Quite obvious for all to see, this is the place to party in Patong. Lined with bars, clubs, ping pong shows etc it was busy each night we visited. Not a great deal more to add. Full of prostituting and drug selling but not too in your face.

By day it's it's about shopping and food.............by night, it's an experience!! There is something for everyone, from the bars/nightclubs, more shopping.......to the shows.........saw some freaked out expressions from some (lol) but the atmosphere was that everyone was having a great time!!

Every impossible things can be happened here in Bangla Road, Patong, Phuket. As I said, it is one of the best and craziest nightlife of the world. There are bars, night clubs, discos, live musics, shows etc. everything is there to enjoy at one's fullest. A must visit place for lifetime experience for everyone.

I would choose to have the bar scene and ping pong shows for Bangkok. The islands in Thailand should be for the more calm activity - at least from my views. Nevertheless, if you are looking for these kind of things - then you will definitely find it all here - in this closed road - which is blocked from... More

When we first started to holiday in Patong in the mid nineties Bangla Road was as it is now a busy road by day and a party street by night what has changed is that it has become party central to hundreds of of tourists and has on display all the bazaar behaviour that that brings. Perhaps we are getting... More

Bangla road has bright lights and lots of bustle right near the beach. You will be accosted by many dudes selling ping pong shows and posdibly cocaine.. but I was just happy to wander and stop occasionally for a Leo beer here and there. Its crazy busy and closed to cars during the night so take your time and have... More

The walking street of Phuket. Ideal when traveling with friends. Just be aware of getting conned by Go Go Bar girls in name of drinks. Rest, enjoy the place. Explore the pole dances. They don't charge anything for watching and won't force you for anything unless you are interested. Overall, Great Fun for adults only.
