A trip to Bangkok is not complete without experiencing its night. The nightlife in Bangkok is an amazing experience and there are offers for all tastes. Bangkok neighbourhoods that concentrate most of the nightlife of the city are the districts of Patpong and Soi Cowboy. The Soi Cowboy neighbourhood is named after the first bar opened in the area, the Cowboy Bar. These neighbourhoods are also known as the "red-light districts".
