If you are searching for an exclusive place to have dinner with your loved one, the Baiyoke Sky Rooftop Bar is the place to be.

Bangkok Ladyboy Shows

One top tourist attraction in Bangkok is the gorgeous transvestites or Katoeys at Thai Ladyboy shows. The one show you cannot afford to miss during your visit is the flashiest show performed at the Calypso Cabaret show by elegant ladyboys.

The Calypso Cabaret was launched in 1987 and included both classic and contemporary features. At these shows, you’ll be treated by katoeys who dance and sing to Thai, Korean, Chinese, Japanese, and other western traditional songs.

Bangkok Nightlife Markets

The Bangkok nightlife markets will make your time in the city memorable. The markets usually have various products, including shoes, clothes, food, and home appliances that attract shoppers from around the world.

The most talked-about market in Bangkok is Rod Fai 1, located at the rear of the Paradise Park. It is the biggest night market in Bangkok. Here, you’ll find everything you’re looking for, including phone accessories, pets, and electronic appliances. The only challenge is that many people visit the market every night, making it hard for shoppers to move around. Other nightlife markets you can visit include the Rod Fai 2, Chatuchak weekend market, Siam Gypsy Junction, Liab Duan, Rot Boran, and JJ Green Vintage.

Bangkok Nightclubs

If you’ve visited the city with your partying friends, then the Bangkok night clubs will treat you to a thrilling experience. Apart from the shopping areas and food courts, Bangkok’s night clubs attract many tourists. There are two famous night clubs that revelers should visit while in the city.

The Ku De Ta is regarded as the most lavish club in Bangkok. Apart from its location, the club also offers fine-dining restaurants, bars, and intimate live music. Roisterers can choose the Izakaya for a traditional Japanese taste or Signature for plush dining and the Grill if you want your regular steakhouse.

The second must-visit club is the Levels Club & Lounge Bangkok. Ranters will enjoy good quality music and performances from top DJs from around the world. The clubs are free to enter, but you’ll be charged a fee when the DJs are performing.
