What you can do with $200 dollars a day in Pattaya

This article is Part 3 in a 5 part Pattaya series that covers the following topics

  1. Planning your trip to Pattaya
  2. What to do with 1 week in Pattaya
  3. What you can do with $200 hundred dollars a day in Pattaya
  4. What you can do with $30 dollars a day in Pattaya
  5. Cheap hotels in Pattaya with free WiFi

I originally titled this post "what you can do with $100 dollars a day" but changed it to 200 just to be more exciting and to account for accommodation. Two hundred dollars a day in Pattaya will go a long way, and if your spending anymore than that your going crazy. $200 a day US is about 6000 baht, including accommodation is a lot of money to be going out in Pattaya.

With $200 dollars or rather 6000 baht in Thai money is the ultimate Pattaya experience and for one week in Pattaya if you spend $1000 - $1400 dollars your sure to come home with some lifelong memories. Now i'm sure there are people out there

Hotel In Pattaya 1000 baht

To start with, you've got a big budget of 6000 baht, you could stay in a hovel of a room for 500 baht a night but let's upgrade a bit, it's your week long vacation in Pattaya and you deserve a little bit of luxury. You can't upgrade too much though because the expensive hotels charge you money to bring a girl back to your room. You want to look for a decent bachelor hotel room in Pattaya. Luckily I know just the place, the siam sawasdee hotel is priced just right at about 900 baht per night which still leaves you with lots of spending money. Best part about the hotel is they don't charge to take girls back to the hotel.

Go Go clubs Pattaya 3000 baht

So forget beach road and the beer bars, you have some dosh in your pocket, you want to get the goods. And the only way to get the top quality girls in Pattaya is to check out the go go clubs. You still have over 5000 baht in your pocket and for 2000 baht you can get the youngest hottest girl in the go-go bar for an hour or two. Take your time and check out a few clubs though, you want to find the best looking girl you can for under 2500 baht. For this money you will get some really really good looking Thai girl.

Nightclubs in Pattaya 1000 baht

Pattaya Girls
Now you could spend way more than 1000 baht at nightclubs in Pattaya however I'm getting too old to hear super sonic loud music and prefer to just hunt for girls. But a trip to the nightclubs in Pattaya are a good way to get out of the room for a bit and you never know what you'll take out of the club, many times I've been out to the clubs and never left with a Thai girl but some other girl tourist which is always good for something different. Budget yourself to this much and see if you can't get something to come home too.

Dining in Pattaya 500 baht

Again you could probably spend more money on eating in Pattaya, but if your like me, you save the bucks so you can get something extra special in your bed at night. The hotel room you book should have a free buffet breakfast, take advantage of that and eat a Thai meal for lunch. You don't want to go out on an empty stomach so spend the rest of your food budget on a good western meal that will keep you going till the wee hours. Many hotels have really good buffet dinners for around 300 baht, these are great because you stock up on all your salads and fruits that give you energy for all the young Pattaya girls!

Late night short time Take home Girl 500 baht

Before you head home by yourself with no money left, oh wait, you still have 500 baht, no problem! You can find cheap entertainment along beach road promenade that runs down from walking street all the way to your hotel. So take a stroll and see if you can get something for short time for 500, no need for overnights (beach Thai girls are into scams so best not for overnight) but for 500 you should get something OK. Remember tomorrow is another day.

In summary you could spend way more than $200 dollar a day in Pattaya, you could add a soapy massage, fine dining etc. And before you know it you could be spending $500 a day. I don't know anyone that goes there and get's that crazy though. Watching your money and budgeting well you can have an awesome time for $200 dollars a day. Your balls could get very sore but you'll have a blast!

Anyone care to tell me how much you average for spend per day in Pattaya?

    Im 28 been going pattaya for the last 8 years 2-3 times a years for a month each time. I just come back 15 th jan 2013 was there 4 week spent $10,000au not including flights. Some days spent 50 bucks others a 100 the then it might be 600 or even 20,000 baht. Don’t leave first timers with the impression pattaya or Thailand is cheap it’s an expensive place Phuket is even more expensive. If you are a complete sex tourist and that’s all you do there please state this in your post but if you enjoy doing other activities other than rooting young Thai girls 6000 tbh is not a lot of money

    • Chris January 19, 2013 at 4:23 am #

      It’s possible to spend even more than that really depends, i think for the average person on a reasonable budget $200 a day allows you to have a lot of fun.

