Run riot at Bangkok’s legendary wild party districts
If you don’t intend to party in Bangkok, you better not party anywhere! From notorious go-go bars to flashy lounges to sophisticated clubs, Bangkok is rowdy, fun and chilled-out in the same breath. If a walk on the wild side is what you seek, head straight to Patpong, Bangkok’s infamous sex district (with a night market running through it); and if your desire is to party hard in a cool and urbane setting, the Royal City Avenue (RCA) is lined with hip clubs and bars to do your bidding. Finally, if you are looking for a no-barred hippie-infested zone, stroll down unruly Khao San where cheap raucous bars, smoky shisha lounges and loud trance clubs await your arrival.
Some other Bangkok nightlife districts are very well known by tourists and packed with expats, such as. Nana, Soi Cowboy (as shown in the map; a short street with many go-go bars), and Silom Soi 4.
