Nice entertainment inside soi cowboy it's a shame that some of the bars are more expensive than others be sure of the prices before you commit.

The best part of Soi cowboy is the corner bar. Great bands and not stitched up like everywhere else in cowboy. The worst of the lot is crazy house on the outside in soi23. Went there two nights ago. Many young felines running around. Ordered...More

I have seen many Europeans (Farangs) here of different generations and wonder what is their thoughts at first sight. It really is "in your face" so don't be surprised if you were expecting a wild west rodeo show.

Many people say Soi Cowboy is a pale reflection of itself in years gone by. I don't know about that, but I do know it's a fun way to pass a night in Bangkok. Nana Plaza, if anything, can get too busy which for my...More

One of Bangkok's more famous red light districts. It's only about 250m of gogo bars, but they offer a delightful array of fine Thai "entertainers". And if you're worried about bad lighting or cosmetics creating a rift between what you think you're "bar fining" and...More

Went to Soi Cowboy a couple of times during our 4 day stay in Bangkok! Lovely bars and some live music! Central to where we were staying at The Dream Hotel!

Would not even send my enemies here, too cheapo and vulgar. It's located behind the Pullman Hotel. I rather have cocktails and drinks at the Pullman Hotel Bar than venturing in cheap street full of uneducated Thai prostitutes.

Yes this place is seedy as he'll but the entertainment, if nothing else, is an eye opener. My favourite place is the Corner bar (situated appropriately in soi cowboy by name). The band's are highly talented mostly and even have a masseuse at toilets to...More

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 ...
