Why Single Foreigners Should Always Visit Bangkok

South-East Asia is a lure for many foreigners, looking for their first Asian holiday experience.

But not all Asian countries and cities are the same.

Why should single foreigners make Bangkok their initial destination?

  1. You will meet a wide diverse range of Thai women.
  2. You are safer than in other regions of Thailand.
  3. You will experience a better range of 'foreigner-friendly' Thai food.
  4. Bangkok gives you world-class medical facilities.
  5. You can use Bangkok as your hub to further travel destinations.

Since we're an online dating website, this post will focus on the reasons for single men visiting Thailand to get 'amongst it' in Bangkok.



Lots of Different Thai Girls in Bangkok

Let's start with Thai girls, and we'll then explain how other areas relate to your dating and enjoyment.

So why would a foreign dating man come to Bangkok first; before another city, in Thailand?

The benefit of dating a Thai girl in Bangkok is the variety:-

  • Traditional Thai Women
  • Liberated Thai Women
  • Bar Girls
  • Hi-So (High Society) Thai Girls
  • Fair skin tones of Thai women from the North
  • Dark skin and sharp features of Southern Thailand
  • High cheekbones, thick-lipped, dark skin Thai girls from Isaan/Northern Thailand
You can see the unlimited variety of Thai girls in Bangkok.

Each Thai girl in Bangkok has her style, food choices, peculiarities and cultural nuances.

Thailand's capital city is a melting pot of people from all over the country; they come here mainly to find employment.

Test and Measure your personal preferences:-

  • Dating is a numbers game you want to win
    • You are the person wanting a specific Thai woman who meets your requirements
  • Play the 'field of variety' with women in Thailand
    • Even if you prefer light-skinned girls, meet a few Northern Thailand women too
    • 'Life is like a box of chocolates'

What you need to remember is Thai women are all looking for a better life; and a good guy for their life.

You must play the field; Bangkok is the ideal hunting-ground for Thai women; of every variation, imaginable.



Bangkok is a 'Karen-free' Zone

The press is abuzz with the term 'Karen'; a loud, obnoxious, rude woman. A 'Karen' is usually a fat, unattractive woman.

Question: Do you know why more than 150,000 ex-pats choose to live permanently in Thailand?

Answer: Thailand is a 'Karen free' zone! Bangkok has the largest population of available Thai women, and none of them is a 'Karen' !!!

Pro Tip: If a Thai girl displays any hint of raising her voice to you, drop her immediately. She won't be worth the effort, in the long run. I've dumped a few women who did this - and hooked up with a new girl the next day (online dating is exceptional for this).



There are no Karens in Thailand - she is beautiful.

First Time Experiences Count

Venturing to a foreign country can be daunting; especially when the native language and culture is vastly different to your own.

Bangkok eases all your first-timer pain in areas you'll appreciate.

These include:-

  • Shopping centres
  • Fast food outlets
  • Modern people-mover transportation
  • Medical facilities
  • Cheap luxurious accommodation

You're coming to Thailand to find a Thai travel buddy, new friend or true love. You don't need confusion to enter in your early travel.

Bangkok comes to your rescue.

At least stay a few days and enjoy more than fifty per cent Western facilities. Bangkokians are familiar with foreigners/ex-pats and their likes and dislikes. You'll feel at home more than in the back-waters of Udon Thani.

Bangkok has less immediate culture shock; you can comfortably ease into life, in Thailand's capital city. Thai girls who live in Bangkok are the ideal travel companions as they understand your first-time jitters; country girls don't have the same sensitivity.



Bangkok Feels Safer

Thailand remains a safe country to stay and travel through.

We've heard feedback from some members here that isn't their initial feeling when they've first landed in Pattaya or Phuket, for example.

Both those major Thai cities are safe but do have a level of uncertainty, for foreigners. Foreigners travelling in both those cities are high-level targets for scalpers.

Bangkok, on the other hand, retains high regards for ex-pats and foreigners. Thai people understand your needs and requirements; they'll embrace their usual friendly demeanour and sort you out.



Variety of Safe Local Foods

Do you remember that saying - "You never know what you're gonna get?".

Travel in other countries involves eating a wide variety of different foods; some can be unpalatable.

You will quickly discover the food choices in Bangkok are tourist-friendly, diverse and down-right delicious; as this city is a central hub for tourists.

Experiment in Bangkok with tasty Thai food.

You can easily experiment and taste local Thai food and fall back to the available Western food; everything is available in Bangkok.

You don't need to be afraid of coming down with a dose of Bali-belly here.

