Sick of Pokemon Go at home? Had enough rats, birds and worms? Well, we can’t guarantee epic spawns, but we can guarantee epic experiences when you Pokemon Go in Bangkok or Pattaya!
Meet new people, make new friends, and indulge in the fun that’s Pokemon Go in Thailand. They’ve even built a uniquely Thai culture around the phenomenon, such as the virally catchy Pokemon remix song, and the local Thai names of your favourite Pokemon!
DID YOU KNOW?
Snorlax is called “Ka-Bee-Kon” and Dratini is called “Mini-Lui”. These are their Thai names from the Thai version of the Pokemon cartoon.
So, when you hear someone yell “KA BEE KON!” and see a crowd hurrying in a particular direction, you know you’re in for a Snorlax haul. Join in the fun and follow the gang if you want to catch all those sweet sweet spawns. Don’t be afraid to ask the locals about what they’re catching, they’re always happy to share!
Here are the top secret locations that only Thai locals know, most with at least 3-4 PokeStops (with never ending lures!) at a single spot! The perfect place to farm up your candies, stardust and experience points while chilling at a corner. Don’t believe us? Check out our photos below!
