Bangkok's gogo bars are in serious decline. Fewer girls working means fewer customers and fewer customers means less, or even no profit. But the issues go far beyond a mere shortage of girls and protests on the streets of downtown Bangkok which killed the high season have masked problems in Bangkok's famed foreigner red light districts that have been festering for some time. Predictions of doom and gloom about the bar industry have been flying from my keyboard for years.
The Thailand nightlife is great, and although prices have increased over the years, you can still have an amazing time with the Thai girls for a reasonable cost. Of course it depends on what city you go, and which types of Thai girls you prefer to get. It can either be very affordable, or it can even make you completely destroy your life.
