Hey guys, this is Jesse Charger here, and in this video, I want to talk about Thailand.
Now, I spent about two weeks in Thailand in 2013, and I hit a bunch of different cities pretty quickly, and I want to give you my overall impression of the country, especially when it comes to women and dating or hooking up with girls.
Now, I’m not going to go into specific details about particular places like bars and clubs because they tend to change from year to year, and I wasn’t there long enough to give like a definitive review of the country or cities, so I want to keep it to my general impressions.
Now, one of the things that you will enjoy about Thailand is that it is extremely inexpensive. Taxis are super cheap. I think wages there are very low. So for example, you can get around in a taxi for a dollar or two. Depending on the city, prices vary as far as hostels and hotels, but it’s still very cheap. Bangkok is probably the most expensive, but you’re going to find it very affordable compared to Europe or even the United States.
Food is very inexpensive. If you’re coming from Europe, you’re going to find that the food is ridiculously inexpensive. If you’re coming from the United States where food is already very, very cheap in the US, you’ll find that food in Thailand is slightly cheaper than even the United States.
So, if you’re on a budget, you can certainly get by. For example if you’re outside of Bangkok, on a $5 a night hostel and a couple of dollars for food, so certainly $10 a day, you can manage and get by very inexpensively.
For example, I was staying at a hotel in the city of Chiang Mai during low season, $20 a night, huge room, full air-conditioning, breakfast included, very nice modern hotel. This gives you an idea of the prices. Of course, in high season, it’s going to be more expensive. When you’re in Bangkok, it’s going to be more expensive as well.
Ease and Convenience Report
The country is very convenient. It’s like built for tourists.
There are 7-11 convenience stores everywhere. You’ve got familiar chains like McDonald’s and Burger King and Kentucky Fried Chicken and Starbucks. There is ATM machines everywhere, so you don’t have to worry about getting your money out.
A lot of people speak English or at least enough. People can speak a little bit of English that you can get around, no problem in all the tourist areas. Anyone involved in the tourist industry is going to speak English. It’s almost kind of like a second language there, so it’s super easy to get around. It’s super easy to have access to money and your funds. There’s a lot of hotels and hostels and restaurants catering to foreigners and tourists. You don’t want to let the exoticness of it scare you off that it’s in Asia or something.
It’s a no-brainer to pull it off. Taxis are very inexpensive. It’s a very easy tourist city.
Now, some of the downsides of the economy is, well, it’s like a laissez-faire capitalist economy, so you can buy things very cheaply like clothes and electronics.
On the downside, everywhere you go in Thailand is kind of a chaotic mess. Like in Bangkok, it feels polluted. There’s just the buildings don’t match each other. A lot of the construction is ugly. The traffic is a snarly mess.
If you kind of like clean, orderly, maybe some of the cities in Europe for example Amsterdam or Stockholm, if you like that clean orderliness or even Tokyo, Japan, which has a very clean orderliness feeling to it, you’re not really going to find that in Bangkok.
Some people, that’s going to turn them off. Some people are going to love that. For me, it’s not exactly my thing. I like to see order in a city. I like to see cleanliness. I like to feel like it’s not polluted. I like to see a lot of green spaces, so I like that modernity in cities. So, it’s not particularly my thing. Even Chiang Mai, which is a smaller city, you’re out in the country, you don’t see all like these massive buildings, it still feels just a mishmash of construction and craziness and the sidewalks are like broken.
It feels like it’s kind of a barely functioning mess, chaos, but it’s cool in its own way. So, you should just be aware of that.
Now, one of the things where I think that kind of laissez-faire capitalism really has screwed up the country is in the islands.
For example, the area around Krabi, the islands off Ao Nang like Ko Phi Phi. I was there in low season again, and when you get to an island, it’s tropical beach. There are dozens and dozens and dozens of little motor boats bringing tourists over and just like anchoring off the beach, and the beaches that were these pristine paradises are now noisy. You can smell like diesel fuel. You can even see like diesel fuel in the water in some cases. It feels noisy, crowded, and polluted just because of the crush of tourists that are going to some of these more popular islands. I was told that it is nothing, that in high season, it’s ten times worse.
