If you really want to meet Phuket girls, this is waiting for you…
No, this is not one of these optical illusions where water and rocks turn into the face of a beautiful woman.
There’s a reason why I shared this image with you:
I want you to understand that meeting and dating Phuket girls is an adventure.
When you compare finding a girlfriend on this island in the South of Thailand with dating in Bangkok, you’ll understand what I mean.
The simple act of approaching a woman in the capital city can lead to multiple bone fractures. Even though you stand on the sidewalk, motorcycle drivers are coming from all sides. The smog is burning in your eyes. Oh, and don’t forget the street stand you crash into while you are running after the hottest girl you’ve seen all day long.
This won’t happen to you when you meet and date women in Phuket City. With less than 100.000 inhabitants, beautiful beaches and incredible landscapes, meeting Thai girls becomes an adventure.

Please Not another Article about Phuket Bar Girls
Sorry if I have to disappoint you, but this article is for men who want to find a girlfriend in Phuket.
Yep, a girlfriend, not a girlfriend experience.
In case you are a sex tourist and you want to inform yourself about the best go-go bars in Patong, this article is not for you. This article is only for you if you want to come to Phuket because you want to meet amazing Thai women and not a bar girl who you over, steals your wallet, and chats with her second sponsor right after.
If that’s what you want, you should check out this Phuket go-go bar guide.
Just like Pattaya is about so much more than the Walking Street, Phuket is about so much more than the go-go bars on Soi SeaDragon and Bangla Road.
One of my friends in Thailand found his wife on this island. And no, she is not a bar girl. She is smart, beautiful and has never danced on a pole…besides the one in their bedroom. She is one of the amazing girls that you can meet in Phuket when you stay away from the go-go bars and soapy massage parlors.
Are you ready to meet a girl like her?
5 Surprising Facts about Phuket Girls
Phuket is not Bangkok. It’s also not Pattaya. And it’s the complete opposite of Chiang Mai. But the landscape, the culture, and the language are not the only things that are different. The women are different too, very different.
I have to admit that I only dated one girl from Phuket.
But I have friends who have more dating experience when it comes to Southern Thai women. Before I started to write this article, I chatted with the guy I already mentioned, the guy who married a woman from Phuket.
He was nice enough to share the characteristics of the local girls with me.
1. Your Phuket Girlfriend is Religious
You will find more Muslims in the South of Thailand than anywhere else in the country. But they are still a minority.
There’s a high chance that the women you’re going to meet are Buddhists, at least when they are not Indonesian or Malaysian immigrants.
And the women in the South of Thailand can be very religious.
My friend is not the only one who said that. I’ve heard it from other Farangs who dated Thai girls from the South and I also read it on multiple forums.
In other words, having sex after “hello” and “how are you?” is easy when you are talking to a bar girl from Isaan, but it’s a bit more difficult when you’re talking to a girl in Phuket who has a normal job and strong religious beliefs.
Sex with Phuket girls on the first date is definitely possible, but you might need at least one date to get to third base.
2. Your Phuket Girlfriend Works in the Tourist Industry
…or in a bar.
Seriously, these are the two options.
This city is not famous for its thriving factories and crazy startup culture. It’s a laid-back beach town that lives from tourism and from foreigners who move there to study Thai.
It’s very likely that the girls you meet either work in the tourist industry or as a language teacher. The good news is that both of these types of girls can speak English. According to my friend it’s three times easier to meet a girl who speaks English when you are in Phuket than when you are in Bangkok.
I don’t know if that’s true. It’s on you to find it out.
3. Your Phuket Girlfriend is More Traditional
Your future girlfriend is not only more religious, but also more traditional that the women in Bangkok.
Religion and a traditional attitude are always correlated, but they are not the same. You might not like her religious attitude towards sex, but I promise you that you will love her traditional family values…at least when you are looking for a serious girlfriend.
When I asked my friend if he ever regretted that he married his wife, he asked me if I’m mentally retarded.
Well, I guess that means no.
Even my Thai girlfriend who comes from Bangkok told me that the women from the South of Thailand are even more traditional when it comes to family, respect of elders and marriage than the women in other parts of the country.
Marrying a Phuket girl doesn’t sound too bad, does is?
