In Thai, the name of Thailand’s largest city and capital is as dissimilar from ‘Bangkok’ as possible. Part of the city’s title in the native language is ‘Krug Thep Maha Nakhon’ or “City of Angels” - it seems that Bangkok and Los Angeles have more in common that just being two neon jungles filled with the world’s weird and wonderful people. We also offer cheap flights to Los Angeles, in case you are interested in finding out the differences and similarities between these cities.
The nightlife in Bangkok is notorious and it is without doubt one of the cornerstones of the city experience. Lately, large scale social reforms have reduced the closing hours of some places to 1am or 2am. But, good news for travellers who like the late late night lifestyle, there is always some kind of late night craic to be had at the informal street bars on the Khao San Road. For those with more exotic tastes there is always the district of Silan, home of the world famous go go club ‘Patpong’ which simply as a spectacle draws all types of people in their hoards.
