An entertainment district, Nana is the place to be if you want to experience a wild night in Bangkok without getting everything lost in translation. When the sun goes down, Nana comes alive. Hotels, international restaurants and bars are lined up on the famous Soi 11, which largely caters to tourists. The soi hosts chic rooftop bars like Above 11 and Nest, but if you’re into hip-hop or enjoy dancing to songs you know all the words to, try the ever-popular Levels nightclub. However, the area gets a bit sketchy when you wander onto Soi 4; the alley serves as another of Bangkok’s famous red light districts. It doesn’t get wilder than this street’s infamous Nana Plaza. And, when you get hungry, Soi 3 features some famous 24-hour Middle Eastern restaurants.
