Soi Cowboy

Soi Cowboy bangkok.1.3

After eating and drinking, it is time to learn a little about night life in this most bustling city in Southeast Asia. Soi Cowboy is known as the “red light district” in Thailand with a row of bars shining brightly. Bangkok’s nightlife is somewhat special because these are not ordinary bars but that are famous for Go Go Bars, (striptease bar and the performers are ladyboys).

Walking around Soi Cowboy once and you will somehow understand the concept of ladyboy in Thailand. And you will find the scene here very familiar because it has appeared in the cult movie Hollywood Hangover 2.

This is probably a great way to close the one-day journey in Bangkok. You have seen a Bangkok as the most modern city in Southeast Asia, a Bangkok still keeping sacred palaces, temples and a different view of Bangkok at night – an open place for gay and transgender people. To find out the colors of Bangkok in 1 day is quite difficult, but hope you have the most comprehensive view of the characteristics of the Thai capital.
