best areas to find freelancers:
Nana Plaza Area
As the sun sets, you will gradually find more and more working women lined up just across the entrance to Nana Plaza, which is on Sukhumvit Soi 4. You will find freelancers pretty much on both sides of Soi 4, the closer it gets to Nana Plaza entrance.
For those of you that are new to the scene, just be aware that there will be quite a few ladyboys in this area as well.
The Sukhumvit stretch, mainly from around Soi 5 all the way to Soi 17.
In the evenings, and until late is where you can find many Thai women freelancers waiting for potential clients to walk by. This will be on the north side of Sukhumvit Road, the odd numbered Sois.
A large portion of these freelancers will be hanging outside (and inside) the famous Thermae Bar, located near Sukhumvit Soi 15. It is well-known place to find freelancers in Bangkok.

Nightclubs & Bars
Another great way to find freelancers in the city is to check out some of the popular nightclubs. Most of the clubs with working women will be around the popular foreigner areas such as Sukumvit. Some great nightclubs in Bangkok to find freelancers are Insanity, Mixx (at the Intercontinental Hotel basement), Sugar.
Some of the beer bars around Sukhumvit are also potential places to find some freelance working girls. The Beer Garden on Soi 7 is always a good place in this regard, and also some of the bars around the Nana Plaza.
Generally, you may find a potential freelancer in any of the tourist bars around the Sukhumvit Road area, especially around the red light districts, Soi 7, Soi 11, and Nana Plaza.
Online is easily one of the best and easiest ways to find freelancers in Bangkok. There is a huge listing of profiles of women who are open to meet foreign males in exchange for some payment. This includes all types, from full pros, to semi-pros who are working independently to make some extra money on the side.
In terms of value, it may even be the cheapest. You don’t need to head out into the streets, bars, nightclubs to find women. All of which costs money to do.
Meeting all types of women online in Bangkok can easily be done by using a site like ThaiFriendly, which will give you quick access to a large listing of profiles to view.
Freelancer Prices in Bangkok
The cost of the getting the services from an independent freelancer is the following:
- Short Time: Around 1,000 Baht – 1,500 Baht
- Long Time: 2,000 Baht – 3,000 Baht
As always, keep in mind that the cost varies. The more younger and attractive women will be asking for the higher end of the prices.
Experience is also a factor. Once you understand the pricing and how to negotiate you will generally be paying the low end of the prices for the services. The prices I mentioned are the going rates for most women at the time of this writing (2020).

Freelancers Vs Bar Girls
As mentioned before, there is some key differences to know when it comes to getting your service from freelancers, as compared to the bar girls.
The main difference is that that freelancers work independently, and are not affiliated with any bar. So you may not be able to track her down in Bangkok. If anything goes wrong in the transaction, or if she steals anything from your room then you are most likely going to have to deal with it on your own or just accept what happened. Although it happens very rarely, it is still important enough for me to mention it.
The second factor is that bar girls get routinely tested for STD’s, whereas freelancers do not. There is a certain risk factor when it comes to getting services from a freelancers, but most guys are willing to compromise on that due to the cheaper prices and convenience.
The good thing is that with more experience you will get a better idea of which freelancers are worth going with, and which ones to avoid. But lets be honest, in this industry there is always a certain risk, even with bar girls.