  2. michael February 20, 2013 at 11:00 am #

    Hi Cris

    I agree 200 a day is plenty,unless you are like me and love showering the go go dancers with 20 baht notes when your drunk like i do ha ha ,last night i went out got blind drunk and blew 45,000 baht on them and staggered home alone but hearing the squeals og delight from all them pretty young girls will be a treasured memory forever for me,i had a ball and the girls really did too,

    • Chris February 20, 2013 at 4:31 pm #

      I gotta admit I do the same thing, sometimes it’s the tease that’s just so much more fun.

    • Rico September 19, 2013 at 1:14 pm #

      Sorry, but it’s idiots like you that drive the prices up, you should’ve given 10% of that to those girls, and 90% to poor children. You’d be a much better human being.

      • Chris September 24, 2013 at 4:42 am #

        If you want cheap go to cambodia bro $5 all you want.

  3. Pervez October 9, 2013 at 7:42 pm #

    I never went to a night club, I will experience this shortly while visiting Pattaya at the end of this month. Can any one tell me is there any entry fee? it is necessary to purchase drink in the club? I would be grateful for your guidance.

    I usually plan my Pattaya trip with a budget of 8000 tbh (excl.hotel) Yet somehow I never got to spend this much money in any day. 600 for the food, 1000 for shopping, 2000 for drinks for me and ladies… Leaves me around 4000 baht a day that even the best looking girl wouldn’t cost that much. So $250 is enough for a fantastic day in Pattaya.

    • Chris September 29, 2014 at 8:48 am #

      2000 drinks for you and ladies, guess that all depends on how much you drink and what you drink, personally I couldn’t even buy a bottle with mixers for less than 2000 baht at ibar one of the most popular clubs in Pattaya.

  5. Mike November 27, 2014 at 8:15 am #

    Need some advice,going to Pattaya for the 3rd time but first time on my own I want to have a good time but not sure how to budget .I like to give the girls a drink sometimes depends on if they are sexy and act friendly.Im taking more than enough with me but if I can save money and still have a great time would be nice to know

    • Chris November 28, 2014 at 11:33 am #

      Stick to cheap accommodation on second road near LK metro will save you a few bickies. Only buy a girl a drink if you’re at least 60% sure you wanna bar fine her. Food can add up a lot, so try to eat alone.

  6. Zack April 5, 2015 at 8:54 pm #

    Hi Mates…. Visiting pattaya after 6 long years…have no clue how are things right now… Can some one advise me the best way to have some super fun…. Women and Wine ….

  7. Tapu April 17, 2015 at 10:14 pm #

    Hi i want to know that,i will stay in phuket (Island also) 2 knight and bangkok 2 knights and transport will be bus. so 10000 bath is for enough on not for this trip.

  8. Jkam June 6, 2015 at 11:56 pm #

    Zack I’m in same position. I was last in Pattaya in 2007 (wow has it been that long). Looks like prices have gone up but that its other wise the same – or at least that’s my hope. Gogo, bar beer and fun times – although I read LT girls from gogo bars do runners after 1 shot I experienced that in 2007 once or twice in a 3 week period so I’m hoping it’s not universal (advice welcome from anyone who has visited recently). I must confess that i am a little aprehensive to see if an older version of me (now nearly 40 yrs and have a few more pounds than I’d like) can still hit a gogo and get a stunner to go with me for 2 – 3k bht. Also I read about the amount of really good looking girls reducing? (Economics are often cited) i am till looking forward to my visit though. I’m gonna certainly be saving enough to ensure my money can still talk when my good looks and charms aren’t hitting the mark.

  9. Dave September 2, 2015 at 6:07 am #

    My first trip I went a bit crazy and went through about 300.00 per day because I stayed at the Gogo from when it opened at 8pm til it closed at 1am and drank Heineken for maybe 130 baht and a lot of lady drinks for 165 baht. I learned pretty late to stick to draft beer because it’s much cheaper and pretty good.. GoGo girls walk around with shots but expect you to buy one for you, the girl your with and herself so it adds up. If I saw a girl with a great ass I would send her a drink.. Lady drinks are small and at the GoGo I went to they got 50 baht for every drink they got. Next time I’ll barfine early and take her over to Lucifers for human sized drinks.. Seemed the drinks get more expensive the closer you get to Walking street.. I’d pregame it at a beer bar before hitting walking street. Also went to a Russian GoGo and it was twice the price for the girl, less friendly but their pole dancing is the best but they approach you for tips like in US.

