What is a Bangkok freelancer?

Before we get into all that lets explain what is a Bangkok freelancer. In the west this has a very different meaning but here in Bangkok and all over Thailand a freelancer refers to a freelance escort who has chosen to work in Bangkok or some other tourist spot and offers her services as an independent worker. Unlike bar girls or girls employed at massage parlors, freelancers operate independently, free from any bar rules or minimum working hours, drinks etc. They have the freedom to select their clients they talk to and at the end go with. Bangkok freelancers have the right to refuse potential clients which is not always available in massage parlors and Gogo bars, creating a unique dynamic in their line of work. There two distinct types of freelancers emerge: full-time freelancers and part-time freelancers.

Most of the girls working as a freelancer or in any other adult entertainment venues around Bangkok usually do it to support their family back home in the north. I would say most of them are not Bangkok native and were born mostly in the north and came here because they saw some other family member, friend or neighbor come home from Bangkok with lots of things and cash and wanted that life too.

Different types of freelancers

Full-time freelancers dedicate themselves entirely to the freelance industry, relying solely on this profession for their livelihood. Their income to support themselves and usually a kid and family relies upon their ability to secure clients consistently. In contrast, part time freelancers lead a different lifestyle. They typically hold regular jobs or are students and seek additional income for various reasons, such as rent, family support, or fulfilling personal desires like purchasing the latest iPhone. Every girl has to have the lates iPhone pro 😀 For these girls, freelance work becomes a part-time endeavor, varying from once a week to sporadic occurrences throughout the year.

Who are these women and why do they do it?

The main reason behind freelance work for many individuals in Bangkok stems from the limited income prospects available to young Thai graduates with about a monthly earnings ranging from 20,000 to 30,000 baht, equivalent to 600 to 900 US dollars, the options for well-paying jobs are often scarce and much lower for those without higher education. The job market in Thailand presents its own set of challenges, with limited opportunities for those lacking extensive qualifications.

Working at 7-11 usually is not a good way to improve your life and your family’s life. As a result, freelancing emerges as an alternative means to supplement their income and navigate the complexities of financial stability and taking care of your family which is very important in Thai culture. Sensitivity and empathy are essential when discussing the motivations behind individuals choosing to pursue freelance work. At the end they are also humans with feeling and desires not just robots there purely for your pleasure. So have your fun but be respectful and you will have a great time and get much better service.

Where can i find Bangkok freelancers?

Now, where can you find these Bangkok freelancers. Despite common misconceptions, freelance services are not ubiquitous throughout Thailand. These services tend to be concentrated in specific areas, predominantly those frequented by tourists. Locations like Khao San Road, often known to be visited by budget-conscious backpackers, had a limited offerings in terms of freelancers. But the people staying at or going to Khao San Road has changed in the last few years and a lot of young and well off tourists love the area and this also attracts young and fun hungry girls so this place is a good place to start your search but i would recommend it more for the younger crowd. It is a party spot and there will be working girls but hard to know who is who as it is quite popular now.

For those seeking encounters with Thai Bangkok freelancers, the Soi Nana area proves to be a prime hunting ground. This vibrant district not only offers ample opportunities to connect with freelancers but also provides a safe environment for exploration, free from most scams. Exercising common sense is crucial and never get too drunk so you can have a trouble-free experience.

While navigating the streets of Soi Nana, keep a keen eye out for solitary Thai girls wearing alluring evening attire. These girls are either awaiting the arrival of a friend or, more likely, freelancers seeking potential clients. Their clothing tends to be more revealing, and their gaze brims with confidence , often accompanied by generous eye contact. When a Thai girl locks eyes with you and flashes a captivating smile, consider it an unmistakable green light to approach and initiate a conversation. However, exercise caution when approaching individuals waiting near bus stops, as they may not necessarily be freelancers ;). Bangkok freelancers are known for their captivating eye contact and flirtatious demeanor, making them easily distinguishable from others in the area. Be careful as some aren’t real women so unless you want to make sure you are actually taking a real woman with you.

The realm of freelancers extends beyond the streets of Soi Nana, encompassing the pulsating nightlife of Bangkok. Nightclubs within the Soi Nana district offer an additional avenue to encounter freelancers, provided you visit them during the peak hours of midnight to 2 am. It is important to note that numerous nightclubs in Bangkok cater to locals and are not a good place to find freelancers but not impossible.

But to experience the essence of Bangkok freelancers, one must venture beyond the boundaries of Soi Nana and explore the lesser-known establishments that come alive during the late hours. It is here that unchosen go-go bar girls, seeking a late-night connection, transition into freelancing. These moments present a unique opportunity to engage with these girls outside the confines of the typical go-go bar setting, opening doors to fun encounters and sexy connections. There places change a lot so you can ask a local taxi driver he would know the clubs and since he gets a kick back for every foreigner he brings he will be more than happy to take you there.

