Without a doubt the easiest city in the world for meeting beautiful ladyboys. We have listed
as many places here as we know about! And if it isn't here then it's not worth knowing
about! If you are aware of any updates and changes that should be included then email firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll

Plaza the hours are generally from 7PM till around one in the morning but it changes every
night and there doesn't seem to be a well enforced procedure for bar closing. But after the
bars have closed the ladyboys all spill out into the streets where you can save yourself a
bar fine and also find dozens of bars on sukhumvit selling cheap drinks. In fact these
mini-bars on the street are open till day break and are a great way to while away the
The bars in Nana Plaza are expensive. A water costs the same as a
beer! Bar fines are a high 600 baht. The bars are also crushingly noisy. Sometimes the
ladyboys and the wait staff can be overly aggressive. It can be overwhelming for new
visitors. But stick with it because it's ultimately rewarding. Below are some recent
reviews of each of the bars available.
Second floor in Nana Plaza, on the left hand
side towards the rear. Small ladyboy bar which has been there for years and
still has the largest concentration of the amazon-like ladyboys that
have made this place famous. Every night you can find between 20 and
30 shemales in this place; bar fine is 600 baht and they have short
time rooms on the 3rd floor for 300 baht for 2 hours. The bar itself
opens at about 6:30 and goes until 1AM. An institution in Bangkok
ladyboy circles and a must-see on everyone's trip agenda. It has suffered from a bad
reputation in the past but recently seems to be more customer friendly. The music here is not
so noisy either, at least compared to the other bars in Nana Plaza. Many regulars have
found their 'comfort zone' in this family style bar even if they aren't attracted to the type
of ladyboys which are more commonly featured there.
Charades (Formerly Cascades)
Third floor in Nana Plaza, towards the rear
corner on the right-hand side. Converted to a ladyboy bar in September 2003, this bizarrely designed
and gaudy bar hosts well over 80 ladyboys. That's right, eighty beautiful
ladyboys on any given night! Without a doubt this is the biggest ladyboy
bar in the world and we highly recommend checking this place out. Bar
fines are 700 baht with short time rooms a short walk away. Trippy
decor and a bit loud but with so many ladyboys you may not care! Actually, it is so big that
to see all the talent you have to do a bit of moving about. The waiters will hate you for it,
but these aggressive scum bags aren't worth your spit anyway! Don't be told where to sit -
have a good look around and pick somewhere spacious and comfortable, preferably away from the
horrible disco but close to the air conditioner vents. Lots of new girls in this bar having
just rolled into town from the farms. As with all the bars it's a good idea to check the IDs
or have the hotel check them for you.
Chaos 9 (Formerly Guess Bar)
Just a little ways down Soi 4 past Nana Plaza and on the
right hand side. This bar was very popular as Guess Bar. We hear there are less ladybnoys on staff
than the previous bar. However we hope they maintained the relax lounge like atmostphere. This
was always a good place to relax and play pool.
First (ground) floor, Nana Plaza, rear
right hand side. Probably the absolute epicenter of the ladyboy universe. This is a Nana
Plaza institution and is the
2nd-longest ladyboy running bar right after Casanova. A 'must see' place. Every night over
70 girls come out on to the small stage and some are
very very hot indeed. Lots of
the girls in here are the petite kind, not the amazon's you will see
in Casanova or the taller girls that work in Cascades. Actually, it's a very good mix of
talent so there's something in there for everyone. It's very popular with the Japanese guys
and when they walk through the door you'll be lucky to get even a furtive glance or
surreptitious wink. But don't worry - they usually don't stick around too long so you'll
still have a chance! As of April 2009 this is the very best bars in terms of talent. There
are plenty of the regulars there who have been around for so (too?) long but there are also
about 40 to 50 brand new young ladyboys who will absolutely take your breath away.