Thai girls you meet in Bangkok can hand-hold you through the enormous array of Thai foods too. Give them instructions on what foods you're willing to try as well as the spicy hotness level you want. They will take care of you, guaranteed.

Venture To The Local Bangkok Haunts

A better travel experience for you is to venture outside the safe zone of Western food and visit restaurants where the locals eat.

Thai people only eat where the food is consistently fresh and tasty; they are always posting reviews of their culinary adventures for other's benefit.

You can start with established dining areas in shopping malls.

We recommend 'getting out there' to more Thai-only places.



Do visit the Ratchada Train Market in Bangkok.

Here are a few you can quickly get to via the MRT rail systems:-

  • Hop on the MRT train and get yourself to the Thailand Cultural Centre MRT station. You'll find the 'Zabb One 2' eatery within a minute walking distance.
    • Zabb One 2 has an extensive array of Thai dishes that are simply mouth-watering.
    • The majority of the menu has English. You're better to point to the dishes you need when the waiter/waitress comes.
    • I'd recommend you order foreign-friendly grill chicken and load up on the Thai dishes you find appealing.
  • Directly next door to Zabb One 2 (on the MRT station side) is an overlooked place that serves a sensational Chicken Soup. Both Zabb One 2 and this Chicken Soup place are very popular with the local Thai people; so you know the food is first class.
  • Since you now know this MRT station, take a short walk up to The Esplanade shopping mall.
    • Behind this mall, you'll find the Train Night Market.
    • This market is popular with locals and visiting tourist.
    • You'll find foreign and Thai food as you stroll around.
    • Take a Thai girl with you as your guide; she'll love the experience.

You'll quickly realise that markets are everywhere throughout Bangkok. These places make ideal spots to take a Thai girlfriend or chill out yourself.

Open Google Maps and type 'markets' to get a list of other markets you can easily find in Bangkok.



Accessible Transport & Travel Is Available in Bangkok

Bangkok also has a first-class public transport system covering the majority of the city.

And it's built for the masses; so it's cheap to use and is clean beyond belief.

Using public transport is a great way to know Thai culture and the local Thai people. The majority of significant tourist attractions are near MRT and BTS stations; you don't need to travel far from them to see the city's attractions.

You will have heard of Bangkok's traffic problems, and that's a true story.

You'll rarely need to worry with such a world-class public system.

Bangkok public transport systems are an easy opportunity to pass your business card to travelling girls too; pass them, wink and exit the train.



Bangkok Is An Ideal Jumping-Off Point

Bangkok is the ideal 'home base' for a travelling foreigner and especially a single man.

The accommodation is mid-level pricing and ridiculously cheap compared to your home country.

The condo pricing extends your short and long-term holiday jumps as those destinations which will be top-tier, for long time-frames.

It makes logical sense to use Bangkok as your travel hub.

Live the easy, affordable life in BKK; and splurge more on more exotic Thailand destinations.



Hook-up with a Thai girl as your Bangkok guide.

Bangkok Is Ideal For Experimenting

It is prudent to start a short or long term holiday in an area where you can make sense of your surroundings.

Many destinations in Thailand will be outside main cities and towns; English speaking levels are significantly lower here.

  1. You will find it more comfortable in Bangkok to understand the nuances of Thai-English and the accent used.
    • The same knowledge applies to food and labelling.
  2. Visit Bangkok-based Buddhist temples.
  3. Thailand has best-of-breed medical facilities. Even if you aren't travelling as a medical tourist, I'm sure there are some minor medical conditions you've been dying to get fixed.
    • Bangkok is the best Thai city for medical institutions.
    • You should browse what's available at Praram 9 Hospital, Bumrungrad International Hospital or the Bangkok Hospital.
    • As an example: I recently visited the Praram 9 Hospital for a minor skin ailment which I've meant to get fixed for years.
      • The waiting time for a specialist was a mere 5 minutes which included the routine blood pressure checks and measurements of height and weight.
      • The specialist physician took her time to understand the problem and was happy to answer all my questions.
      • She took a skin sample, sent it for testing and analysis; which took an hour.
      • 3050 baht (USD$ 97) was the total cost; including all medical consultation fees and medicine.
      • There's no need to return as the specialist correctly diagnosed the problem.
    • If you've got any minor medical conditions, get them taken care of while you're in Bangkok.


Closing

Whether it's Thai women, leisure activities, medical, food variety or a travel hub, Bangkok has it all and then some.

Add the city as your first Thailand destination and start your Asian journey in the 'Venice of Asia.