4. Your Phuket Girlfriend Has Dark Skin
If you are into dark skinned girls, you will love Phuket. And if you are into Indian girls, you will love it even more (some of them look a little bit Indian).
Thanks to influences from Malaysia, Indonesia and India, the women in the South of Thailand are very dark-skinned. Yes, Phuket girls are darker than the girls you meet in Bangkok and they are way darker than the light-skinned girls in Chiang Mai.
One tip: She probably thinks that her skin is ugly because in Thai society white skin is considered beautiful. Make her smile by telling her how beautiful her skin is.
5. Your Phuket Girlfriend is Not an Isan Girl
Let me be very clear about this:
Just because your future girlfriend has dark skin doesn’t mean that she is an Isan girl.
I know, it can be tricky to distinguish these two, at least when you are new to Thailand. But falling for the wrong girl can lead to a lot of trouble.
The girls from Isan are also dark-skinned, but they are usually a bit smaller…and they are the ones who work in the bars. Don’t forget to ask the girl you are dating where she’s REALLY from.
Where to Find Your Girlfriend in Phuket Town
Some people say Phuket city, others say Phuket town. It doesn’t matter how you call it.
The only thing that matters is that this place has beautiful beaches and stunning girls. Let’s be honest. Unless you have one eye on your knee and the other one on your back, you will find a cute Thai girl among the 76.000 inhabitants.
And like I said, this town or city or whatever you may call it has more to offer than go-go bars and massage parlors. When you explore the city, you will quickly realize that there are dozens of opportunities to meet cute Phuket girls.
Meet Your Phuket Girl at the Mall
Even though it’s not a big city, it has some really big malls. And who do you meet in malls? Sexy shop assistants, college girls who are shopping for clothes and beautiful waitresses who are waiting to take your order and your phone number…
When I traveled to Phuket for the first time, I went to three of the biggest shopping malls. I have no idea about the other ones, but when I think back to the following three, I remember dozens of beautiful girls.
Jungceylon Shopping Mall:
The Jungceylon shopping mall is located opposite the Bangla Road. With over 45.000 visitors a day, it’s impossible to not find at least one Phuket girl you are attracted to.
I guarantee you that you will leave with at least three phone numbers, once you have talked to girls on all three floors.
Central Festival Mall:
The central festival mall is located outside of Phuket but with more than 120 stores, it is perfect to meet Phuket girls.
Just think about it. Thanks to the Thai employment system (that I will never understand) a shopping mall with 120 stores has at least 500 cute shop assistants that you can talk to.
Banana Walk at Patong Beach:
What if you prefer to hang out at the beach in Patpong?
Then the Banana Walk is the perfect mall for you. And in case you don’t find any cute girl to talk to, you can try your luck when the sun goes down in the Banana Disco that’s right next to the mall.
But I’m sure you find at least one shop assistant who wants to meet you when her shift is over. Why don’t you just wait for her in one of the many cafes and restaurants? Eat something at Segafredo Zannatti Espresso and get to know her at Kentucky Fried chicken when she finished her work. Oh, wait. Do it the other way around.
Meet Your Girlfriend on the Phuket Walking Street
The Walking Street in Phuket is not the same as the Walking Street in Pattaya. In Pattaya, this is the place where you can find the bar girls and freelancers. In Phuket this place is called Bangla Road. The Walking Street is something entirely different.
The Walking Street is the beautiful old town district of the city and it’s not just a great place to eat delicious Thai food.
It’s also a great place to meet girls. Just walk around, enjoy the atmosphere, and approach one or two women.
Meet Phuket Girls at the Beach Club
Do you want to meet high society Phuket girls?
You can do it, at least when you go to one of the popular beach clubs on this incredible island. Beach clubs are the best places to meet Thai girls who want to meet foreigners.
The girls know that their chances to find a guy increases when they go to a place where they can show their body in a sexy bikini.
During the day you will see a lot of beautiful women in tight bikinis and during the night you will see the same women partying like there’s no tomorrow.
Dream Beach Club:
The dream beach club is located at the Layan Beach. It’s also one of the largest beach clubs in Thailand.
