Pattaya Bar Fines
Pattaya Nightlife | Pattaya bars
Many visitors to Pattaya are not familiar with Pattaya bar fines. In fact, some are quite surprised when they first hear the term. Basically, Pattaya bar fines are the "fines" you pay the bar for taking one of their workers home (escorts).
In Pattaya prostitution is legal as long as the person is over 18 years old. All residents of Thailand and Pattaya must have proper identification indicating they are 18 years old or older. It is important that you know that the woman (or man) that you are paying Pattaya bar fines for is of legal age.
The bars generally have only legal workers so if they are demanding a bar fine you may assume they are of legal age but you should always make sure. Many of the hotels and resorts in Pattaya are aware of the prostitution industry and will request you pay a fee for your "guest" or to have your escort leave their official ID with the hotel until they leave.
Pattaya bar fines are charged by many of the bars, especially the Go-Go or A-Go-Go bars, but not all of them. Make sure you are aware of what they are and what you are paying for before you find yourself in an uncomfortable position.
Generally speaking the girls working at the bars and clubs in Pattaya are very forward. Enjoy your time in Pattaya and if you are looking to take home a worker for the evening expect to pay Pattaya bar fines.
