Whether you like it or not, millions of tourist come to Bangkok to indulge in the sex industry. It plays a large part in tourism and ultimately the economy. Because anyone visiting the red light districts needs a place to stay, eat and play. Bangkok red light areas are famous for open girls.
But many tourists without the intention of paying for sex with a prostitute still walk through the lanes of red light districts, just to see what it’s like. So you will often find couples, older couples and even groups of foreign ladies giggling at older lecherous foreign men with a bar girl on their laps.
As seedy as a red light district may sound, in Bangkok they are relatively safe. A police presence is always close by. Just watch your wallets and purses though. All of the nefarious acts of flesh peddling mostly takes place inside go go bar establishments. And contrary to popular beliefs, ladies working in the sex industry within all 3 red light districts are not sex slaves or underage.
