“Sex, drinking, drugs, noise - it's all here”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2014

Definitely if Patong is your destination then you will love it here as this will be what you have come for. It's not my bag. I know it's part and parcel of Thailand, sex tourism, but the women swaying listlessly with dead eyes on podiums performing to old and overweight white guys seemed depressing.

Bangla Road, haven't seen this before. Although a lot of pubs, no problems! Enjoyed the nightly vibes!

“Good to experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2014

All your senses are alerted when walking along Bangla road. It is like walking into a wall of noise, with open bars pumping out music and most people seem to be having a good time. Yes you do get regularly hassled by people trying to sell you sell you sunglasses etc, but it is worth it for the experience. I went in low season, I can't even imagine to think how busy it must be in peak season.
