A night at Thaniya Plaza with beautiful Thai Girls 
Patpong is probably "the mother of all Girly Bars" in Thailand
Many new nightlife spots and red light districts came up in Bangkok since the US GI's left but at Patpong almost nothing changed.

Maybe the only change is that most operation and acteurs have been taken over by ladyboys and that poisoned the athmosphere since they are much more agressive than the girls and difficult to handle. 

This street links Silom and Surawong and is probably "the mother of all Thailand nightlife". During daytime a sleepy Soi with some shops comes to life at around 8 pm. Shortly after the sun is gone the hawker pull up their flimsy stalls they are stacked together by small pipes and all kinds of goods are placed or hanged onto the desk or walls of  the mobile shop.

All material to pull up this flimpy shops and the goods for sale are usually parked in a big locked box on wheels in one of the side alleys off Sukhumvit and Surawong Road.

in the evening its pulled to the marked place in the middle of the road. Most of the goods for sale they buy at the Chatuchak weekend market.

After the first go-go bars open and they start dancing around 9 pm. Slowly the girls come in by the "skytrain", the subway, via motorbike, bus or the friend drops her. If they own a car means she must be quite an attractive lady. They come from the cheap living areas like Din Daeng in the north and other places.If you come by aircraft or maybe with the bus and want to explore all this take a hotel in the Surawong and Silom area , hotels are from Baht 1200,- upwards per night, taking the lady with you means Baht 500,- extra. This way you have all the places within walking distance a similar situation is at Nana Plaza.

Although there are people out there who tell about "quality fake" (tripadviser) the fact is there are no quality fake this is almost all
this flimsy junk which breaks after a few days.  Be aware that sites like tripadviser mainly just copy all kind of things from the internet and for the rest they let user who have no big idea about the subject write. Which means they are often useless. There is only minimum research on location.
This red light district is close to the elevated train station at Sala Daeng, Silom and is just the right place to go for discovery. The name somehow sounds like... ping pong.. this is exactly what it describes. I guess this two word are one of the most used around here, why? Guess and don't forget the banana. Here is not only the prototype of entertainment in the country, there is also a real interesting night market and plenty of street food stalls.
Patong Bar Girls

Patpong girls are plenty and the famous go-go bars line the street, basically they all offer the same beer girls and music.

Sometimes when they bring a great Thai pop song girls start singing. How it looks inside a go go bar you can see here.

All bars on the street level are more or less ok, if you have a  problem it wont matter what kind tell it to the "mama san" and to the manager, they will handle it somehow positive.

At the first floor girls performing some kind of show like putting a banana in and catapult the fruit out. As you can see here you can get also other services beside of the bars and shopping.

Some tattoo shops do a good business during the night. They deliver excellent tattoo art for a fraction of the price you must pay in the EU, US or elsewhere.

Thailand tattoo  artists know their job as well as the guys in the West, the also use the same tools and the same hygienic procedures as elsewhere.

Patpong bars

The bars and nightclubs offers some of the most bizarre night activities in the world. Around are several more markets notably at Silom Road.

Massage is also available to make your night an attraction, just look at the pictures here and the videos. There are also cheap hotels and apartments around, guess for what. In this city you can find almost everything related to great nightlife either for male or female. Is that unique? no, because there are similar places at Pattaya, Phuket and Chiang Mai, Hat Yai, Sadao, Hua Hin etc. it can be really hot.

In general a lot of excitement is hidden, discover it.

After the second floor level the cheating starts, the advice is, never enter a place above the second floor, you will be cheated. If you have a real problem go to one of the mobile police stations at both ends of the street, the tourist police is there in a van to help you, if they try to brush it off insist on it and they will help you to solve any problem usually they try to help since they know this very well, they have the complains every day, anyway enjoy the go-go girls.

More murky it becomes when you take the stairs to the upper floors of the house to have a look for sexy show girls. There is a show here and there with girls wearing nothing and do funny games of the sort of inserting a banana between the legs and pushing it out, interestingly the banana flies about 2 - 3 meter and usually lands on one of the foreign tourists who watch the show, they start screaming of fun. Not all tourists watching there are male, there are also plenty of female tourists watching a show and everyone has a good time. Also the ladies usually have a great evening and some income
Another strange performance in a show is to put a cigarette between the legs and smoke it, actually the strange thing is it really works. When the cigarette is done the people applaud. The same is Hat Yai and Sadao in the south of Thailand. Its fun for the tourists and cash for Thai people, finally everyone is happy and had a enjoyable evening at Patong bars.

Expression everyone hears many time around , I guess you can imaging yourself what it means and the funny thing is, it exactly describes this place in the hearth of the city. When you walk along the street there is always someone approaching you asking if you like to watch a show of this sort, actually until a few years ago they just did it at the stage, it was sometimes difficult for the guys to get him up because of all the people around watching.

