About
Stretching from Pattaya Beach Road to Bali Hai Plaza, Walking Street is the epicenter of Pattaya’s notorious red-light district, with pubs, nightclubs, and go-go bars galore. Experience the electric atmosphere, catch a free Muay Thai match, and enjoy the live bands and cabarets. When the sensory overload gets too much, take a breather at Pattaya Pier—an iconic landmark in the city. Food-wise, there are a plethora of stalls, casual eateries, and restaurants that stay open to accommodate late-night revelers. Stay safe, and if you feel uncomfortable, look for tourist police stationed in the area. – Tripadvisor

    A crazy place
    Its a crazy place, we were there early in the evening but there was so much going on. Music and loud sounds everywhere. Pretty girls trying to persuade you to go into their bars. Guys looking for girls and lots of tourists. There were kick boxers, street performers, bars, reasonably priced food chaos but great fun. A woman kept trying to persuade us to go the the Ping Pong Bar. Eventually we went but it was horrible and I dont recommend it. I can't go into details here. Apart from that we had a great time and I recommend Walking Street for tourists and of course for men looking for female company.

    Mixed experience
    If only girls are going, go in a big group to enjoy the full experience. Be aware if you go into one of the sex clubs be prepared for you to enjoy the show less and but have your hand in your pocket as money will be extracted fromYou. One if the waiters had broken a glass and she went to the gentle man and said you have to pay for the glass. Walking street in general had a good vibe we went on a thursday night. Ended in one club which was good. Seems like pattaya is full of Indians and Russians.

    Disappointed
    Actually disappointed. Maybe our expectations were too high. Imagined the street to be even longer than what it was. Full of legal drug shops which gave it a bad vibe. A lot of the girls on the street were not at all very pretty to look at, and had many wierdos come up to us wanting to take us down back streets to watch live sex shows. We did end up scoring a great meal on the beachfront though. Wouldn't visit here again. Better party streets in the world.

    The overall consumption is not high, of course there are ways to make money. The power of words can no longer accurately express the openness, passion, etc. of this street. The 40-kilometer-long Beach has bright sunshine, blue sky, clear water, sand as white as silver, coconut palms and thatched pavilions, and small villas nestled among green leaves and red tiles. It has a unique oriental tropical scenery, which is refreshing and refreshing. It is a good seaside swimming spot.

The walking street was something of an assault on my senses. In a good way. I was not sure what to expect, but it was a street best for adults ready to party. Lots of adult clubs, loud music, bars, street vendors and lots of places to eat.

We had a good time, but apparently Thailand is still a place for racial discrimination. We wanted to go into a club. I am a Caucasian westerner, no problem. The Thai girls we were with, no problem. The Thai man in our group was turned away. We all left. It may be customary in Thailand and elsewhere, but I wasn't going to a club and treat my friend as an unwanted person.

This place needs no introduction. This place is famous (should I say, infamous) for it's naughty vibes. It's lined up with gentlemen clubs and is a sleaze fest at best. Visit at your own discretion.

It’s Pattaya and the Walking Street needs no explanation, so for all the people writing negative reviews, what did you hope it would be like?
Pattaya as many know it, was formed by American soldiers on leave during the Vietnam war and it still caters for the lonely man to this day.
So for all those writing bad reviews, Pattaya also has some great shopping malls, Buddhist temples, massage, Thai boxing and a long beach so if your not wanting to witness the sleaze, you don’t have too as there is much more on offer. But if you are visiting the red light walking street and writing negatively about, what did you expect, fine dining and wine tasting?

An hour is enough time to alot for this "must see" spot. For me it's a "been there, done that" and I have no reason to return spot. Definitely check it out at night...it's quite interesting!

Overrated nowadays

Unfortunately Walking Street is rum down and about the only people you see are hoards of Chinese and groups of Indians.

Not that I've got anything against them, but they just stand around spitting.

It's no longer for tourists.

I have a pretty high tolerance for sleaze, but Walking Street in Pattaya challenges my tolerance limits. Pattaya is probably the most sleazy city in the world, and Walking Street epitomizes the sleaze. It's still fun to walk the street and gawk at the craziness and chaos, but it's a little more intimidating than in the past. The street seems to have more unpleasant touts and thugs than in the past, many of them seemingly linked to Russian and Indian influences. And, there seems to be many girls younger than ever and so many that are frankly unattractive (how do they manage to make a living?). As always, caution is a necessary prerequisite for anyone randomly venturing into the street's many pubs; some are notorious for ripping of visitors with scams and intimidation.
