The one I looked at was Nantra 39. I didn't check out Nantra De Comfort in Thonglor that you recommended Rio, so anyone reading this thread should go with your recommendation for sure. As for Nantra 39, I am sure Kdog's review was spot on when he stayed there. I notice consistency can be a real problem here with hotels in the $30-$75 price range.
I've had some shitty experiences with online stuff here in Bangkok.

Sure, I banged quite a few of them (4 out of 8 or 9 meetups I think) but also had some terrible dates. Quality on Thai Cupid is noticeably lower than what you see in Siam or in a decent club such as Route66. It seems to me that many (not all of course) are loser girls who can't find a decent Thai boyfriend or are otherwise socially awkward.

This brings me to the conclusion so far that online isn't worth it here in Bangkok unless you are either:

1. very lazy
or
2. not in BKK yet

If you do insist on doing online, make sure you get full body pics and try to feel out how good/bad their English is. These two are really fucking important.

It's no fun when an obese girl with bad acne wearing a backpack turns up to meet you at Asok station. This happened to me. I was embarrassed just to be near the girl and quickly (but gently) made some excuses up to go home.

If an online girl in Japan said that she was fat I generally disregarded it as the girl being overly self-conscious. When an online Thai girl says it, she fucking means it! I'd say that half of them on those sites are 15-20 pounds fatter than on their pictures. Some worse. The above-mentioned obese girl was from Tinder so it's not just TC.

Other bad dates have been two fairly cute girls who were incredibly shy with terrible English. One of them was so reserved she started playing on a mobile game in order to not make eye contact. Not fun. I'm used to breaking down shy girls but this shit is off the scale. Talking with them is just too painful.

I'm giving online a last chance with a couple more girls who I've vetted reasonably well but if they disappoint I'll be sticking to day/night game from now on.

Thanks for the warning. Unfortunately both of these things are true, especially #2, and when I'm there I won't have much time.

I guess I've always had a bias against online dating sites that are targeted at the locals in non-Western countries. Anyone ever use Dateinasia? Talk about a train wreck. So I can't get too excited about Thai Cupid, etc., but I just need something that will get the job done in lieu of a having a week on the ground to sort things out.

Maybe I'll give Route 66 or Scratchdog a try if nothing online turns up. I have heard that BKK clubs tend to change over time more than in most cities--is this true?
Go on Freelancer and get someone to do all the hard work for you. Set up a simple script for them to follow.

1. get pics
2. get LINE ID
3. Email you with prospects and pics

Then you take it from there lol.

Outsourcing ftw.

With Thai Friendly you need to put in a little bit of effort. It takes a few days to get used to the swing of things, how to spot if a girl has bad English, is using myspace angles on her pics etc. Once you learn the ropes you can find some hot girls to bang. Your profile needs to have a few decent pics of you as well.
I'd say about 1% of the girls on TF are on the level of RCA girls. There is some crossover there, but in general the TF girls aren't that hot. Most are just whatever. There's some 7s on there, but very very few 8s. I'd use TF/TC and target the handful of girls that really do it for you, and spend the rest of your time at RCA.

Tinder has better quality, but it's more of a pain in the ass. A good night at RCA will net you way more quality prospects than a week, maybe even a month, of online game.

A big reason guys, even guys from this forum, say BKK has low quality girls is because they only do online game, or maybe hit Spicy or Insomnia. They never step foot in RCA and they think they know what they are talking about.
I noticed this too about the perception of low quality in the Philippines. You can quite easily roll into a cheap motel, fuck a few working-class girls, and think to yourself, Who cares if I'm getting laid? This place is a dump, the girls are stoopid, and I'm going to fucking murder a taxi driver! And then you start working your way up in the pecking order of social classes and have a completely different experience.

