Bangla Road is one of the top Phuket attractions and for a good cause. It is something that you cannot truly understand until you have seen it with your own eyes. On the main Bangla Road are bars lining both sides of the road. There are several side roads (called Soi’s) leading from Bangla Road which are more like entertainment complexes then actual roads. These complexes are loaded with beer bars and full of beautiful Thai girls. If you are a first time visitor to Soi Bangla, it is like something out of a deranged fantasy. If you are a man, it could be your greatest dream come true. This is the heart of the Phuket sex industry and there is nothing subtle about it. In almost every bar, you will find scantily clad Thai girls and a fair share of men that look like girls, some dancing on poles, others on the road coaxing customers into various bar, the rest sitting around talking with customers, hoping to earn some cash for the night.
