Overview

Riga has it all – a charming old town, great night-life and its near a beach. It’s the most expensive Baltic country but that will probably change. The biggest attraction here is…

The Girls

Book an appointment with your physician before your return flight; after spending a few days here your neck will be in tethers. I mean it’s ridiculous, you can’t even eat breakfast without being constantly distracted by the barrage of stunning specimens on display. With naturally beautiful faces and shamefully slim, well proportioned physiques, only Kiev might compare. Even the mannequins are hot! They may a take a bit of gaming so you need to step up. Some social proof and a little peak-cocking is advised. You need to get here. You need to get here now. Click here.

Nightlife Recommendations

Conveniently  there is a good concentration of night options in the old town. Your mission: Try and avoid the British stag parties.

I love you bar

This place has two floors and cheap beers. Upstairs is better for conversation. I actually got approached here!

Club Essential

Massive after hours club packed with tons of hotties and even a few 10’s!

Any more suggestions on this section would be welcome. I can not, for the life of me remember the names of half the places I went to.

Getting High (courtesy of webehigh.com)

Law enforcement: If you get caught with amount smaller than 1 gram it’s only an administrative offence and you can get away with a fine or bribe – approximatelly 30Ls (~17$) should be enough. But on the other hand – if you are foreigners, they will probably want more – just act you don’t have any more cash and that you’re in hurry – it is very likely they will accept the the offer. But if it’s more than 1 gram you will be considered as dealer and then you’re in trouble. But it is extremely uncommon to get searched without a reason – so if you don\’t get in any trouble and/or act VERY suspicious, you should be safe.

Where to buy marijuana: It’s best if you have a friend who has a friend, because if you buy form a unknown dealer on the street it is quite possible to get low quality weed. You can try asking people who look like ones who should know… I highly recommend asking punk-looking youth. They are usually very friendly and will tell you where to get it (or even sell you their own). A place to look for dealers is Old Riga but don’t expect good quality and price. Never ask skinheads! They will act very friendly and tell you they know a place to buy cheap and very good marijuana and ask to follow. If you do so, expect to get beaten and robbed.

Marijuana prices: Usual price is 7Ls (14$) for a gram. But it will be more in Old Riga and a bit cheaper if you\’re lucky to find a good dealer.
Prices vary 6 LVL – 10 LVL ($11 – $18,5) per gram Actually “gram” is not a fixed value in Latvia, but the price is. It can happen that you buy from a gypsy dealer, you can pay 10 LVL for the thing called “gram” by that dealer, but actual ammount would be smaller. $1 approx. = 0,54 LVL

My Riga Experience

I was here for 2 nights with 4 good friends. I k-closed 2 local girls  and made out with a Finnish girl  (much to her BF’s dismay I’d say), but unfortunately no full close. At least I have an excuse to come back! I imagine a 2nd meet-up and an adherence to Mystery’s 7 hour rule would have you golden.

  1. Did you get around with english ok, do they speak russian over there?

  2. Naughtynomad,

    Your conversions are all messed up: “7Ls (4$)”

    7 LVL is like 14 USD.
