Question: How old do you have to be to date someone in Thailand?

The Age of Consent in Thailand is 15 years old. The age of consent is the minimum age at which an individual is considered legally old enough to consent to participation in sexual activity.

15 years old As specified in Article 279 of the Thai Penal Code, the age of consent in Thailand is 15 years old, regardless of gender or sexual orientation. Individuals 14 years old or younger are not legally permitted to consent to sexual activity.

The law states that you must be at least 20 years or older to enter a bar. 18 or older can work in a bar, but not use it on their day off. The law is enforced in very different ways in different places; in parts of Bangkok and Pattaya it can be strict, sometimes with ID checks at the door, and police raids.
