20 years ago even 15 years ago Thailand was a mecca for those looking for sex with underage girls and boys. Nowadays however, the trade is almost gone. And I say almost because it’s still prevelant but child trafficing is much more common now than payment for underage sex.
It was a paradise for guys who liked little girls. Now you’d be lucky to meet a girl under the age of 20 in the same places as you must be older than 20 to work in them.
Back in the day you could get a young girl maybe 13-15 for about 300 baht per hour I remember the girls by the train tracks were very open and didn’t seem to be pushed into anything either, they keenly exchanged money for sex.
The Thai government has however by pressure from NGO’s and mainly the US government rid almost all of that behaviour. Mai Sai the top of Thailand that borders Thailand and Burma was the most prolifent of child sex, there would have been 50 brothels catering to young children. Now there all closed down and you can see the noticable difference in people arriving in the small border town as well.
Nowadays the place that attracts the most pedophiles is Pattaya, Thailand. Pattaya is a well known place for sex for money and still to this day has young kids for sale. I must warn you though this is highly illegal to pay anyone for sex let it be a child or otherwise. A recent bust by local police in Pattaya found a madam selling underage children mostly to foreigners she was doing this for about 7 years until it was shut down. However I have been on beach road in Pattaya and seen ladies in their 40′s with young girls maybe 15 or so working, but police regularily check id’s on the beach as well (mind you this was 100 meters from the police station). The police arn’t really doing anything about it because it’s easy to spot someone selling underage kids, look for a lady about 40 and really fat with about 4-5 young girls around her, even if there is noone around her you can easily go up and ask her, literally that simple.
Recently there was a bust in Chiang Mai not of thais but of burmese selling their children for sex. There were many western men meeting the mostly young girls who sold flowers and offering them money in exchange for sex. Their parents caught onto this and started to make a business out of it. This went on probably for about a year until the operation was closed down with the help of the local Tourist Police. You won’t find this in Chiang Mai anymore. Also just down from the Tapae gate area in Chiang Mai there is another older lady in her 40′s really fat has about 4-5 girls work for her, i’m pretty sure all of them are under 18 well so my mates have told me.
Bangkok would have to have the most underage girls working in all of Thailand, many of the little flower girls and boys on the streets (most are burmese) are for sale, though i’ve never known anyone to go that far, but as for young young girls and boys most are inside brothels that are well hidden from the public and NGO’s. Your likely to get robbed if you ask a TUK TUK driver and typically these places are only for Thai’s. I remember when i was about 17 i was in the Nana Hotel disco and bagged this girl she had been through the ringer more than twice is for sure, anyway she said i was a nice guy and offered me to break in her 13y/o sister. For free too because she wanted her in the business. Yeah great sister hey, I declined not because i was out on a flight the next day but because that’s just too innocent for me.