You can jump in the pool, you can enjoy a drink at the bar and you can relax with your future girlfriend on one of the over 50 sofas. At night you can then dance with her at the Penthouse Dream club.
If you don’t think that you can have a good time and meet beautiful Phuket girls there, you should have a look at what these guys have to say about this place…
Xanax Beach Club:
Actually, I planned to share three beach clubs with you, but my friend who’s married to the girl from Phuket and who lived there for two years (now he lives in Bangkok) told me that the Paradise Beach club is not the right club for you.
Apparently, it’s the perfect beach club if you visit it with your girlfriend, but not if you go there in order to meet women. According to him, there are “only white chicks and couples”. Let me know in the comments below if he’s right or not.
And you can also let me know in the comments below if the Xana Beach club is really that amazing to meet sexy Phuket girls. If I can believe my friend and the video below, it’s incredible, especially in the evening.
How to Meet Your Girlfriend at Patong Beach
There are many other beaches, such as Laem Sign Beach, Bang Tao Beach and the Freedom Beach, but Patong is the most famous one.
It’s the one beach that everyone knows and that everyone goes to.
No matter if you want to meet cute Phuket girls or tourist girls, this is the beach you want to visit. Just remember that picking up local Thai girls and tourist girls at the beach is not the same…
How to Meet Phuket Girls at Patong Beach
Thai girls, especially the ones in the South, are extremely shy. Thanks to their religious upbringing and their traditional attitude towards dating and marriage, they are not used to talking to strangers.
The good news: You can easily spot them.
The Thai girls who show their tattoos in tiny thongs are the ones you want to avoid. I know, some of them look extremely hot, but chances are high that a girl who walks around like that doesn’t work in one of the malls or hotels. I think you know what I mean.
These are not the kind of girls you want to meet when you are looking for a girlfriend in Phuket. You want to meet traditional Southern girls. And in order to meet these girls you have to run “friendly” aka “nice guy” game.
You can’t just tell them that they look sexy in their bikini. This will freak them out. Heck, they don’t even wear bikinis. They either wear bathing suits or even t-shirts. Daddy would kill her if he saw his daughter in a thong.
How do you approach a traditional Phuket girl at the beach?
Be patient and give her time to get comfortable around you. It’s okay to give her a direct compliment. Just don’t go overboard.
“Your skin is really beautiful” (she’ll love it)
“You looks so good” (She’ll smile awkwardly before she runs away)
How to Meet Tourist Girls at Patong Beach
You are here because you are into Thai girls. But maybe you are also attracted to Russian women or to women from other Asian countries.
No matter if you want to date Pim or Oksana, you’ll find her in this city.
You can meet thousands of beautiful Thai women in this city, but you can also meet thousands of tourist girls. You won’t believe how many hot Russian tourists travel to Phuket to relax, to party and to experience an adventure…
These girls are here because they want to have fun. Many of them are open to a no-strings-attached holiday fling. You just have to know how to talk to them.
And don’t worry. With tourist girls you can be a bit more direct than with traditional Southern Thai girls.
Where to Meet Sexy Phuket Girls at Night
Where do you find sexy party girls in Phuket?
You go to Patong and you wait until the sun goes down.
If you love invigorating music, wild parties and young Thai girls in tight dresses, you absolutely have to explore the Patong nightlife.
Of course, I can’t promise you that you will meet your future girlfriend, but I promise you that you will meet many sexy Thai girls.
Let’s have a look at the three best clubs that turn finding a girlfriend in Phuket into an unforgettable adventure.
Meet Phuket Girls at the Seduction Nightclub
This is the largest club in town and it’s quite common to see more than 1000 women shaking their assets at the same time.
The club is located at the Bangla Road. Yes, I know, that’s the road with all the go-go bars, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t meet normal Thai girls and tourist girls in this club.
As long as you don’t come before midnight, you can meet everything from curious college girl to sexy shop assistant who wants to party and forget about her boss. Nevertheless, most of the girls you’ll meet in this club are tourists and high society Thai girls.
Meet Phukt Girls at the Illuzion Show and Discotheque
The Illuzion Show & Discotheque, which is also located on the Bangla Road, is perfect for you when you want to date Thai girls instead of tourist girls. You’ll find more Thai women here than in the Seduction Nightclub.
