Some people come to Thailand for the stunning beaches and awesome parties.
Some come for the tasty food.
And some come for the sausage fest – Thai ladyboys!
Thailand performs the most hormone treatments globally, with Iran of all places coming in at number two.
This includes sex reassignment surgery and hormone therapy.
So, you’ll find an abundance of Thai ladyboys, lgbt people, and many other Asian ladyboys and shemales in the Land of Smiles.
But how do you find them?
Let’s dive deep into where you can find a ladyboy in Thailand.
Best Areas in Thailand to Find Ladyboys
There are so many Thai ladyboys up and down the country.
Obviously, Bangkok is where you are likely to find the most.
The seaside city of Pattaya comes in at a close second; it’s notorious for being a haven for temptation.
One of the biggest surprises in our guide is likely Kanchanaburi.
This historic town may be small, but it’s full of hidden gems.
It can also give you an extra level of privacy with your soon-to-be Thai ladyboy lover.
During the day, this area is the city’s financial center, but at night, it comes to life.
The famous red-light district Patpong is located here, with an array of go-go bars and strip clubs.
Silom is also home to a nice selection of cocktail bars, nightclubs, and rooftop bars.
Silom tends to draw semi-professionals and local celebrities, so if you intend on exploring the area, do dress to impress (no flip flops, please!).
Also, the Thai ladyboys here love a man who looks like a million baht, and chances are they will find you before you find them.
Here are a couple of places to check out first:
- King’s Corner 2 – Situated in Patpong, King’s Corner is a bar teeming with gorgeous Thai ladyboys and Asian shemales. You can get beers at 130 bahts and lady drinks at 200 bahts.
- Maggie Choo’s – Part of the Novotel Bangkok Silom Road Hotel, this speakeasy-themed bar is visually stunning. It is also a common watering hole for Bangkok’s middle-class socialites and sexy Thai ladyboys who want middle-class socialites too.
Nana is often the go-to for partying in Bangkok. There are so many bars and clubs catering to just about everyone.
Even better is that the area is dotted with heaps of restaurants and street food that stay open late into the night.
There are also a lot of Thai ladyboys and Asian shemales in Nana.
You can find a crossdresser on almost every corner.
While you could hit Levels nightclub or Spicy where there is a small chance of finding a ladyboy, there are some spots where it’s guaranteed.
- Temptations – Located on the middle floor of Nana Plaza, this Thai ladyboy bar is full of delicious damsels in distress looking for their white knight. The bar fine is around 600 baht, and the lady drink is around 150 baht.
- Cockatoo – Situated in soi cowboy, they serve a nice variety of Japanese drinks and lots of space to sit. The bar fine is 600 baht, and a lady drink is around 140 baht. There are a few sex workers here too.
Khaosan Road, Bangkok
Bangkok’s tourist hub is often the go-to spot for budget backpackers though ex-pats like to flock there on weekends too.
The road is 1km of restaurants, bars, clubs, and guesthouses.
If you walk around Khaosan Road, you will likely spot a ladyboy or two.
They too, are on the hunt for some farang fun, and you could be that lucky person!
If you somehow can’t spot a Thai ladyboy down Khaosan, there are a few spots not too far that you can go to instead.
- The Club – This huge 3-level nightclub can fit 1,500 people and has many international DJs and parties. It’s also a popular spot for Thai Ladyboys who have a thing for foreigners.
- Superflow City Beach Club – Paradise-themed bar with bucket cocktails and DJs. It’s down a cool little alley in Khaosan. Thai ladyboys love to come here because cocktails are reasonable, and they can show off their bikini line.
Walking Street, Pattaya
The infamous walking street is the busiest and biggest party spot in Pattaya at night.
A full kilometer where every building along its length is a beer bar, restaurant, club, or go-go bar girls.
You will encounter so many beautiful babes as you explore the street.
There are some spots specifically where you can find Thai ladyboys.
Note: Another often overlooked spot in Pattaya is Boyztown. The gay red-light district will have a few ladyboys in the bars.
- My Way Beer Bar – This small Thai ladyboy bar is the best on Walking Street. The ladyboys here are certainly more behaved but no less fun. The bar fine is around 600 baht, and a lady drink is around 130 baht.
- Katoey’s R Us – This fairly new Thai Ladyboy bar serves cold beer, but the service is warm. It’s loud but isn’t that what you came for? The bar fine is around 600 baht, and a lady drink is around 150 baht.
Phuket is the biggest island in Thailand and a hugely popular tourist hotspot too.
There are heaps of hot shemales here.
Now, not all of them are prostitutes – many have regular normal jobs.
You can find a Thai ladyboy working in the shopping malls or hotels or just about anywhere.
Of course, there are easier places to look, like in Patong and the ladyboy bars there.

