Great for people watching. Feels like there's something for everyone. Lots of people trying to get you to see one of their "interesting" shows...

And bargain like there is no tomorrow! Majority of the shop owners are friendly however they will give you a new definition of hustler! Example: they tried to sell muscle tees for 300-400 baht. We bought them for 150-200 baht. Keep pushing them. They will give! Tshirts we bough 200 baht. We only shopped here! Got everything we needed :)... More

We used to walk down Bangla on the way the beach. It's ok if you like that sort of thing but I wouldn't say that it's Patong's best asset!

Awesome place. .a maze of bars, nightclubs and the saucy side one would expect from phuket. Check out Seduction great club as is illusion but for different reasons. Felt totally safe waking along the road on my own..

Bangla is unashamedly the adult entertainment area of Patong that absolutely comes alive at night. You will be offered a menu for a ping pong show every few metres but just keep walking. if you do see a show be prepared to fork out a fortune for a drink and be amazed and/or shocked by the shows. if nudity offends...

After being here many times, this road is action packed during the day or night just depending on how you want to spend your time and money. During the day there are plenty of stalls offering a wide variety of gifts etc, bars with happy hours, but during the night is when it gets crazy with the ping pong show... More

It's a small stretch of walk when compared to Pattaya walking street, but Bangla road matches it up with it's vibrant lightings. The outmost common thing that every tourist on any walking street in Thailand come across are as follows: 1. Guys on the road keep showing you a chart of Adult shows(special mention ping pong show and F@#$ing show).... More

If visiting Pating you must have the Bangla night experience. It's fantastic just sitting at bars watching the utter madness(in a good term) going on, the various people going about their needs
