In addition to its scenic and cultural beauties, tourists who choose Thailand as their holiday destination do so for its wild nightlife. If it is your first trip to Thailand or if you want some useful tips on what to do in the evening in Bangkok, Pattaya, Phuket and other Thai tourist destinations, read this Thailand by night guide.
Thailand by Night
Of course, we must start our guide on Thai nightlife from its vital and worldly Capital, Bangkok. Pat Pong is the most active night-time district in the city. Here you will find all kinds of clubs and discos, from the most “traditional” to the most transgressive ones.
Soi Cowboy night
For those looking for just a bit of healthy Italian-style fun, we recommend the Silom road area, especially the Silom Soi 4 road, where small pubs and discos are concentrated similarly to those found in Italian cities. Tourists and Thais frequent these places and here, you can drink a glass with friends and dance in peace.
For those looking for the most extreme and transgressive fun, which has made Thailand famous all over the world, you have to move to the Pat Pong area where there are Go-go bars, similar to local for the lap dance but much more modern and elegant those present in the West.
Thailand, in particular, tourist cities, are quite gay-friendly and it is not difficult to find places where even homosexuals can have fun in peace.
In addition to being known for the Nana Plaza, a club that collects Go-go bars and nightclubs, is known for its massage centers, some of which are open 24 hours a day. These centers are reserved for men and offer a wide selection of massages, also performed by more than one or two girls at the same time.
The best nightclubs in Bangkok are the Concept 2, the Q-Bar, the Angel Disco, the Spasso, and the Rivas, even if there are really for every taste and every pocket. Recall that many of the girls who “board” Western tourists in clubs are escorts. Even if they do not explicitly say so, it is very likely that after the night they ask you to be paid. So, if you do not want bad surprises, make sure that the beautiful Thai girl you met is really interested in you and not in your pocket.
In Bangkok, there are also discos where you go specifically to meet some escorts. These include the Thermae, the Beer Garden, the Grace Hotel, and many others, particularly in Sukhumvit Soi.
Nightlife in Pattaya
Pattaya is a tourist resort among the most famous for its nightlife. Only along Pattaya beach, there are more than 800 places suitable to satisfy all tastes and needs, even the most transgressive. Here you will find many Beer Bars, where to drink beer and have fun at bargain prices, but also the so-called Lady Beer Bars , which in addition to beer “offer” even the girls who work inside them, and the Go-go bars, which we have already talked about for Bangkok and that guarantee economic, sensual and elegant lap dance.
As well as along Pattaya Beach, the best clubs in the city can be found on Walking Street, Soy Diamond and Pattayaland. If you are looking for sexy shows and “friendly” girls, the best clubs are Happy, Diamond and Super Models.
Nightlife in Phuket
Phuket also has a wild and bewitching nightlife. It is no coincidence that tourists choose this city for both the dream beaches and the wild nightlife. The clubs and discos are mainly concentrated in the Patong district, especially on Bangla Road.
Both on the street and on the premises it is very easy to come across very little dressed girls or girls in Thai who speak Italian who will try to take you to the premises or the hotel. Remember that nobody does anything for free and that most likely they are escorts. If you are interested in the genre well, otherwise make sure you are bringing a girl to the hotel and not a very feminine guy. If you want to dance and let loose to the rhythm of disco music you can bet on another very social area, Karon beach.
One last tip for those who want to stay away from the more touristy areas: go to Phuket town, where you will find the Climax and the Spark Club on Ratsada Road. Here you will find mostly Thais and healthy fun similar to what you find in Italian cities. Keep reading The Ring of Kerry: a wonderful route through green Ireland