The club has three main areas, a dance floor, a balcony and a VIP lounge. I’m sure you’re going to meet at least one cute Phuket girl in any of these three areas.
Meet Phuket Girls at the White Room Nightclub
Another great place to meet local girls is the White Room Nightclub in Patong beach. And again, it’s located on the Bangla Road, just like any other good club in this town.
Many Thai girls go there because they want to meet a classy foreigner like you. And you need to be classy to get in. Better leave your elephant shirt at home.
How to Meet Phuket Girls Online
Meeting Phuket girls in the mall is fun. Dancing with them in the club is also fun. But what if you don’t give a beep about fun and you just want to meet local Thai girls in the most efficient way?
As a man who refuses the Thai sanuk culture and is all about efficiency (are you German?) the best way to find a girlfriend in Phuket is called...
Banging bar girls!
Nah, I’m just kidding. It’s called online dating.
Online dating allows you to get to know dozens of Thai girls at the same time. Unless you clone yourself twelve times and send your clones up and down Patong beach, you simply can’t beat that.
Meeting Phuket girls online is easy as pie.
Even the most traditional girl who would freak out if you talked to her at the beach will open up once she is online.
I don’t say that you shouldn’t go to the beach. You definitely should. But wouldn’t it make more sense to meet a stunning Thai girl at the beach AFTER and not before she showed internet in you? Of course it would.
But which Thai online dating site is the best for you?
- If you are looking for a young and sexy party girl who might or might not become your girlfriend, I recommend Thai Friendly (click here to check out my Thai Friendly Review).
- If you are looking for a girlfriend with whom you can have a serious relationship, I recommend Thai Cupid (click here to check out my Thai Cupid Review)
You must know what kind of relationship you want. That’s why you are the one who must decide between these three sites.
…or test all of them and decide which one you like best.
Where to Take Your Phuket Girlfriend on a Date
What if you want a girlfriend and not just a girlfriend experience?
Well, then you should take the Thai girl of your dreams on a date. Of course, you can take her to the street food stands around the corner, but come on, you are in Phuket.
This island has so many romantic dating venues.
Going to a street food stand can save you a few bucks, but taking her to one of the following three dating venues can lead to an unforgettable night, a beautiful morning and a happy relationship.
Take Your Phuket Girlfriend to the La Grita at Patong Beach
This Italian restaurant is located at the southern end of Patong bay and its romantic scenery will make it impossible for your Phuket girl to not fall in love with you.
I went there with my girlfriend and it was amazing.
It has an indoor and an outdoor area, but don’t even think about taking her inside. It’s way more romantic when you are outside and enjoy the view over the bay. Just keep in mind that it’s not the cheapest restaurant in town. But it’s worth it.
Take Your Phuket Girlfriend to the The Surface Bar and Restaurant
The Surface Bar and Restaurant is located at the La Flora Resort at Patong beach. It’s an open-air restaurant that allows a breathtaking view over the Patong bay.
But I have to be honest. I’ve never been there. From what I’ve heard it should be great, even though I can’t believe that it’s better than La Grita.
Thake Your Phuket Girlfriend to Your Room
Your room is a great place that’s located in Phuket. It’s probably somewhere between the city center and the beach. It might be an apartment or a hotel room. It doesn’t matter. The only thing that matters is that it’s the perfect place to end a date.
No matter if you take her to La Grita or to The Surface Bar and Restaurant, you need to take her to your room. Your room is the only place where she can allow herself to let go of her inhibitions.
She might be shy in public, but once she’s in your room, your Phuket girl will show you how much she wants to be your girlfriend…
Summed Up Wisdom
Finding a girlfriend in Phuket is not that hard. Of course, you can have a girlfriend experience with one of the bar girls, but I don’t recommend that. Too much stress and too much “give me money”. It would be stupid to ignore all the beautiful and normal girls in Phuket.
You can meet these religious and traditional Thai women at the mall, at the club or at the beach. The best and easiest way, however, is to meet Phuket girls online. There are many Thai dating sites, but when you are serious about finding a girlfriend in Phuket, Thai Cupid is the best dating site for you. And no matter to which romantic restaurant you take her, don’t forget to show her your room with your big and cozy bed.
I am in phuket
