Nightlife spots in Bangkok

1. Bask in the Neon at Soi Cowboy

Well known among both expats and visitors, Soi Cowboy is one of the city’s more notorious nightspots. A street 50 metres long lined with Neon-fronted bars on either side, Soi Cowboy is jam-packed with revellers and local girls beckoning them to come inside.

Although the Soi is renowned for the more decadent pleasures Bangkok nightlife has to offer, you could simply choose to sit and drink with your host and chat as the world goes by. Thais just love to party and a night out can be a great way to get to know your host better. As an experience to all of your senses, a visit to Soi Cowboy should be near the top of any partying adult’s list.

2. Dance the Night Away at RCA

An area thronging with trendy bars and nightclubs, Royal City Avenue is popular among the younger locals and makes for a great night out. If you are looking for Bangkok nightlife with great music to dance to all night, RCA could be just the ticket.

Your host will be able to let you know which of the DJ’s are the best, and which clubs you should spend your night in. Having a local guide with you also makes it easier to meet the other locals meaning you could end up making new friends. If you are looking for a night out with a younger, trendy clientele, then be sure to put RCA on your list.

3. Eat, drink and be merry on Lower Sukhumvit

The lower Sukhumvit area is home to many of the city’s 5 star hotels and it is here that you will also find many of the western style pubs, restaurants and clubs. The area is busy most nights with locals, expats and visitors and, typical to Bangkok nightlife, the partying often continues until the sun comes up.

Your local host will know the best spots whether you are looking for something to eat, some live music, somewhere to dance all night or just a place to sit and talk. You will also pass many street vendors as you move from venue to venue so you get a chance to do some shopping as well.

4. Take in a Show at a Cabaret

Thailand is well known for its liberal transgender scene, and you will find that some of the them love to put on a show. They really know how to do that and you will be treated to an evening of song, dance and extravagance, that will keep you enthralled.

Ask your local host which shows are the best and you are guaranteed to have an experience you will never forget. Also ask your private guide which shows are in the best areas for Bangkok nightlife in general, as you would likely want to continue your evening once the show has finished.

5. Blast out Some Songs at a Karaoke Venue

Karaoke is an important part of Bangkok nightlife for the locals and you will find that there is no shortage of karaoke venues. Most Karaoke venues will have some western classics for you to sing, although you could even try joining in with some Thai favourites, if you feel up to the challenge. It’s one of the most fun things to do in Bangkok.

Ask your host about Karaoke venues and they will able to recommend several to you, and you can be sure that they will want to come along. Even if you are not brave enough to pick up the mic yourself, a karaoke venue still make for a great night out and you might even find the courage to give it a go yourself after a few drinks.

Marina Tuangtip

A customized trip with Tuangtip

Wir waren nur 3 Tage in Bangkok als Zwischenstop und wollten so viel wie möglich sehen. Also haben wir Tuangtip eine Liste mit ALLEM geschickt was wir sehenswert fanden.
Sie hat uns alles in individuelle Touren gepackt. Und was sollen wir sagen; WOW!! Es war
einfach traumhaft. Wir haben mehr erlebt als wir uns überhaupt vorstellen konnten; Tempel (wir wurden von einem Mönch gesegnet), Blumenmärkte, Essensmärkte, Bootsfahrten, TukTuk-Fahrten und vieles mehr, einfach alles war dabei. Tuangtip hat uns alles erklärt, die Geschichte, die Hintergründe, die Verhaltensregeln und natürlich die Esskultur. Wir haben gefühlt alles probiert, da wir dank ihr wussten was sich hinter einem eingewickelten Bananenblatt verbirgt ;-) Sie hat geduldig gewartet wenn wir uns in kleinen Läden oder auf dem Markt etwas anschauen oder kaufen wollten. Sie hat alle Fahrten perfekt organisiert, nirgends gab es Wartezeiten oder Unklarheiten. Wir haben viel gesehen, viel gelernt und noch mehr gelacht. Wir können in diesen kurzen Zeilen gar nicht wiedergeben wie wunderbar es war. Es waren die besten 3 Tage die wir uns wünschen konnten in Bankgkok.
Vielen Dank Tuangtip, wir werden die Zeit dank Dir nie vergessen!!

Veron Nonglak

A customized trip with Nonglak

I had an amazing time with Nonglak who accommodated to my unusual request to visit this part of Bangkok. It was an eye-opener & I enjoyed every minute of it. Nonglak patiently explained the ways of the people & bridged the gap between them & myself. I will remember this trip for a long time. Thank you Nonglak!

Jimmy Artty

A customized trip with Artty

We did the Ayutthaya Tour with Artty and was probably the highlight of our trip. Artty was full of energy and had a lot of Knowledge with the history behind Ayutthaya and Thai culture all round! Shared lots of laughs and moments that we would never forget. Id recommend Artty on any tour that he is available for.