(Get your hotel to check IDs if you are concerned with the
2nd Floor, Nana Plaza, located next to the
Fantasia bar. This bar opened in June of 2005. t's a long
and slim bar which has a bit of a claustrophobic feel to it;. You will
feel as though you are "right on top" of the dancers, literally! Made
up of many of the free-lance girls who used to roam the outsides or
Nana Plaza and girls who have left Charades or Obsessions, this place has been said to be a
bit too aggressive as far as the girls are concerned. But just recently the talent here has been
getting better and the atmosphere seems to be more friendly. It's still extremely noisy,
though and the girls hanging around outside the bar dragging you in can be a bit tiresome or
stressful depending on your disposition! But all in all it's a good fourth option when you
have burned your bridges everywhere else!
Kings Castle 3
Patpong road, left-hand side halfway
up the road, coming from the Silom road entrance. Another Bangkok
institution which has been there for years, this place still has the
most attractive ladyboys in all of Thailand, probably in the whole
world. Between 30-40 ladyboys most nights in this wild place; bar
fines are 500 baht and they have an attached short time room for
another 400. Problem is that in this place you never know if your
potential date has a dick or not. About half of the ladyboys in here
are post-ops, and that has never changed since we have been going in
there since 2001. We will keep you posted on any changes but for now
get yourself down to "KC3" and see this local landmark. Not exactly
our number 1 choice for ladyboy bars in Bangkok as there is a bit of a
hard sell and the music is at least 5 times louder than it should be,
but again this should be included in your trip plans at least one time
if you are going to Thailand to meet ladyboys. You will see some
amazing beauty in this place.
Also on Patpong Road, about a 10 o'clock
direction from when you walk out of Kings Castle 3. Or, coming from
the Surawong side it would be about 100 meters down on your left, at
the little alley that leads over to Foodland. There is a little soi
next to it, and a large sign out front. This place is 100% post-op
mixed in with genetic ladies, about a 50/50 split, and a massive
number of girls work in this place; we have seen over 50 at one time
on their large stage. If you like ladyboys who are already
post-operative, this is the place for you; make sure you ask if your
potential date is a female or a post-op, and rest assured no one with
a dick still attached will be working in this place. Some of the most
beautiful people of any gender that you could ever see work in here.
Soi Cee, Ratchada Road
This is a large selection of
dance bars on Soi 4 Ratchada road; ask any Taxi driver, just get in
and say "Soi Cee Ratchada". You will be dropped at a huge mecca for
Thai teenagers and early 20-somethings, about 99% Thai and very few
westerners. Mostly ladies available here, but always some ladyboys
mixed in, many of them Cabaret workers from the Ratchada Cabaret or
Golden Dome going out for fun after their shows. Beware; many of these
are post-ops, always ask if that is not your thing. Great place and
very fun, even if you don't meet ladyboys here you will have a good
time; Thursdays through Saturday, 8PM till 1AM.
Disco, Soi 6 Ratchada
Huge Disco, mostly
genetic females in this place with the occasional ladyboy mixed in,
usually in groups with their friends having fun and dancing, but can
be picked up. Same as at Soi Cee, these girls are sometimes "nice
girls", the kind that work in Cabaret's or go to university and don't
work in the bars, although you will see a few of those also. A sure
telltale sign that the girl you are interested in is indeed a ladyboy;
she will be playing with her hair and stroking it every few seconds.
We have swapped out RCA for these 2 places since our last Tourism
update as the 2 best places to find ladyboys in a non-go-go bar
setting in Bangkok. You could also try Khao San road, the hippy
backpacker haven; lots of freelancers walk around there or go dancing
at The Club or Suzy Wong's or Lava; we're not sure why.
Huge restaurant on soi 6
Retched road, about 200 meters down from the Soi Cee bars and on the
same road that Hollywood Disco is on. Great place that doesn't even
open until about 11PM and goes until 5 or 6AM, you can get food and
beer here and do some serious people-watching; all the real girls and
ladyboys who went to the bars flock here on weekends and there are
also many of the Nana and Patpong girls and ladyboys, they come here
to party after their shift is over. Outstanding place for night owls
and insomniacs, try this place out from about 2AM to 5AM and have fun.
