Important Part is Safety

You should always pay attention to your surrounding areas to avoid any kind of mishaps in such highly crowded places. Keep yourself continuously updated about the safety precautions measures you need to consider during your stay here.

I have not come across any problems as such in particular to mention in any of these areas, but it’s always best to keep your eyes and ears and mind alert. 

Though noticed some issues which crop up in between the customers (foreigners) and the bar manager/bouncers. Most of the problems that can come can be avoided easily. Here are the things that can happen in a bad situation:

  1. Don’t disagree with bill payment
  2. Rude behavior from drunk customers
  3. Don’t behave rudely with the waitress or bouncers but you might also notice abusive behavior from them
  4. Problems with the dancers (she leaves after you bought her drink, or the customer is too aggressive with the bar girl)
  5. No Arguments with other foreigners (rare)

As you can see, these are the things to look out for when you decide to party in such places.

 In General experience, Bangkok has safe red-light districts. The best thing is to follow your gut feeling and do as per your judgment. If you feel uncomfortable among one of the places and is not going right for you, then the best is to exit from the area and move to another area only.

 Even if you think you are not being treated with good behavior, just leave that place and don’t get into any argument in these types of places, especially in a foreign city.
