Partying in Bangkok is incomplete without a trip to Khao san road – a heady cocktail of lights, music and street dancing. There are countless pubs lining the streets, but the party mostly spills out onto the street. Khao san road also has some of the most lip-smacking street food available. If you want budget accommodation and meet new travelers, this is a great area to stay at.
Bangkok’s other party area is Sukhumvit with fancy beer bars, go- go bars and the famous Nana Plaza – the world’s largest adult entertainment complex. Bangkok also houses the famed red light districts of Patpong and Soi cowboy. So there is plenty of action to keep you hooked!

The poster boy of Thailand’s nightlife, no bachelor party in Thailand is complete without a trip to Pattaya. With its raunchy bars, discos, foam parties and the infamous adult entertainment industry, Pattaya gives you everything you ask for.
If you want to be at the heart of all the action, then we suggest staying in a 1 km radius of Walking Street – the craziest street in this part of the world. It’s every man’s fantasy come true.
It has all the happening clubs in Pattaya, not to mention it’s go-go bars, beer bars, massage parlors, strip clubs and ping pong shows. You are going to get lured in every club here – courtesy the cute bar girls at the door teasing you.
The foam party at the hard rock café is another epic party. The 2000 square meter pool here is pumped with foam and young men and women frolic in them all night. So get wet and go wild at the HRC foam party which starts at 9.30 p.m. every Saturday.
