An ever-increasing number of gay-friendly restaurants can be found all over Pattaya and Jomtien, particularly in the Jomtien Complex area.
Ladyboys ( are either 100% males who simply dress up as women (transvestites) or cross-gender “she-males” who have been surgically transformed into “women of the second category”, at least partially.
The only difference from straight bars is that the service staff, the hosts and dancers, are young and attractive males instead of bar girls.
In order to take a boy out of his bar you’ll have to pay a so-called “bar fine”.
Even a local gay festival called Pattaya Pride is held on an annual basis.
