What happens in Walking Street Thailand?

Home » More Thailand dating blogs


Walking Street in Pattaya, Thailand is a popular entertainment and red-light district known for its vibrant nightlife. This area attracts both tourists and locals, offering a variety of attractions such as seafood restaurants, live music venues, beer bars, discothèques, sports bars, go-go bars, nightclubs, and hotels. Visitors can enjoy a range of activities, including watching sex shows.


Originally a roadway for Pattaya’s fishing industry, Walking Street evolved into a hub for entertainment and services for soldiers on break in the 1960s and 1970s. The area saw the development of hotels, bars, and restaurants, earning the nickname “The Strip.” Over the years, cabaret performances and discotheques became prevalent, leading to the street’s closure to vehicles after 6 p.m. in the 1990s. This led to its current name, Walking Street.


Walking Street is also known for its significant presence of prostitutes, both female and male. While prostitution is illegal in Thailand, it is estimated that thousands of prostitutes work in Pattaya, many of them along Walking Street. Clients often pay a bar fine to take them out of the establishments. Despite efforts to curb the sex trade, it continues to thrive in this area.

Redevelopment Efforts

In recent years, there have been proposals to redevelop parts or all of Walking Street to shift away from its association with sex tourism to more family-friendly venues. Various plans have been introduced to address issues such as building encroachment on public land and illegal property extensions.
