Ruthless Money Hungry Thai Women

Dear Editor: I just returned from a 3 week vacation in Thailand and Pattaya and after reading your editorial could not help but reply to it.

I have been to other Asian countries but never have I seen girls as ruthless and money hungry as they are in Thailand. They make bargirls in the Philippines look like little angels.  

It seems they have but one goal (to extract as much money as they can from a foreigner) and hide no intentions about what they want. It would seem to me that foreign men would eventually get the word out about these women and stop patronizing the so called tourist bar areas of Thailand and go to other countries. The women aren’t even that pretty in my opinion. 

I don’t know why men from other countries think that Pattaya is so great when they get ripped off so much. I was never ripped off and I did take a couple women out but I soon realized how it is here so it was strictly business for me so I could walk away. 

I have also noticed something else since I have been reading your newspaper on the internet. Everyday I read about some farang falling to his death from a building or a condo. It seems like an everyday occurrence and it always seems to be an accident. But the one common factor is that a women is usually was in the room or with the man when this happens. Are these women pushing men off buildings because they are angry the man does not give them money? This sure seems strange to me but the incidents are always reported as accidents.

As for me I am never coming back to Thailand for vacation I think I have already seen enough but good luck to any men who think they can find the love of their life here. It is strictly about the money here. And with the financial situation of the world now and tourism falling off these women are going to become more ruthless than ever.

In reply to Paul D. 

There’s nothing that can be written in a pertinent response that has not already been written or said thousands of times before. Well seasoned commentators discuss the issues raised by Paul D. time and time again.

The fact remains that men who seek the “love of their life” in a Thai bar are on to a loser. Thai bar girls are there to make money and men pay them for the services they offer. They are selling themselves and they are prostitutes, and it’s maybe unfortunate that this term is not used more often. If it was, it might bring home the message easier to the guys that fall by the wayside exactly what they are dealing with. For those that decide to extend their business transaction into a relationship “she used to work in a bar” sounds much better than “she used to be a prostitute”.

Times are hard and you can’t blame Thai girls working in the bars for trying to earn as much as they can, which is not to excuse the more unscrupulous behaviour the likes of which we report in the PDN. Whether they will be become more “ruthless” in the worsening economic climate remains to be seen. It could well be that they become more exploited themselves by their customers’ decreasing spending power.

As for the cases of foreigners falling from condos we can only go by the official reports we receive. Whereas some of these deaths may seem suspicious we feel it is not our role to comment on probable cause unless backed by the evidence available to us at the time.