So, if you’re looking for a pristine tropical paradise, those days might be coming to an end or are already over.
From my understanding, ten years ago, you can still get away from it all on some of the main islands, but now, there’s no like environmental regulations. So, it’s like every man for himself, every little businessman who drives a boat can get in there, and it’s kind of a mess now. In fact, if you want beautiful islands and you’re an American, I would actually recommend you go to Panama or Costa Rica. Much closer, much more unspoiled, more environmentally regulated, so it’s a tiny bit more expensive, but you’re going to have a better experience.
Okay, now I want to talk about the party vibe. Is it good for partying?
Thailand what’s cool about it is it does have a very laidback party vibe to it. Girls are on vacation. They tend to be more uninhibited. They’re not near their parents. They’re not near their normal social anchors.
So, it’s almost like being in Las Vegas and what happens in Las Vegas stays in Las Vegas kind of attitude where the girls are just a little bit more wild, a little bit more carefree, a little bit more adventurous, and so, it kind of has this atmosphere of possibility in the air, which is pretty cool. A lot of the girls are using it as an excuse to drink a lot of alcohol, which they use a lot of excuse to have sex. If she’s somewhat drunk, she can have sex without feeling ashamed because it’s the fault of the alcohol, and a lot of the girls are looking to hook up, have a little romantic adventure. Maybe even if that’s not in their mind at the moment or when they go, they’re just more prone to fall into that role of having the romantic adventure if they meet a cool guy.
There’s lots of nightlife around, even on the small islands. Bangkok has good nightlife. Chiang Mai has good nightlife. Even in the low season when there’s not too many people around there, frankly in any of those places, I did find okay nightlife, and from my understanding, it’s much more busier in high season.
How Hot Are The Girls?
Now as far as the girls, personally I don’t find Thai girls particularly attractive. My take on them is that they are very tiny. They are very short. They don’t have breasts. They don’t have ass. They don’t have thighs. Their faces are not that great. I think if you’re into Asian girls, Japanese girls are maybe a little prettier.
Full disclosure, I’m not really into Asian girls, so it doesn’t help, but I didn’t find the Thai girls particularly attractive. Maybe if you have an Asian girl fetish, I don’t see why you wouldn’t like Thai girls, but if you’re not really into Asian girls, they’re not a super turn on. I think the tourist girls, the European or Australian girls are a lot hotter frankly.
Another problem with Thai girls is that I think the Thai language sounds very whiny and strange and kind of harsh on the ears. So, when a girl starts speaking in Thai, it’s a little bit of a turnoff compared to say Japanese, which to my ear sounds like a very elegant, pretty language to listen to. Thai sounds kind of like scratching your fingernails on a chalkboard a little bit. So, it’s kind of a turnoff.
I’d say it’s like the top like a really hot Thai girl to me, I would rate her at about 8 out of 10. That will be like the super ultimate Thai girl. I would say most Thai girls are like 5, 6 like completely forgettable and average.
Funny thing is that whenever you see an advertisement like on the television for a beauty product or for some food products, the Thai girl always looks like she’s half-Caucasian and half-Thai or almost like half-Japanese and half-Caucasian. So, they don’t even use the look of their own people in their advertisements, and the prettiest girls you’re going to see in Thailand are those girls in the advertisements that look half-Caucasian in my opinion.
As far as the European girls and the tourist girls and the Australian girls, it’s like everywhere else, most girls it’s on a bell curve. Most girls are going to be 6’s, 7’s, and 8’s.
There’s going to be that occasional 9 that you can find, possibly a 10. I did see a couple and talked to a couple there when I was there.
