Whether you like it or not, millions of tourists 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’s 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 take place inside go-go bar establishments. And contrary to popular belief, ladies working in the sex industry within all 3 red-light districts are not sex slaves or underage.
