I'm going to be spending about a month in Thailand when I'm in Southeast Asia. I'm going to Koh Samui, Bangkok, and Chiang Mai...maybe a few other places. I'm really paranoid about the ladyboys. Other than the Adam's apple and big hands, are there any other ways to tell? Should I be so paranoid? I'm not talking about girls in go go bars and red light districts, only the "regular" clubs.

I always find ladyboys are pretty easy to spot, or maybe i've made a few foolish errors!! I think that they are usualy more like women than woman, the overdone walk etc gives it away. Or is this just the typical ones and some are much more convincing?

lol
you can usually tell... as mentioned above, some will have a more "affected" manner (is that the right word?), kinda camping it up...
- otherwise there are physical signs, can usually tell in the voice or face
- also if they are unusually persistent or aggressive!

have fun Wink

Well...you can't ALWAYS tell!

True story. I live in Japan, and was at a bar one night. The place was packed. I started talking to this really pretty (and well-endowed) girl. She said she was from the Phillipines, but she looked totally caucasion.
Anyway, I hadn't talked to her very long, before she asked me to kiss her. Really wierd, right!? I thought she was just playing with me, and that if I actually tried to kiss her, she'd refuse and just laugh at me. So, I said no. She acted kind of hurt, and I realized she was serious.
Not too long after, I did end up kissing her. Kissed her several times until a guy from a bar down the street pulled me aside and said, "man, you can do anything you want, but you do know that that girl used to be a guy."
I couldn't believe it, and thought he HAD to be talking about a different girl, but he just kept insisting. When I went back to her I asked, "Did you used to be a guy?"
She never gave me a straight answers, and just kept asking me, "Who told you that?", with a really serious look on her face.
I mean, if you asked a real girl the same question, she'd look at you like you were crazy, before sighing, "of course, I am you idiot!"
Anyway, that was the start and end of that relationship.

Point: Telling isn't always possible!!!

If you can't tell the difference, shouldn't it not matter ?

Spot on, if something is beautiful to you then it doesn't matter what gender the person is. Just enjoy yourself.

I'm a very open-minded person....BUT having said this....I'm to the point where I cannot even stand to be around these people.

I'm not referring to gay people, effiminate males, etc. I'm specifically talking about the ladyboys that most of the time GRAB YOU...TUG AT YOU...STAND IN YOUR WAY, (attempt to steal your wallet)etc....when you simply just want to walk down the street. It's ridiculous.

The only time I've ever had a violent episode was in Nha Trang last year when several lady boys hassled me for over a minute and I finally just lost it, shoved them, knocked over their motorbike, etc. They finally got the hint, called me crazy and ran away.

Ladyboys on the prowl can fall off the face of the earth...for all I care.

They can be a bit scary at times. I was set on by one once who put his/her hand straight into my pocket to grab my cash. I never carry a wallet, always have my cash hidden, so she/he got angry and tried to knee me in the balls.

i used to work out at a gym in patong beach.... across the street on the second floor flats lived a few ladyboys. they liked to parade around topless and show off their newly installed *beep* and on occasion flashed us over in the gym... Shocked

had a few ladyboys grab my crotch while walking down sukhumvit rd in bkk...

ladyboys often seem to be pretty tall relative to most other thais.

I think Im 100% straight, but I have to admit that more than a few ladyboys in Thailand are absolute stunners. Any man saying he doesnt look twice at some of the better looking ladyboys is either gay or lying.

A lot of southeast Asian men have small figures and the gay ones make great ladyboys, and you just cant tell. After a boob job and the adams apple reduction, they look as good as the real thing.

But there is one way to tell a ladyboy. Next time you walk behind a woman, check her arms. Womens arms bend out slightly at the elbow to follow the contours of their wider hips. Men, hold out one arm in front of you. It will be dead straight. Womens bend at the elbow.

Back to ladyboys the only problem with them is pickpocketting. They make out theyre grabbing your cobblers whilst grabbing your other crown jewels. Best ogle them at a distance.
