Walking Street in Pattaya is an ideal place to enjoy the bustling nightlife in Thailand with hundreds of bars, restaurants and nightclubs.
Pattaya Walking Street is the biggest and busiest party hotspot in the whole of Thailand, with only a couple of the top places in Bangkok beating it for sheer volume and variety. A full kilometre from its high-tech gateway at the Beach Road end to the Bali Hai Plaza end, almost every building along its length is a nightclub, go-go bar, beer bar or restaurant. Each of the side streets – which span from Soi 14 to Soi 16, with a couple of uniquely-named streets in between – is more of the same, making the whole southern end of the city into a warren of nightlife entertainments, with something for practically every taste.
Things to do
Come nightfall, Walking Street is closed to vehicles (6pm to 2am), This is when the floods of wide eyed young lads, veteran expats and Chinese tour groups come out to play. Hop on a taxi and get stuck in to Walking Street Pattaya.
If you want to ease yourself in before the inevitable carnage, this street has a number of places to eat. From Seafood to Italian the choice is international. There are also many live music venues, sports bars and many other forms of entertainment to tantalise you with.
If you like a spot of people watching, the beer bars are a great place to sit back and watch the world go by (you see some truly astonishing sights)! You can sit for hours watching this street come to life as it fills with the nights patrons.
Some highlights include nightclubs such as Insomnia and Mixx and several Agogo bars like Infinity, Glass House Agogo, Gentlemen’s Club Agogo, Sweethearts Agogo and many others. A couple of new venues recently opened their doors on such as 808 and The Pier which are also well worth checking out.
If you’ve never been to an Agogo bar before, Pattaya Walking Street is a good place to start. The greeting is always a friendly one and the beer is relatively cheap. Please note: Booze prices can vary wildly on Walking Street so remember to ask if they have deals on certain beers to avoid a shock when you receive your bill.
