No other city in
Asia rivals Bangkok for a thrilling nightlife. Evening entertainment is
also both plentiful and inexpensive. Most famous are the neon-lit bar
districts (Bangkok's Pat Pong - the Suranwongse Road and Silom Road area
- is the obvious haven for those seeking a good time), which are both
more fun and much safer than their counterparts in other cities around
the world. In fact, a visit to Pat Pong has become just another stop on
the tourist circuit with some local firms offering all-inclusive night
tours to the area, which has massage parlors, go-go bars and erotic shows
all thrown in.
If it is action you
are looking for, Bangkok and others like Pattaya abound with discos. Some
are small and intimate while others enormous and crowded, but all spin
the latest dance music using the most modern sound systems, laser lights,
videos, and all other hi-tech equipment that makes today's disco less
of a place and more of an experience.
For either pre-evening
aperitifs or late evening drinks, Bangkok boasts of many sophisticated
bars and cocktail lounges, some of the best being located in the top hotels.
Here, one can relax in pleasant surroundings and enjoy live musical entertainment
by the best local and regional entertainers.
