I have documented the questions that get frequently asked or that are important to know regarding Thailand. I have created this section for quick and efficient reference to certain questions. This will get updated as necessary.
Is low season cheaper to travel to? Are prices cheaper for girls?
No not really, and this is actually a myth. Prices for drinks, Lady drinks, food, massages, transportation, bar fines are the same year round. What you will find that is cheaper are hotels, air flight tickets, and sometimes prices for freelancers. There are also times where you could get a better price from bar girls, or in a go go because there are less customers and she is more open to negotiate a better price.
Should I stay in Pattaya or Bangkok longer? How many days is good for Pattaya?
I recommend usually to start and end your trip in Bangkok. Most people arrive in Bangkok because of the international flights. A good idea would be to stay 3 nights in Bangkok at the beginning and 3 nights at the end. When you arrive you will be most likely jet lagged. At the end of your trip it is much better to stay in the city of departure of your flight and not rush anything. Both cities are amazing but the Pattaya nightlife has more of a vacation feel to it. It is a beach town and has a more laid back vibe. A simple two week vacation in Thailand could be 3 days Bangkok to start, 8 days Pattaya and finish off with 3 nights in Bangkok. You need at least a week for Pattaya to get a feel for it, there is too many things to do there. With this guide you will not waste time figuring out where all the hotspots are, but I still recommend minimum 1 week for Pattaya. Keep in mind that the Philippines is also interesting, and lots of potential. Check out summermartel.com for some great freelancers.
Can You Tell Me Where To Find European or Russian Girls in Thailand?
I have an article specifically for that. Read more on Russian girls in Pattaya. Patong also has quite a few Russian chicks. So Does Bangkok. But If I were to choose I would say Pattaya has the most Russians out of all the cities in Thailand
I need more information on ladyboys, can you tell me prices, and best place to find them in Thailand?
I am in the process of writing more about them, but you can go ahead and check out this site for a great explanation of ladyboys in South east Asia and Thailand.
I have heard Pattaya is not the same as before on internet forums, can you please tell me how Pattaya is at the moment?
I can easily say that each time I go to Pattaya I have an amazing time, if not better than the previous time. Yes certain things have changed. For example it has a more tourist vibe to it, prices have gone up but please understand that prices have gone up everywhere. In my own city back home prices have also gone up. They are not the same as they were 10 – 15 years ago. Some things have changed for the better, infrastructure and business standards have gotten better over the years. Pattaya is still great and a really good value, and there are plenty of Thai women around.

What airlines do you recommend for travel within Thailand? What are the cheapest airlines to travel to other Thai cities?
NOK air and Thai Lionair both offer great service for excellent prices. In my experience they are the cheapest option. They have promotion deals year round. Check directly on their website for the best deals.

Are ladyboys safe to hook up with?…Please write more about Ladyboys
Generally speaking they are as safe as normal girls. You will have to use your own judgement and instincts to see whether or not they can be trusted. This is more of a concern with freelancers. With ladyboys that work in bars it is more safe as you know where they work. As always take care of yourself and make sure you do some due diligence whenever you meet anyone. Read more about about Ladyboys in Thailand.
I want to see some other cities besides Pattaya and Bangkok. Can you recommend where else to see
You could also see places like Chiang Mai, Phuket, Hua Hin, and Udon Thani. Keep in mind that each place has things you can appreciate, and the only way to see if you like it is to visit for yourself. See my city articles for an in-depth guide to each city.
