, also called Jalan Falatehan, is where American and English older expats go.Not all the bars there have prostitutes (Sportmans and One Tree Bar are ayam-free for instance), but most do.

Ayam bars refer to bars where most of the girls are prostitutes or hostesses.

In the clubs where expats go, prostitution is quite usual but it is much more subtle than in the places frequented by locals.

Girls may ask for money directly, but they may also be looking for "taxi money" only, meaning that she will tell you in the morning she needs money to go back home and she will expect you to pay for it.

but in spite of that, they are still in a bar, trying to get another guy for the night.

One more time, be extremely careful when engaging in emotional relationships with these girls because you do not want to be attached to someone who screws a half dozen guy a month for 50 bucks.

Im not saying it's bad, i'm saying it messes up your brain.

The other option is to ask for "gifts": Mobile phone, jewellery, clothes, etc...

After a short period, they will also probably have a brother, an uncle or a cow who's sick, and who can only be cured if you wire them a thousand bucks...

Don't be stupid, as soon as she asks you for money, just end the relationship.

I'm not saying you should never give anything, but at least use your brain to sort what is true and what is just lies.
