Our Review

Thailand is one of the most visited countries in the Southeast Asia. Every year, it attracts over 30 million tourists from all over the world. Most of the people who visit do not only come to see the famous spots in the country but also to meet new people. Since Thailand has a diverse population, it is a good place to mingle and look for relationships. Because of this, a lot of Thai-focused dating sites have emerged.

One of the most used dating sites in Thailand is ThaiFriendly. It has over 1.4 million active users up to date and still growing. It is a popular dating site, particularly for those who travel to Thailand hoping to meet Thai friends, lifetime partners, or even bedmates. The site is open to everyone and has a friendly environment that makes even the non-Thai speakers feel welcomed. 

ThaiFriendly has a lot of options available for you. Most of its members are looking for people they can actually meet in person, so if you want to spice things up for your Thailand getaway, ThaiFriendly might just help you!

Making Contact

ThaiFriendly Messages
  • Sending messages is limited for standard members
  • Adding people to favourites is free
  • Liking another member is free
  • No match suggestions
  • Basic and advanced search filters are available
  • There is a chatroom

The site offers a lot of ways to contact other members for free. It allows anyone to initiate contact regardless of their membership subscription. You can choose to show people interest, add them to your favourites, or send them a message. However, standard members will not have the same privileges as of that premium members. If you're a standard member, you can only send one message every after 10 minutes, while premium members can send unlimited messages to anyone they like. Free users are also not allowed to message popular members, so if a popular person sends you a message, you can only read it but you won't be able to reply to him or her.

Since ThaiFriendly works just like a social networking site, it does not give you a recommendation list where you can find a potential match. Instead, you get a list of the site's recently active members. From there, you can find interesting people you can connect and mingle with. You can also use search filters to see a list of members that better fit your preferences.

Profile Quality

ThaiFriendly Profile
  • Profile pictures are viewable for free
  • Verification is via email only
  • Profiles are not that detailed
  • Profile information can be later changed
  • A questionnaire about yourself can be optionally answered
  • The profiles are not very detailed
  • Profile pictures are visible to everyone for free

ThaiFriendly's profile page is focused on your basic information such as gender, location, occupation, and etc. Some of the information you need to provide are quantitative like age, height, weight, and preferred age range of your matches. The profile section doesn't give much room for personal thoughts, except for a short "About Me" page where you can write a short paragraph about yourself. Profiles can be changed and updated anytime, so it's okay if you mistakenly added the wrong information upon registration. 

One good thing about the site is that you can upload an unlimited number of photos as long as you follow the rules. Bear in mind that the site does not promote nudity. All uploaded photos are checked and approved, so once a photo violates a rule, it is automatically deleted. 

Profiles are checked and verified via email. If you fail to verify your account within the allocated time, your account may get suspended. 

App

ThaiFriendly App
  • Available on Google Play and the App Store
  • Free to download
  • Has a good user interface
  • Easy to use and very functional
  • Its premium upgrade has a different price

Surprisingly, ThaiFriendly's app version is way better than the website. The app offers a more accessible messaging feature and a better browsing experience compared to the desktop view. Its user interface is pleasing to the eyes and is well-organised. Almost all the site's feature is present on the app except for one: access to your favourites list. In the app version, you need to have an upgraded account to view any kinds of list. 

If you plan to upgrade your account, do take note that the app only offers one type of subscription plan and it has a different price compared to the site. A subscription purchased through the app only costs $19.99/month. That is relatively cheaper compared to the desktop version's premium price of $24.95 for one month. If you want to get a subscription, you might want to try purchasing through the app instead.

Real Life Review

"Thailand has been one of my go-to places for vacations. It offers almost everything, from nice sceneries to good food, not to mention all the girls and ladyboys who are willing to have fun with you during your stay. On my first trip to Thailand, I wanted to be friends with the locals and have them tour me around instead of going with big tour groups. So I did the easiest way to find friends, and that's through online sites. I then stumbled to ThaiFriendly, a dating site where you'll find people who are really willing to meet up with you. The site was just starting to bloom back then, but it already had a lot of active members. Through it, I gained lots of friends and met gorgeous ladies who made my nights unforgettable. Now, every time I go back to Thailand, I always reactivate my ThaiFriendly account. And it has never failed me yet!"  -Christof (33)

Design and Usability

The overall aesthetic of the site is not that impressive. It is too plain that you can get easily bored after a few minutes of scrolling through the site. On its homepage,  you can browse through pictures of online members that are lined up in small thumbnails. From there, you can add people to your favourites or show them your interest. The page may look crowded, but the layout actually makes browsing easy. 

However, although ThaiFriendly's homepage looks full, the profile sections are as empty. It has too much unused space that could have been used for more personal details. Despite its simplicity and lack of wow factor, the site remains to be one of the leading dating sites in Thailand. The secret to that maybe lies on how easy it is to use and understand the site.

ThaiFriendly Price
Payment Options
  • Credit Card
  • PayPal

ThaiFriendly has premium subscriptions that are pocket-friendly. It also offers different packages so you can enjoy the paid features for as long as you prefer. Subscriptions will only cost you less than a dollar per day, depending on the package you choose. For that price, you can enjoy sending unlimited messages, using the advanced search feature, and many more. Do take note that prices are always in US dollars and payments are made via Paypal or credit card. 

If you want to continue using the site as a standard member, there are quite a few features you can enjoy for free like uploading photos, adding people to favourites, and showing interest. However, there are also a few useful features that you won't get to fully enjoy. For example, sending messages is only allowed once every ten minutes, so you will have more waiting-time than actually getting to know a person. But if you have the patience for that, then a standard account might just work for you.

Special Features

ThaiFriendly may only be just a simple site but it has all the right features that can make your dating experience fun and effective. Listed below are the site's features:

Messaging Contact

ThaiFriendly's messaging feature has a unique interface. When you send messages to a person you like, you will be redirected to that person's profile page.