Other assorted meeting places; Lumpini Park
always has street-walking freelancers strolling around the outside
fringes of it. The prices for these girls is pretty cheap, but beware
pickpockets and the language barriers may be tough as many of these
girls can't speak very good english; we have also heard reports that
this place is rather dangerous so be careful if you choose this route;
Any traveler to Bangkok will know about Sukhumvit Road,
which is also a street where ladyboy hookers have sold their trade for
years. However, in recent years there has been a crackdown on hooking
on this street, and it is harder and harder to meet ladyboys there
now. If you are looking for ladyboys on Sukhumvit, start walking up
and down between about soi 5 and Asok road at about 10PM until about
3AM and you are bound to see dozens. Remember, all freelance ladyboys
have to be looked at with a bit of suspicion, they don't work in the
bars sometime for good personal reasons but also could be because they
were not allowed back in after doing something wrong. After 1AM this
area is flooded with ladyboys from the Nana bar scene, eating and
chatting with friends, but they will go home with you if asked.
Outside Nana Plaza at 1AM is a gold mine for ladyboy
lovers and just plain anyone who likes to have fun! This place is
where it all happens; ladyboys and ladies getting off their shifts,
and all the freelancers from Sukhumvit all converge on that little
space between Nana Plaza and the Nana hotel; it is like Mardi Gras
every night of the week. If you can't get laid here, you are just not
trying hard enough.
There is also a stretch of New Petchburi Road near the Amari
hotel where there are about 20-30 hookers walking every night, some
ladies and some ladyboys, and some post-ops. Hard to make out who is
who on this wild stretch of road; be warned. This is a 1-mile stretch
of road and again, we really don't recommend picking up anyone from
the streets of Bangkok that are outside the tourist area's.
They are everywhere! Everywhere you look in Pattaya
there are ladyboys. Hundreds of the girly bars have at least one or two and there are many
great bars that specialize in them. At the top of the page we said that Bangkok was the
easiest place to meet ladyboys. That's true but for sheer numbers Pattaya is 'Ground Zero'
when it comes to more bang for your buck! Once you have mastered the geography of this
extremely naughty city then the world is your oyster and there's a pearl on every street
corner. And not only are there P4P workers after your holiday bonus checks... there are the
malls and small businesses, the massage parlors and markets.
So whether you want nice or nasty, tall or short, fat or slim, femboy or bolt on Barbarellas, then Pattaya is
where to be. And add to that the prices then you'll be marching home with more money than
you came with! Pattaya is also a lot less business minded too and a lot more fun than
So... where should you go? Well, you'll be tripping over them everywhere
but here are a few places that we recommend...
Owned and operated for the last couple of years by Alis
and her farang chum, this is easily the friendliest bar for ladyboy lovers. About 15 to 20
ladyboys are out on soi 13/1 every night flaunting their stuff and making you feel welcome.
This bar came about a couple of years ago as a result of the bar across the street running
into difficulty with their strange and charismatic owner Franck. Now it's a cheap and
friendly place to meet like minded friends or look for some ladyboy company.
Bob welcomes you to the
longest running ladyboy Go Go in Pattaya. Every night about 30 or so scantily clad ladyboy
babes revolve and rotate the poles in this small bar at the other end of the same street as
La Bamba on 13/1. The short time rooms upstairs are a bit seedy but sometimes that's what
we all come for, right? The club itself is a little run down these days and the bar staff
have been rumored to be a bit pushy and rude. But the talent here is breathtaking...
fabulous slutty ladyboys all for the price of a Latte and banana cake back home!
For you night owls and hard
core LB admirers then take a walk down soi BJ off Walking Street. Lita is an institution in Pattaya
and has had numerous bars over the years. And it's open till day break every night so get
plenty of rest during the day if you want to make it the whole night! Just watching the in
and out journeys of the short time room users is worth the price of a drink! Right near the
a large Go Go complex that years ago had a major refurbishment. It is attached to the adult themed
penthouse Hotel. This is a high end establishment, so expect quality and higher prices.
Certainly in the past they have had some talented ladies and ladyboys working for
bar on soi 6 is opened from lunchtime and all day. The downstairs is for the ladyboys and
upstairs features the regular girlies... (yearckkkk!) Good daytime meeting place
and well priced drinks. Watch the ladyboys eat and get their war paint on in real natural
light and sober... Yikes! Another bar which takes customer service a bit more seriously and
well worth an afternoon of drinking and ogling! It's also a great place to perch if you
want to get a good view of the crazy antics of the Hi Boss freaks as they antagonize the
poor tourists walking up and down soi 6!
