Nightlife in Bangkok Thailand

As you would expect of Thailand's premier city - the capital - night life abounds in many areas of Bangkok. In fact, most areas of Bangkok can boast of some form or other of night life.

'Nightlife' means many things to many people.

Bangkok is blessed with such a wide range of things to do at night, that there is something - every night - for most people.

The club and bar scene in Bangkok nightlife is conveniently situated in three main areas – being Silom, Sukhumvit and Khao San Road.

This is not to say that the rest of the city is a no-go, but simply a useful guide on where to go until you get yourself acquainted to Bangkok and all it has to offer.

Classical culture, jazz, Rock, Eating, Boat trips, Sex Haunts, Bars and clubs are all part of the attraction of this great city.

The river scene in particular is a great evening out if you are simply after sightseeing and a decent meal. Try it afloat on one of the River Boat restaurants.

It makes for a very relaxing way to see much of Bangkok with the added romance of a boat down the river.

With the way that Pattaya - and Bangkok - are changing, some would argue that there is better bar and girlie nightlife in Bangkok. You can decide!

Many areas are famous. Others you may need to seek out. Whichever, there are many things to see and do as the sun goes down.

Welcome to Bangkok night life.

Khao San Road: Was - and still is - the main place for backpackers. Useful for many things by day, but a great atmospheric nightspot - well lit up with informative neon signs.

Silom Road: Great for a whole range of entertainment in the heart of the commercial centre (during the day). It casts off its business cloak for an evening of good, varied entertainment and matching eateries.

Sukhumvit Road: Is a mixture of everything with Lady-boys aplenty thrown into the mix. Most will find something to their liking here - from seediness through to cultural delights.
