Just a few days ago I went over to Angels Oil Massage which is right on Sukhumvit Soi 24/1. Plenty of oil massage parlors on Suk 24/1 and still a rather quite area.
Anti-government protestors have successfully scared off many tourists, though not the seasoned whore mongers. Bangkok still draws a lot of go go bar and massage patrons. It's just not as much as before November 2013, when the protestors started taking to the streets and occupying key intersections and scaring off foreign visitors.
I've been staying clear of Soi Cowboy because that's just one key location where protestors are camped out.
So I've been going to Nana Plaza's go go bars where it's protestor free. Maybe the scary looking ladyboys are scaring them off.
And even though Nana is not as crowded with sex tourisits a lot of ladies are still working in the bars. Which means you won't have a whole lot of competition.
Patpong's go go bars is not a bad option either and I've been spending a little bit more time there because to me, Patpong's go go bars are getting better. I'll have a report on that later.
What does this mean? Is it still safe to mess around in Bangkok?. Me think so. Protestors don't harass tourists. They even encourage them to join in. I'm not kidding.
So, if you're reading this post, and you're a newbie first time visitor and still want to take a chance on whoring around Bangkok, my advice is to stay at hotels near Nana, the oil massage parlors of Phrom Phong or even near the soapy massage parlors up in Huay Kwang.
Those areas are problem free (as of writing) and I don't think protestors will camp out in those areas because it is not of any significant importance.
Just keep in mind, if it's freelancers and go go bars you're looking for head to Nana Entertainment Plaza. For oil massage and soapy massage make way to Phrom Phong and Huay Kwang respectively.
The BTS (Sky Trains) and MRT (subway trains) are running normally with protest leaders saying they won't disrupt those services. So both train systems are still your go to options for visiting those naughty boy points of interest.
