The sex trail



Previous
THAILAND Since the Vietnam War, Thailand has gained notoriety as the top sex tourism destination. Although prostitution is illegal, it is widely practiced and it is often protected by authorities who get their share from the business. The Ratchadaphisek neighbourhood - Bangkok's alleged entertainment district - houses entertainment venues offering almost everything from traditional Thai food and music to sexual massages and paid sex. The other popular destinations are Pattaya, Phuket, and Hat Yai.

BRAZIL Known for its beaches, beauties and big parties, Brazil attracts thousands of tourists - mostly Germans, Italians, and other Europeans - who land in Rio, Sao Paulo, Salvador, Porto Seguro and Recife with one thing on their mind. And it's not about enjoying the beautiful beaches and culture but to try their luck in the sexually free society. Experts point out that this might be a perceived notion about the country and the locals don't like this stereotyping -- but the famous carnivals and widespread poverty have established Brazil as a popular destination for adult tourism. The country is reportedly overtaking Thailand as the world's most visited sex tourism destination.

NETHERLANDS Located in the oldest part of Amsterdam, the longwinding cobbled street and the 14th century constructions of De Wallen are a delight for any tourist who admires medieval architecture. But perhaps nobody visits here to see the buildings and streets alone. The Red Light District (RLD) is here, famous for its network of alleys containing several one-room cabins - illuminated with red lights, where prostitutes offer their services. One can often see them posing in window displays to solicit customers. RLD is also famous for its sex shops, sex theatres, peep shows, and coffee shops that sell pot.
