Western men are becoming increasingly obsessed with Thai ladies many of them make the long distance travel to Thailand just to hook up. However, it is frustrating for many of them to find out that the girl they have fallen in love with is a Thai Ladyboy or what is referred to as katoey in Thailand – in other words, they were not born as females.
Thai Ladyboy is becoming increasingly popular because women earn more than men in Thailand. Many of the men have limited working option and to beat this obvious handicap, they undergo surgical operations to become transgender. Unlike most foreign men would discriminate, Thais do not discriminate against Thai Ladyboy and they can be found working in public places.
They are very hard to spot in the crowd if you are visiting Thailand for the first time. You would be fooled with ease if you base your judgment on facial appearance alone because they are just as pretty – if not more pretty – as the females. For a westerner planning to visit Thailand either to fall in love or for a vacation, there are ways you can tell the difference between Thai ladies and Thai Ladyboys.
Tips to differentiate between a lady and a ladyboy
* Thai Ladyboy is usually very tall beyond what can be perceived as the average for females. Although a handful of women in Thailand are taller than 180cm, the majority of Thai Ladyboys go well beyond this height.
* Females are females and they do not need to act it for you to know. However, a Thai Ladyboy is usually too self-cautious. You will notice them flicking at their hair or constantly trying to fake a catwalk. This is because they still have the male genes which they are working hard to suppress.
* A Thai Ladyboy is usually too loud in a manner that is high-pitched especially when angry. You could try to be naughty to see how your lady reacts to it if you are not sure whether you are dealing with a Thai Ladyboy.
* It is almost a rule for Thai ladies to wear a bra but same cannot be said about Thai Ladyboys. Their figures are usually exaggerated – often too big and provocative – and they tend to ditch putting on bra a lot. This can be a pointer to identifying them.
* Thai Ladyboy will also tend to dress more flamboyantly than an average female. This is often a way of boosting their self-confidence.
* One of the easiest ways you can identify a Thai Ladyboy is to look at her shoulder. Men usually have larger shoulders and feet than women and inasmuch as gender reassignment surgery takes care of the facial appearance, little or nothing is usually done to get rid of the broad shoulders and big feet.
* This may be hard to pull off but if you can get a hold of her ID card, you will certainly be able to tell if she is a Thai Ladyboy or not because ID card will always bear the birth gender irrespective of how much you have transformed.
If you are traveling to Thailand to hook up with a Ladyboy
Inasmuch as some men consider a ladyboy a rip-off, there are western men who actually travel to Thailand to hook up with a Thai Ladyboy. Their admirable heights and charming features are some of the reasons why some western men cannot keep their eyes off them.
A good number of the Thai Ladyboy you will meet will fall into one of two categories –pre-op and post-op. The pre-ops are those who have undergone some facial modification to make them look like females but are yet to get gender reassignment while the post-ops are those who have been totally transformed to females. It may be hard to tell one from the other from merely looking at them and you may need to ask to be sure – but make sure you ask politely.
The places you will find a Thai Ladyboy
If your main aim of traveling to Thailand is to date a Thai Ladyboy, then you need to know where they are concentrated to make your search easier. Pattaya and Phuket, in particular, appear to have the highest concentration of Thai Ladyboys. Some have even claimed that they are the most beautiful in the world. There are lots of places you will most certainly find a Thai Ladyboy and below is a list of the places they visit.
* There are a handful of Thai Ladyboy bars where you can be certain that the evening will not end without you finding a Thai Ladyboy to hook up with. Most of such bars are concentrated in Bangkok's red light district – and there are three of such red light districts.
* The easiest way to find a Thai Ladyboy in recent times is through the use of thai dating websites. Once you have found one, you can arrange your date. Some of the dating websites that are now available will allow you to search for ladies according to category and Thai Ladyboy would definitely be in the option.

Why western men prefer Thai Ladyboy to females
Obviously, Thai Ladyboy understands what men want more than females because they have been men before – a female would only guess. Also, they rarely get angry like females which make them easier to handle.
Asian females tend to be restricted in the way they act in public by their cultures. A Thai Ladyboy, on the other hand, is not afraid to flaunt his body in a public in a way that is both attractive and romantic. Most men will tell you that in addition to being pretty, they want ladies that are confident in public whom they can flaunt around for their friends and that is where Thai Ladyboy have the advantage of the females.