I wonder if the same is true of Thailand. I've never really hunted in Thailand--in almost all my visits there, I've had a girlfriend with me. (I'm not above bad decisions.) I also guess that higher-end girls are harder to game in Thailand--or maybe disproportionately easy in the Philippines. From my point of view, give me a well-groomed 5 with nice clothes and a car over a 7 who works as some sort of hooker/maid/what-have-you.

I am mixed (part white and east Asian) which might subconsciously guide my preferences or opportunities, ethnicity and class-wise. Then again, it might just not matter at all.

Anyway, to find girls who are at least middle class, the common wisdom here is RCA is a good bet. Even on a weeknight? Is that about as efficient as it gets?

Why not shoot for the 8 with nice clothes and a car? Don't sell yourself short.

RCA is good on weeknights also. Maybe even better because it isn't such a cluster fuck.
Last night's girl turned up at the BTS and my heart sunk. Again, highly misleading photos hiding her bad acne. I'd got multiple photos from her which seemed legit. I'm done with doing online here. Time to get out there and do some real game.

Sorry afarang but I'm going to have to call BS on your claims that you could have "3 girls over a day" from Thai Friendly. Unless you have zero standards I just can't see this being true.
RCA/Levels + super skinny/young girls from tinder is the way to go.

That equation is actually correct.

Assuming you have plenty of matches in BKK then all you need to do is post a picture of that route 66 sign and you'll get all manner of females messaging "You're here? ME TOO!!!" blah blah.. invite them over to enjoy your company.

How easy is it to pull a SNL from RCA? I know it is not as hard as in Thong Lor but I believe RCA also has a lot of girls who don't wanna be seen going home with a foreigner.

I would appreciate it if someone with experience could break down their nightgame in Bangkok a little. Apart from Khaosan Road or hooker clubs. To me it seems that the key to get a SNL is to find the kind of girls whose preferences for farangs are accepted and known within their social circle.
It's way less frequent than in western countries, but there are Thai girls that will fuck on the first night, and if anything it's probably more common among the middle and upper middle class, who have money to spend and some freedom (especially if they've lived overseas to study or something).

My Thai friend and I would tend to target girls out in pairs rather than groups (though I've also had, and have seen my friend have, ONS from groups occasionally). It's usually quite a long night though, with venue changes, maybe food, and often drinking into the daylight before getting the bang. One situation that's worked great for me on a couple of occasions is when a girl is out with their gay friend - not sure why, but both times I've been in this situation, I've got ONS without really trying, one was one of the more attractive Thai girls I've banged too.

My game is pretty much exactly the same as my game here in that I just try to be a lot of fun, be charming, flirt, build a bit of a connection, and escalate when I can (although my escalation is more baby-steps like moving into a one to one conversation from a group conversation, getting her to come away somewhere from the group with me, sitting closely to one-another, playing with her hand somehow, etc., as opposed to having my hands all over her and kissing her within five minutes). I do speak (or at least used to speak) pretty good Thai though, which gives me an advantage, but I'm sure there's plenty of Thai girls out there that have had or would be prepared to have ONS with foreigners that don't speak Thai. We also knew the nightlife pretty well so knew lots of good places to take them that are more conducive to the goal, and that they were sure to like.

My Thai friend's game is pretty different to mine in that he just dominates the conversation (don't know anybody that speaks as much as him), makes jokes, and boasts about himself (and surprisingly it goes down quite well). He's a machine with Japanese girls though - he's married to a Japanese girl and so speaks fluent Japanese, and I've seen him take good looking J girls to their hotels within about 15 minutes on a couple of occasions. I've got no idea what he says to them, but on one occasion we were on a four table, and my one said to me something like "you're friends a bad boy" lol.

Places where a lot of expats go (Levels and so on), or even where tourists go (The Club for example), might be a better bet, but I wouldn't know as I stay away.
How easy to pull a SNL from RCA?

