“Night life”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2012

Brilliant road, its where it all goes on, from lady boys to ping pong shows, bit annoying you cannot get up to the top without being asked at least 100 times if u want to see a ping pong show.... sadly also is the live stock being offered to photograph with you, they are taken from their families and mothers very young, it made me angry that the public dont say 'NO' because if there was not a demand for it, they would stay in the jungle where they belong

“Madness!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2012

Busy! Hectic! completely in your face! lots of offers for ping pong shows...after a while you get used to brushing them off and not responding with a no thanks. This is the heart of the nightlife on the island - lots of fun to be had! loads of drink great offers & friendly bar staff to play jackpot and connect 4 with while you drink like there's no tomorrow. enjoy!

“Check it out”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2012

The street is closed off in the evening becoming a parade ground for all manner of people. Go, and at the very least walk half way up and back.

“Soi Eric across from Moon Bar place to go!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2012

Was our wedding partys official bar run by a great english guy named Anton who is great to drink with himself and will even give the bell a ring occasionally. If i went back to Phuket would be the only bar to drink at for me and cheap drinks!!!!!!! The rating of excellent is refering to Soi Eric bar the street itself at night is quite gross and swarming with people trying to get you into ping pong shoes etc some interesting people do walk past!

“Bangla Road”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

Everyone goes to Bangla Rd when in Patong. Its full of bars, lady boys, and heaps of browsing tourists. Its ok for a look and maybe a few nights of drunken fun, but apart from that its just a haven for sleazy weirdos. Its a must to visit but not somewhere to go every night of your stay.
