Pattaya has arguably the most bar girls of any city in Thailand. The city is a playground not only for foreigners, but the many ladies that come here to work in hopes of making some money from the huge bar industry in Pattaya.
In this guide I wanted to give you the full info about the bar girls, including the different types, their attitudes, prices, and how to increase your chances of getting the preferred “girlfriend experience” (GFE).
Beer Bar Girls
These women who work in the beer bars are typically of a lower standard than what you would find in the go go bars, and they know it. Their ages ranges are from 25 years old to 40 years old, with many of them being over 30. The exception to this is the girls from the Soi 6 bars, which are much younger than what you would find in the majority of the other beer bars areas in Pattaya.
In most cases, the girls that work in these beer bars can’t work in the top tier go go bars, since they aren’t as attractive, slim, or young enough. This has some good and bad points.
The good points is that they can be taken out for much cheaper than the the go go bar girls, and they generally give better performances, since they understand they may not get bar fined as often.
The bad points is that you will have a harder time finding one that is really attractive and young. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying that it is impossible. I am just saying that you will have to do some more searching in order to find one that is close to a go go girl in Pattaya.
Go Go Bar Girls
The go go bar girls are one level up from the beer bar girls, and they know it! These ladies know there worth. They understand that they are more attractive and younger than other women working in the bar industry in Pattaya, or freelancing in the nightclubs on Walking Street.
So naturally, the drawbacks to this is that go go bar girls will charge you more for taking them out, and you also have to spend extra on lady drinks and bar fines. Another thing about these girls is that they are more picky and choosy who they go with, since they also make decent money on lady drinks and salary.
It is not uncommon for some guys to get turned down at the go go bars. That is also one reason why some guys just end up using the the soapy massage parlors to find an attractive and young Thai girl, rather then spending too much time searching for bar girls in the nightlife areas of the city.
The good thing is that most of these go go bar dancers are super attractive, young, slim, and lighter skinned (preferred by most Asian clientele). In most cases it will be money well spent, and you can be assured to find some beautiful girl up to your standards to take back to your hotel room. Just make sure that your hotel in Pattaya is guest friendly.
Another great thing is that it is less time consuming. You can quickly head to a go go bar and expect to find many beautiful bar girls worth spending money on in Pattaya.
The same thing can not be said about the beer bars or when trying to find freelancers in Pattaya. Sometimes you waste time and money bar hopping to find a girl worth bar fining, and even then you may not be fully happy with what you found. So it is up to you to decide what is more important for you.
But lets get real, the money is one of the biggest factors when it comes to choosing the right bar girl to take out. So here is what to expect:
Beer Bar Girls in Pattaya will cost around 500 – 600 Baht for bar fines, and another 1000 – 1500 Baht for ST. For long time it will be from 1500 Baht to 2,500 Baht. Keep in mind that lady drinks will cost around 110 – 120 Baht at most beer bars.
Go go bar girls will have a barfine between 800 – 1,000 Baht at most places. It will cost around 2,000 – 3,000 Baht for ST, and from 3,000 – 5,000 Baht for long time. Lady drinks will cost anywhere around 145 – 160 Baht depending on the bar.
At both types of bars, the attractive and younger girls will expect the higher end of the prices I mentioned.
The Girlfriend Experience
One of the main things that most guys desire in Pattaya, especially when they take out a bar girl is to get the “girlfriend experience” (GFE) from them. This just means that rather then being so professional and business minded, the bar girl will treat the customer as if he was her boyfriend for the time they spend togther. in most cases this usually means:
- less time she is on her phone, and more attention on you
- better performance and attitudes in the bedroom
- will not rush the service, less “starfish” performance
- willing to spend more days with you
Keep in mind that every guy has his own standards about the GFE, but those things I mentioned are definitely some of the main complains I hear from most guys in Pattaya.
The truth is that getting the GFE is getting harder and harder these days, as these girls that work in the bars in Pattaya are mainly concerned about making the quick money, rather than building good connections with customers for repeat barfines.
That being said, there are still some things that can increase your chances of getting the best treatment from them. Here are some tips to keep in mind when you select a girl to bar fine. Make sure to select a bar girl that:
- Makes an effort to smile or get your attention in the bar
- Is willing to have some conversations with you and get to know you
- Does not look so serious or professional
- Is not constantly asking for lady drinks
Generally speaking, it will be hard to avoid all those things, but try to see the red flags with bar girls before taking them out. The best advice is to use your own gut instinct. If it feels like she is rushing you, or you can tell she won’t give a bit of GFE, then it may better to find another girl in the bar.
On the other hand, if you feel that you are vibing with her, and she is making some effort on her behalf, then it is a good sign it will be money well spent to go with her.
On a side note, the Philippines is generally better for trying to get the GFE in Southeast Asia.

Of course if you want to spend more time with her then you will need to negotiate for a price, which does not include the barfine.
A good advice is to first see how you are vibing with her before even asking her the price. Chances are that she will actually ask you if you want to take her out. And in my experience, this is a good sign. Once she is making an effort to know you, or is becoming comfortable with you, is the best time to start talking about the price.
A simple tip is to just play it cool, enjoy yourself in the bar, and just ask her what she expects if she comes back with you. If she gives you a high price do not act so surprised or that it affected you.
Just keep the conversation going and tell her what price you would like to give her. If she does not budge from her price point that can sometimes be a red flag. Because if she really felt comfortable with you she should be willing to make a deal with you.
At that point it is really up to you what you want to do. If you really like her then just simply agree to her price and take her. If you don’t think it will be a good choice then just don’t agree to take her for her price. But whatever you do, just keep your cool and keep enjoying yourself in the bar. Having fun in the bar is the main thing that these bar girls in Pattaya get drawn to.
