Here is a visit out of the tracks in Bangkok Patpong district. The Patpong Museum.

Located just below the Black Pagoda the museum offers a 100 years history visit with a private collection, going through Patpong’s best-kept secrets.

Those who might have mixed feelings about visiting the place don’t hesitate it’s worth it, even the sexy part +18 has nothing creepy and everything is done with taste.

Did you know that Patpong was a banana plantation purchased by a Chinese family for 60000 ฿? (1600 USD)

Learn how the first bars opened and how Patpong became the CIA headquarters among other exciting stories like David Bowie falling in love with the district or a well-known star receiving a ping pong girl on her face during a show…

The visit is captivating and full of original stories, you will admire a Patpong mockup and be surprised by some fun activities like catching some ping pong balls (from a machine) or be put to the test to discover on a board some ladies’ photos and guess if they are real ladies or Ladyboys. Not so easy 🙂

The visit is well done and interesting about the stories of Patpong, maybe not for all public but don’t hesitate to bring your girl too.


Entrance Fee: ฿350 (more options available on their website including visits and shows at the real bars)
