Meeting Thai ladyboys in Udon Thani city centre isn’t as easy as it might seem. The city is not awash with Thailand’s third gender but you do see them in some city centre bars and nightlife venues. My own interest toward Thai ladyboys has only ever been out of arm’s length curiosity and a thirst for knowledge, but nonetheless, ladyboys are the main reason many westerners travel to Thailand.
Where to Meet Thai Ladyboys in Udon Thani City Centre
Udon Thani’s two bar complexes Nutty Park and Day & Night do have some ladyboys but all the bars at both venues have bar girls holding the reins. The occasional ladyboy is seen at both locales. The Beach Bar in Soi Sampanthamit is a far better place to look.
The Beach Bar employs ladyboys alongside their bar girls and the mix makes the bar a fun and popular nightlife spot. Weekends being the busier time. One of the Beach Bar ladyboys I spoke to (pictured above and right) admitted business was slow and that most of the bar’s ladyboys entertained customers on average about once a month. That can be read as good news if you are visiting Udon Thani and want to meet a Thai ladyboy. The Beach Bar is probably the best bar to lock on to a ladyboy.
Sisters Bar and Mr Tong’s, two popular Udon Thani nightlife late night music bars on Prajaksilapakom Road are two other bars ladyboys do frequent – freelancers are good possibilities at both, though no guarantee.
Udon Thani’s two city centre night markets, Centre Point and UD Town, are good venues to lay eyes on ladyboys. UD Town especially so. UD Town’s Beer Park, food court, designer shops and market stalls are good places to lookout for Thailand’s third sex.
Central Plaza Shopping Mall beauty and perfume counters are other places where ladyboys are sometimes seen. Hairdressers are another ladyboy hotspot.
Udon Thani nightlife is not overrun with ladyboys, it’s a bar girl dominated scene, but there are ladyboys eager to meet westerners in Udon Thani and enjoy an active relationship. Ladyboys in Udon Thani will probably ask around 2,000 THB for one night’s company, a bar fine may need to be paid as well. Sweet-talk and stone-wall eyes should get you the ladyboy’s fee reduced by half.
