In this guide I will give you the the full info about freelancers in Pattaya, including where to find them and the prices to expect in 2019. And as usual, I will also give you some personal tips throughout the article to give you a full perspective on how to get the best experience with them.
Simply put, paying a freelancer is now one of the most affordable options in Pattaya, especially since the price inflation of the bars and drinks prices has driven demand down in those businesses. The city’s nightlife is still great, but not as affordable as it once was.
The great thing is that the price increases have actually increased the supply of the freelancers in the city. The fact is that most of the single male foreigners who visit Pattaya are coming for the value the city represents. So while its true that the go go bars and soapy massage parlors are a fun experience, but they may be a bit too pricey, especially since the Thai Baht is very strong at the time of this writing.
The Pattaya tourism experienced a downturn in the number of tourists this year, especially during the low season. The value the city represented was not there anymore.
The prices for drinks in some of the bars and clubs are now almost the same, if not more than your own city back home, which has made some guys think twice about how long they stay here.
The less customers in the bars and streets, the less money all the girls in Pattaya can make. So thankfully, the freelance scene in Pattaya is still going strong, and even seems to be thriving more than ever.
It has also brought in a whole new category of “semi-pro” freelancers. These are the ones that don’t wish to work in the bars, but still want to make some (independent) money on the side and do it on their own time.
Pattaya Beach Road is still one of the best places to find freelancers, especially from the section of Soi 8 to the end of Beach road near Walking Street. There will also be plenty of them on the opposite side of the street, especially in the area where many motorbikes are parked.
Starting from around 6 PM, to well into the night, you will many girls who are willing to give with customers for a price.
Nightclubs & Bars
Although you may find freelancers scattered all over the tourist areas of Pattaya, you will find many of them in the nightclubs on Walking Street.
The freelancers in the nightclubs are very noticeable, since they will make a good effort to make eye contact with you and smile. And if they happen to be interested in you they will even approach you and start dancing with you.
The best way to get freelancers in the clubs is to relax and enjoy yourself. Smile to the girls, and give off a good friendly vibe. Enjoy your drink, dance, and approach the girls you find attractive. It really is up to you how you want to approach. Some guys are very direct and ask the girls how much they want, other guys are more discreet and like to build up some connection before discussing money.
The freelancers online in Pattaya offer some of the best value in all of Thailand. Not only are there so many girls online, but they actually outnumber the demand. So if you are patient, and know how to communicate the right way with them, you can really find some good ones.
The good thing about the online scene is that it is very convenient. You can easily use your smart phone to view the profiles and start communicating with the ones that interest you. Also, if you post a few decent pictures you will notice that they are the ones that start to chat with you.
Short Time: 1,000 Baht – 1,500 Baht
Long Time: 1,500 – 2,500 Baht
The prices can be negotiated, since they also depends on some other factors:
- Her Age
- Physical appearance
- Your own appearance and attitude
Generally speaking, the more experience you have, the easier it will be for you to find the good ones for the lowest price.
And the opposite hold true — if you are a newbie to Pattaya then you will most likely pay the higher end of the prices mentioned. But keep those prices I mentioned as a good reference point, and try not to pay over that.
Are They The Best Value in Pattaya?
Keep in mind that freelancer prices are negotiable in Pattaya, so it depends on how attractive she is and how young she is. The bottom line is that it is up to her if she even wants to go with you. So generally speaking, the way you look, and represent yourself can make some difference to how responsive she is to you.
Freelancers Vs Bar Girls
One of the best things about paying for a freelancer is that you skip the barfine fees and lady drink costs at the beer bars in Pattaya. And with the increase of prices in Pattaya, this can add up real quick. But, there are also some drawbacks to this as well. When you get a girl girly bar in Pattaya, you know where she works, and who she is. There is a little more assurance and less risk involved.
About Safety With Freelancers
You must be extra careful when you bring a freelancer back with you in your room. Make sure that your valuables and money is locked up in the room safe, and also try and keep and eye on her. If she offers you a drink when you come back from the shower don’t take it, unless you are sure what is in the drink.
These are just security measures you should take, it doesn’t mean that anything bad will happen to you. But there are many bad stories of freelancers robbing customers of their money. Most hotels will ask for ID of your guest, and they will call your room prior to releasing her from the hotel. But in any case, it is good to know of the risks involved.
Another thing to consider is HIV. Bar girls have more regulations to follow and will get routinely tested. With freelancers you never know if they are clean. So make sure to be responsible on your side, and understand the risks involved.