    You missed a few things I think, taxis, drink/snacks on the beach in day time, drinks in the go go bars, especially if you visit a few of them you would buy at least yourself a drink at 200-250 baht and a drink for the girl that sits with you as well.

    When I played the tourist for the 1st six months here I spend about 10k/day and other days nothing as I have to recover at times so here weo go:

    Hotel 1000 baht, lunch 300 baht, some drinks and snacks at beach 700 baht, dinner 1000 baht, cigarettes and small shopping 500 baht, drinks at bar before heading to the gogo’s say 1000 baht, drinks at several gogo’s 2000 baht, take off 500 baht, than another 2500 baht or so in a club (2 bottles whisky), have some food before heading home 500 baht.

    So yeah about 10k/day if I really want to have the full package.

    Other days perhaps less as I wouldn’t visit gogos every day but then the money would likely be spend in bars anyway so not a big difference really.

    • Chris September 14, 2015 at 6:42 pm #

      where can you get two bottles of whisky for 2500 baht?

  11. Dennis September 9, 2015 at 5:27 pm #

    Whoops forgot to mention 2000 baht tip for the lady of course so make that 12k

    • Wilbert September 23, 2015 at 7:50 pm #

      Only 2000 bath! I give a girl with a nice attitude 10.000 bath tip:)

    • peter jongerius September 23, 2015 at 11:09 pm #

      Dennis it is all about looks. I get nearly every girl for free onlf ugly losers have to tip 2000 bath a lot to get any attention!

  12. Robert September 22, 2015 at 7:53 pm #

    Pattaya is getting more and more expensive after you 13 hours in a cramped airplane seat. Working girls in Europe are nowaday a lot cheaper and mostly better looking. If you count everything. Flight, bars and hotel cost then short times are 2-3 times the price in Europe where wages are four times higher!

  13. Kobah September 22, 2015 at 11:25 pm #

    Average income in Thailand is something of 20,000 bath. That shows how expensive Pattaya is. You need 275 US dollar/10.000 bath to have a good day in Pattaya.

    A good hotel cost you $ 75. Food and beverage $ 50 and a real lovely lady, include barfine about $ 150. Add that to your ticket and see Pattaya is extremely expensive for an Asian country.

      I often spend more 😉

    If you cant feed yourself for a whole day in Pattya and get in a few beers at night and an overnight girl back to your room for 2000 Baht you are doing something wrong. I presume all these $200+ a day guys are really living it up, drinking and being in venues for a long time feeding those walking vending machines…

  20. Koos H. October 25, 2015 at 11:39 pm #

    200 dollar! If I count hotel and airfares Europe is a lot, lot cheaper! But I go again 13 hours in coach! Why the place have a very special vibration and itś now winter in Germany.. But 200, no way . Only old and fat man have to spent that.

    Just about to pack up my bags and say goodbye to Pattaya after 10 nights.

    I have been staying in an amazing 2 bedroom/3 self contained 1 bedroom villas.

    5 of us travelled. Paid $100 a night each.
    Mastered the baht buses. 10 baht per ride so teally no need to take into consideration.

    Depending on my mood and level of intoxication. My daily expenses changed a lot.

    Breakfast at a local thai place 40baht plus a large beer 70 baht. Lunch same. Dinner street vendor food 80 baht. Happy hour at gogos or street bar 50-70baht.

    Other days were
    Fine dining 2500b
    Copius amounts of drinking, tipping, gambling the workers at pool and games, soapy with 2 girls 4200b gogo bar fine 800b plus 2500b for long time or even take 2 girls home for long time from soi 6 barfine 500b and 2000b each girl.

    These days are always going to be expensive.

    When in Pattaya i say just go for it when the mood is right.

    My mates stuck to a budget but i van tell you i had a lot more fun then they did.

    Cheers guys and always remember to wear protection.

    I’m going with a mate on Saturday. 7 nights in the Hilton at Pattaya (Exec) 5 nights in The Lebua in Bangkok, (Tower Club), flights to and from Australia, business class. If you need to watch your pennies you shouldn’t be going anywhere. The object is to enjoy yourself as much as possible, right? You can’t take the dough with you when you kick the bucket. We go on an adventure annually and have visited, Vegas, The Phillipines, China, Japan and others. Hang the expense! Live life before it’s gone.

  24. Jay January 17, 2017 at 1:24 pm #
