Why Bangla Road is special ?

Bangla Road is one of the top Phuket attractions and for good cause. It is something that you cannot truly understand until you have seen it with your own eyes. On the main Bangla Road are bars lining both sides of the road. There are several side roads (called Soi’s) leading from Bangla Road which are more like entertainment complexes then actual roads. These complexes are loaded with beer bars and full of beautiful Thai girls.
 If you are a first time visitor to Soi Bangla, it is like something out of a deranged fantasy. If you are a man, it could be your greatest dream come true. This is the heart of the Phuket sex industry and there is nothing subtle about it. In almost every bar, you will find scantily clad Thai girls and a fair share of men that look like girls, some dancing on poles, others on the road coaxing customers into various bar, the rest sitting around talking with customers, hoping to earn some cash for the night. Bangla Road is not for those who are overly conservative or judgmental.

What to explore at Bangla Road?

Soi Easy

About 200 meters up Bangla Road from the beach road, Soi Easy is the first side street that you will come upon. There are many bars located within this two story complex, but the venues of note are the Hollywood Discotheque and the relatively unknown The Secret A Go Go.

Soi Gonzo

Next up the road is the often overlooked Soi Gonzo. This quiet (of course it’s all relative) little street hosts less then a dozen bars, but for the most part, they are much more friendly. A couple bars worthy of mention are the Black Cat and the very popular Aussie Bar.

Soi Crocodile (Soi Kathoey)

If you are interested in Thailand’s third sex (kathoey’s), then Soi Crocodile is a must see on your next trip to Patong. You may also want to check out the popular The Point Bar and The Rasta Bar. In the very back of this complex you can find the Dclub Discotheque.

Soi Eric

Soi Eric is likely the most well run of all the Soi’s on Bangla Road. Unlike most Soi’s off of Bangla that play different music from bar to bar, Soi Eric offers a single DJ playing the music for the entire complex.

Soi Sea Dragon

Completely remodeled, Soi Sea Dragon is possibly the best looking Soi off of Bangla Road. Known as the top destination for Go-Go Bars. The most notable are Diablo A Go Go, the Devil’s Playground and the famous Suzy Wong and Suzy Wong II.

Soi Tiger

The famous Soi Tiger on Bangla Road is probably the most unique of all the Soi’s. The entire complex of about two dozen bars is literally a huge concrete cave. When there are a lot of people partying on Soi Tiger, it can get pretty sweaty and hot. The majority of bars are Girl Bars (aka Beer Bars), with a few that are similar to go-go’s but not quite. Sharky Bar located right in the front is one of the most popular, it is easily recognized as the bar with all the girls dressed as schoolgirls. Other popular bars include Hot Rock, Crazy Horse, Cocktail and Dreams Bar. Leading up a flight of stairs onto the second floor is the popular Tiger Entertainment Discotheque.

Soi Vegas

Soi Vegas is home to a number of bars as well as a variety of go-go bars. Money Night A Go Go and Roxy A Go Go are popular some of the more popular establishments, as well as a Russian owned go-go called Moulin Rouge. Or you can grab a shot of hard alcohol at the very unique Ice Bar, which is maintained at a cool -15°C and -20°C. The highlight of the complex is likely Seduction Discotheque.

Soi Sukhumvit (on Rat U Thit Road)

Although Soi Sukhumvit is not technically on Bangla Road, it is the first busy cross street and is full of enough action that we consider it an extension of Bangla.
