Pattaya comes to life in the evening, the city is filled with colorful lights and lovely music. The very heart of Pattaya nightlife is definitely Walking Street. Here is the largest concentration of nightclubs, bars, cafes and restaurants which serve cuisines from different countries.
The night life here begins after 22:00 and the action takes place until 05:00 in the morning every day, 7 days a week. Even if you are not a nightlife clubber, it is still worth visiting this street. Here you will meet many extraordinary people, for example, ladyboys who offer their love to farangs for comparatively cheap prices. Sometimes it is not easy to distinguish between ladyboys and Thai girls.
Walking Street is a hot spot for promoters and advertisers who invite guests to clubs and shows for adults. They get a percentage from the sum of money their guests leave in the club. They often attract tourists with different promotions - for example, buy 1 cocktail - get the second free.
In clubs you can often hear Thai and foreign music playing. Near Bali Hai Pier there is a night club Russo Turisto which is popular among Russian people.
You can get to Walking Street from any point in Pattaya by taxi, motorbike taxi or tuk-tuk.
