Soi Cowboy got its name in honor of the first men opening a bar in the area. An African American wearing a cowboy hat.
This red light district in Bangkok has a nice atmosphere, diferent from similar places around in Thailand.Full of lights and with lots of hustle and bustle, it is full of bars. Although the preconception, soi Cowboy might be a relaxed place, ideal to go drinking a chang with friends while visiting a peculiar and unique place in the world.
It’s not worth being uncomfortable since there, although there is a sex industry, people are not invasive and, it could be said, most of those who go there just go for a bit of fun in an unusual context.
Location: 100 meters from Sukhumvit Road, between Asoke road and Sukhmvit Soi 23. The nearest skytrain station is Asoke and Sukhumvit metro station.
