As if we’re getting to the last 3 weeks of our trip?? It’s gone so so quick! We’ve both really been looking forward to Thailand as it’s a perfect chance for us to really relax. We spent our first few days in patong which really got us stuck into the Thai way of life! Bikes everywhere, selling food of the back of cars and massages every single place you look!
We went to Bangla Road, we just HAD to check it out! So we got ready and walked in that direction! On our way we realised that the electricity had gone off on one side of the street. So all of the bars & restaurants were in pitch black and started using candles and music from their phones! It was really cute! We walked past a converted VW Van which looked amazing so we stopped off for a drink.
We then found our way to Bangla Road which was just mental! It was so busy and every single person is trying to drag you into their bars and into the Ping pong shows. Now I’m not 100% what they are…but I’m guessing it’s not for me. Hahahahaha. We started the night with just a simple beer in a quieter bar watching the madness.
Haha!! They were actually quite nice & I think it’s a must to have a cocktail bucket when in Thailand. Next thing I know Thom is at the bar buying sambuca shots!!! Ugh oh!! It got messy from there and we ended up playing games with the barmaids. Connect 4 which she was amazing at, honestly she smashed us in every game! Then another game where you had to hit a nail into a piece of wood. Sounds silly, but after a few drinks you cannot hit that nail on the head. She also smashed us at that. Well done!!
The bars were mental and each and every one was busy. Full of tourists & locals enjoying their night. We had a really good night here and I’m glad it turned out into a messy one! We were so glad we had a hotel with a pool the next day to soak off our hangovers!! Bangla road is a must!!! Make sure you get some cocktail buckets too!!