This beautiful little town is only 3 hours away from Bangkok, famous for the Death Railway and the stunning Erawan Waterfall.
There is a lot to see during the day, but at night it’s even more fun.
Kanchanaburi is a great place to find Thai ladyboys if you are looking for some discreet meets.
The main party spot is 1 long strip full of bars all nestled together.
Aside from being “cheap,” some of the bars have gorgeous Thai ladyboys.
At the start of Maenamkwai Rd is a small red-light district with about 10 bars.
There is not a lot of ladyboys, but there aren’t many ladyboy lovers here either.
Bar fines are as cheap as 200-300 baht. A lady drink is around 100-120 baht.
For more luck, head to these places first:
- Cuddle Bar – A friendly bar with a friendly owner. It’s a good spot for people-watching. Bar girls are friendly and polite. More a place for getting your pre-drink game on with the occasional ladyboy popping in.
- Easy bar – This bar has a few lovely bar girls and Thai ladyboys working, and it’s very laidback. If you can’t pull here, head to the little red-light district in defeat.

Ladyboy Pageants & Cabaret Shows
Not many have had the opportunity to see a pageant or cabaret show.
But if you do have the chance, take it!
Not only is it fun to watch, but you could also meet one of the stars!
Usually, at the end of a show, you can take a photo with the performers.
Sometimes this is an elaborate scam, and you have to pay a small charge.
But you can meet a Thai ladyboy looking her best.
Here are some of the best shows:

- Calypso Cabaret – Located in the wonderful Asiatique, Bangkok, this show is delightful to watch with some funny segments here and there. Opportunity to get photos taken with performers at the end of the show.
- Tiffany’s Show – This show is in Pattaya and probably one of the most famous ladyboys in Thailand. It’s a bit expensive and only really worth it if you happen to be in Pattaya.
Ladyboy-Friendly Hotels in Bangkok
OK, Thai ladyboy lovers.
Now that you know where to find them, you need to know where to take them.
While any kind of discrimination is relatively low, it’s still not completely zero.
So we found a list of hotels that are ladyboy-friendly.
This will also give you peace of mind.
There is nothing more worrisome than wondering if your date will get refused entry.
Some hotels may request to keep your ladyboy’s ID at reception as a form of security.
But generally, it is not something to stress about.
- Adelphi Suites Hotel – This hotel has a “friendly policy,” which means you can bring anyone back without some hidden charge. It’s also only 100m from Sukhumvit Soi, 8 and 5 mins from Nana Plaza, so very close to Nana BTS.
- Admiral Suites Bangkok – Located in Sukhumvit soi 22, this hotel comes with a swimming pool on the roof, and the rooms are spacious. It’s in a quiet area, so if you are looking for some discretion, this is perfect.
- Aspen Suites – Located in Sukhumvit soi 2, so close to the red light district of Nana. A room is roughly 1800 baht a night but so worth it. Your ladyboy lover will be required to leave their Thai ID card at reception, but it’s returned when they leave.
- Royal Asia Lodge – This hotel is great if you are on a budget. You can get a room for less than 1,000 baht a night. Its located in Sukhumvit soi 8, includes breakfast, and close to all the ladyboy bars.
Why are ladyboys so popular in Thailand?
It could be down to how Thailand is a Buddhist country, which is generally non-moralizing towards LGBT issues.
Another reason is that Thailand was never colonized so there was no western influence from other religions.
There have also been tales of Gods changing gender, which could have helped normalize tolerance for transgender.
Can I find post-op ladyboys in Thailand?
Yep, there is a bar called Voodoo in Nana Plaza that is all post-op ladyboys.
They will swear they were never born male.
What’s the best area to find ladyboys so you don’t bump into friends?
Kanchanaburi, it’s quiet but not empty.
There are a few bars where you can find a ladyboy.
