The sex tourism that goes alongside the Bangkok red light districts is a day to day occurrence that is simply a part of life in the Thai capital. In fact, sex tourism has been part of life in Thailand since the days of Siam as far back at over years ago. Thanks to the power and wealth of Siam those passing through and trading were keen to participate in the legalized and also taxed brothels in the larger centers. But, with that act, the legalities focused on criminalizing prostitution and trafficking involving children with only a slight and occasional intervention by police when it came to sex tourism.
These areas are bright lights, loud music and flaunting girls. There are 4 main areas in Bangkok that make up the red light districts. These are well known areas of the city that are incredibly visible and well known to residents. Because of this, the well-kept premises are closely watched by the government and are closely monitored for sex trafficking, forced workers and ethical violations.
This is, effectively, a regulated sex tourism area. Most of the workers are generally women who have headed for the bright lights of Bangkok from poorer, rural areas in order to find regular and steady work. Especially with the lower levels of education found in rural areas. Patpong has been popular as a sex tourism district since the days of the Vietnam War, and likely before! There are two main streets within the Patpong area, aptly named Soi Patpong 1 and 2. The three floors are home to a huge range of different go-go bars and also ladyboy bars.
Casanova is fairly relaxed, Angel Witch is a rock themed massive club, Billboard Agogo is frenetic and mad with a rotating podium and jacuzzi too! Not interested in going into one of the bars? Then just hang out on the ground floor amongst the open bars in the open-air.
You can kick back with a cold beer, watch sports and just watch the world go by. Soi Cowboy has been in existence for roughly the same amount of time as Nana Plaza. Named after the cowboy hat wearing man who opened it in the s, Soi Cowboy looks like a neon factory has exploded and thrown itself all over the street. Expect live music, lots of attention if you sit down and a whole lot of drinks. The newest comer to the red light districts of Bangkok, Soi Twilight is the local gay nightlife scene.
Our advice? Avoid those like the plague. This is payable to their Mamasan and then they can leave and go into the night with their guest. That price varies hugely from a few hundred to many thousand baht. It completely depends on your taste and, well, interests?! Generally, a visit to them is an experience at the very least, even if you just get some friends together and go wandering and people watching. Just remember, avoid the ping pong scams the street sellers will try and get you into.
