An interesting pastime for all who live full time in Pataya is watching the huge number of guys who migrate to this beach town every year in search of Pattaia girls. It's true that there are a lot of girls in Pattaya, but most tourists come to town with their lips looking at what life is really like here.
It cannot be denied that Pattaia, Thailand, has become known worldwide as a destination for sex tourism. The number of prostitutes in Pattaya is estimated to be over 20,000. It was even mentioned in the press as the sweetest city in the world.
On one occasion I met a 60-year-old woman from New Zealand who unknowingly came to Pattaya looking for a snorkeling adventure. She was so horrified by what she found on the streets that she refused to leave her hotel room in the dark.
It is no wonder that Western men come to Pattaya for thousands of people. Many male visitors have likened it to heaven on earth. There is actually a truth to this notion, but Pattaia has much more than sex itself. In fact, some very nice girls live there.
Most visitors to this part of Thailand use the term "Pattaya girls" interchangeably in the sense of "bar girl". In case you are unfamiliar with Thailand, the bar girl is a young lady who works at a bar, sells drinks, serves as a housewife, dances and hangs out with a clientele.
Pattaia derives its reputation from these bar girls, but as amazing as it may seem to many visitors, there are other types of girls here. In fact, there are plenty of beautiful Pattaia girls who stay away from bars, have never been to a bar and who would never, in their wildest dreams, think about being able to work at a bar.
These "pretty" girls aren't that hard to meet in Pattaya. They are everywhere actually. In Pataya, there are girls who work at banks, hotels, restaurants, supermarkets and all kinds of ordinary jobs. There are even girls in Pataya who work as doctors and lawyers. If you have a little personality, you can get to know each other and really have a relationship with one of them. By the way, they will do everything the girls at the bar do; they just don't do it with everyone.
So how do you go about meeting a pretty girl in Pattai? If you do not plan to be in the city for an extended period, it would not hurt to take Thai classes. There are several language schools in Pattaya offering basic Thai survival where they teach you basic language skills such as numbers, where, when and how vocabulary can make your life much more enjoyable in Thailand. Thai girls really appreciate that you made an effort to speak their language.
If you are planning to stay in the city only briefly, you should check out some of the websites on social networks that make it easy to meet Thai girls. Both Facebook and MiSpace have network settings for people in Thailand. HubPages is another site that has a community of people living in Thailand. Connect with some of these people before your trip. Start networking in advance.
Then there are dating sites that many people are reluctant to use. You may not like the idea of meeting your Thai girlfriend online, but this is actually quite common in Thailand. In some locations, girls have to pay to be listed, and guys pay for introductions. Other sites are completely free.
Finally, there is no substitute for just letting your personality shine and go over to the beautiful lady Pattaya and start a conversation. Pretty Pattaia girls are not shy or rude and are very receptive to meeting Western men.
However, you will have to go slow. Just be respectful and take your time. Most prominent Thai girls will want to associate a younger family member as a captain, such as a sister or niece. After a few selected meetings, if you are lucky, you will be taken home to meet your mom and dad. If everything goes wrong with your parents, you are there.
