Soi Cowboy Entertainment
Soi Cowboy is one of the best known designated entertainment night life districts in Bangkok. It is also one of Bangkok's most visited tourists attractions. It is a short street, approximately 150 metres long, with some 40, mostly go-go, bars, and is (technically) closed to traffic at night.   Similar to Nana Plaza and Patpong. It caters mainly to tourists and expatriates.

Soi Cowboy runs immediately behind Sukhumvit Road and is located between Sukhumvit Soi 23 and Asoke Road (Sukhumvit Soi 21) Map. It is one of Bangkok's favourite late night entertainment centres in the heart of Bangkok.

The soi was given its name by longtime nightlife columnist Bernard Trink, after the late T. G. "Cowboy" Edwards, a retired American airman who opened one of the first bars there in 1977. Edwards got his nickname because he often wore a cowboy hat.

When Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra was elected in 2001, his government instituted a "social order" campaign. As part of this, all bars, nightclubs and restaurants had to close by 02:00, later changed to 01:00 for all areas not officially designated as "entertainment zones". (Unlike Patpong, Soi Cowboy and Nana Plaza were not so designated). A mandatory midnight closing time was even discussed.
Over the years this policy has eased, and some Soi Cowboy bars stay open as late as 02:00.

Soi length: approx 400mtrs

Tripadvisor comment  

Yes, this is one of the most famous "red light" districts in Bangkok - all of Thailand for that matter! It's only one block long, but it is solid bars, all with girls trying to get you to come in. If you are a girl/woman or a man with his wife - don't be shy. Go there and have a look as you will find it very interesting and you'll be glad you included this in your Thailand experience. You can take a taxi or tuk-tuk there as they all know the name, but for me I took the BTS (Skytrain) to the Sukhumvit station and walked about 5 minutes to get there.  June 2015
