Home » More Thailand dating blogs

Soi Cowboy is a popular entertainment district in Bangkok, known for its vibrant nightlife and bustling atmosphere. Located between Sukhumvit Soi 23 and Asoke Road, Soi Cowboy is a short street that comes alive at night, with approximately 40 entertainment venues on either side of the street.

The Origin of Soi Cowboy

Soi Cowboy got its name from an African American retired U.S. airman named T.G. Edwards, who opened a bar on the street in 1977. He was known for always wearing a cowboy hat and naming his first bar the Cowboy Bar. The name stuck, and the street became known as Soi Cowboy (Soi means street in Thai).

What to Expect at Soi Cowboy

Visitors to Soi Cowboy can explore a variety of entertainment venues, including go-go bars, restaurants, and even a ladyboy bar called The Cockatoo. For those looking for a more laid-back experience, The Oasis offers a sports and music pub atmosphere with great food and drinks.

Safety Tips for Visiting Soi Cowboy

Soi Cowboy is generally safe to visit, but it’s important to exercise caution, especially in the bars. Pay for your drinks as you go and avoid getting into any confrontations. If you feel uncomfortable or threatened, it’s best to leave quietly and report any issues to the Tourist Police.

Comparing Soi Cowboy to Other Nightlife Areas

In comparison to other nightlife zones in Bangkok like Patpong and Nana Plaza, Soi Cowboy offers a unique experience with its mix of entertainment options. While Patpong is the oldest area and Nana Plaza boasts itself as the “world’s largest adult playground,” Soi Cowboy provides a diverse selection of bars and restaurants for visitors to enjoy.
