This you must see! It is an amazing experience from start to finish. Some good pubs with cheap drinks. Lots of shopping by day and street vendors by night . The ladyboys are lovely although you may not get a photo unless you pay. A must if you are visiting Patong.

Bangla road has it all from bars, clubs, restaurants, shops, Tailors. What ever you need you'll find it in this strip. Also be aware this is where the ladyboys reside and wait to pounce on you for money for taking pictures with them. Bangla road is the liveliest spot in Patong, there is never a dull moment!!

After spending a week in Ko Phangnan and then a week in Krabi, I had high hopes for Bangla road. Sadly this area is a bastardised tourist trap, full of drunks and aggressive ladyboys at night. During the day you cannot walk more than a few meters before being harassed into buying some cheap crap from a street vendor. This is without a doubt the least welcoming and most hostile part of Thailand that I have visited (I also had my phone and wallet stolen on Patong beach at the end of Bangla road). You couldn't pay me to return.

You cant go to Patong without going to Bangla Rd in the evening, The thai people can be in your face about Ping Pong shows, but its all apart of the atmosphere :)

Lots of shops selling the same thing.
Wasn't overly impressed.
Didn't walk it a great deal at night so this review is based on the late morning / afternoon time slot.
