Bangkok or Pattaya for low budget holiday

Recommended Posts

I’m 27 Male solo traveler from England, I’ll be heading to Thailand for the 7th time for a 40 day holiday in July, though this year my budget is low, I’ll have around £2300 British pounds to spend on accommodation, food, drink etc .. as my budget is low I think the cheaper option is to stay in one place and chill for a month, I’m not sure where to chill, I love Bangkok but Pattaya is okay too, I want to have fun with the Thai girls but I’ll prefer a non hooker, I guess my budget is too low to be Banging prostitutes everyday. Don’t fancy Phuket, I am not a party guy but I do need nightlife, I want to meet girls, I like nature, cheap Thai food, I want to relax and chill, not sure if Bangkok is best or Pattaya .. what do you guys think ?

Looks like I can get an Airbnb for 1 month for around £300 to £350 in Pattaya or Jomtein, maybe £400 in Bangkok, it’s 1 month stay so not illegal. I’ve already booked flights so has to be 40 days, maybe I over did it ..but I just want to stay in Thailand as long as possible, as mentioned I am not going to be drinking at bars really, not eating at expensive restaurants, I just want to chill, eat cheap food and meet women, preferably non sex workers. Pattaya has the beach and cheaper rooms and stuff, Bangkok has cheap food, more stuff to do and see, lots of girls to meet from dating apps, can’t do both if I’m staying Airbnb, I feel like Bangkok will be more fun as it’s easier to meet women, Pattaya is mainly for paying for sex and partying 

which I can’t do, but it’s possible to meet non sex workers in Pattaya, I’ve done it before..but it’s rare

If you are leaning more to Bangkok now, post for some suggestions on a place to stay in the Bangkok forum for local input.

Go to krabi pattaya is built around hookers, alcohol and pissing money... same for patong in phuket so go elsewhere.... try krabi or railay beach or parts of phuket outside patong.... you will have a small chance of finding any non working girls in pattaya with an interest in dating...

Rain season is normally worse in the south so that’s why I think it’s better to stay central like Bangkok or Pattaya, also I feel comfortable in Bangkok and Pattaya, I know what to expect, I know what fun I can have, if I book a months stay in Krabi and hate it then my holiday is ruined, yes that’s the disadvantage with Pattaya, it’s mostly hookers and bars, of course I can stay there and not participate in that stuff, and I have managed to get lucky twice (free sex) in Pattaya but your right it’s rare, won’t happen often. Anything can happen in Thailand, that’s what I’ve come to know over the years.

I’m sort of leaning towards Bangkok, but Pattaya always has something attractive and addictive about it... men just seem to be drawn to it..but if I’m not drinking at bars and Banging hookers then what’s the point in staying there .. everything is about money over there.

Agreed, if working girls are not your thing, you can do better in BKK. The only difference budgeting then is accommodation. Although some BKK venues may also charge more. Keep your food bill manageable by eating local food in mall foodcourts, still authentic, more hygienic than the streets. (And you can meet local ladies at the communal tables too).

If you're not into bars Pattaya does have other attractions, but you'll pay more to reach them as well, with taxis and grab being the only practical options.

In Pattaya, 'nice' girls have a hard time dating vacationers, for obvious reasons. All in all if you're newish to the country, and not into the p4p scene, Bangkok would be my call.

Try Rattanakosin Island in Bangkok, too. There's all kinds of budget hotels and guesthouses in the Soi Rambuttri Area near Wat Chanasongkran. 

And Pattya is not far from Bangkok Ekamai Station.
