Street, Soi 1 and Soi 2 Photos
This page takes in Second Rd,
Drinking Street, Soi 1 and Soi
2. Drinking Street is a beer bar complex on
the eastern side of Second Road. There is about 12 bars
in this complex. There are a couple of bars that have
moved here from near Soi 1 and Soi 2. They were displaced
from those area due to redevelopment.
This complex is where this tour starts. I
decided to take the photos during the day as do so in daylight
is much easier than at night. Also much more details can be
gathered in the day that is hidden in darkness at night. As a
consequence most bar will appear quiet but that is not always
the case at night.

Noi Bar Beer shown in this photo is one of
the bars displaced due to redevelopment in other areas. This
bar was located near Soi 2 on Second Road.

due to redevelopment. This bar was located near Soi 1 on Second

lovely ladies. They were very active on the dancing poles. I

I thought that this was a rather
unusual construction on the roof of this building. We are now
getting close to Soi 1.
just a general shoot of Second Road.
The sign with the big star on top in the distance is for Big C
which is a big shopping centre.
Here is a closer look at the structure on
the roof. Looks like it has Chinese origins to me.
This is one of the constructions that
displace some beer bars. It is on the corner of Soi 1.

From Soi 1 it is only a short distance
