Growing Prostitution in Kathmandu

Posted by Anup Baral September 08, 2016 :
Government policies[edit]. Although there are no laws in Nepal criminalizing sex work specifically, there are some laws that were enacted throughout the 1980s.In recent years, millions of women and girls have been trafficked across borders and within countries.In the late 17th century, the brothel area of Kamathipura was established to service British troops in what was then called Bombay, India. In 2004, the cost to buy a trafficked girl from Nepal in what is now called Mumbai is 100,000 to 120,000 rupees ($2,004 to $2,405). Thamel is the tourist centre of Nepal. It is the most popular nightlife area in Kathmandu. There are hundreds of restaurants, bars, clubs and dance bars. Most of the bars, restaurants, and pubs close before midnight. But, some clubs and bars are opening till late. More than 70% of the regular customers of pubs, bars and clubs are Nepalese. You can find many younger locals hanging around these establishments. Please avoid making any unnecessary arguments with them.

Traveling gives us the opportunity to disconnect from our regular life. You get to forget your problems/issues for a few weeks, it can also help you figure things out that you would not have understood without the distance traveling can give you. We all have crazy schedules, work and a family to take care of, going away alone or with some friends can give you distance and perhaps even make you realize how important these people are for you. Like the saying says: we never know what we have until we lose it.

Another great benefit is the relaxation you get to do. It’s nice to live life to its fullest and enjoy a stress free time with yourself. Going on vacation lets us recharge our “batteries” by disconnecting us from our regular life. When we come back we feel invigorated and we are happy to be back in our day to day routine. It’s a very good stress remover that has a lot more to give than most people are willing to accept.

Traveling increases our knowledge and widens our perspective. To view new customs, different ways of living is fantastic for the mind. It gives us a new perspective about life and especially our life, it can help us change some of our habits or even create new ones. When I travel I usually make it a point to try new food, some cultures don’t have fries in their diet and they are all skinny, others use spices to give taste and not oils or fats. Discovering different values and ways to get by in life is really interesting. You also need to visit exotic new places and discover what this wonderful world has to offer.