If you did not find a girl you like around Nana plaza you should try Sukhumvit soi 11 which is the tourist street to be at, with a lot of girls going straight there. Among the Weed vans selling marijuana on the street you can find these girls walking around and just as in Nana if a girl is standing alone and looking around and if you look at her she smiles and keeps eye contact it is safe to say she is out to have fun and make some money.

Find Bangkok freelancer online

In the digital age, technology serves as an indispensable tool for connecting with Thai girls, and freelancers in Bangkok are no exception. Online dating apps have gained immense popularity among travelers seeking meaningful connections. This is by far my favorite way to meet many new women. Platforms like ThaiFriendly and Tinder offer a great way to engage with a diverse range of individuals, including tourists and locals alike. To fully immerse oneself in the realm of Bangkok freelancers, one must explore unconventional avenues. Enter WeChat—a Chinese messaging app like Line and WhatsApp, but it has a unique “discover people nearby” feature.

Freelancers and girls looking for fun in Bangkok utilize WeChat as a means to connect with potential clients. By enabling location services and activating the “discover people nearby” function, users can instantly connect with people and freelancers in close proximity. A private message is all it takes to initiate a conversation, with freelancers often responding promptly. Get with the times and embrace the power of technology and unlock a world of limitless possibilities :).

Bangkok bars with freelancers

While the streets and digital platforms serve as common meeting grounds, the realm of bars also offers a good avenue to encounter freelancers in Bangkok. Along the vibrant stretch of Soi Nana, an assortment of bars dots the landscape, so not just the streets are full of women looking to go to your hotel room. Looking in these bars you can identify freelancers sitting alone and enjoying a solitary bottle of beer or engaging in casual conversations within small girl groups.

Here, it is important to draw a distinction between conventional bars and go-go bars. The gogos, primarily employ their own staff and there are no freelancers. Here you have girls working in the bar where you have to pay a “fine” to the bar to take the girl out and then pay the girl for her time. The other bars in Sukhumvit soi 4 are open to everybody and usually have pool or something to entertain the guests and these are full of independent working girls.

To experience something different, venture into unconventional establishments like the renowned Thermae Cafe. Frequented by a diverse array of freelancers, this establishment offers a captivating glimpse into old world of Bangkok freelancers. The girls are just standing around and you can sit and drink and even eat. While this mostly caters to Japanese customers so some will not be interested in western foreigners there are still plenty to choose from.

Price of Bangkok freelancers

So what are the going rates for freelancers in Bangkok? The price range typically fluctuates between 2,000 and 5,000 baht, depending on factors such as appearance and age. It is very uncommon to receive quotes out of this range. While Pattaya freelancers might charge less, the city of Bangkok is a bit more expensive in every aspect. Negotiation is possible, but it requires finesse and tact to strike a balance without appearing like a cheap Charlie or disrespectful. Remember, the value of the experience surpasses monetary concerns. It is essential to approach such encounters with respect, ensuring a mutually gratifying experience for all parties involved. If the girls likes you even a little bit and enjoys your company then the whole experience will be much better. Maintain a sense of self-awareness and mindfulness throughout the process.

Is it safe to hire a freelancers in Bangkok?

Safety remains the biggest concern when engaging with freelancers in Thailand. Surprisingly, Bangkok freelancers have gained a reputation for their friendliness and warmth, surpassing that of their counterparts from various other nationalities. One thing that comes up most is the ladyboy freelancers that seem to often use the opportunity to either steal something or cheat you in some way. While it is true that reckless behavior and excessive alcohol consumption may attract opportunistic individuals looking to exploit vulnerable situations, exercising common sense and responsible behavior ensures a safe and memorable encounter. Treat the freelancers with kindness and respect, and you shall receive the same in return. It is imperative to trust one’s instincts and walk away from any situation that raises concerns or feels off. Remember, personal safety should never be compromised. And if you take them to your hotel room put everything in the safe. You don’t want to wake up in the morning and find you lost your watch, tablet or something else.

In conclusion, the world of Bangkok freelancers beckons with its sex allure and enigmatic charm. From the vibrant streets of Soi Nana or Sukhumvit soi 11 to the digital realm of WeChat, from the captivating bars to the late-night clubs, opportunities are plentiful for those seeking the thrill and companionship offered by freelancers in Bangkok. Embrace the adventure, exercise caution, and savor the extraordinary moments that await in the hidden corners of this captivating city.
