a road full of bars , poles , lady boys , street performers and life! if you get over thinking its seedy then watching the most talented dancers performing on poles is quite riveting! or sit on a stool facing the road and watch life go by! great to get to talk to local people about this side of Thailand....

Cheap bars for the entire road, with few small shops selling cheap fake. Not for everyone, and not for shopping either. You are better off at somewhere else if you don't fancy it.

Exiting place but tacky! Definitely the nightlife of Phuket but still a bit a tacky. Shopping is the same as everywhere but overinflated because of the tourist area.

Just terrible. Sad to see how tourism has ruined a beautiful place. A place for all the creepy men looking for thai gfs and young party goers. Not a place for children at all. Constantly hassled to see the ping pong show. Would not recommend to go here unless you plan to get stupidly drunk and and want to see... More

We spent most of our time at a pub called New York in Bangla Road - they had an 8 piece band & they were great musicians with a fantastic repertoire. The waitresses were friendly & accommodating & we enjoyed quite a few awesome evenings there! Highly recommended. Otherwise, trying to avoid the millions of marketers trying to sell us... More

If you want to party the Bangla Rd is the place for you, as it certainly gets wild. Defiantly not for those wanting peace and quiet, but I would recommended just having a walk down the road at night as it devoutly is an experience.

Probably the worst side of Patong Beach. Full of seedy bars, lady boys, people hastleing you to buy cheap fakes. Very busy at night and noisy. Not my cup of tea but if you like this sort of thing then it's the place to be

Bangla Road is really loud, busy and full of bars, lady boys and girls dancing around poles, who look bored stiff & would rather be anywhere else on this planet. However, saying that, it is good fun to walk up & down the street to experience the atmosphere & then end up in a bar, which has chairs facing the... More

Even if youre not a party animal, its worth taking a stroll around late evening to soak up the atmosphere. The whole street is lit with neon lighting lined with bars, clubs, gogo dancers, drag queens etc. Quite an interesting street to visit. But be prepared to be touted left right and center.
