Pattaya Nightlife Story
Once the sun goes down and the Pattaya nightlife kicks into action, Thailand’s premier party town has a way of drawing you in. You might only have stepped outside for a cool refreshing drink but, if you don’t keep your wits about you, you’ll soon find yourself waking up the next day wondering what the hell happened and where your money went. The sights and sounds, as well as the warm night-time temperatures, all play a part in drawing you in.
There are a lot of Thai girls online that are just looking for some short-term fun with an exotic Westerner like you! Serious romance or no-strings fun is available on:

You’ll find that what was only intended to be a couple of drinks soon turns itself into a fun frenzy.
I’m reminded of a Pattaya nightlife experience that I had on one occasion after hitting upon an idea that should have saved me a few baht. Any foreigner that has used the ATMs in Thailand for any length of time will, at some point, hit upon the fantastic idea of drawing out a large amount of cash in one visit rather than drawing out a smaller amount and visiting more often. The plan is to avoid incurring too many 180 baht charges each time you use the ATM. Let me give you a piece of advice - get that money back to your home/hotel right away after withdrawing it... do NOT stop for a beer first!
I am partial to having a beer or two during the day; the Pattaya weather is ideal for it and, with the U.K. having a cold climate, I appreciate relaxing in the sunshine with a cold drink. My beer of choice is called Chang and at 6.4% alcohol by volume (it has actually been reduced to 5.5% these days), you don't need too much of it before events just sort of take over and start controlling themselves.
One of the cheaper bars... perfect for a daytime refreshment.
The thing is, if you're going to have a beer in the day, you don't
want to go anywhere flash. Somewhere nice and cheap is just fine. After
all, I've just taken out 10,000 baht from the ATM and avoided several
180 baht charges; having a cheap beer fits nicely into my cost savings
I know a good bar just off Soi Buakhao called the Triangle Bar and it offers a '2 drinks for 1' deal from 9AM until 9PM. Another bar nearby, located on Soi Buakhao, called the Katesiree House offers the large 660ml bottles of beer at really cheap deals, so those are the bottles I went for... after all, I am on a cost saving exercise here!
Pattaya Nightlife, GoGo's and a hangover
Skipping forward a few hours, I'm well underway with a beer crawl. I'm drinking with a fellow Brit who is on his holidays for a few weeks; naturally, the subject of Pattaya girls and GoGo bars comes up. The Thai girls in the best GoGo bars are a sight to behold. I ended up visiting several really good ones, of which I can recall two: Champagne agogo on Soi LK Metro, and Living Dolls Sowcase on Walking Street.
Meeting the sexiest Thai ladies for fun times is getting easier and easier to do via the online dating sites. A lot of girls like the extra discretion that is offered on:

It's all a bit of a blur, but I do know that I also went to Angelwitch
agogo just off Walking Street on Soi 15 (I know because one of the
waitresses there told me about it a few days later - apparently I had
been 'kee mao' or sh*t drunk).
Skipping forward a few hours more and I'm waking up by the swimming pool outside my condominium block. The sun's just coming up... I think it must have been about 6:30AM... I've got half a kebab in my hand and half a kebab spread around my shirt and face... and I'm still drunk! My girl was just leaving the condo as I walked in; silent treatment from her, fair enough I suppose.
Pattaya Nightlife; where did it go wrong?
After another sleep and a shower I’d sobered up a bit and started noticing that I was itching all over. Top tip: do not fall asleep outdoors in Thailand... the mosquitoes have no mercy. Altogether I counted over a hundred bites; if you've ever been bitten, you'll know that a single bite can drive you up the wall. Worse place for a bite: sole of your foot - absolute madness!
I went to check the damage to my wallet; there were a few coins in my pocket but the wallet was completely empty of cash! Not a single note left. I've had time to reflect on this and I've got several possible explanations:
- I was robbed. I'm putting this one at the top of my list. There's no way that I drank my way through 10,000 baht; I'd have died of alcohol poisoning after 3,000 baht's worth of Chang! I lost my Brit pal at some point and never saw him again, so he's one possible culprit. The girls are another... getting legless in the Pattaya nightlife scene comes with risk, so you'd better be in good company if you want to avoid opportunist thieves and so on.
- I gave it away. I know, I know... how likely does this one sound? I think it is a possibility. I might watch the pennies when I'm sober, but when I'm drunk the whole world is my best mate and it's easy to start feeling generous towards those less fortunate. Also, I was spotted in the early hours sat on the floor just round the corner from Walking Street. I had made some street beggar pals! One of my girl's friends was going to say hello to me but thought better of it when she saw the state of me and my new best mates.
- I lost it or overpaid my bills. Not sure on this, but it's possible.
- I spent it on female company. This one is here just because anyone who knows anything about Pattaya nightlife will immediately jump to this conclusion. I reckon I'd remember something if this is the cause, with at least 7,000 baht missing (after taking away legitimate costs), I could have got the company of 3 or 4 girls easily!
That about wraps it up; I reckon number 1 or 2 above explains the cash, but you can make up your own mind! Just don't forget my advice... if you withdraw a large amount of cash from an ATM, get it somewhere safe before you head out into the Pattaya nightlife fun.
