Discover Silom Road nightlife - Bangkok
Silom Road is a well-known corporate ground for its financial institutions, commercial complex, and for its shopping and business districts. But at night, it becomes the best red light district where you can spend your evenings in Bangkok. For many foreigners, Silom is the most popular place to be, because it not only caters to those who love to sit down and drink, but it also has numerous bars and clubs where you can find that specific flavor of fun.
If you want to have the sky as your party floor, then head down to the Sky Bar at the Lebua State Tower. After being part of the movie, The Hangover II, it has garnered immense success and is known to get packed every night. However, its party atmosphere is always overshadowed by the gorgeous birds-eye view of the city below. To cap off the night, visit Maggie Choo’s, a snazzy drinking spot located in the basement of Novotel Bangkok Fenix Silom Hotel, and enjoy sipping your last glass of the day, surrounded by its Cantonese-inspired design. Another area which you should not miss is the Patpong district. Here, you will be able to rekindle your party spirit and get a chance to bring something back with you from the night market.
The simplest way to get to Silom is by MRT. You can hop on in any station in Bangkok, get off at Silom station, and the entrance of Lumphini Park will be near you. You can also take the Chao Phraya Express boat from Phahurat or Yaowarat. Ticket costs around 18 Baht.
The opening hours of Silom’s evening establishments vary, and only some are allowed to stay open until 2:00 am. Trip Guru would like to remind you to be wary of your surroundings for it can get pretty crowded and rough during its peak hours. It is also wise to bring a couple of friends along with you.
