Bangkok Nightlife

Bangkok’s infamous Patpong district, known for its live sex shows and prostitution, may be the most publicized aspect of the city’s nightlife but it’s far from the only option.

Bangkok after dark remains Asia’s most action-packed scene, in spite of recent changes to the liquor laws that mandated bars close at 2 am rather than remaining open all night as they did in the past. Nonetheless, the local quest for sanuk (fun) rules and can be found in the many bars across the city, most which also serve food and many which offer live music.

One of the most popular club scenes, both with locals and visitors, is found on Silom Road as well as Sukhumvit Road. Admission to discos ranges from about US$5-10, which generally includes a drink or two; cover charges are often double price on Fridays and Saturdays.

Night markets are another popular option. Both Patpong and Silom Road offer night markets that attract thousands (including pickpockets); everything from fake Rolexs to videogames are up for grabs.
