This road is insane, tons of bars, girlie bars, pubs, clubs, etc. One big party street that is all party and all tourist. With the exception of one decent pub with live band and a little alley with some good thai food, this place is a walk once through to see what it's all about, then stay away. Unless of course this is what you came for:)

Depends on your preferences. If you like Bangkok's Patpong/Soi Cowboy a-go-go/disco places with loud music then this is definitely the place for you. What I found disturbing was the touts selling photo-takings with captured baby gibbons. The poor creatures looked like they have been drugged into submission.

Bangla road is a short road in Patong that has a heap of shops where you can bargain for copy brand items like handbags and shoes. There are bars and restaurants where you can get good cheap meals. It changes at night, when it is blocked off to traffic and fills with tourists. Locals try to get you into the bars to watch pole dancers, ping pong shows and other seedy sex type shows. They don't cost anything other than the drinks you buy. The street gets so busy you can get a bit claustophobic although the atmosphere is fun.

This may sound silly when talking about Bangla rd, and other areas in Patong, but my eldest two sons raved about the 7elevens and the great food they could get there. They came back to the hotel with 'chicken pizza' toasted sandwiches, microwave heated Thai food, hamburgers and a range of other things you could only dream about in an Australian 7eleven. They were also so cheap with the meal and a soft drink combined costing under $2. The shopping was good too, but my boys rate holidays, and life in general, on how their stomachs are filled. So the best part for them was the discovery of the food in 7eleven and to a degree another similar place called 'family mart'. Both of these places were plentiful along Bangla rd and its surrounding area.

If you like walking along the Vegas strip, go here. Otherwise, its horribly depressing. Lots of flyers and salespeople for nefarious shows. Very crowded and expensive for Thailand.