Pook Swan Bar
This is another
Pook Bar location and is on Soi Bukaow. This is quite big place with the front part open
to the street. You can see many of the Ladyboys dancing on the poles from the outside,
so you have an opportunity to shop before you go in. Sitting here chatting up ladyboys
is a good spot to see all the action on this busy Soi.
In Soi Diamond, halfway up the soi on your
left heading up from Walking street. Usually 5 or 6 ladyboys hanging
around out here so you will know you found the right place when you
see that. Very dark in here; always about 15-20 girls working in this
place, but we have noticed that the overall quality level has gone
down in recent years. Worth checking out just to see it one time and if you survive the
experience it's something to brag about to your kids!
Walking street in Pattaya, about 50 meters
up from the old Jenny Star and on the same side. I's Halloween every night here! This is an old
Pattaya institution and it shows on the girls; we have never seen anyone in
this bar even remotely worth taking home. Seems to be between 5 and 10
ladyboys per night working in here but they often look like drag queens.
This is the only real bar left on walking street and a decent place to
have a beer and watching the crowds go by. You may not find a ladyboy to take home
here but you never know.
Hi Boss Bar
On soi 6, also called soi
Yodsak, this is a great
street lined with bars up and down both sides and a bit more than
halfway down on the left side is the Hi-Boss 2000, owned by Chatchai.
Spooky lounge-type set up with couches and even a dancing pole and
hi-backed chairs situated around a long bar. They have some particularly nasty short time
rooms right upstairs, you
can take a girl up there for an extra 200 for 2 hours and have fun.
Check this place out if going to Pattaya, for
sure. This bar opens at around 2PM in the afternoon and goes until
1AM; after that the girls can be found hanging around police stations and /or illegal card
games on third street!
Sally's Beer Bar
Run by a ladyboy and her British husband,
this beer bar on soi 4 in Jomtien has between 7 and 10 ladyboys and 5
or 6 ladies working in there on a regular basis. Nice place, the
owners play good music, and they have a friendly attitude. Good place
to meet ladyboys to play pool with. The talent recently is a bit slow as the money
makers stay in Pattaya, but it's still worth the 10 baht bus ride to Jomtiem for a
cheap beer by the sea breeze in the afternoon.
Hema Cabaret A very friendly and surprisingly good quality
FREE show happens thrice nightly here. It's on the corner of second road and soi 8.
Extremely good value too. The beers are insanely cheap and the hostesses are great
fun. It's a bit hot and humid but if you can weather the weather then plonk your butt
down on a bar stool and enjoy the fantastic costumes and routines of an above average
Other Places to meet Ladyboys
Anytime after 10PM will guarantee you
the chance to meet ladyboys. And you'll probably be pickpocketed also and generally
feel pretty nasty about the place. We would not vouch for the quality of
these girls, and remember it is pretty dark down there. But if you are desperately
short of cash, blind and desperate then Beach Road is for you! It has
also been known to be dangerous down here and the police make frequent
sweeps now. Our advice; find somewhere else in Pattaya to meet ladyboys.
It's behind the VC hotel on Pattaya 2; Pretty much hit and miss really. This is a famous
gay area and most of these bars are for gay boys, but some of the bars in here have
some cute femboys working in
them also. These fresh-in-from-the-country types are just
being broken in at Pattaya and starting work here. Check ID cards on
these little minxes to avoid problems. Kaos has
young and cute ladyboys in transition but that place is always in
flux. It's extremely expensive in the Go Go bars so my advice is to just pop your
head around the corner first before you make the decision to stay inside.
good thing about all the bars here is that you won't get hassled by pushy wait staff
or aggressive workers once you are inside and sat down. But at the end of the day there
is nothing guaranteed about Sunee Plaza. You may get lucky and meet a gem every night
or you may go for a week and strike out.
