How to Rent a Girlfriend in Thailand?

Renting a girlfriend or finding girls who offer a GFE (Girlfriend Experience) is quite common in Thailand.

Many guys travel to Thailand and rent a girlfriend to travel with them for a few days or weeks.

But if you have never done this kind of deal before, there are a few things to know before you rent a girlfriend for the first time.

This includes where to find such girlfriends, how much it costs, and finally, a few tips to avoid common mistakes and scams.

Let’s start with the first step.

Where Can You Rent a Girlfriend in Thailand?

Honestly, anywhere and everywhere.

Since the average salary in Thailand is around $300 a month, many girls are always happy to accept extra income. Especially if you plan to take her on vacation, fancy dinners, and parties.

Gogo Bars and Lady Bars

Gogo bars and lady bars are probably the first things that comes to mind when you think of hiring a Thai girlfriend.
But there are a lot of downsides to hiring bar girls, from price to attitude.

On the plus side, they are used to this kind of stunt and are more open to special requests than regular girls.

On the downside, they know how much men are willing to pay for this kind of service, and they can be quite expensive.

And they are often not the hottest or most elegant you can find. They are fun to party with for a night, but maybe not the girls you want to spend days or weeks with.

Gentlemen Clubs

Hostesses and party models from gentlemen’s clubs are hotter than bar girls, often friendlier and more educated, but they are also more expensive.

Gentlemen’s clubs are great for finding the hottest young Thai girls for hire. You also have the opportunity to party with them and learn more about them before deciding which one you want to take with you.

But you have to be ready to pay a higher price.


Many nightclubs in Bangkok, Pattaya, and Phuket that are for foreigners and tourists have a lot of freelancers in them.

The hot Thai girl drinking at the bar with the sexy tight dress who starts staring at you as soon as you order a bottle; she is probably one.
Freelancers can give you the best or worst girlfriend experience.

So never commit too much on the spot you meet her. Spend a night with her and form your own opinion, but always stay on your toes.

While most of them are good girls, others are scammers and will run off with your money. And you will not be able to find them anywhere once they’re gone.

And if you want to hire a freelancer for a day, a week, or more, you should start negotiating prices right away. These girls are smart and know how much they can get.

Now, if you don’t want to go out and go through a painful negotiation with mamasans, there are alternatives.

Unfortunately, there are no websites aimed at guys looking for a girlfriend experience (if you decide to start one, DM us to promote it), but there are apps and websites that can help.

Escort Websites

Many escort services in Thailand also have girls who offer a girlfriend experience.

Go to their website, look at the girl you like, and contact the agency to see if she is available.

If you don’t want to go through an agency and want access to as many escorts as possible, including freelancers, you can use Smooci (read our review) for that.

Smooci is a free escort website that connects you directly with escorts, both freelancers and girls who work for agencies.

With Smooci, there are no middlemen, no membership required, no additional fee, and you can filter their list to find girls who offer GFE (girlfriend experience).

Thai Dating Sites

The other option is to go to Thai dating sites and ask girls if they are interested in spending some time with you.

The success rate will probably be lower there because most girls on dating sites want a date and are not looking for a paid gig.

But you have all the options in the world and millions of girls to choose from. And a chance to find a girlfriend for free. Something you will not find in bars, clubs, or escort websites.

So if you are willing to invest time and effort, sign up on Thaifriendly and get to work.

Sugar Dating Sites

Whether you call it sugar dating or arrangements, these types of dating sites have many benefits.

With girls you meet there, you don’t have to deal with drama, jealousy, difficult discussions about money, or misunderstandings.

You both immediately establish what you expect, how much it will cost, and then you can focus on the fun part.

A site like Seeking Arrangement is perfect for successful and well-off men who want to save time and find a Thai girlfriend who meets all their criteria.

Even if that means paying more for it.

How Much Does it Cost to Rent a Thai Girlfriend?

The cost varies greatly from one girl to another, even between girls from the same bar or agency.

But to give you a price range, here is how much it costs to rent a girlfriend in Thailand per day:

  • Bar girls: 1,500 – 5,000
  • Party models from gentlemen’s clubs: 5.000 – 20.000
  • Thai models/net idols: 3,000 – 50,000
  • Escorts: 7,000 – 15,000
  • Normal girls/Uni girls: 500 – 2.000
  • Sugar Babies: 500 – 5.000

As you can see, the price difference between a normal girl you met on a dating app and a famous Thai net idol can be really big.

But it at least gives you an idea of the different types of girls you can hire and the price tag that comes with it.

Remember, the more expensive does not always mean the best either.

Bar girls, escorts, and freelancers are used to providing this type of service. They know what you expect from them and are pretty laid back during the time they spend with you. But they also cost more.

Most normal girls are not used to being hired as a girlfriend. Even if you agree on details beforehand, they probably will not know what’s really going to happen, and that can lead to some confusing situations or arguments.

From our experience, the best options are:

  • Escorts, if your priority is sex
  • Dating apps, if you are looking for a real Thai girlfriend
  • Sugar dating sites, if you are willing to pay extra to get the hottest Thai girls and companionship ++.

A Few Tips on Hiring a Thai Girlfriend

Now before you start looking for your future Thai girlfriend, here are a few tips to keep in mind.

Be clear about the details (date, price, service…)

Whether you are negotiating through an escort agency, a mamasan, or directly with a girl, be clear on all the details.

You want to avoid any misunderstandings. Especially if you’re going on a trip with your new girlfriend.

Most of the bad stories we hear are just due to misunderstandings. So be clear about all the details of your trip. But not only about your trip.

Always be upfront about what you expect

Girls who work in the industry and girls who spend a lot of time in clubs with foreigners are used to hearing from guys who are looking for this kind of girlfriend experience.

Normal girls or young university students, not so much.

In either case, do not lie or hide anything. That’s the perfect recipe for disaster.

On the contrary, be open and upfront about what you expect from her, how much you are willing to pay, what you will and will not take on during the trip.

Like sugar dating, there are no rules. As long as you both agree and are comfortable with the arrangements, all the better for you.

But make sure you are both on the same page about what you are paying and what you are getting.

Respect your girlfriend

We should not have to say this, but unfortunately, it’s always necessary to bring it up.

Be respectful of your Thai girl (or anyone else for that matter ), treat her well, and take good care of her.

Most Thai girls are great women and will treat you like a king if you are a gentleman with them.

For the 1% of insane Thai girls out there, pay what you owe them and get out as fast as you can. Things will not get better with time, so leave as soon as possible.

Pay as you go

When you hire a girl from an agency or venue, you may be asked to pay a deposit.

This is common practice and is only to confirm your booking. Most agencies will not keep the deposit if you do not like the girl or things do not as expected. And from our experience, they always return the deposit when the trip is over.

But if you deal directly with a girl, always pay as you go.

We recommend paying a small amount when you first meet (never send money online to someone you have never met), then a little more each day or every few days. Depending on how long the trip is.

Cash is often preferred for this type of deal, so stop by an ATM before your first date.
