Bargain Like Mad


Recommended Posts

Sorry its a bit late now, but the hotel & travel sale at the Queen Sirikit Convention Centre in Bangkok for the past few days was excellent, and featured loads of Pattaya hotels, that had some great offers.


Goes to show that you are in a really strong position at the moment to bargain for the best deal. Use the earlier great advice & don't show up with all your bags and try to negotiate as they know you are stuck, but either call ahead, or personally check out the hotels you want & make sure that you ask for the very best deal, with any possible extras. Maybe try booking a hotel a grade higher than you normally would as you will likely get it for the same price as a lower graded hotel a year ago. Or with extras, maybe ask for Internet access, breakfast etc.... they want your business!!

Anyone who lives within their means suffers from a lack of imagination

Being myself employed in the hotel industry I suggest:


- Walk-in and bargain

Makes sense for guest houses or some smaller family run hotels. They might need your business and are flexible therefore.

Most bigger hotels have implemented SOP’s (standard operation policies), so their front office is not authorized to offer any complimentary services or discounts exceeding this policy.


- Bigger hotels with 4 – 5 * rating

For reasons stated above I recommend to do some research and book though an agent.

Walk-in is usually the most expensive option for these places.

Flexibility is the key, the problem with a lot of Thai run hotels/guest houses is they try to tell you they only have more expensive room available and don't tell you all the extras, been there and done all that.


I prefer room reservations via email as any questions can be answered by email so you the customer knows where you stand, but do often have guests walk in and I always offer them a deal depending on length of stay etc.. If we have anything available.

    • For those that don't know, I did Friday meetings before many years ago,  I feel like we are missing a regular meeting for members,  I am aware guys meet at PA affiliated bars. But I want to start meeting people again, I'm inviting the guys following my YouTube also.

      The meetings is a chance to get to meet each other,  I plan to be at every meeting, I also have Dean from Dive bar that has offered to help out with a crawl after.
      The meetings will be  Monday  6 pm - 8 pm each week.  (The improvised bar crawl will commence at 8 p.m.  Dean will make his own plans for that.)

      Due to low numbers of people in town, I will start the meetings in our bars to help our girls and managers, please check back often incase things are changed.  I will be sharing the love around town later, but Soi 6 is first on my list (including bars that are friendly competition)   
      If bar owners want us to have a meeting at their bar,  they need to have a minimum of 10 girls.  I'm not dragging people to empty bars for favours.
      Please help us invite other members, it takes a while to get momentum.
      Monday 6 pm - 8pm  (then bar crawl after)
      21st March - Playpen Soi 6
      28th March - Night wish bar Soi 6
