What is the nightlife like in Bangkok?

Well, this gay travel guide thinks that Bangkok is one of the best party cities you can find. It has plenty to offer everyone, including wild nightlife of course, and the LGBTQ nightlife culture rivals that of any city in the world.

You should definitely try to go to one of the many cabarets, clubs, pubs, karaoke or go-go bars even if it’s not generally your thing. And if it is your thing, you’re going to absolutely love it. Of course, one of the best things is how welcoming Thai culture is of the LGBTQ population in general, which means that you are certain to have some unforgettable nights out.

In summary, going out at night in Bangkok offers everything you could possibly desire, along with a few things you might not have known you wanted.
