Two Girls Working at Smile Bar

Chiang Rai is nothing like Bangkok and certainly nothing like Pattaya.

In fact when it comes to nightlife you will not find anything similar to Nana Plaza or Soi Cowboy. What beer bars you will find are similar to the older bars on Sukhumvit 22 in Bangkok.

These bars are mainly in Jetyod Road in the town centre. But don't expect them to be heaving with customers and girls. They are generally quiet but some get more busy late in the evening. A couple of old bars that have been there decades are open in the afternoon. The best known early opening  bar is Cat Bar which is definitely not P4P. Most other bars open after 5 or 6pm.

As for available girls the quality varies. All the girls I have seen were over 30 years old, and some look it.

The best in my view are Smile Bar, 69 Bar, Lam Yai Bar, Nena Bar and Chicken Bar. The amount of P4P which is available in these bars is directly proportional to the number of girls who turn up for work.  Another popular bar is Peace Bar but it is not my type of bar. A few of the bars have pool tables if you like to shoot...

If you are interested, there is also a bar in one of the side roads (sois) off Jetyod Road, called 'Boys Bar' - I have no idea what goes on inside it as I have never been.

There is also Hangover Bar which is a popular place for ex - pats. It is about 70 m from the main part of Jetyod Road where it turns at a 90 degree angle, at the end of the road furthest away from the Clock Tower. The 90 degree turn is where the temple is.

As with most bar area in towns accross Thailand there are girls walking around selling everything from roses to peanuts. Chiang Rai is not an exception. But there are very few of them, all are pleasant and not pushy.

Here is a map of Jetyod Road showing the locations of the bars.

There are 3 massage shops in Jetyod Road, and a lot in what is known as 'Soi Massage' that runs off it. There are also quite a few in the main road through the town that runs parallel with Jetyod Road at the other end of 'Soi Massage' (P

Many of the massage shops in 'Soi Massage' have staff who offer extra services for a fee.
