Most anyone you talk to knows that Thailand is known for having more than its fair share of ladyboys. So when people come here for the first time they may have to deal with a bit of culture shock adjusting to the amount of ladyboys that you will see. Pattaya is definitely Sin City of the East, and along with that tag are the beautiful women that live and work here as well as the third sex, the ladyboys.
Whether you are looking for women or ladyboys when you visit Thailand, also known as katoeys which is the Thai word, is not any of my concern. I don’t discriminate, I’m simply here to inform you of what to look for and where to go, or not go, depending on your preference.
So what are some of the easiest ways to spot a ladyboy? That is always a big concern for unseasoned travelers to the land of smiles. First and foremost is the presence of a cock! If she has a dick, that’s a dead giveaway that she’s a ladyboy.
In all seriousness, some of them will stand out and some may be more difficult to recognize as some of these photos will show you. If they are extremely tall, they are probably a ladyboy. This is not 100% accurate but pretty close. Thai women can be taller than say Filipinas, but they don’t normally stand 5’10” or above. The size of the hands and feet are another giveaway. If it looks like you can use her shoes as water-skis, she’s probably a ladyboy. Another dead giveaway is the presence of an Adam’s apple and a voice that sounds similar to James Earl Jones.
Another way to seriously spot ladyboys are the over exaggeration of feminine movements. Obviously women don’t have to go out of their way to walk like a woman, ladyboys do. If she walks like she’s a supermodel parading around on a catwalk at a fashion show then she’s probably a he. Also their aggressiveness is a tell tale sign. Aside from some of the women on Soi 6, women aren’t as aggressive as the ladyboys. If ladyboys approach you on the street, they will be very aggressive. You will notice this quite a bit by just observing the scene late night on Walking Street.
Ladyboys aren’t as shapely as women, however surgeries are popular and are on the rise in the ladyboy community, therefore it can make it more difficult to spot ladyboys. Using too much makeup is another giveaway. They are definitely trying to cover up some of their imperfections so that is something else to pay attention to. Ladyboys also hang out with other ladyboys. That is another way to tell whether she has a cock or not.
Now if you are looking for ladyboys then these are the places you may want to check out. Stringfellows on Soi 13/1, Obsessions on Soi 13/4, Jenny Star Bar on Walking Street near Marine Disco, Horny Bar Soi 6, So What Bar on Soi 6, New Orn Bar on Soi Diana, Pook Bar on Soi Buakhao and Soi 6. These are ladyboy bars. There are also ladyboys sometimes mixed in at some of the beer bars, as well as some of the short time bars on Soi 6, so you have to make sure if you’re looking for a women, not to go with a chick with a dick. There are also plenty of ladyboy freelancers on Walking Street and on Pattaya Beach Road. This is where most men will come into contact, whether you want it or not, with the third sex.
Now I’ve been here awhile and know what to look for, but there are still some that make me go huh? Every culture has their share of FUGLY women (FUCKING UGLY) and Thailand is no exception. Believe me, there are women in Pattaya that looked like they just fell out of the ugly tree, hit every branch on the way down, climbed back to the top and did it again! So there are ladyboys that obviously look a lot better than them, but they still have a prick, or at least had one before they had it snipped and turned into a makeshift pussy. Does that make you curious? Up to you!
I have a good friend here who has a friend that totally loves ladyboys. I met him briefly at his wedding and of course he brought his ladyboy companion. He says that ladyboys have the biggest cocks in Thailand. I’m not sure about that one, but maybe it’s because they try to hide their prick by taping it back between their legs. If that’s the case, then there is no need to waste your money on penis enlargement products, just buy some tape!
Whatever your preference is, it can be found in Pattaya. Just keep your wits about you when out on the town and consuming the alcohol. That may lead you to a case of mistaken sexuality as you can see from some of these photos. Pattaya has ladyboys galore and they aren’t going anywhere anytime soon.