The largest and best cabaret in Pattaya and
home to some of the most lovely ladyboys in the Kingdom. The Miss
Tiffany is a hit nationwide every year and features the cutest
ladyboys in Thailand on the Tiffany stage. This place is on the 2nd
road in Pattaya and is worth seeing their high-quality show at least
once; but meeting with these girls is sometimes hit-or-miss. Like many
cabaret girls, these girls are not very good with english and may
appear stand-offish at times. But be friendly and cordial and don't
just talk about sex and you may have a chance to take home one of
Similar to the Tiffany Show above, this is
another large show in Pattaya which features beautiful ladyboys from
all over Thailand. Basically, whatever you see above for Tiffany
applies here; if you like Cabaret shows this should be another one on
your agenda. Same deal with the ladyboys also; you can take photos
and chat up a few and maybe get lucky!
Phuket (or Shemale
Island) is another option for serious ladyboy lovers. If the city of Bangkok is too busy and
smoggy or you want beaches that Pattaya can't offer then there is Phuket. And of course the biggest and best ladyboy bar in town
is Cocktails & Dreams . AsianTS.com has
featured this bar and many of the models who work here over the years. Your host Jimbo will
welcome you with open arms (for the price of a beer!) and introduce you to some of the finest
Asian ladyboys on the planet. And if that's not enough he'll even show you around the rest of
the island where there is a lot more talent around. We have mentioned just a few of the
places to go in Phuket and if you can think of more then please let me know and I'll update this
Soi Bangla; The hub of all the action on the
Phuket and the place you want to be in this wonderful island. Begin on Soi Bangla, which is
the main strip that divides
this beach resort down the center. There are always freelancers on
this street between about 9PM and 2AM and you don't even have to
look... they will find you!
On the left-hand side coming up from the beach road is a
large cluster of bars called the Soi Andaman Queen based on the large
sign out front which you can not miss. This place is also called Soi
Kathoey and Soi Crocodile. Just ask anyone and they will know where
it is. It is all one big carnival of ladyboys, as on any given night you will see
between 30 and 40 very beautiful ladyboys walking around looking for
dates. A truly amazing place. There are also the occasional post-op
mixed in here so always ask first, and once you walk towards the rest
rooms in the rear it is all Lady-Only.
At the end of the Soi, there is a small cabaret called the
Andaman Queen, hence the name of the Soi. Some very beautiful ladyboys
work in here and it is a great place to watch a very camp drag show.
Some of the girls look awesome under all that makeup and this is where
we discovered our very first model for AsianTS, Emmy. A bit further up Soi Bangla from the
beach is the Tiger
Disco complex, also on your left-hand side.
Royal Paradise Complex;
This complex of hotels and bars and
cabarets is the main gay area of Patong, but that doesn't mean you can
not get laid here. On any given night there are 30-50 ladyboys
strolling the grounds here, and indeed many of the ladyboys on Phuket
live right in this very complex.
The Tangmo; a great place on
the left-hand side as you go in
the 'Entrance' side of the one-way Paradise complex. Large cabaret,
nice place with nice decor, and usually 15 ladyboys or more putting on
a good show here nightly. Friendly people and the manager Tak is very
nice and will take care of you. This place is gay most of the time,
and they have 2 shows with ladyboys in them; it is not a strictly
ladyboy bar. Many many transitional ladyboys work here, young 18 and
19 year old ladyboys just in from the country and starting off on
their journey into being ladyboys. If you like that style, you will
like it here.
My Way; Another gay disco like the Tangmo,
across the street
and down about 50 meters on the opposite side.this place is loaded
with boys 75% of the time but for 2 shows per night they bring in the
10-15 ladyboys who put on a great show. Some real cute ladyboys work
in here and they are all very approachable and nice.
; Almost exclusively gay, this place nonetheless has
some ladyboy shows once in a while. Great place if you are gay and
have interest in boys, but kind of a dead zone for ladyboys. Same side
as the My Way, on the corner and across from the Royal Paradise hotel.
Very famous gay hang-out, known worldwide.
