avoid this place at all cost its nothing but a tourist trap marketed to old white divorced men over the age of 50. almost every place on the strech is filled with agressive ladyboys and even more agressive mamasans! avoid this completely!!

Honestly, you probably already know what this place is. Basically a bunch of go-go bars which in the end really offer you little in the way of thrills. The girls are much more fun down at Nana plaza than here.

The street offers some bars and the girls are trying to bring you into the bars offering different shows. A Must to see but you don’t need to go into a bar.

Usual gaudy lights, lots of noise, bikini-clad girls. Invented for American G.I's during the Vietnam war as a "recreational area". Next door to the Asoke BTS station. I suppose that you need to walk down this Soi once if you are inquisitive.

Go out, enjoy a drink and watch any of the shows at Soi Cowboy - fun guaranteed. Make sure you leave around midnight, as the mood might change slightly

Right across the street from Terminal 21, a short alley packed with gogo bars, live music, etc. Typical 'red light' Bangkok at its finest. I would say that Nana plaza is probably a bit better for people watching if you sit at one of the...More

Sukhumvit
With a mix of shopping malls, hip bars and food stalls
lining both sides of Thailand’s longest road, you’ll
rarely encounter a dull moment along Sukhumvit. While
the main road itself doesn't offer a lot in terms of
entertainment, it's the adjoining 'sois' (alleys)
where the magic happens. Popular spots are soi 11 for
a lively night out, soi 4 for naughty nightlife and
soi 21 for world-class shopping at Terminal 21. It's

I have received a few private messages from people wanting to ask questions and stay anonymous. First of all, for some foreigners they might think the prices for drinks is reasonable but that is because they are comparing prices to their homeland... prices in Soi Cowboy is definitely higher than most other places in Thailand. For the guy that is more than adventurous and decides to take 2 girls to his room...be careful. Common stories include guys lieing on the bed with one girl while the other says she needs to go to the bathroom and instead is actually crawling on the floor and going thru your pants pockets. My last comment is that guys should NEVER leave their drink unattended, such as while going the bathroom...you can come back and not know your drink has an extra additive and by the time u take the girl to your room ...well you can barely stand up and when u wake up, well...you lost the wallet, money, camera, computer and anything else and that is why it is important to never be a big shot thinking your lady friend should not register before going to your room...If she registers then they have her ID and she is less prone to do some trickery ...
