Soi Cowboy, Bangkok

2.5
#4 of 9 in Neighborhoods in Bangkok
Neighborhood Tourist Spot
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.

Where to stay in Bangkok

As a commercial, cultural, and tourist center, Bangkok offers a great diversity of accommodations. For long established and chain hotels, try Sukhumvit Road and the areas surrounding the central Siam Square, where budget and luxury rooms are available in abundance. If you are looking for the backpacker zone, head to Khaosan Road, where you'll find a wealth of inexpensive, simple accommodations surrounded by businesses tailored to traveler's needs. Consider staying at a guesthouse to gain a deeper understanding of Thai life.
