Bangla Rd is the center of the nighttime action with its long stretch of beer bars and pubs and side lanes leading down to more naughty spots.
The notorious Soi Katoey, just off Bangla, is a lively place where punters can watch super-sexy ‘ladies’ dancing on stages at the soi’s entrance and further inside. The other sois are amusing places to wander, with countless beer bars, a-go-gos and pubs to explore.
Fans of rugby, football and other pro sports worried about missing the big games will be relieved to hear that Patong has numerous sports pubs with satellite TV links to all the favourite European and international matches.
The myriad shopping outlets and open-air markets, bowling alleys, bookshops and cafes offer an alternative for those looking for quieter nighttime options.
