“funeral parlour of forgotten and hopeless”
Reviewed 14 August 2014

lets be clear soi cowboy is the place morality and decency forgot. these girls have no choice, are modtly poorly educated and as morally reprehensible as it may be their families demand they take care of them. if you want to help these girls support one if the charities seeking to develop positive opportunities. if you want sex go home and sleep with your wife or girlfriend. if you want a drink go to one of the many beach resorts and relax by the sea. dont be one of those guys who seems to think.its ok to do.in thailand what you wouldnt do at home.

“Thai entertainment complex”
Reviewed 9 August 2014

This place is located on Sukhumvit Road, not far from Sukhumvit/Asoke BTS station.
Visited here twice , one time with my wife and one time with my friends.Cheerful lights could be seen all over the Soi Cowboy streets and alleys , all the bar and pubs here are quite similar ,gogo bars ,and topless show bars.Usually crowded from 10 pm until 3am.
Many girls or katoeys (ladyboys) gathered outside the bars and invite us in, for guys be prepared to be dragged in haha.Noticed also that there are some gay bars too here.
This area is not for everyone , especially the fainted hearts.
For us, its quite an experience, something different, just approach with open minds.

I had heard a lot about this place from family and friends all advising me to go there once atleast! well the experience was not too good. I felt too sorry for the girls there... seeing the girls getting naked for money was the last thing that I wanted to see...and they all looked so young!- maybe 14 or 15 year olds. The men are the ones who get ripped apart literally! I was amazed to see how many lonely men exist on this planet or was it that they are desperate for sex?!!...Not sure!

“Intriguing world.”
Reviewed 3 August 2014 via mobile

Soi Cowboy is a unique experience, just go there and get a feeling of this superficial but intriguing world. Best visit after 23:00 when it gets busy. It is next to metrostop Sukhumvit.

As a man, be prepared for girls who try to drag you into one of the go-go bars for a drink. Just politely refuse (or join, if you are into that) and they let you pass. Best is to sit somewhere down, order a drink and enjoy Soi Cowboy street life. I would recommend to seat yourself in front of the club 'Cockatoo' where the famous ladyboys try to attract customers.

“bar hopping”
Reviewed 30 July 2014

We went in to pretty much every bar and club. Since I was brown skinned they assumed I was local and was ignored most of the time. Getting to the club was rather funny and was surprised with how many girls would come up to you and ask for just a cola. For less than $5 why not. :) There were about 25 girls inside it was ridiculous. It was hard to get into a conversation though since most of them do not speak English. On another note, if you like vodka cran, they do not mix it very well and cranberry is not as available as other juices. Just stick to beer or shots. :) Oh watch out for the ping pongs!
