“Great place to have a drink”
Reviewed June 8, 2012

Forget all the bad things you might have heard or read about Bangkok's red light districts, they are what you want to make of them, Soi Cowboy with all of it's neon lights and scantily clad girls, is many things to many people, but seedy or horrible it is not. Everyone os very friendly whether you just want to sit outside and have a drink and watch the goings on, or go inside the clubs and be a part of the shows. Nowadays you will see many couples and even single western ladies at Soi Cowboy and Soi Nana, just out having a good night.

“Interesting place ...”
Reviewed May 8, 2012

The typical "red light district" of bars and clubs. Some of the clubs drink prices are over priced and some of the entertainment in a few of the bars is not worth the price of admission (free). Saw couples and female visitors as well as a multi national presence of visitors.

“for red light experience it is probably the best. fun for men.”
Reviewed April 23, 2012

its rather like the las vegas of go go bars. not cheap but very lively. lots of neon signs and many many well done out bars, all along two sides of a fairly long street. Lots of gorgeous girls to be entertained by. not cheap, but not too crazy a price either. At this time its the best place for night fun. everywhere else is poor by comparison. food available everywhere around. It boasts the very best chip shop at one end! fantastic for people and girl watching. some good shows. live music, dance, play pool, get a girl. ok for couples, but women may be daunted by it a bit, but not if they understand what it is. very big bars and fun small bars too. try them all!
famous is...long gun....baccara...afterskool....too many to name.

“A Red Light district area of Bangkok”
Reviewed April 12, 2012

If you want to have fun and don't want to go to Patpong Night Market, this is another place at night to have fun with a lot of bars, pubs and restaurants.
