"AIDS" Pattaya Tourist Trap Tip by Aurorae

Pattaya Tourist Traps: 15 reviews and 10 photos

Back in 1991 already, a significant percentage of entire female population was HIV positive. Revolting! Many women are into prostitution, and Pattaya is famous for sex tourism. Women go to be prostitutes for certain period, and nobody asks them where they have been when they return with money. Selling their body in exchange for being able to sustain the family is the pride there, and they are respected and treated with honor when they come back... It's their only way to survive in cruel conditions of poverty...
So, watch out! Be careful and take all precautions...

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