Simon Cabaret; On
the road that leads towards Karon beach
but only about 2 miles from Soi Bangla is the Simon Cabaret. Without a
doubt some of the most beautiful ladyboys in all of Thailand work here
and in their sister cabaret, the Simon Chiang Mai. This one is very
popular with the tourists and employs about 40 beautiful ladyboys and
post-op's. Beauties like Aoh and Amy and Ji all work here, and that is
just a fraction of the talent here. Go there and watch the show and
then chat up the girls outside; you will see they are all charming and
The Beach Road; This name speaks for itself and is
easy to find. Only one problem; many of the girls that work here have
been banished from the Soi Bangla bars and are working here because
they have no where else to go. Not ALL the girls of course, but some.
With that said, you CAN find cute ladyboys on the beach road for sure.
They hang around on both sides of the street between the KFC and
Bangla between about 11PM and 3AM. Good prices down here; just be
careful for your wallet. About 15-25 ladyboys walking this strip in
the dry season.
Just in case you missed the count there, we just showed you
an example of the places you can meet ladyboys and about how many are
in each place; the total of this list was over 150 ladyboys! And we
are being conservative; for a very small place, Phuket Island has a
very large concentration of ladyboys! Follow this page, and check out
all the updates we have devoted to this lovely island paradise inside
the website. AsianTS fully endorses any trip you may be considering
in taking to Phuket, it is a great place!
Other places in Thailand
This is still one place that we have to explore more of; we
know that Chiang Mai produces some of the most beautiful ladyboys in
the world, but we still don't know where exactly to meet them in this
gorgeous city because we have only been here a few times and there are
no dedicated go-go bars or places to specifically meet ladyboys. For sure we would
recommend the Simon Cabaret, which is the place where we
found Dina, Ponlien, Gau and Yoh and so many other beauties that we have here. Just get
into a tuk-tuk and tell the guy you want the Simon and he will
know where to take you; it's kind of a cruise so don't try to walk
it or find it yourself. When the show ends at the end of the
night, the girls all gather around the exit of the cabaret and chat
and take pics with the tourists; this is the time to go over and chat
up these girls, and try to take one home. They are all extremely
friendly and nice, and will chat with you no problems. Great place, 30
or more ladyboys working there, and all beauties.
There was also a small
cabaret downtown that we found, near the water fountains and kitty
corner with the last fountain in the long row that separates the
main drag of the city. We found Note and Cee in this cabaret,
which doubles as a boxing ring the other half of the time. Not a
very nice place but you may get lucky and meet one or 2 cuties
here; we also met Ae and Nan here.
We have also heard that there is a
thriving ladyboy scene in the university crowd here, but it seems
like that would be a tough nut to crack. Getting in friendly with
these beautiful CM college kids would be heaven on earth if you
could pull it off. Like many university campuses around Thailand,
the one at CM has many future shemales going to school there.
Ponlien from the Simon also told us that there are many
ladyboys in Tapar road but we never had the chance to go and check
that out. Could be a good place because she says that many of her
friends work down there. We have also seen huge groups of ladyboys
walking around the downtown area's together late at night, about 20-30
of them inside the old walled city. Some of these girls are freelancers and are very
young; be careful. Some others work in the cabaret's and are just
looking for some spare cash. As usual, the girls that can be found
here and actually anywhere in the Chiang Mai area are some of the
most beautiful ladyboys in the entire world.
This is a place that we had an
extensive visit to in late 2003 but
that was the last time we have seen it, the scene could be much better now. From what we saw then,
Chewang Beach is the place to be, and the Christy's Cabaret show has a ton of
ladyboys hanging out before, during, and after the show. The scene on the main drag in front of this cabaret
has about 20 ladyboys cruising the streets looking for dates, and many more inside. However, this was really
the ONLY place we could find that has a large concentration of ladyboys. There was another smaller cabaret
down the street not too far from Christy's, but we only saw 4 or 5 drag queens out there one night. There
is also a smattering of ladyboys working in beer bars here and in Lamai, but good luck meeting them. You can
also meet ladyboys after midnight in Chewang at the great Soi Mango strip of beer bars and
discos, which for some reason never felt the pinch of the nationwide "morals" crackdown and can stay open
You CAN meet ladyboys in Koh Samui , and could even meet 6 or 7
different ones you would like to hold you through a week-long vacation. But all-in-all if you want to have a
beach vacation combined with great nightlife, we would recommend that you stick with Phuket.
