Bangkok Nightlife Areas

Where to Go at Night in Bangkok

After the sun wanes, Bangkok gets its second breath. The heavy traffic subsides, the mad rush is over. This energized city bustles with things to, be it shopping, clubbing, bar flying, fine dining, a cinema, bowling or a cultural show. Tracking these venues down can be a daunting task for first-timers and, so, here we've compiled five nightlife prime areas and descriptions of all that's found within each one. All these areas can easily be reached by using either the BTS (Skytrain) or MRT (underground system). Planning that legendary night out doesn't get any easier than this!

Bangkok Hottest Nightlife Areas
Ratchadapisek (RCA)

Young partygoers should head straight for Royal City Avenue. More commonly known as RCA, this long road is one of a few government-designated nightlife zones. Read More...

Khao San Road Nightlife

Khao San Road takes off at night: neon signs flicker into life, music begins blasting from streetside sound systems, while the masses begin mapping out about a long night. Read More...

Chinatown Nightlife

Bangkok's Old City does not have what one would call a nightlife scene. For that, you'd be better off heading to nearby Khao San Road for an anything-goes vibe.  Read More...
