Let’s visit Soi Thaniya, one of Bangkok’s famous nightlife districts on Silom Road. It’s located just next to the BTS SkyTrain Sala Daeng Station and is also known by locals as ‘Little Tokyo’.
Soi Thaniya comes alive after the night falls. That’s when you’ll see the neon signs glow brightly up and down the lane to promote a range of men’s karaoke venues, go-go bars and massage shops. Also, there are a lot of Japanese food options and a number of street food stalls here. With most signage in Japanese language and nearly all businesses targeting exclusively on Japanese clientele, it’s no surprise why we know the soi as ‘Little Tokyo’. Or you may think of this place as Patpong, another nearby famous nightlife area, but without a night market.
This well-known street looks very different between daytime and nighttime. By day, it looks like a normal tourist area with many businesses and restaurants. However, by night, it becomes a busy nightlife spot that attracts many clubgoers, especially Japanese people.
We’ve already mentioned about Soi Thaniya as a nightlife destination, however, there are more to explore at this place, especially authentic Japanese food.
As the nickname suggests, The Little Tokyo is home to different styles of Japanese eateries. Choices include ramen shops, sushi places, yakiniku restaurants, laid-back bars and much more. Some of the famous Japanese restaurants are here, too. For example, Tsukiji is a go-to place for sushi and sashimi lovers. Interestingly, the place is named after the famous fish market in Tokyo. Next, if you are a big fan of ramen, you should try one at Ramentei. Based on many reviews, you can expect to enjoy a big bowl of ramen with the same great taste whenever you come. What about yakiniku lovers? Let us recommend some popular Japanese BBQ restaurants here. Of course, you will love a visit to the first branch of Gyu-Kaku restaurant in Thailand at Soi Thaniya. Here, you can enjoy a range of premium meats and delicious a la carte dishes.
Soi Thaniya is located next to the BTS SkyTrain Sala Daeng Station. The best time to visit here is, of course, at nighttime.