Now, you might rate them actually higher because for example if you’re at the islands, they’re going to be in bikinis. If you’re not used to seeing girls in bikinis, you’ll probably going to rate the girls even higher. A lot of the girls are pretty friendly because they’re on vacation. They’re open to meeting people. So, that’s kind of feed into your ego, and you might rate them higher for that because they’re just kind of more fun and more open than maybe back home. So, instead of a girl who you would normally rate as a 6 in normal clothes being at home, you might rate her as 7 or 7-1/2 if she’s in a bikini and being friendly to you and drunk. So, it’s kind of play tricks on your mind a little bit in the rating system, but I would just rate them as normal and average with the occasional super hottie thrown in.
But just to dispel any idea that it’s full of 9’s and 10’s and perfectly hot girls, it’s not. They’re normal girls.
9’s and 10’s
I would say if you are really after super hottie 9’s and 10’s, it can almost be more fishing to go to just anyone Caucasian girls, to go to Europe. This is particularly advice for Americans.
Just go to Europe, and you’re going to be surrounded with a lot more Caucasian, European girls trying to get into some exclusive clubs dressed really nice, and that’s maybe like in some ways a more efficient way to meet the 9’s and 10’s than trying to go to Thailand and trying to meet the 9’s and 10’s. Thailand is more just about having fun, go with the flow. Don’t be super picky about the girls. Just go whatever is happening.
Sexual Competition In Thailand
Okay, so one thing that I actually forgot to mention about the party atmosphere is that I think one reason that the girls are more uninhibited and fun is because they have competition from the Thai girls. There’s actually a lot of Thai girl prostitution in Thailand, and you can have a girl for like as little as $20 or $30 and even a top-end girl for about $100, and that in effect sort of lowers the price of pussy, lowers the price of pussy where a guy can feel like there’s always options around.
For girls who want to be kind of prudish, the tourist Caucasian girls are going to be kind of prudish, guys can always turn to Thai girls. Basically, the Thai girls are bringing down the price of sex and creating more competition from the girls. It kind of creates a virtuous cycle where if there’s enough slutty girls, all the girls will try to compete to be slutty and sluttier, whereas normally back home, girls will not put out or be more resistant to putting out because that keeps the price of pussy high for all girls, and they can get more.
A girl can actually theoretically get more like a higher value guy if guys think that pussy is scarce, but in Thailand, sex seems more available because of all the open prostitution, very cheap prostitution there. Even if say most guys are not even partaking in it, it still brings down the price of pussy by putting more competitive pressure on the tourist girls.
So, you kind of have this vibe that sex is easily available, and I think that also feeds into the guys’ egos. Guys are going to feel that vibe, and the more alpha bold side of their personality can come out a little bit, so the guys become cooler because they feel like sex is easy. So, they become cooler dudes than when they were back home, which makes the guys more desirable in fact and just creates this virtuous cycle of easier sex than where you would find in your home country.
Now, as far as ratios, I was there in low season, the nightlife wasn’t that hopping at all. There was a little bit, but I would say that was 50-50 guy-girl ratio, not bad. I have been told that in high season, in some places, it can kind of become a cock farm where just groups of guys are going to descend on a place and there’s it could be even as bad as five guys to every girl in some places.
I think what happens is what when a place becomes popular and it becomes known for being cheap and a place to hook up, with how things spread on the Internet, how word gets around on the Internet, groups of guys will suddenly descend on a place in groups.
The thing is most guys will not cold approach. Most guys hate cold approaching. Most guys hate going to a place by themselves. Likewise, if they’re going to travel, they want to be surrounded by their friends. They want to have that safety net. So, when word gets around that there’s a paradise with girls and it’s cheap and it’s easy and convenient, then, you’re going to get the masses, the hordes of guys coming over. Once it’s okay. Once it’s socially permissible for them to go, and they’re going to go in their group, and what they’re going to do then when they get there is not to approach girls. They’re just going to drink like crazy because they would never approach a girl.
So, you get all these like pussy boys coming over. A lot of them are kind of jacked alpha guys, but they don’t know anything about pickup or the game, and they’re basically pussy boys underneath, and then, they kind of flood the venue with dudes, with this stag party kind of feels, and then, that kind of scares off the girls.
