If you have never heard of Soi Cowboy then you have never been to Bangkok. Soi Cowboy is a short road in the Asoke area where you will find all the girly bars in Bangkok. The street is normally packed at night with bright lights and scantly clad women walking around. Safe to say it is not a tourist area to take the children with.
The name Soi Cowboy was started by an American write for the Bangkok Post called Bernard Trink. His weekly newspaper column was critical of the area and other nightlife in Thailand. The name was after the late T. G. “Cowboy” Edwards, a retired American airman who opened one of the first bars there in 1977 and who always wore a cowboy hat.
The Soi has been used in many movies such as Bangkok Dangerous and also the movie The Hangover Part 2. The area is where the BTS (Skytrain) and MRT (Subway system) cross over in Bangkok. There is the BTS Asok Station and the MRT Sukhumvit Station in Bangkok. There are a number of high-end hotels in this are such as the InterContinental Bangkok as well as the Ambassador Hotel Bangkok and the Adelphi Suites Hotel.
Embark on a journey to Soi Cowboy and revel in its offerings. This street has gained renown for its vibrant and lively nightlife scene, featuring bars that remain open well into the late hours.
However, it’s important to bear in mind that this experience might require a considerable amount of funds. If your travels lead you to Thailand, and Bangkok is a part of your itinerary. Then exploring this area should not be overlooked. You might also consider bringing a friend along. Especially if your intention is to enjoy a drink at one of the bars during the evening hours.
My personal experience was absolutely delightful. I was enamored by the dazzling lights, the enchanting ambiance, and the infectious vibes that permeate the street. Live music, engaging agogo bars, and excellent dining options contributed to the overall allure. Throughout my stay in Bangkok, I made it a point to visit every night, and each time was a thoroughly enjoyable experience. Despite the street’s relatively small size. The atmosphere is undoubtedly that of a true party hotspot. Lastly see also entertainment areas around the BTS Sala Daeng Station.
