One of the world’s most famous red-light districts, Patpong is where it all started (Thailand’s Go-Go culture). It has even been immortalised in a James Bond chase-sequence. Its two parallel side-streets, found between Silom and Surawongse Roads, house around 100 neon-lit strip bars offering naughty shows and the famous pole-dancing entertainment.
Patpong has long since been usurped as the ‘king of the scene’ by Soi Cowboy, its counterpart around Sukhumvit. However, its reputation means it’s still a huge attraction, mainly for sightseers more interested in ogling at – rather than indulging in – the carnal delights on offer. But while for men Patpong is likely to mean ‘adult’, for women Patpong definitely means ‘night market’. At night this teems with hawkers and humble stalls selling what is mostly tourist tat.
