This shows links to all known Gogo Bar sites and only a listing for those who do not have a website. Some bars may even have two web sites!
There are a few links included, but they rely on the customers or bars giving us the URLs. A small problem is caused that when a bar starts, they publicise it, but when it closes, no-one can be bothered to get it deleted. Also ISPs close websites as people change e-mail addresses and usually ISPs at the same time, so open bars then lose their web space.
Some are very business orientated, while others are tourist/expat views about Pattaya. We will show other links below, when we come come across them. Note that they are the opinions of those people and do not reflex the views of The Pattaya Gogo Guide publishers.
A2ZPATTAYA.COM is exactly what it says. It lists everything you could ever want and some things you never thought about. Months in the planning, they did in depth research to give you the best information base around Pattaya and the surrounding area. You can trawl the information for FREE, or subscribe and get your own webpage and email service. If you are an Expat who wants to find a plumber or a tourist who wants a taxi from the airport, this is the place to try. They even list more hotel rooms than the Tourist Authority of Thailand has counted.
PATTAYACITY.COM. The original and possibly the best web site on Pattaya. Commercially run and covers almost everything from shops / hotels to a "building by building" street map of the main tourist areas of Pattaya
PATTAYA-AT-NIGHT.COM. A good general nightlife web site. It has almost daily updates and is a very good source of information. The running newscast is very informative. Give it a try - you will not be disappointed.
MEN PARADISE PATTAYA. Well designed, this is a small and interesting site is mostly in German, but enough content for English speaking people to enjoy.
THE FREELANCER BAR. An interesting site hosted by The Freelancer Bar on Walking Street, South Pattaya.

We showed this site as we thought it was genuine, but the the site http://www.pattayascam.com says otherwise. Judge for yourself! Their office in pattaya is closed and the signs all taken down at Tip Top building on Third Road. [updated 20-11-2004]
Pattaya Plaza. The website is the "New kid on the Block" but is already the most comprehensive site about Pattaya. It is also easy to find your way round. Have a look round, it is well worth the time, as you will find so much to interest you, whatever you are looking for. Their nightlife section is covered under the URL http://www.pattaya-nitelife.com/. Check it out

STICKMAN's GUIDE TO BANGKOK. This is the best text only site with everything you want to know about Bangkok nightscene. Written by an expat who lives there, it describes every entertainment area in Bangkok and things to watch out for. It may not look jazzy, but makes up for that with content. I suggest you read off-line as some headings are the equivalent of 100+ pages of A4.
This was on-line before unpublished, but now available in print at DCO. It is one of Stephen Leather's books, called "Private Dancer". A very good book, 377 pages long. It is about a farang that comes to work in Bangkok, falls for a Gogo girl working in Nana Plaza and what happens. It is seen through the eyes of each person involved, as the situation unfolds. It is a gripping story, and to the expat or regular visitor, there is truth in every paragraph! To the first time tourist, it may seem very callous and cold hearted, but there is a lot of truth. From now on, you will never be sure that the Thai man hanging round in the background is not her boyfriend, or why the same motorcycle taxi driver collects her EVERY night. An excellent read.
Trink, the most famous farang in Thailand has reappeared. His column was "Terminated" by the Bangkok Post as "Not for family reading", so now he has his own website http://www.idontgiveahoot.net. The subscription is only 480 baht a year it is half the price of 52 copies of the Bangkok Post (1,040 Baht) (or 2 gallons of Petrol in the UK) which you used to buy To read Stickman's interview with him, read Part 1 and Part 2
For books about Thailand, like "Pattaya, Patpong on Steroids" or something to help you learn Thai, browse through the DCO website and get the books posted right to your door.
THAILANDFREUNDE.DE A very good GERMAN language site. Many of our visitors are from Germany, so I hope they like this site. It looks good to me (an Englander!). Some very good German-Thai links.
SUTINEE Some wonderful photos of Sutinee in the well developed web site. Studio photos of here and others of her clubbing with her friends and visiting England. Even got her own message board.
SAN-UK.COM. A general information web site, with references to Pattaya. Take a look and see for yourself.
An American site from a group called "Liberated Christians" which is full of information, views and anecdotes about Thailand and Philippines. Maybe preaching or praising - I am not sure myself... When I asked them, they replied "Supporting sex work as a badly needed legitimate profession promoting more intimacy, more sensual sexuality and decriminalization"
This site has a weekly newsletter telling you what Baronbonk got up to on his trips down Pattaya way with others items based around Bangkok. Sometimes they have a Gogo bar competition - check out the link. Also recommended hotels, etc. Give it a try.

Don't listen to bar talk about Visas and what is required. Go straight to the people who make the rules - The Royal Thai Police Immigration Bureau. The Pattaya Immigration office is on Soi 8 behind the Anchor Bar. This is the place to go to get your visa extended. Friendly and efficient service.
Tourist Police website. If you have any problems, these are the people to contact. All officers speak English and are there to help you. If you have been scammed or have other problems, contact them on 1155 from any phone. They are located on Second Road, opposite Soi 6 / Yodsak.
However, if you want to report a normal theft, like a snatched bag or theft from your hotel, go to the Pattaya Police Station on Beach Road by Soi 7 to make your report. A word of warning - only make genuine claims as they DO check it out in detail, unlike back at home. There was a recent story in the Pattaya Mail about a man jailed for making a false report so he could claim off insurance at home.
