Soi Cowboy is a red-light district in the Sukhumvit area of Bangkok. A busy pedestrian street at night with some 40 bars. Soi Cowboy is similar to Nana Plaza and Patpong and caters mainly to tourists and expatriates The go go bars follow the pattern common in Thailand: alcoholic drinks are served and women in bikinis dance on a stage. Topless or even nude dancing occasionally occurs in some bars, but remains technically illegal. Most of the dancers are also prostitutes and will join a customer if he pays a "bar fine" to the bar and a separate fee to the woman. Sexual services usually take place in the tourist's hotel room.
