It is famous for being sleazy, sophisticated and social at the same time. It’s a favourite amongst the Expats who come here to have a taste of the rich nightlife. The area is very cosmopolitan in its appeal considering the variety it offers. Let us take a walk down this night lover’s paradise to know more.

 

Sukhumvit Soi Nana

Attractions

Nana Entertainment Plaza: A must for all travellers wanting to have a taste of the sleazy side of Bangkok. The Nana Plaza located on the Soi 4 offers a visual feast for any traveller’s who wish to explore Thailand’s sleaziness. You are welcomed heartily at the entrance by lady boys and girls who try to approach you though in a friendly manner. Once inside you are home to a lot of open air beer bars and many lady boy bars. Angel Witch, with its lesbian and dominatrix shows is also a big hit. G-Spot, Casanova & Temptations are amongst the other popular ones. Make sure that you can distinguish between a girl and a lady boy and not end up with a lady boy, as is mostly the case. It is walking distance from the Nana BTS Skytrain station.

Soi Cowboy: Famous for its Go Go Bars, this place is a hot favourite amongst Bangkok travellers. This famous Red light district attracts the customer by its beautiful street lights adorning the streets. The term Go Go Bars refers to bars where girls dance in bikinis. This place is originally named after the African-American Cowboy who started the first bar here. There are atleast 20 such Go Go bars inside the Soi Cowboy. You don’t need to be an expert to here as it fairly simply laid out here with no traps.  You just order for a drink and soon you will be accompanied by one of those girls wearing the bikinis, just be kind to befriend them an offer them drinks, this could well turn out to be your exquisite date. You could also tip the girls who are dancing on the stage. Drinks here are cheap so you can have a blast of a time making friends with these sexily dressed women. Suzie Wong Go Go Bar is one of the better ones here.
