This street certainly lives up to its reputation. We did daytime and night time. Day is obviously a lot quieter than night but good to do first I think to get your bearings with all its little alleys with pubs and bars and eateries. Be careful of the tourists on bikes pulling up and asking for directions, most of them... More

LOL Bangla Road really knows how to take you out of your comfort zone but WOW what an experience. There are so many different people! So friendly and what little party animals!!! When you visit Bangla Road, just know, it is not going to be an early night :)

This street hasn't changed much over the past few years. they still harass you for ping pong and lady shows. Good place to see the other side of life. We would walk down about 9-10pm at night on our evening walk. Never felt threatened.

If you are looking like party place, you can rate Bangla Road as 3 out of 5. I think Pattaya's walking street is much better place

This street is absolute hell. Trashy and cheap bars, lots of drunk people, hookers everywhere, people trying to lure you into ping-pong shows or sell you "things". Absolutely awful place to spend an evening. We walked around for maybe one hour and then left as we could not deal with the crowds. This is Thailand at its worst and what... More

My husband and I had a blast roaming through bangla road! The night life is great here... We went bar hopping and did all the fun attractions bangla rd has to offer. Great street vendors and loads of shopping.
