Looking for advice on Phuket - Gogo Bars, Beer Bars and Freelancers

Recommended Posts

Hey all,

So I'm planning a solo trip to Phuket after New Years (I'm in Bangkok over Christmas and New Years) and need some advice on the current situation around the gogo bars, beer bars and freelancers in Patong. Some websites have advice on Phuket however it's outdated so just curious what the current situation is like now.

I'm planning to stay 10 nights in Phuket and I plan to stay at a hotel within walking distance to Bangla Road.

I know the scene isn't as good as Bangkok or Pattaya but I wanted to ask if anyone has travelled to Phuket recently for the mongering scene.

  • Are there beer bars where you can barfine the ladies?
  • What is the average barfine and cost for taking out girls out for short time or long time in the gogo bars and beer bars?
  • Is the freelancer scene good for girls and what would be average prices to taking a freelancer?
  • Is there any specific escort sites such as Smooci that anyone uses while in Phuket that is recommended or should I stick to Thaifriendly or dating apps?


    Thanks!

I'm heading to Phuket in November and like you I have been doing research but bump into the same wall of out of date info.

After my trip I might be able to give you more up to date information as it will only be one month between when I was there and when you arrive.

From what I've gathered thus far I can answer a few questions.

There are also some in Soi Seadragon. the video below also shows beer bars but I can't pin point the place.

Depends on your definition of good. I've been reading prices of 2500 for ST and even 5k+

My personal fear is that yes there will be FL options but they will cost. And of course you'll be able to find a few that are sitting around 2500. But I keep reading about 5K. Will know more myself when I'm actually there.

I do hope you plan to do a lot of activities during the day. 10 days seems like a lot for Phuket if it's for mongering.
Unless there aren't any really budget constraints.

Thanks @CaribbeanDelight, this is helpful and I would definitely would like to get your thoughts after your trip.

10 days is long so I have plans for non mongering activities as well.

This sounds more like gogo prices. I can't imagine there's any street FL who's gonna collect 5k.

2500 is still a lot more than I'd be willing to pay depending on age/looks.

Forgot to share my experience.

I left Patong with mixed feelings. The hotel I stayed at had housekeeping issue, which affected my mood.
It was located in a great place though, close to the OTOP bar complex.

It felt over crowded and there were a lot of russians. You could see Thai's acting different around them.

Prices

Prices for almost everything where higher than in BKK and Pattaya.
If you go to the bars the prices drop. I felt the open bars were a better choice when picking ladies.

Gogo bar

Visited 3 gogo's and all of them hardly had customers.
The girls who were really pushy for drinks and left as soon as they saw they couldn't get a drink out of you quick enough.

Beer bar

Avoid 9 Dragon Sally's Bar on Soi Seadragon. The owner can't be trusted.

Tried a few bars, some have lookers others do not. Though I had a connection with one lady. But she was a pro. Knew how to give you that fake feeling it was mutual but quick to jump on another horse.

One place I definitely recommend is the OTOP bar complex, a lot of small bars. The level of ladies depends. At Caddy Shack 2 I felt they a higher level of ladies compared to the rest. Though still below Bangla road freelancers.
I spend the most time in the area as it was just laid back. Girls weren't pushy for drinks and we had fun playing games.

freelancers

I feel Illuzion is a great spot to pick up freelancers . The amount I saw there eclipsed all other dance clubs. I also loved this place as it is spacious. You can find any level of FL here. From the sub 6's to the top 9s.

You will see freelancers all over Bangla Road standing on the side, sometimes trying to pull a customer closer. But it's mixed. LBs and regular girls standing along each other, so be aware.

Thai Friendly

I lucked out but I read of another guy who had very good success.
Initially I was turned off to use TF by a very gorgeous lady who quoted 45oo for ST and 8000 for LT.
Didn't get a lot of reponses to my messages. It wasn't until later I discovered my location setting was off.
Once i fixed that the messages started to come in.

Massage salon

Though I didn't use any there were a lot on Rai Uthit Song, the read leading to Bangla. Felt the ladies were a bit more aggressive in getting a customer to stop.

Transportation

I mainly walked but the times I took a taxi it was just to expensive.
Compared to BKK and Pattaya the taxi's have a choke hold on the market.

If you take of one the red buses you can lower the price but you're mostly with other people going in a similar direction. So you need to plan this.

Best advice I can give is rent a motobike if you don't drink.

My take

Patong/Phuket isn't for everybody and definitely not for me. The amount of tourist really turned me off. The prices were a shock, despite having read they would be higher.

If you look below 30 you can snap up a few western girls.

Definitely mix it up with trips to islands nearby.

I spend 3 nights with the same lady. Nice face but not the best body. LT eventually was 3000 but she first quoted me 2000 to which staff corrected her. She bought me a gift when I left
