Bangla road only comes to life when Sun sets. It is a 400m long party heaven, full of bars, pubs, discos, restaurants and small shops where you can buy souvenirs and dresses. The road is closed to motor vehicles.
Bangla road transforms into a big open bar, full of neon lights, beautiful dancing girls, loud music, flashy shops and cheap beer. Almost all bars and pub are open so music from each of them create a great fusion!
There is also a 7eleven store, if you want to buy and drink on your own. You may even head to Patong beach with your own beer.
Street performers adds to the charm to this place. You can find guys doing hip hop shows and ladies doing samba. Touts offering a ticket to ping pong show may be disturbing but everyone is competing to do good business so can’t really complain.
Hip Hop dance performance
You may even light up a few lanterns on Patong Beach
Best time to arrive is after 10-11PM when parties start taking shape and music becomes loud.
Bangla Road is a perfect destination for party animals and is quite safe and non-threatening. I saw few police men patrolling the area as well.
Just be careful, you never know the beautiful chick you smiled at may be a guy 😉
