Walking Street, Pattaya
Walking Street is quite similar to Bangla Street in Phuket. Be assured that there will be many people crowding the streets, especially the "working girls" who call you to go into their bars to spend lots of Bahts on drinks & them. There is an area I went to with plenty of bars under one roof where you can watch staged kick boxing matches. The street is closed between 7pm and midnight so you can survey the area slowly, watch people and try out some local food. Have an open mind when you come here because some of the activities may stun you, especially for someone like me.
I'm sure everyone has heard about walking street in one way or another. To me it's not as bad as some people say and definitely worth a visit when in pattaya. There is a lot of girly bars here but there also some great places for a drink, shopping and of course to eat. A great area to sit in a bar with a cold beer and do some people watching, when you get hungry you can just dive into one of the many seafood restaurants here. This street is open to traffice by day but closes around 7-7.30pm and is then only to pedestrians.
Dress Code: No dresscode as such, just wear whatever you're comfortable in.
After exploring the walking street and also many others near it, we usually ended up at this bar until it closed. The bar is actually not right on the Walking Street itself, but just to the left of the main sign of the road. It was my first real taste of the stories I have heard from other people, old men with younger Thai ladies. Even though I have seen it in other places in Thailand, here in this bar even I felt very young...haha.
The bar was quite busy on the night we visited, and after you get used to seeing the "D.O.M", it was not too bad at all. The bar has plenty of seating while you watch the live bands, and the service/staff were good to us.
The activity that made us laugh the most was the dance styles of some of these men, it was very entertaining to say the least. Some guys wouldn't move too much at all, other "viagra induced men" would make up for it however.
The band played a mix of western and Thai music, and this kept the crowd moving in between the DJ tunes.
We had a fun time here even though I don't like seeing the old man-young girl stuff too much. If I come back to Pattaya I still might stop by for a drink or two again though, it wasn't that bad.
Dress Code: No dress code that I noticed, but here the most popular was the slacks, shirt, and dress shoes for the guys (just kidding).
No really, what ever you feel comfortable in is good for this bar.
well if u can imagine as a disneyland for men u wud be correct. sure once a man (we are 22 so not their cliche market targets but nonetheless ....) u leave ur hotel and minute u step outside day or night to the hot, noisy, (slightly smelly from open sewers) pattaya, u are greeted for hollering and screaming girls who are bidding for ur attention, i think the city has 250,000 of such. walking strret is the main area for strip bars, go go bars, clubs though everywhere has these here, its a 24hr spot where u see guys 18-80 with women about 16-mid 20s in tiny dresses and bars full of eager women offering themselves to you for night or 24 for about 1000B (20 euro) if its your cup of tea. not for guys who are committed to their gf's or wives as we found out !!
Great place to people watch in Walking Street.
Stoney is an Aussie but despite that is a great guy, and usually in attendance.
They have the obligatory TV for Sports events, music that still lets you have a conversation without shouting.
Staff are attentive and welcome you with a really nice cold towel and are happy to leave you alone for as long as you want to sit there.
Best of all, they sell Strongbow ( 120 Baht per bottle )
Dress Code: Usual for Pattaya, anything goes.
Anybody who has been to or researched Pattaya will know about "Walking street".Here without going in to great detail,there is something for everybody,as the title says"Disneyland for adults"is very apt.
Found this quirky VW Camper converted into a bar, it was parked in a side soi (road) at the South Harbour entrance to Walking street...how cool is that?
Dress Code: N/A
Pattaya walking street is the craziest area in Pattaya. If you don't like girlie-bars, get out of this street.
Located in south Pattaya Walking Street (International Meeting Street) or adult Disneyland is perhaps the most famous street in town full with beer bars go-go bars discotheques and restaurants
