It doesn't matter - this is the Philippines! People just do whatever they want here and nobody cares. I think the country has started a new slogan geared to tourists saying "It's more fun in the Philippines".

Yes, "sex tourist" will be stamped into your passport.


I hate it when that happens. Laughing

Seriously though it really bothers some people to be thought of in that light.

The whole thing of people careing what others think has always baffled me, it seems to assume that the other people are actually capable of thinking. Especially over 40, who cares.

there is nothing wrong with pattaya and the hookers don't bother people.LOL i'd much rather spend time in pattaya than bangkok. my wife and i have spent many a week there. you can see many tourists with their families in pattaya nowadays. it's true the beach sucks, but after spending long periods of time on an island it's nice to head somewhere that has movie theatres, tons of restaurants with foreign foods(there are some good ones, you just have know where to find them.), shopping malls and used bookstores that carry english books. i'm sure some people will say they get enough of that in korea and don't head to thailand for these things but remember, not everyone lives in seoul or a big city in korea. and there is probably just as much prostitution per capita everywhere else in thailand, it's just not visible, because in pattaya it's being marketed toward the foreign tourist.

ps. chiangmai is great too, but not so convenient unless you are already up north.


Or you could go to place that has all those things and isn't a sex driven hell hole. All the families I saw there were Russian or Korean. In the case of Koreans, they're definitely there due to a dependence on group travel and a lack of knowledge about Thailand in general. The only thing that Pattaya might have on some of the other beach destinations near BKK is its shopping mall, and if you're coming from Korea it's not as if that's ome ind of novelty anyway.

Will I be deemed as a sex tourist?

My advice for you: Don't care so much what people think about you.
