"Beware of ladies with large Adam's apples!" Thailand Tourist Trap Tip by Jschukal

Thailand Tourist Traps: 173 reviews and 73 photos


All over Thailand, including Bangkok and the islands, the "lady-boys" run wild. As Thai men have somewhat soft features and a small thin frame, many decide to bend their gender and roam the streets as a female. Please, please don't get pulled away with one of them. I don't care how drunk you are...real women are not that aggressive. Try to be courtious and move along. As a friend of mine found out, they can be quite crazy and prone to fight if you mess with them too much. The manicurist here is an authentic ladyboy.

Unique Suggestions: Try to either ignore the lady boys or at least be cordial and say no thanks as you move along. You both will be better off for it.

Fun Alternatives: There is no alternative, they are everywhere!
