Patpong Go Go Bars
Since the days of the Vietnam era Patpong has long held the bragging rights as the best go go bar district in Bangkok.
Today its reputation has wavered a bit amongst the rapid commercialization spreading throughout the Silom District.
However, Patpong's go go bars are still a raw front for prostitution and now matter how many markets and commercial brand named stores open up in the area, the sale of sex will still be the top money maker and attraction for male tourists.
All go go bars are located in Patpong Soi 1 and Patpong Soi 2. As mentioned earlier, your best chances of finding attractive bar girls or ladyboys are in a group of bars called King's and Queen's name in it. They are a name that is well established in Patpong to the point they are almost an institution.
Keep in mind only King's Castle 3 features an all ladyboy cast of bar girls. And the ladyboys inside do quote higher prices.
On Patpong Soi 2 you will find a handful of newer bars that are worth checking out too. And they too have a fair share of attractive bar girls, giving the bars on the opposite end a run for the money. Bada Bing and Black Pagoda are some serious competitors in Patpong's go go bar arena.
There are also a few alternatives types of bars. The first are a set of popular blow job bars also located in Soi 2, Star of Love and Mike's Place. Both bars charge about 800THB for a blow job and you can short time the girls as as well for around 1500THB to 2000THB.
Sex Shows in Patpong
It's best to avoid going to a sex show in Patpong. Not unless you have a lot of money and are not worried about getting ripped off.
Sex show bars or establishments are usually on the second floors along Patpong Soi 1 and a few places on Soi 2. Don't worry about finding a sex show bar because there are plenty of touts standing around carrying small menus just like the one you see on the right. Trust me they'll find you.
Essentially these are bars with way overpriced drinks that seem cheap at first. So if a tout tells you a beer cost 100THB you might as well double that amount.
And they'll say that the show is free to watch might also be a lie as you'll only ending up finding out when the hand you the bill when you leave.
But as I mentioned earlier if you have the extra cash to blow and don't mind paying extras you might as well take a look see and find out what the fuss is all about. You'd either enjoy Thai bar girls shooting ping pong balls and pulling razors out of their vaginas or run to the bathroom puking.
