These days you hear more expats in Thailand than ever complaining about all different sorts of things: The uneasy visa situation for long time residents. Unreasonable prices for condos given the generally poor building standards. Increasing number of both road accidents and criminal rates. And so on and so forth.

How Pattaya Became a Sex Tourism Hub

Is Pattaya famous for anything other than hookers and ladyboys? Whether you come to Pattaya for sex tourism, to enjoy a Pattaya beach and other things to do in Pattaya or simply to take a break from Bangkok , Pattaya hotels are some of the best hotels in Thailand. From magnificent resorts like Grand Party Pool Villa Pattaya , to boutique hotels such as Jean Boutique , to apartments— View Talay 24 is a good one—that make you feel right at home, Pattaya is truly a hub for amazing hotels, whether you focus on Pattaya attractions for adults or less shady Pattaya places to visit. Pattaya is home to plenty of attractions, both within and just outside its city limits, which offer entertainment , relaxation and recreation for families, retirees and any traveler for whom snagging a Thai lover is low on the list of priorities. Scenic Koh Lan island , for example, boasts electric-blue waters, massive coral reefs and colorful town center.

WHY are there so many "ladyboys" in Thailand, and why are they such a huge part of the sex industry? Also, what's up with the ping-pong-ball act? A comparable percentage in the U. Even outside the sex industry, transgender women in Thailand may be more socially integrated than their peers elsewhere in the world—in one study of trans women there, the subjects were found on average to be better educated and more affluent than the country as a whole.