That depends. Are you a youngish, good looking guy who is in shape, dresses well and has solid game? Then not terribly difficult, and sometimes it just falls into your lap. Your biggest obstacle will be getting her to leave her friends. You may have to settle for the number and close the deal in a day or two, or if she's really into you have her leave with her friends and then sneak out to your condo after.

If you're not well put together with good game it's going to be a lot more difficult, just like anywhere. I had a dude tell me he didn't like RCA because it was so hard to pick up girls. I didn't have the heart to tell him it's because he was dressed like shit and had no game.

A lot of Thai girls at RCA don't want to be seen going home with ANYBODY, not just foreigners. But a lot don't give a shit either way.

The best thing about RCA though is that there's just a shitload of young, thin girls dressed well. There are approachable girls everywhere. A good night at RCA can yield you several quality leads and maybe a SNL.
This has probably been explored before, but: does suiting up make sense for RCA? I get the sense that it may be incongruent.

Nah, just dress smart casual. Suits are way too much, whenever I see someone wearing one I usually think they are a tard

Although I think that about everyone I don't know lol.

I just read your Levels Review after Kangaroo mentioned Levels above. Is it still the same as in your review? Expensive prices and packed with hookers? I have a few girls on Facebook who are there many times and to me it seems like Levels is a decent venue.

@Kangaroo: From Afarang's review it seems like RCA and Levels are two completely different venues. What makes you go to Levels?
Anything on Soi 11 is full of hookers or girls looking for something. The whole soi runs on tourist money meaning it will attract hookers.

Sure some normal girls will go there, but that's a small %. There are hookers, girls who are not hookers but looking for a free roll on drinks and food all night(hookers?). Gold diggers, ladyboys, party girls who are looking for a western BF to fund their lifestyle etc.

One way to screen girls is to do a quick video call. It's possible to do in LINE and I would know pretty quickly if this is a girl who I would like to meet, both looks wise and personality. It's also good to build some extra attraction.
Don't wear a suit to RCA. You'll be hot as shit and it'll be way too try hard.

Levels is hit or miss. Sometimes it's good and I run into a lot of girls I know from RCA and pool parties, sometimes it's filled with hookers. The past few times I went the outside area seemed to be mostly normal girls so I hang out there, but I don't go there often enough to say if that's the norm, or which days are best.

I like Soi 11 sometimes. Oskar bar and Levels are where I will go when I am there. You can definitely pull normal girls there but you do have to screen for working girls. They won't stick out as much as a Nana Plaza girl, a different type of working girls. Usually dressed more classy and possibly looking for the long con, as opposed to a few thousand baht for the night.
Okay so I finally got just a little bit of time off work. I will be invading Bangkok for only 2 days for my 22nd birthday. For now I'm thinking of staying in the Thonglor or Lower Sukhumvit area, and raising my budget from $30 to about $60 a night.

So my plan for now is to be a tourist during the evening just walking around the Nana/Soi Cowboy areas (just to kind of live out my Hangover 2 dreams haha), go home to change then switch to RCA, more upscale areas for the night.

RioNomad would a blazer with a dress shirt or t-shirt be overkill? I usually dress similar to this. I find that being African-American I always have to dress well, so I wont be confused with the Nigerian drug dealers.

Since I've applied this in Cambodia I find that I normally have it just as easy as anyone else, then it becomes all about the game. I look forward to any tips you guys have and to meet up with some of you for a night out.
Dress like that and you will look fine, but you will melt to the ground because it is hot as fuck here.
Agree with CodyB. You'd be the best dressed dude at RCA, but it'll be hot as fuck. If you can handle the heat I say go for it. Bring the lightest jacket you have and keep it like the photo above, a more casual style. Full suited down I think would work against you, and you'd die of heat stroke.
I've been living in Cambodia for about 2 months, so I'm somewhat used to the heat. Hell the other day it was 102. I usually reserve blazers for the night, during the day its just t-shirts and chinos.
Just found this guy's channel. He has two videos where he is doing "Daygame" in Bangkok Vitaly style.
