Soi Twilight

Soi Twilight (Soi Pratuchai)

Surawong, Bangkok | map | distance

audience rating 3.2 stars from 12 votes - click to vote

Located about a 5-minute walk from the Silom Soi 4 gay bars, Soi Twilight (also known as “Soi Pratuchai” in Thai) is known as Bangkok’s gay ‘red light district’. This small walkway is home to a number of gay go-go dance bars that cater almost exclusively to foreigners and offer a very different experience from the Silom scene.

These venues host stage shows that can be fun to watch if not taken too seriously. The content can range from erotic dancing to routines that leave only a little to the imagination.

In these bars, you pay for the company of a guy by purchasing both yourself and him a drink and then tipping him when you leave.

There are more local gay bars outside of the Silom nightlife district. These venues attract mostly local Thai customers, but foreigners are welcome. Best to take a taxi.

These bars are worth a visit if you’re in the mood for something ‘non-scene’.  They are located within hotels, so you will need to dress up a bit.  For dining options, check our Bangkok Restaurants page.
