Soi Cowboy, Bangkok

(2.4/5 based on 750+ reviews on the web)
See the bright lights and Go-Go Bars of neon-drenched Soi Cowboy, one of Bangkok's most popular late-night haunts among tourists and expats. The short strip features about 40 bars and Go-Go bars, where scantily clad dancers entertain their clientele, so think twice about bringing children. Nightlife columnist Bernard Trink named the street Cowboy after T.G. "Cowboy" Edwards, a retired American airman who opened one of the first bars there in 1977. The nickname comes from the cowboy hat he often wore. Make Soi Cowboy a centerpiece of your Bangkok vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Bangkok trip builder.

  • 整条街都是在揽客和跳艳舞的女孩以及人妖,以及各种肤色的男人,这条街甚至是这附近都不适合情侣以及家庭,特别是小孩,不理解为什么有人会觉得在这里是令人放松的,所有事物都愚昧,并且不干净。
