Also, why so many Western men go to Thailand to have sex?

Why, why, why?

Thai people are the world's friendliest. You don't have to go there for sex to have a great and relaxing time.

Not only in Thailand but also in the Philippines. I read somewhere that a large percentage of Americans going to the Philippines, came only for sex.
Philippines and Thailand do not have very strict laws towards prostitution. Pedophiles can have sex with 12 or 13 years old very easily.

they also go there for the "lady boys"

I saw a documentary about a US doctor that often traveled to Thailand to have sex with small children, he was dead serious about it to and the kids were under 10 years old

child molesters and perverts must love it over there

Because it is cheap. At the same time there is a high risk of contracting HIV. Play at your own risk.

I heard that the prostitutes in India are even cheaper.

It's not all sex tourism...

I'd say because of the beaches, hospitality of the people, culture, the fact that until recently it was impossible to visit Vietnam or Myanmar. Malaysia is also quite popular.

I have been to Bangkok, but believe that it is overrated. Nothing against the Thai people, they are generally friendly and kind. As a tourist, there is only one reason that I can think of why male tourists would go there.

The majority of travellers both male and female who go to Bangkok do not go in for the sex tourism. Bangkok isn't that great, the temples are kind of cool from an architectural standpoint, the food is good, but that's about it. Not that interested in shopping.

Actually, they have extremely tough laws for pedophiles. Most western countries have laws that can extradite pedophiles back to face prosecution.

I.E. The famous 'Gary Glitter' case....English Rock Star who was a pedophile in Cambodia. There was another while I was teaching in Korea. Some Canadian pedophile who was briefly teaching in Korea, but was posting photos online about his Thailand 'boys'. Interpol (International Police) did a quick international manhunt and he's sitting in a Canadian prison.

In short, pedophiles aren't tolerated whatsoever, anywhere. Not saying they don't try, you can look at any country anywhere, and find people getting busted for it. But they are being busted for it.

Your post is kind of the equivelant to, 'there is nothing to do in New York but score some coke and find a hooker'. Maybe for SOME, but most don't go to NYC for that purpose.

For 'backback travelers' or 'tourists', you'll see milllions of western FAMILIES (with their little kids), western WOMEN (traveling solo or with friends), and western men as well....all traveling around in Asia....either long-term or short-term. If a person is interested in travel, Thailand has an extremely rich culture, at a low price, with a ton of other countries all around it to visit and backpack as well.
