Pattaya nightlife is world-famous and it’s fair to say that the city comes alive after dark. The cities renowned Walking Street is packed full with clubs, nightclubs, go-go bars, massage parlours, as well as various other inconspicuous venues which are all lit up with neon lights. Walking Street is at the southern end of Beach Road. Its often easier to walk to the area than use a taxi because the roads at times can get congested.
Every evening Walking Street is made pedestrianised after 6.30pm. A visit to this part of Thailand wouldn’t be complete without experiencing this world famous street – a huge part of the Pattaya nightlife scene. This mile long stretch of what can only be described as well organised chaos in South Pattaya, is unlike any other city in Thailand and lives up to its name as party central on the countries eastern coastline. Officially all the bars and clubs on Walking Street should close at 2 am at the latest, however, you may find the odd venue staying open a little later.
Beyond Walking Street
Of course, Pattaya nightlife compromises of much more than just Walking Street. There are various other areas within the city, each offering sometime slightly different from the next. Some parts of Pattaya are cheaper than others when it comes to drinks, food and entertainment – Soi 7 and Soi 8 being two of the most inexpensive areas. These lively Sois are mainly a cluster of beer bars serving cheap drinks, including all your favourites. There are some good go-go bars in Soi 7 & 8 too. If you like people watching then this area has plenty going on and will keep you entertained around the clock. In the morning, there are places that serve breakfast – perfect if you’ve been up all night partying. For those who like to start the day early and get in a warm-up session, there are plenty of bars and pubs to choose from that open in the afternoon. With plenty of hotels, shops and bars in the area, you’ll never have to walk too far to get home after you’ve experienced some Pattaya nightlife.
If it’s ladyboy bars you are after then head over to Soi 6/1 and Soi 13/1 where you’ll find late night shows that will keep you entertained for a few hours. Pattaya nightlife also consists of a huge gay scene which is more commonly witnessed in Pattayaland and Boyztown; this area is full with gay bars and clubs. The majority of dancers at these bars and clubs are male, but there are a few female go-go bars in Pattayaland too, along with a selection of restaurants, hotels and shops. There really is a street for everyone in Pattaya, no matter your sexuality, gender or interest.
