Dont take it seriously and have a laugh. The place comes to life after dark...and if you are a table tennis enthusiast...you are in for a shock.

Wow... This street is buzzing with all sorts of crazy... Crazy people, crazy clubs, crazy entertainment. You can't help but feel apprehensive when walking this street, the best thing is to go without bags of any kind. Keep money and as much as you need in your pockets. The ping pong show was definitely an eye opener, so for those... More

Nightlife doesn't really attract me so maybe I'm a little biased. But to have to pay 1200b for a drink to watch one of those running pingpong/sex shows is not really my thing. Street was pretty vibrant with pubs and all that, highlight on that street was the 5D virtual experience which was quite amusing.

Bangla Road. Mmmm..... Bangla Road is cool, but the sex industry on this street has really taken over. You can't walk a single meter without being rush by multiple people saying ping pong show. The street is covered with women trying to get you in their bar. On Bangla Road, there is aboubt 5 strip joints and to the right... More

To many people try to sell you thinks and take u in the bars for drink or ping pong show or a strip club or sell u drugs and many other thinks I think Bangla road will be 1000 times better without them and the bars more busy very stupid to do this

It's hard to rate this place, it all depends on what you're into. If want cheap booz and a lot of options for bars then this is a 5 star, but it's also pretty gross, you see rats and roaches roaming about in the alleys and those sort of things. there's a lot going on here

Came here last year same time. As soon as we landed we headed straight to Bangla Road. Excitement was an understatement we both wanted to take in the culture the smell of food and the hustle and bustle of the streets. The heavens opened up fiercely and we invested in some poncho rain macs. The warm rain was beautiful. We... More

I've visited Bangla with my girlfriend and both of us had a lot fun on this street. The bars are mainly very entertaining and you can really enjoy the atmosphere, which Bangla road offers. I expected to be even more crazy like it was, but I still enjoyed it very much. The only thing, which was little annoying was the... More
