There are hits and miss of this place. In the day time, there are quiet pubs and food joints. At night, a few of the place become sleazy and X rated. There are touts all over the place and some lady boys parading, looking for their targets.

In the evening, this is the place to be. The pubs, restaurants, shops and even street performer is at here. The Thai Boxing gym is just around the corner if you are interested to watch some action.

Had a lady offer to show us to a "good spot" and when we got in there they tried to charge us $3000 baht for 3 beers!

I have visited Thailand 5 times in the last 3 years and still find Bangla Rd fantastic. All the activity, the noise and everybody out for a good time. The looks on the faces of some of the people walking the street for the first time is hilarious..shock, horror, disbelief... There are heaps of bars with "thumping" live music and... More

Definitely an experience. They charge for show, request tips. Drinks are expensive. Order only one drink and sit on it

While staying in Phuket, you have to come to the busiest place there. Bangla Road in Patong is shopping central! You are sure to barter a deal with the many shops and you will definitely get a good feed. It does get quite busy so stay with your group otherwise you will get lost.

Not for everyone, yet has something for anyone. Best way to describe it as a seedy circus at night. But you gotta check out what the hype is about. Bars, food, scams, bars, ladies, shows, bars ladyboys, stalls, and bars. If you can't find a drink and some company along here, then you don't have a heartbeat. Cheers