In some cases during high season, you actually have to get away from some of the main islands. You can actually do pretty well going on to some of the more secondary, less well-known islands that are more for the adventurous type that are quite not as well developed, if you want to escape the crowds that are moving in.
Where To Meet Girls
Now, where to meet girls?
For example, in the city of Bangkok, the city of ugly chaos in my opinion, but there’s some excellent malls like the CM Mall and the MBK Mall where you can walk around. These are very upscale malls, not MBK. MBK is not so much upscale, but these can be very good places to meet Thai girls. The Skytrain, which is like this public transit system on these big ugly concrete supported by ugly concrete pillars that rides above the highway, you can meet girls there.
Again, Thai girls didn’t really turn me on, so I did a little bit of experimenting, talking to Thai girls, but I wasn’t particularly motivated, and also hopping from city to city so quickly, I didn’t have so much time.
Chiang Mai is a very laidback and relaxed city where you can like ride elephants and pet tigers and do zip lining from tree to tree and go on bicycling through the rainforest sort of thing. You can meet Thai girls just kind of walking around. There’s a nice pretty mall in Chiang Mai as well, upscale mall where you can meet girls as well. It’s not a problem to meet girls in other words, no matter where you are. Not too many people are using cars. A lot of people walk around, and even if it’s hot and sweaty, there’s always kind of like a really nice mall that you can find to walk around in air-conditioning.
Who Should Go To Thailand
So, who should go?
I would say for Americans, Thailand is almost completely on the opposite side of the Earth. It can be a long tiring flight to get over there. I would say if you’re from the U.S.A, I would actually recommend Central or South America over Thailand. I think the girls are hotter. You have more girls with curves, and I think South American and Central American women are just prettier in general.
If you want adventure, if you want easy adventure where everything is handled for you and there’s ATMs and everyone speaks English, go to Costa Rica, go to Panama. It’s right next door. If you want wilder adventure, go to Brazil or Peru if you’re feeling a little more adventurous.
If you want rainforests, again Costa Rica is great, if you want to do like zip lining from tree to tree that sort of thing.
If you want European girls, you might as well go to Europe. I wouldn’t travel all the way to Thailand just for European girls. I think it’s just better to go to the source. That way you could hop over to Eastern Europe. You could hop over to Western Europe. The downside is it could be more expensive because Europe can be quite expensive, and even Eastern Europe is more expensive than Thailand.
So, I guess if budget is a really big thing for you and you can get a cheap flight over to Thailand, Thailand is not bad if you’re on a tight budget. If you have a little more money to spend, I would actually recommend Europe, and if you don’t want to travel so far, I would recommend go to South or Central America.
European guys, you’re closer to Thailand. You’re far from South America. You’re about same equal distance. Then, it’s up just to you, kind of depends on if you’re really more into Asian girls, go to Thailand. If you’re more interested in South American or Latin girls, go to South America or Central America.
Thailand again is very cheap, even more cheap than most places in South America, so that could be a factor in determining your budget. So, it’s kind of up in the air for European guys.
I would say too, I haven’t really traveled Asia that extensively, just because Asian girls are not particularly my thing, but I have been to Japan. For me personally, I would recommend Japan over Thailand, but it will completely come down to personal taste. Thailand has nice beaches. It’s more tropical. You’re going to find more girls in bikinis.
On the other hand, Japan feels more modern. It feels more organized. It feels cleaner. It feels much less polluted, which is much more attractive for me. I like that they have bullet trains, so you can get around very pretty Japanese gardens. I think the girls are cuter. I think the culture is more interesting in Japan, with the whole manga and anime and video game culture.
Basically, I kind of think that you get what you pay for whereas Japan is far more expensive than Thailand of course, it’s a better overall experience if you can afford it. If you can’t afford it, go to Thailand. Thailand is a perfectly fine second choice backup. It’s much more affordable.
So let me know what you think of the video. Leave me a comment below, and I will catch you in the next installment. I will catch you later.
