Bangla Road in Patong is the heart of the tourist sex industry in Phuket. This is where you will find the great mass of beer bars and go-gos.
Soi Easy, Soi Gonzo, Soi Crocodile, Soi Eric are all side streets with complexes or beer bars. Tiger Live Band is a large beer bar complex that has quickly become the most popular complex since it opened in 2011. These complexes are full of small beer bars and there are literally hundreds of girls ready to entertain customers.
Soi Seadragon is a wider soi, recently rennovated, with beer bars down the middle and larger bars on each side. This soi has some go-gos and is also the location of the sex shows with ping-pong balls, darts, etc. The famous Suzie Wongs is at the end on the right hand side. They give the customers foam tubes that they can use to slap the girls bums. It is totally painless but makes a load slap sound. This soi also has a number of normal bars with live music.
There are other go-gos at the top of Bangla Road.
There are also a variety of normal nightlife venues in and around Soi Bangla with live music, sports screens, pool tables and food.
The line of bars on the road from Moon Bar down to Ned Kelly's are popular drinking spots to watch the action on Bangla Road. Most of these bars do have working girls but because they are on the street, they are less obvious about wrapping themselves around poles and pushing themselves on potential customers. Many tourists drink at these bars to people-watch.
The discos such as Tiger, Tai Pan, Hollywood, Seduction and Banana are not actively engaged in the sex industry. However, there will be girls freelancing at these bars and men looking for them.