From time to time one guy from the audience jumped onto the stage, actually the stage is like a boxing ring and got it done, the audience screamed with joy and when the business was done applause was plenty. This days (2017) they don't do this anymore because when caught the police close down the bar.
Actually in general never enter a bar on a higher level as the second floor, because that's usually were the criminals operate with all kind of dirty tricks to cheat the people and extort money. If ever something like this happen go to the Silom end of the street, there is always a minibus with police people who also speak English, don't be shy they will go with you back to the bar and help. Unfortunately there are many crooks in the nightlife business, not only here, who try all kind of criminal activities to pull money, by the way, never carry money in the shirt pocket !  Many people just come for shopping, its a great place for a bargain hunter but it needs tough negotiations since they try to cheat you real badly, but you have to go through it.

Need a Patpong Hotel?

In the vicinity are plenty of hotels for every budget, most are not bad, offering everything one necessary, some even a bath tub, real hot water and some foreign news channels in the TV, but with the English channels it's usual a problem, even simple ones like BBC and CNN. It's probably a matter of cost's because one company has a de facto monopole on foreign language channels and the use this to squeeze the clients.

From the low budget accommodation to the up market houses its all there and if you have more money to burn use one of the luxury establishments. There are also plenty of ladyboys at Kings Corner bar and elsewhere plus some disco, restaurant, street food and a chaotic life everywhere, enjoy shopping in the center of the road. Some shops make real strange things available at the roadside such as this one here, they catering to the ladyboys who pass by because at the other side of the alley a special tv bar. This Asian tv's are around everywhere, they are somehow integrated in society but it is still a strange adventure to deal with them because this persons are totally different in terms behavior and emotional. The funny thing is, every year there are plenty of western guys who come here to have fun with them, here is one of the major places, the other two are at Phuket and Pattaya.

In 2012 they formed a new airline (but quickly buried it) where the boss told the media he will only employ them at in-flight service which according to my experience with Thai International who also have a lot of them wont work because they are emotionally instable and are not able to keep discipline where it must be like in an aircraft.

Find any obsessions there? No wonder hundreds of pretty girls who try to make you happy wait for you; the only thing needed is a little present (called “kanom” in Thai) in form of some money. This is a hot city by any means and here its sizzling with young and beautiful ladies. The city has several other areas dedicated to the nightlife business with clubs, bars, pubs, discos, street food and other variants. The most prominent are Nana Plaza, Soi Cowboy, Thaniya Plaza and at Sukhumvit and Ratchadapisek.

At Phuket its Bangla Road with plenty of clubs and café’s, at Pattaya its “walking street" . That’s not all, similar places are in every big city such as Chiang Mai, Phitsanulok, Loei and so on. If you like enjoying a good time you are at the right place.

Almost all entertainment spots are low priced, another attraction are massage shops of any type, that includes the special Thai massage for the guys. Don’t expect any sophisticated or particular stylish places, the idea is simple, drink some beers, have a good time and go shopping.
Patpong Night Market
Patpong Shopping Photos
Around 6 pm Patpong Road 1 get blocked and after about an hour the stalls are up. Most goods for sale is bought at the Chatuchak weekend market. 

At about 8 pm the first go-go and coyote bars open girls move in by the Skytrain the sub way motorbike bus or just walk everything is within walking distance and the other spots such as Nana Plaza and Soi Cowboy can easily be reach by the BTS Skytrain.

Girls are plenty and the famous night market is open every day, actually if you are not after the Thai bar girls a visit to this place is already a good idea because of interesting shopping.

A other show is to hang balloons on the corner of the stage, take a blowpipe, put it into the va... push a small arrow into the blowpipe and stimulate the va.. to emit air, take a big breath and have the arrows bang up the balloons. There are some more strange shows performed at but I cant tell this here.

But don't think that this is somehow inappropriate, the people applaud and appreciate the performance since it is definitely not easy to do this, I would say its more difficult than go into office in the morning and try to manage bookkeeping on the computer. To so called "western gutmenschen and know everything better anyway" it needs to be said, nobody need you, you draw you legitimating only from your  arrogant ego to take control of you like it is in all this NGO and UN who make money with it to blame all others.

The ladies just do their job they get paid for. The "do gooder" who sit around in Thailand, Myanmar, Cambodia and Laos receiving 4 and 5 digit salaries paid by western taxpayers live from blaming the native people of all kind of nonsense. Means they make money by blaming the poor. If they wont always construct new nonsense on all kind of issues they would loose their jobs they maintain on the back of the poor Asian people.

This is a concentrated cheat, they live a very good live from this. A much better live than the people they claim to protect and help with this funds. This is nothing but a awful scam on the back of the poor who earn about 200 -300 $ a month, you see the difference to the 4-5 digits ?
