8. Nana Entertainment Plaza
I’ve seen most of the people coming to Bangkok for enjoying night life, and therefore the whole Sukhumvit Road has a lot to offer, it’s 30 minutes away from the Suvarnabhumi Airport, and if you are a night-life lover then do stay between Sukhumvit Soi 4 to Soi 20, where you’ll find a lot of hotels, clubs and night bars. However, the famous one is called “Nana Entertainment Plaza”, this is located in Sukhumvit Soi 4 and has a bunch of bars and girls all together. See the image below of Nana Plaza.

Cow Boy is another entertainment plaza with a lot of Go-Go bars, but this is a little smaller than Nana Plaza. However, you can still find a night life in this area. There are a few quality massage centers on the street just opposite Cow Boy. Cow Boy is located on Sukhumvit soi 21 just a few minutes away from Nana Entertainment Plaza. See below image of Cow Boy.
